unfortunately my problems are still not solved after reading the solutions from similar problems. Main problem are the base station.
Tracking the base stations stays a neverending problem. I also wrote to support and hope to get help from them.
my pc: I9-7900X, Geforce RTX 2080 TI, Windows 10 Pro
my problems still are:
pimax itself runs ok when put base stations of in Pitool. I can play some
games without any basestation, but i have quite a big drift in view while playing. The whole screen infront of me mostly changes more and more to the right (sometimes more then 90 degrees in about 20 minutes playing time). I dont know if that is normal when playing without bases?
but the main problem is the tracking of my two base stations. I can’t get the base stations run correctly. With my vive pro they both were complety OK.
If i connect and start everything when power on my PC I normally have no bases recognised as connected and not tracked. Or get the message “place the helmet in a visible…”
Very strange: Only If I have no devices connected (no pimax, no bases (power supply of)). Then starting Pitool: then connecting pimax and bases and power on controllers (only when doing these steps exactly), sometimes everything is shown is ready and tracked in Pitool. But 90 % of time the bases only come alive when power on the controllers? If i let controllers of, no bases seen? Power on controllers: Bases com alive and also automatically steamvr. A few times I was lucky to get over it to do a complete room scale in pimax and steam with this trick.
But the room scale in pitool in steam even than was completely wrong.
In room scale the pimax was located very clos to one base station and could not be moved in the middle of the room? (See picture).
The controllers and headset are way of and i am standing outside the cage and can’t go in it, even the floor is too low or much to high. I see the controllers and can move them, but their directions show to the opposite sides. After reboot oder pc restart everything is lost again and not working. Only my trick helped to somestimes come a step further.
I guess that the bases and controllers still search for my old vive pro (updated in the past over bluetooth) and are somehow in conflict with hidden saved files in steam or pimax although i have deleted vive files and have all cables disconnected?
So far i only deleted and reinstalled pitool and steam on the easy way. Perhaps there are files in both, which must be deleted manually in others folders oder directories on the pc to get rid of conflicting old vive files perhaps for the base stations? Or are there optionsor settings in steam or somewhere else where i can change something or where migh be somthing wrong adjusted?
As I am not a big expert in solving these problems a friend of mine helped me and we tried so far the following steps to solve the problems but without success.
- a friend of mine helped me to reinstall windows 10 Pro,
- new install of steam and Pitool (V18.104.22.168), headset V22.214.171.124 several times
- disconnecting all old vive software
- Pitool dianose everything is ok
- Meanwhile there i also tried restart piservicelauncher.exe in task manager and deleted the files in lighthouse folder as recommended in the forum (after reinstall windows they are there) and looked up for other solutions in the posts
- resetting steamVR USB devices
- energy management on full power for USB ports (power saving of computer of)
- new drivers on graphic card etc.
- Using different USB and DP ports
- mostly i try to you normal steamvr not the beta version or is that better
I hope someone has some good ideas what the problem might be and how to solve it?.What else can i try? I even heard of help over teamspeak by support or changing serial number of the base stations if it gets complicated?
Thank you very much in advance.
