Firestorm Quickprefs

Question

So.... I have successfully been adding a few useful things to my quick preferences in Firestorm, but one much desired control eludes me.
I want to be able to toggle Avatar Complexity Info on my quickprefs panel but can not find the debug setting for that. Can anyone shed some light on this?

Firestorm 6.3.9 (58205) so the most current one at the moment that I write this.

You can customize Quick Prefs!?  I didn't know that!

The Avatar Complexity settings can be found in Preferences > General tab:

I think in the Debug settings, the one you want is FSTagShowARW.

OH...

MY...

GOOGLE!

I have been looking for that debug setting, using different keywords (including "complexity", which is in the setting's description) literally for WEEKS.

It works, thank you so much!!!!

@Lindal Kidd : Update, I cried victory too soon and I blame a quick test on myself without other people near to test on.
"Show ACL" (which is bound to FSTagShowARW) does not show other people's render cost, suggesting that it may be deprecated(?). "Show Own ACL" is bound to FSTagShowOwnARW and only when both of these are enabled will it show my ACL in my tag. However, other people's ACL will still be absent.image.png.a35f33d932ccf156b43102572dea25e3.png

 

@Whirly Fizzle Can you perhaps help? I want to add a toggle for Show Avatar Complexity Information to my quick prefs. Do you know which debug setting I need for this?

If you want something like this.

Screenshot_2020-06-28_13-44-27.png.ddd980e3128a77e5ccc02e77d3074259.png

Follow my instructions step by step.

Locate your Client install directory.

Open file "/skins/default/xui/en/floater_quickprefs.xml"

Locate the following original code:

        <check_box
            control_name="UseEnvironmentFromRegion"
            follows="left|top"
            height="20"
            label="Use Region Windlight"
            layout="topleft"
            left="2"
            name="UseRegionWindlight"
            top_pad="0"
            width="200" />

Modify to this:

        <check_box
            control_name="UseEnvironmentFromRegion"
            follows="left|top"
            height="20"
            label="Region Windlight"
            layout="topleft"
            left="2"
            name="UseRegionWindlight"
            top_pad="0"
            width="200" >
        <check_box
            control_name="avatardrawinfo"
            follows="left|top"
            height="20"
 	    label="Complexity Info"
            layout="topleft"
            left="150"
            name="avatardrawinfo"
            top_pad="0"
            width="200" >
			<check_box.on_check
			 function="Advanced.CheckInfoDisplay"
			 parameter="avatardrawinfo"/>
			<check_box.check_button.commit_callback
			 function="Advanced.ToggleInfoDisplay"
			 parameter="avatardrawinfo"/>
		</check_box>
	</check_box>

Save and close your text editor.

Now log in and enable it.

It will show what you are asking for.

------------

(Do not change anything else except from the code exactly as shown above, i am not going to offer tech support.)

The FSTagShowARW and FSTagShowOwnARW debug settings works perfectly fine, as shown here. Try again, in a region with more people, double check if settings are properly attached to the options in checkboxes. And yes, if you'd like to see your own complexity, both of them needs to be enabled - because one of them says "show my own complexity" while the other is "show avatars complexity in general, all of them" - there is no separate "show complexity of avatars other than mine" setting. If you still don't see complexity in tags make sure, that FSTagShowTooComplexOnlyARW is set to FALSE, otherwise complexity will be shown in tags only for too complex avatars.

The "show avatar complexity" in "avatar health" menu is not tied to any debug setting, as its not a setting per se, but more a viewer function - same as "render metadata" section in Developer menu is, for example - therefore cannot be put in quickprefs via their editor. Try to not modify viewer UI files if possible - remember, than in case of issues support group may not be able to help you.

FSTagShowARW is only useful if you use nametags, so it's useless. 😎

Nicks UI enhancement works fine but of course can stop working one day if the next update makes changes here.

I DO use name tags, so how is it useless?

Okay, FINALLY figured it out....

I went back to my general preferences in the preferences screen, and saw that I had "only if too complex" on. I turned it off and POOF! my toggle works and I see other people's complexity/ACL/ACI/ARW or whichever acronym one wishes to slap on it.

 Thanks to all who tried to help.
