Want better FPS in VR but have tried all of the other settings tweaks everyone else suggests? This will work better. By replacing your openvr_api.dll file with the OpenFSR modded version downloaded from Github here you will improve the performance of the game increasing frame rates and reducing reprojection ratios.

Download the latest release “Image Upscaling via FSR or NIS for SteamVR games v2.1.1”


Navigate to your No Man’s Sky installation folder. Mine is located here:

  • D:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\No Man’s Sky

Rename openvr_api.dll to openvr_apiOLD.dll for backup purposes.

Drop the contents of into the folder.

You’re done. Enjoy the improved performance.

I love two things in life, games and sports. Although sports were my earliest interest, it was video games that got me completely addicted (in a good way). My first game was Crash Bandicoot (PS1) from the legendary studio Naughty Dog back in 1996. I turned my passion for gaming into a job back in 2019 when I transformed my geek blog (Re-actor) into the gaming website it is today.
