Odd Touch controller tracking bug?

I just spent about an hour in Medium, and several times, one of the controllers would stop tracking right, and start spiraling around my hand for a few seconds, then pop back to normal. Pretty sure I was well within the view of both cameras, and it's only happened to me in Medium so far. If I wasn't so sleepy, I'd go back in an see if it replicates. I'll update if when I can, whether it replicates or not.
I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this?

    It happened to me a few times too. Not sure why.

    Ok, well this morning I've been playing with a couple games.. And while in Home, I noticed this happen again a couple minutes ago, so now I know it wasn't just Medium. I guess I'll make a post in the main support forum.

    I have noticed some weirdness, but I assume it's just when my hand disappears from vision of both sensors.

    Naw, this is worse than just an occlusion glitch, I'm well within the view of both cameras, and it's very comical when it happens. The hand literally spirals out from my real hand, and it still knows where that hand is, cause I can move it, and it spirals around in the new locations. oddly enough.
    I posted it in the general support area tho, since I now know it wasn't just Medium:

    Had this happen once in Medium today exactly as OP described - the controller started doing some weird spiral orbit then suddenly snapped back into the right position. Touch dev so I've had these for quite a while and it's the first time I've ever seen that happen.

    Yeah this has happened to me maybe 3 times so far during my day of Touch usage. The hand starts wobbling and spiraling, which lasts for a couple of seconds before returning to normal.
    Happened on both Medium and Dead&Buried

    Ahhh.. This seems to happen on the vive as well.. Here's to hoping the fix for Oculus also fixes the vive.. Medium is so good! Thanks devs for your great work. I can't wait to see where medium goes. :) Until then, medium is fun and completely usable to sculpt in VR.

    It's happened to me. I have one of my sensors on USB-2. Anyone else?

    I've been having this issue also. Thought I might have been hiding one of the controllers from view, but not so. Either controller will just start spiralling around for a few seconds, then stop. So far this has only happened in Medium.

    Also. the handedness of the controllers kept swapping this evening while I was scaling / rotating layers.

    I had the same issues last night and I'm well within view of the cameras. Only noticed it on medium.

    I noticed this as well only in Medium, I can post log files too if that helps.

    It seems to happen to me once I've been in Medium for over a certain period of time, normally like an hour or so.

    I've spend a few hours in games like Dead and Buried and never had any problems.

    Yeah, I get this too (in Medium). Both controllers in full view of both sensors, but randomly one hand or the other will start wobbling violently. Luckily for me, it seems to happen more often with the right hand, which is my support hand in Medium, so at least it doesn't mess up me work too much. When it happens I stop what I'm doing and wave my controller in front of the sensor, although I can't say that it helps.

    I have developed an annoying habit of gradually rotating clockwise, IRL while I'm in Medium. The wobbly tool hand effect tips me off I need to turn back round. Not saying there isn't something up because I've had this when both hands were definitely in view of the cameras but it's definitely something that happens when one of the controllers is out of view, too.

    I just had a spiraling controller a few times in space pirate trainer after an extended play session. It's more common in medium, but I have also spend quite som time doodling. I have 3 sensors. It does not seem like I'm hiding either touch controller from the sensors, but sometimes I question if they are too close.
  • elbofforelboffor Posts: 2,572 Valuable Player
    by any chance, is the spiralling hand near the rear sensor which is on the longest usb cable?
    This is my forum signature.
    There are many others like it, but this is mine.

    no fix for this yet it seems? this is still happening for me in medium...its driving me insane.
  • jessicazetajessicazeta Posts: 195 Oculus Staff
    We just fixed this with 2.2.4, out last week! Update your Medium, and your drivers, and try it out! :D

    This was recorded in 2.2.4 today. This has been happening all week. I've adjusted my sensors about a dozen times now. nothing is working.

    I updated my USB driver, things were working fine for ...30 minutes? now it's back to compete chaos again...WTF!!!???

    OH! I thought you were describing another touch controller tracking bug. So so sorry for misunderstanding.

    I found out the problem wasn't actually a usb driver update. The problem was Spotify playing in chrome? when spotify is playing medium FREAKS out. I played spotify with the default app in windows and there were no issues. Something about spotify in chrome makes medium go nuts???
