The game which has been out for over a year has been a pain to get a decent performance out off. With random stutters and freezes and inconsistent framerates its been well a huge disappointment personally. So much so that I had given up on ever playing it again due to state of the Graphic’s Card market (With Sky-high prices) and the only way to get it running anywhere decent would be a graphics card upgrade.
The August update/Xbox release Patch :
Ever since the august patch/Xbox Release (world update 5) there were reports that this latest patch would give a huge performance increase. Some outlets reported a 50% increase in performance which I doubted most of these outlets have access to newer Graphics cards.
The august update give the game at least a 50% increase in performance amazing! The game which would never let me fly over high-populated areas like NewYork and London would finally and my god my first trip over New York was stunning. Looking down below at streets and cars moving along while seeing buildings for miles was incredible.
If you’ve ever had to create a new project with the node package manager you’ll have seen it install a load of “dependencies” installed onto your simple project. After a while you’ll end up with multiple projects and multiple folders of “node_modules”. No problem you say, but it will be when you start running out of space!
You can always reinstall them back with a;
Deleting one of these folders can take a few minutes so imagine having more than one project and “node_modules” for each project. This can take up to many gigs of space depending on the project.
this great util will allow you to delete multiple node_modules folders across different projects;
So a few months ago i seen Amazon had a sale on the VR headset ive followed for years the Oculus Rift. It was cheaper than i had ever seen before so i ordered one.
Excitement for Flying in PC VR with Flight Simulator 2020: I cant begin to describe how excited i was to connect it to my PC in order to play Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020, my entire reason for buying it. I had a PC capable of VR and Graphics card well up for the task.
Problems: When you connect the Oculus to your PC it does a check to see if everything is ok. You need to plug 1 cable into a USB 3.0 port (no problem I thought, I have loads! Then you plug the other cable into your Graphics card. The software checks to see if all is good.
The Test: I spent days searching for the problem and hoping there was a simple fix. I read post after post but nothing. i tried everything i read;
reinstall Oculus software
reinstall USB drivers
USB 3 Ports: The motherboard i have has 4 USB 3 ports some of them 3.2 gen and above, shouldn’t be any problems!
The Fucking Red-Green Headset Sensor Check nightmare: Those two green checkmarks you get are great until they go red and you pull the cable out and reinsert and you get it green or red. This plug in and out bullshit fucking killed my interest in the headset.
Sensor cant track headset:Stuff of nightmares
Researching the problem: I knew or thought i did that somebody must know the reason for this because Oculus didnt. All the help they give is to disconnect the headset for 10 seconds and reconnect it. The number of times i did that.
The solution: There’s no way id have ever figured this out without reading a reddit post saying to buy a USB 3 self powered hub from amazon. it sounds so simple, I cant even remember how or why i found the post i did but if i remember right the person said they had the same problem i was mentioning.
Ever since i upgraded my PC last year, my Windows 10 pc will not go to sleep and neither will the monitor and that’s with a fresh Windows 10 installation. The first thing i did was to press the “Restore default settings for this plan”..didnt work.
I’m really finding it hard to figure out how this is a problem when with my old hardware it was never a problem. The only thing i cant think off is that its the motherboard and some setting in BIOS thats not quite right.
This problem has been happening since i installed the new hardware and for some reason i thought it was normal..but remembered how my old PC would behave it would just go to sleep when the windows 10 power settings told it too.
Hardware Specs: MSI B 450-A PRO (latest BIOS) AMD Ryzen 2600 Win 10 64 210h (latest) 32GB DDR 4 3000
USB Controller/Joystick being plugged in.
Solution: After reading about the same problem being caused by a controller being plugged in, I disconnected the Joystick from my PC and within one min the screen had gone off.
