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. 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.

  2. Arcade games or Gear VR / Oculus GO emulators

    Some crazy ideas!

    Would be great to run your Gear VR games/apps in a "Virtual" Gear VR / Oculus GO from your Home (Same Oculus Account...)

    Or why not, bring Oculus Arcade into your Home!
    It would be fun to have some playable arcade game machines.

    Maybe as a buyable item?

  3. 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…

  5. Better control of the 'stickiness' of blocks.

    So I decided to be creative with the cube shaped blocks. I managed to create what I set out to create, but it involved a lot of frustration. The biggest problem I ran into was that as I was trying to place my block in a specific spot, it would mysteriously glue itself to other nearby blocks. Then when I attempted to move that block (because it didn't quite go where I wanted it), I would suddenly be dragging a bunch of other blocks as well. Blocks that had been exactly where I wanted them to be, and I didn't…

  8. 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…

  10. Please could I have a jet-pack and a telescope?

  12. [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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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).

  18. When sorting by user rating, don't put games first than have less then 5 ratings

    At the moment sorting by user ratings doesn't return the best experiences first. Games that have had 1 or 2, 5 star ratings shouldn't be put at the top of the list as that is very open to abuse and I've seen very old games constantly at the top of the list with 1 vote. Only rank games that have at least 5 ratings to more accurately reflect the customer's views.

  19. Display prices in local currency - old store did this

    I live in the UK. Prior to Rift Home 2, prices were in GBP (£) - now they're in USD ($) and no obvious way to change - this discourages me from buying from the store.
    Can't understand why this is in the old store but not in the beta.

  20. 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.…
