For me, coming from an Odyssey+, everything was better. However, the build quality of the G2 is average; cheapest hardware they can put in it, perhaps minus the lenses?. That has been my experience with HP hardware for the last 25 years. Was hoping the VR headset might be better.
I got the G2 more than one year ago with the v1 power cable. I had issues time to time (connecting errors, intermittent audio…) though restarting and some fiddling usually got it straight.
One day (few weeks back) I decided enough was enough and got in touch with the retailer I bought it from (Bestware.com - located in Germany) to ask for a replacement cable. The thing was I was already out of the HP warranty period which lasted for one year. I thought in the EU we got a warranty for two years so I was a bit surprised.
Anyway, I asked nicely the customer service in Bestware whether they could get in touch with HP and deal with my request and…
…they actually did. They said that HP would provide the cable nonetheless, only it would take some time (in terms of weeks).
well I noticed the new WMR Interface works better then the old one did I had installed my G2 and had no issues like before, I even have v1 of the cable.
I also would like to say in DCS I can only muster the lowest setting on the G2 for resolution. I had gotten to 30% but then I ran the instant action in Syria and needed to lower the setting for a better overall usage…
I think the res is like 1440x1400 or close to it. what you guys run at. I am on a 1070GTX FTW… would love to find a 2080ti well if I had the money that is…
Oof that’s rough. Are you using the vrperfkit to squeeze some more pixels out of it? You can get about 25% more pixels for the aame performance using this:
I would suggest going into the yml file and using NIS scaler, setting renderScale to 0.67, then setting DCS to 1.5x more pixels in SteamVR.
If you also prefer instruments clarity over smooth terrain outside, up sharpness to 0.8 in the yml.
Then copy both yml and dll file into DCS’ bin folder.
SteamVR instability has cropped up again. I’ll be flying a mission and it will freeze, often with the sound looping. I take off my G2 and see that there is a message on the SteamVR icon that it has stopped, offering an option to restart it. Anyone else having this or know the best way to troubleshoot?
I should be flying DCS Online tonight I will see if I get any freezes or CTD’s and such. I was playing earlier and was running into RAM issues. I have 32gb but the game was using upto 31.9gb which made the game a slideshow…
That was a mission in Syria instant action but I think they are still having issues with the memory not being cleared between missions.
I did try and find the same memory I currently have but no luck and 64gb of RAM cost about 250usd way more then I can spend currently on wants…
Barely. I did increase my RX6800XT’s min clock speed to just a little below maximum (stock) clock speed, as well as increasing the fan curve and power limit. This should theoretically make gameplay smoother, though I have not measured it.
I also did an overclock on my Ryzen 5 5600X, but the increased clock speed made very little difference. What did make a big difference, and I highly recommend if you have a good cooler (not the stock AMD cooler), is to set the PBO power limits to “Motherboard”.
If you have Intel, depending on which generation it is, you may also want to up the power limits.
You do not need 64GB of RAM to play DCS.
8GB is not enough for complex missions, 16GB is good for most cases, and 32GB is safely enough for now. With your current hardware, I would first upgrade GPU if anything. Unless your CPU is very old maybe
That’s a negative. I’ve tried updating drivers, SVR, beta, non beta WMR for Steam, and using default settings all the way around, but still getting a stoppage in SteamVR in DCS about a third of the time. Usually restarting SVR and DCS solves it, but really aggravating when doing cold and dark, plus setting up radios, navigation, etc.
Yeah, good call PB. I had looked in the System log, but forgot the Application log. I rebooted my system, started DCS via Skate’s Updater, jumped in the UH-60L in the PG quick start mission Cold and Dark. Began working through the startup checklist and when I move engine 2 PCL to idle, SteamVR and DCS crashed. Found this. Looks like the vrcompositor.exe is the culprit. Not sure exactly what action to take, but at least I know what is faulting. Doing some web searches now.
