  1. Move dash bar lower than desktop window

    In latest ptr update dash bar (at least for me) cannot go lower than original size desktop window so to see desktop completely need to move bar much closer.

    • home apps

      I think it would be kind of cool to work with some major platforms like YouTube, Twitch, Pandora, Spotify to have embedded apps for when I am in the Home. Like you can turn YouTube or Twitch onto a TV on the wall while using the Desktop environment or have an embeded pandora or spotify app that plays music in the background.

      • Add an 'Open All' option for multiple packages

        It took me a bit before I jumped into Dash and now there's a never ending list of packages to open with 3 items at a time. When I arrive in home it feels like work. I have to manually open a package, then dismiss the three items, and do it again and again and again.

        If there's an option to open all, I'd be more inclined to go through and place everything. I think if you are in it every day and staying on top of the packages, then it's not that big of a deal. But for more…

          • Only A & X Touch buttons should act as clicking

            Clicking/selecting with triggers is inaccurate: as you pull a trigger, the aim shifts, causing irritating miss-clicks.

            You could think it as a shooting with an imaginary gun. You point with your index finger and then click with thumb to activate (shoot).

            The current setup allows you to either click with the buttons or triggers, but that is not consistent and may encourage the more inaccurate method for new users.

            • Wurlitzer Jukebox

              Could you please design a working Wurlitzer Jukebox which can play music from our personal collections to use in Core 2.
              It would be one of the most awesome additions to bring life to the place.

              Apart from integrating Sophia as a personal AI companion.

              • add a friends voice/video chat section

                Like on Xbox party it would be great to have a section on dash where you can have a constant chat with a friend so that when you want to join with them on a game you already have a communication link.

                • Lock the home starting orientation so that real space can align to Oculus Home items.

                  This would allow users to make Home match their real environment - desk, chair, obstacles, etc. This will only work if the start position AND orientation are the same every time.

                  Home's starting orientation is currently relative to the headset, not relative to the initial Oculus setup.

                  • Add a Virtual Floating In-Game Camera Through Dash

                    For those who have seen the movie Ready Player One everyone owns a personalized floating orb equipped with a Camera to take selfies with, except instead of just that, you could place it behind you and record/stream a 3rd person view of your character inside the game to show your friends.

                    Streamers could use this for personal streaming since it's a little wonky to watch their first person head move around fast.
                    I feel like This could be perfect for watching Individual gameplay, whereas VR Spectating is perfect for watching a game from any angle.

                    • Drag Dash Windows to TV's and Monitors

                      Currently, the way to put stuff on the monitors is pretty good, the UI works well, no complaints there.

                      But I think it'd be nice if we could drag a window we had open in dash over a TV and it would "snap" onto it. Pretty simple :)

                      • Make the Dash buttons pop off the dashbar into a 3D button

                        I've had a problem for a while now where even though Dash's bar is very easy to navigate, pressing the buttons (especially when posed with the pointer finger extended) is very difficult because the hand doesn't lock to the button and depress it, it just moves through a flat surface and then the button may or may not scale a little bit before activating. I think a way more VR-focused way of using Dash would be for the buttons to be flat when not in view, but when they are on the dash panel they extend upward off the dash…

                        • Allow distance adjustment of the curved snap grid

                          I use my desktop via Dash A LOT, and I switch between VR apps and using the desktop frequently. One of the most inconvenient thing about it for me is that I find the curved snap grid to be too close to my face. I keep having to lean forward and double-tap the Home button to reposition the snap grid then sit back to my normal position so the desktop is at a comfortable distance.

                          It would be great if the distance of the curved snap grid is configurable.

                          • Add Friend via SOCIAL tab while in game

                            In any game, should be a live list of "currently playing with" people. A "send friend request" should be a quick / simple 1 click action.

                            • Movie streaming sites such as Vudu will not stream to Oculus Rift With Rift Core (via programs like Bigscreen)

                              Due to, I assume, HDCP issues Rift Core 2.0 and dash cause sites like Vudu to not allow movies to be streamed to the headset using programs like Big Screen and Virtual Desktop. Watching these movies are my primary use case for my rift.

                              I opted out of the Rift Core beta and went back to the default home and streaming began working fine so the new Rift Core and Dash broke it.

                                      • Core 2.0 Beta causes disconnect of force feedback racing wheel

                                        I've found that I'm unable to use my force feedback logitech g25 steering wheel while the rift is powered, this is only present while the option for using core 2.0 beta is enabled, switching back to old oculus home solves the issue.

                                        • Mirroring audio with Core 2.0 won't work with Dash open or a window pinned to game

                                          Windows 10 64bit | Oculus Core 2 (Dash etc) | Elgato HD60 capture card

                                          Set windows audio to Elgato HD60 capture card. Set Oculus Home to mirror audio

                                          I can get audio out of my Rift headphones and Elgato when not using Core 2.0 beta, or when Dash is closed. But if Dash is open or if I have any windows pinned, the sound will not be sent out to the external mirrored device (Elgato). Removing the pinned window causes the sound to work again.

                                          Want the Dash features to see Twitch chat but its useless if can't send to…
