So I've been playing on my Oculus Quest headset using Virtual Desktop with Shadow. I have a cheap old laptop and I normally play alot of VRchat PC mode.

 

What hardware should I look into for trying body tracking with Shadow VR? Is this doable? 

 

Anyone with any backdoor tricks or crazy ways to get full body tracking with shadow VR?

I do not believe it is possible as those devices are likely too complex for Shadows current USB over IP capabilities.

Thanks Lily, we actually spoke about this on discord after I posted this, I am Murmurs. 

 

Kinect 2.0 uses USB 3.0 and requires 5 gigs of bandwidth, way over the basic plans allocated 100 MB Shadow uses. However I think Xbox 360s Kinect could be used. Sadly I am not going that route.

I saw someone saying the steam controller dongle works with shadow's usb passthrough. This makes me think that it will work if the dongle is flashed as a steam vr dongle and paired with trackers and lighthouses. I intend to try this in the next month or so.

The dongles are glorified bluetooth dongles , so bandwidth shouldn't be an issue if bluetooth dongles work
