Quest 1 and games : movement glitches

Honored Guest


I'm experiencing some problems in Half-Life games.

  1. Context :
    I've got an Oculus Quest 1 that is connected to my PC, running on Windows 10, through Virtual Desktop Streamer (v° 1.30.4).

  2. My problem
    I use this installation to play `HL : Alyx` and `HL 2 VR MOD : Episode Two`.
    I'm facing a problem with the motion : in the game, I'm sliding continuously to the right side.
    If I use turbo motion to go left then, most of the time, a turbo motion sends me to the right.
    If I am driving a car in the game then the turbo kicks in very often while I didn't use it.

  3. What I tried
    1. I restarted the headset.
    2. I replaced the batteries in the left controller with :
      1. fully charged rechargeable batteries,
      2. brand new battery.
    3. I removed headset and controllers from Oculus and added them back.

The problem is still there.

I've just noticed I now have the same problem in other games. I used to play Hyperdash without any problem before. So, as a check, I launched it again and the board of mutators is scrolling continuously. Once in the game, I experience the sliding motion too.

So, it's definitely not just a Half-Life glitch!
