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"

No LeapFloatingHandsCharacter

Hello everybody,

I am really new to Unreal and also to any game programming. I used to programm Java up to now. I am trying since weeks to start hand tracking with Leap Motion. I followed several tutorials. One of them was this: http://blog.leapmotion.com/featured-platform-getnamos-community-plugin-unreal-engine-4/

But I always fail when the GameMode is created because I can not choose any LeapFloatingHandsCharacter and I do not understand why. I downloaded the zip file from here: https://github.com/getnamo/leap-ue4 but there was no Binaries Folder like explained in the blog (first link). So I only copied the Plugin Folder but still I only get the Options you see in the picture.


I choose PlayerController. I also can use somehow the leap and see hands but I want to look at the hands like they were my own in front of my face. Instead I look at them as if they would belong to someone else standing in front of me. I do not understand that and do not know how I can solve this.

Can maybe anybody help me? If you need more information I will provide you but I did not know what is needed.

Thank you very much already. :)
