[REPORTED]Medium water setting issues.


Recommended Posts

When flying over water, I get some really messed up visuals in VR (see screenshots)

The issue really shows, while flying over shallow waters, but is also present while flying over deep water (just slightly less distinctive)

 

 

Anyone else seeing this when using the settings as stated below:

Water settings: Medium

Shadows: Low

Terrain shadows: Off

Version: OB 2.5.6

 

I did notice, that when I set water settings to high, everything is looking good (but my framerate drops too much)

Turning off shadows didn't help (so maybe nog shadow related in contradiction to my topic title. Maybe reflection related?).

 

Tested in Caucasus and PG

PG: F-16 instant action free flight

Caucasus: F-16 instant action ramp hot

 

Effect orrurs both in left and right eye, but visibility highly depends on from which angle you look.

 

Already tried the following, without any results:

DCS cleanup + repair

Deleted fxo and metashaders2

Rebooted my pc :P

 

 

(using an HP Reverb)

No one else having this issue? (except for me and Blade)

 

If so, that'd be kinda disturbing. Because in that case, fixing this is probably not on ED's radar, or it's a problem with my DCS installation :(

 

It would be kinda comforting to me, if I knew that more people were having this issue (I need to share my pain :P)

 

 

As said before, this is only happening with water set to medium. When setting water to low or high, everything is working properly.

 

 

I tried again today making sure all mods were deleted, cleanup/repair, delete fxo and metashaders2... but still no change. The effect is so massive, it's unplayable to fly over water (especially shallow waters) :helpsmilie:

I get the same issue with the F-18, PG map, HP Reverb.

 

The effect is also visible in Caucasus, just a little less striking

 

(I didn't test on NTTR, as I don't own that map)

Medium water setting is still bugged in OB 2.5.6.44266

 

 

Don't understand that there are so little complaints about this, but maybe it's because most people are using the water high or water low setting.

Same issue with Rift S and water to medium. I will change the settings temporarily until fix.

There are also some clouds and effects sometimes that only appear on one eye

Guys, please leave the cloud rendering issue for another topic.

 

I know it's also annoying, but distant clouds flicker has always been an issue, at least as long as I play in VR (about 3 years).

 

The water texture issue I described in my OP, is new since OB 2.5.6

IMO you should publish this bug report to the DCS 2.5 > Bug & Problems > Object Error section of the forum.

 

This part of the forum is from my point of view not good to publish bugs related to VR because always submerged by performances issue or other kind of strange behavior, often cause by other things than DCS.

 

Here is a good place to find answer and advices from the communauty but not as strong for serious bug report

Medium water setting is bugged

 

Also posted this on the VR issues sub-forum, but it seems to not be picked up by anyone from ED, so I'll try here as well. Bug is already verified by a few other DCS users in my previous thread.

 

Since OB 2.5.6, when flying over water, I get some really messed up visuals in VR (see these screenshots in my initial thread).

The issue really shows, while flying over shallow waters, but is also present while flying over deeper water (just slightly less distinctive).

 

 

This only happens with water settings: Medium

 

Tested in Caucasus and PG

 

Fastest way to test/reproduce in missions:

PG: F-16 instant action free flight

Caucasus: F-16 instant action ramp hot

 

Effect orrurs both in left and right eye, but visibility of the bugged effect highly depends on from which angle you look.

 

Already tried the following, without any improvement:

DCS cleanup + repair

Deleted fxo, metashaders2 and terrain texture shaders

Rebooted my pc :P

When I get water render errors and I restart DCS the render errors are gone. Perhaps this helps solving this problem.

 

This issue has been acknowledged by ED and already patched.

Now the high water setting is bugged. Restarting doesn't help (at least not on my pc)
