steamvr not working properly now. Half the time I run steamvr it stays in the white background, others you get into steamvr home, but in both cases, as soon as I click the menu button it crashes and shows the pimax logo, then the pimax space environment.
Tried resetting the computer, headset, pitool, it keeps happening, at this point i’m yet to get steamvr working properly even once, so steamvr home is only usable as long as i don’t try to open the menus with the wands. I’m on 1.0 pitool render res and steam 80% and normal fov, so nothing too extreme imho on my i5 4690k 1080ti.
There some weird stuff happening. In the steamvr home, if you move your head looking at the shadows from the starting point towards the mountains, shadows morph unnaturally as you move your head from left to right, like it’s being rendered incorrectly. It also feels a bit wrong somehow, like the scene is not rendering perfectly fine.
I can start Hellblade from the pitool game menu and it now has some weird some issues. When moving your head fast enough the Hellblade logo ?? appears in the middle of the screen for some reason for an instant, then dissapears. There’s also some extreme color modification at the near center edges of the screen, while the straight center of the screen is fine. This color issue doesn’t happen in the steamvr home though.
Low brightness mode is cool though, blacks are better, but not worth the price of broken steamvr.
Hibernation mode works, if I leave the headset 1 minute idle the screen turns off, really nice and could help improve the fog issue turning it on and leaving it idle for a few minutes for the screens to get warmer.
I’m an idiot and should have stayed away from this update since 1.91 worked fine, but the brightness and hibernation update was too tempting, now i have a ton of new issues.
update: Switched to steamvr beta, issue still happens, actually just turning the wand on crashes steamvr home to the pimax logo and gives a nice “steamvr has encountered a critical error” message on windows.
update 2: Tried to set brightness to normal, pitool to 0.75, still crashing as soon as i turn on the wands.
