Solutions

Good lighting

Make sure your room has enough light so that your face is clearly visible and evenly lit. Try to minimize side or back lighting, especially from a window.

Illuminate players from the front, as if you were taking a picture of them.

Make sure the room is brightly lit.

Poor lighting

Some lighting conditions can make it difficult for Kinect to identify you or track your movements.

For best results, avoid positioning either the players or the sensor in direct sunlight.
