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!

  2. Hide / Minimize Dash bar

    Need to minimize or hide the dash bar, while desktop window still is active. It's kind a irritating to see it when you run for example Netflix in fullscreen mode, watching a movie. (Or is it already possible?)

  3. Reset Home

    In getting to know the user interface, I ended up messing up the home environment pretty badly. Understandably, I guess, the app remembers all the bonehead things I have done. Can you provide a 'start from scratch' command so we can recover the reasonable environment that you kindly provided when we first installed?

  4. Group/ungroup items for selection and moving

    I want to be able to set up items a group of items.

    So I can link a chair lamp and table in a single group, then move that group.

    In addition to this I would like to be able to lock that group so I can't accidentally grab it when I have it in it's desired location.

  6. Option to require button/trigger press to activate buttons in Dash

    I find myself accidentally pressing buttons on the Dash bar almost immediately after opening the Dash menu sometimes, due to the positioning of my hands when it's opened. Having an option to require some kind of hardware action (either button or trigger) to confirm a selection would be helpful.

  8. Support for gamepad

    I do not have touch and do not plan on using it. I am a bit annoyed at the amount of games and apps which are requiring touch as a minimum, and I don't think the Home app should be one of them.

  10. Allow horizontal shifting for taskbar and keyboard, expand taskbar horizontally with additional tabs

    Taskbar and keyboard should not be pinned horizontally and should be allowed to be rotated around you as a center axis at the minimum to push it out of the way. Additional icons on taskbar are currently hidden in a non-obvious way; there is plenty of horizontal room for more icons and there's no reason the task bar's length should be fixed.

  11. Pulling Windows Desktop apps into VR should also work for Rift connected via Displayport to HDMI adapters

    Users of certain gaming laptops (e.g. ASUS ROG G751JY) cannot operate their Rift via the HDMI output due to some technical limitation. However, the Rift works very well when connected using (certain) displayport to HDMI adapters. Since this is working I am quite sure there is no hardware limitation for Oculus Dash not being fully functional in this specific setup.

    It seems that Graphic Drivers (Nvidia 390.65) do not recognize the Rift when connected via Displayport (=> HDMI) and therefore the virtual "Nvidia VR-DESKTOP" display device is not created when connecting the Rift.

  12. A police shooter game

    where you can drive police vehicles and make arrests. Would be great if we can have our own teams too. Or just a police shooter game where you have to save hostages and make sound decision just like police academy or something.

  14. Eliminate automatic curved window area in favor of a manual icon.

    The automatic curving is more of a nuisance than a benefit. Also the placing of windows is very difficult with the center point right in front of you. And then that curved thing messes it all up anyway in some cases.

  15. Add more pin/lock options. Pin to HMD, pin to controllers... more?

    Would be really nice to have more pinning options. This way you can f.ex. add a camera feed to your HMD. Maybe you have put a camera on your Rift that can then to be used to orient yourself. Maybe you want to add an FPS counter or a clock to your display as a small Window?

    Gives the users a lot of options since you can just pin any kind of Windows window to it.

  18. Faster console game launching and more options

    I think launching a game from a console is a pretty neat idea. However, I would remove the step of placing the VR Mask over your head to make the process faster. Simply, put in the cartridge and pressing power should suffice.

    Also Home is all about options, we should have more launching options for the games. Here are a few ideas.

    Other launching options:
    - Mame style arcade box
    - Grabbing the game box and breaking it in half, shooting it with an arrow/gun or throwing it on the ground to break it open, launching the game.
    - Game…

  20. Library: When "including Not Installed", I no longer have no idea which ones are installed.

    In my Library, under each title is some sort of timeframe "5 hours ago", "a day ago" etc. 1) I have no idea what this really refers to, 2) and it seems to have replaced valuable information which is whether or not an app is installed. Now it's very difficult to discern "hey I want to play that right now, but I better install it first".
