Oculus is gatecrashing my DCS sessions!


Recommended Posts

I have a G2 and a quest 2 but only use the G2 for DCS (much better)... I also have Skatezilla's DCS utility installed.  

I noticed that when I launch DCS (either through DCS utility or just directly through the DCS desktop icon) it opens steamVR (normal) but also the oculus app...which is not needed since I use the G2.  

Also noticed that in Skatezilla's utility, under application settings and then VR it has both steamVR and Oculus there and Oculus has a ticked box next to it but SteamVR's box is unticked and I cannot untick or tick any of them.

 

Someone knows how I can prevent this oculus app from launching automatically with DCS?

Go to the Oculus shortcut >  Properties > Compatibility Tab > Tick the "Compatibility Mode" and "Run this program as an administrator" boxes and hey presto. 

 

Saw this in another thread so all kudos goes to them.

I just went into services and set the Oculus runtime to manual rather than auto.

Took care of it for me. This way none of the Oculus services are running unless I manually launch them.

Still have my Rift S and may use it from time to time, so far I haven't though. Left a couple Oculus games on my drive I may go back to finish at some point.

Dburne, You could use revive to play
Oculus games with the g2.
I use it with the index and it is perfect.
i also configured the service as you said (to start manually) but then I use oculus tray tool setup in a way that when it starts (as I launch it) it starts also the
Oculus service and stops it when I close OTT.
So if you want to get rid of your Rift S this way you won’t lose oculus games.

Yeah good point, I have known about Revive and kept it in the back of my mind.

I may do just that. Right now my flight sims are occupying almost all my time.
