    Beat me to it! :D

    I think it's about fucking time that they gave us free locomotion ffs. :/

    Well poop.

    I just unlocked all of my boxes and got a few constellation rugs.

    The constellation looks similar to the Taurus Auriga constellation groups.

    With Auriga being the charioteer I was hoping for a Roman colosseum Home.


    WAAAGH!

    The monitor allows you to embed selected apps, mine is showing Oculus Desktop currently - something different and fun!

    i have a question about home:

    how do you change the picture that shows up behind your profile? i noticed mine looks like a screenshot from my home space, but i have no clue how i took it
    A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
    Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?

    Actually, your specimen is rare item from an update several months ago. Still awesome cool, but it's not from this recent update. I think nalex got it right though with the updated TV's.

    Is there a way to bulk open? I find it tedious after a while and it takes ages
    Fiat Coupe, gone. 350Z gone. Dirty nappies, no sleep & practical transport incoming. Thank goodness for VR :)

    Wow I never realised what a GPU hog home is. Idle in home afterburner gpu usage is at 60-70%. Playing Skyrim in VR it drops back down to 30%.

    Steam VR home space has me running up to 80%! (ss set at 1.8)

    Is this normal? btw I have a 1080ti

    Yeah, I wondered that myself, turn out it's a snapshot of your default home at the point of entry. You can change that point in the menu in Home 2.0

    Carry On films were awesome back in the day  :D

    But with all of the snowflakes we have around these days they probably wouldn't be allowed. :o :(

    You shouldn't have Afterburner on at all while in VR, Afterburner or any other GPU tweaker poll the GPU for info like crazy all the time and can cause latency issues in VR.

    So I believe that I already have the CRT monitor on my home.....but how do I config it to put a window on it?
  • CrashFuCrashFu Posts: 1,349 Poster of the Week
    Awesome, i suggested that feature a while back, though i imagine others must have as well for them to actually make it happen. :)

    Hope i find the requisite item next time i log in on the PC client... I've been mobile-only for a few weeks now ;)
    The next nerd to cry about "the resolution" of top-of-the-line VR devices will be permanently banned from using ALL standard-definition media.  And yes, that includes all pre-Switch Nintendo games. Especially Melee.

    Click on the Oculus symbol on the monitor screen and it will give the option, it only seems to be set for the session you are in, returning another time (after exiting Oculus software) gave me a blank screen ready to load up again.

    Few choices what it will display though.

    I’ve looked all over my CRT and there is no Oculus logo anywhere on it.

    Sucker! You need to buy a better TV ... 

    Joking aside, it's a neat feature until it breaks and it displays an orange circle with an exclamation mark.
