I think i'm missing something. Here's my system:
CPU: Ryzen 7 3800X @4300Mhz
GPU: RTX 2080 Ti
RAM: 32GB HyperX Predator @3333Mhz CL16
Not a monster, but not trash, i think (?)
When i read some posts in forums or watch youtube videos about MSFS2020 in VR, i read/hear the word "SMOOTH"... And this just makes me laugh.
I wanted to follow some guide (i don't want to name names) on some very famous youtuber channel about MSFS in VR.
I set up the OpenXR registry "hack" to make use of Oculus api JSON.
I setup OpenXR @70% rendering as suggested. Everything else is default. (and anyways any setting here seems to make no difference).
In Oculus app, supersampling is 1, default.
I set some common nvidia settings via Inspector:
Maximum prerendered frames = 1
VR prerendered frames = 1
Threaded Optimization = On
Power management = Maximum performance
Aniso Sample Optimization = On
Negative LOD Bias = Allow
Texture filtering quality = High performance
Trilinear Optimization = On
Vertical Sync = Fast Sync
I set ingame settings to be able to reach at least 30-35 fps in VR.
With Oculus Tray Tool i set the "mirror" FOV to 0.70, to theorically gain performance.
AWS 30Hz (to stick with the FPS i can obtain).
VR Server running at hign priority.
MSFS running at high priority.
Disable fullscreen optimizations for the game .exe
Run it as Admin.
Win game mode off, Win HAGS off.
..............And so on and so on and so on......... All the common things a normal gamer should know.
And, well, it is everything but "smooth".
I wonder how that guy with an I5 8600K, a 1080TI and 16 RAM can say "it runs SMOOTH as silk"... That PC performances less than half mine.
Now it comes your help, AVSIM friends: depending on ingame settings, i get a Performance Headroom of -120, yes MINUS 120... to 4/5. so how it could be even close to "smooth"?!
How one can say a game runs smooth with so little PH percentage?!
Every game with that PH makes you puke after 5 minutes 'couse of stuttering and juddering and wobbling.
I play Alyx and Medal of Honor @ full details, and they are SMOOTH FOR REAL.
Please, tell me what is your Performance Headroom, maybe it is just me missing something.
