Well, why do we need this update? We have Rift S and Why should we be updated?
Let's already split the oculus program so that we do not download updates that are constantly useless to us !!! (((((((((((((((((((((((((((( (((((((((((((

I blocked your updates! I stay on v.16
just add in C:\Program Files\Oculus\
two empty txt files without .txt (rename and delete it)
Staging
tmp
With this files oculus software can't update automatically !!!

Dear Oculus, If it ain't broke, don't fix it, please.

did they bother to check and make sure certain games work? i could not play pavlov at all on the ptc 17 and had to revert to version 16. I  haven't tried playing it with the non ptc version. But  I don't have high hopes

At this point i think most people would say don't update and just stay in the version you're in, because knowing Oculus the problem might still be there.

Does this really work?  I added the tmp file (removed .txt), but windows won't let me add Staging as "there is already a folder with that name" even though its a file I'm adding and not a folder.

Ya, I've pretty well given up using my Rift cv1 with x plane 11 because it's been pretty buggy since Oculus v13.  I'm now just using my Vive Pro for all my flight/racing sims.  All my sims look better with my Vive Pro anyway.

Strange but when I run xp11 with my Quest, wireless with Virtual Desktop it runs fine and shutdown works properly as well.  I think that this is because it launches with SteamVR (like my Vive Pro).  Still, looks much better with my Vive Pro though.

Quest wired with Link (official link cable) has the same issues as my Rift cv1.  So, def an Oculus software related issue imho.  Hopefully Oculus will eventually sort this out.  Whatever changes they made going from v12 to v13 caused this so you would think that they could see what code changes may have caused this.
