Samsung Odyssey + not working with FSX

Postby tjitah » Mon Jun 17, 2019 11:06 am

Hi there, I used FlyInside with FSX about a year ago with an Oculus Rift and it worked very well (was still on Windows 7 then). However, I didn't like the Oculus low-res pixelated view and stopped using it.

Did two things recently:
(1) got a Samsung Odyssey + which has much better resolution and
(2) Installed Windows 10, which I absolutely loath, but had to do it because Odyssey + uses WMR and it doesn't work in Windows 7.

The Odyssey + worked well so far in most of my other VR applications and I decided to install FSX today. FSX Acceleration installed without a hitch and running extremely well on my new PC (Windows 7 compatibility and running as admin) and I'm getting frame rates well over 200fps on ultra-wide monitor, so I thought it will run like a dream in VR and installed Flyinside v1.96_Vive_1000, which seems to be the latest version.

When running it for the first time, it asks to change a few settings like disable bloom etc and then restart. When restarting FlyInside, it starts WMR, then Steam VR (not sure why this is needed, but anyway) and then a FlyInside pop-up welcome screen asking what graphics adapter is used (GTX 1080 Ti). However, when clicking the "Start FlyInside FSX!" radio button, FSX logo opens up but within a second or two it crashes with a message "Microsoft Flight Simulator has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.....close program"

I therefore cannot even get to FSX welcome screen and have no idea how to troubleshoot this one. Any help will be appreciated.

It works on FSX Steam Edition without an issue......
Which is optimized for Windows 10....makes sense right?

Thanks blueshark, I was hoping to use FSX standalone, but I do have FSX Steam as well. Will try that when I get a chance.
