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"

all projects darker after UE4 Virtual Reality Best Practices tipps

Hi everyone

I tried to improve my VR-Projects by adding the Virtual Reality Best Practices tipps. I added this settings

V*R .INI Settings The following .INI settings were taken from the UE4 powered, VR demo, Showdown. These . INIsettings, if used, should be added to your project's Config\DefaultEngine.INI file, under SystemSettings. [SystemSettings] vr.PixelDensity=1 r.SeparateTranslucency=0 r.HZBOcclusion=0 r.MotionBlurQuality=0 r.PostProcessAAQuality=3 r.BloomQuality=1 r.EyeAdaptationQuality=0 r.AmbientOcclusionLevels=0 r.SSR.Quality=1 r.DepthOfFieldQuality=0 r.SceneColorFormat=2 r.TranslucencyVolumeBlur=0 r.TranslucencyLightingVolumeDim=4 r.MaxAnisotropy=8 r.LensFlareQuality=0 r.SceneColorFringeQuality=0 r.FastBlurThreshold=0 r.SSR.MaxRoughness=0.1 r.rhicmdbypass=0 sg.EffectsQuality=2 sg.PostProcessQuality=0*

After that all my project were much darker. I deleted the settings again but nothing changed. I only added the settings in one project but all my projects had shown the same darkening effect.

Have you experienced this phenomenon?

Its now very difficult to get my lighting right.

Thanks for any help!

The standard VR template which comes with UE4 already implements the recommended VR settings. This should be your starting point. The Showdown demo is very old and some of those settings no longer apply.

Are you sure you changed the settings in your project Config and not in the installation dir of the Engine? This may explain why all your projects are inheriting them.
