Oculus Link No Man's Sky - no man's VR :(

Hi all,

I have Oculus Link up and running on my PC. Framerates are good although I do get quite frequent crashes (which I'm willing to tolerate, this being a beta and all). However, I simply can't get NMS to start in VR from Steam. Other games start up (and run) fine (Elite, Euro Truck 2) but NMS runs only in desktop, even though I choose SteamVR from the start-up options. In the headset I get a completely black screen.

I'm running a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, all up to date, and using an Anker cable.

Any advice/insights appreciated.

Thanks!

    Have you tried launching from within SteamVR Home? I find that to be the most reliable way to start SteamVR games. With the Oculus app already running, I click the VR button on the Steam desktop app, then put on the headset and use the menu in the SteamVR Home environment to launch the game.

    Ah, OK - thanks for the suggestion. I _think_ I’ve tried that but I’ll have another look...

    I'm having the same issue and launching from SteamVR is not helping. It just hangs on the Start splash (even though the game opens on my desktop)

    Other games work fine in SteamVR using the link.
