Bit of a grumbly publish this morning.
Graev simply received the Playstation VR and gifted me his HTC Vive — which you will recall I blogged about a while in the past. I used to be tremendous excited to convey it residence and get all of it working in order that Graev and I might play Star Trek Bridge Crew.
I introduced it house, hooked all of it up the identical method we hooked it up at Graev’s place, and was met with brutal disappointment. It wasn’t working.
“Error: SharedIPC Compositor Invalid Connect Response (307)”
That’s the error I used to be receiving in SteamVR.
Everything was inexperienced. All gadgets have been detected: headset, each hand controllers, each sensors. Yet for some cause I used to be getting the 307 error on Steam, and within the SteamVR little window within the backside middle I had a “A key component of SteamVR isn’t working (306).”
I proceeded to spend the subsequent three hours unplugging and replugging, rebooting, resetting, uninstalling, reinstalling, swapping cables. Nothing.
Fast ahead to the subsequent night. I’ve an extended day 12 hour work day and eventually have time to play so I cross my fingers and run into all the similar errors.
This time Graev recommends I attempt placing SteamVR into beta mode. Done.
Now I get error 405 – Compositor can’t create graphical system. For hours it appeared I used to be the one one on the planet getting these errors and that nothing was going to repair my drawback. Then 12 hours in the past (aka final night time once I was within the thick of issues) it appears like another poor soul has my same issue.
I’m going to attempt doing show port to hdmi for my monitor and see if hdmi to the hyperlink field fixes my challenge. If that also yields no success, I’ll be giving the Vive again to Graev and giving up. I can’t waste three valuable nights of gaming time futsing round with gimmicky VR crap that doesn’t work proper out of the field.
Seriously, it’s 2017 and also you launch a product that doesn’t work out of the field? As a shopper, I’ve no endurance for such a expertise — strike that, I’ve three days value of endurance and now a entire ton of dangerous will.
Update: Fixed for Vive and SteamVR errors 305, 306, and 405!
I attempted swapping cables and having my monior being on the show port with my Vive Linkbox utilizing hdmi however that didn’t work. You can see a bunch of my options above. None of these labored.
What finally labored and solved my points with the Vive error 306, 306, and 405 was rolling again my Nvidia drivers. Huh? Wtf? I do know. That’s precisely what I assumed.
I rolled my drivers again to model 381.89. I did a clear set up of my drivers. Just to be protected I went to the usual home windows program removing and eliminated the drivers there. Then I used the set up utility (what I linked) to do a “clean installation” of the 381.89 drivers. I left the Nvidia expertise and audio drivers alone however clear put in the 3d and different drivers again to 381.89 or no matter model got here with these older drivers.
Then I restarted my pc. While off, I unplugged all the cables for the Vive.
I booted the pc again up and plugged my cables into the linkbox within the following order (I do not know if it issues): USB, energy cable, HDMI (or mini show port — I attempted each finally they usually each work).
Then I plugged within the Vive headset in the identical order.
I booted up Steam, then SteamVR.
To my full shock, it freaking labored.
And it wasn’t even the newest Nvidia drivers inflicting the problems. I had a number of variations BEFORE the newest model. It didn’t work with these, it didn’t work with the most recent. I solely labored once I used Nvidia drivers 381.89. Also, notice that I’m utilizing the BETA model of SteamVR that you need to use by proper clicking on SteamVR in your instruments library and going to properties and enabling it there.
I hope this helps you remedy your drawback! May you wrestle lower than I did.
