    I tried to set up the motion compensation with Pimax. Did not work. This is what I wrote on Pimax forum.

    First, many thanks to Pimax to try to add motion compensation to the headset.
    But setting the motion compensation to a controller locks the world to that controller (and its good) but we need to be able to reset the seat position (which we can't, it does nothing).
    Resetting the seat position should move the world to the right position for the headset and use that change of matrices to calculate the offset of the controller.
    The controller is fixed on the rig, if we can't adjust its offset to the world (or being calculated during a seat reset), we can't use it.
    So sad.

    Tested Pimax motion compensation again, this time with assetto corsa. It worked, partially.

    I was able to set the motion compensation tracker (controller) and the reset position works for this game. So far, so good.
    The only problem with it for assetto is that it has to be in the right rotation. If the tracker is rotated, the game will be side way and stay that way even with a seat position reset.
    So, motion compensation is working partially depending of the game. I suspect that Dirt Rally does not work because of revive. But, that’s Pimax expertise now to find out the reason. I’m just experimenting and providing the results.

    Bizarre problem trying this out. I've had the tracker for a while but never used it because motion compensation wasn't in place. Weird problem now, I connect the tracker and everything flips 90 degrees as though I'm lying on my side???? I can't figure out how to reset my position, I don't have vive controllers so I can't navigate in SteamVR easily, my gamepad only works for some controls. Why can't I use my keyboard and mouse ffs...

    Yes, I am using my second controller to go to the setting and "reset the seat position". I don't know how you can do without.
