Hi there

Do I really need this Tobii VR runtime to run in the background ("C:\Program Files (x86)\Tobii\Tobii VRU02 Runtime\platform_runtime_VR4U2P2_service.exe") ??

I don't want to use any eye tracking system (has I have any with a simple Vive Pro 2 headset along with my old Valve Index lighthouses and controllers ??)

You should give your customers the choice to let run software they really need...


Thank you..

After a lot of tests i was able to eliminate those vertical scanlines, i had to do everything possible like reinstal steamvr, vive console and reset all usb a lot of times, then go back to the non beta branch of vive console to get the hmd work well again.

i tried to re update to last beta and scan lines comes again, so its definitely something related to last version of the software, because re doing all passages and going back to non beta fixes this issue.
