Vrchat is a online game that offers a virtual reality social platform. It was released as a standalone application for Windows and Oculus Quest by Graham Gaylor and Jesse Joudrey. Vrchat enables its players to interact with others as 3D character model. In brief, it makes it easier to create and explore virtual reality.
In the recent update, it allowed its player to send custom message while inviting or responding to any invite. If player is a VRC + supporter he/she can attach a photo with the message as well. Coming to the topic, players are facing certain issues, they are as follows :
While playing the screen transforms to a black screen with the quest’s loading symbol for a second. During this period, players can’t even move or hear any audio.
While logging in, the screen goes blank and the user is not able to do anything.
The screen freezes and goes blank after some time
