I hope this is the right place to post this. When I played Beat Saber with the 5k+ the image felt a bit off. So I paused the game and looked at the same point with each eye while the other one was closed. On one screen I could see red backlight on the other screen there was no backlight.
The geometry and menus are perfectly fine, it’s just that the backlighting seems to be different. I know that a separate image with a different angle has to be rendered for each eye. It looks like the lights in the background are rendered incorrectly so they don’t overlap as they should. I haven’t read anything about this kind of glitch so far. Has anyone else noticed this yet?
Parallel projections fixes this. I’ve been meaning to post something to the dev, but hopefully someone has already. I like this a lot in wide FOV, so it would be nice to save some performance with parallel projections not enabled.
LOL I’ve played 6 hours of Beat Saber on my 5k and never even realized that parallel projections should be turned on. I did notice that the menu looked just a little off but while playing the game itself everything seemed ok. Guess now I’ll try it with PP on to see what it is really supposed to look like.
If I had to guess it makes the pimax require an extra step to convert the image from game rendered parallel screen ( - - ) into the ‘canted’ displays that it uses (^), because the game can’t do it natively.
You may not have been bothered, but for me it seemed like there was something off and I ended up closing each eye and noticing extra bloom or something in my right eye. If you look at the right side of the huge Beat Saber sign and close one eye, then switch, you’ll see what I mean. It sort of gets in the way when trying to focus on blocks and it kinda hurts my head.
How is your PC connected for sound? I use SP/DIF for mine which introduces a very slight delay in the audio, making it feel like the boxes are slightly out of sync with the music. For other games and videos my brain seems to be able to ignore the delay, but not in Beat Saber.
First thing I would try to figure out if it’s performance related is dial down every quality setting, maybe even lower the ss. If it runs better, your system probably just couldn’t handle it and you gotta find the sweet spot before performance begins to degrade. If it’s still of it’s a different issue.
