Gorilla tag not working

Honored Guest

I updated my gorilla tag and now every time I try to play it I can’t the screen goes black and an agreement form pops up so after I agree to it the screen stays completely black!! Can someone please help me


You try a factory reset of the headset?  or u think its more in the game.

Have you guys tried launching another application? If any other game or application works, it's most likely an issue with Gorilla Tag itself rather than the headset. Seems like this has been something that users are experiencing often, have you guys tried visiting their Discord for help?

In the time of your life, live - so that in that wondrous time you shall not add to the misery and sorrow of the world, but shall smile to the infinite delight and mystery of it.

P.S., I can beat you at One Piece TCG and Tekken

thxs, makes sense.  yea, other apps seem fine.  i’ll try visit their discord

I only have issues with Gorilla Tag.  I will try Discord.

This is what I got from the app developer:

We believe the fix to your issue will either be incorrect time on headset, clearing your app data, or factory resetting the headset.

First check your time setting are set to Auto and that the headset has the correct time.

If that does not work please do the following.

next step: Clearing the Appdata.
Just choose Gorilla Tag when following that. 

If this did not work you can Factory Reset the headset like this.

Your cosmetics are safe as they are stored on the our servers and not your Quest.

Same thing is happening to me - did all the recommended trouble shooting with no luck.  Any update?

It is still not working for me.  I’ve done all of the recommended fixes:

1.  Deleted app data

2.  Change time settings

3.  Deleted and reinstalled app

4.  Factory reset and reinstalled 

Axiom keeps acting like it is just me….

OK I figured out what my issue is. I’m using a parental controls app Circle.  It was filtering access to the game’s URL.

Still need help?
