After disappointing VR appearance and performance with my initial attempt at installing AC (and then subsequently uninstalling it), I am trying again with more gusto, but it feels a bit overwhelming given all the graphics options, especially when adding CSP+SOL into the mix. Given AC's popularity, I am hoping someone can suggest a good starting point given an HP Reverb G2 and RTX 3080. The only nuance I've come across so far is that I should set AA to x16 in Nvidia control panel and then off in AC. I am sure there are many other tweaks. Curious if someone has solid settings they can share, along with any other tweaks (like using AMD FidelityFX), to get the best out of AC in VR. Thanks for any help you can spare!

I run AC on my system (i9 10850k 64gig and a 2070super) with my g2. Yes NCP (nvidia control panel) does anistropic filtering a lot more efficiently than AC does on the whole. I run the latest SOL, CSP with natural filter (which is highly optimised for VR and get a very nice looking 55-60fps at 100% supersampling in steam. I'd seriuosly look at Andrew_WOT's VR guide on here, just do a search and it'll pop up. Unfortunately there's no one stop fix for great performance or appearence as with most things VR it's a balancing act of the two, so you'll spend days and days fiddling with settings in CSP to get the best balance.

That, is what my basic settings look like. Ignore the 114fps, as that's for single screen replay stuff with reshade running and everything else maxed out not VR. That being said with a grid of 25 cars on oulton park I can get 58-68fps with that, When you introduce things like rain, halve the frame rate you get as it takes a major hit in the wet. Hope this helps out

Today I ran FidelityFX at Ultra and Sharpen set to Auto with Steam SS set to 150% fixed to 60fps and it looks stunning. The distant mountains are now awesome on LAC. Finally the full resolution of the G2 can be had in AC running 20 cars in the dry. It is a game changer, like buying the next gen GPU.
Try turning off Post Proccessing Effects, turning off Post Proccessing Anti-Aliasing, turning off FXAA, set reflections and shadows to 1024, crank Steam SS up to 150% for a 3080 (or whatever your GPU can handle) and let me know what you think. ;)

did u liked it better this time @Chipless?
im soon to build a new pc, but debating if i can afford the 3090 or 3080 ti. Perhaps with FidelityFx and a regular 3080 will be enough?... just in it for the immersion and not for online competative driving.

I got sucked into tweaking the visuals of AMS2, so I haven't booted up AC in a while now. I will report back when I get a chance. I doubt the cost of the 3090 or the 3080Ti is justified over the base 3080, but then again I am not certain what current prices are. I was lucky enough to get my 3080 in the Newegg Shuffle at MSRP. Whatever you can get at the most reasonable price is probably the best move.

Thanks for the input here. It was invaluable and I will update more when I can.
