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"

Gear VR infrared, proximity sensor commands?

The Gear VR has a small infrared sensor between the eyes which it uses to detect whether or not the headset is being worn currently or not. If not it turns off the screen.

I've seen people use this as a reset trigger, in a Unity project, and I was wondering if anyone knows how to get at it in Unreal 4? Is it classed as an input? Or is there some other function that I can use?

Thanks in advance

Product Version: UE 4.12

So I've figured it out! I don't know if this was there the whole time but after searching around I found the Get HMDWorn State Enum. I hooked it up to this little test in my level blueprint and it works just fine.

I'm guessing this will work on other headsets as well. Hope this is helpful to people
