    Is anyone playing fs2020 with windows mixed reality? Im just curious if anyone has had any luck with reprojection. Some people claim it is buttery smooth at 22.5 fps. My main issue is when I turn my head the headset doesn't seem to keep up.

    Im running rtx3070 with 3700x processor.

    Have you tried turning down graphics settings, if so what do you have them set at?

    I tried turning the graphics down almost all the way last night. It was still a jerky mess. I then turned reprojection off and it plays much smoother. I think I will call it good enough for now and get back to flying.

    Thanks for the help!

    Just tried it for the first time last night very good but for some reason my cheap flight stick only works but cannot see any action in the helicopter. The other I installed the helicopter and did not see it till the newest update.

    I did not try this helicopter by myself, but only the one I mentioned in this post.

    With this Bell 47, I initially had the problem that my controllers did not work correctly. For example, I saw the helicopter's rudder pedals move when I pushed my controller pedals, but the helicopter did not react accordingly by turning left/right.
    The reason was that I had some of the flight model simplifications enabled within MSFS. After disabling them, all helicopter controls worked as expected. Not sure though if the source of your problem is similar.

    Since a recent update which corrected the acceleration bug, we are finally able to profile a coherent classical washout algorithm for 6-dof rigs.

    Here a simple starting point quickly tuned for FS2020 Zlin Shock Ultra and some settings for VR with virtual tracker for MC (G2 headset with internal tracking) and rendering optimisations.

    You can also save about 30s. launch time by creating an extra shortcut explained here:

    IMPORTANT: Don't forget to adapt the rig geometry and range to your design.

    Big hug to @pmvcda

    Half way through downloading update 5, hopefully this will let me run in the 8KX at a good quality and frame rate :think.

    I am up in the Sunshine State for the next week and a half, so let us know how the post update performance is.
