Thread: VR set up for X-Plane (or possibly FSX)

    Default VR set up for X-Plane (or possibly FSX)

    Hey All

    I've been running FSX on my laptop since it came out, and have recently decided to upgrade to VR, but I need some help to get started as there seem to be so many options.

    I think I need:

    Oculus Rift headset
    X-Plane simulator

    But I'm confused about whether X-Plane is better for VR than FSX, and also about whether I need something called Fly Inside.

    If anyone who has converted to 3D VR immersion has any experience, I would be very grateful about what sort of rig you set up - also, is it worth buying a yoke and throttles etc?

    Finally - system requirements - I have a HP Pavilion laptop, which for all its many faults, runs FSX pretty well. Here are the specs:

    Processor: Intel Core i7 8th Gen CPU @ 1.80GHz 1.99GHz
    Installed RAM: 16.0 GB
    64 Bit
    Display Adapters:

    Intel UHD Graphics 620
    NVIDIA GeForce 940MX

    Your 940mx is not good enough to do VR. A 940m (laptop model, m stands for mobile) is only half as good as the 940 desktop version. And even the 940 wouldn't do VR.

    I agree. I have a 1070ti and it does ok but not great so that 940 ain't gonna cut it. My wife has a laptop with a 1050ti in it and it is very laggy in VR. Time to upgrade my friend. Sorry for the bad news.
