Install notepad++ if you don't already have it installed : https://notepad-plus-plus.org/download/
Locate your echo arena logs directory. It will either be:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Oculus\Software\Software\ready-at-dawn-echo-arena_local\r14logs
unless you've explicitly changed your oculus home install directory.
Once you have found the directory, go to notepad++ and hit
ctrl+shift+f to open the "find in files" dialog box.
In "Find what:" type "Name" (without quotes)
In "Directory :", paste in the name of the r14logs directory you found above.
Hit "Find all"
Scroll through the list and locate the approx time and date of the person you were playing with, and then look through the name to see if you can recall his/her name from those presented.
The only thing i can recommend is using the safety straps normally because you throw your controllers every once in a while. Other than that its probably just getting used to it. But if you haven’t heard about it yet, there are like rubber add ons for the controllers with an additional strap. https://www.amazon.com/CNBEYOUNG-Controller-Anti-Throw-Accessories-Adjustable/dp/B08P2QLDPS/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=oculus+quest+2+controller&qid=1624872788&sprefix=oculus+quest+2+c&sr=8-6
Please dont sand your controlers lmfao. i play on quest 2 and got these:
I find them really helpful for echo, i can let my fingers go alot more so i feel like im actually throwing something.
Not tried Mamut but everyone says they are good, I’ve tried Kiwi designs knuckle straps and AMVR straps.
The AMVR straps are the best for me so far, very secure, you can get them really tight on your hand so you can let go of the controllers completely when you throw and I’ve never had any hint of them coming off my hands.
These, they come in white as well.
Probably better than the similar style linked earlier as they have elasticated straps for a really tight fit if you want.
Protip, use fatigue floor matts, like this one
There's a blast from the past. I wonder how many CV1's are still out in the wild, that headset was good to me.
If you don't already have it, then I very highly recommend purchasing and installing this USB 3 expansion card. This specific card has a dedicated controller for each port which will resolve all forms of power delivery/balancing issues. Yes it needs to be that specific card, there are others that have been documented to also be reliable, but none come as highly recommended as that specific card.
The USB controllers in motherboards are notoriously unreliable for the high demands the CV1 cameras and software put on the bus.
Every single issue I've seen with CV1's and the Rift S (and extension cables) has been resolved with the addition of this card. This was always step 1 in helping people troubleshoot USB disconnection issues back in the CV1's heyday.
If you're using a laptop, the only thing I can recommend is getting a high quality USB 3 hub with a dedicated power source. Those aren't nearly as cheap and YMMV.
Look for a spa chair like this (Spa Chair), and then change out the wheels for rubber casters so it doesn't roll
I've noticed this is a problem as well and submitted a feature request to have it removed. If you guys would like to upvote that, please do (link is below). The devs do pay attention to issues like this. Thanks!
Please notify if not allowed: We are interested in conducting 90-minute interviews in the month of April with Quest or Rift owners who are users of social or multiplayer VR apps. We’re especially interested in speaking with those who have experienced or witnessed adverse behavior (e.g. swearing, shouting, poor sportsmanship, etc.) while interacting with others in VR, but this is not a requirement. Prior to the interview, you will need to complete a 30-minute homework assignment. You’ll also need to verify that you can cast or mirror your in-headset activity to your computer or phone. During the interview, you will need to share your screen with us over Zoom, so we can see your in-headset activity being casted/mirrored. If interested, please complete this brief form: https://airtable.com/shrlZhI9VWcv9N6xM
I literally just sent these ones to my friend about was still copied to my clipboard. Super comfortable, affordable and it personally made my throwing feel more natural. Also helps that they're actually in stock.
That looks like an awful lot of work considering the "Touch condoms" people use are only 20 bucks off Amazon. I would recommend those, although they may need some slight modding by enlarging the cutout for the grip triggers. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073VD9CVQ/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
The best protection for your Quest controllers is more aggressive Guardian settings.
I have the AMVR grips that strap your hand to the controller.

I had the same problem with that type of interlocking fitness mat on a slick floor.
I ended up trying 4-5 different types of mats at home, and this was by far the best in terms of safe size, comfort, and not skidding.
$70 is pretty expensive for the tools listed. You can cut the cost by nearly half if you just go on Amazon and look for a phone repair kit, (I have this one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0718ZM6R1/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i8BIAbZ106DHH )
This includes most of what you'll need, the only thing missing is a source of heat and soldering iron.
For heat you can use a heat gun (low setting, these can get really hot!) or even a hair dryer/hand warmers will do in a pitch, although it will probably take longer.
Thanks for this, Im already worried about one controller failing, I'll definitely grab another set and see if I can't repair these for a backup.

I ordered this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0153NEAHW
It's pricey, yes, but in addition to keeping one centered, it should also be pretty comfortable on the feet.
UPDATE: Love this mat! Not only does it always let you know where your "home" position is, but it's super comfortable as well. No more sore feet! It also doesn't move around very much on carpet... so no need for two-sided tape.
Tracking is better when the cameras are mounted high in corners. So definitely wall/ceiling mounts if you can do it, they are very cheap: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00DWA0QLS/ref=pe_3187911_189395841_TE_dp_1
There are also versions with suction cup and drill holes if that's your thing.
