DCS VR Shaders Mod (now with instructions!)

#61

ummm… your framerate? How the sim looks?


#62

You ever look at something. And then wonder - did it always look like that or am I just thinking it looks different? That’s where I’m at.


#63

I just went ahead and redid the shaders mod - takes all of a couple minutes to do just in case…though it takes a bit longer to rebuild the shaders. Trying to get my install up to speed for the fly-in… :+1:


#64

Look at the desktop mirror.
If there is a circle within which everything looks ok, and outside of that is distortions, the mod is active.
If the full rectangular window looks OK, the mod is not active


#65

Seem a little complex to apply!

I won’t start if i’m not sure it works good with multiplayer!
Any advice?


#66

Just look at the DCS server list and see if your server requires a “pure client” (which is what the game calls integrity check)


#67

I use OVGME to install it and can deactivate it any time I need to such as updating or trying out different settings. It is very simple to do.
Here is the guide for using it

I use OVGME too, but as I have said in the original post of this thread, OVGME cannot track the changes made to your DCS install by the process of shaders compilation.

This means: removing with OVGME does NOT remove all traces of this mod, although it does work for mods that do not change the shaders.
I have tried removing this mod with OVGME only, but then you still cannot join IC servers.

Hence why I said you have to clean your install too, and remove all shaders directories, then do a repair.

Never saw that thanks. :slight_smile:


#70

Does anyone clear out the shader cache after updating graphics drivers? Is there any point.


#71

Yes and yes. Also get the gamma correction shader mods by kegetys while you are at it.


#72

The what now?
What does this mod do?


#73

http://www.kegetys.fi/

the sRGB and VR shader mods stack. Another rather important tweak is this:

Dynamic range often is set to limited. Set it to full on both your outputs for major improvement in image quality!


#74

Didn’t know Kegetys had a website!
Thanks!
I’m using his VR shader mod.

Edit: If I was upper echelon big dude in charge of ED, Kegetys would be on my payroll. They guy clearly know stuff.
