It’s finally here! Good timing too considering I only just bought the game a few days ago and my single screen setup has been driving me nuts, without being able to use my WMR Odyssey+ Headset… Until now!
Thanks to Codemasters for listening to the cries of the VR fans!
The immersion is absolutely insane and brings a whole new level to the game! Initially I was concerned my Windows Mixed Reality headset would not be compatible, but I figured if it supports SteamVR, then why wouldn’t it? Anyway, it clearly works! 😀
I am still tinkering with the in-game graphics settings, but for anyone interested, I have listed my current T500rs Wheel, SteamVR and In-Game settings below with my PC specs for comparison.
PC Specs – Nothing fancy, could do with a faster CPU…
Gigabyte 1080 G1 8gb
Corsair DDR3 16gb
ASUS Sabertooth Z77
If you’re like me and using a Windows Mixed Reality headset, you’ll need to download the “SteamVR for Windows Mixed Reality” Addin. You can search and install this from within Steam itself… Thought I’d mention this just in case you’re new to WMR and Steam.

SteamVR Motion Reprojection for WMR
So unfortunately because I do not get a constant 90fps with my rig/pc, in order to reduce the motion sickness and increase the smoothness inside the headset I turn this on, it works wonders!
To ensure this is enabled, go to;
Ensure there is no // in front of “motionReprojectionMode” : “auto”,
In-Game Wheel Settings
Note: I have to leave Advanced Ambient Occulusion On, otherwise I see a strange dark shadow artifact wherever I look…
You can obviously skip my settings and fine-tune your own, but I’ll post what I do anyway.
