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"

VR Spectator pawn is spawned on death, but not possessed

I'm working from the Shooter Game Sample in VR. The default behaviour on death for the Shooter Game Sample is to eject from the character and point the camera at the player's body for a few seconds. In VR, this process is extremely nauseating as the viewing angle seems to be dependent on the camera rotation (ie: unreliable) and head tracking breaks. What I need to happen is for the controller to temporarily possess a spectator pawn with the appropriate setup for VR. I've commented out nearly everything in ShooterGamePlayerController that has to do with the spectator camera and have replaced it in PawnPendingDestroy with just BeginSpectatingState(). This causes my custom spectator to be spawned, but I don't actually possess it. If I do ChangeState(NAME_Spectating) instead, this causes the spectator to spawn and get possessed properly... but I never spawn.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how to fix this?
