DCS World 2.5 3D Fix W.I.P

Hey Guys,

First OFf this fix is Largly based of Lefuneste's work for DCS 1.5/2.2 fix he did some time ago..

Recently DCS released its long awaited 2.5 Open Beta patch. Well I got it first day and noticed many problems, Especially in 3D..

So I put together this little fix mainly based on a lot of Lefuneste Fix back a while ago.. Now some things are still broke I am currently trying to get the band in the sky fixed but it is not too bad currently..

Main thing is to set the correct settings.. I will highlight the most important the rest you can set to what your CPU & GPU Can handle..

First things first if your  DCS 2.5 does not look like the above Picture please delete the following folder especially if you use the Open Beta and updated using 2.2, 1.5:

x:Users/Your User Name/Saved Games/DCS.Openbeta..

Then just reset your Graphics setting and set the following Options:

1. Shadows= FLAT (best Compromise for now)
2.Deffered shading- ON - to get the uber effects..
3. Terrain Object Shadow- OFF ( this is MOST Important to have off)

EDIT: IF, you Want Shadows, turn OFF Deferred shading and turn ON shadows to high and terrain shadows ON.. The Graphics are not as good with Deferred shading OFF tho.. YMMV!!!

Also for some reason this game does NOT run in "FULLSCREEN" by Default,, while it may look Fullscreen it is Actually running a "Borderless FullScreen" Once in the 3D world hit "LEFTALT + ENTER" to go to FULLSCREEN so 3D can kick in..

Now I been up all night hashing this out and for now this is the best as it is going to get.. Now if your PC can handle it keep Deffered shading ON..

Now for the fix and this is Largely Based of Lufeneste's Work for 1.5/2.0.. I just added a few thing I thought it needed and some things are still broke but not too bad..

I 7-Zipped the folder there is a DCS Profile in there you will need to add with NVidia Inspector.. So don't forget to delete the Digital Combat Black shark Profile that has DCS.exe associated with it.. Then import the DCS.nip file with Inspector..

There is a Hot Key for the UI/Labels which is Left Arrow key. the Main menu will be in Stereo but has two settings 1 to read the main menus and chat windows and the other setting is for the Labels to go to depth..

Hopefully this will be an improvement on what it was before as the Shadows are really broke.

So without further ado here is the fix:


DCS 2.5 .7z

If you need help or would like to see something added to this Guide Please leave a comment in the comment section..

Thank you to Lefuneste and all themodders that make 3D Migoto Possible..
Enjoy The_Nephilim


  1. There should be some mention of the game's name and screenshots, so ppl know what it's about if they did miss prev. fixes. It's a "free-to-play digital battlefield game and simulation environment." - 120GB for recommended systems? VR Support, yet it needs a 3D Fix? Anyway, thanks for that, may try it out some time.

  2. the games name is DCS World I added World.. screenshot also added.. VR and 3D vision are 2 different things.. 3D vision usually need a Migoto fix but VR Does not.. probally why this technology will die soon enough but it is still cool..

  3. the cool thing is that in airplanes simulators many users have TrackIR systems to easily move the character in the cockpit in a 6-axis views system. To use that and have 3D the only way is 3DVision, in addition you have much higher resolution and clearness of image using a monitor instead of a pixelled Oculus screen. And at the end, many people suffer motion sickness using VR so 3Dvision is the only way to avoid this, to continue playing the simulator in the traditional and relaxing way but without give up about 3D effect.

  4. Super génial merci !!!


  5. y a t il le moyen de cliquer le cockpit ?


  6. Is there a way to click the cockpit?
