Hello everyone.

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.

Galaxy Explorer holograms have become shaky / unstable


A couple of weeks ago we realized that on all 5 of our HoloLenses the planets in Galaxy Explorer have become unstable / shaky - especially when you move around the room. Galaxy Explorer up til that point worked perfectly and the holograms were positioned/persisted in space perfectly.

Has anyone else experienced the same behavior? I've tried every trick in the book - except for resetting the HoloLens.



  • Yes, we are experiencing the same problem. Were you able to find a solution?

    I'm not sure if some combo of Unity/MixedRealityToolkit/VisualStudio is causing this, but something has definitely changed during the later part of 2017. I built a simple Christmas scene in December 2017 and it was horribly shaky. Older apps built on the pure HoloToolkit from earlier this year do not have this issue. I had to implement a couple of things I've never had to worry about before like manually setting the stabilization plane as gaze changes as well as setting focus points on every frame - that seemed to help a little but still wasn't as stable as older HoloToolkit apps.

    Edit - turns out there are a few open issues on github that smell like they are related. Mostly unity related, updates and patches should resolve?
