Crap short one USB3, need to grab a hub.


That's what I had to do.

I landed up picking this one up through Amazon:

I'm going to have to pick this up to do some wire cleanup on my PC.  I'm looking at buying a few new peripherals and I want to have access to the USBs to swap between games.

Kameraden,

 

My lizard brain needs some help, simple stuff I think related to my small space in my office. Thing is I intend to use this in a chair sitting down. So if one of the experts has a few minutes, I'll start with ED vr first.

 

S!

I'll probably be around tonight, if you're available.  Probably sometime after 9:30PM EDT.

 

I can sit on TS with you while you run the Oculus setup.  And we can try and get you squared away.

I use a small space in the corner of my dining room and only sit down in VR.  It's completely doable.

Kameraden,

 

Here is what I have done to correct the issues I ran into:

 

Nice powered TPLink USB 3.0 hub, build quality in this is exceptional, have a USB 3.0 2TB drive attached for streaming recordings and a NAS 440 for overall network storage.

Purchased a small shelf, cut it in half  at 24" and added it to the 36" one I have in place. Overlap to the bracket giving me a 60" shelf:

And:

Now for some cable cleanup...

Nice!  Glad to see you got everything working.

 

The cable cleanup has been really tough for me.  There are just so many...  and all of them need to be movable and accessible.

 

I have to work on a solution to this issue.

Kameraden,

 

Final stages of my setup with Elite Dangerous in VR with my Oculus Rift. A bit of a review of the various utilities maybe in order for tweaking.

 

We have the SteamVR console which I have set to 3.2 for Steam SS

 

Dr. Kai's tool has some VR preconfigs ready to go (have not used yet).

 

We have Oculus Tray Tools (not using yet)

 

Oculus SDK (not using yet)

 

My settings for IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad are as per Fenris Wolf and look great:

 

Your i7 7700K should run with at least 4.6GHz during IL-2 VR gameplay. Make sure to disable any AVX offset in your BIOS, very important. CPU Load-Line-Calibration must be set to 1 or 2 (fixated!) if you use water-cooling to avoid VRM temp spikes.

Make sure your DDR4 RAM runs at its proper XMP, a speed of at least ~3000 MHz is recommended to not throttle the system.

Before playing, enable "Maximum Performance" in Window's energy settings. Go into advanced settings, disable "Allow selective USB suspend".

After this, go into your "Device Manager", select "USB-Controller", and check out properties of all Generic USB hubs. Some will have a tab on "energy setting". Make sure they all have no check at "allow to suspend device to save energy".

This will treat the camera jittery. If tracking problems persist, consider buying a powered Inateck USB Controller/Card - google for models that fit to the Rift.

 

Use latest Video drivers for 1080ti.

 

Now to your IL-2 settings for your 1080ti:

Preset High. The CPU cannot handle Ultra within 10km of furballs, the fps would hit rock bottom. HDR off. SSAO off. Sharpen off. AA to 0x. Mirror to simple or one step higher. Shadows High. Terrain Detail 4x. Terrain Sharpen on. Target FPS off. Render target 1. Gamma 1.0 to 0.9. Fullscreen off (VR mirror should show as windowed), resolution 1024x768.

 

Find the Oculus Home executable, go to properties, its compatibility tab, enable "always start as administrator". This means you can start IL-2 through Steam without Oculus Home being loaded automatically as well.

 

Now to your SteamVR settings:

Steam SS to 3.2  (this replaces ingame AA and Sharpen!)

Advanced SuperSample Filtering off (removes blur and allows better IDing)

Tracking space: Sit/standing place (smallest).

 

Oculus Tray Tool, in case you use it: Don't, and keep its SS off. Don't use its features like "cpu priority", they reduce fps in IL-2.

 

Ingame, you load into the cockpit, and before or after starting the engine (not during the procedure) you hold CTRL+1(numpad) for a second, or press it multiple times, this disables ASW.

 

Check your fps by pressing backspace during flight. This costs you 1 or 2 fps while the counter is shown. Always fly without HUD, it is a crazy performance eater (speaking 15-25fps). You can set "Objectives/Map" each to a button on your joystick, to turn it on and off during flight.

 

Avoid any shaders like reshade or 3dmigoto vr shader, they cost a lot of fps and make the translational movements of your head jittery.

 

S!

Wait, is the fps hit with HUD just Oculus or with the game in general?

I still have to set up my Oculus to run smoothly with BoS.  I've been planning to do this, so your post above should really help!

With VR the HUD really drops FPS.

Thanks!

 

I have put shadows back to "High". Also of note is the pilot "VR Zoom" added in controls, I just used my regular zoom command from button mapping. Grass is set to normal.

 

It is quite a process getting everything running.

 

1, Disable any extra applications.

2, Start TARGET and confirm Joystick configuration.

3, Start SPAD.Next for gear lever.

4, Start Voice Attack for all the keyboard commands not mapped to the HOTAS.

5, Start Oculus Tray Tool.

6, Start Oculus Software.

7, Start IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad, Moscow and Kuban.

 

Let me know how it works out Klaiber.

 

S!
