Good evening! I'm trying to install Stern Pinball Arcade on a Samsung Gear VR, running off of a Galaxy S9, paired to a gamepad.

When I run, I find myself in a game room, and I can look around, but I can't seem to figure out how to start any of the games...

I saw some screenshots that showed a floating menu. Is that menu supposed to be there when I first run the game? Pressing buttons on the gamepad and the touchpad both fail to bring up any menu...

I had the same problem and fooled around with it for hours. I don't have facebook and they bought Gear VR and you need an account. I assume that was the issue. Such BS to require a FB account.

I think Samsung stopped supporting the VR on their phones.

I am no facebook fan but joined with the bare minimum info just to set up an account.

I use facebook just to search and look up things here and there.

The Oculus Quest first gen is great and I hear the Oculus Quest 2 is even better. Way better then the Samsung and Ps4 vr. They say the Ps5 Vr is coming and a big improvement over the ps4 version.

Like everything, things usually get better with time, on the VR stuff that is.

Hey there! Got a moment?
