Obsolete public static void LoadDeviceByName (string deviceName);
Obsolete public static void LoadDeviceByName (string[] prioritizedDeviceNameList);


deviceName Name of the device from VRSettings.supportedDevices.
prioritizedDeviceNameList Prioritized list of device names from VRSettings.supportedDevices.



A list of supported devices which can be passed into this function can be obtained from VRSettings.supportedDevices.

In order to check for success, check VRSettings.loadedDeviceName on the next frame.

This function will try to initialize only the device(s) passed in, it will not fall back to other devices in the VRSettings.supportedDevices list. You can pass a list of values to fall back to other devices on failure. If no device could be initialized, it will fall back to VRSettings.loadedDeviceName as an empty string and set VRSettings.enabled to false.

You can disable VR by loading an empty string deviceName.

After loading a device, you may want to enable it with VRSettings.enabled.
