If you are a virtual reality enthusiast, you may have heard of Revive – a software that allows users to play Oculus Rift games on other VR headsets. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of using Revive with Valve Index.

Step 1: Install SteamVR and Revive

Before using Revive with Valve Index, make sure to install SteamVR on your computer. Once installed, download and install the latest version of Revive from the official website.

Step 2: Launch SteamVR and Revive Dashboard

After installing both SteamVR and Revive, launch SteamVR from your computer’s desktop. Once launched, you should see the SteamVR dashboard in your headset. From here, navigate to the bottom-right corner of the dashboard and click on “Revive Dashboard” to launch it.

Step 3: Launch Oculus Rift Game

With the Revive Dashboard launched, you can now browse through your Oculus game library and select a game to play. Simply click on the game you want to play and wait for it to load. Once loaded, put on your Valve Index headset and start playing.

Step 4: Customizing Controls

In some cases, you might need to customize controls for games that don’t support Valve Index controllers by default. To do this, open up the Revive Dashboard by pressing the system button located on your controller.

From there, select “Revive Settings” and then “Controller Bindings”. Here, you can customize controls for each game according to your preference.


  • Make sure that both SteamVR and Revive are up-to-date.
  • If a game doesn’t work properly with Valve Index controllers or display issues arise while playing with Revive, try launching the game from the Revive Dashboard instead of SteamVR.
  • Disable any third-party software that may interfere with Revive’s functionality


Using Revive with Valve Index is a great way to expand your gaming options and access Oculus Rift games on your headset. With this tutorial, you should be able to install and use Revive with SteamVR and Valve Index without any issues. Happy gaming!
