Issue/Describe the bug

Pressing Occulus button while in SteamVR Home causes head tracking to be disabled. When pressed and then exiting the Occulus menu, you go back to SteamVR home but your vision no longer tracks your head and is slightly askew.

 

Version:

Alpha v. 3.7.0

 

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Launch Shadow PC Alpha App
  2. Start in VR Mode and wait for boot into SteamVR
  3. Short press Occulus button on right joystick
  4. Click out of Occulus quick menu

 

Additional Notes

I was able to reproduce this three times in a row and I couldn’t find anything unique about what I was doing. My workaround is to go back to ShadowPC menu and re-enter VR mode.

I tried again today and got a slightly different result. Instead of my head tracking being disabled… it was as if my head became my left hand… and my left hand became my head… It’s hard to describe my hand now tracks my view and my head tracks where my cursor is pointing. Also, the same thing happens in-game (tested in Half-Life: Alyx).

Thank you for your feedback, I have added that to our backlog of investigations to perform.
