I kinda felt like something was going to change and suck after not requiring facebook anymore for it.

Yeah, in hindsight it makes sense but still this was quite a surprise. It is better for the potential competition though as Quest 2 price is less artificially deflated now.

So glad I just read this thread. Ordered 2, one for my older son who's been eyeing one for awhile and one for my youngest's birthday coming up in August. Saved me $200 and if this was reddit and I felt like wasting money on fake currency, I'd give you a gold award for the heads up.

Buy em up now boys if you're interested in the least. Kinda surprised Walmart hasn't "ran out of inventory" until it magically returns on August 1st. Looks like Amazon already has cough cough bullshit cough cough.

Wow, that kinda extreme for something that has been out for so long and not even a refresh of the product. Like with a better head support. For me it would be $499 + Battery + better strap (not the elite strap that many complain breaks/cracks after a few months or less). Does the cable to hook up to the PC come with it? Vive Pro Wireless Adaptor for the Vive Pro/2 sounds like a better route for me except the inside out of the Quest 2 makes it way more flexible in different play spaces.

It does come with a cable you can use to connect it to your PC but it's only 3 feet long lol. The official link cable is pretty expensive, you can get cheaper alternatives, but it's actually better using it wirelessly with a PC IMO. I bought a $70 wifi 6 router I use. The Bobo M2 Pro is on sale for $50, it's widely regaurded as the best headstrap for the Q2. It comes with a magnetic battery.

I'm glad that Meta is decoupling Facebook from Quest 2, but your situation sure sounds like a mess.

You need to read up on those "How to regain access to Facebook" HOWTOs to figure out all the workflows.

Infuriating.

I don't like the linking but I'm glad Oculus (erm, Meta VR) now has processes now via the VR departments' tech support system.
So a quick update, I went on the Oculus forums and started a thread asking for help and support got back to me. After a couple PMs back and forth for my information they were able to decouple my Oculus account from Facebook and get me back up and running with full functionality and access to my game library and mobile app.

In the meantime I bought another Q2 for my 7 year olds birthday and we have been having a ton of fun playing coop and multiplayer games.

I really want to give a Shoutout to all you guys that recommended Golf+, the game is my favorite and I even bought the Deadeye attachment hahaha....and like one other poster said, man its really modeled my driving slice perfectly.

I might end up buckling and buying one of these over the Index. That price is just too much for me...

BOBOVR M2 Plus Head Strap Twin Battery Combo,Compatible with Quest 2,Recirculating Power Supply System,Dual Battery Pack + Magnetic Charging Dock https://a.co/d/7D6whQY
Bought this as the stock strap puts a lot of pressure on my face. Good reviews and for good reason.
I gotta say, I haven't tried any other "premium" headstraps but this one is SO much more comfortable than the stock strap. The batteries do their job, stay in place and provide a nice counterbalance to the headset. I can't imagine going back to the stock style headstrap now. Well worth the cost imo.

Looks identical to the one I posted but different brand. I used my son's quest 2 and liked it but the new head strap is amazing. It's like an entirely different device.

Thinking about using installing Sidequest. Any suggestions for settings to try for visual improvements or otherwise, or games to try, etc. Reading up more on it. Think a newer version was released.

There are a bunch of older games converted to work in VR natively on Q2. I enjoyed playing Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Doom 3. A lot of the games you could only get on sidequest you can now also get on applab directly on the quest so I don't use it much anymore.

Just got the Air Bridge and fired up Lone Echo and my damn save is gone. I just played a few weeks ago and have not uninstalled anything so not sure wtf happened. Then funny enough I go to play Jurassic Park, a native Quest 2 game, and it says failed to sync to the cloud. Took off the thing and have no desire to pick it back up again anytime soon...

The Airbridge is only for connecting your Quest 2 to your PC. It doesn't connect you to the internet. The Lone Echo save would have nothing to do with the Airbridge either, It's stored locally on your PC, not in the cloud.

Here are save game replacements for Lone Echo

I know what the Air Bridge is for and I know it had nothing to do with the save being gone and the other game not syncing to the cloud. I got the Air Bridge so I was ready to jump back into Lone Echo and test it out but Oculus somehow deleted my save. I did not say anything about a cloud save for Lone Echo as I know that its saved locally on the pc. I thought I made it clear the cloud sync issue was with Jurassic Park which I said was a native Quest game. The only point here was I tried to play two games and ran into two issues so it was a bit frustrating.

And I had already googled and found some saves but thanks anyway.

Sorry, My bad. In my defence, your post does sound like you are blaming the airbridge.

You actually weren't complaining about the Quest 2 or the bridge, you were just having a bad day!!

Sorry for that. Hope you get back into VR soon.
