So I hooked up the base stations to the new telescoping light stands. And I plugged in all of the cables. This included a set of earbuds with a mic. The mic part is important. I usually used them only for listening to music.
So I get it all set up. And there I am in the SteamVR home area. I'm looking for the thing to start the front camera. I'm not really thinking, I just want my VR.
I look around and my old set of walls are totally wrong. I'm talking to myself, as the old man that I am.
This isn't right.
I can see myself?
This needs to be fixed.
What do I click for...
And a voice says, "What's the problem? Do you need help.?"
And I freaked. Not that I did anything weird. I just jumped. I was thinking, Are you God? :)
So I explained that I had reset the area of the room by changing the position of the base stations. He kindly explained that I had to do the original setup on my comp. I thanked him and logged off.
I told the wife about it and she almost died laughing. She knows that I have anxiety issues. She understood my shock. We had a good laugh together. And then I decided to get my VR fix tomorrow.
TL;DR Tried VR. Heard a strange voice. Noped out until another day.
