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.
Handling Tracking Loss
I've been making an app that kind of relies on your to be in dark environments, however in the dark, the HoloLens loses its ability to perform spatial mapping. That's not such a big deal for my app but I'd like to be able to suppress the popup that says "trying to map your environment". I've been following this guide here:
However, I am unable to follow it completely because the option to uncheck "Display Tracking Loss Image" is greyed out, as is most options in that part of the settings menu. Does anyone know how to enable those options?
