I’m very new to the Oculus Rift S and would really appreciate some kind soul posting a simple list of steps to enable VR with my Oculus Rift S. I’ve read through dozens of posts and most people seem to be way ahead of me and are only solving resolution or stuttering issues. I’ve also searched YouTube videos. I frankly just want to fly and not diddle with the computer instead of flying.
MSFS Ultimate downloaded from Microsoft Store. Oculus software loaded on my computer but not configured yet.
I am a very experienced professional pilot with CFI, CFII, and MEI plus a couple of business jet type ratings. I will be pleased to repay the kindness by perhaps answering questions from others on real world flying challenges.
System specs if it matters:
Windows 10 Professional (x64) Version 2009 (build 19042.685)
3.60 gigahertz Intel Core i7-9700K
64 GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080ti
The universal oculus steps are following the Known Issues (launching the sim - no updates) section here and the performance guide here. Then, you should test with both Nvidia Game Ready latest drivers and the 456.xx version (latest has a big performance increase but has stuttering for some people). Important, go to Nvidia Control Panel and try to match the settings here, while reading the first two posts here, which is a pretty complex guide made the most active and perhaps knowledgeable person of this forum, which I wish I could say is me but I’m like in 30th place in the VR Nerd in VR MSFS forum list
Unfortunately there’s no universal guide, but I have gotten playable results on a 1060 following all of these as best as I can
Is it perfect…?..No, and I doubt it will be without much more Asobo optimisation. Is it fun…? Hell yes!! With these settings, I’m pretty much smooth and stutter free with GA steam gague aircraft in non-intensive environments… but that’s all I fly right now, as the airliners need a lot of work. It may struggle in densely built up areas, though, or with custom scenery ripped straight from Google Earth without being optimised, but we can’t have everything… I’m looking forward to being able to get my hands on a 3080 and crank some settings up! In the meantime, if you struggle with these settings (but you shouldn’t with your specs), you can have a look at the post below, and dial back in game on some of the biggest fps killers.
