asked Feb 14 by protospace (15 points)
I've just installed X plane and i can enable VR mode,  the VIVE controllers are being tracked but the INPUT is not recognised. I mean, i can't grab or selected anything.  

Some advice would be appreciated,
Thank you!

Try going to the Settings > Joystick screen and calibrating the controllers.

Did you start X-Plane and go directly to calibrate the controllers? There is a known bug that if you start a flight first, then try to calibrate, the UI will stop responding.

i start X plane and i choose a plane first (NOT IN VR)  then i go to the "VR HARDWARE" menu and i click on "enable VR harware", the game finish to load and i begin to play in VR mode..   As "protospace" said,  the VIVE controllers are being tracked but the INPUT is not recognised. in order  that we can't grab or selected anything on the pannel by using the Vive controlers.

At this point you can restart the game and click on "enable VR Mouse" before " enable Vr hardware" , it s allow you to click on the pannel front of you  and you can go to "joystick menu" but i dont understand how to reinitialize the vive controlers with this menu..    crying
