Xplane 11VR6 and Rift - Not working after certificate issue was resolved and software updated

asked Mar 13 by Frontwave (12 points)
Was working well and I had made numerous flights in VR until the rift certificate issue which temporarily made Rift users unable to use their headsets until a fix came out a day after. Upon the fix the VR component of Xplane stopped working.

1. Main VR screen in hanger works fine. Can select flight details and will then attempt to load.
2. When loading is complete at first it looks ok although the view is somewhere outside the cockpit. Upon attempting to press any buttons on the rift controller to "get yourself back in the pilots seat" the program hangs and nothing happens.
3. I cannot select any menus using the rift controllers.
4. Xplane runs fine with VR disabled.

I would try resetting the preferences to see if that helps. Move the preferences folder (found in the Output folder) to the desktop, then restart X‑Plane and default preferences will be restored. If the default preferences do not fix your problem, you can simply replace them with the folder you moved to the desktop and restore your personalized settings.

Try restarting the computer completely as well.

ps  do we have to use steam for x-plane 11 VR?  I wish we could bypass oculus and steam and just go direst x-plane 11 vr

Indeed jroberts this was exactly what Laminar came back to me with. And that's exactly what fixed my issue. Now I am back in full VR glory.......

Woodpelletburnbasket.....I run Process Lasso in Bitsum High performance mode and make sure you use Oculus Tray Tool and set AWS to 45fps instead of Auto. Launch Xplane as per normal ( xplane.exe ) and it will take care of launching everything that is required for the VR component. I have found this gives me the best fps.
