    Reinstalled the game and I am experiencing a black screen in vr, sometimes I can hear the intro music playing in the background.
    Raceroom launches, steam overlay pops up than just remains black in the headset and monitor.

    Lenovo Explorer wmr
    Windows 10 is up to date
    Steam vr up to date
    Tried the last 3 Nvidia drivers
    No anti malware or virus protection

    yeah, it is pretty common in R3E with VR. When you start it initially in VR the Screen is somewhere in the room. You need to recenter the perspective in Raceroom to get the Menu in front of your view.
    To do so you need to assign a button first. That will only work out if you start Raceroom in 2D. Than restart in VR, press that new assigned button and you should see the Menu...

    For some reason all the WMR headsets I've tried with R3E, when the game starts the screen is below me so if I actually look down I see the menu. As above, just set a centre VR key (in 2D mode) the go back into VR

    Is this a Raceroom issue or steamvr?

    In VR, when in doubt, turn around!

    Any plans to address the wmr vr to properly be infront of you?

    This problem only is, when you don't have a proper room setup in your software like Oculus Home, Steam VR or whatever WMR uses.
