Vive Motion controllers don't work by default


When loading a map, the Vive Motion controllers don’t seem to work until issuing “stereo on”. Are the controllers coupled to stereo rendering? Is there a way to enable them independently?

The use case is, its nice to test the controllers without having to put a HMD on.



Short answer: without “stereo on” the motion controllers are not loaded and you cannot use them, and yes, they are bound to the HMD.
