Problems with Unreal Engine games with Rift S

Level 2

Hallo everybody!


I've been playing with Oculus Rift since the beginning (DK1), now I've had the latest version, the Rift S, for years.

Until about 2-3 months ago everything went wonderfully - I could play Oculus and Steam games. Now some update must have broken something, because quite a few games no longer work.


On Steam: Titans of Space, The Wanderer and the newly purchased Green Hell lag terribly - 1-2 FPS, uncontrollable! Half life Alyx runs absolutely smooth, with the highest settings...


First I thought that only Steam games are affected, but now I see that also from the Oculus Store quite a few games do not go.


On Oculus Store: Robo recall and The Assembly also run only with 1-3 FPS, uncontrollable... ☹️ But Mission ISS, The Kremer Collection, Nature Treks run smoothly! 😯


I noticed that these are all Unreal Engine games? Can this be the reason? Does anyone else have the problem? What can I do? I paid money for the games, and I can't use them at all anymore...


My setting:


1. Notebook MSI GT 73vr 6RE (i7-6820HK, four cores eight threads, 2,7-4,0 Ghz; NVidia 1070 GTX w 8 GB VRAM; 32 GB DDR4-RAM, 2x256 GB Raid4-M.2 SSD and 1x4 TB Sata-SSD; 120Hz LED-Display, SteelSeries3 Keyboard, Dynaudio Speakers...)

2. External graphic card with watercooling (Gigabyte AORUS Box, 2080ti w /11 GB VRAM)


1 and 2 are connected via thunderbolt cable. All this has worked flawlessly for years! But now... ☹️


Please help me!


Thank you.
