Oculus Rift Driver Update 0.4.2 Beta



New Features

  • Added OVRServiceLauncher Windows service, resolving the issue with the service not launching automatically on some systems.
  • Added a new chroma setting for minimum eye relief, improving chromatic aberration correction when configured through the Oculus Configuration Utility.
  • Added “Riftsaver” mode, which turns off Rift display in direct mode if the headset is not in use.

Bug Fixes

Oculus SDK

  • Fixed an issue where the built-in latency tester would randomly stop working and the DK2 would have to be reset. This fix requires an update to the provided 2.12 firmware in the latest runtime installer.
  • Removed ATL references from the LibOVR Win32 Display code.
  • Fixed full core utilization of Oculus Configuration Utility when in Desktop mode.
  • Fixed the lag in Oculus Configuration Utility when the service is stopped.
  • Miscellaneous improvements to the Oculus Runtime Service (now called OVRServer).


  • Fixed crashes and corruption when using 64-bit client with 32-bit service.
  • Fixed NullReferenceExceptions due to script initialization order.
  • Fixed race conditions in TimeWarp responsible for camera stutter.
