DCS and Pimax


Wags

Recommended Posts

I might just uninstall Steam VR to ensure its gone.

 

Let me know what happens when un uninstall steam =) would be very nice if that's possible so we don't have to use parallel projection to gain a few fps

Don't bother trying, DCS won't launch in VR that way.

Yes it wont launch without SteamVR being installed and goes to flat screen monitor unless you import the dcs.exe to pitool but then I get other handling errors when launching thru pitools unless I disable all of my modules with serial numbers.

Same here, SweViver says they went away after a while, but they're damned annoying when every module presents this error;

It takes me 5 minutes to launch DCS this way and when I do the GUI is so small, only shows the DCS logo...

Yes that's what I get. They go away because it cycles thru the modules with keys one at at time after you hit the ok button and it takes a while depending on how many modules with keys you have installed. If you go to saved game log folder, in the log.txt file, you will see a failure on the modules with serial numbers for security keys. Go to the Installed tab in DCS UI and disable them and the start up error goes away. Unfortunately only non key modules will work.

I made a complete Pitool setup along with Steam VR when I first received my Pimax 5K+, to play I start Pitool, launch DCS from the Icon and steam VR starts in background. Every thing starts and flies well, no problems at all.

There's never been an issue for most of us getting it to fly well. All we're trying to do with removing SteamVR and etc from the equation is to get more FPS.

I'm starting DCS from desktop, as usual. Pitool running, no steamvr. In flight, each time I click default on evga precisionx and I see the fps increase immediately. But then it goes right back to the normal fps again. It won't hold for some reason.

If I click default more than 7 or 8 times it lowers my fps to 10 and I have to restart everything to get it going properly again.

Here's hoping nvidia get wind of this and fix it in their drivers.

I got i working today, i first went in to dcs and unchecked all my modules except F18. Then started it through pitools, didn't get any fatal error messages and it started within 10 seconds. Did the trick with PrecisionX, it worked but i got some kind of weird ghosting effect on my right Eye. It was not very enjoyable, but i got 20-30 frames more and my gpu went up to 99%.

Pimax must up their game:

 

 

 

 

Bring on the full 8K version(and hardware to support it..)!

 

 

 

 

 

Remember that the Reverb does not sport as wide a FOV as Pimax. It's strength is concentrated in 1st gen FOV and very high resolution.

I know, thats why we need a version with the Reverb resolution and a 150-170 FOV..

You will be waiting some time for the tech to catch up with that expectation in a consumer level product.

I would say 18 months. Typically, first to second gen is slower than 2nd to 3rd. I'm hoping!

It was called the Pimax 8KX, and was a part of the Kickstarter. But Pimax has gone very quiet about this version..

More of a long term goal, they are just not there yet with the technology to bring such a product to the consumer market.

DCS and Pimax

 

New official Pitool Version 1.0.0.132 available for download.

 

It notes:

Issue Fixed:

 

Fix the occasional ghosting problem caused by the high GPU occupancy

 

https://pimaxvr.com/pages/pitool

 

...sounds good, looking forward to check with DCS in the evening.

 

 

 

Has been out for a while now in Beta. Using it for probably a month or so with no issues.

Yes, but it seems they added that ghosting fix.

 

 

 

Ah, I see! Guess I will check this out next time I’m on the PC then. Thank you.
