For the past month I continue to have issues with downloading past titles. I have many great games I would like to play that state "Sorry we can't install ____ Please visit Oculus Support. I have done fresh installs, installed on a separate computer. Reset my network. Nothing more I can do on my end. I also completed past support tickets submitting logs with no resolution.
Anyone else going through this? I hope Meta updates the storefront and fixes these issues. Several hundred paid purchases since 2016 and most do not download. The storefront also has an issue where you are unable to download past titles (at least for me). It says get in text but no button to obtain, and no button on the actual page to purchase or download. Thank you. I am wondering if others are experiencing the same. I hate to make additional purchases and have them abandoned in the future with no ability to download. I will have to look towards other platforms if this isn't resolved.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks! You know how it goes when your computer isn't working, so you call IT and suddenly it starts working again before they actually do anything... I'm happy to take the credit of coincidence though 🙂
There are still plenty of games they're working on getting back up and running, but I'll be in touch as soon as I get an "All clear!"
Thanks @Oculus_RyanS. Your periodic updates throughout this were our only official feedback that progress was being made, which helped with the frustration.
I think everyone, including Oculus themselves agree that 10+ days was far too long for an issue like this to go on unresolved, so hopefully the folks who are addressing this not only fixed the problem, but also put something in place to mitigate it from occurring again in the future. Absent that I know I will likely think twice before any future purchase from the Oculus store.
In any case, off to download and play Lone Echo now!!
Agree, the support team needs to learn from this and improve. It was pretty clearly really early on that this was a download issue with the servers, yet over the course of a week it was suggested to me by the support team that I:
If I wasn't as technically inclined as I am, I probably would have taken them up on the refund, and gone with the reddit suggestion to download the game elsewhere.
After this was officially identified, it took longer than it should have to get the information out to the whole team. I'm working with some folks on new processes and identifying what went wrong on that side of things to make improvements for the future. While an individual agent might not know about a specific outage for a short time, it shouldn't take long for everyone to get the news.
I think this particular issue had a problem because it was trailing a similar issue that had been resolved, and concurrent with another, similar issue (the payment not completing one) that was resolved quickly.
We'll definitely be doing some process analysis on our end.
Glad to hear that finally something has been fixed, I just hope that Elite Dangerous is also restored soon because trying to play it in VR using their standard launcher installation is pretty unstable with many crashes compared to what I was experiencing before, especially if I switch to desktop to access other apps.
