Shaders mod for better VR performance (experimental)


Recommended Posts

Best way is to test this yourself,nit takes almost the. Same amount of time as posting it here... Last I checked, the Base version of kegetys mod is compatible with the current releases, taz's tree fix corrects a minor graphics issue, bu! It still works without.

I was slightly frustrated with poor performance when playing in VR with the new deferred rendering engine, so I had a look what would be possible to remove/simplify from the shaders to improve the fra

Google seems like upped the security stuff after they've been hacked recently. This site being .ru, they probably put it on harmful list.

Download works fine with other browsers. And also works if you right click and open in new tab from Chrome.

And that’s the problem, you need to get everyone in lockstep, and make sure they don’t conflict...

any chance this can be rolled into your mod (it needs updated to latest version though...) https://forums.eagle.ru/forum/english/dcs-world-topics/mods-and-apps/dcs-mods/284187-2-5-6-xxxxx-adjusted-shaders?t=281666

i just tested this against my variant and it works, so knock yourself out; but it might change, it wont pass IC, and i dont think it will work with Kegety's base mod, as it overwrites some of the same files

Hi, few weeks I don't fly in DCS. Are the last 2.5.6.50321 still good for current OB update, like I see in this thread 1st page?

 

As always, thank you very much.

While I'm here, massive thanks to Kegetys and speed-of-heat for this mod, really helps me maintain a solid 45FPS with MP and the IC pass is a real bonus.

I'm experiencing minor issue with it in A10C-II cockpit.  The left panel texture that was updated with the patch gets some strange artifacting with this mod.  It is more apparent if I use the clean cockpit rather than aged.

 

I tried to troubleshoot the source but not enough time.  Plus it seemed minor issue if I use the aged cockpit.

Yup. Makes it actually usable in VR. Til the new clouds come out, maybe.

Hello Guys

Haven't been here for a while. Can you tell where I can find the newest version of this mod with IC pass?  Is still upgrade in framerates so high?

 

At least anyone can tell me what files I should delete to pass IC?

Yeah but it should help in keeping the 45 (or 40 depending on the headset) for ASW

Two reasons for this type of error, you are using the wrong version of the mod, or you have an additional mod that is causing a compatibility issue...

yes.  if in doubt try it it takes very little time to test... and if it didn't you would have seen the wall of people asking for it to be updated...

I'm having the same issue in the "old" A-10C cockpit and as it doesn't have the aged cockpit option it is rather noticable. Tried to disable all optimizations and improvements of the shader mod in the "_HMD.hlsl" settings file but same result. Also tried playing around with the shadow settings inside DCS and same result. @Taz1004 were you able to solve this for the A-10C-II cockpit?
