What is the Launcher Content Home Screen?

The Launcher Content Home Screen is the interface your customers use while in VR.

4 categories to customize your Launcher Content Home Screen.

NOTE: Out of the 4 categories you can toggle on/off, "Trending" and "New Releases" content is ordered by trending and newest. "Difficulties" and "Tags" content is ordered via the Operator Panel.

1) TRENDING TITLES
The trending titles at your location.

2) NEW RELEASES
The newest titles you’ve added to your location.

3) DIFFICULTIES
Easy, Medium, and Hard categories will be displayed on your home screen. If off, players will still be able to filter by difficulty.

4) TAGS
All the tags you have assigned to specific content will be displayed with content segmented by tag on your home screen. If toggled off, players will still be able to filter by tag.

You can adjust which categories show on the launcher from your "Experiences" page. See below for more info.

 

What is included by default and how will it look?

Default includes all 4 categories toggled ON. Denoted in the image below, this includes:

1) TRENDING 

2) NEW RELEASES

3) DIFFICULTY

4) TAGS
The player will hit the down arrow to see Medium, Hard, and then the start of "Tags."

Examples of toggling on/off various categories and how it changes the layout.

You can toggle off categories one by one. For example, you can show Trending and Difficulty only, or Tags only, etc. See the images below for specific examples of how toggling certain categories on/off affects the Launcher layout:

 

OUR RECOMMENDATIONS

Trending and Difficulty ON = The simplest, most used layout. We recommend to play around with the layout toggles as you can mix and match and determine what fits best for your operation.Location_Operator_Launcher_Content_Home_Screen_Difficulty_On.png

Toggle ALL OFF = Big list of content ordered via Operator Panel with no category titles. Recommended if you have a smaller selection of content. For example if your Operation only has 8-10 titles.Location_Operator_Launcher_Content_Home_Screen_All_Off.png

Only Difficulty ON = Clearly show EASY, MEDIUM, and HARD within single view with content ordered via Operator Panel. Recommended if you want to direct players to certain difficulty categories. For example, if you were to instruct them to "only select content from the top row." Location_Operator_Launcher_Content_Home_Screen_Difficulty_Only.png

Only Tags ON = Clearly control segment titles with tags and content ordered via Operator Panel. Recommended if you want full control of segmentation and ordering.Location_Operator_Launcher_Content_Home_Screen_Tags_Only.png

 

Category Toggles

The category toggles are located in "Experiences" within the Operator Panel. This allows you to customize your categories on a location as well as Experience level.
