4 Sensors? - Tracking issues? - Log your details here

Everyone with 4 sensors,
Can you please post logs here and detail your setup like I have below?
The aim of this is not to bitch or moan, but give as much detail to the dev team as possible, I don't suggest we alter our setups, but instead give a true reflection of how we are using our rift.
I will be uploading logs after each gaming session, please do the same.

@cybereality,
Can you pass these on to the devs please? if there is any more detail required then please let us know.
As with most people that have 4 sensors i've got a small tracking issue.
on first run it's relatively flawless (but only because i have all 4 on usb 3.0)
After that it gets a little choppy (as in if you take off the headset or what have you).
It's not game breaking but dam annoying.

You will see in the logs the difference I'm sure.

The only reason i get a little bit of glitching and not the ridiculus loss of frames is because I have OVRserver_x64 priority set to real time (permanenty set using Process Hacker 2). Without that it would be unplayable.

Set up is as follows:

SensorPostitionExtentionUSB Slot
HMDHead ;)2m usb 3.0 passive extentioninateck card USB 3.0
sensor 1front left3m usb 3.0 passive extentioninateck card USB 3.0
sensor 2front rightno extentionmobo usb 3.0
sensor 3back right5m USB 3.0 active extentionmobo USB 3.0
sensor 4back left10m USB 3.0 active extentioninateck card USB 3.0


I've tried with the USB 2.0 for sensors 3 and 4 but i get the spiraling hand nonesence (on the left touch) as well as the issues described above.

Here are the dimensions of my setup

    If it's not game breaking or annoying don't worry about :smile:

    erm,
    it's not behaving the way it should, so i'm reporting it so it can be improved on.
    it doesnt happen with 3 sensors so I'm sure reporting it is what oculus would prefer

    I have four sensors mounted, but I just am not motivated enough to do anything about the 4th when honestly three work 99% perfect for me for roomscale.  Right now, I need a 4th about as much as I need a 5th.
    Rift-S, Quest 128GB, GO 64GB.

    well, after having a flawless first session (the first boot I had after changing my extentions to USB 3.0) I've just had my worst.
    height movement, spiralling hands, glitching to high hell!!

    logs are attached, might have to drop to usb 2.0 for the rear sensors i think and maybe even back to only 3 :/

    well directly after writing this I checked task manager and had a background app using 25% cpu (dafuq!)
    so that got killed, i put the headset back on and other than one or 2 minor glitches, it was pretty dam good :)

    ok im resurecting this thread since the latest update.

    I've also had a change in setup (bought a second inatech card), and use the script at the base of the page (copy it all and paste to notepad, save as whatever.bat if you like it) to make sure power options are all set.

    my setup is now as follows:


    SensorPostitionExtentionUSB Slot
    HMDHead Ugreen 2m usb 3.0 passive extentioninateck card 1 USB 3.0
    sensor 1front leftUgreen 3m usb 3.0 passive extentioninateck card 1 USB 3.0
    sensor 2front rightno extentioninateck card 1 USB 3.0
    sensor 3back rightUgreen 5m USB 3.0 active extentioninateck card 2 USB 3.0
    sensor 4back leftUgreen 10m USB 3.0 active extentioninateck card 2 USB 3.0


    also log attached from my last session (only watched the dear angelica video, will add more as time goes on)

    it looks as though the laggy hands after sleep problem is fixed (and was the only issue i was bothered about) but would be good for all you trail blazers with 4 sensors to post everything in one place. then we can have a clear outline of what does and doesnt work!

    the way to get the laggy hands to dissapear is as follows:
    1. run full set up with 3 sensors
    2. restart
    3. plug in sensor number 4
    4. enjoy being 1337 as fuck and having minimal occlusion
    1. run set up with all 4 sensors plugged in (found this out when bug fixing, odd it never worked first time but hey ho)
    bugs i've exerpienced so far:
    1. When having my hands on my lap in home in an area i would normally get the flying hands issue (sat at my desk with maximum LED blockage), i noticed the entire virtual world moving, however it did move back.
    2. Every now and then in dear angelica, my guradian walls would flash up for a fraction of a second. i was nowhere near the edg of my play space each time.
    Oh yeah, and @cybereality, is this useful?
    You never replied to the previous tag in the OP.


    EDIT
    for anyone wondering why i have tripple posted (i would normally never tolerate such nonesence) it's because each entry is to serve as a timeline for when issue arrise, as well as replies and such.

    ok so just played a bit of the lagfall open beta, but housten, we have a problem!

    unlikje mst who got taller, looks like i got shorter :/

    also, my system thinks i've moved to the corner of my room as my guardian was up in front and to the left of me, and i was facing the wrong way in OH even though i was sat at my desk (which is facing forward and slightly yto the right on my play space.

    logs attached for the last hour

    hmmm, 5th post in a row by me :#
     hey ho, this will serve as a good timeline if nothing else.

    I've raised a ticket and support havent suggested any resolve other than checking my drivers are upto date and refering me to the generic setup help files (i've clearly followed all those) so i've asked my ticket is kept open until a resolve is in place (most likely the next patch or the one after etc etc)

    anywho, another hour gaming done so another set of logs

    toodle pip all
