Oculus Integration for Unity - 1.31.0
The Oculus Integration for Unity is available in the Unity Asset Store. Download the package from the Oculus Integration page, or by searching for Oculus Unity Integration in the Asset Store tab of the Unity Editor.
Please see Compatibility and Version Requirements for important known Unity issues and support information.
The Oculus Utilities for Unity package includes includes scripts, prefabs, and other resources to supplement Unity’s built-in support. The package includes an interface for controlling VR camera behavior, a first-person control prefab, a unified input API for controllers, advanced rendering features, object-grabbing and haptics scripts for Touch, debugging tools, and more.
- Added cross-platform development support to the Unity Integration. Starting with 1.31 developers can use the Oculus Integration and Utilities to develop VR apps for multiple platforms. Please see the Unity Cross-Platform Development guide for more information.
SetColorScaleAndOffset() to OVRManager. Use
SetColorScaleAndOffset() to apply post-rendering effects to the scene. Additional information can be found in the OVRManager guide.
- 1.31 contains changes to the structure of the Oculus Integration package and includes new assembly definition files (*.asmdef). These files will package the Oculus Utilities scripts into 3 DLLs: Oculus.VR.dll, Oculus.VR.Editor.dll and Oculus.VR.Scripts.Editor.dll. Developers who use their own assembly definitions will need to add references to Oculus.VR.*. Information about how Unity uses assembly definition files can be found in Unity's Script compilation and assembly definition files page.
- The Unity Integration 1.31 contains the following changes to the Oculus Integration for Unity package:
- Update the Oculus Utilities to 1.31
- Update the Platform SDK to 1.31
- Update the Avatar SDK to 1.31
- Update the Audio Spatializer to 1.31
- Added support for Mobile sRGB. This fixes a conversion issue where on Mobile and when the rendering Color Space was set to 'Linear', the resulting scene was overly dark from an improper linear to gamma conversion.
Angular Velocity and Acceleration in the Unity Integration 1.31
Angular velocity and angular acceleration values are reported in 1.31 in degrees, not radians.

General Unity Known Issues
This section details known issues with Unity that are not tied to a specific version. Issues are grouped by most closely related subject.
- Vulkan Quest apps might crash when you select Use Recommended MSAA Level in OVRManager and request audio permissions after the splash screen runs. To overcome this issue, clear Use Recommended MSAA Level check box in OVRManager and manually set the appropriate MSAA level (recommended 4x) in Project Settings > Quality.
- Changing modes in Lipsync_Demo on Oculus Quest is currently not supported.
- Unity has a known issue such that parenting one VR camera to another will compound tracking twice. As a workaround, make them siblings in the GameObject hierarchy.
- Using Unity Universal Render Pipeline will not set the MSAA level automatically.
- If you experience long UI stalls or poor performance with the Unity Editor when targeting Rift on Windows 10, please run Windows Update to ensure that you have the latest version of Windows 10.
- All Unity versions with Oculus runtime 1.17+ and Windows 10 + Creators Update: This combination results in spurious WM_DEVICECHANGE reports in the editor, even in non-VR projects. Many users will notice no impact, but users connected to certain USB devices may find the Editor becomes non-responsive and needs to be terminated from Task Manager. To mitigate, please update to the Beta runtime available on our Public Test channel. We are currently working with Unity and Microsoft on a permanent solution.
- Guardian System API: ovr_SetBoundaryLookAndFeel currently does not take effect if the HMD is not worn when the call is made (e.g., on Start).
- Transparent VR Compositor Layers do not currently support multiple layers of occlusion.
Unity versions 5.1 and later provide built-in VR support for the Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, and Oculus Go. The Unity package includes prefabs, C# scripts, sample scenes, and more to assist with development. For more information, see our Unity Getting Started Guide.
For information on which versions of the Unity Editor are supported, please see Compatibility and Version Requirements.
