Advanced Options

These options are more advanced and designed to help creators debug issues with their creations.

There are several launch options available for VRChat.

If you are using Steam, you can set these easily in the Properties for VRChat, found by right-clicking on VRChat's entry in your game list. After clicking Properties, click on Set Launch Options, then put your desired launch options in.

If you are using Oculus, you must create a shortcut to the VRChat executable. After launching Oculus Home, launch this shortcut by clicking its icon. The Oculus launcher does not support launch options natively.
