We need a clear and easy way to identify exactly what HMD and motion controllers a user has. there is currently no up to date master list of the hmd names that “get hmd device name” would provide, and there is the potential for a vive user to have either vive wands or index/knuckles controllers, so the hmd device name doesn’t tell us the whole story.
i have seen nothing but complaints about the “steamvr input plugin”, everyone is saying it’s a mess and ends up doing more damage than good. i just want a simple way, IN ENGINE, to identify the user’s hmd and controllers so i can make my game compatible without hvaing to purchase 20 different hmds.
if you would even just publish a list of the hmd names that includes the new hmds like valve index, vive cosmos and WMR headsets, that would be helpful enough.
