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"

What is the proper VR plugin setup when building for Steam?

Hi there,

I've made a VR experience that works well on the Oculus and passes all the validation checks on the Oculus store, but I've run into some problems as I'm now working on the Steam version that will also support Vive. Initially, I enabled both Steam VR and Oculus plugins in UE4, but when the Oculus plugin is enabled the Steam overlay won't trigger anymore. However, If I disable the Oculus plugin, the Steam overlay works but the Oculus touch and remote will not trigger any input apart from launching the Steam overlay or Oculus Dash. Also, the "Get VR Focus State" will always return false, "Get num of tracking sensors" will always return zero, and the "Get HMDDevice Name" will always be "Steam VR" (which prevents me from showing menus with the correct controller options when using Oculus).

So should I just enable both Steam VR and Oculus plugins and simply live with the fact that the Steam overlay doesn't work?

Product Version: UE 4.21

The proper setup is to enable both Steam VR and Oculus, but only the Steam online subsystem (and not the Oculus one). This still means that the Steam Overlay will not work when using the Oculus.
