Ok, I thought DCS 2.7 VR deserves its own thread so information doesn’t get lost in the general 2.7 discussion.
As far as the popular shader mods go:
Kegetys Shader Mod: Not IC (Integrity Check) compliant for any server that has IC turned on.
Speed of Heat Shader mod (variant of Kegetys) . Passes IC “most of the time”. There might be that one off and you’ll have to shut down DCS and restart.
If you don’t fly VR online, then don’t worry about IC issues.
After applying the shader mod for 2.7 and before firing up DCS, clear out the fxo and metashaders folders. Then fire up DCS.
The initial load of DCS to the main menu, and into every map you own, will be very long. I have an M.2 SSD and 64GB RAM and it took my system 5-10 minutes depending on the map… as in you can walk away and come back. Once all maps have compiled new shaders, it loads up much quicker/normally on subsequent loads.
As of this post, both shader mods provided a massive boost in fps on my stystem:
2080 Ti, i9 9900KS, M.2 SSD, 64GB RAM, Reverb G2.
I ended up turning up some eye candy as well.
Please post any other tweaks, settings, videos etc that you find helpful for everyone in DCS VR.
