Virtual Reality not on drop down P3Dv4.3

Recommended Posts

Hello folks,

I just built a new computer, had to install everything..   Now there is no drop-down for VR.  Never had this problem running V4.2.   I am missing something, probably very simple. I have searched P3D, just thought someone here might be able to help. 

Thanks in advance,

Jerry Friz

I am not sure if this is PMDG-Related, but what HMD do you have? Is the appropriate VR software installed (Steam/Oculus)?

No, it is not PMDG only, but, more savvy people here. I am using the Rift. The rift is installed, and works good, not with P3D v4.3, maybe I should go back to .P3D4.2.

I am using P3D 4.3 and it is working fine. There are multiple topics in the official P3D forum regarding this problem and it seems usually to be associated with faulty/non-present VR software, for instance:

I had a similar problem. Oculus Rift was working fine in all VR apps (incl. X-Plane 11), but no „Virtual Reality“ item in the P3D menu. Reinstalling the Nvidia driver did the trick. I tried all kinds of solutions but only a reinstall of the driver helped.

Hi again,

That did it, I had  over looked installing the Nvidea driver. Works like it should.  On a long haul from Cologne, to Louisville, in the -8, for UPS.

Many thanks to all....!
