    Hi, beginner here. Do i need a vr computer ready to start learning this? I tried doing this tutorial but i didn't get any XR play as shown in the video. I do have an oculus quest but still it doesn't work when is connected to the desktop or laptop.

    Hi - i have upgraded to the XR plug in and everything seems to be ok except I can't toggle between 2d screens and VR. This used to be pretty simple with the old system:
    Code (CSharp):
    1.  public void Start()
    2.  
    3.     {
    4.  
    5.         StartCoroutine(ActivatorVR("none"));
    6.  
    7.     }
    8.     public IEnumerator ActivatorVR(string YesVR)
    9.  
    10.     {
    11.  
    12.         XRSettings.LoadDeviceByName(YesVR);
    13.  
    14.         yield return null;
    15.  
    16.         XRSettings.enabled = true;
    17.  
    18.     }

    SteamVR devices should work. In fact this tutorial is not up to date because the SteamVR XR plugin has already been out of beta since Aug 4, so you don't have to check the deprecated XR Supported checkbox anymore and use XR Management for all devices.

    @lz7cjc does commenting out line 16 work?

    Hello,
    Can anyone point me to tutorials how to use the MockHMD XR for Unity? Perhaps how to view the Panic Room without an HMD?

    @AskCarol
    Thanks so much.
    Sorry to cross post but do you know if there’s any way to port the navigation from EditorVR ...?
    The grip based Pull & Scale... like all the other XR creation tools have too (tiltBrush/Quill Medium etc)

    Would be so useful!
    Let me know if you have any ideas as how to get started
    I really appreciate
    Thanks!
