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 player height not working in 4.17

Hi, upgraded to 4.17 today and now the automatic player height setup (from the VR template) is no longer working. When i press VR Preview my eye height is at floor level. Still works correctly in 4.16 Any ideas? I use the Oculus HMD

Product Version: UE 4.17

I have also been experiencing this issue since the first preview of 4.17. PIE VR preview takes the current physical HMD position as the Floor position - the only way around this has been to offset the camera or place the rift on the floor before previewing. VR preview works fine on the vive though.

Also experiencing this and confirmed its not an issue in the last build we made using 4.16. Vive works fine.

You can go into your Pawn blueprint, look for the node "Switch on Name" where it checks for OculusRift, change that to OculusHMD. That's where it sets up tracking origin and that name changed it seems.

That did it. @huggre make sure you set this as the resolution!

Thats it, thanks. Should probably be changed in the template so lets hope Epic fixes this issue.

Fixed! Thanks for this! Instead of renaming the "OculusRift" output, I just added a new pin called "OculusHMD" and output it to the same node as "OculusRift"
