I have an Oculus headset and LIV isn't capturing my game; I can't see the chat box or alerts in my headset

Any game that you want to capture with LIV/Streamerkit has to be running in OpenVR. If you are using an Oculus Rift, Oculus Rift S, or an Oculus Quest + Link/Virtual Desktop combo, you will need to force the game you're trying to use into OpenVR mode.

For 99% of cases, this is very easy and all you need to do is add
"-vrmode openvr" to the game's launch options on Steam, as shown in the video below.

(this only works with Unity based games)

For now, games owned on the Oculus Rift Store are not supported and won't work with LIV.
