What is "Dullahan"?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

two words, one file.   slplugin.exe

I swopped out firestorms for cool viewers and i can watch tv again. I do NOT advise others to do the same. Altho the TV works again I too still get dulahan error pop ups.  The last time this happened it took a viewer upgrade to fix. Personally I blame html5 and its innocuous but lethal https system. But hey. Brave experimenters may care to harvest various versions of slplugin and swop 'em out and see what happens but, like I say, dont do it kids. Stay safe. Stay careful. The only way is up.

html5 is the hero that saved us

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTML5

from this crapware

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adobe_Flash_Player

you said https

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTPS

https is a good thing not a bad thing linden labs websites in a normal browser have a https url and viewers are still only http

viewer url info hub

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Barbarossa/182/60/25

http if you put in your web browser it changes automatically to https at least in mine anyways

you replaced the executable in the main folder and kept the old file system?

don't forget the llplugin folder

this folder may or may not be needed $PLUGINSDIR

i would copy both folders but that is just me

currently at this time very moment in time 7/29/2020 there is three options to update and fix browser issues in viewers download and install official viewer from linden labs or update the viewer yourself like i did or download the firestorm beta

https://secondlife.com/support/downloads/

https://www.firestormviewer.org/firestorm-6-4-5-eep-public-beta/

for the average user your probably better off just using the auto installers unless you really wanna tinker badly i kinda doubt one file was appropriate kinda baffled why firestorm is not updated and maintained the linden labs websites should have warning labels on viewers that fall behind in updates or maybe blacklist if they have to who monitors 3rd party viewer projects oversight i am sure linden labs could reach out and ask google for guidance on whether or not it is okay to still be running chromium 72 in firestorm in 7/29/2020

I had hoped for someone to chime in on how i did since the viewer cannot auto detect anything but this was all the guidance and support i got

i didn't write the viewers myself i merely chopped them up and squished them together

One thing I'll never understand. Not happy with Firestorm -- use another viewer. It really is just that simple. Blacklist because you don't like our Project's release schedule? That's rather harsh and shows just how little you know about third party development, and any project in particular. 

@Oz Lindenis the Open Sourcerer of all things third party. You can explain to him how to obtain guidance from Google. Lindens always appreciate feedback. 

P.S. There's this fabulous invention called "punctuation". I recommend looking into it.

of course that helps quite a lot if you try to call other grammar nazis it has nothing to do with grammar nazis but maybe if you want others to understand what you are trying to say it might really help otherweise I'm not sure why you are complaining about no support you tried to create some abortion of a viewer and seriously expected support for it asking to warn about or even ban viewers because they don't live up to your personal standard just lol but since you are so smart an know best why not fork any viewer project and make your own improved super up to date viewer you can hand out but don't forget to apply for the TPV directory and gather a significant share of users so you might get access to the Havok library we don't want your viewer to be some lame thing without every cool feature out there wait you said you don't care about Havok and mesh upload but what about all your users anyway if you want to continue ripping viewers apart and create frankenviewers consisting of parts of at least three different viewers do so but please stop propagating this as the thing to go every user should do unless you offer full support for that because we won't do it once they broke everything based on your instructions so now I wonder if there is anything else I can say probably not ps I hope you don't find this too difficult to read since I thought I save some time and spare all that actually useless punctuation

Another user very crashy dullahan_host.exe here, did a  full "clean install" including deleting associated appdata folders.

Video stream is a youtube playlist, works in Official SL Viewer, but gives me just a gray screen with audio in Firestorm (both 32 and 64.bit).
Fixed - Problem related to "Max Texture Quality Level' not set to '0'

System info: https://pastebin.com/6cZGUxu7

And I see that this "forum" hole now has ignore. Very useful for people who haz a sad/angreh when asked to use punctuation.
