Oculus - VR not working. Any help?

Are you guys running HDR monitors? If you have HDR enabled in Windows turn it off as I know this was an issue with the Quest 2 showing an Orange screen.


I’ve not installed the new update but my first thought was reset view also.

This allows the view to be set in the correct place but I still have a black box at the right hand side of the screen.

doesnt work

Same problem here and verified the path was the correct one… this is crazy.

Go to the Oculus Debug tool: Default folder should be C:\Program Files\Oculus\Support\oculus-diagnostics Open the Oculus Debug Tool Turn the option “Use FOV Stencil” to Off Enjoy! Edit: Don’t forget to reconnect to apply the change in setting (ctrl+tab) - you will lose the setting when restarting the PC. When you update the Oculus software to v24, the recentering issue is fixed. You can see your version in Settings - General - at the bottom it should tell you the version of the software.


tuning hdr off worked! but its annoying


but now i have that weird mask there all the time

Same here. Also touch controllers don’t work at all.

I am experiencing this black thing on both sides.

I am having the same issue with the HP Reverb G2 paired with an RTX 3080. I will try the HDR workaround but I am able to use everything else with no issues while HDR is enabled.

When seeing black stencils in your Oculus view:

Update to the latest version of the Oculus software. If that doesn’t work:

  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

If you see yellow, try to recenter the view. And disable HDR in the graphic settings.


Updating the Oculus software to the latest version will get rid of those annoying black stencils.


Hey guys, turning off HDR in windows display settings solved my yellow screen in headset issue. Hope it does for you.

They are no implemented in this unfortunately.

Just select the Oculus Public Test Channel to upgrade to version 24 and the issues will be gone.

If anyone finds a way to make this game work in VR using Virtual Desktop, please let me know.

Managed to get it working on the Index. Not sure how but it worked. My first take is that it wasn’t worth the effort. Performance / fps is horrendous and the settings are nigh all on low to be passable. This is on a 10900k and 3080. Hugely disappointed. Game also crashed when exiting flight. Buggy. Gutted.

I can confirm, turning HDR off in Windows solved the Yellow Screen for me. Not enough to just turn HDR off in game for anyone who this doesn’t work for, gotta be in Windows.
