Anyone ever get Elite Dangerous to go non-PP?

I recently tried a method to load Elite Dangerous with Oculus mode from the OVR_launcher combined with a batch to pass the server token. It worked! …Only for my FPS for some reason to be tanked to about half what it was in steam VR with PP on.

Anyone have ideas?

I have no experience with ED without using SteamVR, but I wonder if the Oculus mode defaults to a higher res. You might try reducing the Quality (res) in PiTool, to see if you get a reasonable framerate with an acceptable image quality. My understanding is that you’re correct and PP isn’t needed in Oculus mode, so it should be faster, not slower.

yeah even that was same, triple-checked. I think Oculus games may just have a slower translation? I’'ll keep trying.

There is a lot of discussion here that may help. Not sure how successful they were.

This is in the old section of the forum thst is in read only mode.

@ziddan @park might have some ideas.

Can you describe the method you used? I would like to give it a go as well.
Right now i can play Odyssey on 45fps locked, normal fov using a 3090 and I7-9700K, 32gb ram. But ofcourse it dips lower sometimes. Graphic settings are a mix of low and high.

I have batch files that snag the token from your elite dangerous login and spit it out with the command line for loading in oculus. Let me find those and will get back to you. Do you mind receiving batch files via email or is there a better way to share. Im afraid I have to look up who to credit for these as I didnt create them. Is there a good way to post them to the forum? I imagine not as they are batch files

I’m afraid my email will block the batch files. I think it’s possible to copy the contents of the batch files here in a post. This way i can try to create one from it.
Does it work with Odyssey?

Unfortunately, no. The only files you can attach to a forum post are pictures. If it’s text, you can post it as a quote. Otherwise, you need to use a storage site, like Microsoft 1 Drive and post a link to the file.
