Oculus Quest 2 setup is super easy. Getting OpenSim on it, not so much

Maria Korolov with the Oculus Quest 2 headset.

I just ordered my Oculus Quest 2 headset this morning — and it already came this evening.

Initial impression is that it’s the easiest-to-use headset I’ve tried so far. Very comfortable, very lightweight, and I didn’t even need to charge it up when I took it out of the box.

Next step — figure out how to use it with OpenSim.

First, I need to install Steam and Steam VR (and find a light skin for Steam, since my eyes suck and can’t read white text on a black background). Then, install the Oculus app on my computer.

Then, there’s something called the Firestorm VR Mod, and  the latest download link is here. Unfortunately, I get an error when I try to run it.

Welp, I guess this is going to take a while! Anybody have any ideas or suggestions for fixing the Firestorm problem?I’ll keep you guys posted.

Meanwhile, watch my unboxing video below.
