Guides for migrating between different engine versions of the plugin:

Option 1:

Go to forum thread and downloaded the pre-built binary version for the engine version you are using (not updated with every daily change, only weekly or with large patches).

Install it into your Engine/Plugins directoy or ProjectName/Plugins Directory.

Option 2 (More up to date - preferred if possible):

  • Clone Or Download Zip and extract this repository to a folder named "VRExpansionPlugin" in your "ProjectName/Plugins" directory, create this directory if it is missing.

  • Add the VRExpansionPlugin to your projects PublicDependencyModuleNames in the projects build.cs if you have c++ code included.

  • IF you do not have c++ code, use the Add New button in the editor and add a blank c++ class to your project.

  • Open up the generated project .SLN file and build the project from the build menu.

You need to have visual studio installed and follow the UE4 setup guide for it: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Programming/Development/VisualStudioSetup/
