    pCARS 2 and VR

    Since pCARS2 will be the next big sim title to come out, I was wondering what we know about improvements to VR (HTC Vive), if any. I've looked around the forum but may have missed info related to VR support/improvements. Thanks!

    Let's just say, along with everything else wrt to pC2 that you won't be disappointed.

    Glad to hear that! I've managed to get pCARS looking good in VR but still mostly playing AC since it has the best VR experience for me (visually and performance)... but how I miss pCARS AI, tracks, weather etc!!! I feel pCARS2 will be a great indicator as to what we can expect for VR for the next year or so.

    Well, I could write ( i just did but deleted ) and develop on the subject. I'll just say that AC is still my last choice for a sim, even if we speak VR only.

    But to hopefully avoid flaming, it's probably due to revive. I just can't get rid of the microstutter even alone at the track. There are other issues but this alone is a game breaker because it does not help *me* with nausea and headaches.

    I've not had issues with mircostutter, been successful at keeping between 80-88 fps for the most part. Even then it looks good graphics wise. It's the rest of the issues (AI, tracks, no weather etc.) that bore me. If I had VR issues, I'd abandon it quickly.

    I'm with as far as AC concerned. It's my least favorite of all of them. I've got hundreds and hundreds of hours in on all the simbin titles, rfactor, dirt rally series ect., but can't get into AC. I have less than 200 hrs in with AC and most of that was fiddling with the settings and then quitting with disappointment with the car sounds, lack of track and cars, weather ect. The game never felt right to me, even in VR.

    Oh well....at least I have all the others to play and I'm really looking forward to pCARS2!

    AC is my last choice of the sims I play, I left it for pCARS and R3E a while ago. To be honest, the only reason I got back on it was due to VR. For some reason, it works very well for me. I can run hours on it with no problem in VR. And graphics wise, it really does a great job, even running through Revive. Let's just say that I'll be a happy man once pCARS2 comes out. Even if VR is improved 10-20%, It'll be the only sim title I'll load up. Looking forward to what Sector 3 Studios has in store for R3E too; they seem very proactive and have a great sim in my opinion.

    AC doesn't have that problem on my PC(pretty similar to yours including Vive), but I still prefer PCars especially because of the day/night(godrays!!) transition and weather among other things. AC tends to feel bland and unengaging(to me). If I'm multiplaying with my friends at my home we tend to switch from time to time, but that's 95% down to AC having mods. So we can race on tracks like Assen.

    If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough.

    Well, just sitting in the pitlane, stoped and no AI it's visible for me by just moving my head

    /edit

    Let me rephrase this one. It's worse when stopped at pit lane. Start moving and it'll turns into micro-stutter. Masked by the speed things are passing by, probably.

    And the rain!!! OMG. I ran the Mercedes Sauber C9 in the rain and it was great! FPS took a hit, but pCARS manages low frame rates very well in VR! Gotta love a true Vive support! Well done SMS!
