  • Make sure that the PC meets the minimum system requirements for Vive. You can download and run the SteamVR Performance Test.
  • Check if there is a second monitor connected, and if so, unplug it.
  • If you are using a laptop, make sure it is connected to the power.
  • Display the frame rate (Steamvr-settings-performance-display frame timing), then run the game and check the frame timing to figure out what (CPU or GPU) might cause the problem.
