So I just got the rift today and been having a hard time playing Arizona Sunrise and SuperHot vr and Onward. I can play Contractors and Pavolov just fine but these other games crash constitly with my headset saying tracking error and then i'll get an error saying my right touch pad is low on batteries which is not because I just put new ones in. And For some reason in my oculus home/devices and shows like 6 right touch pads not sure why and I tried to remove them all and I can't... So far not impressed with this rift. I liked the HTC Vive i had better and i didn't really like that one. Someone have any ideas? I tried to upgrade everything usb port fixes and all.

    There is a little app on the forum for cleaning up the phantom right controllers that works perfectly - doesn't stop it happening again though...

    Are you on the PTC build?  If not I'd suggest you give it a try as, apart from the known issue with a tracking message, it appears to solve many issues users have been having.

    No suggestion why those games are an issue, sorry.

    Why is the sky blue?  Why is space black?  Why isn’t @vannagirl and @snowdog married?

    You simply cannot expect everything to work perfectly with each other. You HAVE TO give it time and be patient about it. 

    Now if you’ll excuse me I am gonna go back to trying to get my copy of HALO to work on my commodore 64.
