  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.

    • Disable guardian floor boundary fade-out

      So after upgrading to core 2.0, I had to switch back almost immediately after almost punching my monitor out! Ive got a big scratch in mine now.

      I use the floor-boundaries in oculus so that I know where I am in my playspace, without the distracting walls.

      But in core 2.0, the outline of my playspace is so thin and hardly visible, and in fact not visible at all in longer straight areas.

      Here is what mine looks like in core 1.0: https://i.imgur.com/UIz0mB0.jpg
      Nice bold and easy to see at a glance

      And here is core 2.0: https://i.imgur.com/e6dsFbI.jpg
      Hardly visible!!…

      • Have an indicator when holding the Home button

        My GF picked up the rift after I enabled the delay on the Home button. She was, however, very confused that the Home button "didn't work". I wasn't home to explain the change, and she assumed that the Dash was broken.

        Perhaps use the capacitive button to show a small blip over that controller, then when pressed have "hold to open dash" or even just a little "clock" that counts down visually

        • allow watch to be changed to right hand

          They have recently added an experimental wristwatch, that can tell the time, and can even be pinned to appear in apps, however, there is not an option to move the watch to the right hand. I think this could be a good feature for lefties(and me, because I like to wear my watch on my right hand, even though I am right handed)

          • Integrate FB messenger with oculus

            A lot of my family and friends use facebook messenger to contact me IRL or call me. It would be nice if I could get like a small message (I'm thinking like a small test window up in the top right or left of the screen) or sound from the dash letting me know when friends or family have messaged me in messenger.
            Also, it would be nice to respond VIA a built-in messenger app in the dash. Like answer calls on messenger or respond to texts VIA built-in app.

            • Prioritize fixing the HMD black screen and USB connection speed in Beta

              In Beta my HMD CV1 ( and those of many other people ) blacks out and it's USB connection drops back to USB 2.0 with a notification message that "Oculus is not working corrrectly" which all started after update 1.28

              Please put resolving this issue on top of the list. So we can enjoy all other improvements again too.

              • Allow strafing and direct rotation for locomotion

                Both joysticks are used to rotate while using 'direct rotation'. Strafing only works with rotation set to off. It would be useful to do both at once. One joystick to strafe(left stick) and the other rotate(right stick). I often find myself having to inch back and forth in able to position myself at a target location.

                The rotation is also very slow. Rotation speed settings would be handy.

                • Fix the keyboard issues on Oculus Dashboard

                  So support has been absolutely unable to help me fix an issue with the dashboard and they pretty much shrugged it off and told me to create this here.

                  A combination of random of buttons can be pressed and it will ***** up the keyboard, we need a buton to reset the settings.

                  • Make the pinnable wrist-watch more than just a stretched donut.

                    I'd like to see a model more like the wristwatch in rec room as an option
                    rather that the big bulky torus that shows up right now. Also, what happened to hands in dash? the whole point of dash was to let your vr hands access the menus, and with the most recent update I can't get my VR hands to show up when dash is open! That's a major step backwards!

                    • Hotkey Toggle

                      Hotkey to pin/unpin unhide/hide the Dash monitor overlay.

                      Crowded cockpits (eg. DCS World, Elite Dangerous) would benefit from the ability to quickly toggle the computer monitor display on/off, by hotkey or voice command (Voice Attack).

                      It goes without saying the Dash overlay should reappear in the same place when toggled.

                      • 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…

                          • Revert some features

                            Some of the functionality in the newest version (added a few days ago from this post) is inferior and harder to use than the previous version.

                            - Having to hold 'X' for right click instead of just pressing it

                            - It's seemingly attempting to load the Home in the background

                            performance hits whilst it is attempting this as well.

                            • 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 :)

                              • 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.

                                      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.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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.
