A bit different, but VR related. Oculus plays foul on me since yesterday. I posted this in the general steam forum. The Oculus home forum seems to be a lost cause. ----- I have never bought a game via Oculus store, only use two free demos of theirs. Their software app and interface thus stays off most of the time, since Oculus is a tracking software and Oculus refuses to >fully< document what kind of data they collect from people's systems and online interctions. I have VR games bought via Steam exclusively. I used to launch them via desktop icons, or from the Steam interface. Yesterday morning i was greeted with the note that Oculus needs me to update my nvidia driver from 388.31 - to 388.31. Well, I took the opportunity to indeed update to not the same version as before, but a newer one. The headset did not work anymore due to the Oculus app not working without a driver "update" of my graphics card. So I deinstalled the driver and rebooted, installed 411.70 (that is the second-newest WHQL driver currently, to avoid the latest software added for the now pulled Windows-10 1809 messup I did not use the newer 417.xx), and was rewarded with an unwanted though apparently functioning newly designed Oculus interface. However, since then I cannot launchVR games via desktop icons and Steam interface anymore. The game may start, but only on the monitor - the headset stays dark, maybe an accoustic jingle gets played during game launching in the headsets earspeakers, that is all. However, when launching these steam-bought games via the Oculus library interface, the games work fine and the headset now springs to life. Before, it was possible to play steam-VR-games without the Oculus app running. Now it must run all the time - I assume to force people using the Oculus environment more, and to force them to accept that it can track and scan your doing and system all the time (because that is what it indeed does). I also need to hassle around with the VR controllers even for games that do not use them. Racing sims, for example. I used to launch Raceroom or Assetto corsa via mousclick on my desktop icons. Now I need to do it in that VR interface Oculus forces me to use. For Assetto corsa, it would not be needed. I hate it.
