    Hi,

    I work in Unity with SteamVR and I bought the VIVE trackers.

    I watched some tutorials but they do their setup with the basic CameraRig.

    I want to use the trackers with the Player prefab from the InteractionSystem of SteamVR.
    I was suprised to see nothing on this prefab to add easily more controllers.

    The only solution I have found is to add the SteamVR_ControllerManager component on the Player prefab. Then add the hands and the others controllers, same as the CameraRig.

    But in some rare cases, the trackers don't activate when I need hit in Unity. I have to stop and replay to get everythings works.


    Have you others solutions to link the trackers and the Player prefab from steamVR ?

    Thank you for your help.

    I'm noticing that the trackers won't work unless both vive controllers are also on.
