Re: Can't get SimDirector to start from P3D and other issues

All functions that I was concerned about with SimDirector seem to be OK now that I have eliminated the old Megascenery SoCal from the scenery list - there must be some BGLs that cause trouble.

Carry on

Re: Can't get SimDirector to start from P3D and other issues

@aeronauta (Jorge), Thanks for the reply. So I tried turning off various sceneries as you suggested and found that the old (10 years or more??) MegaScenery Socal (Southern California) is my problem. When I disable it, I get the catalog to load OK. I wish Simdirector let me exclude the catalog of obj...

Can't get SimDirector to start from P3D and other issues

If I start with Prepar3Dv4.4 default scenario at Norfolk, finish loading, and then try to select Tools->SimDirector, it begins loading terrain but never gets to the execution of the tool itself. If I start just SimDirector, it comes up fine - except that the Loading Catalog "wait" dot-circle keeps g...

Can control HMD - Recalibrate Origin with button

Have tried both a button on my XBox controller and one on my joystick but I can't seem to get connected to HMD- Recalibrate Origin. This is with Prepar3Dv4.3

Re: Display Settings Using VR

@OP, Sounds like you might have some system issues - maybe you could try underclocking the CPU or GPU. Oculus Tray Tool is indeed asking your graphics card to render 30% or so more pixels so it can later downsample to the Oculus Rift display resolution. This also might be the reason for the crazy li...

Re: Display Settings Using VR

Please start by telling us as much as possible about your PC - which CPU and at what Ghz, how much RAM at what speed, which video card and what driver version, what OS and build level, which VR HMD and what version of its drivers, and what version of Prepar3D are you running. Are you using Oculus Tr...

Re: VR in Versions 4.2 and 4.3

When you check the version of your Oculus Runtimes (Settings->General at the bottom) do you see 1.29.xxx ??

Also, are other VR games working fine?

Re: Missing virtual reality menu

What other Oculus VR apps are working fine? Any other flight simulations? Make sure VR is working in general before starting P3D.

Re: LM fixed the NVSurround Distortion

What FOV do you need for the three projectors - 150 degrees (extreme limit for NVSurround - single projection view) or more. Most three projector systems want to see about 210 degrees so you can look straight down either wing.

Re: VR SETTINGS

@OP (neilos118), The other major issue in VR is to choose the highest framerate sceneries that you have. I have one from Paulo Ricardo for the city of Rio that he really optimized for performance even with many many buildings and several airports - beautiful. If you run without VR, the frame rate wi...

Re: VR SETTINGS

@OP,
Make sure you try Single Pass mode for VR. I use Oculus Tray Tool with Super Sampling at 1.4 and ASW mode at 45fps.

Graphics Settings:
1) FXAA off, AA = 2xSSAA
2) Low water
3) HDR = OFF, Shadow quality = OFF Sorry!

Re: VR SETTINGS

@MartinM, I can't seem to make more than one "move" left/right/forward/aft control setting on my POV hat - this is a Thrustmaster HOTAS.X - the Key Assignments Options page just says Hat Switch 1 when I push any of the 8 positions of the HAT switch. Several other flight sims (DCS, AFS2) let me make ...

Re: Several features disabled in V4.3 Academic License

Turns out it was an older scenario file that had the following "local mission" capability - not sure if that still works anyway. That provided extra objects and the ability to generate moving models - like Sim Director. The file had the following in it : <Section Name="ObjectFile"> <Property Name="F...

Re: V4.3 VR

@Kayla, It's very hard to take a "screenshot" in VR - has to be taken through the VR lens. I reported and described the boat wake issue back when 4.2 came out. It simply isn't a single continuous wake - it breaks up into areas that are visibile and invisible - plus one eye is different than the othe...
