Nika Talaj Posted January 16, 2020 Share Posted January 16, 2020 My partner and I both have seen odd behavior when using the VIctorian's "My Colors" feature. I was trying to gather data for a succinct Jira on it, but I'm finding it difficult to characterize. Seen this on 2 parcels so far, using a Shelley and a Hardy, one of which we abandoned (for other reasons). The predefined colors always seem to work just fine, it's just the custom color UI that seems to have a problem. OR, possibly we don't understand its operation. Succinctly: It seems easy to get My Colors into a state where it lists 2 or more colors as "Color 0". Once in this state, the panel behaves as if its record of what colors you've defined is corrupt. This behavior does not appear to be related to whether the avatar defining the colors is the actual parcel owner, or another who is authorized to use the panel, but it may be. Let me relate an anecdote to clarify this. Two days ago, on our Hardy, my partner played around with My Colors (avatar not the owner of the parcel), then told me to set up ones that I like. So yesterday, Nika (also not the owner of the parcel) started doing so, using a studio windlight (Nam's Optimal Skin and Prim, no day cycle). She was a little disconcerted to see that he left a wall colored, but there were no colors defined when she brought up My Colors. Oh well. She chose a green using the color picker and submitted it. It showed up as Color 0, and the message saying that house details have been updated appeared. Very good. She chose a different wall, made a nice blue and submitted it. It also showed up as Color 0, and house details updated. Hmmm two Color 0's. She chose a third wall, and both Color 0 buttons applied the green, the blue had evidently been forgotten. She tried each button more than once, couldn't believe it. Hmm. She deleted one Color 0, house details updated. She applied the remaining Color 0 to a wall, and it was .... BLUE! Actually, looking closely, it's not clear that this blue is exactly the same as the one she defined earlier. She tried to apply it to a wall next to the first blue wall, and the panel did not respond to her. At this point, typist logged her out and took a break. When she logged in again, the panel still wouldn't respond to her. Logged in the owner of the parcel, panel responded to her as usual. Read the Victorian notecard very carefully, which says to re-rez the house when the panel stops responding. Reluctant to do that for fear of losing colors. Logged in my most active avatar, who approached the panel with confidence and deleted the remaining Color 0. She quickly defined 3 colors: the green, using RGB coordinates I recorded earlier, not the color picker. Then the blue, again from RGB coordinates. They showed up as Color 0 and Color 1, very good. She then defined a beige using the color picker, which showed up as Color 2. Very good. Typist had to go do something, shut down the computer. Couple hours later entered SL using a different computer and my most active avatar again. The color panel now showed two Color 0's and one Color 1. She gave up. Today she brought up the panel again, still two Color 0's and one Color 1. AAAHHHHHHH!!!!! Today I intend to rez another house, and then re-rez the Hardy. Thank God we aren't using any add-ons, though we have built a couple of interior walls ourselves. Sigh. Is anyone else seeing this sort of behavior? @Dyna Mole (or anyone else who knows), am I Doing It Wrong? I'll wait a few hours before re-rezzing, in case there's any debug info that needs to be gathered. Incidentally, a feature request: it would be really nice to have a "Read Colors" button in the My Colors interface, that just reads and lists the colors directly off the walls in the house, so that if you didn't keep a careful record and you don't want to recolor any walls, you can always find out what colors you've chosen at some point in the past, even if you've deleted the color from the UI. 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
