This article talks about using VRChat on the Oculus Quest and Quest 2. It also gives an overview of how it works.
What Is VRChat for Quest?
VRChat is a free VR game that lets you play with many other people. You can also play it on a computer without a virtual reality headset. The basic game lets people make worlds and avatars that other people can see and use. If you play VRChat for Quest, it’s the same as VRChat for PC, and you can talk to PC players, but there are a few rules.
PC worlds and avatars and Quest worlds and avatars were added to Quest when VRChat was added. The planets and avatars made for PC users have few limits and can be hard on even the most powerful computers. Quest worlds and avatars, on the other hand, have limited file sizes and other restrictions because they were made for the Quest and Quest 2.
Quest users can only visit Quest worlds and use Quest avatars. PC players can visit both PC and Quest worlds and use both their PC avatars and their Quest avatars simultaneously. PC players and Quest players can talk to each other, but only in worlds made for Quest or have a Quest version. People who play the game on a PC can enjoy a more detailed experience while still being able to interact with people who play the game on a Quest at the same time.
To play VRChat on your Quest, you’ll need to run the game on your computer and connect it to your Quest with a link cable. The Quest and Quest 2 are both VR-ready.
How to Play VRChat on Quest or Quest 2
There is one big difference between VRChat on PC and Quest and Quest 2. You can’t visit PC-only worlds or use PC-only avatars. Even if you play on a computer, you can still meet and talk to PC players.
For your help, we’ll show you how to play with basic controls, find a custom avatar that works with the Quest version of the game, and find new worlds to play in.
What Are the Limitations of VRChat on Quest?
In VRChat, the two main things that aren’t good for Quest are that you can’t see avatars or visit worlds that aren’t good for Quest. You can’t use or visit the avatar or world if it doesn’t have the PC/Quest logo.
They will look like a floating robot with no legs, and they will have a little PC logo on their chest when you meet someone who only has a PC-only avatar. It’s still possible to talk to and interact with them, but you won’t be able to see their avatar.
The Quest version of a PC/Quest world is what you’ll get when you go to one of those worlds. In general, PC players see more detailed models and textures, better particle effects and more. You, on the other hand, will see a more basic world. If you want to see and talk to PC players, the basics stay the same, but your world’s view may be a little different from theirs.
Overall, the Quest version of the game looks less detailed than the PC version. There are no shadows, and the models are simpler, the textures are worse, and so on. The good thing is that the game runs well even though the Quest has low specs. In some cases, it runs even better than the PC version does on low-end hardware.
How to Play the PC Version of VRChat on Oculus Quest
To play VRChat on your Quest, you need to run the game on a VR-ready computer and connect your Quest to it with a link cable or a virtual screen. A game runs on your computer, and the Quest headset is used as a headset for the game. The best thing to do is to use VRChat and SteamVR on Steam to do this.
- To play VRChat on your Quest, you need to follow these steps.
- Get the Steam version of VRChat if you haven’t already done so, and then install it.
- Download and set up SteamVR.
- Open up the Oculus app on your PC and use it.
- Link cable is used to connect your headset to your phone.
- Take a look at SteamVR. Make sure it can see your headset and controllers.
- Launch VRChat, and play on your headset while you do it.
As long as the game runs on your PC, you can use PC-only avatars and visit PC-only worlds. How well your computer will run will depend on how well your computer is made.
