Screen goes black with KA-50 using Shkval on Rift S (depending on where I'm looking)


Recommended Posts

The problem is that the screen will sometimes go black. The screen is NOT off as this time, if the chat window is up, I can see that fine as well as communication windows and alerts. If I look in other directions, I can see. If I were to rotate, say, 90 degrees right I'll be able to see again, but if I then look left back at my original azimuth, the screen goes black. All external views work fine as well as map view, briefings etc.


I believe it is specifically related to when the Shkval is active. I have yet to notice this happen when it is caged and I'm just navigating. It doesn't happen immediately after uncaging, but several minutes into a fight, I'll start having the issue. I can alleviate it by caging and flying in a different direction for a minute or two, but I'll maybe get a few seconds of being able to target before it happens again.


This only happens on the KA50 and I haven't been able to recreate it in the Hornet, Tomcat, Jeff, Huey, etc. However, in the Hornet, I have seen the screen flicker black once or twice, usually on startup, before it goes away. This has happened in no other VR game I've played. Not even a flicker.


Please let me know if you need any more information as I love flying my li'l Black Shark and this is extremely annoying. :)


Edit: I get dark flashes with other modules, but they usually go away after a few minutes.
