Oculus Update (1.22) Just Messed Up My 3rd Party Games (with fix)

Just updated Oculus software and my non-Oculus games lost their titles and the non-asset manifest .json files for each game disappeared.


Luckily I kept a back-up and copied them back in, but that didn't bring the titles back.


Luckily (again), removing them from my Oculus library, using the option within Home and then restoring them using the excellent Oculus Tray Tool, brought them back. Hope this helps anyone with the same problem.

    I read some comments on Reddit about similar problems. I was prepared to deal with it as I update to 1.22, but all my third-party apps retained their proper names (some of which had been edited by me), as well as the custom icons which I had added for them.

    Mmm interesting, thanks @nalex66, I wounder what the difference is. It can't be another DPI thing. Do you have your Steam games and Oculus games installed on the same drive?

    Come to think of it, the third-party game that wasn't affected was Prepar3D, which is on my F drive, the games that were affected were on my D. Oculus games also on D.

    I have all my VR games (both Oculus and Steam) on my E: drive. Incidentally, I also have the Oculus app installed there (not in Program Files). I believe they changed that at some point and made it install in C:\Program Files, but I haven't done a full re-install since 1.3, and back then you could install it on whatever drive you wanted.

    Ok I think it may be a drive thing then. Either it's because my Oculus app is in C, or its because the update has an issue with games on D... or a combination of both!
