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!    
  1. Trade in Rift S for Quest

    I feel that after the announcement that Quest will have the option of using PCVR, this has made the Rift S a much worst value.

    I and many other Rift S users would instantly exchange our Rift S for a quest and gladly pay for the Link since it gives you more versatility and the option of PCVR and wireless. The improvement that the Rift S has over the quests are not worth the price of admission. Four months after launch and I deeply regret buying a Rift S.

    The Rift s is simply not worth 400 usd on the…

  2. You abandoned the Rift S!

    You forgot the Rift S and think only of the Quest.

    It is shameful ! you will lose a lot of oculus users at the first opportunity! you evolved the quest and nothing for the Rift S.

    All the other brands surpass you .. valve, HTC etc ... they already have adjustment options ...

  4. Let us turn off the vibration

    I recently had a mishap with my Right Controller and it now causes the vibration to sound violent and makes it impossible to play games when the controller is constantly losing tracking. We should have an option to turn off the vibration as it doesn’t ruin our experience to lose tracking.

    My controller works perfectly fine without the vibration so why should I have to pay $70 for a new controller when it’s such a tiny and fixable issue.

  5. Enable Seated Play for Rift S

    On the original Rift, you could calibrate your height during setup. It allowed seated play by sitting down and adjusting your height as such so you'd be sitting and be for example 6'0 and be sitting down instead of crouching. I don't have the strongest legs and it's not comfortable for me to stand up, I'm sure people have the same issue and I've also met a few people who couldn't even move their legs and were either in a wheelchair or they just sat in bed/a chair all day exploring a new world when they couldn't with our own…

  7. Establish an incentivized Beta software testing program to increase large-scale testing of new software on a significant number of PC rigs

    I was prompted to submit this idea following the recent controller tracking debacle & this comment from an Oculus software engineer: https://www.reddit.com/r/oculus/comments/hobaop/foroculusriftsuserswhoare_experiencing/fxgw1sh/

    I wrote a reply to that which I'll quote here:


    The immense diversity of setups - different CPUs combined with different GPUs in different motherboards with different chipsets, power deliveries, USB ports, etc etc, with different RAM kits using different clock speeds & memory timings, interfacing differently with that exact motherboard at that motherboard's BIOS settings & that CPUs memory controller, with that version of Windows with those settings & those registry…

  8. Fixing the compatibility issue of new Nvidia drivers with Oculus Mediums stamp creation

    Oculus Medium´s stamp creation does not work with graphics driver versions 436.30 of the RTX-series and up and causes crashes upon attempting to make a stamp. From what the linked forum post says it also concerns other graphics card series of Nvidia.
    https://forums.oculusvr.com/community/discussion/81009/medium-crashes-stamp-creation-or-import-help-solved#latest
    This issue has been confirmed upon sending a full crashlog to the Oculus Support.
    Since the update can not be indefinitely avoided it would be very needed to fix this incompatibility.
    Thank you!

  10. make oculus medium and other creation tools multi platform so artists can choose what HMD they find most comfortable/affordable.

    Hi I’m a digital artist and you guys just happened to make the best 3D sculpting program out there(oculus medium). It is literally the only thing I use VR for. BUT I am a HtC user and I am constantly being stopped from doing my work after “revive” gets the boot from updates. And I don’t make enough money to buy another VR setup to just use 1 art program. So I beg of you to open your platform just a bit more. I understand having exclusives, but I don’t understand making art tools an exclusive. Let the people create…

  11. Include support for Arab countries like Qatar

    I've tried to buy the Rift S from the official website but it says the country I'm in is not supported which is really frustrating but I bought the Headset from Amazon and when I had an issue I tried to return the damaged one to Oculus and what they said to me is that my country isn't supported so they could not send a replacement to me

    Why is none of the Arab countries supported? (Qatar,UAE,Saudi,Bahrain)?
    Why is it only the west and Europe? please do something about this issue it is very annoying.

  12. Using The Oculus Rift S in bed.

    I have medical conditions that do not allow me to sit or stand for long periods of time, Therefore I usually use The Rift Laying on my back. As you can imagine, this limits my use to basically watching TV and movies.

    My suggestion is the option to rotate the Y axis while setting up the floor settings. This would allow people with disabilities or anyone just relaxing in bed to prop against some pillows and enjoy the Rift as if they were standing. The settings should not be too difficult, as it would just rotate the Y axis and…

  13. Improve Rift S Touch Controller tracking

    Tracking of the Rift S Touch Controllers seems to fail despite the controller being in plain site. In the attached video, you'll see that the initial loss is caused by (intentional) occlusion; however, the previously occluded controller isn't picked back up again despite no longer being occluded. In order to be positional tracked by the cameras again, it must be moved significantly. Note: this seems to happen if two things occur:


    1. Occlusion of one controller

    2. Synchronized movement between occluded controller and visible controller

    This causes issues with FPS games so far, specifically ones where a two-handed pistol grip is being…

  15. Option to change brightness/contrast/saturation of the Oculus Rift S

    Some games on the Rift S are too bright and it would be great to be able to lower the brightness of the Rift S to increase comfortable playtime.

  16. Create a version of Rift S with hardware IPD slider, for those with IPD issues.

    The rift S is clearly a product many are interested in, but for some of us the IPD limit is an issue.
    I am sure many of us with ipd issues would love a version of the rift s, that might be more expensive but would have IPD slider.
    Then the normal Rift S could be left as it is, and the more expensive with ipd slider for those that cannot use the normal rift s.

  18. Implement TRM to improve performance 37%+

    https://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/research/rainbow/projects/trm/

    Basically, send every other frame on each eye at lower resolution, it can improve performance without perceived quality loss (might be better than fixed foveated rendering, and can be combined with it for even more performance).

  19. Focus more on the Rift platform

    I purchased my Rift S a few weeks ago and I love it. I took me a long time to decide which of the 2 headsets to get (Rift S or Quest). I ended up on the Rift S because it was supposed to be the best headset for PC gaming and that was what I was going to use it for.

    Ever since I bought it I've noticed that the Quest is the only headset that is getting good updates. In not too long, the Quest will have hand tracking. Not that this is essential, but it would be…

  20. They only accept for the quest!

    You think you have the power to ask but it's a lie! They don't care about us.

    They only accept the quest. we on Rift S are forgotten they do nothing and accept nothing! They don't do anything on the Rift S they don't even listen to their users
