I completely reinstalled Windows 10. I forced all available OS updates and installed all of the latest drivers for hardware. I installed beta versions of Steam and Steam VR. I installed Windows Mixed Reality on Steam and then followed this guide:

Everything is smooth as butter now and I learned a lot. Thanks for all the help!

I don't own a PS4, but I'm sure others will appreciate your input there.

That's too bad, the physics engine is so far above everything mentioned in this thread that it's worth buying a dedicated console and TV set-up for it.

Most of the games these days put visuals far ahead of movement physics because that's what sells to kids.

Haha, that's a funny one. It's a decent game but a league below all those games in terms of simulation and realism, and the best looking one. So it's exact opposite of what you said.

LOL.....Is that why professionals F1 drivers play sims like iRacing and Assetto Corsa?

I recommend you play these games side by side, one after the other, and I feel like your viewpoint will change.

You sound like you're speaking for all of them. Anything you know about F1 is presented that way. Last time I was a Laguna Seca it was GT on display, not AC. And a lot of times it has to do with which tracks are presented.

And like above, drive them side by side, one right after the other. The physics engine in GT blows AC away. It's true that GT takes some tweaking, it's not fantastic right out of the box, but the overall movement of the car is superior to AC.

It also depends on what you're racing on. I personally don't own a wheel set-up, but my friends Fanatec system shows the differences pretty easily.

I've played them for hundreds of hours, but you apparently didn't. There are many good things in GT Sport, but no one in their right mind would suggest that it's on the same level in terms of physics and realism. To claim it's even better is laughable.

I think you have me on hundreds of hours.

I much prefer GT Sport.

Preference is subjective. As I said, GT Sport has a lot of good things going for it, like visuals (good HDR implementation), choice of cars, and public multiplayer with full lobbies, safety ratings and regular races. It'a probably best for casual online racing, miles better than AC or PC2, where multiplayer can be a mayhem. It however suffers badly from atrocious AI in single player races, weak/nonexistent weather/surface simulation and has very poor track selection, with a lot of made up circuits. Physics is ok, good enough for something that isn't a hardcore sim like iRacing.

You can have a lot of fun with that game, and it's a must buy for someone with a PS4, who's into racing, but it sounds like you don't really have enough experience to judge them. You don't even own a wheel.... wtf

I don't own a wheel set-up, meaning an entire rig. I have a Thrustmaster, but using the Fanatec is a whole different level, so I usually just play at my friend's house.
