There is a little pause button in the bottom middle of the WMR screen press it and it will not display the WMR mirror, you will need to hover over it for it to show ...   

You mean outside of WMR?  If so, because you can get 6 DOF issues (and occasional mouse control issues) if not synced with WMR first.  Yes, it will work 90% of the time, and it all depends on your roo

I was getting similar issues with icons disappearing. This registry entry fixed it for me.   Use a wmr headset? Give this a try - Virtual Reality - ED Forums (eagle.ru)

Hello,

 

 

how does DCS work with WMR, is it native or does it work via the steam interface? Does the steam version of DCS have to be used?

Hello,

Well you would need Steam installed to get Steam VR installed, however once Steam VR is installed then no you do not need to even run Steam. Just Steam VR.

If it works like it does with a Rift when running a Steam VR game, it should launch Steam VR automatically when launching the game.

 

No, would not need to run Steam versions of DCS.

You still have to start WMR portal first. But that should be enough. (It doesn't work when using dP-VGA adapter)

Do you also change the Sim between VR and no-VR mode by enabling/disabling the WMR in Windows 10 device manager?

2 things interesting for WMR users:

 

 

1. to disable "confine cursor to game window" you must got to settings, VR and click "cancel" to disable it (must do on every game restart, still bit buggy).

 

 

2. WMR working great in DCS with OVRdrop! (So if you have a 5-10 min flight until you reach the AO you can watch a YouTube video inside of your cockpit until then! ;) Use autopilot! Like here (Ka-50):

 

You can move the window anywhere, resize, even rotate ;)

I keep getting loading screens sometimes when I'm flying around (suddenly SteamVR loading screen for several seconds). Anyone else has this issue? I do have DCS on SSD, but Windows 10 still on old and slow HDD... But this shouldn't even affect DCS then, right?

NineLine do you have Windows 10 also on an HDD ? could be related.. (Microsoft's WMR process are heavy I/O sometimes for many seconds during WMR gaming) Do other VR users not experience this issue (Rift, Vive, ...) ?

No my OS is on an SSD, although I see it more in the version of DCS (I have one version on HDD and rest on SSD) I have on an HDD, its best practice to have both the OS and DCS on an SSD if you have the space I think.

I get that occasionally too, not sure what causes that, I wonder if native support of WMR would improve that, but not sure. When Hornet madness calms down I will kick around about it on the DCS side.

 

 

This might be relevant: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=207925 I've also got a WMR headset (the Odyssey), looks like the stutters are caused by damage models loading. It only started when the 2.5.1 patch released.

I was having the same issue. Determined that my ram was reaching 100 usage as per the Windows performance monitor. I added another 16Gb and the issue went away. I also found that running the monitor in full screen lessened jitters and increased FPS. There seems to be some variance with running full screen but it seems to vary with the different HMDs ie Rift, Vive, WMR.

running windows performance monitor while playing DCS will increase my fps/reduce amount of loading screens? :D

  • 3 weeks later...

I've been wrestling with issues with my WMR device with DCS the past couple weeks. It would intermittently return to the SteamVR loading screen while in flight. It would happen often if a model had to be damaged, but it would also happen randomly. If I removed my headset, I would notice that the flat DCS window was completely locked up during this time. I tried all kinds of things to solve this -- messed around with the graphics settings, tried the Process Lasso trick, and even did a clean reinstall of Windows. Nothing helped.

 

On a whim, I opted into the beta branch of "Windows Mixed Reality for SteamVR" on Steam and then manually enabled automatic motion reprojection in one of the config files. It solved the problem completely.

 

The guide I followed is here:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/mixed-reality/enthusiast-guide/using-steamvr-with-windows-mixed-reality#enabling-motion-reprojection-for-steamvr-apps

 

 

And just to make it easy for folks that might try this themselves, here's the current configuration:

Windows 10, fully updated

SteamVR (beta)

Windows Mixed Reality for SteamVR (beta)

Nvidia driver 397.93

 

Windows on SSD 1

SteamVR and WMR installed on SSD 1

DCS on SSD 2

Windows page file on SSD 3

 

i7 6700K (stock speeds)

GTX 1080 (reference card)

16GB DDR4 3000Mhz RAM

 

Sorry for the information dump, but I figured it can't hurt. :thumbup:

Wow and only supported by Nvidia cards it seems.
