A few days ago talking to a friend of a group of Telegram in Spain that we have for the sponsors of pimax 8k, he told us that he saw a default.vrsettings file in the configuration of SteamVR with a parameter maxRecommendedResolution: 4096, he modified that value and now if it admits an SS greater than a resolution of 4096.
Also, this doesn’t seem to work for me. Tested with newest PiTool, parallel projections on, kept Steam SS at 100% and Pitool at 1.0. Normal looks good, Large FOV looks worse. I only tested in SteamVR Home. Maybe actual games show a difference?
Yep. Restarted Steam going back and forth. That’s how I knew the settings didn’t work, since the rendered resolution was worse with Large. I usually go to Normal then start SteamVR, and then go to Large. That still looks better than Large --> Start SteamVR.
Did you tried to revert to 4096 to see if the resolution sinks ?
I saw this setting some time ago, but deduce that “MaxRecomendedResolution” was to stop SteamVR to auto move the slider to resolutions that the Vive/VivePro display can´t render and waste GPU resources (100% diminished returns).
