OpenVR Driver 1.0.0 not working

Post by DamienD » Fri May 24, 2019 3:55 am

Hi everyone,

Has anyone managed to make the OpenVR Driver 1.0.0 work?
I followed the instructions, and I get the Tracker "T" icon in SteamVR.
However, I can't get the headset to move in Unity even though I can make it move if I use a rigidbody instead.
So I could use a rigidbody, that would be fine (I guess?) but in that case I would need to find a way to make the Vive headset display the video stream (currently it is gray all the time, like when the tracking has been lost).

Please help!

Some screenshots:

OpenVR (Desktop) from the Unity Package Manager: 1.0.5
SteamVR Unity plugin: 2.2.0
SteamVR software version: tested with 1.3.23 and 1.14.18
Unity version: 2018.3.14f1
Motive version: 2.1.1 Final
Optitrack OpenVR Driver: 1.0.0

Go to Project Settings > Player > XR Settings

Ensure that your Virtual Reality SDK is set to "OpenVR" and that it occupies the top slot of your HMD list. (That is the priority order)
