  3. Option to disable/enable input devices like the xbox controller from the devices menu

    Option to disable/enable input devices like the xbox controller from the devices menu

    When you launch a non-vr game on a pc the Oculus still accepts input from the xbox controller that you want to use on a desktop app.

    Add the option to disable the xbox controller inside the oculus app.

  4. Allow me to use the app without a monitor

    I would consider this a bug in the software; when logged in on a remote session if the app is running it shuts off and when trying to start it fails and saying it cannot contact the service.

    from the log;
    Browser process crashed with exception: Error: Cannot find module '../screen'
    Error: Cannot find module '../screen'

  5. Oculus app recognise multiple headset connected to the same computer at the same time.

    In short:
    1) allow the desktop App to recognise all the headset that are connected to the computer
    2) allow the configuration of all of them on the same computer
    3) allow the selection of the active headset (the one you want to use right now) directly from the app.

    It would be great that the headset work like any other peripheral device and that multiple peripheral device get detected and recognise instead of having to physiquely disconnect it from the computer.

    Do like the audio system is doing, list all the option and the acces to the peripheral device…

  6. Dark Screen

    I have already used on my MSI PC exactly the same helmet (same characteristics) in September 2019 at the Planeur training center in Puivert (Aude)

    Monday March 2, 2020, I decided to plug in my new helmet, bought a few days ago.
    The oculus program asked me for an update which I did immediately.
    While everything throughout the configuration seems OK, the screen of the helmet turns on, but turns off definitively after about a minute.

    I reinstalled the OCULUS software, changed USB, etc. nothing helps.
    The headphones only turn on for a short time, once the USB is disconnected…

  8. Don't Make Gaming "Social"

    I liked how gaming used to be where your game account wasn't tied to your social media account... for the sake of privacy.

  9. Fix you lock out procedures!

    I was recently locked out of my Oculus account because of a period left in the email that was impossible to see on the projector we were using, which resulted in me being locked out due to trying too many passwords. This caused me to be locked out for an hour with no way to resolve, which is not ok! Even more ridiculous is that it's not just my account that was locked, but the entire application so I couldn't even use a new account to set things up if I wanted. This wouldn't have been so bad except I…

  10. vr stadiums

    Hi i'm a 13 year old kid in a base ball family and i think that it would be great if there were a few cameras around the stadium and you could pick your faivrout seat in the whole stadium. Im not just saying baseball im saying every sport in the world. This could be for all vr headsets.this was my thought.

  12. Streaming for Rift/Rift S

    The Oculus Quest/Go already has this feature, but I think Oculus should add it to the Rift/Rift S. It would be a great way of showing people what I see while playing VR and if friends try it I could give them hints.

  14. Changing Real Name

    In the Oculus software or online website, add the option to change your account name. Being trans and having my dead name displayed is not nice.

  15. Toggle for Oculus Button

    Request a toggle or setting that changes the default behavior of the Oculus "Home" button during gameplay, so that it doesn't pull up the screen when pressed accidentally. Maybe by adding an optional 2 second hold-timer when an app/game is in use.

  17. Option to downgrade games

    Many times when a game updates, it can break a lot of things. On some platforms, we have the option to downgrade to previous versions. On Oculus Home, we are unable to.
    For Example, Beat Saber's Multiplayer Mod was broken in V 13.0, but works in V12.2. On Steam, we could simply revert via the properties page, but on Oculus Home, we're stuck with the version that doesn't work.

  18. [Bug] First start of Oculus software with an additional Windows user ends in error "ovr88948175".

    Because the Virtual Desktop doesn't work as Windows standard user I created a power user. The first Oculus Software start logged in as this additional user ended up in an error "ovr88948175". After a time eating investigation I found the solution. This registry key was missing:

  19. Native BluRay 3d Movie Player

    Watching 3d movies from a blu-ray player should be a native offering as part of the Oculus Rift Platform. 3d TVs are no longer being sold, but 3d Movies are everywhere. The 3d Movie experience is going to entice sales for older demographics that aren't interested in video games.

    Being able to see the 3d movie "locked" full screen no matter my head position would be incredible, so I wouldn't have to keep positioned any particular way to just kick back and watch the movie.

    Many many many people on the web provide details how to rip blurays, convert them…
