VR Pawn not receiving any input events
I am following this tutorial for setting up motion controllers, everything works except that input events (trigger, etc) are never called.
I tried modifying settings for default input, I tried creating a player controller that possess my pawn, but it doesn't change anything, those events are never called. I also tried adding a keyboard event ("A" key pressed), it's never fired either.
But my controllers do work, and I can also print the trigger raw value properly. The events themselves are just never called.
How do I go about receiving input events in my VR Pawn or in any blueprint?

I just struggled with this exact same issue for longer than I'd like to admit but managed to find a solution when searching through settings.
In the details panel for the VR_Pawn class, under the pawn section, is a setting called 'Auto Possess Player' that determines which player automatically controls the pawn upon the game starting. Changing this to Player 0 fixed the issue for me.
Hope this helps.
Thank . this just helped me solve a problem I could not figure out.
I had migrated ant vr pawn from the vr template to another project & also imported the a map in the the VR template. both had an issue where my hands were no where near my HMD, more than a few meters infact. this not only solved that but made my hands open and close also :)
