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"

GoogleVR: Toggle stereo rendering


I would like to know if it's possible to toggle stereo rendering on and off for a Google VR app. I'd like for players to toggle certain game options, make purchase, login to their Google Play accounts, etc in a non-stereo rendered screen.

Edit: I tried using the Stereo On and Stereo Off commands with this Blueprint script here: alt text

I am able to reproduce this bug in a brand new project. I don't think this debug command alone is adequate for the functionality I need. I need the white line and Google Cardboard setting line and gear icon to hide and I need gyro to continue to track users movements. I was able to confirm that Stereo Off turned off gyro tracking before app crashed.

Product Version: UE 4.12

So2gamemake, did you try the "stereo on/off" command mentioned in this documentation?


You can execute console commands from blueprints using the ExecuteConsoleCommand node.

I am aware of executing console commands from blueprint however, I was not aware of this pair of console commands!

The commands work perfectly on PC, but I tried it on a Google VR app it doesn't work the same way at all. Input Stereo Off and the left eye renders as a black screen, the right eye gets rendered properly.

Input Stereo On after inputting Stereo Off and the app crashes.

Thank you very kindly for your response but I am still in need of a solution.

Same problem here with GoogleVR app. Stereo Off = Black left eye and frozen right eye. Then, Stereo On = crash.

I'd like to be able to use the motion sensors (gyro/accel) without Stereo to make the aiming system of my mobile game. Is there a way of automating this motion control in the camera without enabling GoogleVR?

I have had the exact same problem too. I think it must be an engine bug. oddly enough it worked once or twice perfectly.
