VR Shaders mod for better VR experience


Recommended Posts

Would there be any benefit to having a HMD mask mod only and keep all of the regular shaders? The latest version of the mod doesnt seem to give the same boost and now it looks noticeably worse than the unmodded version.

 

I appreciate the work you have done with this mod and look forward to future improvements. Really should be a part of the base game with VR mode is enabled.

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

I added an update to the first post for DCS 2.7.0.4625. Everything else is the same, except the HMD mask feature is removed since DCS now has a correctly implemented mask. I didn't do much testing wit

That's a little harsh of a comment, and frankly untrue. Perhaps a little more detail re the issue and a minor adjustment to your tone and I'm sure there are many here that would offer their help 😉

Just installed the the latest shaders, and its getting stuck when trying to load into a map

 

Did you wait long enough? It can take some time to load the shaders for the first time... Depending on your system I would wait at least 15 Minutes.

I did not stop time, but on my side I waited about 5 Minutes to get to main menu, and about 7 to get to flight in the A10

Error while compiling newest verson for 2.5.6.43503

 

I keep getting this message while starting the game after having enabled the newest mod for 2.5.6.43503. Tried both Persian Gulf and Caucasus (see attachment):

 

 

Shader 'bazar/shaders/water.fx' failed to compile.

Reason:

warning X4717: Effects deprecated for D3DCompiler_47

L:\DCS World OpBeta\bazar\shaders\enlight\water.fx(329,9-110): error X3013: 'BuildGBufferWater':

no matching 8 parameter function

 

 

 

'Retry' only makes the error window reappear, 'Abort' shuts down DCS.

 

 

Any workaround or am I maybe doing something wrong?

Don't forget to rename the shader folders for every map in the install directory to dcs.old or something else, as mentioned in the readme.

This is exactly what i was going to ask ! The HMD Mask works great for me and i dont notice it but i feel the atmospheric feeling has suffered alot . Things that made the look more immersive like the capopy shading , scratches etc are gone and at night it all looks bad ...

This new shader pack has helped my machine immensely. However, now if I try opening a Persian Gulf .miz in Mission Editor, DCS gets stuck in the loading screen. Straight up flying a PG mission, no problem, looks amazing, runs at 45 fps on my nVidia Quadro P4000 (whereas before it would chug down to the 20s when flying low and fast through Dubai).

 

 

Anyone else with this dilemma?

No idea, I used ovgme, but that’s just a delivery engine, it’s the same mod, green shield. What files is the red shield telling you is broken, ?

A HMD mask only mod would be fantastic.

apologies you are correct, just retested this morning, and i get the same message.

 

what you can do; and ihave no idea what the perf impact would be, is delete those files BEFORE you apply the MOD

I just spent time testing this mod and found that this mod is great, can give us better performance than original one, but there are still some shutter. The performance in SP is OK, but not in MP.

Too many shutter in MP, especially when many planes are crowded in the same place.

I think ED must take responsibility to fix these issue for VR, not us. We have done our duty to tell them where the problem is.

Hi, I did everything as mentioned in the readme and it worked BUT I was not able to see the brief screen at the beginning of the instant action missions, nor any other mission or multiplayer. I deleted DCS and the saved games folder, re-downloaded and re installed DCS but I have the same issue. What can I do to get the brief menu back? I cannot play anymore as I cannot click the "fly" button anymore and that sucks a lot... thanks in advance.

 

Edit: well I actually found a workaround: I press escape 2 times and it acts as if I clicked on the fly button and I can play, but I still don't have the brief screen...

I think this is a 2.5.6. bug. I had this issue even without the shaders mod.

I have a question:

 

 

Does the MSAA optimization mentioned here

 

work with NVIDIA control panel forced MSAA (and ingame disabled)?

 

There is no MSAA in NCP!
