Oculus (Other VR) Failing?

  • I don't have a great mental model of how FS2 interacts with the Oculus, but I used to use it just fine, starting from Steam and telling it on the 3-part pop up menu to use the Oculus (other) VR, but now it just starts up (steam says it's running) and then silently crashes (steam says it's not running). I've tried this with and w/o starting the Oculus software first. No diff, and starting it from the Oculus library appears to do exactly the same thing (although from inside the oculus) -- starts, then just immediately crashes. All my updates are up to date, I think. Is there a crash log someplace I can read. (I'm on W10, all latest updates to everything, as far as I know.) Thanks!

  • No Problems here, never crashed Aerofly 2 with Rift in Win7 / 64.

    One of the only Simulator who never crashed ...


    P3DV4 + FSX sometimes give up :) ...but I can live with this.

    Have Steam check your installation for errors.

    Aerofly log file is located at "C:\Users\ ... \Documents\Aerofly FS 2\tm.log" check the last couple of lines for any hints.

    My best guess is: outdated graphics card drivers. Those are usually not updated automatically with windows 10 updates.
