I have to say, similar settings with the 466.11 driver is a keeper, with one exception. HAGS OFF is much better for me. With it ON there is more stuttering and SteamVR crashed on me at KLAX, which part of my standard performance test flight. With HAGS OFF performance was still less than stellar there, but I was able to complete my flight. Everywhere else, nice and smooth.
I really wish we could get to the bottom of the inconsistencies between different people’s experiences with this sim, not to mention the inconsistent experience a single user can have from day to day. As I said above I use KLAX as a test because I know I get a crappy framerate and stutters there even under the best of conditions. But the other day I landed there and it was buttery smooth all the way to the parking spot. For the life of me I have no idea what was different that day. And what really sucks is knowing that it is possible to get that kind of performance, but not knowing how to make it happen on demand.
I just chalk it up to “Microsoft”. I work as a software dev and have always used MS tools. I’m probably the closest thing there is to a MS fanboy, lol. That said, we always half-joke about how MS seems to have perfected the art of writing non-deterministic algorithms. Their collaboration with Asobo certainly hasn’t changed much in that regard.
