Connecting your Trackers

This guide should help you set up SlimeVR trackers and software.

Connecting trackers

Note: If you are using DIY trackers with hardcoded the WiFi credentials or phones with owoTrack, you can skip to assigning your trackers. However, if you hardcoded the WiFi credentials and are having trouble connecting these steps may still be helpful for diagnosing the issue.

  1. Open the SlimeVR Server and click Setup Wizard, please note if required you can change the displayed language at this point at the bottom right.

  2. Input your WiFi credentials, so that your tracker can connect to WiFi, then click Submit.

BEWARE If you use official trackers make sure to turn them on for this process!

Inputting WiFi credentials

  6. You'll want to be in VR for this final step. This involves wiggling around with your feet planted so that your body proportions can be determined. Simply follow the instructions shown. Be sure to verify your results and that nothing is obviously incorrect like having a neck length of 100 cm! Click Continue once you're done.

  7. You're done! If you've made it through all that, you should be ready to start using SlimeVR!

If all trackers don't show up, this can be caused by Windows Firewall blocking the connection. To fix this, go to SlimeVR Server folder and run firewall.bat as administrator. There are additional steps that can be taken on the common issues page if this does not work.

For additional information on trackers, you may want to enable Developer mode. The setting for this can be found under Settings, General, and then Interface.

If some trackers don't show up, try turning them off and on again. You can rotate tracker around and see it change rotation in the server to figure out which tracker is which.

If some trackers don't change their rotation as you move them (including extensions), or display 0 0 0 rotation, try turning them off and on again, usually it should fix the issue.

If any tracker displays ERROR as it's status, or have orange and blue light permanently on, that's not good. Try restarting them and see if it helps. If not, contact Eiren.
