Desktop Client

VERSION 3.1.31


  • The Launcher no longer shuts down and has to restart in case a title has specific startup issues. Instead the UI updates and allows trying to start the title again.
    • NOTE: We will be improving this behavior to handle more startup issues as well as the UI to notify both the user and the operator about these launch issues in the future.

Bug Fixes

  • Improved recognition of SteamVR shutting down or outright crashing.
  • Improved recognition of the currently running title in case of title launch issues like the end user license agreement not being accepted yet.
    • More information about how to accept EULAs can be found here.
  • Improved handling of the operating system going into standby/sleep/hibernate and resuming afterwards.
  • Prevented the Launcher restarting in case the previous title doesn’t successfully start after a timeout and the user used the UI to get back to the Launcher or even started another title already.
  • Prevented waiting for the last started title to run when shutting down the Desktop Client.
  • Prevented starting the Launcher when shutting down the Desktop Client while in Idle Mode.
  • Fixed a rare issue that resulted in the UI not showing up in the Launcher or the VR dashboard right after Idle Mode ends.
  • Fixed a rare case of the Launcher starting up multiple times.
  • Fixed a rare case of the running title quitting and the Launcher starting up instead.
