Hmm... small updates. 😕

Critical bug of v27: Dash button don't work properly.

It fixed the horrible flicker we had in Flight Simulator 2020 in VR and this is a great move! 🙂

I'm getting so tired of these **bleep**ty updates and i have 2 quest 2 both with problems,  i must be very unlucky or are most just affected


I hope the competition comes out now



Level 3

So for those of us using Quests with Link and having problems, if you browse to the Oculus Troubleshooting FAQ, it does actually say:


> I'm on the Public Test Channel (PTC) and Oculus Link isn't working.

If you've opted in to PTC using the PC software, Oculus Link will not work properly over the next few releases. Please disable PTC access if you intend to utilise Oculus Link.

Please review our official software release notes for any future updates.


So assuming this is there deliberately to refer to this current crop of problems and isn't just coincidentally still there from a previous time the PTC broke link, they have at least acknowledged there is a problem with Link in this build... kinda?


Would be nice to actually see this in the release notes though, lads and lasses at FB Reality. We can't provide you with informed or useful feedback for the public test builds unless you actually publish useful changelogs or at the very least make it clear when there are known major regressions in basic features.

Level 7

The Oculus button does not always work in the Rift home. But datarate is back at the old level I had with v23.

Level 2

Nice update now hard crashing my PC! OVRservice causing my pc to shut down instantly! Fix it please.

same here. win 10 20H2 version. my pc crashes and restarting itself while playing msfs 2020.

I have encountered this in the main branch as well. The home button stopped bringing up the oculus pause screen, this would be like if Nintendo switch's home button stopped working. After a PC restart the issue was resolved.
