[Solved] Boneworks & The Major Bug Within The Vive Cosmos

Recommended Posts

Hello dear reader! (And VIVE Employees!)

 

It has come to my attention that in the game Boneworks. The glitch of flying out of the map with a windy screen is not on the developers of the game, Stress Level Zero's fault. After I talked with developers of Boneworks, this glitch is not fixable on their part. Instead, it is on VIVEPORT'S part. For some reason the software of VIVEPORT wants to fling your character 10,000 meters away from the origin point where you respawn, thus causing you to go into an endless void with wind noises. A quote from one of the developer's was "the vive cosmos was reporting a starting location of (0, 0, 10,000) meaning the viveport tracking setup is bugged by ten thousand meters on the z axis". Apparently this problem is present because Boneworks uses a different style of tracking that is called skeletal system tracking (I think it has to do with the special physics of your character within the game). It has been the lack of compatibility on VIVEPORT's end with SteamVR, so in order to fix this problem, VIVEPORT just needs to update their system to accept this skeletal system tracking. Hopefully my explanation was good enough, I'm trying my best to explain the situation, but some concepts I may have not nailed one-hundred percent. Please correct me if needed.    


   




To the Employees at VIVE. Have you guys noticed this problem before, for the VIVE Cosmos? If so, how is the progress on the compatibility of this Skeletal System Tracking?

Also here is my output log of the error. Hopefully this helps!

I was thinking of buying this game, how much of it is unplayable with this bug?

It can be frustratingly unplayable. Sometimes it won't load at all. Sometimes you'll play for a while, get close to a wall and then POOF you fly out of the map into the "windy deadzone". Back when the game first came out and there was no checkpoints, you can imagine the frustration of playing a level for an hour and then having all of that nullified because you flew out of the world. Sometimes it works, most times it doesn't. Your mileage may vary though.

@Wearied Thanks for sharing this information! Your explanation was very clear, but I do have one question to clarify specifically on the terminology. Viveport is the app store so I'm a bit confused as to how it could be in the same conversation as tracking.. unless you're referring to the vive console, which is the software that tracks the Vive Cosmos (like SteamVR). Let me know if this was a mix up or it is actually viveport that you think is causing this.

Nonetheless, I'll prepare a report to send to Eng team. Thank you

Steve

There's one beta option you can find through vive console settings -> advanced section.
