    Wonder if it's occured to anyone there that they might engender less irritation in the community if they skipped all this contrived "carefulness" and just cut to the chase with things.  I mean, if there's an issue with the patch that forces them to roll back, or stick with the release regardless, what difference does it make whether it's agonisingly drip-fed out in the first place or just released normally?  The end result is the same anyway.  If it's broke, it's broke, and it inconveniences everyone anyway... if it's not, then great.


    For what it's worth - I just tried removing all Oculus software, and reinstalling fresh from the official setup file, to see if that might kick it into doing something.  It helpfully re-downloaded 1.11 for me.
    ... so yeah, don't bother doing that.  It involves deleting all local game content, so I'll have to redownload ~40GB.  Luckily I have fibre, so no big deal.

    Would of course be far more straightforward if I could just make my own choice when to download, rather than wasting time and Oculus' bandwidth trying to work out a way to game their bizarrely awkward release policy.


    I wonder if the rollout batches are assigned by IP address or something... maybe a VPN would be a way around it...

    I didn't even realize how much the minor tracking errors affected my experience, it feels so much better now! Thanks for making things more awesome :)

    Since this makes no sense to me, and since you have made no credible effort to explain the necessity of it, I can only conclude that you are actually deliberately trying to serially irritate portions of your userbase, perhaps as some kind of social / behavioural research experiment.

    For amusement value, this is what I had in mind:

    lol that made me laugh, just what I needed! :)

    @rjay2b: I don't think the update wait is really deliberate to upset part of users base. Saying that, I appreciated the tone of your respectful first post so don't hesitate to post more. By the way, Welcome on board  :)

    Using the beta 1.12 update or 3rd party software? (my sarcasm radar went off when you said "Awesome")

    Dude! That makes you to become the poster of the week! To bad you have excluded yourself from that ranking, that post would have made it for you!

    Thank you and the team. Public feedback until now is very positive.

    While I wasn't affected from previous issues as badly as others, I can very well remember having seen most of the bugs mentioned in the fix-list and now I am excited to get home to try the new version.

    Thanks!

    I'm getting some friends over tonight so would be very desired to have 1.12 already. Normally I get updates 3 a 4 days later (very annoying!) so I'm with Rjay2b to push that button "upload to all remaining users.

    For what it's worth - 1.12 resolved all of my issues with tracking and height. I'm running 4 censors. The only issue remains is calibrating 4 sensor setup is very difficult.

    I'm in UK and still waiting too. I've noticed something though, My oculus Library service wont start, coming up with error code 18. Any one having/had this problem?

    Running windows 10, Oculus home starts fine, apps open fine....still weird though...

    Presumably not, but that really does prompt the question - what *is* the point of it? - seeing as the only thing it can possibly achieve at this point is to irritate swathes of the user base who are sat here staring at a screen, who have gone to bed, gotten a full night's sleep, and have returned to discover that all they can do is *continue* to stare at a screen... reading posts from people who already have the patch, and for whom it's working perfectly... waiting, waiting to use the headset they haven't been able to use since they bought it a month ago.

    Seems a staggeringly effective recipe for annoying the hell out of people for no good reason.

    I agree it's could be irritating to know some received the update when we don't. I was like this for all previous patches waiting more than 24 hours before been upgraded. I can understand they don't have yet server infrastructure to support upgrading everybody at the same time and need to dispatch this process. During the 20 minutes "awful long' wait I had yesterday after the Nate post, I opened and closed OH around 5 times and suddenly the message appeared right after opening it. So possibly the check is when you open it and not if OH is already open. Also, I have the "Automatic Update" choice selected in parameters (worst checking in case it if it have some influence here).

    Guys, be patient, the wait is nearly over and I hope all will work fine for everybody :)

    Rift users are about 0.02% that of Facebook users. I really don't think they would have any problems with server infrastructure.

    Well it did falter during initial rift preorders and that was on the facebook infrastructure.

    While certainly FB is huge with large resources, I imagine the Oculus Division has it's own P&L and needs to keep lower costs to show profits. They probably only allocate so much to Oculus.
    Of course just speculation on my part.

    Well... that's a full 24 hours it's been in the wild, and I'm still waiting (along with plenty of others seemingly).

    Remind me again... why can we arbitrarily not have this completed patch, which others have been using a full 24 hours apparently without significant issue?

    Still waiting... Please Oculus, you listened to us on release notes and beta testing last time, listen to us on this one. This method of releasing updates sucks balls. I've not been able to play properly for months, why am I always the last one to get any updates. At least mix it up a bit. Or just release them to everyone at the same time, like a normal tech company.
