    I just noticed that the Oculus Desktop App no longer displays my real name. (on the main page)

    Did this happen with 1.32 or earlier? Thank you to whoever is listening at Oculus.

    Does this release also offer a solution to switch off in VR notifications? I posted underneath post already in the 1.32 Beta thread, but didn't get an answer.

    >>>>>>>>>>>
    LZoltowski said:
    I just noticed that you can turn "in VR notifications off!" Woohoo, no more popups during games. Yay!
    Could you please tell me where I can switch those VR notifications off? Been having issues with notifications appearing in my VR while I'm in the middle of a game. That's just so annoying and I just can't get the notifications te disappear. Yesterday I had a notification of one of my sensors not working properly during 2 hours of racing in RFactor2 in a league race. Never had those notifications until the recent Oculus Home update, but can't seem to get rid of them. Some help would on this, would be very much appreciated!

    Btw: I got all 4 notification options in the notification menu switched to off already and still I get the annoying in game notifications.

    Ok I just got this update, but the world seems to be shifting about as if I am drunk. At first I thought it was just the game I went to play, but it is when I am at HOME. It shifts to the left or right then back, also front to back. IT does not seem like stutter, but movement. Anyone one else getting this.

    This is the first time I have had this problem.

    With this release. Is there also a fix for the stutter we have all been having in the past ? I dont see why no one seems to be asking this question since the posting of Rift 1.32. And yes I have posted a "bug report". All the suggestions to fix it have not worked. I have been having buyer remorse lately. HTC Seems the road I should have gone. Price be damned for the lack of stutter (maybe).

    There is no stutter we have all been having. Don't take a few complaints as the general situation.
    My current config : HP Omen laptop, 8 GB RAM, Intel i5-7300HQ @2.5GHz + Nvidia GTX 1050 (2GB VRAM).

    Currently plays on :

    - Beat Saber.
    - Windlands.
    - Skyrim VR.

    I use VR for :
    - Games.
    - Art Software (Tilt Brush, Oculus Medium, Mocu Mocu Dance).
    - Cinema VR (Oculus Desktop or Virtual Desktop).

    I have discovered an interesting bug......
    I use Voicemeeter Banana for sending audio to three different pieces of hardware.  1. My onboard sound card  2. An Asus Xonar pcie card  3.  Rift headset.
    Since the last updates, I could not get my HMD to work.  I tried reinstalls   blah blah blah,,,,nothing worked.
    I stumbled upon a work around that seems to let me get everything working.
    I boot the computer and, afterwards, go to the app tray and shut down Voicemeeter app.  I then launch Oculus home.  After home is running, I then relaunch  Voicemeeter app and all works at that point.  For some reason, the HMD will not boot up if Voicemeeter app is running......
    Just thought I would share and maybe the Oculus devs might look into this  come up with a solution on next update.

    I'm getting exactly the same thing. Bug report sent to Oculus..

    I gotta say that with the latest 1.32 I do get a bit of shimmering with the Oculus logo on startup, esp. if I have moved it around a bit.  It does seem to go stable though.
    Alienware 17r4 Laptop with i7-7700hq 2.8/3.6, 32 gb ram, gtx1060 w/6gb ram, 256gb ssd, 1tb hdd, Oculus Rift w/2x sensors.  Now using an Alienware Graphics Amplifier (AGA) with Zotac gtx1080ti Blower and Asus vg248qe 144hz external monitor.  All works great!

    Also have a 64gb Oculus Go which I love for travel and quick VR Fixes.  Looking forward to the Quest!

    Congrats Devs!!!!

    Zero stutter in Home (for me). You've nailed this release. I was concerned when I tried the 1.32 beta and saw stutter but that could have just been debug code. This release is flawless (for me).

    I took some performance metrics of OVR_Server, Dash and Home2 if anyone is interested. - https://imgur.com/a/ML94gkU

    Dash definitely releases GPU memory usage much faster than pre 1.32 when backgrounded. It still uses a fair bit of system memory ~800MB when backgrounded. However I had a lot of overhead so maybe it steps aside if another program requires it??? Do apps do that these days in Windows?

    Dash using ~5% CPU at all times will probably still offend some of the purists who want nothing to get in the way of their VR apps. Does anyone know what critical features Dash provides?

    Does OVRServer or Dash provide Guardian boundary detection?

    Does anyone have a list of "features" that OVR_Server and Dash provides?

    Edit: Some metrics while playing Superhot - https://imgur.com/a/WaLUnUC

    The new Dash rollover menu is a great addition but I find it really blurry comparing to the other part of Dash, like if it was scaled high too much, or too much anti-aliased and that's with my usual SS 1.5. In any way, great feature for sure.

    My dash has always been blurry. I thought that was normal. My fonts can't be read unless i bring them close to my face or enlarge the screen to max size.

    Does it offer the option to stay closed when I don't need it for any apps or titles that having anything to do with Oculus home?
    For example, iRacing, Assetto Corsa, rFactor2, Project Cars - yes I pretty much only race in VR.

    I kinda like the new Home Dash, good job.
    But can we please have an option to turn the damn thing off when not being used for any Oculus specific content like we used to? You know, the 'run as administrator' option to keep it closed when not using it.

    Not sure why Oculus did this? I have a suspicion it was because they didn't like the Oculus Tray Tool and it's very simple, low resource use way of launching VR titles without the Oculus Home in the background.
    I'm sure Apollyon will find a fix for this, until you patch it again...but the community will always find a way around it when you forcefully push things in their faces. 
    You want widespread adoption of VR as much as we users do, there's no need to force the Home to be open to experience the VR content, especially 3rd party apps that have nothing to do with the Home Dash and simply need to the OVR service to be running.

    Now, I haven't seen much of a resource 'hit' with it on unlike others reporting very high CPU usage, so good job on that.
    But for those of us who leave our HMD's sitting out next to our PC's and have the Home Dash open when it detects change in light intensity caused by say my pet cats walking past it, there really should be an option to turn it off as that's when it uses resources for no reason.

    @Globespy ;
    I completely agree with what you said.  It is lack of choice in settings that upsets me the most.  At least in my case this is producing the opposite reaction - I am leaving as soon as Pimax devices are out.  What Oculus does is completely unacceptable, I hope, there will be class action against them, because so far I am unaware of any paid software that has no option to turn promotions off.

    In case you weren't aware: https://i.reddit.com/r/oculus/comments/9odbvz/fixed_old_oculus_home_runtime_w_instructions

    This works for some, but not for others (works for me though).  Might be worth a try.

    Game promotions and sales displayed on Desktop in Oculus Client, and in your face in HMD via Dashboard.  There should be a switch to opt out of that just as there's one in any other civilized software I know of.  This is not a free software, I paid money for my device, so I should have a right to opt out of ads.

    Ideally, I would like no Oculus Client starting with my games, only dash with no ads, but I guess the single purpose of it is to drive game sales up, right? :smile:

    I cannot check anymore because after 1.32 closed the last simple door to prevent Oculus Client from starting, I moved back to 1.30FW and so did half of the virtual racers I know.  What Oculus does IMHO is counter productive, because no matter how hard they try, there will be a way around, it is just a matter of effort put in.  But, this aggressive approach harmed company image in my eyes really badly.

    I am talking about the biggest tile in the dashboard, that displays: Game A, Price N, Game B, Price M.  Also, the page that Oculus Client starts with, displaying similar information.  That page should be optional, just as it is everywhere else.  Imagine Microsoft Store opening in your face every time you log on to Windows, how would that be a nice experience?

    Ah I get ya. Never really thought anything of it. Steam is the biggest offender. It's quite subjective I think, I never really paid any attention to it.
