    I’m having the same issue, Oculus seems to take over games made with unity or unreal engine.

    Hope someone has a fix for this.

    if that goes directly into oculus runtime then it basically disregards steamvr which is where driver4vr works 🙁
    i guess it would still run with vive.

    I asked the question on discord and got this reply.

    [15:41] P03K!: Hey @Brophy Im also using dk2. What you can do is use 0.8 sdk with steamvr.. Or use open composite for some selected apps.
    [15:41] P03K!: You can also configure a profile in OTT if you have set it up correctly

    I got the 0.8 runtime to install after uninstalling everything oculus, disconnecting tracker/hmd, install it then reconnecting everything. It detects the camera and hmd and turns it’s on correctly/can be used once I start SteamVR (without oculus-client loaded, as its no longer installed (YAY!)).

    I only got round to testing one game which was Contagion VR, however the game got stuck with a ‘black screen’.

    @greg do you have an example how to get around this? I tried the 0.8 runtime to try and get around it but games use the newer sdk, so the majority don’t start.
