Ok so i bought this yesterday and before i could play it i had to go to work and my son decided to play it first.
 When i play it the game just starts without giving me the option to start a new game???
It starts me in an all white environment with a pistol in front of me and when i touch it i am in a market with a bad guy right in front and off we go!

 for the love of me i cannot figure out how to start a new game rather than continue from where my son left off :(

Sorry if i am asking a dumb question but i can't figure it out lmao

    You have to beat the game first to unlock the level select.

    That seem a bit daft. I am not the only person who uses my Oculus so multiple save slots would be nice :(
     think i may just reinstall it or even better, delete the save files?

    You can delete or rename the save game to reset progress... The file is in C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\LocalLow\SUPERHOT_Team\SUPERHOT\ and I believe the file name is VRsuper.hot or something like that (not in front of my gaming PC at the moment).

    nalex is correct. I just rename my file when friends come over and then rename it back when I wanna replay my favorite levels.

    I just moved my save to desktop and delete the new one anytime I need a fresh game. Would be great to have this option in game, the missions aren't even numbered once you've beaten it and no new game/restart option.

    I tried the method you mentioned and it replays the intro but then puts me back to where I left off, which is stuck in the game with nothing to do. (two floating hands, no gun, and the red guy) I tried uninstalling everything and after reinstalling and I'm having the same issue. Are there any other ways to reset this game completely?

    Erm, you are supposed to close your fist and punch him. You're not stuck, just have yet to use the correct action. :wink:

    You know you can punch people with your hands, right?

    Yeah, you're actually describing the opening of the first level. My guess is your son didn't get very far, and so it's sending you back to the original checkpoint.

    Punching is key, my friend ;) . Some of the most fun I've had in Superhot was when I did no-gun runs.

    I do agree that there should be a level select at least. Now that I beat it I get to do that, but it would have been appreciated before then.

    I think I may have posted elsewhere here, but... the first time I played, I tried punching very slowly. And when I made contact with the opponent, it did nothing.

    Basically, what you need to do is get yourself in position slowly and then release at least a moderately fast jab. You have to punch with a bit of force, not just "touch" them slowly.

    It took me several tries to figure that out - I wasn't sure what I was doing wrong at first.

    If the developers are listening... Please include a, er, red pyramid (?) in the level select screen that, when grabbed, gives you the option of resetting the game completely.  Thx!  :D

    Copy and paste solution expanded from @nalex66
    Either copy paste into Explorer, Win+R or just press Windows key:

    %userprofile%\AppData\LocalLow\SUPERHOT_Team\SUPERHOT_VR

    There is a progress reset disk in the end-game area, on the top right. Doesn't help the OP, but just FYI.

    and if you have a QUEST...?  There is no %userprofile%\AppData\LocalLow\SUPERHOT_Team\SUPERHOT_VR to delete that I know off.  Admittedly I'm not sure if I can access any file of that nature on it with the menu provided.
  • nalex66nalex66 Posts: 6,230 Volunteer Moderator
    In the Quest version, there is a disk marked “guest” that allows you to put a user into a new game. You have to beat the game to get to the end room with all the option disks (chapter select, speed modes, endless mode, guest mode, etc.).

    When you hold down all buttons (ABXY) on quest at the PiOS screen it will lead to an options menu where you can switch and delete files. As well as mess with options. Did it on complete accident

    I know this isn't relevant, but I just have to say that I love that you have to put on a VR headset in VR to enter a VRVR environment to play. This game is kick ass!

    No you hold A and X then goto the boot menu and then click on a new save
