Zepps Posted December 18, 2019 Share Posted December 18, 2019 (edited) Just recently purchased a Vive Cosmos and I'm having trouble understanding why Viveport and Vive Console automatically launch when I use Steam and launch a VR app. SteamVR 1.9.xx shows me the status of my devices and has some settings I can adjust as does Vive Console. My purchased games show up in steam but also show up in Viveport. Forgive me if I seem perturbed by why force the VivePort ecosystem upon your users without consent just like Microsoft tried forcing Internet Explorer upon windows users many years back. I've invested a lot of $$$ on Steam and Viveport Infinity doesn't include many of the premium VR games as part of it subscription. With the original Vive, it was simply a matter of uninstalling Viveport. The headset and controllers still worked flawlessly with SteamVR. This is not the case with the Cosmos! I've packed up my cosmos and gone back to my original Vive until this mess is sorted and the face plate mod is released. Its a great headset, pity about the software and controller support that HTC provides. Lets hope the HTC will sort this mess out before the Valve Index becomes available in Australia or Oculus enters the premium headset market. Starting to feel I've bought a lemon. A very expensive lemon! I'll be waiting in anticipation. Edited December 18, 2019 by Zepps Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
