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"

VR_Pawn falling through lift

I've setup the VR Pawn as written in the epic vr documentation and everything works fine. Except one thing: When I want my pawn to ride a matinee animated lift then the lift does not take the vr_pawn with him.

I also created a VR_Character, based on the Character class and this one works fine with the lift. But I have some other issues with this which are not related to this topic (the vr controllers are off and not centerd to the hmd)

So how can my vr_pawn ride the lift? What component am I missing?

I think your Pawn needs to be inside a physics asset of some kind unless you are positioning the pawn directly. The standard character class is a capsule with collision and then a skeletal mesh inside of that. Here, it looks like you only have the sceneRoot which is just for positioning but doesn't really do anything else.

I have this same issue and using the motion controller BP for VR and on the motion controller map. Could you please provide the solution that you used? I was not able to figure this out even with new char blueprint but may have done that wrong. Would be great if you could help us all out. This is what happens when I try to use a matinee lift. https://twitter.com/vredisons/status/803805525695692800?s=09
