Oculus Tray Tool  
current version: 0.87.2

What is it?
In short; It’s a free application that helps you get the most out of your Rift. It is developed by me, ApollyonVR, with the support of the community for beta testing. Please note that this application is not an official piece software from Oculus, I am not affiliated with Oculus in any way. Any issues you
have with this application should be reported to me and not Oculus support. You can reach me here on the forums or by contacting me at ApollyonVR@gmail.com

Oculus Tray Tool (OTT) has many features that will hopefully help you get the very best VR experience. It has options that help you automatically switch audio and microphone to the Rift and back, handle the Oculus runtime service, voice commands, batch import Steam games (added to OTT by the awesome @headkaze over at http://headsoft.com.au), replace icons for your games and more.

It’s primary feature however, is the ability to create “Profiles” for you VR Games and apps.
Within these Profiles, you set how Asyncronous SpaceWarp (ASW) should act, increase the perceived resolution by using Supersampling and increase the CPU Priority of a given app to get the most juice out of your system for that specific application.
Once a Profile has been created for a game or app, OTT will detect when it is started and apply the
profile for it, without the need for taking your headset of.

If you want to have a peek at all the things OTT can do for you before installing the application, check the User Guide pdf. The latest version of this application will always be right below this intro, but the app also checks for available updates on startup.

Enjoy, have fun and please report any issues, suggestion or feature requests to me using the above mentioned methods. Oh, and feel free to buy me a coffee by using the PayPal button in-app. 🙂
 
The very nice people over at Guru3d.com have been kind enough to host some mirrors for the setups, so make sure to pay them a visit!

Note that for Microsoft Store apps, like MSFS2020, you need to gain access to the Windows Apps folder. After this, you can add a profile
for MSFS2020 where you manually browse this folder to find the installaion directory for MSFS2020, and in there you will find "FlightSimulator.exe"
and can add that to the profile. The below guide will show you how to gain access to the Windows Apps folder.

@Turnip579 @TomCgcmfc The reason for this is that Microsoft has locked down the permissions on the WindowsApp folder, where the Store apps are installed. You need to get proper permissions so that you can browse this folder and find the correct process to monitor. A fellow OTT user found this guide https://thegeekpage.com/cant-access-windowsapps-folder/ which helped him gain access to the folder. After this, you should be able to use the Browse button when creating a new profile and find FlightSimulator.exe. Try it out and see how it works.

Cheers!

Ya, less than 30Hz ASW with X Plane 11 is not very good for me either with my Rift cv1 or Quest 1 w/Link (smooth but way too many artifacts).  No way does WMR and/or SteamVR do as good a job as Oculus ASW 2.0 imho. 

I just tried Adaptive ASW with OTT and together with Adaptive GPU this seems to work even better.  Smooth with zero stutters (with the right SS settings of course, 1.5x with my cv1 and gtx1080ti).  Def a big improvement with dedicated Oculus PCVR headsets (Rift cv1 and S) and this allows me to increase world setting to max in places like NYC which I cannot do with my Vive Pro, and way better than using plugins like ovr or 3jFPS.

The main point is that you cannot do this with any WMR or SteamVR headsets, even with Revive.  Quest with Link will not work quite as well either imho.  Of course, Quest wireless with Virtual Desktop does not allow you to use Oculus ASW anyway btw.

Guys quick question, is there away to bypass the "allow this program to make changes to your PC" notification every time OTT starts? and with out turning that option completely off? so to allow OTT only?

No, with win10 it's all or nothing, lol!  Probably not a good idea to disable this imho.

Thats annoying as i have OTT open on start up and seeing that every time i would rather just uninstall OTT, thats a shame.  Typical windows not giving us more options.

That's because OTT needs to run in Administrative mode.  Personally I don't think this is a big deal.  I startup OTT beforehand, press OK, then startup the Oculus app and put my headset on.  Only adds a second or two to the process.  Up to you if you think that this is a hardship you want to avoid but you'll miss a lot of the benefits that OTT delivers imho.

Edit; I think you can also select OTT to startup with win10 without getting this message.  I don't use this since I don't always want to startup OTT every time since I also run a Vive Pro.  From the OTT manual;

Start with Windows: Check this box to have the application start when Windows starts.
This setting requires you to run the application as Administrator. This will add a scheduled task that runs OTT at logon. The task will run as administrator and suppress UAC prompts. If for some reason you cannot get OTT to start properly, and you have it set to Start with Windows and want to change that, go to Task Scheduler and find the Oculus Tray Tool task and disable it.

@MrBluePlaydoh Like @TomCgcmfc pointed out, you can bypass Windows UAC by using a scheduled task to start OTT with Windows. If you have already set it to Standard, simply uncheck and re-check Start with Windows, and then select the Scheduled Task option. This should bypass UAC and allow OTT to start with Windows without prompting. Once you've done that, you can create a shortcut to this task so that UAC doesn't prompt when you run it manually (using that shortcut)

On your desktop, right click and select New > Shortcut and paste

C:\Windows\System32\schtasks.exe /RUN /TN "Oculus Tray Tool"

into the text box. The default name of the shortcut will be "schtasks.exe" so perhaps change that to Oculus Tray Tool 😃

Cheers!

P.S. I'm currently writing code for a Windows Mixed Reality Tray Tool, so anyone with a WMR headset, like the HP Reverb G2, feel free to ping me and i'll get you something to test out. There will be a Reddit post soon (tm) with this as well.
