    I am making an app where I am using the GVR reticle pointer to start playing a video on a sprite after I click on it. (Google Cardboard sdk for unity.) I have set up all the required components on the sprite (collider, event trigger, videoplayer, play() on PointerClick etc.). It works flawlessly inside the editor (with GVREditorEmulator included in the scene.) However, after building the same scene as an android app, the reticle pointer stops working on the phone. It just doesn't detect the sprite and expand the ring on hovering over it. Clicks don't work either. I have checked and double check if I am missing collider or event trigger. Could anyone shed light on this?

    This is driving me crazy.. I tried changing the distances of the objects from the camera, Making the camera a child of another gameobject etc and nothing is working. Everything works as intended in the editor but not on the phone. I tested on Google Pixel and OnePlue 4.

    Adding the GvrControllerMain to the scene did not solve this issue for me. Has anyone found any other solution?

    Somebody help! Reticle does not work after building. Before that, in the play mode, it works.

    I have kind of different problem here. It works in editor as it should be. But on the phone, when I launch my scene in none-vr mode, pointer doesnt expand when I look at object but I can touch the object to interact. Object doesnt have to be at the center too. I can touch any interactive object that camera can see. But in vr mode nothing works. There should be some setting I should change but cant figure out.

    I've tried the last three releases of GVR SDK for Unity, but never see the pointer on iOS (only in emulator). Does this work for anyone?

    Here what I did:
    -Delete Library folder
    -Delete Google VR folder
    -Open Unity and wait for it to recreate Library files
    -Switch platform to Android
    -Reinstall Google VR plugin

    That fixed it on Android devices although sometimes it stops again and I have to repeat the above steps for it to work again.
    It doesn't work on iOS still

    My problem on iOS is that I had 2 event systems, 1 for the Canvas and the other for GVR I disabled the event system of the canvas and moved the GVR event system to the top of the hierarchy. That fixed it for me
