Oculus Rift S With DCS World Discussion


Wags

Recommended Posts

Yes definitely, plus it also sometimes seems to "partially" lose tracking while in game; I can look around and up and down but cannot move my head/body forward/back or left/right. When this happens and I go to Oculus home I find the touch controllers are effectively glued to the surface. I don't think it is hardware, as I have had it on previous firmware versions, which have then been fixed but introduced others, like not detecting my displayport connection unless I remove and replace it etc. I hope they stabilise this soon, as for my setup at least it's not dependable for long periods of playtime.

Sooo....many here have reported no performance loss when upgrading to a Rift S from the CV1 . Thing is they were all running 2080ti's , so i was concerned about GPU headroom masking higher performance requirements .

 

I received my S today , and am happy to report that even with a 1070 , the S performs every bit as well as my CV1 -maybe better !

 

One odd thing about the setup i should mention is that when plugging into the usb connection on my Innatek card ( with the CV1 & sensors still plugged in) setup would not recognise the S . When i plugged it into a motherboard usb , it was recognised right away .

 

Quite a scare , but now....me so happy :)

Jumping on this Rift s bandwagon. I really don't think I've made a better purchase in ages. It's really changing everything for me. Between DCS and Xplane it's been amazing.

 

Sure I feel like I have a world of settings to tweak, and have been spending hours toggling between PD values etc, but overall its still incredible to me how much better it is than flying flat panel.

Is it indeed quite awesome! Good choice with the Rift S , solid device.

i frankly cannot wait. I just bought a Rift S at lunch. Last night while flying in instrument conditions down to minimums I had had it with trying to zoom in to seeing my baro setting. Using NOiD's Warthog Hotas joystick profile I didn't have a way to zoom in with VR. I'm now done and glad I bit the bullet. Now I will have to see how my existing system behaves, AMD Ryzen 5 1900 32GB of RAM and a 1080ti card...

 

Thanks for the reviews and Matt's glowing review (unabashed) as that sealed my fate at the checkout line.

Total noob question from me since I just picked up a rift s as my first VR headset. Which version of DCS should I be launching? I own the steam version of DCS, so do I:

 

1. Launch Oculus Home and launch the plain DCS World?

2. Launch Steam VR and select DCS world for Steam VR?

3. Launch Steam VR and select the second VR option (Steam VR for 2.5 DCS World is what I believe it is called?)

 

A bit confusing to me since owning the Steam version causes so many layers of software to be running.

Launch oculus home

Launch steam

Launch Dcs. A pop up menu will prompt you to choose. Click on the oculus VR version.

 

Stay away from steam VR

Just got my Rift S yesterday and managed to test a bit in DCS before it got too late.

 

I'm sure it has been discussed before, but is there any real benefit to use both PD increase and MSAA? I had my PD at 1.7-2.0 and switched between no MSAA and 2x and 4x, but I couldn't really tell any big difference. Granted, this was only a very quick test before bed time (will test more tonight) but what is your experience?

Btw, do you run with ASW auto or off? I have a 2080 Ti but suspect that I can't max out everything and expect to hold 80 fps. Is it best to lower the settings until I can hold 80 fps minimum, or run higher settings and accept som ASW activation?

I used to run ASW set to Auto but i changed that to 45 FPS fix (40 actual on the Rift-S) because when on Auto the moment it switches between 40 to 80 and back it stutters slightly. I prefer no stutter over 80 FPS.

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

Using Voice Attack, I have bind vocal commands to change mode during the flight:

 

VR Mode 1:RCTRL + Num Pad 1 (80 Hz AWS off)

VR Mode 2:RCTRL + Num Pad 2 (45 Hz AWS off) (useless but...)

VR Mode 3:RCTRL + Num Pad 3 (45 Hz AWS forced ON)

VR Mode 4:RCTRL + Num Pad 4 (Auto)

 

I tend to play in mode 1 but switch to mode 4 when it will be clear that AWS could be required.

And mode 3 if it is even more clear that more than 40Hz is impossible and want to avoid potential switch between 40/80Hz and the stutter. Seems complicated but it becomes quickly a reflex.

 

Note that I set the commands to answer OK as a feedback to be sure. Same for enabling/disabling the labels on MP servers for better identification.

 

No need to have a Voice Attack Licence for that. The free version can do the job

Seems I have big problems. F-16C quick start mission "Takeoff" gives me about 30 fps, sometimes dipping to 25. That's with PD 1.0 and using "High" graphics preset.

 

My system: 4790K CPU and RTX 2080 Ti.

 

 

What the hell could be wrong?

Disable all shadows, it should be better.

 

If it solves your issue and you feel bad about the workaround, me too...

In the wish list forum, I suggested to have dedicated settings for cockpit shadows and vehicules shadows.

 

Here if you wish add a +1:

Um I wouldn't use "high" graphics. I'd turn shadows down etc. I'd start with Low and work your way up. Otherwise, my best guess is the CPU thats 5 generations out of date. Yes I'm sure its fine GHZ wise, but its not all about the cycles. Things like cache, archictecture, pipes etc all make large impacts on real world performance. Plus I'm sure the intel security fixes aren't doing you any favors in terms of performance.

Try turning off the datalink and see if that helps. I’m not on VR but datalink on the f16 kills my FPS by 10-20

Thanks for your replies. I have tested some more. I clicked the "Low" graphics preset and set kept PD at 1.0. Everything looks like crap and in the Hornet over Batumi the FPS is fluctuating between 40-70 fps. That can't possibly be right?

 

 

Should I delete the shaders and FXO cache (or what it's called)? I've read something about that before.

If your talking about instant action "Take OFF" my system running with the above setting and PD 1.4

 

I have a constant 40 fps with spec below.

 

1080ti : 4790k clocked @ 4.6 even at low level flight.

Seems my performance is about the same as this guys (and he's got a better CPU than I do).

Yes, those settings work well for me too. I tried to untick MSAA and set shadows to low. Instead running PD on 1.6. Seems to work well too. Strangely enough the F-16 "Take off" quick start works alot better today. No idea why, since it barely worked on low settings yesterday.
