This happened a few times in the recent days.
What happens is that I start Hifi, and it starts out loading extremely sluggish with the loading time in Oculus very long. At some point, it “somehow” gets into the interface, you hear voices but the image is frozen and you can’t move, basically the software has frozen and you cannot proceed.
The only way to actually get into interface is then by starting sandbox, forcing it out from “Oculus mode” and into desktop. And then from the sandbox “go to home”. Then it loads and you can switch back to Oculus oce it loaded (Of course this is a mere trick/workaround).
I had the impression it’s a server issue and not client problem, but just guessing here.
I am not the only one who experienced this because I had other people on social VR randomly ask me whether I know HiFi because they have the same problem with logging in. Said differently: At times, currently, some people cannot log in.
Also (after login), I often sink/fall into the floor first.
Edit: This just in addition and probably not related to this problem, at times I notice crazy high CPU usage of HiFi in Taskmanager (I have a 4770k CPU), like 50% in Windows10 64bit. This seems crazily high to me. (Because I am assuming that HighFi only uses a max of 2 CPU cores (?), and when it shows 50% in taskmanager it means these 2 cores (from 4) are basically entirely maxed out.
FPS “in game” are also at times less than optimal (depending, people online, number of objects etc.)…but is often going to the point that I see the artifacts from Oculus ASW kicking in, and this only happens when an app/game has really poor FPS so that ASW (the Oculus rendering tech which boosts FPS to 90) needs to work more than it can handle. With then then also comes sluggishness of menus, tracking in HighFi etc…etc… so general performance drop all-around.
