Thanks for the @vr_marco from his post, which gave me the idea.
Thanks for the @TaintFist who helped make the original batch

Thanks for the @LZoltowski who made the self elevating, improved batch file without asking

Thanks for the @TheRealIronWolf who also made alternative version of the improved batch

Also thanks to the @ChristianXXX who tested the functionality of the workaround on iRacing an told it helped with the Dash belt problem in it, before he moved to use Odyssey πŸ˜‰ .


Please provide feedback on this thread or on the 1.31 thread or directly to me with pm, if you tested this also on non-SteamVR game starting the VR-game directly and ran the batch and the game/app worked without SteamVR directly (i.e with Elite Dangerous from Frontiers online shop)!?

rFactor, works
iRacing doesn't work
Elite Dangerous (from Frontier's online shop) doesn't work
SkyrimVR (SteamVR) works
Assetto Corsa (SteamVR, loaded directly from desktop shortcut) didn't work HOWEVER, @WiLLuMPJuH posted:"Select within AC / Content Manager ( Setup - Video ) not "Oculus Rift" but "OpenVR" instead to play it in SteamVR. " @svinnich got AC to run through SteamVR with the batch
Virtual Desktop (SteamVR, loaded directly from desktop shortcut) worked at least for me
Raceroom, works

You're better off doing things the other way around tbh. You'll get better performance with games bought from Steam if you use the Open OVR hack to stop SteamVR from launching.

I want 2 different operating systems as they are without other starting anything automatically when i don't want to. Anyway, this method is solution for the black HMD screens (at least with SteamVR), when oculusclient.exe is being blocked from automatically started and when HMD is put on.

Oh and @snowdog i already informed ApollyonVR about the OpenCompositor hack, if you're referring to that, maybe we could get that as a addon on OTT!

Yup, I forgot what the new name was lol

I'm going to be using it when I'm able to play Skyrim VR again, and will also use it for Fallout 4 VR too due to the extra performance that you get running the games without crappy SteamVR. I've been waiting for a way to play games without SteamVR running for nearly 2 years, it's a clusterfuck for Rift owners and always has been.

I've hated the way these two systems "fight" with each other when they're both on, it's a nuisance which i don't want at all, even the possibility. That's why i want the admin trick to be working. Of course, if the opencompositor gets more support from developers, it would be great to use the more graphic wise system only while playing SteamVR games without the actual SteamVR, which is Oculus!  But atm, even YoutubeVR isn't in Oculus Rifts store even when it has full support for Oculus Rift in SteamVR, which is a bit odd.
