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"

HRTF Volume Reduction when Facing Sound Source

I am using the Oculus Audio Plugin and have been testing with a mono sound file, with Spatialization HRTF enabled in the audio volume. The spatialization generally works quite well, except when looking directly at the object, which causes an unnatural volume reduction.

Is there something I need to enable or change in the settings to fix this? Is there any documentation on how to set up HRTF spatialization correctly with the Oculus Rift?

Yes, can confirm this. Audio sounds really strange sometimes with HRTF.

I'm afraid Oculus Audio SDK isn't quite well integrated ATM. The good news: Epic is doing a full audio engine rewrite currently so this should get better in one of the next versions. :)
