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"

How to get Gear VR to work?

I can't seem to get the gear VR to work. I have downloaded my signature file and placed it everywhere. I enabled the plugin for Gear VR. I packaged my non game test then loaded it to the phone. Directly from UE4, and by packing the apk and going into the command prompt and pushing the install. Still no luck. Please help....

I attempted to build a fps level with the GearVR plugin. It does not seem to build for me. I keep getting the error around a "GetCookPlatform" exception. Any help will be appreciated.

We have new documentation coming very soon to help walk through the setup process with GearVR and UE4.

Until that arrives you can check out the Twitch Support stream that we recently did that will walk through the setup process.


Thank you!

This is GearVR for Samsung I'm assuming right? I had similar problems, are you using 4.8 or 4.9 Preview? Did you enable USB debug mode on your phone?


After watching that video, I followed these steps and got it to work
