Oculus Quest w/ Link - VR flashes between flight sim and Oculus home

Do you have any add-ons in your Community folder? If yes, please remove and retest before posting. No

Are you using Developer Mode or made changes in it?

Yes. I have disabled Stencil FOV as suggested in these steps

  1. Go to the Oculus Debug tool (Default folder should be C:\Program Files\Oculus\Support\oculus-diagnostics)
  2. Open the Oculus Debug Tool
  3. Turn the option “Use FOV Stencil” to Off
  4. Disable/enable VR in MSFS

Brief description of the issue:

I can navigate the full game in the menus while in VR. When in a flight and switching to FV, the VR view constantly jumps between a glimpse of the In-game view and the Oculus Home screen. On the computer screen, the Windowed flight sim window is constantly shifting to the left like 10 or so pixels at a time and losing and regaining focus.

I also have this problem, followed the steps above and no change.


Have you tried updating the Oculus headset and software? Last week I tried it after the most recent update to the Oculus and it worked fine.

Turning off all MSFS 2020 Popup Windows before entering VR mode solved the blinking/flashing between views problem for me.
