Tried to use the S today and the mouse green cross is not there it is in the Index and the Rift ??

You get the white dot to use things like coms menu options etc. but, not the green cross needed to use switches

Disregard turned out that for some reason use controllers got checked unchecked works. "DOH"

My performance in today's patch has dropped big time. I'm hitting the 30s and a lot of stuttering. I've only tried the Hornet so far and yes I deleted the shader folders. Anyone else having issues?

Yes pimp, I’ve noticed a degradation too. I only fly A10C, so I can’t comment on other modules. I haven’t got any FPS data but things aren’t running smooth at all on my usual settings. It was much better before. And I’m getting full-blown stutters, which I’ve never had before. Boo!

This must have been asked a 1000 times, but I wasn't able to find the answer :helpsmilie:

 

Is there a way to get the DCS run in full screen on my monitor while in VR?

 

Now it's centered view and only using like 1/3 of my screen. Lately I've had some troubles with accidentally clicking on the border of the screen (looking down in VR and trying to flip that one little switch), which results in DCS not being my active screen and me activating all kind of programs on my desktop :doh:

I found Voiceattack (~10USD) has a command 'max window' that defeats the windows problem that alt-tab out of dcs windows restores DCS screen Alt-Enter.

 

Stays maxed.

anybody here upgrade from riftcv1 to the rift s... is the resolution improvement even noticable in DCS

 

Yes I did back in May, and am pleased with the increase in clarity.

Yes, I did just that. It was a remarkable increase in clarity and detail for me, even with zero super sampling.

Great to lose the tracking cameras and much more comfy to wear in my opinion.:thumbup:

HP Reverb, new level of sharp, software worse, sharpness degrade outside rather small center spot, $$$.

The only 'proper functioning' VR is that 6000$ one, that your grandchild can buy, if he has a job, if the world still exists, but heh, those are just details.

Im a VR User since the DK2 release,had the CV1 from Release and the Rift S.The HP Reverb, is a nearly perfect VR Experience in my opinion with a 2080Ti. The Software is not Plug&Play like Oculus home,but not bad and works fine. I dosen't need another HMD for the next three years

 

It's a Dream to fly DCS with this HMD,because it's so real.

Using the Oculus Rift. Do you also need "steam VR" running to play DCS

Just picked up the oculus s I have owned 2 cv1s in the past very happy with improvements e..t.c

 

Any quick tips on setup compared to the cv1 I know I should go look and search lol but any major differences I should be aware of with the oculus s.

 

Thank you jamie.

You should be able to pretty much run the same settings as you were with the CV1. Should be able to lower the PD some. On my rig I am running pretty high settings with 1.2 PD and 4x MSAA.

No USB output on Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2080 Super Windforce OC 8G Graphics Card that I have just ordered,

is this going to cause trouble with my Rift-S ? or should I cancel and buy a different card.

I got this one at a good price.

Personnaly, today, having a USB port on my GPU would be a pre-requisite. Why ? Because my 1080ti don't have one and I had some headaches to understand why I needed often to unplug and plug again the Rift to be able to play... And when I learnt that it could be caused by the USB bandwith shared by multiple devices, It was not so easy to find a compatible PCIe USB cards with my motherboard and the need of the Rift S.

 

However, it doesn't mean that it's not possible to have a working Rift S with no USB port on your GPU.

 

To have no issue, your Rift must have its own USB controller with all the bandwith dedicated to him. Good news, your motherboard have many USB controllers. Check the manual but if you are able to isolate one of them for your Rift, it will be probably OK and everything will works fine. If not possible, you will have to buy a PCIe USB 3.1gen1 card.

 

Warning: Don't buy card with USB 3.1gen 2 port because they often use ASMEDIA controller and it is well known that this controller create stutters....

 

It seems that Renesas µPD720201 controller works well. Oculus suggest one card with this controller. I bought another card with this controller and it works perfectly now.

 

But for sure, if you are able to cancel you order and find another GPU, it could be safer and good idea

LOL, if i only would have known this earlier.

Needed to hotplug the USB from my Rift-S also on a regular basis because of device not being recognized after a boot (not always but sometimes). Searched the net, found quite a few things and a solution (but not what you have written above or i would have bought another PCI card). So i bought a USB PCI card, the one recommended by Oculus was out of stock so i went for a Startech USB 3.1 one with 2 ports on it. After 1 weeks of working without a problem and without the device not recognized problem, i saw some stutter while moving my head with the Rift-S. It was everywhere, in IL-2 (i first noticed it in there), DCS and also in Oculus Home. Asked my wife to put it on and asked her to tell me what annoyed her. She said... stutter!!!

I searched again everywhere, found a couple of possible solutions but not on them worked. Then tried every thing i could think of which gave no solution but forgot one major thing, switching back to the motherboards USB (i did swap between the 2 USB 3.1 ports on the PCI card). In the end i returned the Rift-S thinking it was faulty because the stutter only occurred when moving my head, so when tracking was active.

Got another Rift-S as replacement which had the same problem. Only then i swapped the USB back to the motherboard USB port and problem gone.

I searched a bit further and i did find that it could be solved with additional power on the card. Because i had to re-route every thing inside the case to get there i didn't do that. I then re-arranged every thing in the case to be able to plug that extra power into the card and it had worked fine for 2 weeks until yesterday when i noticed a slight stutter on the Oculus Dash...

 

 

Thinking the extra power would have solved it i searched into another direction and came up to the fact that you lose half of the PCI lanes if you install a PCI-USB card (it shows in GPU-Z). A further search showed that running on 8 PCI lanes instead of 16 would give max around 1% loss in performance. This morning i had no stutter but when DCS loaded i noticed again some stutter on the loading image which isn't normally there so after reading the above, it think i found the problem... my Startech PCI-USB 2x 3.1 has an ASMEDIA controller. So i need something else...

 

 

Edit: Finding info on the exact controller those cards have on board is not always easy.

@Lange: Sorry to hear all the issues you encountered.

 

Very important !!!! : buy a PCIe card with power provided directly from the PC alimentation. Power provided by the PCIe port can not be enough to cover the needs of the Rift S in all situation.

 

For info, I bought this card : Exsys EX-11092-2

The card has a jumper to decide if you want Power from PCIe or from PC Alimentation. By default it is set for PCIe port, so it has to be moved.

 

My motherboard is an Asus Rog Strix Z370 egaming and I can garantee it is compatible with it. However cards with VIA controllers are not (or at least the model I tried first)
