  1. Hello everyone, new cosmos user here. Does anyone else here find that crouching down (especially with the headset facing the ground) completely messes up tracking? My tracking is completely unusable when I crouch, and still messed up for about 20 seconds after.I find myself completely unable to play stealth games such as Budget Cuts, or play other multiplayer games stealthily because of this. Is there a fix? Or is this just another Cosmos tracking error that I'm going to have to wait months for a patch.
  2. I want to get the position of the headset in order to decide if someone nodded or shaked his/her head. Anyone has any idea how I get the position data/values of the headset? Do I need any specific gameObjects?
  3. Hello everybody, I am developing a simple VR scenario in UNREAL ENGINE 4 which extrapolates the orientation data from the VIVE TRACKER (2018) and I am trying to understand how the device (and in general the tracking process) is actually working. My first question is purely technical: does the VIVE TRACKER implement an inertial sensor to obtain the orientation of the device? If yes there is any specification on the marginal errors or drift effect? The second question is for those of you that works in UE4 and concerns the reference system of the TRACKER. While it is clear the ori
  4. Hello there. The Cosmos says that my Room is not bright enough, i tried everything to make my room Brighter. On the Rift S i could play at Night. Can you Change the Cameras brightness or something? Cause i really want to play when its dark outside, cause i can only play when the Sun is still out. I hope someone has a solution to that problem! Cya!
  5. Hello. I need help with my controllers, they don't track traffic. Tried unpairing, disable and enable, uninstall and install SteamVR + Vive, install software on another computer, driver updates, computer format. Nothing works, the controllers are still fully charged, paired correctly (green light), but it gets information that the controllers are not tracking movement. I have HTC Vive Cosmos Elite, 2x Base Stations 2.0, 2x HTC Controller (gray) - All new from the store.
  6. Hello, I purchased Vive Cosmos about a week ago. All of my previous HMDs were Oculus, so I had some initial minor setbacks with steam vr, attempitng to use revive, etc. My main issue with the headset now though is the tracking. I get regular warnings, "Your environment is dark" and "learn how to improve your tracking" etc, and my main issues with the tracking are: 1. My hands seem to jigger, shake and change position constantly. Especially visible in Blade and Sorcery, I put the controller at arms length in front of me, and the hands and arms change position slightly every second or
  7. I read somewhere (not sure in Reddit or here) that someone experience that tracking under bright white light is somehow worse than a dimmer, warmer (yellower) light. I use Cosmos in the living room, where my ceiling lights can switch between different modes. So after reading that, I try to switch to a different light mode. And there I have it, super sweet accurate aiming! In case your lights can switch into night mode too, please try it. Or if you don't know if your lights can do so, try switching it on and then off quickly a few times. Feel free to share your exper
  8. Hello. Because of my room environment, I mounted the VIVE BaseStations(2.0 / 4ea) upside-down. So, the LEDs of basestations face to the floor Now. After the STEAMVR Room Calibration, only two of basestations seem to be in place in VR. The others seem to be connected to STEAMVR, but they are not in place in VR. Do I have to make sure to mount the basestations upright?
  9. so we got an cosmos elite bundle, we got a face plate coming and the elite headset stand alone are we going to get a face plate bundle? Because that's a lot of individual tech early adopters to the cosmos series have to buy to improve their tracking experience particularly if you don't own a vive og. If the cosmos elite bundle is $1699(aud) and a cosmos without a face plate is about $750 (the elite headset $1099 minus the face plate $349) so $1699 - $750 = $949 worth of needed tech, purchasing theses separately from the store is over $1,148.96 + what ever the converter cable costs( face plate
  10. Hi all, I've had the Cosmos for about a week now, and am having some issues with the controller tracking + room setup. The initial setup was mostly fine, and the Headset and Controllers worked okay for the first day or two; not perfect but about what I expected from inside-out tracking. After that, the controller tracking began to drop out frequently, at first they would re-sync after several seconds but that time has taken longer and longer (to the point where it could take several minutes of waving the controllers in front of the HMD to get tracking back.) Often, the only way
  11. I got my Vive roughly two weeks ago, and have already come across an issue. Starting two/three days ago, upon connecting the power, the light turns green. Good. Then, upon starting up any program, the light goes red, and the display remains black. However, looking through SteamVR's VR view, the tracking is running flawlessly. leaving the headset perfectly still for a while prompts the screen back into life, but moving it shuts it down again. I have: Checked all cables are secure. Updated AND rolled back windows and drivers Attempted various methods of restarting the computer, St
  12. Went to beta release last night 1.0.10.4 to check and see if the tracking is improved, can confirm it is not! The headset will not track my hands when playing boxing games, the boxing gloves drift in front of my vision obscuring what I can see. The tracking is also way too slow, when the HMD looses tracking of the controller often times when it reorients the gloves it's too slow and I miss my target. There is also too much drift in this HMD device, this is especially noticeable when playing games and standing still. Both the controllers and the HMD drift when standing sti
  13. So due to the way the vive cosmos tracks the hand controllers, pretty much every Archery game experience is awful now. The sniper games are awful as well. When I go to use the bow or sniper rifle, it loses accurate tracking because i'm so close to my face. Using the other two HTC VR headsets, this was not an issue. Both were excellent experiences. However, to play archery and use a bow properly, i can't find a way for this to work. Any suggestions?
  14. Hi folks ! When I run Room setup and pull triggers, i need to scan my surroundings. My problem is that "Scanning" is stuck at 0% no matter where i look. It happened after last update (approx 2 hours ago) and I can't continue. Help me please
  15. I received the Cosmos on Friday, set it up and played a few hours with it and everything went perfectly. Yesterday, I went to use it but couldn't get the cosmos to track at all. Its almost as if the cameras wont turn on. Doing room setup just shows a black screen behind the instructions and if I follow instructions it gets to the scanning phase and then stays there at 0%. While Room Setup is running SteamVR says headset and controllers are tracking but when room setup isn't running they flash not tracking. On the VIVE Console, they are always not tracking. I've tried the "reset headset an
  16. Hello folks, I am running into a problem interfacing with the OpenVR SDK when using two trackers with one controller. Specifically, the IVRCompositor::WaitGetPoses( ) function will sometimes return incorrectly transformed matrices to my C++ application. I was wondering if anyone has experienced a problem like this before, or if there is a known solution. The scenario: I place two VIVE trackers about 1 foot apart from one another, facing the same direction. I would expected that the matrices of each tracker (stored in TrackedDevicePose_t -> mDeviceToAbsoluteTracking) will be very s
  17. Hi, I try to install the plugin of ViveHandTracking but doesnt work. When started the Engine Unreal 4.20 or 4.22 appear this mesages that could not be compile and try rebuilding from source manually. I try to install in Unreal 4 and use Vive pro. What i can do ?
  18. Hopefully this isn't a duplicate So I purchased 3 Vive Trackers a few months ago or so and everything seemed to be fine until recently. I've noticed when I'm in the SteamVR home area (Where you can look at settings, desktop and steam) I keep seeing the tracker around my waist freaking out. For example: tracker starts to float away, tracker starts to show signs of vibration and shaking a lot when standing completely still, etc. It's only the one that I put around my waist. I've seen that covering the tracker completely makes it behave that way but it still happens regardless. Things I've
  19. My new issue, Loss of tracking , so floating image in the cosmos then grey image, and the headset is crashing and needs to restart any idea? @stvnxu
  20. There has been quite a bit of speculation on the types of cameras used on the Cosmos. Windows Mixed Reality and Oculus headsets reportedly use IR cameras, while the Cosmos uses RGB cameras. IR cameras are known for better low light performance. Many report poor exposure and dynamic range with the Cosmos RGB cameras while using them as a passthrough, which may explain why the headset has so much trouble with lighting conditions. If the root problem is the type of cameras used, then this can't be solved by software fixes, correct? Is there anything the team can say to assuage worries that core p
  21. SDK contains methods to check eyes blinking state: Is there some way to track each eye position separately? For now, the result is "combined": @Corvus
  22. 1. The inside out tracking of the Focus relies on the cameras to sense edges and distinct points in the environment. A mono-colored wall or a non-textured environment does not make for good tracking conditions. The best tracking will come from an environment that has plenty of distinct points to track against on the floor, ground, and ceiling. 2. Ensure that the environment has adequate lighting (not too dim or direct sunlight). 3. The sweet “focus” spot of the Focus is in the center of the lens. It is recommended to keep the Focus adjustment dial tight (yet comfortable) on your h
  23. In order to build for the Focus Plus you will need to integrate your apps with the Wave SDK. For more information about Focus and Wave development check out our Vive Developer Resources Site.
