I tried creating my own volume UI 3d widget using the assets from the GearVR Mobile SDK however I can’t figure out how to get the current volume. Without knowing the current volume you do not know what value to show in the UI.
Can we get these exposed to the blueprints? Otherwise UE4 is still not supporting the entire GearVR distribution process
Thanks Sam I saw those and use them already however they do not tell you the current volume so you do not know what the set the current value at (see any app on the store change volume - quit and restart app and notice the volume is remembered by the device - it’s not reset on an app start)
I’ll try that out to see if it’s all we need - but ideally would be great if UE4 handled this volume UI overlay out of the box as it’s a fixed requirement for every app and behaves exactly the same (no customization)
Thanks motorsep! but I’m confused because I’m using the node “Get Volume” to grab and print the volume value in a Text Box (using UMG) but in the Sound Class reference I select “Master” and the value is 1 all the time
hahaha I would like to upgrade to 4.12.5 or just starting to work in that version, but there is a bug
When I tried a FPS project (from a fps template) in my GearVR the crosshair is not in the center… it’s in the corner of the screen. It only happen in 4.12, not in 4.11. so I’m waiting to see 4.13 version.
Sounds like anything Gear VR related is not a priority for Epic, so I simply stopped using EventReceiveDrawHud and resorted to actual 3D elements for HUD (not UMG 3D widgets), at least for crosshair and back button indicator. Either way you shouldn’t be using 2D HUD in VR. It’s fine for initial tests, but for production everything should be 3D.
If I knew C# and was a big fan of conventional programming, I’d definitely go with Unity. They support Gear VR much better and Oculus seems to be more fond of Unity (they also provide better support for Unity users).
Finally I have created a 3D crosshair as you said (cool!), and now I’m doing the VolumeUI… have you done that @motorsep?
Do you know any GearVR game in the store made with UE? is just to see the VolumeUI because in my project if I press the mobile volume button several times, the GetCurrentVolumePercentage node is not executing 100% time, so sometimes (just a few) the progress bar is not filling up.
