Game closing whenever you get an OVR Toolkit update? Disable 'Game Theatre' in the Steam desktop client settings!


  • Added displaying of Windows notifications. Enable through Global Settings > Customisation. (Can show Discord messages!)
  • All major media players are now supported by the media controls. (Using UWP SMTC, the thing that appears when you change volume in Windows)
  • Added a 'Report bugs in Discord' warning when the Changelog viewer is closed. (It's really unfortunate this needs to be a thing...)
  • Added 'Report bug' button to the settings window outside of VR. (It explains that you should join Discord and gives you the log file location)


  • Drastically improved startup performance of window captures. (No more few seconds freeze, may help avoid a crash)
  • Reduced CPU and GPU usage. (Mainly when idle and no overlays are visible)

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed an issue that would prevent clicking window quick controls when a curved overlay was behind them.
  • Improved update rate of time, date, and time since startup on wrist overlay.
  • Changelog viewer is now async, doesn't 'totally' freeze the program whilst downloading changelog anymore.
  • Added potential fix for desktop captures freezing. (Or more like a workaround until I can make my own plugin to replace the existing one!)

How to enable Windows notifications such as Discord messages:

In OVR Toolkit, go into 'Global Settings', 'Customise', then scroll to the bottom and select 'Enable notifications'.

In Windows, disable 'Focus Assist', or, set it to 'Priority Only' and add Discord to the priority list.
Ensure you turned off the 'Automatic rules' for 'Focus Assist'!
