Rift S touch controllers flickering again

AMacdonald
Level 4
For a day or two now, presumably since the latest update, my touch controllers have started flickering in-game, but not all the time. The Oculus menu is fine but as soon as Home loads, one or other of the touch controllers will start flickering and vibrating at a fairly constant rate. It usually seems to be the right controller but it sometimes switches to the left one. I haven't been able to work out what provokes it to switch over. When it flickers, the background is visible through the controller. I've tried new batteries and tried removing them for a few minutes. When I had this problem a couple of months ago I fixed it by opting into the beta channel but I guess the poor code has caught up with me. Opting in and out of the beta channel makes no difference, nor does a full uninstall/reinstall. Again, the oculus menu is fine and the hands are visible. It's only when Home (or almost any game - Google Earth VR is fine for some reason) loads that the problems become apparent.

I see I'm not totally alone but has anyone identified a solution?

This downgrade 'hack' has literally saved Oculus from loosing me as a customer! They should thank those who have helped us get back up and running!



watch out for signs of an abuser in your relationships, they often manipulate you into believing it's worth staying when you should still leave regardless...

Reporting my Touch controllers rapidly spinning, flickering, reappearing, requiring multiple clicks to initiate.

No update?  No fix?  No rollback?  Our brand new $400 VR kits are useless and completely inoperable over the holiday weekend?  What, do they want us to go outside and get Coronavirus or something?


Yo! opt into the PTC in settings. they fixed it. 400$ paperweight no more

what a fucking waste of 400 dollars, I've had it for 6 months, and there hasn't been a time where everything fucking worked. I got a new one and it still has the same problematic bullshit. The entertainment isn't worth it if the software seems like it's been made by monkeys with thumbs up their asses.
Edit: Sorry for the long rant but I'm tired and done with this trial and error garbage.

I got my VR to finally work today. I was about to play Alyx as my first VR experience and then my controllers start to flicker...
Great first experience..
