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"

You can make a Cardboard app for higher end phones using the current GoogleVR plugin. You can find the Quick start documentation here: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Platforms/GoogleVR/QuickStart/index.html

I have a basic blueprint for stare controls you can use here if you scroll down half way: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/317894/activate-button-after-3-seconds-looking-at-it.html

I get black borders around each eye, using this method. No solution so far. I'm also trying to make Nival cardboard plug-in to work, maybe you can help me?

Never heard of the Nival Cardboard Plugin.

Try using this console command: HMD mirror mode 4

There are some more commands to try here: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Platforms/VR/CheatSheet/

All theese commands "not recognized", using Simple HMD plug-in. Nival plug-in is a modification of Simple HMD for cardboard use: https://github.com/NivalVR/UE4Cardboard i get it to work only in 4.11.2 engine version.

I have never used this plugin so I am sorry I don't know why console commands aren't supported. Have you contacted the creator of that plugin?

Have you tried using the official GoogleVR plugin?
