Welcome to Unreal

This page describes how you can set up and use the Unreal development environment for the Varjo VR-1. Please make sure you have read Difference between SteamVR™ and Varjo Base before beginning development.

To be able to set-up the Unreal environment you need the following setup: 

 

Getting Started 

This section will guide you through getting the Unreal set up and the first example scene running in the VR-1.
