SteamVR or OpenXR: Which one you are using?

Recommended Posts

I am curious which renderer do you prefer and why? (i.e. OpenXR, SteamVR)

  • Sim: MSFS2020
  • Headset: HP Reverb G2
  • Renderer: SteamVR
  • Why: I get benefit from steamvr overlay functionality. (Like using Ivao Altitude in the cockpit)

using mainly reverb g2 - i get noticeably better fps with msfs using wmr openxr, than i do with steam openxr. I'm having good results with openxr dev tools motion reprojection. Though I wish wmr version had a world scale option

doesn't oculuis have it's own version of openxr for the rift s as part of an update back in late 2020, as it does for the quests 1 and 2?  you might be running it but just not aware of it?
