  1. Not urgent bug report. I have an original Cosmos and this update installed the Vive Guide, Vive Pro Guide, Vive Pro HMD Guide, Vive Cosmos Elite Guide. The only other headset I had was the original Vive but AFAIK everything was cleaned out before installing the Cosmos one year ago. Also in the ..\Updater\Temp\ folder there are downloaded probably useless packages for my Cosmos. A lot of OOBE components that include the above mentioned guides. com.htc.windows.oobe.eye_dk_install.1534319191575 com.htc.windows.oobe.eye_guide.1573711862052 com.htc.windows.oobe.eye_install.1569655993720 com.htc.windows.oobe.eye_install2.1581500169459 com.htc.windows.oobe.launchers.1575862868088 com.htc.windows.oobe.lig_guide.1581492578288 com.htc.windows.oobe.neo_guide.1528971401425 com.htc.windows.oobe.neo_install.1528970855301 com.htc.windows.oobe.neo_install2.1563790655247 com.htc.windows.oobe.other_install2.1563849317856 com.htc.windows.oobe.pro_guide.1556181404798 com.htc.windows.oobe.pro_hmd_guide.1528972970209 com.htc.windows.oobe.pro_hmd_install.1528972633802 com.htc.windows.oobe.pro_hmd_install2.1563791056726 com.htc.windows.oobe.pro_install.1556273716158 com.htc.windows.oobe.pro_install2.1563791455693 com.htc.windows.oobe.software_install.1579247447376 Only the three bolded ones were on the last beta As said not a big deal but it's a waste of bandwidth, disk space and useless links on the Startup menu.
  2. From my personal experience I think there shouldn't be a problem with using multiple codes. I redeemed two 6 months codes and then bought the black friday annual subscription while the first code was still running. My infinity history shows how long each subscription lasts and after I cancelled the automatic subscription everything is still valid.
  3. Known problem with MSI laptops. You need to contact MSI Support and ask them for an updated VBIOS (Video BIOS) for your onboard NVidia card. This will take some time currently due to the season. Until then you can try using an older driver that works with your current VBIOS which I think is 417.71.
  4. @C.T. Rebooted the PC and upon Vive Console starting it detected a failed firmware update and went into recovery mode and flashed the HMD. As far as I can tell everything is working OK now.
  5. @C.T. Did the update and the Vive Console is stuck on updating after 20 minutes: "\App\HID_Manager\HID_Manager_Server.exe" is still running which I think is part of the updating. Close Vive Console and hope for the best or is there any command I could try? Eventually I will have to shut it all down.
  6. Looks like the same problem I had. Cosmos has compatibility issues with some USB3 controllers/drivers. In my case my onboard ASMedia ASM1042 wouldn't initialize one of the USB components of the Cosmos, the VIVE Cosmos Multimedia Audio (USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0314&MI_00) which you too are missing. It would show up as a USB Composite Device as yours does. The problem would persist with the windows default "ASMedia USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller - 0.96 (Microsoft)" and the updated ASMedia Driver. To remedy I bought a PCIE ASMedia USB3 controller based on the AMS2142 chip. With that controller the Cosmos works with the windows default "ASMedia USB 3.1 eXtensible Host Controller - 1.10 (Microsoft)" but not with the updated ASMedia driver. Possible solutions: If your Cosmos is connected on the ASMedia USB3 controller try connecting it on the Intel one. If the Intel doesn't work update its driver. Looks like you are using the updated ASMedia driver (missing "-X.XX (Microsoft)" string), uninstall the ASMedia driver (and keep uninstalling and removing the driver if you had multiple updates) until you get the default Microsoft one. If neither the ASMedia or the Intel controller manages to work with the Cosmos you might have to buy like me a PCIE USB3 controller. Can't recommend any names cause mine was a mislabeled part.
  7. There are some settings that could make things a bit better. Edit the file "c:\ProgramData\HTC\ViveSoftware\ViveVRRuntime\htcvr.vrsettings" with notepad and add to the htcvr section "Contrast" and "Saturation": eg from(might be a bit differen at yours): "htcvr" : { "BringUpDashboard" : true, "ForceRenderBeforeTracking" : false } to: "htcvr" : { "BringUpDashboard" : true, "ForceRenderBeforeTracking" : false, "Contrast" : 0.004, "Saturation" : 1 } 0.004 and 1 are the default values saved at "..\Updater\App\ViveVRRuntime\ViveVR\ViveVRServer\config\default.vrsettings". I am not really sure what ranges are acceptable but with "Contrast" set to -0.1 it should be a bit lighter at dark places. Changes take effect after restarting the Vive Console so close it, edit your values in, save and start it. ViveVRCompositor.exe has signs ("Press / to increase contrast by 0.01", "Press + to increate saturation by 0.01", etc) that you can change your Contrast and Saturation with keystrokes from possibly a debug/developer menu. To the devs, making this functionality available would probably be welcomed from those that have similar problems.
  8. You probably need an updated VBIOS (Video card BIOS) for your onboard video card. You have to contact MSI Support and ask for it as those updates are not publicly available.
  9. @TomCgcmfc AFAIK if he has the common MSI Laptop problem he needs to contact MSI Support to get an updated VBIOS for his onboard graphics card.
  10. @A-Jey You can download the SDK which has a demo that you can see in the videos in the same page. Inside the SDK file find "\ViveHandTracking_0.8.2.zip\Prebuilt samples\ViveHandTrackingSample_Win64.zip", unzip it somewhere and launch ViveHandTrackingSample.exe. Tried it a bit and it recognized my hands/fingers but it wasn't smooth. Looks like early stages or it needs specific lighting.
  11. There is a common problem with Firefox that starts steamvr when you visit sites that have some VR related scripts. Go to about:config, find dom.vr.openvr.enabled and set it to false(default is true). No idea why Firefox still does it after so much time or why sites embed these scripts.
  12. Click on the Black Friday Special, Order details come up, under subtotal there is a Select offer (1) which when clicked there is a 10% off coupon for Infinity members.
  13. @Fink Do you mean a physical store from HTC in Australia? Cause I bought it from the Vive store which is online.
  14. @Fink If you read the reddit post, another one is in a similar position like you. Payed for 1 month and redeemed the code last Friday and got six months. So if you have a promo code you can only get 6 months at the moment. Or are you asking if you can already redeem the code before the 2 months are gone to avoid your 6 months code turning to something smaller?
  15. @jagibson Don't you think that this detail should have been plastered with the code instead of the pretty much useless 12/2021 expiration date. If people knew that their code had around 1 month before it was halved, then they would have activated their code. Did you advertize it in any way or was it a surprise secret rule? And based on what you tell me, there might come a time when this code doesn't activate anything if the site doesn't run a promotion. In that case could you justify that I have an unexpired code that doesn't offer anything? I can't even understand how you think this is acceptable. The whole thing leaves a sour taste in my mouth and just turned me completelly away from Infinity. Congrats, your promotion made me not want to use your service.
