oculus rift home

Hi all

I've been using my Oculus Rift happily for some years now but at some point recently it seems that the "homes" that I had built and all the object that I had collected have just vanished.

I now have a the "grey field" when I log in to my headset, All the games etc., seem to work okay but I do miss the homes I had built.

Is it true that they have all gone for good ?

Thanks

David

Hey @deltaalpha52. Recently, we stopped supporting the older Oculus Home experience within the Rift software. This standalone app had some great customization features that we loved playing with, and hope to bring some of it into the future. We know this is disappointing news for everyone who loved using their Oculus Home, and we feel it too.

WHY!!!!  why wouldnt you just leave the app alone so we could at least enjoy all the content and trinkets we have built up over the years !!!

Not to mention visiting other peoples homes was by far the most enjoyable experience anyone who tried on my headset had !!!   **bleep** 

Hello,

I understand that experiences can go EOL. I was wondering if you could give me/us/the community a copy of our homes so we can experience them. Even if we have to run it on our own server. Please let me know. I expect the answer is no and I understand that as well. I would like to voice my opinion that I would love to have something like that back again. I spent a good amount of time setting up my home and even though I did not visit it often I enjoyed my time when I did. I appreciate your consideration and while not expecting a positive response I nonetheless hope for one. Hope you are having a good day.

Hey there! I know you were trying to get connected with support regarding this. However, there is not a way to get users copy of their homes 😞 Sadly. this feature is gone and trust me I am upset too however, some experiences come to a end 😞 

 

I hope this is provided for future devices as that would be awesome! I hope this email finds you well and understand your feeling regarding this. Hopefully you can still enjoy your device! Happy Thursday!

We are all mad here.

Please bring it back

Oculus home was way better than anything I've seen out there

I see now My Oculus Rift S has a glitch and I notice a lot of users out there were troubleshooting like crazy in desperation. I paid over $400 for this device and would brag about it, now the cool interface went away and its even having issues recognizing movement

are you replacing units or giving some kind of credit so we can get a new updated / supported device?

I bought a few games that I'm pretty sure are exclusive to oculus - I don't want to miss on those and buy others again on another headset...

 

Heya, I just wanted to chime in here and give my two cents. I know that the Home feature being removed is disappointing for a lot of our PCVR users, but I hope it doesn't completely turn you away from us!

Currently, there isn't any sort of program for credits or trade in to get a new device, and I honestly wouldn't expect to see one in the future. However, if that's something you'd be interested in, I'd recommend posting on the Ideas board. That's the best way to get any sort of ideas and suggestions seen by the right people!

Also, in regard to the games you've already bought with Oculus, you'll still have access to all of your PCVR games on any device you connect to PCVR with! So for example, if you decide to get the Quest 3 when it comes out, you can connect to your PC with Air Link or a Link cable to play all the same PCVR games. A good amount of our games are also what we call "cross-buy", meaning that if you own the PC version you will also own the standalone version if you use the same account on a standalone headset. You can check out a list of cross-buy games here.

 

I hope I provided some answers and clarification for you! Please don't hesitate to let me know if you need any further explanation or anything. I'll do my best to answer as much as I can!

Make sure you smash that Kudos button!

I had the same thought of playing Oculus Homes again but on a server, I don't know how I would do that. Would you know how to do it?

I was thinking the same thing but not sure how to make a server of it. Would you know how to do so?

Great so you took people's money promise them games and an user interface. Now after taking millions of dollars from people and new ideas to make more money you are just dumping the people that helped you get to were you are now. Cool not an unheard of business plan, but he world is full of companies that did this too many times and eventually went out of business or were sued until the end of time. Keeping the riff environment would cost meta nothing quite literally nothing.
