A streak of Oculus Link issues, from visual glitches to a permanent black screen. : OculusQuest

Earlier than I begin, here is some information about my system:CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 1800XGPU: Gigabyte RTX 2070 SUPERRAM: 16GBMotherboard: MSI X370 TitaniumOS: Home windows 10 Dwelling 64-bit

So a few month in the past, I acquired my model new Oculus Quest 2. With it, I bought a third-party Oculus Hyperlink cable: Anker Powerline USB C to USB 3.zero Cable, 3mI actually wished to play SteamVR video games like Half-Life: Alyx, however I had a couple of points with Oculus Hyperlink, a few of which I resolved, which I’ve detailed beneath. I’d actually admire some assist, however please learn the whole lot, as among the points I detailed have been resolved/modified over time.

At first, once I began Oculus Hyperlink from the Quest 2 (via the Popup or the settings menu), I used to be greeted with a black display. No dots, no oculus emblem. I did nonetheless, have sound so I might hear the sound of recreation I launched on Steam, however not see something. I resolved this situation by updating my Graphics Card Driver from GeForce expertise.

From that time on, I might play HL:A on the Quest 2, however there have been nonetheless two predominant points: First, there have been a couple of black flashes which might occur recurrently and take me out of the expertise. And typically, the sport would begin freezing and glitching visually, which may be very uncomfortable.

Then, there was an Oculus Quest Replace (which took Hyperlink out of beta). Now issues received worse: as an alternative of the black flashes, the Quest 2 would abort Hyperlink and show the “PC Disconnected” popup. The difficulty did not appear to return from the cable as I examined it by enjoying round with each ends of the connection and shaking the cable, however that did not trigger the difficulty, which typically occurred once I was simply standing nonetheless, doing nothing. I then plugged the hunt right into a motherboard USB 3.zero port as an alternative of the case’s 3.zero port, and the disconnection points the place gone, however not the sport breaking visible glitches and lags, which appeared to worsen over time, and infrequently triggered once I entered a menu. I am speaking about minute lengthy 1 FPS moments and typically steady visible glitches as if I used to be shaking my head left and proper very quickly.

That brings us to at present, the place I got here throughout this text on Steam: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2041609017I attempted the steps detailed within the information, however I began with Course of Hacker 2 as an alternative of Prio, as a result of I already had it on my system. Nevertheless, as that did not assist a lot, I put in Prio and adopted the information. However then, as I began Oculus Hyperlink from the hunt 2, I used to be greeted with the acquainted black display, no oculus emblem, no dots, solely sound. No buttons on the controllers did something. I might simply see the guardian boundaries. I restarted my laptop a number of occasions, reconnected the hunt after utterly shutting it down. Nothing helped.

So, does this appear acquainted to anybody? Does anybody have a trick I might strive or a useful resource I might use?

I’d admire it very a lot.

Thanks for studying.
