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. Unknown Source Games Currently Missing "cover_landscape_image_large.png"

    I just noticed last night when I went through to change the "StoreAssets" for a few of my Steam Games and the Doom 3 BFG Mod that they do not show right in the new 2.0 home desktop app.

    The "coverlandscapeimage.png" doesn't seem to be used it seems to use one of the square images as it is zoomed in ie the top edge of DOOM is cut off as well as the Project Cars logo the top of the silhouettes head gets cut off. After poking around in the other asset folders for Oculus store games they…

  2. Desktop App Improvements

    • When typing using your keyboard, the virtual keyboard should light up each key as you hit them whilst in the Oculus desktop mode. This would allow you to visually see your hand positioning as you type without the touch controllers. This would increase immersion in a non-touch way and build on something every user of VR also has, a keyboard. You wouldn't need to take off your rift to use your keyboard anymore with this approach. Let's face it; typing with the touch controllers on a virtual keyboard; though extremely cool, is not very efficient or practical when you…

  4. Option to shutdown/stop background services on close

    I own a VRcover, and it constantly triggers the proximity sensor, even with the low-light storage area I put my Rift.

    When I close Oculus Home, it repeatedly opens itself back up, engaging the app and the HMD.

    Though this option would have additional side-effects (needing to start the service up manually), I'd much rather have a straightforward way from the APP to shut down the service (to be started on reboot), for all the times I follow up a VR session with a monitor-gaming session.

    I don't need it to be readily available (people will complain about inadvertently doing…

  7. Remove 'Controller' icon from devices when Touch is set up and no gamepad is connected

    A gamepad hasn't been included with the Rift for many months now, so it shouldn't be considered an essential component anymore.

    When you have Touch installed, but a gamepad off, the Gamepad is still listed in devices, annoyingly. Just as 'Off' though.

    This behaviour doesn't exist for the Remote.

    It's annoying because with 3 sensors it means that the Gamepad spills onto a new line.

    (Just a minor visual thing, but still annoying)

  8. Bug: UAC prompt locks up Desktop App

    If I try to run anything as administrator, the UAC popup appears as expected for confirmation. However, I cannot click Confirm. In fact, I cannot do anything with the Desktop app at this point - all windows are locked up. I have to go to the computer and click confirm there using the mouse before I can proceed.

  9. "Hear non-VR apps in VR" options for both in and out of Dash

    Currently there is a new option to enable sounds coming from Windows to output through the Rift headphones, but it only works when Dash is active. Why not have an additional option for mirroring regardless of when Dash is being used? Say you want to hear notifications, music, videos, etc in VR no matter what you're doing. Without such an option, one has to manually go and change their audio device in Windows every time.

  10. Allow review comments or discussion forums for each game

    So many times I see someone review a game and give it 1 star because of a problem they have with the game. Sometimes it's just user error and I wish I could just tell them or reply to their review but there's no way to communicate with them. It would be nice if we could reply to comments in reviews or at least have a discussion forum for each game where some users could get answers tips on issues they are having.

  14. More keyboard options

    The full floating keyboard in VR is not the way to go, is the most familiar one but is just like smartphones keyboard is not fast enough atleast in a phone you feel the screen.

    I am talking about methods like the one we used to have before smartphones, mobiles had only the numeric pad with 9 keys each key had assign 3 or 4 letters.

    If we applied this principle to the thumbstick each axis direction will represent one of this 9 keys (3 letters)

    Ex: You click a EditText box no keyboard popup just use your thumbstick and…

  15. Adjust tapping distance

    I love being able to interact with items and my virtual screen without even pressing a button, just like Minority Report! Unfortunately it activates about an inch away from the "screen" instead of when the virtual finger intersects with the screen. I would love to see this activation distance be adjustable.

  16. Option to disable second desktop (dash desktop) for compatibility purposes

    I tried playing Doom VFR and it does not work with the second display device created by dash for the virtual desktop. While I was trying to make it work I managed somehow to make desktop not working in dash (the dash bar was still coming up) and doom DID work.

    Please make it so that we can disable second monitor device (and desktop with it) for compatibility purposes. I know I can revert back to the old home, and doom works fine with that but I don't want to rely on legacy software.

  20. Issue: mouse pointer speed doubles while Rift desktop app is open

    When I start Oculus app (without using Rift), my mouse pointer starts moving about twice as fast. As soon as I close it, the mouse goes back to normal.

    It should be noted that I am using Mouse Without Borders app and it only happens when moving mouse in remote mode. When I am using physical mouse, its speed is the same whether Oculus app is open or not.
