Robo Recall Update

TommyJacob_EpicTommyJacob_Epic Posts: 1 Epic Games
Today we released an update to Robo Recall. This update fixed a bug where some players were getting stuck on a black screen at startup. If this issue occurs, a restart will reset your settings file and clear the issue. This will not affect your saved game. We have updated our Korean localization to improve clarity on several terms and phrases and updated the credits to include the extended list of Robo Recall contributors.

    The update is causing issues. I played Robo Recall with ZERO problems since I purchased the Rift 3 days ago..and come this update I'm getting messages playing robo recall that my headset is not detected. It does not happen in other games. You're playing normally then the game stops and you get the message that the headset is not detected. Seems to happen at random with a spacing of roughly 5 mins apart. It has made the game unplayable.

    I didnt have that issue when playing for about 30 minutes after the update last night.

    Dunno what to tell you. The first 2 days I bought the rift were my days off and I spent at least 12+ hours playing Robo Recall (its now my fitness/exercise routine :P !), 3rd day I played for 6 hours before going to work... neither this nor any issue happened. Wake up this morning, it updates, start playing and 5 to 10 mins later pow this issue starts. Logic dictates the update did something no?

    Anythings possible... Maybe your pc didnt update the game properly or fully? You could always try reinstalling the game.

    That sounds like a hardware issue that has plagued the Rift since its release.  I just got my replacement rift via RMA for the exact issue you are describing.  It's intermittent, but you'll likely find that it starts to effect all your games until it gets to a point that the rift is absolutely unusable.  If nobody else has disconnect issues, it's likely your headset is starting to fail.  Be prepared to start a support ticket...

    That is very disturbing to hear. If the hardware is sure to fail after a short time like this requiring RMA and such nonstop then it makes dropping so much money on it be a bad investment. If it continues to do it this week, while im still within the 14 days best buy has to return it, I'll return it and wait for Oculus or a competitor to release something better. It makes no sense to RMA something that has such a chronic 'feature'.

    Maybe try making sure your sensors are tilted high enough and are far enough away to see your headset at all times.

    They worked flawlessly for 4 days so its extremely unlikely its the sensors (haven't been moved either). Again, this began right after the patch.

    @Dantac I'd recommend getting a replacement, especially if you are still covered. 
    AMD Ryzen 7 1800X | MSI X370 Titanium | G.Skill 16GB DDR4 3200 | EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 | Corsair Hydro H110i
    PowerColor RX 480 x2 | Samsung 960 Evo M.2 500GB | Seagate FireCuda SSHD 2TB | Phanteks ENTHOO EVOLV

    I reinstalled the game and it works fine now. I'm quite relieved :)

    @falken76, how long did it take for you to get a replacement after it was delivered to the warehouse?
    I'm still waiting on a confirmation that a replacement has been sent and the warehouse received it 8 days ago. 
    Did you eventually get a return tracking number or did it just show up.

    still haven't fixed the recurring audio issue with robo recall. it's the only game in either oculus or steam that regularly drops audio.

    I got excited when I saw the thread title. I was expecting (hoping) another level or more content.

    Did you eventually get a return tracking number or did it just show up at your house one day. Man I just want to play Lone Echo!!!!!

    I have only played 2 levels, but this game is freaking amazing! When she told me I could put my hands behind my back and grab 2 shotguns?! Hell YEEAAH!! This is so badass!
    Was stuck where you had to collect 10 robots and played that level 6 times before I finally figured out that i'm not supposed to kill them, i'm supposed to literally collect them, by grabbing and throwing them into the circle xD

    Hoping for future development of this game, meaning more levels and challenges, hopefully there will be more after I reach the end.

    Robo Recall seems more jerky / screen not smooth during game play recently, anyone experiencing similar issue?

    But did you then do as I did and pretty much punch yourself in the HMD as you reached for the shotguns?  :D

    Yes, exact same issue. Robo Recall is jerky, and sometimes loses tracking all together. I don't get it in any other title, and I never used to get it in Robo Recall either. I have a core i7, 32GB RAM, and GTX 1080Ti, so it's not that I'm underpowered ;-)


    Last time I played Robo Recall, which was around month ago it was fine. What I have noticed, is that the tracking / jerking issue gets worse when you put your hands up within view

    Something has changed with the latest update I think. Either Robo Recall's update, or Oculus 1.17 beta?

    @Micro666

    A core i7 can be MANY things - be specific.
