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. Low framerate warning

    An option to show a warning if the framerate in games is below 90 fps for a certain amount of time or if a specific amount of frames are dropped in a certain timeframe.

    This would make it so much easier to find the right graphics/supersampling settings.

  2. An option to always show a reference to sensors (transparent or customizable ones) for front reference

    Sometimes it's easy to be disoriented when playing with a 2 sensors setup. You know it's not working because the tracking just don't work fine. A simple reference to the sensors in the user interface would be great, so you can always know where are you in the room.

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  6. [Bug] Virtual keyboard and destop problems when Windows DPI scale set high.

    3D Virtual keyboard has no keys but appears 2-dimensionally (and is usable) in the corner of the virtual desktop window. Manipulating virtual desktop items becomes problematic after a short time (possibly related). Unusable (cropped sections of the desktop) secondary windows appear when dragging windows out of the desktop, also possibly related. Finally my real keyboard's key-mapping becomes scrambled after using the virtual keyboard, remedied by logging out and logging back in.

  8. Small capture of text being typed built into the keyboard

    Typing in VR requires you to be watching the keyboard, but most times that means you can't see the panel you're typing to easily.

    Include a capture of the zone your typing to in a small window within the virtual keyboard allowing mistakes or typo's to be edited easily without the glancing back and forth.

  9. Disable Windows option to make virtual monitor the 'main display'

    Windows Settings allows the virtual monitor to be set as the main display. Doing so will cause Core 2.0 software to report a 'critical error'. Oculus software seems to continue to work ok but will always report this critical error. The only remedy for me was to perform a system restore and re-install oculus software.

  10. 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).

  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.…

  13. [Bug?]Playing a game with Dash

    awesome if I can play a game with using Dash like surfing the internet.
    I tried and found that it works well with a few apps like Google Earth VR and Quill, but mostly, when I push Oculus Home button, an app stops.
    Then, even if it works, it is not rendered well.(if there is an object between me and the window, I can still see the window. But it shouldn't.)

  14. Allow interaction with pinned windows by long pressing the menu button.

    A quick press would still open dash, but a long press would just show your hands and allow interacting with pinned windows without bringing up the rest of dash/your belt.

  15. Have separate volume controls for the VR app and the dash app.

    As an example of conflict, Google Earth VR has wind noise at elevation which cannot be turned off. If you are streaming music from a web page as you "surf" in Google Earth VR, it mixes with the wind noise and is very annoying.

  16. 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.

  17. place and pin an image of keyboard

    Dear Oculus, maybe you can implement this: outline your keyboard using Touch controller... take a picture of it and place it as overlay there using Touch controller. Then no need to track as long as it stays still

    Would also love to do this with, say, picture of keyboard instrument of choice

    Hello, the Dash Idea and Oculus Desktop is very cool, I have tried it out for multiple window with Microsoft Word, but it crashed.
    However it works with single document on MS Word, both running with PowerPoint, Spotify, and a bit glitch with Google Chrome.

    Finger crossed its fixed on next patch
    Good job Guys

  19. Pointer accuracy issues

    Where I'm pointing and where it's actually clicking are different. Maybe it's just me but it's a frustrating issue
