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"

Converting FPS template game to VR (htc vive)

I am trying to take an old project created with FPS template, and add VR functionality to it. All I am doing is going to the VR template and migrating the Motion Controller map to my old fps project, which I thought would bring in all the functionality I need. Back in the FPS project, I then bring the motion controller pawn into the scene, make sure it possesses player zero, and run. Everything works as far as the headset and the hands tracking properly, but input from the motion controllers does not work, therefore, I can't teleport or grab anything. My scene looks like this:

I know that there is one warning coming up in the Motion Controller Pawn (migrated from VR template), which I'm sure is causing the problem, but I have no idea where to go to fix this problem. I'm a bit new at all of this and I am learning as I go. Any advice? This is what the warning looks like:

You need to go to Project Settings -> Input -> Import (Import an export of the VR template settings)

You can also just create the inputs in the VR template that is requires.

Thanks for the reply. I didn't see this until much later, but indeed, that is exactly what I need to do.
