Hello All,

So there's a few issues I've been experiencing since I got my new windows 8 computer last night.

Firstly Alpha Layers Tend to glitch out quite a bit, I'm able to see bits of my body/hands/feet For All mesh clothing that I never had any issues with.


Choppy Voice Chat- This ones a main concern of mine because I use voice chat a lot!

And I was wondering if anyone else was having these issues and know if there is anything I can do to fix these problems or just have to bare with it? 

 

Any Help Would be greatly Appreciated!!

Thanks In Advance

The easiest solution would be to "upgrade" to Windows 7 though - will also resolve the problem with the fugly tiles and missing start menu!
;)

That's actually part of the design, oh I get it, lol :P

Speaking of hateful interfaces, what is up with the new chat window in the latest LL viewer? Is that like a thowback to the old style viewers?

Can't say exactly. Top priority at the moment has getting the server-side baking stable (that's already in and seems to be basically working). However I already did - or better: tried - to merge the ~1200 commits into Firestorm - and it turned out to become a huge mess! So my personal idea right now is to move the communication parts in Firestorm into their own files and classes and out of the way to whatever LL has done to those parts. I already spent about 20 hours of moving things around to see if that actually works out and so far it looks pretty good (running a build with those changes for 6 hours now without problems). If this is the way CHUI will be handled isn't decided yet because of SSB. But if this works, it might eventually even possible to make it an option in the future whether to use the original CHUI comm style or the FS/legacy style. But no guarantee, so don't nail me on that!

I do not care for it, I hope it will be possible to go back to the way I am used to it being, if not I'll learn to deal, thanks for the explanation.

@ Ansarial, ok! Don't forget to get some rest you! :matte-motes-smitten:

Ah, ok, I just now saw this. I think I will be able to deal a lot easier now.
