  2. While I do not have the headset on, my GPU is running at 810mhz,

  3. Bug with Display Fusion

    When opening the Oculus beta software, the desktop background goes black and the taskbars both disappear then return. Both of these are controlled with Display fusion

  4. Add quick Text / Macros

    It would be awesome to have some "quick access" buttons that you can define on your Dash.
    For example - Add a second slide-out row below the DASH menu.

    Click on a window that is popped out and click on an action that you defined.

    Example:
    Telegram / Skype / Whatsapp etc.
    - Add quick action to send message in current window:
    - "I'm in VR right now - calling you back in a few."
    - "Hey, I'm in Teamspeak / Discord if you want to talk - Enjoying VR right now!"

    To keep it simple:
    One row of items…

  5. FYI Only - Google Maps Very Unstable In Dash

    Google Maps is flaky at best in Dash. Sometimes commands work, most times they don't and with no particular pattern. Also, the zoom control with the joy stick only gets smooth in Chrome if hardware acceleration is activated in settings. This is not good because HA screws up YouTube sound synchronization (a known problem). Also the street view icon it totally erratic both on and off as is picture activation. Also highlighting text for copy and paste is totally erratic.

  6. Resizing und placement of store windows

    Until we can walk around in the store please make it possible to position and resize the store windows like the windows in Dash to make them easier to read and use.

  7. Fix keyboard and mouse support in non-administrator accounts

    If you are using a standard user account the keyboard and mouse do not work. Fix this.

    On screen keyboard does not appear.
    Mouse click do not register.

  8. Fix the reflection map on the achievment panels.

    It has a weird high contrast line in there which is really obvious, and it waves around distractingly/unrealistically, relative to your head movement.

  9. Change window resolution when resizing

    Since most of the desktop function from inside dash will be used to browser the web, it would be amazing if windows can change resolution when being resolution. As most of the web is responsive these days, the web would automatically adapt to lower resolution and display mobile-like version, therefore making even small and distant windows possible in VR.

  10. Collectibles/Loot Box

    I dislike the idea of "loot crates" even if they are unpaid. It seems silly to force us to wait to create our ideal environment. It isn't rewarding in the slightest.

    I'd say the only acceptable scenario for collectibles is through unlocking them with in-game achievements that would look way fancier than the paper trophies we currently have.

    Another case would be receiving game objects/models for use in home upon purchase of said game.

    ie: superhot character model for getting 'red' on all the real-time trials

  11. Make New Friends

    The Make New Friends option in the Home desktop app should be easily accessable with dash while in a game.

  12. When holding an object allow deletion by throwing the object

    When picking up and editing objects, allow deletion of objects by throwing throw them. The way the objects stop in space after letting go is jarring.

  13. Hot key list attached to keyboard

    Adding a costumizable hot key list for each program that uses the keyboard. This makes using applications that use hot keys heavily, possible to use in VR.

  15. personalised ui navigation

    I use alot of programs such as 3ds max/photoshop/solidworks and it would be nice to add those shortcuts to the main ui. Also it would be a nice idea to have the ui to slight hover towards your hand once you scroll your hand over so you can get a better feeling to what you want to select.

  16. Use Touchscreen keyboard instead of on screen keyboard

    Using touch keyboard would be more better for oculus touch and it has more input option than just normal keyboard

  17. 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.

  19. Parental Controls

    The oculus rift is severely lacking proper parental controls. I bought a Rift for myself and my family. I don't want my children to have access to the games and applications that I downloaded for myself.

    There is currently no method to restrict application usage or even application purchases.

    There should be a way to require a pin or password to be entered in order to activate or purchase non white-listed applications.
