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"

SteamVR motion controlers inverted x/y axis

Hi! I have worked in UE4 quite abit, but this is the first time devving with my Vive. The tracking of the HMD works as expected, but the tracking of the controllers are inverted!

If i attach a cube and a sphere to the right and left hands, moving the controller to the right moves the cube/sphere to the left , pushing them away brings them closer!

I've checked all the scales and rotations, and all seem to be resting at the default 0's.

Any idea how to fix this?

Product Version: UE 4.11

Tried to rotate pawn 180 degrees, tracking is closer but still off. Do i seriously have to manually finetune the rotation for my setup (and all the users in the future)? I'm also almost confident that the x and y scaling of the controllers are also off.

Surely i'm missing something, but i read over the documentation but its so outdated its almost unusable with half of it referencing parts that you don't even have anymore!

This was easier in Unity even though I have ten times more experience with UE4..

im having the same issue with my pawn. When i was using the first person character i didnt have this issue, but with that my character was floating 2 feet above the ground and the only way to fix that was to use a pawn. Also with my pawn its duplicating my motion controller. So its like a mirror image of one controller but their axis is reversed. So frustrating.
