Avatar animations/gestures not working

So, i went to play VRChat not long ago, to find all avatars, even user created ones are NOT responding to any input i do with my controllers; Animations, Gestures for example.

I uninstalled the game, cleared cache and player data and even restarted steam and SteamVR yet nothing has changed. its almost like its running in desktop mode but in VR.

Everything else works but everything to do with the Avatars. This also has only started happening after i let my brother play for a little while.

Its playable but, the experience just isn’t there. How can i fix this?

do you by chance have gestures turned off in your expressions menu?

I haven’t actually thought of that. I will have a look and get back to you when i can
