    Vittorio. I am pondering taking the plunge for VorpX. What are your thoughts and feedback. I'd appreciate your opinion as to justify the 40 dollar expense. Thank you sir!

    Thanks, I didn't notice the expert settings before. You can make it look ok in G3D but the performance impact is just too big fo me, can't even stay at 75 fps.

    I think it will be a long way until I do my first proper race in VR...

    Does the last DK2 runtime works with this plugin and rfactor2? I've readed Oculus is dropping DirectX 9 support.
    I am trying to make this working with tridef's 14 days trial.
    But haven't updated the Oculus runtime to the last one yet.

    Updated: got it working, it is not bad but have lag in the head tracking, specially if I move my head fast. Also the tracking is not smooth. Anyone noticed this?
    I have between 100 and 130 FPS.

    i noticed that too using plugin+vorpx. enabling VSYNC in nvidia control panel solved this.

    Thank you Vittorio, VSYNC did nothing for me. Anyway I finally had time to try it properly and until ISI supports it officially it is good enough.
    I haven't played this game since my rift arrived last September and it is so great.
    But I don't know if I will buy tridef, because iracing and Assetto Corsa have a better rift support.

    I haven't figured out completey yet. Is it possible to drive rf2 with the latest Oculus Runtime in any way using vorpx or tridef and all the plugins mentioned in this thread?
    I am an OSW owner and the FFB of rf2 is definetely the best of all sims in my opinion but I have to use the DK2 because I haven't a triple screen anymore.

    TriDef tutorial runs perfectly. I drive since months on the DK2.
    Also found out how to majorly improve picture quality and it makes a huge difference.

    I have 2 way SLI 970, so try out what your system can handle. you will quickly catch on how everything works together.
    Recommended: MSI Afterburner + Rivatuner for ingame FPS monitor in the Rift - here's the tutorial how to do that https://forums.oculus.com/viewtopic.php?t=15654

    Do vittorios tutorial and then try this out fellow DK2 users:

    In general, don't use VSYNC. Just make sure you always have 75fps

    SweetFX
    Install SweetFX for sharpening the image: Use the tutorial from atlas over in the Elite Dangerous forums: https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php?t=117345
    SweetFX you put into Bin32 folder. Ignore the DK2 display set up with low contrast, leave it as it is.
    Please turn off all settings in the SweetFX_settings but #define USE_LUMASHARPEN and leave at "1"

    nV Controlpanal
    Activate Downsampling in nV Controlpanel: DSR x1.78, underneath it set slider to 10%
    Turn on Nvidia FXAA for rF2, max performance (just in case) and if you can:
    AF x16
    texture quality "highest"
    AA transperancy 8x Supersample

    In-Game GFX Settings:
    Choose your new resolution @1440p
    Turn off HDR! Way better contrasts, image quality and big FPS boost
    Choose ISI's MSAA Level 3 (Level 2 should do just fine if 3 is to much for your GPU)
    Textures you can set everything on high (if enough VRAM, you can check how much rF2 uses with Afterburner. Prefer Downsampling over game textures)
    Shadows Low
    Turn off Special effects, soft particels, all reflections - you don't see them anyway and just eat up 3D performance with no reward.

    in TriDef I use WorldScale 0.06

    BAM, enjoy "stunning" DK2 picture quality ;)
    You now have feeling for speed, can look into distance and even see brake markers :D

    EDIT:
    P.S. I use TriDef and think everyone else should, too. vorpX is imo a scam. it's fake 3D and performance is just a bad joke. burnt my money hard on that one. not even an old game like Batman Arkham Asylum ran over 25-30fps... support ignored me after confronting him with that issue

    What do you mean with full view? In regards of TriDef? Vittorios tutorial gives you 100% 3D-VR and full tracking.
    Picture quality: I'd say on track it as good or even better as iRacing and this is amazing considering iRacing has direct support. Menus aren't comparable of course, though.

    oh, I forgot that in TriDef I use WorldScale 0.06 - the world and object sizes seem in better relation to each other. Note that some of ISI's car's are not super accurately modeled in this regard. Some steering wheels just seem either to big or to small. The skippy is nice! Edited and added to my initial post.

    Yes, just using LUMASHARPEN will reduce this foggy blurriness from the DK2 picture. And if you can add DSR and AA then you are in for a treat =) Racing rF2 in VR is such a great experience - it's really awesome. With improved picture quality I now drive better in the DK2 then without. Can't imagine racing looking at a normal screen anymore xD

    Hey guys, I have followed everything from Vittorio's latest instructions (post #212), and everything is working really well (thanks Vittorio!) except that the 3D perspective seems to be off. If I park on top of a line that goes off into the distance (the edge of the track for instance), I see two lines diverging into the distance, separated by maybe 20 degrees or so. They converge at me, and everything close to me is in focus, but I can't focus into the distance. It's not that things are fuzzy, everything is crisp, it's just that the two images split apart the further things get from me. I've tried every combination of nVidia, Oculus, rF2, and TriDef settings that I can think of with no luck yet. Any thoughts? Does my brain just not want to see 3D?

    I'm having the same issue and i cant find it a workaround.
    I've messaged GKZ asking for his tridef profile which he kindly provided me, but i still having this same issue, everything that is near is perfect but things that are somewhat further don't converge and it produces eye strain because our brains are trying to "make" a single image with two separate images.
    What GPU are you using? i'm on a R9 280.
    I want to use Rfactor2 but Oculus seems to have killed standard monitor racing for me.
    I don't even know if we will have support on CV1 because Oculus dropped DX9 apps support.
