After 3 weeks of Christmas holiday break I finally got around to going VR in DCS. I had already bought an HTC Vive system about 6 months ago but was a bit nervous getting into VR too soon. My first real go was using the BF-109K and I decided to use the Landing Training mission to begin with. Super impressed with the graphics but I think the frame rate was a bit poor despite owning a high end system that handles anything I throw at it.
So I followed a very helpful YouTube video that entailed downloading and installing new shaders and tweaking various parameters. Second flight was much better and I found I could now land the Messerschmitt in VR.
I do have a TM Warthog Throttle and Stick which helps with some of the switches but I was hoping to use the mouse to click some switches in the cockpit. Problem is I find it damned hard to spot the cursor (a round white dot) despite waggling the mouse all over the place. It would be so cool if I could click a key to centre the mouse in the screen so I would at least know where to start looking. How do you regular VR fliers get on with this issue?
