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"

It is actually. First, in your player Pawn BP or via code, add the motion controller component to it and set the controller to Left or right - you will need 2 of them. Don't name them LeftController or RightController - something weird happens there.

Next, in the content Browser, select View Options and Check Show Engine Content - this exposes the meshes for Oculus and Vive

Back to your BP, Select Left Controller or Right Controller and then select Visualisation in the Details Panel. You can then select a mesh for the controller.

I am fairly new as well. This worked for me as I was using a Windows Mixed Reality headset until I figured out how to get the meshes showing. I attached the oculus controllers to the component. Let me see if I can get a couple of screenshots. There is also a course on Udemy that shows VR and Unreal using C++ but it does require at least some basic C++ and Unreal understanding.

The wiring of the controllers was done via C++ in the code I have as opposed to using BP.

Actually, if the oculus plug-in is anything like the WMR one, it may not behave in the same way. The method above worked when using SteamVR.

Here: try this. Add a Static Mesh under the motion controller and attach the mesh that way. Here's a docs article on doing this sort of thing.
