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 VIVE 'Reset Orientation And Position' does not take care of player height

Hey there, when using the Vive and executing the Blueprint Node https://api.unrealengine.com/INT/BlueprintAPI/Input/HeadMountedDisplay/ResetOrientationandPosition/index.html, everything is reset to 0. Well, thats what it should do, but it also resets Z, means it does not take care of the tracking origin (eye level/floor level). In case of floor level, it should apply the player height.

Currently when Tracking Origin = Floor Level, and you PlayInEditor, we are at the correct height. When using the ResetOrientationAndPosition node, we are within the ground plane.

How do we apply the height of the player again after the Reset?

same problem. Would be cool if Reset Orientation And Position accepts a position which is used instead of the current position.

I'm also getting same problem, There is no information from Epic Games. This problem also coming in oculus rift (UE4.21) .In previous versions of UE4 worked Fine for Oculus Rift.

Yep, I'm curious about this myself - It's a bit of a grey area since oculus are the ones providing the plugin/SDK to the engine.

I've posted over at the oculus forums with hopes for more info on this.
