You have to make sure that WMR is set as your OpenXR runtime. The WMR portal should display a warning message on launch if that isn’t the case.
If you are sure WMR is your OpenXR runtime and it still doesn’t work for some reason, there isn’t really much else to recommend than using SteamVR instead.Aug 3, 2021 at 3:22pm #205535

I just wanted to add I’m having the same problem on Mixed Reality, and like you said, I’ve just been using SteamVR for now instead. It just gives me a black screen for the games I’ve tested, though I can hear them running.Aug 6, 2021 at 8:50pm #205589dimensionaldudeParticipant

I’ve tried using Windows mixed reality headset with steam vr it doesn’t work, how did you make it work with wmr and steamvr, it says steam vr failed in the box when it appears on desktop screen, there’s also no set steam vr to wmr in vorpx vr headset settingsSep 4, 2021 at 3:16pm #206043
Hi Ralf you siad there’s no option just to use steam vr with wmr I’ve tried that a dialog shows saying something like steamvr failed there isn’t any setting in vorpx headset settings to change steamvr with wmr I really want to play games with vorpx software but its not working well for me like I said the previous version of vorpx was working well there was an option to change stamvr with wmr in the previous version of vorpxSep 6, 2021 at 11:47am #206081
vorpX works with SteamVR + WMR just like any SteamVR game does, that’s actually how WMR headsets worked per default until not too long ago OpenXR support was added to vorpX.
OpenXR is quite a bit better than WMR over SteamVR, but if for some reason that doesn’t work for you, simply download ‘Windows Mixed Reality for SteamVR’ in the Steam shop and switch to SteamVR in the vorpX config app.Mar 30, 2022 at 7:47am #210425lazerwolfParticipant
I had the black screen as well. “Fix it” was not an option because it was already using openxr. What worked for me was uninstalling “openxr dev tools” and openxr, then starting WMR and clicking “fit it”. It’s been working great since.Apr 1, 2022 at 3:52pm #210480nickneoParticipant
I had been playing F1 2021 for a long time with openXR device selected, but lately i can only do it with SteamVR selected. Please ralf, what can you do about it? Using steamvr I have worse graphics quality and poorer performance.Apr 1, 2022 at 5:29pm #210484
Works fine for me. Just checked with a Reverb G2.
Please double check whether Windows Mixed Reality is your OpenXR runtime. The WMR portal will complain on launch if it’s not. Unfortunately SteamVR tries to make itself the system’s OpenXR runtime on each launch, which is complete nonsense for Oculus and WMR devices since both have native OpenXR support.
If you have an RTX card, also make sure that all raytracing is disabled in the game options. Otherwise the game would crash when loading a race. Not sure whether raytracing was added later or whether I missed that when doing the profile.
Last but not least: if for some reason you have installed the WMR developer preview runtime, try switching back to the release version.Apr 6, 2022 at 10:21pm #210531MinabeParticipant
From everything i tried with my WMR i could never make vorpX work with openXR, nor any other app for that matter other than the demo with hit and miss success. There are actually many reports about openXR being broken for WMR in general and many ppl have similar problems which tend to arise/dissappear as updates come out.
I got a Quest 2, just had to make Oculus the main OpenXR runtime and everything worked perfectly out of the box, imo the main problem is that with WMR there’s more than one brand so things tend to be quite different from one headset to another even within the same ecosystem.Apr 8, 2022 at 1:50pm #210552SolidpointParticipant
I’ve bought vorpx today to use it with ‘The hunter: call of the wild’.
I have a HP reverb G2
– Disconnected the triple monitors to just one monitor
– Disabled Nvidia overlay
– Disabled EVGA fps overlay
If i start the game, on the monitor i see the game running with vorpx attached (vorpx message). I can move the mouse with my headset. But in WMR i see 4 white balls/dots loading. This loading is also visible on the headset. Steam VR gives me a black screen.
Running non supported games do work in cinematic mode (like valheim or hydroneer)
Is there a solution/workarround available?Apr 9, 2022 at 2:50pm #210574
No problem here with the game and a Reverb G2 here in OpenXR mode. Since apparently you already checked for conflicting programs, pretty much the only thing left to recommend is trying to run it windowed. Sometimes that can help with weird issues.Apr 13, 2022 at 7:25pm #210630SolidpointParticipant
I run the game windowd, but noting i try fixes the loading screen in the WMR screen (and on the HP reverb)
