OK, I only want to be able to run the vive with stereoscopic mode with Diablo3, but my PC is remote from my full scale area with the stations. Do I need to have headset tracking at all if I’m just doing basic stereo viewing use? Sorry if it’s dumb question, I tried another software that DOES require full tracking, I’d like the vive to simply be a 3D viewer. Possible? How? No demo so I can’t even check myself.
I believe the Vive will simply show grey if there is no head tracking of any kind. You need at least one base station.
If you are playing in the same room where the main setup is just make sure the headset can see one of the stations.
If it is not in the same room you can make a seated setup with one base station – you need to change the channel of the station to “A”. You can place the station anywhere in the other room as long as the headset can see it and it is higher than your head.
