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"

A bit late but apparently the mapping input doesn't exist in Unreal Engine yet as of 4.21.0. http://fargesportfolio.com/unreal-motion-controller-mapping/

This is incredibly frustrating too. It works perfectly in 'competitor product name here' but not in unreal. They added a secondary axis.

The WMR plug-in is also flakey. Doesn't show controllers, if you map the standard motion controller with WMR enabled, your character slides around the scene if you implement touch-pad movement. If you use SteamVR, there is a hack to get the thumbstick to rotate the view by editing a config file. So far, that seems the best solution.
