Oculus: force to run via Steam
Some games have the Oculus and the Steam plugin activated. When connected to a Rift(S) or Quest the Oculus plugin has priority and shuts SteamVR completely out.
In some cases there is a relatively easy fix: just rename the Oculus plugin directory.
Purchase the game on STEAM.
Rename the Oculus folder and call it e.g. “deactivate Oculus“
On some systems, after a restart that’s all you need to do. If not, continue with step 2.
In GameUserSettings.ini add in the last line
bEnableOculusSteamVR=True (it might be set to False by default).
