Ultimate VR Performance Guide

Not sure if this will improve Sabot's loading time but it may help out in other areas, such as FPS.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwjlSuPTyvc

Thanks Razor....he must have a hell of a graphics card because my lowly 1070 ti overclocked to the max will come to it's knees with MSAA = 4.

Sabot...if you are using a shader mod, next time you start DCS look at your FXO and Metashaders2 folders to see if any new files are being compiled.  I like the shader mods but everytime there is an update I delete the FXO and Metashaders2 files and it takes a while for them to compile.  They have to compile for each aircraft and each map.  It shouldn't be an issue with DCS starting slow if the new files are already there.

After every update I delete all the Metashaders in the Terrains, then kill off the FXO and another one that I can't think of off the top of my head in the "Saved Games folder.

I have about three or four mods/changes that I have the manually put in.  (ALE Flare and Chaff settings, DDI Color and the VR Shaders)

I'll then run the game in VR just to make sure everything synched

Well not sure what's going on.  I tried to use the VR Shaders mod again today and for some reason just the stock DCS works better as far as getting more FPS.  I went out on a limb and updated the Nvidia driver (466.63) and changed the Virtual Reality pre-rendered frames to 4.  Since I can't find any video cards to upgrade my tired 1070 ti, I bought a AMD Ryzen 5 5600x which has a very fast single core benchmark.  Since DCS only uses 2 cores all the experts say that single core speed is the key.  Anyways with Steam SS set to 225% which is equal to a DCS PD of 1.5 I can get at least 45 FPS.

All the guys in the group with VR that fly IL2 and DCS said this helped a lot.  Tazman said to say hello, he's in 352VFG with me.  I don't have VR yet, so I can't attest to how well it may work from personal experience, need a new Video card for that.  Hey Razor..........  cusanu fy arwisgiad
edit: I told you this old brain is a bit fuzzy, I forgot the link to the video I was talking about.  Forget my ass if it wasn't hung on me.. but I have seen the flash screen for that video on here. 

Here's the latest one I found on DCS, this guy is extremely anal, 10x more than me..  https://forums.eagle.ru/topic/257819-my-3090-settings-for-my-g2-275/

Cheers

I've played with a lot of different setups and setting and found this to work very well.  The noted video describes things, but in the video near the end there is another video linked where he goes thru his settings.  These work very well.  I'm very steady at 45fps and tweaking.
