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"

Loading screen on Gear VR not working

Oculus Store has a requirement so that the loading process should be less than 4 seconds or some loading indicator should be shown to a user. I'm using UE 4.19 and found several advises how to set loading (splash screen) for Gear VR application.

1. Edit DefaultEngine.ini file and add following:

 DistanceInMeters==(X=2.0, Y=0.0, Z=0.0)

I found several options of this parameters and path, but none works for me.

2. Use blueprints according to UE documentation:


Even if I go step by step it doesn't work. After some experiments I made it work and show splash screen when level is loaded. So it is possible to load simple empty level and show loading screen there, but still I need 5 seconds to load this simple level. And whie it loads screen is black.

Hope someone can help since it is very common task for those who wants to publish a Gear VR application to Oculus Store. Thanks in advance!

Product Version: UE 4.19

Hey since 4.19 the splash is only working on the GO and not GearVR. (same in the current 4.20 fyi)

I've reported it to Oculus here: https://forums.oculusvr.com/developer/discussion/63651/gearvr-splash-screen-no-longer-working-in-unreal-integration-version-1-24-0#latest

who are the best bet to fix the issue as it's their plugin. Feel free to bump the issue up for more attention there ;)

Thank you, man. Now, at least, I know it's not my fault and I can do nothing with it in 4.19 and 4.20. I spent two days on this issue. Will not yet close the question yet. Maybe someone has a creative solution for that.
