What core 2.0 could improve on

Nexus 6
Had a good play around and i have found a few issue's, i know its beta so some issues are to be expected but here are my views

1. annoying text boxes above your hand, i have checked and the only thing you can hide is the name tags above the buttons.
2. there are hands inside of your hand, my avatar hands are orange but you can see the original blue hologram hands inside.
3. the snap system can get a little frustrating and would be nice to grab and scale as some things seem in your face and a little claustrophobic.
4. playing video's (youtube is all i have tested) leaves a white flashing line straight down vertical down the centre.
5. when playing music from your computer it pauses when free roaming around your room which would be nice to listen to music while decorating your space.
6. the rest are things that i think will be added over time but i have no keyboard and i have no idea on how i can stack multiple windows on top of each other.

other then that oculus have done an outstanding job and i can see my self using this  every day :)

    It's definitely good. There isn't as much customisation as I expected, I mean only one house that you can customise but maybe they will add more. It would be cool to multiple different locations, a nice tree house, underwater sub, hobbit hole etc.

    I hope they add the old locations back too as I fantasised for months about exploring them. I set my rift up in the lounge, got four sensors and a extension cables for my headset so that I could walk behind me and get in the fish pond. But expanding my play area just moved it further away! Talk about tantalising me!

    Ok number 5 isn't an issue as there is an option called pin experience or something like that and you can put the music in the background while doing what you want. I just placed around 50 targets switching between the bow and the gun while blasting some good tunes out. it literally is the best thing ive used and i feel like a 5 year old

    an option for full locomotion would be nice too I hate teleporting to the point I would prefer the old home over this but if I had thumbstick movement that it would be a cool place to get away in

    Yes! Why can't we at least have the OPTION for full locomotion? Some of us don't get motion sick and it's very frustrating to be limited to a locomotion system for people who do.

    in case you still can't find it - small grey keyboard icon in the bottom right hand corner of applicable windows
    Though you are more than slightly incoherent, I agree with you Madam,
    a plum is a terrible thing to do to a nostril.

    Yes, this would be awesome! Hopefully Frontier Developments will add a virtual keyboard for VR players in the future, but if this could be enabled it would be a massive quality of life improvement for all VR commanders o7

     I second (third?) that. Teleporting around inside a virtual room feels quite silly and disorienting.
    Hey, did you check out my VR conversion of No One Lives Forever 2?

    I had the hands inside hands issue when I somehow accidentally launched Giant Cop, and then I had my green avatar hands embedded into the cartoony gloved Giant Cop hands. It was very strange looking! I had to quit Giant Cop to get rid of it. I’ve had the white flashing line issue when I called up Dash from within Robo Recall. It seemed to be a rift (if you’ll pardon the expression) in the foreground Dash window that allowed the background Robo Recall “Do you want to continue” screen to show through.

    I had another weird issue today where my right hand floated to the LEFT of my left hand! When I stretched my right arm out as far as I could, the avatar right hand moved in an arc BEHIND me! I had to physically move my body as far over as I could so my right hand really did line up with the avatar hand. That seemed to snap some sense into it and it behaved properly after that.

    I also would like to see an option for seated play. 

    One thing I love about From Other Suns is it has a seated option so that your height is adjusted as you move around. 

    If I could have full locomotion and I could have a seated height adjustment, and if I could invite friends and if I could launch games together with friends that would be awesome.
