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 do I suppress the SteamVR compositor floor bounds?

This is in reference to creating a seated experience with Standing Mode room calibration, just as if you were porting a DK2-style experience to work on the Vive (no hand controllers etc).

Based on my experimentation, it seems like this is up to SteamVR as a separate application, and cannot be addressed by UE4, perhaps by using a VRChaperone component on the player controller.

Sometimes, the floor bounds miraculously don't appear. I had a superstition that this had to do with checking and unchecking the "Floor bounds always on" toggle box on the Advanced settings in SteamVR, but I can't seem to consistently get this and confirm.

I know the audience member experiencing this game isn't going to be moving around at all, so is there an explicit command (Blueprint or C++) I can pipe in on the Unreal side to suppress visualizing the floor in the headset?

Product Version: UE 4.10

Would love to hear an answer to this too, if this is now possible.
