You can follow these steps-

  1. Install Required Software: Make sure you have Unreal Engine 5.1 (or the version you're using) installed and updated. You should also have the Vive XR Elite headset and its necessary drivers installed.
  2. UE5 VR Support: Confirm that Unreal Engine 5.1 has native support for VR. It's important to check if this version has introduced any changes in VR support or if there are any specific updates related to Vive XR Elite.
  3. Alternative VR Framework: Since SteamVR is deprecated, you'll need to find an alternative VR framework or plugin that is compatible with Unreal Engine 5.1. Unreal Engine often provides its own VR framework, so check if there's a built-in solution that can be used with Vive XR Elite.
  4. Plugin Integration: If there's a specific plugin or SDK for the Vive XR Elite available, integrate it into your Unreal Engine project. Follow any documentation or guides provided by the plugin's developer for setup and configuration.
  5. Enable VR Mode: In Unreal Engine, you typically enable VR mode from the editor to preview your scene in virtual reality. This might involve toggling VR mode in the editor settings or using a specific command.
  6. Set Up Controls: Ensure that you've set up and configured the controls for your Vive XR Elite headset. This might involve mapping buttons and actions in the Unreal Engine editor.
  7. Testing: Finally, test your VR experience by launching the scene in the editor. Put on your Vive XR Elite headset, and use the configured controls to navigate and interact with your virtual environment.
