Unable to create profile to start VR game

Recommended Posts

I am unable to even start playing Dirt Rally 2 VR.

I start Steam VR, use my controller to select the game, which then plays a cinematic scene. It then asks me to complete a profile, but I am unable to enter anything as neither the hand controllers or keyboard work. There is already a letter 'V' in the 'First Name' field, with a text curser beside it which I can't move, and my Steam username is already in the surname field.

I have also tried starting the game by clicking Play directly on Dirt Rally 2 in Steam (rather than launching Steam VR first) and selecting 'Launch Dirt Rally 2.0 in Steam VR mode'. That has the exact same effect except there is also no sound if I do it that way.

Do I have to try starting the game in non-VR first just to set up the profile?

Try the first steps in non VR mode, maybe there are some bugs with fresh install. After that retry in VR.

this issue is known since vr version release reported multiple times and obviously ignored by CM.

the same bug (inability to enter text in VR) is present in rename car setup option which result in the need of kill/restarting the game. just imagine it at time you are in the middle of championship.

Anyway, in your case run the game in monitor mode, go through onboarding process. Then rerun game in VR. but remember: do not even try to rename any of your setups.
