Only Download Updates when App is Open
I don't like that the Oculus software will download updates in the background any time it wants, even when the app isn't open. The developers seem to assume that no one does anything with their PCs other than play Oculus games. But I could be playing a non-VR or non-Oculus game when it starts a download, or I might need my full internet bandwidth for something else. Stopping the service is an effective workaround but this is tedious and requires unofficial addons like Oculus Tray Tool or batch files.
Steam already works the way I want - it does nothing unless the Steam app is actually running. And when you start up the Steam app it immediately queues all available updates, rather than scheduling them at random times.
Yeah. All software needs to move to this model.
Adobe Cloud? I’m not using photoshop this week. Don’t run don’t update don’t be a background task. When I want you - I’ll come me get you.
