How to change HTC Tracker to act as a Controller (so it can be viewed in Xplane)

Recommended Posts


I am currently using the Vive pro setup with 2 x controllers and 1 x Vive Tracker.

My goal is to have the Vive Tracker shown in Xplane. I can only get Xplane to show and track the 2 x controllers.

What I want to do is change the Vive Tracker such that it identifies as a "controller" thus enabling me to do as I need. Is there a way to do this? I have tried to 'manage vive trackers' from the 'SteamVr application' however, when this is clicked when selecting a role it shows 'disconnected' down the bottom (as shown in the photo).

If it is not possible to do this without disabling one of the actual controllers then this is okay! I only need to be able to use 1 x controller and 1 x tracker (identify as controller)

Thanks in advance!

@jasper1234 If you would like to setup a tracker as controller, you will need to power off one of the controllers.

The maximum number of controllers is 2, no matter it is 1 controller + 1 tracker or 2 trackers or 2 controllers.

Please refer to this post.
