HOW TO RUN STEAM VR GAMES IN STEAM VR NOT OCULUS

This is a brief tutorial on how to launch games in steam vr and not oculus when oculus forces a game to open in oculus instead of steam vr... pretty simple. This causes issues because you cant use stuff like OVR for streaming in oculus. Here is what you do

1: Find games .Exe files
-right click
-properties
-compatibility
- (check box) run compatibility mode for (windows 7)
- (check box) run this program as administrator

2: Go to game library in steam
- right click game
- properties
- General
- (launch options)
- Write "-openvr"

3: Open oculus software

4: Launch steam VR (not game just steam VR by itself)

5: Launch game from vitual desktop (oculus one or steam vr version)

6: Allow game to launch

7: Profit 💲💲💲

 

I cant promise this will work for sure, but it has worked for me 🤷‍:female_sign:

Remember guys the "-" in "-openvr" is very important
