Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Why does Subsurface Profile cause my Vive pre to have blinders?

Hi All,

My team is having an interesting issue where when we have the new subsurface profile hooked up we get black blinders on the left and right of the lenses. Essentially eliminating peripheral vision on the sides. This doesn't' happen on the Oculus CV1, and we don't have a CV1 Vive to test on...

We have looked around to see if anyone else is experiencing a similar bug but haven't found anyone having this problem. Does anyone know why this might be happening?

Thanks much!

I'm also having this problem on the Vive consumer version. The subsurface profile creates mirror like "blinders" in the peripheries of the HMD. Has anyone else encountered this?
