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"

Oculus and Vive control mapping conflicts when trying to make cross-platform.

Hi everyone,

I've been struggling to make my Vive project playable on the Oculus Rift because some of the controls conflict with each other. I'm trying to use the A, B, X, Y buttons on the Oculus which are represented as Face Button 1, 2, 3, 4 in UE4. Now the issue is that the Face buttons also correspond to areas of the trackpad in Vive causing those inputs to be activated whenever teleporting when using Vive controls.

How can I add input to the face buttons on the Oculus without having conflicts with the Vive control schemes? I heard that I would have to build a system that handles platform-specific interactions - is this really the only way and if it is, where should I start?


Product Version: UE 4.20

You can use something like this: alt text

You need to add pins at "Switch on Name" like: Oculus HMD or Steam VR

You can then set a Variable true (like in my example) and everytime the player presses a button (like Trigger R) the Game checks and uses what is right. For example Trigger on "UseOculus" ist Shoot and on "UseSteam" grab.
