    Thank you. I just wanted to post this so people can see that update is working and its not doom and gloom as it appears on forums. A lot of people seem to be having problems but I hope after a bit of tinkering and driver updates (Oculus app actually displayed message telling me that I needed latest 30/11/2017 drivers) everything will work.
    Wish you all good luck!

    Do you have your Windows desktop scale set to something other than 100%? Apparently that can mess up the keyboard.

    Ah yes indeed, I have it at 165%.

    Oh well, I won't start changing my desktop settings as it took ages to get them just so, I'd write a script to autochange the DPI scale but it needs a restart/logout to enact the change so wouldn't be ideal.

    Hopefully the keyboard will get fixed, thanks nalex!

    How do you click on something in Oculus Desktop? I point at an icon with a laser pointer, press the trigger, nothing. A, B, nothing. Left Touch controller instead of Right, nothing. I tried using my actual mouse, doesn't even show up. I then launched Virtual Desktop...holy cow that app has been hosed by this update. Totally non-responsive, flickering, bad.

    Edit: OK, after I took off the headset, browsed to here, made the post, I then put the headset back on, brought up Oculus Desktop, and I could interact with the web browser. I then minimized the web browser, and it all works fine.

    Nothing to see here, just a beta issue!

    It's pretty good, I hated it at first as I don't like change and wanted to live forever in my garden in the sky with my fish pond. I thought this would finally allow me to explore my house that I've been looking longily at for four months. But no, they fucking evicted me!!!

    Once I'd had a cry and threw the virtual objects in my new house into the sea below in a petty rage I quite enjoyed the customisation options. The console and cartridges serve no practical purpose whatsoever but it's cool to do so I spent 30 minutes setting up a little area by the fireplace where I could sit on my virtual sofa and load games off my coffee table. Of course I did it so it matched my real sofa and coffee table positions perfectly, and it did make me smile.

    I'd like some cups and plates to leave lying around for some realistic clutter, maybe a messy bed and dirty underpants on the floor and I'll feel right at home.

    Any Oculus staff who read this, do you think more environments will be added, because I want my old hangout back, god damnit! And to be able to live in that house, and feed my fish. And maybe purchase a cat to eat those fish, or a bigger fish. And I'd like my pool to have a water slide down to the houses in the river. And an escalator to get back up again. And an Ex Machine babe to spend time with. No rush, I'm happy to wait for a Christmas day update for all this. Thanks :smile:

    Another positive, location change gripe aside, it all ran flawlessly for me. No bugs or glitches that I noticed at all in the 90 minutes or so I played around with it.

    So... One computer update went through BUT Nvidia driver updates are not installing, uninstalling, nothing... Other computer I didn't have the public beta on BUT it said I had an Oculus Software Update 20 hours ago but it didn't install... My excitement has went away. Many problems to solve. 

    Image result for ill be back

    I hope it's not long before we can invite people over to our homes. You can already do that now in Steam Home VR.

    That minority report interface makes me think of using a PC with an extremely low DPI mouse. So much arm movement.

    All that arm movement simulates how I looked in Oculus Medium trying to make something other than a Donut

    I remember how blown away I was one year ago when I discovered the old Steam Home.

    THIS (Oculus Core 2.0)...is just mind-blowingly good. I didn't plan to check on it yet, but did out of curiosity. Still some performance issues...but it's just...wow. You did an amazing job Oculus. You (the team who did this which I think is the same that did First Contact) and also the Valve guys who did The Lab...some of the best VR experiences out there. And this of course even blows the new Steam Home out of the water, and I mean x9000.

    What does this do that's different?  I honestly don't know.  When I first saw core 2.0 my first thought was "Ok, now this looks exactly like the SteamVR thing"  I don't understand what everyone loves about these.  Is it because you have a virtual place you can decorate and invite people to?  I haven't seen any of the desktop stuff yet because I had to uninstall this software since it broke my monitor setup.  Is the virtual home that you can decorate a separate program from Dash?  Is that what steam doesn't have is whatever dash does?  I would like to know why this is 9000x better than steam when they seem to be so similar.  I honestly don't know and want to know why this one is better.  I tried them both and don't really see myself spending much time at all decorating my space or inviting people to come to my make believe home. And on the surface, that's all I see in both SteamVR and Oculus home now.  Oh and it's a good place to launch my games as I always have.

    All so beautiful and still no managing of install locations across different drives?

    I have no interest in "customzing" a software launcher nor using my desktop in the rift or using desktop apps within VR apps. I hope some important stuff gets addressed as well and performance doesnt suffer too much.

    I agree on that, it is sorely needed and frankly is costing Oculus some game sales from my end. This is a very basic functionality that has been available in most games for several years now.
