Play Fallout 4 VR on Oculus Quest 2

This will work with other Steam VR games, and I did get it to work with SkyrimVR also.

  • Summary: (Software you will need)
    • Virtual Desktop
    • SideQuest
    • SteamVR
    • Fallout 4 VR
  • Details:
    • Virtual Desktop:
      • Purchase the version from your Oculus 2 Headset, there are several versions of Virtual Desktop, and you will need this one to avoid problems.
    • SideQuest
    • SteamVR
      • This app is available from the Steam store on your computer.
    • Fallout 4 VR
      • Purchase this from the SteamVR store.
  • Running Fallout 4 VR:
    • Connect to Virtual Desktop from your Oculus Quest 2 headset
    • Click the menu button to show the VR Menu
    • Launch SteamVR
    • Run Fallout 4 VR

At this point, if you are not using mods for Fallout 4 VR, then you’re done and can play.

If you are using mods that require the Script Extender, you cannot just “Run Fallout 4 VR” because it will not run the script extender. For me, I had to do the following:

  • Running Fallout 4 VR with Mods:
    • Connect to Virtual Desktop from your Oculus Quest 2 headset
    • Click the menu button to show the VR Menu
    • Launch SteamVR
    • Click the menu button
    • Show Desktop
    • In Vortex, click the FO4SE
    • Click the menu button
    • Return to VR

This setup is just a summary of what worked for me based on the following article:
