Before I start, I want to preface this with some venting about the software in general. Over the course of my time using the Rift-S, I have found that it's controls are fluid and responsive, that it's visuals are, while not on par with the Vive perhaps, more than adequate, and that all in all it's a good piece of hardware. Yet time and time again, I have been frustrated and baffled by the dumpster fire of software that is the Oculus VR Runtime service. As of today, my count for the number of times I've had to repair/reinstall it is up to 4. Beyond that, it meddles with every single SteamVR game I play, and at times seems like it's actively trying to sabotage my experience. This also has nothing to do with my setup, as according to Oculus's own "VR-Ready Test" my computer should be able to handle all of this easily. In short, I would love nothing more than to simply not use the OVR App at all, and if anyone knows a workaround for me to just use SteamVR instead, I would love to hear it.
Failing that, here is my current problem. Currently, every time I try to start OVR, it starts up fine and seems to be working. However, around five seconds after I put on the headset, the screen freezes and OVR crashes and then restarts with the Headset blacked out. Any and all help is appreciated, although help in just not using OVR would be even more appreciated.
