I've been using VR in MSFS since the VR beta in October. I'm as blown away now as I was then. The immersion you feel in flight is like nothing I've ever experienced outside of real time in an aircraft. ...... but I have to say that it's hard for me to not put my headset on when flying anymore."

exactly what I wanted to say. VR gives us a low cost home cockpit replacement not just for one, but for all aircraft models, and then some! I am sure MSFS is a major boost for VR gaming in general.

I think (control +Tab) brings up the menu.

It's not control tab. It's simply tab.

I've downloaded and installed OpenXR (I think) - but I can't see how to access the app or the settings. I can't find it on my PC (when I search for it).

You need to download Developer Tools for OpenXR from the Store to access those settings: https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/p/openxr-developer-tools-for-windows-mixed-reality/9n5cvvl23qbt?activetab=pivot:overviewtab

Using an Index here through SteamVR, on a 3090, 8700k (4.9Ghz) and 32gb. My impression is that something isn't right. Head movement is incredibly juddery, on the lowest settings, reminding me of old-school rubber banding, although the frame rate itself feels okay. If I up all graphics settings to the max, it feels like there's no different to the frame rate at all.

It's perplexing, frankly. And befuddling 😁

I agree 100%.  I think Index support is seriously broken at the moment.   IMO it is just not usable at this time.

It seems people are having wildly divergent experiences, with some, usually after a few false starts, finally dialing it in until they are satisfied, and others absolutely certain that Asobo has dropped the ball, and the whole thing stinks.

I expect there will be a lot of setup guides appearing.

It works really well for me. No issues whatsoever, except that my humble 1070 can't keep up. Although it could be a matter of optimization. I get acceptable performance in P3D with PMDG birds with that card.

I imagine a set-up guide will be useful for VR virgins. 

I have several years of experience personally and can't shake the feeling something fishy is going on. When performance is identical for me whether on ultra or low, something isn't right somewhere. Not for everyone with an Index, no, but certainly for some.

I don't think the situation "stinks", it is what it is, and I can't necessarily point the finger at Asobo. It'll shake out eventually I imagine.

Can you specify your equipment and your settings.  If it is really "super fluid" there must be some magic that I'm missing as I'm running on an 5 Ghz i9/2080Ti and my performance in all other VR games is superb on this system.

Hahahahahah!!! I was watching your video, and my eyes automatically crossed so that I was watching it in 3D! 😋

Right, I have news! The major culprit in my setup (Valve Index, 3090, i7 8700k, 32gb) was 'motion smoothing' being enabled in SteamVR. With that turned off either globally or on a per application basis the strange smeary propellor was fixed and, more importantly, the majority of jerkiness and rubber banding present in head movement disappeared.

I knew something strange was going on because the stereo image on the monitor was absolutely fine.

Anyway, if you've been having problems with nausea-inducing rubberbanding, give it a go!
