Just tried the BigCube and it seems to work pretty well. Certainly gets rid of any home clutter! I have just using the stock bare home without any decorations btw. Ended up lowering my total %cpu usage a few % (28 to 25%). GPU seemed about the same, ~20% total. Startup lag and lag between apps (like going from store back to home) seems a little faster, but not by much. No problem accessing the store.
You need to play with your starting position in order to get a nice blank screen. You can also play with colour and brightness settings to get something pleasing. I'll stick with this for now. Many thanks kojack. Cheers..
Interesting I just played Doom launched from Oculus and upon closing, Home did not load but just Dash. I use the experimental Longpress if that was the reason. Dash is all that's needed and nothing hehe!
Not sure what that all means?
I tried the long oculus press setting but this did not make any difference. The home environment still gets loaded after finishing any games or leaving the Oculus Store. You can still access the Dash menu while the home environment is loading though. Loading time probably depends on how good your PC's is (cpu/gpu/ram/ssd). Mine usually loads pretty quickly (3-5 seconds).
It means I quit the game and I end up in the light-grey grid with just DASH. Home was not loaded ready to drop into it even in the darkened Home. I don't have any speed issues with loading Home after Oculus Games anyways but I just don't want this White Cube either on this thread. I'd frankly live with just DASH loading into the light-grey grid any day.
I think a couple of the wall's sides already look pretty black to me. I position myself in front/middle of one of the white sides, Then I adjusted the brightness/colour mixing in the Oculus Home preferences (left controller/menu) to make it a colour I liked (cyan). I don't know but you could probably also edit the cube with something like 3D paint as well but I have not tried doing this since I did not find it necessary. I think you just need to play around with this until you find something that suits you.
Can you make a black cube? 🙂
Great how this thread turned out!
