PiTool information locations?

I was hoping that one of you guys who are digging into the PiTools could tell me a couple of things?
I’m looking for:

  1. Is there a way to change the timeout settings for the controllers?
  2. Where does PiTool keep it’s list of games? (I found the icons, but not the list) Can we manually add or manipulate this at all? -I know about the “import” button, but I’d like to be able to see or manipulate the results.
  3. Is there a way to replace the “Pimax” home? Preferably with an environment created in Unity or UnReal4?
  4. not quite on topic but I’d still like to know: how would I create a desktop shortcut that would launch VR games thru PiTools? Right now, they start up SteamVR without Pimax, so they promptly crash. Also, how about a shortcut string for Oculus games?

Thanks for any info you’ve got!

I would check Github on pitool source.

As for Controller timeout did find some in steamvr settings.

Other things have to look more.

To make shortcut string for oculus game you have to call OVR_Launcher_x64.exe before like “C:\Program Files\Pimax\Plugin\OCSupport\OVR_Launcher_x64.exe” E:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\DiRT Rally\drt.exe.

Tips: you can launch most Unreal Engine game without steamvr (doesn’t require parallel projection and work with FFR) but for this you have to check if steam doesn’t add “-novr” parameter. To avoid that, I close steam before launching the game (don’t forget to add ‘-vr’ in the steam app launching parameters).


Thank you! I was wondering what the executable for the Pimax was!
