Quitting SteamVR closes Lumberyard

Lumberyard automatically launches SteamVR but when I quit SteamVR it also auto-quits Lumberyard.

Anyone else experience this? or have any workaround ideas? Thanks!


Hi @adan, thank you very much for reporting the issue to us. I’ve experienced the same and logged it in our bug database. We will update you when the issue resolves.

Hi @adan That is peculiar. I’m looking into this and will get back to you. Do you have any additional info you can share?

Also experiencing this issue on a fresh Lumberyard install:

Steam VR launches during the “Loading plugins. . .” stage every time I start the Lumberyard Editor. SteamVR starts regardless of whether Steam is currently running. Comp Specs:

Windows 10 Home (64-bit)
Steam VR Version 1485823399
Lumberyard Version
Visual Studio Community 2015 Update 3

Hi @Ocificap, I’ve update the issue ticket with your information.

I’ve just upgraded to 1.9, and this is also happening on my system. I did find that disabling the “Start SteamVR when application starts” option under SteamVR developer settings will prevent SteamVR from starting when Lumberyard is opened.
