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"

Set up a keyboard controlled Character in a VR project

In my journey to understand things I wanted to add a second Player to the basic VR project selectable from the startup screen, controlled by keyboard and not by the HMD.

What is the correct set of actions to follow?

Through some tutorials I created input mappings from keyboard in the Project Settings, Set a custom game mode and put in its defaults a custom PlayerController class. In my custom created PlayerController class i wired all the logic for the keyboard input .

How do i fuse this with the MotionControllerPawn and BP_MotionController responsible for the VR side of the project?

I guess I will need to do something in the GameMode like "if player 0 use vr, otherwise use keyboard", but i wasn't able to find how to do it. I don't have a lobby or a way to set who is the host, I just want to set NumberOfPlayers=2 in the play options and have one working with the VR and one with the keyboard

While looking about spawning different Pawns for different Characters I also wanted to see how the PlayerController for VR works, how does it spawn a MotionControllerPawn and make it possessed by the HMD. Well, i couldn't find any since there is not even a game mode present in the basic project ! and in fact the whole thing works only if you press "play in vr".

What am i Missing? what is the correct course of actions?
