Cross-posting here because I’m not sure where the problems comes from. The interactions between Nolo software, Pitool and STeam VR are complex so we can’t guess.
Some time ago I had a brief period where the CV1 seemed to work quite good (after already lots of problems), but it didn’t last long. Now I’m quite fed up of the problems and I’m thinking of replacing at least the controllers or even everything, but I’d prefer not losing the picture & FOV of the 5K+.
Seeing on MRTV yesterday that the Artisan was going to use the same station and controllers than the CV1 gave me a very little hope that things still can be sorted out.
I have 3 problems at the moment:
Cables interference between the Pimax cable and the headset marker cable (the 4m supplied with the CV1). If the cables are too close, the tracking starts to behave erratically. If I pull the Nolo cable away from the Pimax cable, back to normal. Very annoying since it’s difficult to keep the cables completely separated in a gaming session (not even talking about room scale, even sitting on a chair).
Not sure how I could reasonably fix this, would need a super shielded 4m micro usb cable maybe. Didn’t find one yet, and no answer yet in the Nolo forum where I posted this a few days ago. Anyone with a 5K+ and a CV1 also experiencing this?
Completely unstable positioning. Yesterday I started a game of Guns’n Stories, which looks great on the Pimax. I could play for a few minutes (as usual), then boom, I was suddenly flipped backwards in the game although I was still facing physically the base station (playing in a chair) and there was nothing I could do about this, game over. This happens quite frequently, completely killing the VR experience. Not sure if it could be related to the previous problem, possible.
Very often too, the right controller “jumps” behind me, this can happen randomly in game or at next startup of Steam VR, again completely killing the current VR session. If I quit the game, it remains like this in Steam VR home. I have to switch everything off, redo a room setup, and maybe it works again. Only does this with the right controller.
Double clicking the controller system button to recalibrate does not solve the issue.
To make it short, I’ve simply never have been able to really enjoy my VR setup up to now. Even when I thought it was working, it was because I did only very short sessions during initial VR discovery.
It seems to be a software issue, but is it in Nolo software, Steam VR software or Pimax software, I have no idea. For sure, it doesn’t work properly.
Everything ( Nolo firmwares, Nolo home, Pitool, 5K+ firmware, Steam VR etc…) is at the latest level. Whatever the issue is, they’d better fix this for the Artisan, although the 1st problem should not occur with a single cable.
