A user is reporting that enabling the override for the IPD with GearVR doesn't work. They would like to be able to change this value at runtime.

Setting the "bOverrideIP=True" and "IPD=" values in the DefaultEngine.ini doesn't seem to have any effect. After talking with Nick about this it should work, but there is likely something in the GearVR code preventing it. IPD is generally pulled from the user's profile and is not something that we generally adjust, so it's likely that this isn't even tested on our end.

Steps to Reproduce
  • Create a Gear VR Project.
  • Added the following to your DefaultEngine.ini file.
    " [GearVR.Settings]
  • Deploy to GearVR device.

Results: Even though setting the override for IPD to true it doesn't seem to take effect.
