HTC Vive Ghosting


Recommended Posts

Basically the title. I'm getting horrific Ghosting while playing on the HTC Vive.

I'm playing with a 1050ti, i7-7700HQ and 16 GB of RAM. I know it's under the recommended but I was expecting choppy framerates and possibly input lag, but what I'm experiencing is just completely disgusting. My games run completely fine due to lowered settings and such, but the ghosting that now occurs is even worse than low framerates. It's gotten to the point where I can barely play 5 minutes without the urge to puke due to the effect it's having on my eyes.


 if a bit smooth (My ghosting is a lot more jittery).


Any help is appreciated! I really want to play more VR but I can't be almost puking every session because of something I have absolutely not idea how to fix.

What are you reprojection and motion smoothing settings? The blurring is likely one of the two and the compositor will tell you if it's smoothing or reprojecting the frames. You can try disabling the reprojection and you may have less ghosting - start off by playing with disabling these settings (or possibly enabling them depending on your current settings). 


This is why it's critical to have powerful enough hardware to hit 90FPS - if you expose your brain to bad input you will get VR sick and there's simply no way around that. There may be no way around this except to have a more powerful GPU. The introduction of the GTX2060 means that it's alot more affordable nowadays to have a good VR card and it lowered the prices of the 10 series cards even further.

Started out great fun to play. About a week and a half past the return date the vive stopped working. We did all the trouble shooting on steam and htc's sites nothing helped. Contacted HTC Tec support they gave a few others to try but they didn't work. Sent the head set in for repair. HTC is telling me to pay $270.00 for the repair. they say its water damaged. How can you make something that gets strapped to your body (head) and not make it water (sweat) proof. I own watches and phones that are water proof. And for the head set not to be is a manufacturer flaw. Also HTC changed the wording of their warrantee from does not cover water damage other than perspiration to does not cover water damage. So now I'll have to contact a lawyer , BBB and consumer protection agency
