 Unleash HTC / WMR Page / Dashboard in VR

WARNING : This mode isn’t compatible with STEAMVR BETA. Please use the standard version instead. 


Before using VR Unleashed, don’t forget to calibrate your Headset.
While setting up your headset, ensure that the dashboard isn't in the "VR unleashed' mode .

For each parameter (Locomotion or Controller) in the VR Unleashed mode, you must click on “Apply parameters” button to update the new parameters.


After SteamVR platform has been installed and the VR hardware (HTC Vive/WMR) has been calibrated, you may use the Dashboard in VR

Windows Mixed Reality (WMR)

If you’ve never played SteamVR games with a Windows Mixed Reality headset, you first need to install the Windows Mixed Reality for Steam VR driver.
This driver is available for free here:

 STEAM VR : VR Locomotion

  1. Enable the 3dRudder to move the HMD (Head mounted Display) by clicking the appropriate box,
  2. Adjust the movement speed ratio for each axis,
  3. If desired, activate Smooth Mode.


The smoothing is a low-pass filter, taking as input N successive values of each axis, and giving as output the average of this values.
Calibration on 3dRudder startup: if this option is activated, the software will record the HMD position when the 3dRudder is started (feet on device).
This position will be used as the reference (i.e. initial) HMD position,
Set a vertical offset applied to the HMD and controllers; this allows for example to use the HMD while seated, but getting the same HMD altitude as using it in standing position.

Examples : HTC VIVE : The Lab

STEAM VR : Controller


  1. Enable the 3dRudder to trigger controller actions,
  2. Associate each 3dRudder axis to a specific controller action.
  3. Priority to trackpad: tick to yield priority to trackpad in case of double use. Eg. Navigating the pipboy in Fallout 4 VR.
  4. Touch only: tick to patch touch controls only, leave blank to patch press + touch controls
  5. For Valve Index you can choose the type of mapping (Trackpad or Joystick), by default All (Trackpad and Joystick)
You can modify "Height Offset" in your game. Thanks to this feature you can simulate the same height you would be if you were standing

  1. Activate VR Unleashed mode,
  2. Activate Calibration,
  3. Change “Height Offset”,
  4. Apply Parameters
Examples : Fallout 4 / DOOM VRF


  1. ‘Save Settings’: save parameters values as current values; when the Dashboard is started, it uses the current values,
  2. 'Save new settings' : saves current values in a specified configuration file ,
  3. 'Load settings' : load a configuration file,
  4. 'Activate VR Unleashed mode' : activate the VR unleashed mode,
  5. 'Reset to default settings' : reset VR unleashed parameters to their factory values.
Warning : you must apply the button "Activate VR Unleashed mode", after loading new settings
