Increase the Link resolution with debug tool

I ran into this on YouTube and it's making a bigger difference than using super sampling in the Quest. I need to retest SS again with the new setting.

How are you super sampling inside the Quest? I thought Oculus disabled those mods.

 Oculus disabled mods for Quest? I don't think so, possibly for the Beat Sabre customization because of copy write infringement.. 
 This is just changing a value in the PC Oculus software using their debugging tool. 
Super Sampling is not disabled either, use Oculus tray tool for Oculus games and Steam VR settings for SS in their apps. SS is more apparent in apps that really need them here like IL2.. Doesn't really look so good without SS @ 2.0
  To the best of my understanding, the value change in the debug tool increases the resolution that the image is being encoded and streamed to Quest, I would think that if an app doesn't support that resolution it would be the same as SS.

Not the one done on the PC side.
I thought you were talking about this SS:

 I believe they are referring to using PC based SS for streaming via Alt VR. from PC. I was streaming to my Quest with Rift Cat and virtual desktop before the link cable came out. I haven't had a chance to test out the effects of SS in a wi-fi streaming scenario yet.

No, it was all done by the Quest.
I used it for some time then it stopped working.

 Well if you find it let me know.

Ok, just tried it and actually the technique in the link I posted is working.
I am going to see what difference it makes with link and PC games compared to PC SS.

 I would think that SS would need to be sampled from the source to be most effective. Since they're independent from each other try using both. at the same time.
 Is that app on sidequest?  

Hmm I found this.  Downloading the zip now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qh1NfLwNMaQ

Indeed "encode resolution width" at 3268 does make a big difference, but you still need SS, x2 is great.
The hardware display of the Quest is much better than people think.
