View Full Version : Vive - remove Steam VR background

07-18-2018, 05:45 AM
We have a nice new Vive Pro which works great with Vizard but for the fact that the Steam VR background (ground plane, sky, fence showing bounded space you can walk in) is always visible.

I'm sure its very simple but I can't work out how to turn it all off. I have found some posts that suggest the "chaperone" can be turned off from the Steam VR settings but I can't find the settings referred to and I'm not sure they would get rid of the ground plane and sky etc.

Can anyone put me out of my misery?!

Let me answer my own question -

Using the "developer" setting for there Chaperone you can get everything to disappear apart from a polygon on the ground plane that indicates the usable area.

if you need to get rid of that as well you can set the opacity of the Chaperone to zero in the settings file.
