hi guys,

just curious if anyone has gotten LB to work on the quest?

thanks!

Hi @d8thstar, I've previously used Big Box via the original Oculus, but I haven't tested anything with the new Quest. But technically, anything should be able to run in a virtual environment. If you use a controller, you should be good to go as far as I know.

The quest is the standalone Android based headset. So you would need to use streaming software like Moonlight or Steam to stream the feed to the headset over WiFi. Oculus did announce last week a USB C cable that will allow connecting the quest headset to a PC where it will then work in standard Oculus Rift S mode using your PC hardware and sending the feed via cable like a standard PC headset, however that is not currently available to buy.

Oh, ha. I didn't realize the Quest was for Android. That's a better answer than I could give. Thanks @neil9000.

Yeah its basically a headset with a phone in it, its arm based and runs a customised version of Android for true cable free VR.

but since LB is now running on android, should you be able to get it to run natively in the headset, without streaming from a pc?

I would imagine the Android version would work but that is just an assumption.
