Laptop internal mouse freezes when running Condor2 with Oculus Rift

Post by benethridge » Fri Jan 31, 2020 1:22 am

Hi all.

I looked through the Condor2 manual and the FAQs and also searched on this forum but I haven't found anything on this particular issue. I'm wondering if any of you have experienced this:

1. Plug in Oculus Rift headset
2. Start Oculus Rift software.
3. Start Condor2.

At this point, the laptop's mouse freezes every time.

This is a new Lenovo gaming computer with a great NVIDIA card, i.e. I don't think it's lack of a decent gaming computer.

We've tried stuff like turning off Mirror Rendering and Full Screen Emulation to no avail. We've also tried different combinations of 1/2/3 above to no avail. If we just do 2 and 3, the mouse doesn't lock up. It's only when we plug in the headset as well.

Is there maybe some odd setting in Oculus to allow the mouse to work in Condor instead of forcing the Oculus hand controllers to be used? Or maybe some odd laptop mouse driver setup in the pc?

Have any of you had this problem or heard about it?

I'm not getting this problem on my setup. This is for a glider pilot friend whom I encouraged to buy a new gaming pc, Condor2 and Oculus.

Just trying to help him out since I'm a software engineer and he isn't. Hoping it's just something simple I'm missing.

Next we're going to try buying an external Logitech mouse and see if that works around the problem. (That's my current setup also.) Will let you know how that goes, if no one is aware of this issue.

Does your laptop have two graphic card? :?
IF the anwer is YES, make shure Condor runs with the Nvidia Graphic card instead the Intel one. :D

Yes, understood. Early on we verified that Condor2 is using the NVIDIA. That wasn't the problem, but thanks for the idea.

We worked around the problem by simply adding an external Logitech mouse. The mouse no longer freezes and everything's working as expected (as long as we use the external mouse, of course.) Go figure.
