    Can someone who updated (or cybereality) tell me if the Guardian system now works in Classic Home?

    EDIT: It works!

    I'm not sure if that bug was fixed, but please give it a try and submit a bug report if you find any issues. If I remember correct, you can revert to the non-beta release (meaning leaving the test channel, just switching to classic home is not the same thing) if you want to use the old home interface for the time being.

    I've already been in communication with Oculus Support; submitted my bug report and Oculus logs, and reverted to the non-beta release. Here's to hoping it got fixed with this patch so I can enjoy Rift Core 2.0 once again!

    Awesome! I'm looking forward to testing the performance improvements for non-native apps, and I'm sure plenty of people will be happy about multiple library locations! (I'm using a 1 TB SSD dedicated to VR apps, so it's not an issue for me yet, but it's getting there!) The library details panel sounds good too!

    I don't see any options in the new Dash to Manage or choose a new hard drive for installing VR apps? Am I missing something? I uninstalled one, re-installed it and it went to the same location as before, no prompt asking for a new location to be set. Thanks! Would love to move a few of my popular VR apps to my SSD and leave the bulk of them on the Firecuda SSHD which has been a let down in terms of load time.

    My Oculus home is showing 1.22 and I've checked settings > General but there's no options to change the default library folder.

    Same. On Oculus 1.22, no option to change library.

    The library options are under Settings -> General -> Library Locations.



    When you add a new location, please set it to default (right dots) so that it will be active for your next game download.

    cybereality , do we need to re-install the beta because my General Settings look nothing like that...

    Same here.   General tab says Oculus App Version 1.22.0.516346 (1.22.0.516639), and the General tab does not have Library Locations listed at all.

    as you'll see, not everyone is getting the "add location" button in the "general" tab and I am on the new 1.22 version...

    Yep. I got a Samsung 256 EVO M2 drive for my Win 10 to boot and a 1TB FireCuda in my new DIY system. All I can tell you is that in the old machine which went back to Best Buy for other issues, I had no notifications about loading delays on a regular SATA drive.

    With the FireCuda I frequently see the messages about taking long time to load the game.
    WTF?!?!? Really? I plan to save for at LEAST a 512 to 1TB SSD sometime this year. Just now low importance after the huge investment in the new machine and other holiday expenses.
  • cyberealitycybereality Posts: 25,821 Oculus Staff
    I have a FireCuda drive on a few of my machines. It's nice, but it won't be as fast as an SSD, unless in specific instances (like loading Windows or opening a web browser or very frequently used apps). The cache on them is not super larger, for example, it may be 8GB of flash memory commonly. This is not even big enough to hold a single game sometimes, so it will rely on the slower spinning disk. When you say your SATA drive was faster, I assume a SATA SSD?

    See screenshot below; this revision partially fixed the missing keyboard issue for me--it now pops the window where the keyboard used to go, but the keyboard itself isn't there (it does show up on screen, but I could make that happen by manually launching the Windows keyboard before). Any idea how to get the keyboard back into the right place?

    We just pushed out a patch to fix the missing library options. You should get the update automatically. Thanks.

    Dash still cuts off the Friends list at 100, preventing you from viewing the full list if you have more than 100 friends. The desktop app lets you see your full list.

    OK so I can see the multiple library options. Thanks devs for the fast update. 

    I have added the new folder.

    The big question is now how do I move existing games to this folder?

    Or do I have to redownload them again by setting this folder as default then "installing" the game again?

    Does Oculus Home have a way to scan that folder for games?

    I had about 30+ hardlinked games which were already on my secondary drive. It would be preferable to not have to download them all again :)

    My playtime's are way off.  I thought maybe it was just not showing time played on my old computer, but no.  I replayed Superhot on my new computer and that is showing 0 minutes too.  Some of the newer stuff has playtimes that look right.

    @cybereality Does this 8x MSAA apply only to the home environment or to games too?

    Ok I finally figured out how to install games to a different drive. Got a couple drives added , then just changed the default install drive to one of the new ones I picked, and installed a game I had previously uninstalled. It installed correctly in the new location. 

    One thing I noticed is I had to first create a folder on the new drive I was choosing for it to save it, so I just created an Oculus folder on the new drive. I did this for two different drives and it works fine.
    A little cumbersome - but finally we have this ability, something I have been wanting ever since getting my Rift a year ago. Just have to remember to change the default drive whenever I want to install to a different one.
    Thanks for adding this Oculus!

    Yeah instead of stuffing around I just deleted everything on that second drive and have queued up for reinstall. Maybe 250GB or so :)
