what is up you guys? today we are going to do a little quick how to video. installing sidequest and sideloading games as well as pavlov vr because its a little bit different alright, so first thing you want to do is make sure you have developer mode on your headset turned on so you will want to go into the link in the description sign up with oculus to be a “developer” just give them a made up name that you want to call your studio that you are “developing at” then go into the app on your phone and turn it on from there.
i should have a video helping with the visual representation of this too. from there developer mode should be turned on which is fantastic plug your headset into your computer plug one end into the headset and the other into your computer and then in the headset you will have to hit accept or or allow or something that tells your headset yes this computer is allowed to put files on there and take files off of it.
so once you have allowed it through your headset you will want to go onto your computer and click the second link in the description and download sidequest sidequest is a program that streamlines all of the sideloading and everything so all you have to do for games that arent supported on sidequest you just drag and drop the APK file into sidequest with your quest attached to your computer and it will take care of the rest go down below and grab sidequest and you’re going to install it and makesure the headset is connected to your computer with developer mode on and then up at the top corner somewhere, there you should see a little connected sign once it is all set up and everything.
from there you litterally just pick what you want to install on it, there is a pretty good library now on sidequest and you just install. you go open the page and go over and hit “install latest” version NOW time for pavlov pavlov is a little bit different because you dont just drag and drop an APK file otherwise i would just leave it there.
pavlov what you want to do is go to the other link in the description and join the pavlov discord to grab the latest update of the game and install that to your computer it will install as a zip drive so firtly you will want to extract it so you will go, right click-extract all.
.. whatever however YOU do it open that extracted file up and with your headset still connected to your computer open the install file inside the extracted folder once you hit install you should see a command prompt screen let it do its thing and at the bottom left hand corner there will be a % of completion let it finish once its finished you can close everything and unplug your headset alright, i dont think im forgetting anything thankyou very much for coming by subscribe for more, and il see you next time
