Prepar3d V4.1 and VR

Recommended Posts

I would say that vr is more stable in the new version, in that there is much less shuddering blackness if you turn your head rapidly side to side, but you can still tell that fps is low enough that the sim is struggling to supply enough FPS, and that asynchronous timewarp is doing its utmost to try and save the situation.

I do like the new dropdown, and very much appreciate the reset view option being so readily available now.

Well seems my update has not worked I have no new drop down menu on my bar... just the same as before when I right click on the view...

You need to do a full uninstall of v4 and install 4.1 just to be safe.

Would you say that Flyinside and P3D V3.0 stereo mode is still the much more playable option????

Something isn't right. I've downloaded a fresh p3d4.1 with never having 4.0 installed and on a fresh windows 10 install and no drop down for vr. Im wondering if the oculus update i got yesterday has anything to do with it?

For one, native vr simply isn't fast enough. If you've ever played a sim that is fast enough, the lag of P3D smacks you in the face like a cold, dead fish. Flyinside is a must.

Secondly, Unless you feel like messing with the Oculus tool to get some supersampling going on, native vr is simply too blurry, and there is no way you are going to read the instruments comfortably unless you lean forwards until you are pretty much rubbing noses with the dashboard.

Did I mention Flyinside is a must?

Third, native vr has artifacts. Little glittery points..... Powerlines sparkle...... stuff happens. This does not happen (as much) with Flyinside.

Same here but was running v4.0 before and it worked, now after updating no vr.... no drop down menu... dissapointing. Back to Aerofly FS2 nothing like it yet for VR...

Doubtless there are tons of reasons I know nothing about why LM doesn't just buy a license for Flyinside and integrate it natively.....

But it's a nice fantasy to think about.......

Just hopped in 4.1 quick flight without touching any settings and loaded up Virtual Cockpit I noticed a hella improvement in stereo mode as far as FPS.

It is now playable for me!

Not sure what settings your are running @HiFlyer

But I am indeed getting better FPS with 4.1
