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"

Oculus Rift plugin problem

I can't launch unreal engine. It gives me and error message telling me the oculus rift plugin and module couldn't be loaded. I don't even have an oculus rift. I don't need a plugin to work because I wont be using it. How do I get this error to stop so I can load the launcher?

Hi Dalstrs7,

Just to clarify, you have installed the Launcher but are not able to open it? Also, please include a screenshot of the error.

I have this error on windows 8.1 with the new release october 27 2015. Oculus rift module missing. Is it something I can remove from a ini file? I talk about the Unreal Tournament game of course not the editor or UE.

Hi Muscat,

The AnswerHub is specifically for the UE4 editor. To find the best solution, could you post this on the UT Forums?

Hi merdasss,

Are you still having this issue? If so, what engine version are you compiling?

I had this same issue. I was able to disable the Oculus plugin outside of the editor by performing the following steps: 1) Navigate to Engine\Plugins\Runtime\OculusRift 2) Open OculusRift.uplugin in Notepad 3) Set "EnabledByDefault" to false
