  2. 3D Guardian

    Okay so i'd like the option to add more stuff to the guardian. Like overlapping areas and such. I play VR in 2 area at my computer and in an open space in my room. One for sitting and one for standing. But i'd love to mark things in 3D for eaxmple my bed i would love to mark the height of the bed in the guardian so i know that reaching over through the guardian is fine but i just can't walk there. And i have a small filling cabinet which would make the area alot bigger if i…

  3. Allow users to manually set height.

    If I want to sit when I'm interacting with Home, or with any of the demo programs, my POV is far too low. I'd like to be able to tell Oculus that I'm sitting and that I want my POV to be set for someone my height. Some games allow this, but I'd like it baked-in.

  4. Voice dictation

    Typing in VR takes a long time and is super annoying. Adding a voice dictation button somewhere on the keyboard would make that process a whole lot easier, especially when communicating on chat apps without getting out of the VR headset.

  5. Let us launch VR games from the desktop mode/view inside the headset

    Exactly what it says on the title.

    I find it bizarre that I can open up and desktop view and interact with my PC screen from inside the headset, but when I try to click and run one of my VR games/apps from the Oculus desktop app as viewed in desktop mode on the headset, it doesn't work (just loads it in a floating 2D screen instead).

    Clearly, if I'm wearing the VR headset, looking at my desktop in there, and I click one of the VR games/apps in the Oculus desktop app, I actually want to play it properly…

  6. Dash and Menu Color Customization

    The ability to change the color of the dash and of the menu panels would be interesting, along with the ability to change the texture that they appear in, maybe something other than matte such as like a glossy thing, or maybe it looks like felt, something along those lines. Another idea is to allow for the creation and use of skins on them, so they someone can customize their dash to have their own icons for everything on their dash, and to have a custom skin theme for their dash and their menu. That would be so cool.

  7. On the dash virtual desktop, please enable right and middle click and drag functions

    Many applications use right and middle clicks and drags. Please add this functionality to the Dash virtual desktop. Having to take off the headset to use the system desktop breaks the flow.

  8. Give option to save the Dash panel layout.

    Every time I start Oculus, only the "Explore" panel appears, which I barely use at all. Every single time I need to set up my own layout, reopen, resize, and reposition every panel that I usually use. It can be a real drag. Just let us save our own layouts please.
    In fact, that should have been the "Pin to Experience" buttons function in the first place.

  9. Let pass through camera on Rift S to see my physical keyboard.

    I can't do any of the keyboard shortcuts for photoshop, and won't be able to fully have any productivity on virtual desktop. The only thing I"m missing is the keyboard. HTC vive has a program called "FragmentVR" that allows a window. Even better would be to identify the keyboard, and show a photogrammetry version of the keyboard with clearer keys, and shadow of the hand overlapping it.

  10. Option to disable/limit CPU hungry Dash features for users with low spec machines

    A number of users with under performing computers are having issues with Dash 2.0 taking away performance from VR games.

    If the CPU/GPU hungry features had an option to disable or limit Dash 2.0 impact it might help.

  11. Able to minimise/remove 'loading' splash screen for unknown apps that never send a 'loaded' signal

    'Unknown' apps (external to the store' display a generic 'loading' splash screen.

    I've seen that this can clash with the Virtual Desktop when using the Headset and virtual desktop for gaming if the app isn't registered as 'loaded' - either removing this, or giving us the option to 'minimise' to a tray would make things easier.

  12. filter for

    Option to Block Violent Content/ Ads:

    This would be a swell idea for children under the age of 13, people with PTSD or people with mental disorders (suicidal).

    There should be some sort of content filter. I'm actually shocked in this day and age something like this isn't legally mandated...

  14. Please add a way for Rift users to change their game resolution on the fly

    Many titles don't have an option to change the game resolution. In SteamVR, there is an option in the settings to change the per eye resolution. An option like this would be nice for users with lower spec PCs.

  15. Third person screen capture

    Please, integrate into the Oculus Dashboard a button to capture game sessions with personalized views, especially in third person. It would be even better if a new tool could be included in the Oculus home: a virtual camera to be placed anywhere, relative to our position, and left in those coordinates, so that it captures everything we do.

    Thank you

  16. Request: (Small) Improvements for Oculus Dash Virtual Desktop

    I really, really like the virtual desktop environment that comes for free in the Oculus Dash environment. Thank you for including it.

    There is some functionality, however, that I think would make it more useful and reduce friction in repeated uses. These items are:
    - When I have a single display up (Monitor 1 selected from the Dash menu), I can move that display around but when I attempt small adjustments from it's initial position it "snaps" back to the original position. Please change this behavior so if I move it up, over, or down by a small amount it…

  17. Hide Virtual Desktop Windows from Mirror

    I stream a lot and having the virtual desktop widows that display my chat and stream settings show up in the mirror/ in my stream is annoying.

    It would be nice to be able to turn off the visibility for those in the mirror settings.

  18. Extend screentshots to support 360 capture

    You have support for screen capture in the dash, but can we please extend that to produce a 360 image. Then allow us to import them as backgrounds in home. I also have a vested interest, that I would like people to be able to use them in my Jigsaw 360 game.

  19. Wristwatch Button Customization + Keyboard key macro on the wrist

    --Wristwatch Customization

    The wristwatch is still an experimental thing, it is good, but to be really useful it should have a way to customize the functions, size and position of the buttons.
    Each person has a priority for each type of function they want easy access.

    Here is a reddit post I made exemplifying the MIC ON/OFF as the main button because we don't have a simple way to push to talk and/or turn the mic on and off.
    **Notifications are extremly easy to access, making the function useless in the wristwatch

  20. Option to remove the Fade in/ fade out animation to pull up the Oculus Dash while in a game.

    The fade-in/out animation when trying to access the oculus dash mid-game is quite annoying. It would be nice to have an option to disable it so when we press the oculus dash button it would instantly appear in front of us. In some applications/games, that little time difference can be quite useful especially if we need to access the dash right away!
