    Hjola, I have been with assetto corsa and oculus rift for a short time. I wanted to know if it is possible to disable the screen mirror of the monitor when I am in the race.
    Sorry for my english XD

    Thanks!!

    F11 show/hide the virtual mirror while playing.
    Let me know if it solves.

    You can turn Oculus "mirror texture" off in Documents/Assetto Corsa/cfg/oculus.ini
    [MIRROR_TEXTURE]
    ENABLED=0

    I think he means turning off the output to the monitor (not the individual mirrors) perhaps?

    I've read that doesn't save on GPU/CPU usage that much anyway so is fairly pointless.

    That's exactly what
    [MIRROR_TEXTURE]
    ENABLED=0
    does.

    Hi. Should I modify the Oculus.ini in my documents or in ACs home folder?

    Doesn't turning ON 'Fullscreen' do the same (ie. turn off mirroring to the monitor)? I notice Fullscreen ON blanks out my monitors, whereas OFF mirrors to my monitor. Is there a disadvantage to setting Fullscreen to OFF?

    Just to quote myself, since I posted this I have done extensive VR benchmarks with RF2 using the FCAT software from Nvidia, sure enough the monitor mirror causes no significant loss of framerate at all. Therefore it's fairly safe to assume it's the same in AC or any game that mirrors to monitor, but my tests don't speak for every machine of course :)

    Just to be sure: you mean "sure enough the monitor mirror causes no significant loss of framerate at all"?
