A good VR setup guide for P3Dv4.4+

Recommended Posts

Someone knows where to find a good and complete setup guide to configure and use VR (Oculus Rift, preferably) in P3D?.

Thanks in advance, Ed

If there was such a thing I'd buy it! I've not been able to get P3Dv4.5 to perform with any satisfaction..At all! Sadly, I've practically given up on P3D, since I can't go back to pancake view. I could well spring for the new Rift S and if that makes P3D look any better I'll return...

Quite easy...get a headset (best is to wait for the new oculus rift s) and flyinside-fsx (much better then vanilla vr) 

1. Start oculus home

2.start oculus tray tool, set super sampling to 1.5 or higher (you have to test to get the sweet spot between performance and graphic

This will make the resolution sharper in game and everything is easier to read. Someone else on this forum pointed this software out to me last month and unfortunately it "forced" me immediately to upgrade my GC to a RTX2070 😉

3. Start flyinside-fsx to start p3d with it. At initial startup it will  apply some changes to your config and you have to restart the program 

4. Set up your flight in the scenario screen like usual 

5. After loading up you have to set a hotkey which will reset your view and which you will use to open the flyinside menu.

6. Adjust the p3d settings this way that you get at least above 20 ingame fps.

The flyinside overview always  shows you the actual fps like this "30/90"

30 is the ingame fps and 90 the flyinside asynchronous time wrap fps.

Once you set all up one time, starting the sim in VR doesn't take any longer than without.

I´ve heard before about Flyinside-fsx, but have never used it. In case you´re running P3Dv4.4, would you need to buy the FlyInside P3D4 Pro version?, which I think it´s about $28.

By the way, many thanks for your detailed guideline, it will surely help. I´m used to fly in VR with Aerofly FS 2, but have not used VR before with P3D.

Thanks, Ed

Correct that's the one. I think you can actually try the software before you buy with a 10 or 15min time limit.

With this software you can also use the hand controllers, but I never got warm with theses and just use the mouse for switching the switches in VC.

Yes, I read there´s a trial version, with limited capabilities.

I don´t like those hand controllers either, never have used them in Aerofly FS 2, only the mouse.

Thanks for your help.

Cheers, Ed
