    TrackIR and launching thru Oculus

    I've been using the Oculus workaround to get my headtracking system to register properly since the last patch. As of today, Steam throws up an error at launch informing me that the Oculus launch option doesn't recognize my 'headset' (naturally, as I don't have one). I can bypass this message and the game does start with TrackIR support, but it's just another stumble in the launch process. When should we be expecting a fix for the whole TrackIR/VR issue?

    Try the HTC launch mode, no errors at launch here. I have no Oculus or Vive either.

    The Vive mode has never worked for my setup, and still doesn't. Oculus worked fine as of yesterday, now it's borked..

    Well, full-disclosure first: I'm not actually running TiR (see sig). But the situations I've been facing since the last patch have been pretty widely discussed among actual TrackIR users. I assume you're running patch 11?

    I am on latest patch. I did notice you on FreeTrack after I posted previously. Oculus doesn't work for me, just HTC mode.,but it did work at one time, not sure why it stopped working and HTC did. One of life's little mysteries.
    I did try starting up plain pCars mode earlier tonight, TrackIR did not work.

    Hmmm. Maybe I'll do a profile wipe and see if that clears it; has been a while.

    EDIT: my PCars profile is very old and running, so i think its not the problem.

    Follow-up: Tossed my old graphicsconfigdx11.xml file (along with the oculus one) and rebuilt my settings. Headtracking still doesn't work unless I launch in Oculus mode, and I still get the 'unsupported headset' message using that option.

    Normally I'd be looking into launch parameters to autoselect Oculus mode (does one exist?), but that error message would likely get in the way anyway.
