Reverb G2 / SteamVR / Mix Reality

Recommended Posts

Can someone please explain in what order o correctly enter VR in MSFS? I have a Reverb G2 and it seems very difficult to get it all working correctly. Sometime the mix realty just studders along when initializing. Where does Steam VR fit in to all of this? I feel like I am hidering the FPS and smooth operation of MSFS. Any help appeciated.

For what it's worth, I found I had much better frame rates on my G2 when I switched off the G2 headphones in favour of the main PC audio output. You should find this option on the Windows/settings/mixed reality page.

You won't need SteamVR unless you have the Steam version of MSFS. If you do have the Steam version, first you boot Windows Mixed Reality and then SteamVR. They should slip together quite easily.

Just bind a key or button to toggle entering and exiting VR.  I bind that and recenter view to my joystick so I can do it without taking tht headset off.

MSFS Steam version does not use SteamVR (at least not here!)  Start Windows Mixed Reality portal, (optional) OpenXR toolkit for tweaking / performance, then MSFS (either thru Steam or direct from desktop).  SteamVR is absolutely not in the mix.

Got it thanks!... I guess I was making it a lot harder than I needed to.. Seems to be fine now. Having used the Quest way back the Reverb is astonishing clear.

I am on steam but not starting SteamVR at all. Is there an advantage to doing so? When I tried it the FPS went to nothing...

Nope. I have the G2 and my workflow is: 

  • Start WMR
  • Start MSFS
  • Load flight
  • CTRL-TAB to start VR
  • Fly in amazement! 

No need to use Steam VR at all
