    It's simple. The mod fsr you just need to replace the original openvr_api.dll in the x64 folder to the downloaded + the config file (openvr_mod.cfg).

    The vrperfkit just copy the dxgi.dll on the root folder (same level as the .exe) with the config file (vrperfkit.yml)

    Just like the readme says...Place the files "dxgi.dll" and "vrperfkit.yml" next to your "AMS2.exe".
    Edit the file "vrperfkit.yml" to your likes.
    Start the game ;)

    P.S:
    If you have previously installed the older "openvr_fsr" mod please replace the modded "openvr_api.dll" with your original .dll first.

    Do you run it with WMR? It`s not working for me.

    Are we sure it's working? I restored the default openvr dll, copied the new files to AMS root and updated ymal file with settings plus enabled DEBUG and i see no results or log file. The game runs but no settings are being applied... I tried copying the files to the x64 folder just to test further and same results. There are no graphic settings changes required, correct?

    Index/SteamVR user here...

    Unlike @Mike Evans, I'm also failing to get holgers work working at the moment... Here's what I've tried
    - Have copied the two files to AMS2 directory (even tried the x86 .dll just in case...)
    - deleted the FSR modified openvr_api.dl file and then verified integrity on steam which restored originally game file
    - tried both beta and normal steamVR and Windows Reality for Steam
    - tried switching to Steam OpenXR runtime vs. WMR.

    Still no joy..... confused....

    Yup, I just re-installed steamVR (WMR and even AMS2!) just in case, but no joy.... hmm...

    Yeah, that's the old version (and I have that working) - but I didn't like the FSR upscaling artefacts.

    Mike has the new version working with a very similar spec. so I'm trying to diagnose why it's just not loading on mine.

    I had a very weird thing last night.
    I tried the FSR first and it didn't work.
    Then I tried the NIS, changing in the vrperfkit.yml file, and then it worked, but the sharpness at 0.9 is way too much for me, so I quit the game, lowered the sharpness in the file, restarted the game, and now it doesn't work anymore.
    I don't know what to do anymore.

    I use a PImax 8KX with SteamVR.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I tried a bunch of different settings with no success :(

    We got an open ticket on github but unless we help the dev who owns the dll i dont see much help coming our way sadly

    when looking at the second file. I see that you changed fsr into nit. Maybe I’m wrong, but dont you have to change the false under fixedfoveated:
    From false to true? Because that is the nit path right?

    Hey DutchFireMan
    I changed from FSR to NIS to change the upscaling algorithm to NVIDIA's. Regarless of the setting, the mod isn't loading as no hot keys work or log file is created.
    Will keep trying to diagnose!

    AMS 2 does not hook on the dxgi.dll. it did also not worked for reshade. It must have been named opengl32.dll for it to work or on newer versions dinput8.dll.

    But i doubt that holger has already included different dll hook and passed them to the original dll. So for now i suggest you to give use the asiloader to hook on dinput8.dll and rename the new perf toolkit dll (dgxi.dll) from holger to vrperfkit.asi and place it besides the asiloader dll.
    GitHub - ThirteenAG/Ultimate-ASI-Loader: ASI Loader is the tool that loads custom libraries with the file extension .asi into any game process.

    The asiloader will sideload all *.asi files it finds and loads it up.

    Wow finally the answer. TY! Although the mod is loading now it seems the hooks or whatever might be failing. I'll check with dev on this assuming the issue is on his end? I see it in his log file...

    from log:

    I can't agree with that 100%.
    AMS2 hooks the "dxgi.dll" file 100% when the game is started via the oculus runtime.
    If you use a Rift/s or Oculus Quest headset, AMS2 will not start via the OpenVR (SteamVR) runtime, but via the Oculus runtime. Exactly then the "dxgi.dll" is used and it works. Why the whole thing does not work via OpenVR (SteamVR) is a mystery to me. But as you can see in the logfile of me, it works wonderfully with "dxgi.dll" and an Oculus headset.

    Yep. Working for me too.
    HP Reverb G2, RTX 3090 and my log is showing it working and it's making a huge difference. I'm using nis for scaling.
    I don't know why it's working, @Rob Davies has the same specs as me and it's not for him.

    Doesn't really work for me either. (Vive Pro SteamVR). I get no log generated.

    However, strangely enough, if I enable the "AMS2 spotter" mod (which is a modified dbghelp.dll), then I get the proper log generated but the hooks outlined in the log posted above don't seem to happen (maybe the AMS2 spotter overrides them). None of the shortcut keys do anything either in that case and I dont see a blind bit of difference in my display so net result is.. it doesn't work for me.

    Works perfectly fine in DCS.

    EDIT: Retrolux's method outlined above works perfectly.. This does disable the spotter mod radar view (even though you still hear the voice) if thats of any concern to anyone. For some reason though, I cannot get the hotkeys to work, but the initial settings definately are kicking in.

    Which "AMS2 Spotter" Mod you are using? Do you have an URL to this mod?
