Rx, Ry @ 2448 == A whole new level!

Hi All,

I have been very happy with the Vive Focus 3 since the last vbs patch.

However, whilst trying to eek out some more clarity from DCS World (A combat flight simulator), I finally decided to tweak the QualityPreset.json file so that the highest quality setting is using the native resolution of the headset.

ie I tweaked it from Rx, Ry 2048 to 2448.

I was a little concerned my system would have issues as my graphics card is an ancient 1080ti, but as it turns out there were no issues either wired or using wifi!

The results? Stunning. It elevates this headset up another level. If you have the computing horsepower, I highly recommend that you make this change.

HTC really need to add an ultra setting to VBS, one that supports the native resolution of the headset.

I have played Half Life Alyx and Skyrim over wireless and Assetto Corsa Competizione and DCS World wired without any issue.

I have found that wired seems to help with the smoothness for the sims, though I have no idea why.

The QualityPreset.json file should be under C:\ProgramData\HTC\ViveSoftware\ViveRR\RRServer. I made this tweak (in Bold  )

    "FOCUS3": [
        
        {
            "PS": 0,
            "RS": 1.0,
            "OF": 1.0,
            "RX": 2448,
            "RY": 2448,
            "BR": 100000000,
            "CP": 1
        },
        
        {
            "PS": 1,
            "FPS": 90,
            "RS": 1.0,
            "OF": 1.0,
            "RX": 1728,
            "RY": 1728,
            "BR": 100000000,
            "CP": 2
        },
        
        {
            "PS": 2,
            "RS": 1.0,
            "OF": 1.0,
            "RX": 1536,
            "RY": 1536,
            "BR": 100000000,
            "CP": 3
        }
    ]

You can confirm it is working by checking out the resolution of the headset on the VBS client when running.

As always, back up your configuration file first!

As for my computer specs:

nVidia 1080ti with 11Gb RAM

Intel Core i9-9900KS @ 4.0 Ghz

32Gb RAM

For Wifi I'm running at max quality and 200 Mbps and max sharpening.

I'm using a Wifi6 router connected directly to my PC via a wired connection. 

The router is a TP-Link AX1800.

To be frank I'm just floored. First I had a big upgrade when I bought the Wifi 6 router. Then it went up a notch with the latest VBS patch. And now with the file hack it is on another level entirely.

If you have similar specs to me, I highly recommend you make this file tweak 🙂

For Skyrim you have to go into steam and assign a new controller binding. The default ones don't work. Luckily other people have made bindings already. I think I use the Vive Cosmos ones and they work a treat 🙂
