no textures after the new Beat Saber update

I don't have any textures on the walls anymore after the new Beat Saber update. The walls look like wire frames... I don't know if there are any other effects missing because the graphics look so simplistic now but maybe it's due to the missing textures.
Does anyone else have this problem and is there a solution?

Happening to me as well with the last update

There was another update some days ago but the textures are still missing. I wrote 2 mails to beat games but nobody answers.
Almost 100 people read this thread here and there's just one reaction (thank you s-ynth!) . I wonder if just 2 beat saber players worldwide on the quest have that "problem"...

Same here. But that is a feature. The introduced it with the color modes. This update is awful...

On Rift S and Index I do not notice the issue.

Anyway it looks better on PCVR. But it was ok on the Quest before even the textures looked a bit muddy.
With the latest updates you lose a lot of the immersion because in some levels you have some very long walls and they don't roll past anymore. You are just standing between some none-moving walls and there's no feeling of speed or movement at all...
I agree - the update is awful... even I like some of the new songs.

Hi,
I can confirm that with the new update the problem persists. I don't think that's a feature, if so, many other people would complain about that, it's a noticeable change and makes the experience worse. I've also posted to beat saber a message but, as earthberth said, no response so far.
If I find a solution I will post it here, I need to try a couple of things.

Thanks s-ynth. Maybe a complete reinstall solves it? I didn't try it so far...
I am disappointed that beat games doesn't react at all.

Hi. I have the same problem with my Quest. I deleted and reinstalled the software without success. And I just reset the headset to factory mode, still the same problem: no texture

It looks like they really removed the immersion and instead we can change the colours of the wire frames. Great...
Other companies developing for the quest try to push the limits of the snapdragon with great looking graphics (eg. Vertical Robot - Red Matter) and the company with the most successful VR game simplifies their quest version so much that the immersion is lost. And since their upgrade the frame rate is sometimes really bad (it was better when there were still textures on the walls).
I'm getting really envious when I see something like this on PCVR:

Obviously these graphics are not possible on the Quest - but please beat games - give us at least the option to turn on and off the textures on the walls...
