    Colors seem to be wrong in 4.15P1:
    Easy to use UMG Mini Map on the UE4 Marketplace.

      Thank you for the info!


        The UE4 Trello road map page has mixed reality capability set to release in January or February. Any update on that? Also, any chance that Paper2D Sprites will become stereoscopic capable in the near future? Thanks!

          The roadmap tells us about the development period, not a release date. So here you should not expect a release before UE4.16, but it could even slip further to 4.17, depending on the time it takes to integrate it into master.

              publishing requirements:
              changelog: now up to version 1.10!

              Does that mean daydream devs are stuck on 4.13 and the official UE4 builds stay without publishable daydream support? Or can we please get it in 4.15?!?
              Any news on this? I can't package Google VR projects for distribution and that's THE dealbreaker for mobile VR

                  Thanks for all your hard work Guys, I had a feeling there would be the second preview. I cant wait to port my project over, when 4.15 is official. I have a feeling thats the last update before we release.

                    Assuming nothing unforeseen causes delays, we plan to still have two more updated previews before release.

                      Hehe. My guess is that get to Preview 6!

                          I had a brief look at using the Logitech G29 steering wheel (ps3/ps4/pc version, slider set to ps4/pc) with the Raw Input plugin.

                          I created a clean project with 4.15, enbled the plugin and restarted editor.

                          Then I started a PIE, opened console and ran: showdebug input

                          The numbers seem to indicate that it senses changes to (most) buttons and axis.
                          But when pressing and holding a button, I get like one frame where text shows a '1' for that button and then it goes back to '0'
                          Axis are also a bit finnicky in that the output changes when pressing pedals, but values are also only shown for a frame or so before returning to '0'

                          This was with and without drivers installed.

                          Is this intended behaviour?
                          Is there anything else I need to do?

                          When using the virtual joystick vJoy, the button is indicated as '1' until it is released and then it returns to '0'.

                          I have not put anything in DefaultInput.ini
                          Thanks for trying it out. I would not expect to see the values popping back to 0 so quickly. It might be interesting to see what the output from "showdebug rawinput" is as that is the plugins direct representation of the buttons and axes instead of the engine's once the data has filtered up to it. When testing with the G920 that we have in the office the numbers for both showdebug input and rawinput do not pop back to 0 or any such thing but rather hold their value until the axis/button is released.


                            Is there any chance for "Function inputs to automatically create Local Variables when added" in near future?
                            If you could do one small thing for Blueprints in this or next release - please do this one.
                            It's one of weirdest annoyance you encounter when you switch from "standard" programming language to fully visual Blueprints. I would save one bad word every time I need to use local variable in complex BP function...
