OSC as Input Controller

OSC as Input Controller

We support a lot of different controllers in VRChat - keyboard + mouse, gamepad, a plethora of VR trackers, etc. We're opening up that further by enabling you to control most of the inputs over OSC as well! With this, you could create a program to control VRChat with your head, feet, brainwaves, a musical sequencer or just about anything else!

Addresses

Each input watches for data at /input/Name like /input/Jump.
There are two types of inputs:

  1. Axes expect a float from -1 to 1 to control things like movement. They expect to reset to 0 when not in use - otherwise a 'MoveForward' message left at '1' will continue to move you forward forever!
  2. Buttons expect an int of 1 for 'pressed' and 0 for 'released'. They will not function correctly without resetting to 0 first - sending /input/Jump 1 and then /input/Jump 1 will only result in a single jump.

A good way to get started with experiments is to controls to TouchOSC to test them out and see how they work in the client. Some will only work in Desktop or VR modes, and others may not do much at all. You can report controls that don't work the way you'd expect, or request additional controls, in our discussions area (COMING SOON).

This TouchOSC demo has a control for Vertical & Horizontal Movement, and a button for Jump: vrc-input.tosc
