    Project cars won't load on Oculus Rift from steam

    So i go to launch pcars from steam while using the rift. I launch it from the play button and select "launch - oculus rift in other vr mode". I don't use steam VR. The game will load fine in the window mode. I make sure it is the active window. When i put on the rift all i get is a loading screen, then a error saying "Pcar64.exe is taking a while to load check app on monitor". The game will run fine on the monitor and will even be doing head tracking. It just won't load on the rift. I went into documents and deleted the .xml files but that didn't help. Not sure what to do.

    So it worked OK before today? It seems that something changed in the Oculus VR start-up option, I'll inquire with the devs.

    Would be nice though to hear from other Oculus users whether it's still working or not.

    Also, please check whether you're not on the beta client by accident.

    It was my first time running it on the rift. And sorry I was asleep, since i'm on PST. i Think i might be in beta, Lower left says beta on the rift. It's running 1.4.0.224375. And in steam i have opted out of the beta.

    It's a no-go for me. I just tried Pcars and Phoenix and neither run (both are Steam). I had no issues last week. I can provide whatever details needed.

    Running OH 1.4.0.224375 (1.4.0.224.996) with DK2. No issues for any other VR title.
