Share is shut down, it doesn't support 1.3.

Share was where it was at pre CV1. 
And I actually think there is a huge need for it now still. 
The random developer ideas were fun to explore, but I can understand them not being suitable for the Public frontend for Rift (ie oculus home) as they were often rough and buggy

The closest is probably  http://www.wearvr.com and another user here started http://www.vrench.com/

That is such a dick move from Oculus... I have DK2 and I just want to mess around with old 0.6 oculus. I can't go to 1.3 cause apparently they don't support laptops. Altough I was able to play on old share just fine.

So this is pretty much just a middle finger from Oculus. Thank Oculus, great moves!


I only have the DK2 and use a laptop (ASUS Gaming Laptop) with Oculus store and have yet to find an app that doesn't work. In fact, I have been playing "The Climb" and having a blast. Please get your facts straight before you post blatant BS. 


You should get the facts straight yourself. Oculus (the company) does not support laptops, period. That is the official stance of the company, because 99% of all laptops will not function using any version of their runtime newer than 0.6. If your laptop works, congrats! You are the 1%! 

The problem isn't performance-related, it's that most laptops cannot even detect the headset when using the new Direct Mode that Oculus uses now. For the most part, only laptops using true nVidia 980 GPUs will work, not ones using mobile chipsets like 980m.

As somewhat of a newcomer, may I ask what share was?

Thank you so much.

But yeah I still think oculus should keep their old share site. I understand why they wouldn't want new users to not end up there, but it was pretty hidden on their site on the first place. Old share with a little warning would be great.

One thing @cybereality mentioned was that Oculus staff actively maintained share during the DKx phases whilst CV1 was not released.
Now staff are busy maintaining/supporting the consumer facing hardware/software and not able to maintain share.

I'm really sorry, but we need to focus on the Oculus Store, which provides support for the consumer Rift. It doesn't make sense to spend effort on end-users using development kits and old runtimes, as these old software packages are no longer supported. In any case, the Oculus Store has sections for both paid and free content, and developers are encouraged to update their games or demos and submit to the Oculus Store. Thanks.

We are still waiting for our CV1s....Not everyone can hop on the 1.3 bandwagon...Should of sent notice the share will be closed in say 6 months - update and move to the store. Everyone will have their CV1s by then...
