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"

GearVR Black Screen 4.13.0

Seems like this pops up every now and then (Unreal 4.1x etc..), and I have run everything in standalone mode, where I built it for android, and it's ok (Runs Fine). It was complaining about some of the blueprints from the VR Template, so I deleted them (All) and no more compiling errors. Before it would build to the device, but not package the build to a folder. Now both builds work, but neither gets past the black screen, when I remove the license (.osig) i get the warning again, so that's not it. I have attached my log, for reference, I just don't know what could be causing this, it works everywhere except GearVR.

And in this Log the phone crashed, and re-started. link text

Interesting, so I just tried it with a S6 the original test was done with S7 (No not the note) the phone, and the phone didn't work. So is this another one of those Exynos / vs Snapdragon issues ?

The S6 Didn't look right, the shaders were "off" but at least I could see things....

Did another test, with from scratch made materials, using feature switch node, just to make sure, base Diffuse, Normal, Rough, and nothing fancy. And it works on S6, S7 Nothing Blackness... so it seems S7 is broken, or I need to set something special up for it.
