Starting game starts Steam VR?

EDIT: I solved my original issue pretty quick. I'm leaving the original post for context. Anyway, I just had to take a peak in .../Engine/Binaries/ThirdParty in the game's folder and delete the OpenVR folder. It seems to work fine now, but I suggest to the dev that you remove OpenVR from the packaged files to prevent issues for anyone else who owns a Vive.

Original post: For some reason whenever I try to launch the game, Steam seems to insist that Steam VR should launch with it, even tho I'm not launching it thru Steam. Then when I close Steam VR, the game closes too. I didn't see anything about this being a VR game, and even if it it isn't outputting to my headset, but I don't know how to tell Steam that. It also launches in a window about the size of my entire screen, but with big areas of black to the right and left, and a zoomed in view of the quit and options buttons in the middle. I really want to try this game out, but it's literally unplayable in this state. Any help would be appreciated...


Hi there,

I'm glad you were able to solve your issue, I'll repackage and re-upload the game when I get a chance. Thanks for the info!

Thanks for your interest in Halcyon and I hope you enjoy the game.
