So for almost One and a half years now (I think) I’ve been having this absolutely annoying problem with my “In game” Social list and Notifications.
Now I have no idea when exactly this started but it’s been consistent ever since.
To walk down the problem. I join VRchat and everything works as indented for about 30 min - 1 hour. After that everything stops updating.
This includes Friends coming online or going offline, Friends moving to different worlds, Friends Changing online Status (aka green, yellow, red), Friends Sending Invite Request/Accepts/Reply’s, Me sending request/accepts/Reply’s, Friend Requests, Public Instance’s not changing player count, new Public Instance’s.
The only reason why / When I notice that it’s frozen is when I cross check with the Website (VRChat - Home).
I’ve been using the Website as my main source up Social updates. like if I get Invite Requests, or Friend requests.
Now to get a Temporary fix, I’ve been Restarting my game every time. so to avoid doing that I’ve had to either know from the start where I wanna meet with Friends and users. or if we moved to other worlds I’d had to ask my friends to drop a portal. which has been working alright. but at this point it’s just getting annoying and tedious.
I’ve tried the usual “quick” fixes. like Reinstalling VRchat (did that countless times), also tried using Open Betas to see if stuff might be fixed there. also moved The games installation to a different drive.
I’ve also tried To Disable the IPv6 Protocol on my pc (as I’ve seen it being a solution to others users similar problems).
Also talked with a bunch of People, seeing if others had the same problem or if they might know a solution.
But so far nothing has worked. and none of the updates has fixed this problem either.
