Gear VR Please help with the motion controller setup. I am on UE 4.16.1 (stock) and this is my initial setup (on tick EV_GearVRController is called): Controller shows up in the game (since I run dev build from apk, I have to press any button on the controller for it to initialize), but it doesn't rotate with camera (doesn't stay on the right side) as I turn 360 deg. in the swivel chair.

How to Choose the Best Typographic System for Your Global Game. Gear VR Phone overheating. You are going to want to look into modifying your render target resolution on the S6 to improve thermals.

Gear VR Phone overheating

I had a lot of trouble meeting the minimum 45 minute runtime required by Oculus, at native resolutions. 4.16 has improvements to r.screenpercentage. Now it's possible to set the resolution at runtime. Previously it was only possible via ini. You can either set the resolution in device profiles, or write a custom script to manage resolutions after initialization. I wrote a blueprint which progressively lowers the render target as the phone heats up. M. Joshua Cauller's Blog - Video: 5 trailer takeaways from Into the Breach.

Developer Perspectives: VR Locomotion – A Series of Experiments From Crytek.

We’ve partnered with the development team at Crytek on a new video playlist series presenting research into VR movement and provide some tips to help you navigate your upcoming projects.

Developer Perspectives: VR Locomotion – A Series of Experiments From Crytek

Check out the first installment below! Today we’re releasing the first in a series of video playlists that presents research undertaken by the team at Crytek relating to movement in VR. We’ve shipped two award—winning VR titles — The Climb and Robinson: The Journey – on Oculus Rift, and many of the methodologies we explored made their way into those games. Some locomotion methods and actions will make it into future projects, and through sharing our research, maybe your own. We will also be presenting methods that didn’t work and what we learned. The Research Researching ways to move around in VR isn’t new. We’ve seen plenty of examples of how developers have gone about testing movement.

Unreal Mobile Development. This guide covers environment setup, project configuration, and development for the Oculus Mobile platform using Unreal.

Unreal Mobile Development

Overview Unreal versions 4.10 and later provide built-in support for Oculus mobile development. Projects configured for VR automatically apply stereoscopic rendering and orientation tracking. Once your environment is set up with the appropriate tools and your project settings are configured properly, you may build virtual reality projects targeting Android, load APKs on your mobile device, and play them on the Oculus Mobile platform. Note: Mobile applications are subject to more computational limitations compared to Rift applications, and this should be taken into consideration beginning in the early design phase. Unreal. Unreal Samples. Oculus provides samples which illustrate basic VR concepts in Unreal such as Touch, haptics, and the Boundary Component API for interacting with the Guardian System.

Unreal Samples

Samples are available from the Oculus Unreal GitHub repository. To access this repository, you must hold a UE4 license and be subscribed to the private EpicGames/UnrealEngine repository (see for details). All samples require a compatible version of the Unreal Engine which supports the illustrated features. To explore samples, we generally recommend using Unreal versions that we ship from our GitHub repository, which always include the latest features.

Licensing - FMOD. We were indies once too.

Licensing - FMOD

We understand the drive to create, innovate, explore. For you creators, we think you should use FMOD free of charge – all the features, no strings. If your development budget is under $500k or you’re not doing it for the money, go ahead and start creating. Simply register for a free license before your project is released to the world. See our FAQ ↓ or contact us for more info. Developer Center. Oculus Remote Monitor for Windows. Updated: May 19, 2016 The Oculus Remote Monitor client connects to mobile VR applications running on remote devices to capture, store, and display streamed-in data for performance evaluation and testing.

Oculus Remote Monitor for Windows

The Oculus Remote Monitor works with any Oculus mobile application built with Unity or Unreal, and any native mobile application that includes the VrCapture library provided with our Mobile SDK.

In today's post, we provide some best practices for setting up mirroring of your VR app on the desktop monitor. Sharing with friends in VR can happen in the app itself or through the “mirror” window. When a Rift VR application is running, the desktop monitor usually shows what the user is seeing in VR in a desktop window.

This is known as a “mirror” window. Gear VR Controller Best Practices. What Does the Gear VR Controller Provide? The Gear VR Controller provides the following inputs: Trigger—a binary button press.Touchpad surface—capacitive touch detection, provides a highly accurate position.Touchpad click—another binary button. Back button—a button to back out of UI or quit a title. This button has a few rules and requirements. See the bottom section of this page for more information.Rotation—we provide highly accurate rotational tracking for the controller.Linear Acceleration—The controller contains an accelerometer, which can be useful for throwing or hitting, but cannot be used to calculate velocity or position with significant accuracy.

The controller also provides volume up, volume down, and home buttons, but these are reserved by the system. Tech Notes: Detecting Reset View Events with Unreal. People using Rift aren’t always facing the same direction or sitting in the exact same place when using VR applications. While the Oculus Guardian System works well for keeping people aware of their predefined play area’s boundaries, sometimes people prefer to reposition themselves or simply face a different direction while playing. There are any number of reasons why people might want to face a different direction or shift where they’re sitting or standing while using Rift—it might be as simple as using a different chair or footrest that requires them to face a different direction.

That’s why it’s important that applications support the “Reset View in VR” command available in the Oculus Universal Menu. When a person resets the view in the Universal Menu, the VR application should detect this event and use the current position and orientation of the HMD as the default location with a forward-facing orientation. This will create the two nodes required for detecting the event. Oculus Developer Center Overview. Making Bullet Train and Going off the Rails in VR.
