MWilliamGoody2303 Posted February 8, 2018 Share Posted February 8, 2018 (My ongoing issue in my other post is seperate to this. I've been having this issue for a while as well, but have been distracted with the other one) I'm having a strange problem with the tracking where when I hold either of the controllers in (what seems to be) direct view of either of the base stations, they will jump or 'wobble' up and down. This happens with both base stations. Some strange things to note: 1.) I'm not certain, but it seems to be when my body is occluding the view of the other base station, but what's even stranger is that I've tried only using one base station but the problem is still there. (I've tried both individually). 2.) Even if I change the rotation of the base stations, the area that the wobble happens in seems to be exactly the same, which makes no sense to me. 3.) I've tried covering up anything that could potentially reflect in the room (there was hardly anything anyway), and it hasn't helped. Additionally, it didn't alter the severity of the problem in any way, so I think reflections are not part of the problem. 4.) My headset tracking is absolutely perfect. This is only a controller problem (yet again, just like my first issue in my other thread. 5.) This was happening before I got a new Vive bundle via an exchange, so it's not a hardware problem. 6.) If I bring my controllers closer to the base stations, it gets progressively worse. If it's right in front of it, the controllers shake a lot. It only really happens if I'm pointing the top of the controller towards it though. Maybe that's why the change in rotation I mentioned earlier made no difference - because it just doesn't like the top of the controller, maybe? 7.) I've tried switching to USB 2.0. 8.) The Vive camera has always been turned off. 9.) I normally have bluetooth on, but switching it off does nothing. 10.) I've cleaned the base stations, but as I said, the problem was there with my old Vive as well. 11.) I must have run Room Setup a hundred times at this point. 12.) The plastic film has been removed since I got the Vive. 13.) I've updated my chipset and USB drivers. 14.) I've flashed the BIOS to update to the latest version. There are a lot of things I'm forgetting because my mind is just fried right now; I've been consumed with trying to fix these problems for the past month, and It's really beginning to irritate me now. Final question: Is this normal behaviour? I'm sure it can't be, based off what others have said online, but I'm really not sure. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
