Oculus, VR. Incorrect water reflections. Reflections move with my head.

Postby stil550 » Sun Sep 01, 2019 3:16 am

Hello,

I'm experiencing a problem with the VR rendering of the water reflections. The reflections move with my head. Reflection behave correctly on the monitor so its purely a VR bug.

It appears the reflection map is attached to the HMD rotation, similarly to how clouds rotate with the headset when you are close to them.

Tried deleting the shader folder, it did not help.
Behavior is exactly the same on the brand new install of Prepar3d without any add-ons as it is with the add-ons.

My computer:
Windows 10, 64bit
16 GB ram
i5 4690 @ 3.50 GHz
GeForce GTX 1080 Ti

VR:
Oculus Rift

Add-Ons:
ORBX - Base
ORBX - Vector
ORBX - openLC North America
ORBX - openLC Europe


Would really appreciate some help with this as I'm flying without reflections at the moment in VR.

Thank you.

Is anyone else having this issue?
I've tried searching for this, but I haven't seen anyone reporting this behavior anywhere else on the forums.
I honestly do not think that this is specific to my system, but rather a bug with the Prepar3d itself.

However the lack of others noticing this could be a due couple of things:

a: not a lot of VR users and out of this small pool of users, those who did notice it have not posted it.
b: those who do use VR might be turning off reflections to gain FPS and therefor are unaware of this issue.
c: could still be just my system bugging out.

Any feedback from anyone would be greatly appreciated.

I see the reflections moving with head movement as well when I am in VR. I use a Rift CV1. It is noticeable. The other performance issues in VR (lack of FPS, periodic loading of terrain, etc.) make the reflection issue minor to me. So, I haven't mentioned it before.

Fair enough, but without reporting it Devs might not even be aware that the issue exists. Also this might be an easy fix within a shader compared to the system's stability and FPS optimization, so you know a "low hanging fruit".

Thanks for replying at least I'm not alone on this one.

I havn't noticed that specific issue so far but the one with the clouds rotating I do have!
