    Also please think about this problem as applies to folks who are wheelchair bound. It needs fixing. Soon.

    It's not just long arms that are a problem with the guardian system, small people who prefer sitting also have difficulties. In Pinball FX2 VR if I base the Guardian on "as I sit in the chair" the firing pin is inside my right hip and I can't see the front end of the machine at all. If I set it "as I stand before the chair" then sit, I can see the firing pin but not what's inside the front end of the game at all, because I'm too far away.

    The same goes for Walkabout Mini Golf. I'm either so low I can't see over the counter when the game starts up, or I can but I often can't see the ball when I start playing because it's -- I don't know where, actually, maybe inside my body, or so close behind me that it's impossible to locate.

    Same sort of issues occur in other games, where, when I bring up the menu, it's so low on the screen I can't see it except with peripheral vision, and hitting the button to correct the placement of the screen changes nothing.

    I'm very frustrated with this machine. (Speaking as a first-time user of VR but a long-time user of computers.)

    One solution might be to make adjusting the positioning within all games possible as soon as you enter. Nudge "screen up" or "screen down" -- or floor height up or down.
