    I'd rather have a No Home Option as this kind of thing is a Social App.

    Just saw this on Reddit--looks awesome!! Also, thumbstick locomotion in Home has been added too!!

    That sucks!  Now I'll have to wait even longer to finish my custom watercooling loop as I'll have to head back to Home to play with proper locomotion, pimping my Avatar, then looking out for any friends who I can invade visit.

    And then there is still the outing in SkyrimVR with Mjoll calling out to me too...

    Oh Woe! :p

    It's becoming just another social platform.

    This stuff should be completely separate, but launchable, from within a more basic VR UI.

    Are you kidding me??? I just rolled out of PTC, and now I want to join in again xD!
    Well, I'll just wait because I'm scared of performance issues right now... But I'm glad that multiplayer is already here! And being able to share Oculus Desktop? That's an awesome surprise!!!

    @Richooal : All this is optional, so I don't see where the problem is. That said, if you don't want to go through Home, you can just launch the VR app from your desktop.

    Anyone actually managed to invite someone to their home? The friends option doesn't show anyone underneath it, and all my friends homes no longer show up. My favourites list has also been wiped.

    Just talked to a mate via party chat, and the same has happened to him - there doesn't appear to be any functional way for either of us to invite the other person (yes, homes are set to public).

    The new update appears to give you headset tracking too, walking in a straight line (nothing stronger than cola so far today...) and looking to left or right moves you in that direction!

    Nice one Devs B)

    OK I give up!
    How in the blazes do I put the new Avatar Editor back away?? I opened it and have it in my Home, made some adjustments to my Avatar and saved. Now I can't figure out how to put the editor back away?

    Edit: Never mind I managed to stumble across it lol. All put away now.

    okay I tried the beta and there are a couple things that are SUPER annoying.....and I better not get the standard " submit a bug report" response.  LOL!!!!

    1.) There is a popup over my "watch" that will simply not go away!!!!
    2.) There is no option anywhere to invite friends over.

    @MystaMagoo : that's what you get when you don't follow the trend :lol: .
    Seriously though, I could never understand why people would stay on Windows 7 when Windows 10 update was free. Windows 10 is much more fluid and has much more tools (for example, for a system reboot  reset it offers you the ability to keep your files, whereas a system reboot reset on Windows 7 used to erase everything). Only the interface is ugly (compared to Windows 7 that is).
    Also, as I understand it, the old OS won't be banned from Oculus, it just won't be supported (meaning the future updates will be optimized for Windows 10). It will still work on Windows 7, but it will be less good than on Windows 10. That's all.

    Err....wrong terminology there.  It’s called a system RESET.

    @Digikid1 : Meh, whatever. I personally don't see any difference ^^. The button to restart consoles was called "reset", so I don't have any reason to change the name for PCs. So when I talk about restarting PC, I call that a reset, and when I talk about recovery system, I call that a reboot.

    There's only one thing to say about that..............

    I ONLY told you that so that you don't confuse others.  If you use the incorrect terms that you will start an avalanche of people getting it wrong all the time. 

    A perfect example is when people call a computer a "Hard Drive" when it is not.  Another example is when people call Hard Drive storage as " Memory ".  That is also incorrect.

    Just a FYI.  I am not trying to disrespect you in any way. ;)

    @Digikid1 : Of course, I know ^^.

    There's a difference though. My terminology may be wrong, the fact remains that "reboot" and "reset" are similar words (the proof is, as I said : what is called "reboot" for a PC is called "reset" for a console), thus it's easy to understand even when those two are confused. In your example, "hard drive" and "computer" have completely different definitions, so confusing those two has more consequences in the meaning of the speech.
    A more accurate example would be : I called a "green apple", a "red apple". It's still an apple, thus it isn't hard to understand what I'm talking about. And as far as I am concerned, being understandable is all that matters in a speech.
    That said, I will rectify my previous comment, will you forgive me then? (just kidding xD)
