  • It was never cross-buy. The publisher decided that the amount of rewriting required for Quest justified calling it a unique product. Wasn't happy about that, but as you said there are other similar examples. It has not reverted from cross-buy.
  • I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Oculus still doesn't not have a family friendly solution. Here are the issues you will encounter. 1. Changing from one account to another requires a complete wipe of the headset and re-downloading of any app…
  • Your hardware gets linked to your account when you run a set up. But if someone else registers it, it will become immediately connected to that new account and if I am not mistaken, it removes it from your account. If you are concerned about it be…

Yes, for Beat Saber and the majority of multi-player games you will need two accounts and each account will need to purchase a copy of the game.  Someday they may have a system with family accounts and sharing, etc. but not yet. Th…
  • Yes, you can have multiple headsets on one account. However, there can potentially be certain problems. If an app has implemented cloud saves (like Phantom Covert Ops), even though each person has a headset, they will will both still be sharing the …
  • I wonder if they based the design off of user statistics. What percentage of people actually use their headset for more than two hours at a given time? And if you are using link, it sounds like it might be possible to get more like four hours or mor…
  • I'm sure everyone is different. But I also experienced the weird feeling that I was still in VR at first, and one of the first games I played was Lone Echo. Moving in 6 degrees made me feel very strange, which was my first time experiencing motion s…

I certainly can do that. But my point is that I would really like a complete product from the start without having to mod it. Or at least well designed upgrades and add-ons (the Elite Strap is an example of this done well.) I doubt…
  • I saw someone with the Bionix PSVR headphones on a Quest 2 and they looked really good, but there was still the wires behind the head. I think that's what I'm hoping for; headphones that clip on the head strap but with a cable the exact length.
  • I don't have a solution for the age issue, but I will try to help with another issue here. A small number of games can be used by headsets logged into the same headset. For example, Half + Half, Orbus Reborn, Rec Room. This is because they have you …

Yes, but one pair is a regular headphone, so you you have to put them on over and after you put on the headset and the other is the same as what I have with just a shorter cable. I don't know what was wrong with having headphone ja…

I sounds like you are just not familiar with a number of things. That doesn't mean anything is a dumpster fire. Every major Beat Saber update breaks BMBF. None of us who updated to the multiplayer version can use our custom songs u…
  • FYI, definitely does not work for Link. The app just crashes.
  • This is a more nuanced issue than many people want to make it.  One issue is that when you are not physically near someone, there is a reduction in inhibition, meaning people say and do things in cyberspace that they would never do if someone was t…
  • Yes. I upgraded my Quest 1 and Quest 2 so my songs are not available, but if I had not upgraded it would be working. So, if you can find a previous installer it will work with the current BMBF. They usually update quickly, so I'm OK not having custo…
  • It's not a Quest 1 vs Quest 2 issue. It's because of the multiplayer update. We just have to wait until they update BMBF.
  • Right now, only the Home Environment, Explore, Store, Browser and Oculus TV are 90Hz, I don't believe any games are able to run at 90Hz because there is an issue with the guardian causing problems. So none of the games are allowed to run at 90Hz.
  • You need to do some research on games before you purchase them. Many games are cross-buy, meaning if you buy the Rift version you get the Quest version. However, some games require an extensive re-write to port them the Quest. When companies spend…

The bad news is that I'm almost certain that they will be disabling your account, not your headset. So even if you get a competitor's product and use Revive, you won't be able to use your purchased games after the deadline. And you…
  • I have been using the Oculus Tray Tool to set the quality for the link. Does anyone know if the built in feature is better or worse than the OTT?
  • So, I went ahead and logged in with Facebook and when I launched the Oculus App it started just like normal. Nothing seems any different. However, I did already have the accounts linked, so there's that. The only difference that I can see is that no…
  • Without all the details of your laptop it is hard to say. I would guess that a laptop with an RTX card would most likely be able to do VR. But you should run the SteamVR Performance test in Steam and see what the report says. This is the most sure w…
  • I have loved my Quest, but it was a first generation product and suffers from the typical issues that come with the first generation. I can't remember spending more time and effort trying to fix a products flaws than I did with my Quest. From variou…

 I feel bad that you hare having issues. However, occasionally it needs to be pointed out that there is a difference between a specific error happening on someone's specific unit and hardware and a statement that X breaks Y.  If wh…

 Welcome to the forum. Just so you know, this is a forum of other Oculus users, it is not an Oculus support tool. There are occasionally some Oculus employees who show up here, but posting here will not get their attention. Here is …
  • If I were you, I wouldn't merge accounts until you are forced to. I think that Facebook will be eventually prevented for forcing us. So, you should just link your Oculus account to Facebook. If they force you to merge when you setup, then you won't …
  • To make sure that you don't have any issues, you should make sure that you have your Oculus account linked with a Facebook account that is not likely to have any issues. You have 2 Facebook accounts. If one is using your actual name, it should be …
  • I would have liked the battery version, but you can't run Link and have the battery connected at the same time. You can plug it in and it will charge both the headset and the battery simultaneously, but does not allow using link while the battery is…
