Really high lag

Gave the Shadow VR app a shot yesterday. Normally I use virtual desktop to play vr and it works very well in terms of latency, its just visuals take a slight bump with artifacting. However the VR app definitely gave me a headache in terms of lag that I was not able to handle more than a preliminary 3-4 minutes of just moving in the steamVR home before I was done from nausea.  Basically when I moved my head, it would take the visuals a full second before catching up to my head.


I’ll probably give it another shot today and load up a game and see how it runs. Also my set up is the same as when I run the virtual desktop so I dont think connecting is the problem.


Also if this isnt the place to post this, sorry. Still not sure where to put feedback.

Best place to post this would be in reporting & feature requests indeed :)

But your case is not normal. Lag should not be an issue (fluidity yes). Especially not one second long.

So there is something to investigate on our end.

If it’s taking a full second to catch up it’s likely a network issue.  It doesn’t happen often but I have encountered something like that with my Quest.  When it does if I disable and re-enable Wifi in my headset and reconnect it makes the problem go away.  However, if it’s a persistent problem for you it’s likely some other kind of network problem
