      Description

      This is related to machines having multiple GPU's; the Oculus Headset has to be connected to the same graphics card as the one which is being used as the "Primary Monitor".

      — 2-monitor setup example —

      if your machine has the following setup:

      • Monitor #1 connected to an NVidia graphics card
      • Monitor #2 connected to an ATI graphics card

      In your "Display" settings (right-click on the desktop / display settings), one of your monitors is marked as "Make this my main display".

      If your Oculus Headset is connected to the ATI, then monitor connected to the ATI (#1 in this example) has to be the "main display". If the NVidia is the "main display" you will get the above error - which you can resolve by selecting monitor #1 and clicking "Make this my main display".

      If the Oculus Headset is connected to the NVidia, then the monitor connected to the NVidia (#2 in this example) has to be the "main display". If the ATI is the "main display" you will get the above error - which you can resolve by selecting monitor #2 and clicking "Make this my main display"

      — 1-monitor setup example —

      if your machine has the following setup:

      • Oculus Headset, connected to an NVidia
      • 1 Monitor connected to an Intel Integrated Card (onboard).

      In this case, you are basically using your slow Intel Integrated card for everything nonVR related - which is probably not what you want (you are not benefitting at all from your fast GPU ! ). Additionally there is only 1 monitor, which will automatically result in it being the "Main Display" - while the Oculus Headset is connected to the NVidia. The game cannot run with this hardware setup.

      In order for it to work, you need to connect the Monitor to the NVidia. Likely the NVidia only has 1 HDMI-output, so you will have to connect your monitor to one of the other ports (likely Display-port or DVI).
