I have everything working on an iMac AIR.  Shadow VR is up and running.   My son really wants to play Roblox VR.   What are my next steps?

I can confirm that Roblox VR cannot be used with Shadow.

The reason why is Roblox VR is only compatible with Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.

If your VR is a oculus, the oculus link cable can allow you to play Oculus Rift games on the quest/ quest 2. If not, I am not aware of any other way.

Best Regards,

Thanks for the tip. If anyone can try and confirm that would be great news!

Sunnychk1, I’m afraid your wrong. Roblox VR would not see the VR that way.

Roblox VR could support more VR headsets soon, please be aware that it’s still in Beta.

Roblox VR used to work for a few days using Steam VR, but now it is broken :/

The way you did it was opening Steam VR before Roblox and launching Roblox with Steam VR open.

Hello, I can confirm this works by going into steamVR and going into steam desktop mode with the monitor icon, and launching Roblox from the desktop will launch in VR mode without any effort!

Since Roblox VR is not a game available on SteamVR it won’t work unfortunately. Shadow VR allows you to play games from SteamVR only.

I just had roblox vr working for my grandson… using virtual desktop and my oculus quest 2

Make sure steam is off and not logged in.

sign in to roblox from a web page.

My grandson was playing “vr hands” ..

click  on game ‘vr hands’ and quickly press the left menu button on the left controller of the oculus quest. this brings up the virtual desktop menu..

quickly click the launch steam vr on the left column of virual desktop  and the game plays in vr..
