Adjusting The Oculus Headset to Fit Your Mug
Comfortable Fit: After you've unboxed the VR headset, next you'll want to adjust the headset to fit your unique mug. If you wear glasses, you'll want to put on the headset from the front of your head first. Check out this video for tips!
Connecting To Your Wifi
Using Quest 2 requires Wi-Fi. No worries, setting that up is easy!
Press the Oculus button on your right Touch controller, which brings up the universal menu. Then, point at the clock on the left side of the menu, which pulls up the Quick Settings panel. Next, choose Wi-Fi, toggle it on, and pick the network you want to connect to. Then enter the password using the pop-up keyboard. Finally, select Connect.
Basic Oculus Controls
The controllers include a pair of thumbsticks and analog triggers that will feel familiar to many. Below are a few general things to know about these buttons on Horizon Worlds:
- Thumbstick: Use your thumbsticks to navigate around virtual environments.
- Triggers: The trigger on the front of both controllers, and the A and X buttons, lets you select objects. The B and Y buttons bring you back to the previous screen or menu.
- Oculus button: Pressing the Oculus button pops up the universal menu. Holding the button recenters your view.
- Grip button: Pressing the Grip button on the side of the controller makes a fist or grasps objects with your virtual hand.
Set Your Guardian
Quest 2 requires setting up Roomscale in Guardian, which defines a safe play boundary. You can also use Quest 2 in Stationary Mode and play seated or standing still. Check out the video to learn more.
