Crash with oculus in standalone when hitting alt+ent

Hi everyone,

I just borrowed the oculus rift from a friend and tried to get my 4.1. project running.
When I start my project in standalone mode it works fine. When I hit alt+enter to get play
in fullscreen mode and using the oculus it crashes.
This happens in my project even when I open the standard demo level. Downloaded projects
like the effect cave, the realistic interior and so on are working fine. So I tried creating a new
project in 4.1.(First person Blueprint). This crashes as well. So it has nothing to do with my personal project.

When I create a new FP BP project in 4.2. it works !! So I would like to convert my 4.1 Project to 4.2. assuming
it was a 4.1 problem, fixed in 4.2.
But I don´t know how to do this. When I start 4.2. I can´t see a screenshot of my 4.1. project to select and convert.

Can anyone please tell me, how to migrate the whole project?
Can I just backup my whole project-folder in case the conversion doesn´t work an I have
to get back to 4.1 ?
And has anyone encountered the same crash with the oculus in 4.1 ?

Hi DIO_666,

We just released a new update for the Launcher that includes some new functionality. You can clone a project from within the launcher now. If you open the Library tab > Select the project you want to clone > Select the down arrow > Select Clone and name your project accordingly.

This is a good way to backup any projects without having to manually do it from the Unreal Projects folder.

You can try migrating your project to 4.2 and see if this resolves the issue you’re having. If you’re still having issues with the crash feel free to post here and I’ll see what we can do to resolve it.

Thank you!

Tim

Hi DIO_666,

I’ve not heard back from you in the past few days on this issue. I’m going to mark this as resolved for tracking purposes. If you’re still having the issue you can post back here to be looked at.

Thank you!

Hi Tim,

thank you very much for your help.
Actually I solved the problem with the oculus updating to 4.1.1.
After that it just worked fine.
I thought I answered this here already, but somehow my reply wasn´t saved here.
Maybe I wasn´t login.
Anyway, 4.1.1 works fine with oculus, I got the crash hitting alt+enter in standalone
mode only in 4.1.
Since I will definitely migrate my project to 4.2 sometime it is good to know I can clone and backup my project :slight_smile:

Again, thanks a lot

Cyril
