Looking for the best graphics settings to play RaceRoom in VR?
As you can imagine, having the proper VR settings can make a pretty big difference to your overall VR experience as well as lap time performance.
Not only will you be able to be more precise on your driving but you’ll so make less mistakes thanks to the added immersion.
In order to find the best VR settings for RaceRoom, you’ll want to make sure that you’re running the latest version of the game as well as have a powerful enough graphics card.
Once you’ve done that, you can begin tweaking the in-game settings to find what works best for you.
Generally speaking, you’ll want to start by reducing to zero (or off) some minor settings like motion smoothing or supersampling filtering.
That’s because they’ll help you keep the FPS as high as possible without sacrificing too much in terms of image quality.
Once you’re happy with those settings, you can move on to the more advanced options like rendering quality, field of view, and more.
Of course, every player is different so it’s ultimately up to you to experiment with the settings and find what works best for you.
So without further ado let’s dive into them.
