Oculus Rift S and Rift


Welcome to the Oculus Rift S and Rift feedback forum! This is the location to provide all your feature requests and ideas for the Oculus Rift platform. We're looking forward to hearing from you on the following areas of the product:

  • Dash: Oculus Dash is the in-VR command center the pops up when you hit the Oculus button on your Touch controller. Dash allows you to access PC Desktop apps, your VR Library, and other system settings and services from anywhere in VR.
  • Desktop App: This is the out-of-VR Oculus application on your PC that allows you to do things like browse the store, manage your settings, and view your friends list, among other things.
  • General: Use this category for any feedback that doesn’t fit neatly into one of the other more specific categories.
  • Home: This is your customizable in-VR home where you can show off your unique style and decorations.
  • Store: The place where all VR app purchasing takes place. The Store category covers both the out-of-VR and in-VR stores.
Please do your best to ensure all ideas are original and have not been previously submitted. Thanks for helping us improve Oculus Rift S and Rift!

  2. Home environment corrupted

    when I'm in the home environment it is completely corrupted all i see is a mass of triangles. I have reinstalled Oculus home 2.0 on both my laptop and main PC but the issue remains (on both machines). I can view the shop environment fine.

  3. Problems when first entering Dash/home

    I have problems when first entering Dash/Home on my Oculus. On occasion I will end up right next to an item that I put in the home. In this example its a shelf that had a bunch of items on it. I pop in and the shelf ends up getting hit, somehow, and everything on it falls off. Then the last time I loaded up Dash and popped into my home the shelf ended up getting knocked down to the ground.
    TO prevent this, there needs to be a way to pin these items so you don't end up accidentally…

  4. Allow selection in notifications that you recieve

    I was playing a competitive multiplayer game when notifications kept popping up that someone was inviting me to play another game. The message took up a huge portion of my field of view, hindering my performance. I can't think of any game, even a single player one, where I want to be disturbed. I wish I would only be notified of anything when I exit an app or have Oculus Dash open.

  5. Use the Minuum keyboard, LEAP motion style

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VmEy9jxwte4

    Typing with two fingers with no physical feedback on a keyboard designed for use with ten fingers and physical feedback is a massive pain.

    The Minuum predictive keyboard, used in the manner in the video above, looks like it would be a much more pleasant VR typing experience.

  6. Toggleable rotation indicator overlay

    The rotation indicator on the floor of Racket NX helps to keep the cable from becoming a tangled up mess. I'd like to have something similar to use in other games with a lot of 360 action.

    Considering OpenVR advanced settings shows rotation statistics as well, I was wondering if it is possible to add a simple toggleable and/or transparent rotation 'counter' overlay. Maybe as part of Guardians floor.

  7. Improve low LOD (level of detail) models

    With graphic settings set to low, several of the 3D models look bizarre. I must assume this is using some sort of automatic LOD reduction, but in some cases the result is off. Two examples are the modern long counter, which has some strange geometry in places as shown in the picture, and the game cartridges, which also look strange in low LOD. Instead of using a dynamic, automatic LOD process, objects should be pre-modeled with low, medium, and high levels of detail to ensure they still look as intended at any graphic setting.

  8. Oculus Home 1.21 not Working with HDR

    I use Windows 10 with HDR enabled. I also have Oculus services disabled unless I'm using the headset.
    If I start Oculus service with HDR enabled then my screen goes black and never comes ack, and I get only black in the headset. If I turn off HDR it starts fine, I can then enable HDR again and it will continue to work providing I don't stop and start the Oculus service.
    I opted out of the public test channel to roll back to Oculus Home 1.20.02 and this doesn't cause any problems at all, so it just seems to…

  9. Energy Saving

    Given the potential that Dash has to significantly increase the amount of time that the Rift is worn, replacing desktop monitor use, please provide an option within Core 2.0 to automatically put the monitor into stand-by when the Rift is worn and wake-up when it's taken off.
    Also (for convenience rather than energy saving) provide an option to automatically switch Windows playback device to Rift Audio when the headset is worn.

  10. Keep the "big screen" game selection

    The "old" way of launching games with icons from like a big screen. That is impressive. The new one looks, like I'm looking at a monitor, just in VR, lame. Also When the games launch I used to see their title hanging in the air in big hangar like place, impressive! New one is totally lame, without the sense of extra space. At the very least please preserve ability to keep the old Home like it's now (I switched back, but it says it's only temporary). I don't care about decorating new home, that's good for women and queers. I…

  11. If I can't get the tear out windows then don't let me tear it out.

    Right now, since I have a Nvidia 1080 card with 3 monitors connected along the Rift, I get a message that the tear out functionality won't work. Fine. I tried going down to only one monitor and the functionality is there so I guess that feature will be fixed in the future. Three floating screens in dash is plenty enough anyways for me at the moment.

    However, the placement of those screens I can use are very finnicky. Because if I point in the middle of a screan to move it, I get a tear out screen of just black.…

    Hello, the Dash Idea and Oculus Desktop is very cool, I have tried it out for multiple window with Microsoft Word, but it crashed.

    Finger crossed its fixed on next patch
    Good job Guys

  13. I see a way to strengthen the VR exploration by adding uses.

    Additional uses for this technology could be to have a headset with specific abilities available in critical locations for helping desperate people in desperate situations. These could have an added forward facing camera to give the wearer and supervisor in a different location real imagery along with 2-way communication between point and superviser. Such could be in an unmaned nature lodge with lifesaving medical procedures. They could be worn by a team of people under the guidance of a manager when doing such as trying to find a child lost in a forest. A headset could even find a place…

  15. Bravo

    D'abord bravo et merci de nous donner ce magnifique outil. En ce qui concerne les suggestions, je voudrais savoir s il est possible de déplacer l'écran incurvé. Savoir aussi comment enlever facilement un écran qui à été epinglé dans l'appartement.

  16. Show hidden icons (idea or its a bug)

    Spending quite a bit of time using the desktop view within Dash and one action I can not figure out, on the Windows 10 taskbar as with previous version there is an ^ bottom right that brings up hidden programs running steam, voice attack and other things, I have yet to figure a way to access that in the desktop mode, I can hover over it, use the same trigger I would use to select and run things but it will not raise and show what is hidden. Out of that desktop it is a simple left click (show hidden…

  17. FYI Only - Google Maps Very Unstable In Dash

    Google Maps is flaky at best in Dash. Sometimes commands work, most times they don't and with no particular pattern. Also, the zoom control with the joy stick only gets smooth in Chrome if hardware acceleration is activated in settings. This is not good because HA screws up YouTube sound synchronization (a known problem). Also the street view icon it totally erratic both on and off as is picture activation. Also highlighting text for copy and paste is totally erratic.

  18. Continue playing music from desktop

    I love how I can access my desktop from in the Rift now, it's awesome! However, not allowing music to continue playing in the background is a bit of a pain. I would like to be able to play music from my desktop without having to have a window open for it.

  20. Dash Belt/Ribbon missing

    Where's my belt/ribbon? (I think you guys call it a belt based on some assets named in the Oculus dir).
    I've never seen the belt at all. I've been told by other users that it is always there when the dash is brought up (oculus button).
