Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Gear VR plugin now available but need direction.

I just got the 4.7 update and see and have check the GEARVR plugin, but how do I load up a game on the GEARVR. When I tried it said module not found on the phone, not the computer. I'm sure I'm missing a some simple step. Thanks a head of time.

Hi ChristopherPC64,

You're correct, this is something that needs documentation. After 4.7 is out of it's Preview, this is on the agenda. In the meantime, take a look at this Forum thread. It's an excellent place to gather info and discuss how to's with other users and our devs.

Follow these exact steps from JJ and you should be good to go.

Prerequisites: - Have a Note 4 and GearVR kit, and already be set up with the ability to build and deploy Android UE4 projects to your device - Grab 4.7 from GitHub and run the Setup.bat in order to get the latest binaries. Please make sure to re-run Setup.bat if you have already run it, because there are new libraries for GearVR support - Get an osig file for your device from https://developer.oculus.com/tools/osig/ - Create an 'assets' directory within Engine/Build/Android/Java, and place your osig file in this assets directory. Your project will not run on device without this osig present in this directory at packaging time

Build and Run the editor: - Run GenerateProjectFiles.bat to update your solution - Open ue4.sln in visual studio, and build and run the UE4 project in 'Development Editor - Win64' configuration

Create your project: - Select the 'New Project' tab - Select the 'C++' tab (currently GearVR support requires a C++ project since plugins are not built into the default executables) - Select the 'First Person' template - Change the options to 'Mobile / Tablet', 'Scalable 2D / 3D', 'No Starter Content' - Name your project something like 'MyGearVR' - When visual studio opens up again, compile and run the MyGearVR project

Configure and package your project for GearVR: - Go to the 'Windows/Plugins' menu item, and go to the Head Mounted Displays page - disable Oculus (optional) and enable GearVR, click 'Restart Now' - Select the 'Edit/Project Settings...' menu item - In the Android section, scroll to the top and click the 'Configure Now' button for Android support Set the Minimum SDK version to 19 or higher Select the 'Configure the AndroidManifest for deployment to GearVR' checkbox - In the Packaging section, optionally click the advanced down arrow in Project and disable 'Full Rebuild' in order to speed iteration times - Select the 'File/Package Project/Android/Android (ETC2)' menu item and package your project to a directory of your choosing

Install and Run: - Connect your device and have it able to accept adb sessions. Please see the normal UE4 Android documentation for details if you're not familiar with this process - Run the installation script from within the directory you packaged to - On device, find your application icon, click it, and then attach the GearVR headset to the phone
