  1. Optical handtracking for Rift S

    Please make sure that - alongside Quest - Rift S will also get optical hand tracking. Parity between the headsets should be a high priority. Currently there's no clear commitment either way and Rift S users shouldn't be left out if there's not a serious, technical reason.

  2. Continue selling Rift (CV1) cables

    Rift CV1 owners are concerned at the recent decision to stop selling the Rift CV1 accessories only 6 months after the sale of the last headset. Of particular concern is the lack headset cable which is probably the most fragile component. The expectation that we should buy a whole new headset if this $50 part fails is a major concern.

    Many circumstances can occur outside of warranty conditions like

    • pets can chew this cable
    • accidental twisting over time fatigues the cable
    • accidental falls can pull the cable from the PC

    All these circumstances are not Oculus' fault and should not…

  3. Keep Rift S alive, killing it will force us to move on to Index, PSVR 2 which is a shame becuase its the No.2 headset on Steam.

  4. Stop Sidelining the Rift S and its users

    Hi Oculus,

    I hope this gets voted.

    It would be cool to let people @ Oculus know we Oculus Rift S users feel completely sidelined since the release of the Quest 2, and even more so know that you've screwed over people who forked over a lot of money for your products by artificially limiting the RE4 VR version to the Quest 2.

    Don't stop supporting your other platforms.

    Need we remind you that Rift S is still the best alternative to play PC VR today?

    We all know about the performance issues the Quest 2 has with that overpriced…

  5. Chinese users need new download line support

    Although oculus products have not been officially sold in mainland China, tens of thousands of users have chosen oculus. Because of GFW, tens of thousands of users are unable to activate or update the device, and many new users are forced to give up using oculus excellent VR devices for this reason. Therefore, we hope to get oculus' help.

    There are two ways to alleviate the problem:
    1、 Set up CDN nodes or servers in Asia or China
    Facebook server IP has been completely blocked by GFW; Amazon's servers in the U.S. are not ideal in China. (slow download speed)…

  7. Finally an end to stick drift ! Cheap and easy too!

    I've personally tested and used this method to completely wipe out stick drift from anywhere from 3 to 6 months no fiddling with settings required!

    I've bought several replacement controllers over the years to replace the ones with unplayable stick drift and the cost started adding up quickly.

    The solution you might ask, well its $8 and a trip to your local auto zone. Mass airflow sensor cleaner!

    Surprisingly, I've had great success with this method follow it step by step and you'll soon find their back to normal

    Please do this outside or in a well ventilated area !…

  8. TURN OFF HAPTICS BUTTON FOR RIFT S!!!!!!!!

    For the love of god! Why did you add this option to the Quest & Quest 2 but not the Rift S!? This vibration ruins my batteries along with the entire VR experience and I refuse to use it as batteries are too expensive and you give me no option to plug my controllers in to USB… thanks a lot.

  9. Experimental 90Hz (or higher) mode for Rift S and Quest

    As we know, display panels of Rift S and Quest are capable of running at 90Hz, but locked away due to heat or certification issues. Please provide an experimental option for advanced users to "overclock" their device and use it at higher refresh rates.

    We understand that Oculus wants to provide a smooth experience for general customers but please also allow room for enthusiast users to tinker with their devices.

  10. Rift S Cable improvements

    So, I recently experienced cable issues when I wanted to get into my VR experience like probably a good amount of people have experienced it.

    To be clear, I'm no expert by any means. I can only share what I read and found out myself.

    I would love to hear back what can be done or what exactly is going on. Preferably from someone who actually worked or works on these things at Oculus.

    Enough of the introduction, let's get into it.

    My cable broke somewhere inside, give it a little wiggle and it drops out. Give it another and…

  11. Stop Filtering The Trigger Axis Value

    The trigger axis value is filtered, meaning that controllers do not properly register rapid trigger pulls.

    This is not a controller issue but a software issue. It means that games that require you to pull the trigger as fast as possible do not work properly as they are not receiving raw input data.

    According to people who have looked into it this is done to smooth the finger tracking in the Oculus Home. This is not worth the gameplay ramifications.

    Remove the trigger filtering.

  12. Allow original RIFT trade in for QUEST 2

    Since my original RIFT has a broken connection cable and you can no longer get cables from oculus or 3rd party, Oculus should allow us to trade in our RIFT's for credit towards a QUEST 2.

  13. charmedsss@abv.bg

    Eliminate the need for a FaceBook profile and revert to the old version. Add the ability to revert to an older version of the software. For my helmet (Oculus Rift) and not only the latest updates made it unusable and this time, unlike before, there is not even any compensation for it.

    PS:
    After the last at least 2 updates the home is unusable, frequent black screens, continuous reboots. Using the helmet in the home of Steam is completely hassle-free.

  15. Rift users should be able to invite people that aren't on their friends list.

    This would be a cool addition as rift players are only allowed to invite people on their friend's list and could improve cross-compatibility between quest and rift. This could also help people who don't have a Facebook account connected.

  16. Please add support for the new Radeon 6000 series - Persistent banner and not able to use the headset

    Currently if you have a 6700 XT or 6900 XT, your Oculus software will tell you that your system does not meet the minimum requirements; which is obviously not possible.

    There is a persistent banner when you use the headset, and most of the time the headset does not even work properly, making it completely unusable.

  17. Application specific performance options

    The performance requirements vary wildly from game to game. It would be great if we could have application specific settings for resolution, refresh rate, reprojection preferences, FOV, etc like SteamVR does instead of a single global setting.

    This allows you to take better advantage of your hardware because you aren't picking settings based on your most demanding title. Or worse forced to change settings every time you switch games with different performance requirements.

  18. Fix Rift S Microphone intermittent quality dropping (Robot / Metallic voice)

    I'd like to request you guys to fix the intermittent microphone quality dropping that a lot of users are facing on the Rift S. Here's a link to show you how the issue shows up:

    https://clips.twitch.tv/IgnorantAntediluvianAlfalfaPanicBasket

    As you can listen the quality drop occurs just for a few seconds, but it's random and intermittent getting people annoyed in social games like Pavlov VR, VRChat and RecRoom. Hope you guys can fix it somehow. I have opened a support ticket already but they couldn't help me to fix the problem. Thanks.

  19. Support Linux and macOS

    Since many Macs (with eGpus) are now powerful enough to support VR add full support for macOS. And please support Linux, there is no reason not to support it. I dont want to start Windows every time I play VR games.

  20. Facebook account requirement - Selling my Oculus the second I can find an Index available.

    Your lost, guys, requiring a FB account to operate my Rift is the tipping point. Not in a million years I'll sign for a FB account.
