I have been using the Reverb G2 for about 2 weeks now and after getting the settings right (with the help of several posts here in the forums) I got everything running quite smooth.
For no apparent reason, since yesterday MFS starting acting completely crazy when switching to VR, but only when in a loaded flight (in the main menu VR works perfectly fine). As soon as either a flight loads when already in VR mode or I switch to VR mode during a flight, my VR view goes black and then switches back to the WMR room, while my monitor view starts flickering like crazy (while still showing the VR view). A few seconds later MFS crashes to the desktop, unless I exit VR mode.
This started happening after 2 weeks of working perfectly. I made no changes.
After trying everything changing settings, both MFS, Steam, and Windows, I decided to reinstall MFS and Steam. No change
I then reinstalled my graphics drivers, tried a different driver, tried rolling back Windows Updates. No Change
I then reset my entire PC and reinstalled Windows. I did a clean install of Steam and MFS without any other programs or mods running on my newly installed system. On the first try I was able to jump into VR in a loaded flight, look around for a few seconds, and the MFS crashed to desktop. Afterwards, the issue was just as before.
I could not find anything on the web about anyone experiencing similar behavior and have no idea what the cause of the problem might be. As the VR mode works fine in WMR and even in the MFS menu, I have no clue what could be causing such behavior only when in a loaded flight. As a full system reset / reinstall did not work, my only guess is that it is some kind of hardware issue - maybe a power problem. But VR works perfectly fine when not in a loaded flight, so this doesn’t make any sense either.
Also, when not using VR, MFS acts perfectly normal.
If anyone is experiencing a similar issue I would be grateful for some help, otherwise my next move would be to get the Reverb G2 HMD replaced.
GTX 3080 FE
32 GB RAM (2x 16GB DDR4-3600)
Win10 with MFS Steam Version (using WMR directly - not SteamVR) (I have tried with SteamVR with same results)
Corsair SF750 80 PLUS Platinum PSU
Appreciate any help with this!
I will try to upload a video of the issue shortly.
