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 Grappling hook UE4

I am trying to get a grappling hook to fire from my right controller hand mesh\Gun and attach it self to the wall. The cable has to stay attached to the wall at the point which I initially shoot at, but also stay connected to my hand as I move and teleport around.

For some reason either the cable is attached correctly to my hand mesh or it is attached correctly to the point on the wall which I shoot at. But I can not get them both to work at the same time, as it will not originate correctly from the hand\gun and attach to the wall at the right spot at the same time.

Product Version: UE 4.16

I have the same issue. For some reason when I start the project and have the cable as a child of the hand Mesh, it originates from the wrist, as soon as I shoot the line trace to the wall it changes the origin of the cable to the floor of the motion controller, but attaches the cable to the wall like it should. Super Strange.
