Hardware & Reviews / Occulus VR Tuning Ideas
« on: August 05, 2020, 06:35:55 PM »
Just looking at some advice if anyone has some tips.

Current System: AMD FX8350, 12G DDR3, 256GB SSD, RX 580 4GB. Everything running standard clocks.

More and more I am getting issues with framerates and it is amplified with certain mods and mod tracks. If I run on my own with any content, I get an easy 90fps. When I add a grid full of cars, I get drops to 35-40 which is bearable, but with the GroupA and C cars, I'm getting drops to 25 and below. When I check the VRAM settings in the AMD console, Its maxxed out no matter how I set the detail and world level.

In the graphics test sequence, I can max out everything but leave the post processing off and I get a very usable 45fps. Not ideal but very usable. I have everything on medium and get 90fps everywhere except the main straight where it drops to 45 and the graphics VRAM is sitting about 53%.  Using the Group A and C cars, it goes straight to 100% and framerates drop to as low as 17.

I wont be qualifying in the coming series which is a shame as I seem to have some genuine mid pack pace in these cars and I do like driving them but I have no intention of crashing into someone because of framerates on lap 1.

I am trying to avoid getting a 8GB card and wanted to know if anyone has a few ideas to try. I've tries a lot of the stuff on google with no success. Does anyone use Crossfire and was there a perfermance gain. I get mixed reports when I look into it.

Thanks everyone

Hardware & Reviews / VR recommendations in 2019

I know this is covered a few times but just got a bonus from my boss for working obscene amount of hours in the last few weeks with instructions to buy myself a VR headset for my online racing. Since I only spend race nights in my sim usually I am looking at the value of getting the Occulus rift vs one of the cheaper headsets. If I get a cheaper headset, I can also get the wheel and shifter for my clubsport wheel project but I am reasonably happy with my TS300 GT for now except for the horrible brake pedal feel.

My budget at the moment is $750 and the only sims I use right now is AC and on the rare occasion, Kart Racing Pro.

Hardware & Reviews / Looking for a Fanatec Wheel
« on: March 30, 2018, 09:25:39 PM »
I have just come across a really cheap upgrade and will take delivery of a Fanatec Clubsport V1 wheel base and pedals. I have a couple of repairs to take care of first but one thing that does not come with it is the wheel itself. Does anyone out there have a wheel only for one of these things they're willing to sell?

I will look at getting the universal mount and my own wheel but for now, a basic wheel for testing would be great


Cars & Bikes / Finally got my toy
« on: March 23, 2018, 07:34:36 PM »
Well, I finally have my toy here and am going to try and get her ready for a track day in May. She's not a bad starting point for a track car but we'll see how reliable she's going to be.

Can a generous soul out there send me the aim file from a practice session or race. I want to make sure it is similar. I am running a G25 and am getting lots of weird info from dropping in and out of gear to random clutch applications and only max of 97% throttle. I want to make sure it's not a translation issue from the generated data.
