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"

VR Only works in VR Preview [Solved]

Hi!

I am having an issue with getting VR (HTC VIVE) to work in packaged build. Strangely, it works perfectly only in VR Preview. In other launches, such as packaged built, it simply does nothing. The HMD or the controller do not work.

I have a VR configuration and I have tried the usual tricks; "stereo on" console command, 'Enable HMD' BP command and 'Start in VR' under project configuration with zero luck.

Help is much appreciated!

EDIT: This issue also persists with Unreal default BP VR template! Only VR preview works, but in packaged version, the game simply does not work, it only display camera without any other action.

Product Version: UE 4.21

Answer: Enable 'Start in VR' in project settings, add console command 'Stereo On' and 'Enable HMD'. These (together or just one specific of them) enables functionality in Packaged Version, albeit its bit down to luck how SteamVR decides to work. The issue originally seemed to have been with SteamVR which I erroneously interpreted as problem with packaging.

Hey, I am not sure if this helps but have you set up the game mode properly? Or are you overriding the player pawn in the world settings when in preview?

Hi BreakMaker, I believe I have set gamemode correctly. What is more puzzling, this occurs also with the Unreal BP default VR set; Play > VR Preview works fine but packaged versions or Standalone Game do not. Has anyone else had such issues?
