Why not do as I suggested to you? You stated:
Well Ive completed guardian setup 4 or 5 times now, click finish, play games.. all good. finish, hang up rift.A bit later put it back on "play area not defined" go through entire setup again, rinse and repeat.
Start the controller setup.
Set floor height as directed.
Skip guardian setup.
This should take care of it.
You can also remove the batteries from the controllers.
This does not solve it and therefore there should be the option to remove controllers completely and prevent the setup from starting. Oculus will sooner or later ask you again to setup the controllers. Regardless that you have done so before. This experience is frustrating and just amateur programming as if the makers of the headset never used it. Once I set it up it must remember the settings and not randomly forget them. What is even worse, the skip button does nothing. Controller setup will re-open immediately after.
I have this exact same problem. Sim racer/flyer and whenever I go into iRacing I get the "play area not defined" message. Why doesn't it remember what it was. I literally sit in the same place for all my games. I have tried removing the batteries and I still get the prompts. The only reason I have batteries in the hand controllers is because I need to click the setup prompts. It's really a pain and I wish there were a way to bypass play area setup for people like me and original poster.
He did. I did also, it doesn't work, because Oculus looses the setup and asks you to run setup again every time you play a game. Not only that, but Oculus asks you to run setup every 30 seconds or so, even after you click "Skip Setup"
Why doesn't oculus include an option to play without controllers; do they not realize it's possible to play without controllers???
