We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.
The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.
The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.
On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.
So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.
Holograms 240 Issue: Shared Room Offset in Real World
I'm creating an app using the sharing service from holograms 240. Everything works as it is supposed to: the two users join the room, and both can see the cube that represents the other's head in the proper position around the central hologram (To simplify things I grabbed the remoteheadmanager script from holotoolkit-unity to use instead of the remoteplayermanager. It seems to work fine, the head movement matches perfectly).
However, the room itself is in different locations for both users, at an offset approximately equal to the distance between the two hololenses. This makes the cubes that represent the heads not match up with the actual hololens device in the real world.
From what I understand reading other questions here, the initial hololens sends a world anchor to any connecting hololens. The receiving hololens then attempts to place the world anchor according to what it can see. I'm not sure why the second hololens in my case cannot accurately place the world anchor, given that both hololenses are in the same room.
Am I missing something? Or is this how the tutorial is supposed to work?
