Leap Motion not working

Postby P3DZ » Wed Jan 16, 2019 12:26 pm

Hi, I'm using the FlyInside standalone simulator with WMR, a Flight Stick, and a Leap Motion hand tracker

The VR works and the flightstick works, but the hand tracking does not.

I've tried installing the Orion software, I can confirm the Leap itself works with other programs right now. I've selected it as a "Hand Source" in the menu, and I've configured and pressed a key for "toggle hand tracking".

I'm using the free trial.

Anyone else have this problem?

Did you install the Orion Beta? If the program Orion Beta is running, then open the visualization. Do you see your surroundings and your hands? If not, where did you put the Leap Motion Sensor? Are your hands in front of the sensor? Do the LEDs light up? I'm running it, then it should be running for you, right?

I'm having similar problems. This was my first attempt to use Leap since upgrading headset from DK1 to CV1. The sim works fine and the Leap works in visualisation and also on the Oculus view before Flyinside-FSX starts up. Once in the sim, I can only see the right hand and this is frozen and unresponsive, the sim also freezes momentarily from time to time. It all works fine again if I unplug the Leap.

Just purchase the FlyInside Simulator. Already had the Leap Motion device. Same as the others, Leap Motion doesnt work and as with the prev post, one time I got the right hand and was able to flick a button or two, then it froze. Leap motion works with other apps( I.e. Leap Motions Paint, which is pretty cool). Came here looking for ideas, but need to review the Leap Motion logs to see if there is any indication of the issue there.

Interesting that I have the same issue, particularly on two occurrences listed above where I the right hand appears and reminds suspend. Not consistent every time, just a couple of times. The other times there are no hands at all. I just purchased the FlyInside simulator from Steam yesterday. I already had the Leap Motion module with my HTC VIVE headset on Windows 10. I am able to download and use the Leap Motion Paint program, so this tells me the Leap Motion module is working.
I've installed the beta driver, uninstalled the flight sim and the drivers and reinstalled them, with the same affect. Even went with a clean install of Windows.
I did notice in the setup menus, after I go back in, the 'hands menu' shows the Leap Motion checked marked, but slightly grayed out or not as highlighted as the others.
Since there is only a Monitor selection, Oculus and Steam VR selection, but no selection for the HTC Vive, I select the Steam VR option.
For what little I can use in the VR at the moment, I like what I see in the FlyInside simulator.
As I monitor the discussion, I will gather whatever pertinent information on settings and post them here by end of the this next weekend.

Disappointed that FlyInside stop supporting the Xplane platform. So I could use my existing Leap Motion module, I purchased the FlyInside flight simulator from Steam. I am using HTC Vive and the Leap Motion module. I can’t get it to work either. I’ve tried to uninstall and reinstall, still not successful. I even had the same problem where I see the right hand in the Leap Motion suspended in the VR. I downloaded the Leap Motion paint program and that works as expected with Leap Motion.
I plan to do a deep dive into it this week or next to make sure all is setup correctly and validate if there is anything in the Leap Motion logs that would give any indication.
