Screen flickers when packaging VR template with MetaXR plugin in UE5.2

Honored Guest


I have a problem with screen flickering when packaging a VR project with the MetaXR plugin and the VR template in UE5.2.1.

My environment:

  • Windows 11 Pro
  • Meta Quest 2 (PC Link)
  • Unreal Engine5.2.1
  • 55.0 Unreal Engine 5 Integration

The steps I followed are:

  1. Launch the VR template
  2. Enable the MetaXR plugin
  3. Restart the UE editor
  4. Package the project
  5. Run the packaged exe file

The screen flickers between black and the VR template image when I run the exe file.

The flickering goes away when I wake up the HMD from sleep mode.

What is causing this issue and how can I fix it?

The same problem occurred with version 56 of the MetaXR plugin released today.

try enabling (or making the opposite of what is currently in the project) in Instanced Stereo and/or Mobile Multiview .
These settings can be seen in Project Setttings>Rendering>VR

Thanks for the reply.
I tried changing Instanced Stereo and/or Mobile Multiview settings but the problem did not change.
