engine.oculus Functions

This set of functions is available when the AppOculus plugin is loaded.

Notice
AppOculus plugin cannot be used in a Qt-based application

If the plugin is loaded together with the engine, the HAS_APP_OCULUS definition is set. This definition can be used, for example, to avoid errors if the plugin is not loaded: the code in which the plugin functions are executed can be wrapped around as follows:

Source code (UnigineScript)
#ifdef HAS_APP_OCULUS
	// engine.oculus functions
#endif

Notice
