Hi. I see everyone using their Vive without seeming problems, and I always have so much trouble that I end up ditching the headset. I really want to be immersed, and using the tools for which HiFi is being created.
I have many problems, but chief among them is the inability to hear from my headset once I put on the Vive. This is a recent problem, as it did not occur until the last two updates.
I set up all the things I want: Mic on, Users.js open, etc. while in regular desktop mode, and then I log out, fire up the VIve, and re-enter HF. At this point, I can’t hear anything from my headset. When I back out, and look at the Audio Settings BOTH Headphones and VIve mic are checked off, but I cannot uncheck the VIve, and the only way to get the check to disappear is to reboot completely!
Then, if I set it up again, I lose sound again. @Menithal mentioned it was a setting in Steam, but I am not sure what that means.
In addition, once I get this fixed, I have other difficulties, especially the inability to access any of the controls on the screen while in the Vive. My laser points overshoots any of the controls, such as toggling the mic, or teleporting by touching the Users.js.
I feel as if I fell asleep during the VIve class.
Thanks for any advice you can offer.
