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.

Mixed Reality Controllers Trackpad Issue

I could not find any help anywhere else. I am having a big issue with the MR motion controller trackpads. After using the controllers for a few mins the trackpads think there is input going to them even when not being touched. In cliff house I can see a steady purple dot on the trackpad as if my finger is resting on it even though it is not. This does happen with both controllers but seems to affect my left controller most often/frequent. I can fix the problem by turning the controller off and on again, however this only fixes the problem for a few mins, the problem comes back after a few mins of trackpad use. This problem also seems to affect the thumbsticks, however I have not seen this too much for not many experiences actually use the trackpad. I can mostly ignore this issue but however it makes some experiences and games completely unplayable, especially within steam VR. I would greatly appreciate any help on this issue!

    +1 same issue

    Workaround would be to have an option from MR portal for joysticks to mimic touchpad output, so we can use the joysticks until this issue is fixed properly.

  • +1 same issue, and mine has thumbstick off center problem too.
