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"

Hands in VR template stopped working. No teleportation, no grab animation

Hi everyone, I've been using the UE4 VR template for over a year now and had never experienced this. For some reason, my VR hands stopped working on every project I have. The tracking works fine, I can see and move my hands, but the teleporting and grabing functions don't seem to work at all. I was originally working with version 4.18 when the problem started. But after upgrading to 4.20 the issue persists. Even within the Motion Controller Map on fresh new projects, both on 4.18 and 4.20, so is not an issue regarding migration of projects to a newer version. I must point out that outside UE4 the controllers work just fine.

I'm really looking for some help here, as I ran out of options on how to solve this. Been digging like crazy but I just can't find a proper solution.

Has anyone experienced similar problems?

Product Version: UE 4.20

Have a similar issue with 4.20. Using Vive Controllers teleport isn't working. If I bypass the "ProjectPointToNavigation" node, the teleport works. If I go through that node, the value is always 0,0,0, no matter where I point the controller. Maybe I am doing something wrong?

I am having the same problem, but with a Unreal Studio project not 4.20.1 in particular. My other vr template in 4.20.1 works fine. I believe some of the blueprint nodes have been renamed, and we need to replace them with the new ones.

I am finding yellow warnings all over the place. For example under Left Hand Teleport Rotation, the "Get MotionControllerThumbLeft_Y" node needs to be replaced with "Get MotionController (L) Thumbstick Y". I have not figured out how to fix the InputAction Grabs or InputAction Teleports. I found some more warnings inside HMDLocomotionPawn as well, inside the Get Thumstick Facing Direction function "Get TeleportDirectionUP" and "Get TeleportDirectionRight"

Have exactly this problem in 4.20.2, with a brand new project created using the Virtual Reality Blueprint, HTC Vive. Without making any changes at all I simply play in VR, sometimes I can teleport once or twice and then it stops working, and the hand grab also stops working. How do you even start to debug this sort of thing?

I don't think Epic cares.
