Just wanted to send my compliments to the team working on the alpha app! It’s SO AMAZING. I experienced slight stutter issues when I turned my head, but the hand controller tracking was smooth and perfect. Any tips on how to reduce stutter on head turn?

This video is of me running Half Life: Alyx on an Oculus Quest 2 via Shadow Boost tier. It's a great time to be a gamer. I don't even need to have a gaming PC to play PC VR. And I can do it wirelessly. The weird snap turning you see is a comfort feature I use so I don't get as dizzy when turning in the game.

I connected my Quest 2 to Steam VR using the Sideloaded app, ShadowVR Alpha version 3.4.5. I used SidequestVR to load the app.

Setup was super easy!

That’s great! Very good to hear that you enjoy using Shadow even with an experimental feature such as VR. Wish you all the best with it)
