Hi,

 

VR user here. I use this awesome program since ever. Try it.

You can start in VR or in 2D in one click. I use it a lot to edit my missions in 2D and then fly in VR.

What fagulha said! Download the Utility. When I downloaded it, it took me a few days to get it working the way I wanted, so there might be some trial and error but it’s a must for anyone using VR!

If you have DCS set to use VR in the DCS settings, it will always try to use VR, unless you take steps for it not to.

 

I principally use the Oculus Tray Tool (OTT) to start the Oculus services. If I don't run OTT and consequently the Oculus services are not running, and I start DCS, it looks for Oculus home to be running, but doesn't find it, because I didn't start OTT and the Oculus services, and DCS then starts SteamVR.

 

If I want to run DCS without VR, exactly as OP stated to do mission editing, or sometimes to film videos in better than VR quality, I use a link file pointing to ""C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World OpenBeta\bin\DCS.exe" "--force_disable_VR"". This skips updating DCS and trying to start VR. Works perfectly every time. Just create a link on your desktop using the quote as the target and the 'bin' folder as the 'start-in' target.

The DCS GUI Utility by Skatezilla does a lot more than just make it a simple button choice to go VR or Pancake. 

 

You may not NEED all of its functionality but I have found myself using parts of it I never dreamed of using. For example, rolling back your DCS install to a previous version. Handy sometimes and very easy using the utility.

It's a question of what you actually need, and what is easier to implement and manage.
