I dunno but I like what I see without MSAA for now, but I may turn it back on later, who knows. 😄  Anyway, some already complain about Oculus doing too much sharpening.

 

Nah, i think the sharpening level is spot on, great work from Oculus team

Who needs sharpening? I see pixels all too good - I need antialiasing or some fast smart upscaling.

With the way Oculus are going I could see them bring something like this in. I mean the Q2 must have a GPU inside as its standalone. I guess its used for the decoding of link signal but maybe there is a little left for AA...

MSAA will gives you less aliased image at the cost of some blurry, sharpening from oculus gives you better clarity and more aliased picture.

 

Im surprised you NOW turn off MSAA, in any case you will need more.

 

P.D: i have V33 too

Yeah, I was going to experiment with adding MFAA in Nvidia control panel on top of DCS MSAA. I have tried this before and the effect is very very minimal, but might just take the edge off the extra sparkles.

I'm curious - had you folks not tried reshade CAS sharpening? To me it seems very similar results. Of course it's good it's natively added in oculus now!

 I am answering it here: the nice thing about sharpening in V33 is that it does not consume any processing power of the host computer. I dunno if it is the latest OB or it is the V33, DCS runs slightly better. I am at full 80 fps in the F/A-18C 2 vs 2 Fox 2 mission at NTTR map.

Does this V33 only apply to quest 2 or it also capply to rift S?

Well, V33 is just Oculus software version, so it works with Rift S but the benefits of Link sharpening do not apply because Rift S does not use Oculus Link.

Hello,

I just installed the Oculus Rift S on my computer, but have no idea how to make it work with DCS. Noting I do makes the Rift S show the simulator in the screens. In fact, the only thing I can see is the external image in the room I'm at. Can someone point me in the right direction?

 

Thanks

1. Install Oculus software.

2. Connect the device and go through config. You also have to go to options > general tab and allow unknown sources.

3. When all set and Oculus app is running go to DCS, options, VR and enable VR headset... what Enduro14 said.

4. After DCS restart it should run in VR mode, you'll see mirror image on monitor and you can play when you put the gogles on.

In addition need to enable third party software in the Oculus software. At least at one time it was necessary, been a while for me since Oculus.

It's options > general tab > unknown sources On.

Then I already have it that way, so I don't know what else.

 

Maybe try if you can open other steam games in VR mode or not, just troubleshooting if this is a more general issue or DCS-specific issue.

No.

 

Oculus software must be running and set up.

Unknown sources in the Oculus software must be set to on.

In DCS settings under the VR tab, "Enable Virtual Reality Headset" must be ticked

After you have done that, you need to restart DCS to make the switch to VR mode.

 

That's all.

 

Tip: Use Skatezilla's updater utility to make an easy switch between 2D and VR (and vice versa).

Personal Wish List: A6 Intruder, Vietnam theater, decent ATC module, better VR performance!
