I DEMAND! My square icons back! I had worked so hard to have everything neat and nice and it's all fucked up now! Instead of using the rectangular icons, core 2.0 cropped the square ones into rectangles!!! UNACCEPTABLE!!! And just when family supposed to come and I was gonna show it to everyone!

    That's not a solution! That will work only until it's mandatory!

    You were the crazy one to install a beta product right when you wanted a reliable product you were going to show everyone :P And the roll back of the beta will indeed work for this family show-off that you want to do, it’s not going to become mandatory tonight. Though I also remember seeing an option in the settings for using the old interface...

    I enabled beta, because... I don't remember now... Regardless, I have calmed down now, and the solution is for the OH to use cover_landscape_image.jpg instead of cover_square_image.jpg! Why is it set to use the square images? Everything will be cool again!

    You can show your family what you wanted to if you roll back.  This update makes Oculus seem exactly like Steam VR.  I didn't explore all of it yet though.

    Won't do that, because seem like the problem with hands getting stuck that I've been experiencing is gone (so far at least), and as I said above it's only a temporary solution, until the new update is required.

    I think I figured out a permanent solution though. Seem like all I have to do is just to make a copy of "cover_landscape_image.jpg" and rename it with the "cover_square_image.jpg" Less visual variety, but boy is it going to be so easy to make icons now! Exit icon is screwed up though and I don't know if its the same dimensions.

    I did like the selection screen in the previous update that was using "small_landscape_image.jpg", that was way cooler, Pain in the butt to make them, but I liked it better. Maybe it's still there, hardly explored much.

    ok, so instead of ranting and being abusive, do the right thing and constructively participate in the Beta, which is the point of the Beta - if you think you've found a bug use the right method for reporting it, don't just spew random and abusive "this BETA software doesn't work" posts on the forum.

    It's working pretty good for me. I'm loving the environments and the ability to visit friends homes.  The only thing that I found so far is a sound issue and I sent in my feedback already.  There's going to be a few issues, that's why it's called Beta Testing.

    Well they said it is rough around the edges in the release and yes it is a bit temperamental but hats off to them I like where they are going. 

    Plus didn't I see in the options the ability to switch to Oculus classic mode? Did not press it myself as there is no going back now for me.

    I don't think 2.0 sucks.  I don't understand all the hype though.  To me, this looks exactly like what Steam had a while back.  Am I wrong?  I would like to try desktop but I don't know how to use desktop with Core 2.0  But I only want to use that so I can easily click on the Onward icon that launches from steam because my steam version doesn't run from within oculus despite it showing up in there, it loads and immediately crashes back to Oculus home when it loads to the title screen.  The resolution on these HMDs are currently too low and I can't believe people would really wear an HMD on their face for everyday office use for an extended period of time, I think that's ridiculous because these HMDs are uncomfortable for that type of work, but when the hardware catches up, at least the software will be in place.  In it's current state I couldn't even use this for word processing let alone graphic design.

    Is this and the Steam VR now almost the same?  It seems it focus on building your own virtual room or space and inviting people to come over?  Kind of like a modern chat program for VR.  I see no appeal in that at all, but I'm sure many people do.

    In much the same way that a sports car looks similar to a scooter.

    They look the same to me.  They both have a virtual room you can pick stuff up in and decorate. I know you can invite people to your room here, I don't know if that is on steam also.  I didn't get to explore it much since it broke my dual monitor setup and I had to uninstall to get control back.  I guess I don't know what's different in this and steam since I don't use steams VR rooms either, I've only seen them when I quit onward and get stuck on a white screen and hit the menu button trying to see where it goes.

    It looks to me like seeing two ferrari's because they look the same, but apparently one is more like a car kit on a fiero compared to the actual ferrari.  I want to go take another look now, but I'm afraid it will just break my setup again...

    Not sure what the point of this thread is. Drama because family would be unimpressed over cropped icons.

    If a thread warranted closure, this would be it.

    Just needs a new 'cover_landscape_image_large.png' in the assests folder, if that is missing it will take the old square picture and crop top and bottom.
    Dimensions are 720x405 (so double the normal landscape) and I have started making some new icons already and will put those on the Reddit wiki.

    Forget the family. Fuck'em I wanted the icon to be right! Now I have f-load of redoing! 

    I want the big screen library view back that uses "small_landscape_image.jpg", that was impressive. The current one sucks! And don't give me any of that "Beta" bullshit, that's going away soon anyways!

    This fucking forums is still fucked with the quote issue! If it's clicked on the quote field, can't get out of it. It's been like that how long now? Months!


    Anyways, thanks. I have figured that out. I looked at the assets folder and mentioned that somewhere above in the sea of angry posts. It requires now 2 cover landscape image jpgs/png
