Like you claim "when you start odyssey no VR will work" you dont know it not a bit.Where I know it from. It is the current state of the launcher since releasing the game. As far you select Odyssey no VR will working in each combination. A hybrid solution is not working due to the different rendering.
Yes the launcher was in this State for like 6 years.And there was no reason to change that cause they just release 1 DLC in this time.
So it's time to change and why not it's just a launcher !!!
So wait and see and stop claiming this fairytale or stop sounding like a old fart "we always launch Elite this way why we should change it now"
