  2. RIFT S...I suggested giving the Option to use insideout tracking, or some how use the sensors used with the rift. or both.

    ...I suggested giving the Option to use insideout tracking, or some how use the sensors used with the rift. or both. Inside out Tracking is to much of a bug. I say do both, to give options . why not cover all the bases. its not enjoyable when your in the middle of a game and you lose controller tracking.

    Where this is a way there is a will.

  3. GunStock vs. EnergySaving

    Need option to disable energy savings for the Rift S Touch Controller. If you don't move your hands in Oculus Home, the hands disappear and the controllers are visible.
    If hands are moved again the controllers disappear and hands in vr are visible again, the hands should always be visible.
    Because of this annoying behavior lot of people in the world can't use basic VR Equipment like a gunstock.
    When the hands in Oculus Home disappear is the same moment when the tracking in first person Shooter within use of a gunstock is lost and it is not possible to…

  4. do not show 'disabled audio' as error

    I use my headset to play with my rift s. Therefore I disabled the Oculus audio.

    However the app is showing it as critical error. I recommend to only show a warning (e.g. yellow) for that, as it's confusing and I need to open the details to see if I have an actual error.

  5. Allow custom install location of oculus home data.

    Every time an oculus update comes out I have to clean up room on my SSD to be able to install. What sucks is that the oculus program itself is taking up the most room on my drive, with the home data package being overwhelmingly the largest chunk of data (and it keeps getting larger with each update).
    It would be great to install the home data (and tutorials) to a custom location, as is done with the games, it would make updates much less of a headache.

  6. Desktop App: Fix the installer.

    First and foremost. Allow us to choose where to install this app. In today's market, SSD's are much cheaper and storage more readily available. I think it's safe to say most users have multiple internal drives.

    I'm well aware we can "force" this program to install in a different drive using CMD prompt or a Run line. However, I think it's just bad form not to have this built into the installer.

    Secondly, make up your mind on how much space it will take. When I try to install with less than 21gb of free space it will tell me…

  7. 'Your antivirus software prevented installation...' Makes it challenging to download & install. Exceptions and turned off AV, same issue..

    A software update would be in order. Never had problems with software like Steam. Works with smaller apps, larger ones is a hit or miss. Please look into fixing download manager.

  9. Stop Oculus Rift S from entering sleep mode

    I along with many others have the problem of Oculus Rift and Oculus Rift S going into stand by/sleep mode when HMD is taken off. This is a big struggle since we have huge events where we would like to showcase our applications. If the HMD is removed for more than 20 minutes and to wear it again, it takes large amount of time to be back on and sometimes it even loses tracking. I request Oculus Staff to never let the Rift S go into sleep mode so that the application can run perfectly. The users who would like…

  10. Option for Less Exaggerated Controller Tracking

    Recently Stress Level Zero has released BONEWORKS on the Oculus platform, and since I own an oculus headset and enjoyed the steam version I decided to re-purchase the game. Though there is one thing that is immersion-breaking for me, which is the exaggerated hand tracking in comparison to the SteamVR version (video below, I move my hands with the same amount of force in both clips), which doesn't go through SteamVR. I would like an option to tone down the speed of the controller tracking for it to function more like the SteamVR version.

  12. Disable auto-launching the Oculus Client

    I keep my oculus Rift CV1 plugged into my PC all the time and its mounted on a 3D printed shelf next to my desk. Somehow, this configuration causes the oculus software to automatically launch whenever I turn my PC on, or just about do anything on my computer. This is rather annoying, as I'd prefer to keep my first plugged in as the cords are already out of the way.

    At present, I've found a workaround by setting the client to only run as administrator - however it would be nice to have an option in the settings to…

  13. Add an option to rollback the Oculus software as a last resort.

    A recent update for the Oculus software has left my device effectively bricked due to AMD not releasing Windows 8.1 drivers that are new enough for the Oculus app to consider updated. I'm presently being told by Oculus support that my only option is to buy Windows 10 or a new graphics card, and that Oculus doesn't have the ability or intention to make my headset functional again. There should be an option to roll back software as a last resort in these kinds of cases that can allow Rift owners to use their device as they did before an…

  14. Fix dirt rally 2.0 so you do not have to constantly swap the headset to hit a keyboard key and then put the headset back on

    I am a long-time user of dirt rally from steam. Yesterday I purchased dirt rally 2.0 from the oculus store. It was a great mistake. I had hoped (presuming that oculus had done the reprogramming) that the necessity for having to take the headset off to press a keyboard key to change a menu, setting etc. and that hopefully the oculus hand controllers would now be available for that function. Sadly, that is not the case. I constantly have to swap the headset off to press a key on the keyboard (obviously it is very difficult to fumble around with…

    Add per-game community forums in Oculus Store for news, feedback, feature requests and support between gamers and devs. I used the Steam community one to discuss an Oculus store purchase. It could use Facebook api.

  19. Local Setup Files

    Hi, i' d prefer a local downloaded installer rather than the momentary webinstallation. It would help cutting down the download time and speed up the installation process in case of any problems like the "no display port connection" problem. And i am sure that it is even possible to release a update for both the installed app and the setup.
