STOP ASKING TO SETUP CONTROLLERS

is there ANY WAY to get rid of this nag screen?

The only games I play in VR are racing and flight sims,  I do not use the controllers and I do not stand up or move around.

yet every time I start any game...   I get kicked out and have to click "skip controller setup"  in a game like asseto corsa where you go to and from VR between races it means I have to do this over and over again every time I play.

I removed my controllers from the device list hoping that would make it stop looking for them.. nope.

Is there any way to set it to stop asking about the damn controllers?  And "setup play area"  that too.

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.

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.

This sucks.

Why not do as I suggested to you? You stated:

"The only games I play in VR are racing and flight sims,  I do not use the controllers and I do not stand up or move around."

As far as your issue, when you are putting the headset back on are you in approximately the same position in your setup that you were previously? For some reason the software is thinking it has changed it would seem.

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 the same problem. I believe that the problem is that the programmers never considered that someone might play their games without these controllers.  It has to be added to the software or it will never stop.

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.

That doesn't work; for some reason Oculus looses the setup and asks you to do it again.  

 

To say the least, it's really annoying to loose controls in a game because Oculus is asking you to run setup.

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???
