Lower your game graphics settings

This is the first thing you can try – lower your No Man Sky graphics settings and then see if this can reduce your lag. The following changes are what we recommend you trying specifically:

  • Disable Light Shafts
  • Terrain Tessellation Settings

These can significantly increase your frame rate and fix your in-game NMS VR lagging or stutter issues. But if not, don’t worry, there are other effective ways for you to try!

Edit the thread settings of the game

You can also edit the thread settings of the No Man Sky to optimize how the game use your CPU processors, so you can fix the No Man Sky VR lagging issues. Here is how:

Step 1: Press the CTRL, SHIFT, and ESC keys at the same time to open Task Manager. Then select the Performance tab and check your logical processor number.

Step 2: Go to your where your game is installed (on your Steam game library, right click No Man Sky and select Manage > Browse local files).

Step 3: Open Binaries and the SETTINGS.

Step 4: Open TKGRAPHICSSETTINGS.MXML with a text editor (create a backup before doing this in case anything goes wrong)

Step 5: Set the value of “NumHighThreads” to be 1 less than your logical processor number, and the “NumLowThreads”. For example, if your logical processor number is 8, then the settings should look like:

<Property name="NumHighThreads" value="3" />
<Property name="NumLowThreads" value="1" />

Step 6: Save your changes and launch your game to see if this works for you.
