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"

Hand tracking plugin crashes the engine (Vive Pro)

I am trying to set up hand tracking for the Vive Pro. I followed the instructions here and set up everything accordingly. Vive's cameras are on in steamVR settings and working fine. Everything compiled normally (i'm using the VR template, no c++) Changed game modes and everything just like in the guide. When I open the level provided with the plugin and hit play in VR it crashes the engine.

Can anyone help? Thanks!

Product Version: UE 4.21

Hi, sorry I am unable to help you, but I was stopped even earlier. I followed those steps too but when I rebuild the C++ project that page says that "the plugin modules and source code will appear in project explorer." but nothing happens.

Did you copy the files manually?

I don't have a c++ project. Mine is a blueprints normal one. It's still not clear to me whether the hand tracking should work for non c++ projects too. As for the content, it is there, i don't have to move it manually.

I fixed that, I didn't know that the plugin content visibility was an option that could be enabled. Anyway I tried again with an empty BP project and it worked (with the sample map). This is with UE 4.21.2. The only thing I have noticed is that the headset must be in a visible location (from the base stations) before it starts. If it cannot be seen the plugin had trouble starting.
