  1. I'm using the Steam version with an Oculus Rift. Since a couple of days for some reason I cannot start the Oculus VR mode anymore. SteamVR works perfect. 
    When I start the Oculus SDK version I get the start screen with ...loading... in my Rift and after about 30 secs the game on the second screen (monitor) starts. Then a message appears about missing the Oculus Rift and try to reconnect cables etc? I only have this with DR2.0. Other games/apps work in Oculus mode. 

    Did already a game integrity check via Steam, completely uninstalled and reinstalled Oculus and a new Oculus setup, Not enabled any beta mode in Oculus and Steam(VR). Disabled starting Oculus Home.

    Hopefully a simple user error which I overlook at the moment? Anyone a suggestion? Thanks!

  2. Hi hopefully ok to report my first feedback after the 1.8.1 update with regards to VR

    Playing DR2.0 Deluxe version on PC Steam with an Oculus Rift. 

    Could be placebo or real fact (?)--> I changed nothing on my side but it seems VR runs much smoother. Even during night stages and heavy rain. Looks gorgeous

    I also noticed while running several daily challenges that only the first stage (bonus challenge heavy raining Argentina) the UI was larger and clearly readable. Great!!
    But all other daily stages the old smaller (and unreadable) text. I did not test it by going back to main menu and start another daily challenge. I stayed in the same mode and proceeded with the daily challenges accordingly. 

     


  3. Idem. First start of the game a message regarding a mismatch which has to do with something about the 'championship'
    Although after waiting a while I get connection but all credits seems to be gone? 

    Then restarted several times. The error message did not show up anymore but
    - All credits still gone.
    - Also D+ logo top right not visible anymore
    - When trying to enter my garage a time out error

    Will try later today and hopefully everything is back to normal so I can repair my cars 😉


  4. Played and tested the new 1.8 in VR (Steam/Oculus Rift/1080ti). First of all great that you can choose to start in 2D or VR via steam menu. I always race in VR and my son in 2D. 
    VR mode seems to be equally the same as before. I expected UI text the be larger or closer by.

    I think performance wise no changes (is that correct?) and I'm already satisfied with the VR performance so far.

    After the update it is not possible to record telemetry data when using VR (works without VR). Neither RDA nor SimHub gets any data on the port 20777. 

    For someone who doesn't enjoy driving without VR, and take setups & tuning seriously, this is quite a bummer. 

    I had the same. Non VR my NLRv3 and Simhub works but in VR it doesn't. That's because a new hardware config VR file was added. You have to copy your motion 'lines' from the default hardware settings file to the new hardware config VR file and then it works again. 

    Hope this helps also for you.

    • What platform you're playing on (Steam or Oculus). Oculus (but Steam VR starts automatically when starting DR2.0)
    • What headset you're using. Oculus Rift
    • What your PC setup/build is like (graphics card, processor etc.). i7-7700k , 1080ti, 32GB, 512SSD
    • Whether you're a Standard or Deluxe user (Steam only). Deluxe user
    • Whether or not you have any non-standard peripherals connected, like steering wheels, gaming mice etc.  Fanatec DD1, Fanatec H shifter+handbrake and NLRv3 motion platform connected

    VR performance is really poor. You have to turn down all graphic options to the lowest value to have a car run 'smooth' through a stage (tried, Australia, Germany, Wales and Monaco).
    But with too low graphics it does not look that well . If you turn up to mid/high the graphics are obviously ok but the stuttering is massive and it becomes unplayable.

    I start DR2.0 VR via Steam as I also bought it via Steam. Then it both starts SteamVR as well as Oculus home.
