How to disable position tracking?

Oculus just arrived, and I intend to use it soon hopefully without position tracking. I just want to use the mouse for vision movement in-game (League of Legends) with VorpX, not my head motion. How do I do this? Just unplug the camera?

You can unplug the camera, but this will only stop receiving accurate positional tracking data. The Oculus on-board tracker itself will still update for orientation (rotation) motion, and you will get some "faked" positional data via a head-neck model. If I were you, I'd check in the 3rd party app you are using and see if head-tracking can be disabled in there.

The best way to do this in general is turning down the (rotational) head tracking sensitivity to 0.0 on the head tracking page of the vorpX ingame menu and disable pos tracking on the same menu page.

For League of Legends I would suggest something else though: turn on "Virtual Cinema Mode" on the main page of the vorpX ingame menu and then turn on "Lock head tracking". This disables the head tracking in the game, but let's you still look around the virtual screen. Games like League of Legends are better suited for Virtual Cinema mode than for the default Full VR mode.

Thank you, Virtual Cinema mode is exactly what I wanted for all my games. Headtracking is nice for realism but it is not at all suited for competitive play, too hard to aim or look around as opposed to using a mouse.

It sounds like you might just want to get a 3d monitor.
