please stop leaving the game because of low controller batteries
As a Elite Dangerous gamer I don’t need the controllers. But every time when the batteries of the controllers becomes low I get a notification which left the game and turn to oculus Home. I’ve lost some high end PvP event cause of this situation.
My Idea: let the Oculus software tell you once inside the headset without leaving the game that the batteries are low.
I’ve noticed in Star Wars Squadrons (that now runs fine after hours of tweaking) freezes and the crashes to the desktop when a battery low notification pops up. Maybe it’s the additional performance headroom required to run the overlay but it’s incredibly frustrating. Please oculus give us an option to disable all notifications. If I wanted to know the battery I would check the dashboard before going into the game.
So, is there a solution for this yet? Playing iRacing here too! This post has nearly a year, enough time for a solution eh?

Yup, playing sim racing games with the oculus rift s also triggers stuff when your headset leaves your head for a few seconds - controller/ guardian warnings all the time and I need neither as I'm seated using a wheel

its really hand when u got a notification before u start playing so you don't die cause the controllers died

Yeah iRacing here too, ruined two races so far - the races can be long so unless I put batteries in before every race - I don;t know a solution... Either add an option to never show low batteries, so just popup without leaving the game as above.

Same problem in Iracing. Controllers aren't being used, so you bring up a full screen popup that requires a controller button to be pressed to avoid it. DUMB.
Provide an option to ignore all battery warnings or dont make them full screen. If you are actually using a controller you will know when your battery is dead. And if you aren't you just ruined a game.
