I am new to this MSFS2020 and this forum with the following specification:
Motherboard: Asrock X299E-ITX/AC
Memory: 32GB + 12GB
GPU: MSI Radeon RX 580 ARMOR 8G OC
I obtained my MSFS2020 copy not from Steam but from Xbox yearly subscription. I recently bought the Reverb G2 and installed Steam, Steam VR and Windows Mixed Realty on my computer for the Reverb B yesterday.
No doubt that my video card is not good enough for Reverb G2 and the resolution was not good with blur but I wouldn’t blame because it was RX580 8GB GPU.
The playing of Reverb G2 was playable but I encounter the following issues after I rebooted my computer:
I run MSFS2020 and load to main screen, then I switch to VR by pressing “Ctrl” and “Tab” keys, then the screen switches to VR mode and Windows Mixed Realty will run automatically. However, I could not load / save file during in VR mode. The save / load window pops up but it stays in the background, I could not switch (alt + tab) to save save/load windows.
So, I load saved game without in VR mode. Then, I click “Ready to Fly”. At this moment, I switch to VR but the MSFS2020 screen keeps flashing on and off and the screen of Windows Mixed Realty would keep flashing and glowing sound. I could not do anything and MSFS2020 would shut down automatically after 15 sec later. Then, Windows Mixed Realty screen ould return to main lobby.
I am planning to upgrade my video card to 1080ti. I know it is still not good enough for MSFS2020 + Reverb G2, however, it would better than my existing RX580 8GB tho. I wanted to upgrade to 3070 or 3080 but it is not easy to buy one of those at reasonable price nowadays. I am really frustrate after buying the Reverb G2 with the above issue.
Anyone would suggest me how to fix the issues? Or I should not bother to fix the issues until I upgrade my video card?
