a side effect...

Recommended Posts

I use V2 since october daily. Actually I spent much more time on Aditi than on Agni since then, but the viewer 2 is stll annoying me. :matte-motes-dont-cry: And I still use V1.23 when logging in on Agni. The first 1.23 TPV which is capable of showing mesh will be my choice. I hope there will be one someday.

I guess (Phoenix) Firestorm is as close as V2 Viewers will get to the old interface.

Still has all the old menus and build functions in it. Some things are ...hard-coded... and cannot be undone.

             Hi all,

     @ Mikki, I'm glad you're finding your way in V2. Certain aspects make it a none option for me in the largest portion of my SL. There are some great features, some that I love but some make my life in SL almost worthless.

     @ Arton, Unfortunately, a V1 viewer that can render mesh is impossible from my understanding. There is in the works a V2 based viewer that can be customized so to be almost indestinguishable from V1. The Phoenix developers have got their Firestorm viewer in public beta at this time. With a little tweaking and time it looks and acts very much like a V1 viewer.

Haven't tried the latest Firestorm Viewer, so I dunno how much it changed since it's first release. But yes, Firestorm will be my choice then.

On the maingrid, the Search beta V2 has been a revolution. Lag has been cut but 90%. There's an odd problem with some textures coming into focus (passing your cursor over them fixes that). But overall my SL experience has been better with this new viewer than it has been in over a year. There's so little lag that I was able to finish #10 in lap count at the Relay for Life last weekend, and that's on a crappy Time Warner cable connection, over an AirPort, on a MacBook Pro, nine miles from the end of the last road in America. It just works.

I ve got many problems and iissues of performance with SL2 or viewers based on it like Firestorm .

Firstly , occasionnaly , even after 30 minutes loaded a sim , i see many textures in grey .

Secondly , and many more frequent , the UI/GUI , every elements displayed who are not the 3D items of the world ,  are slowing my FPS  hugely .

A simple move of the cursor of the mouse decrease very quickly my performances  ,  some floating messages when some IMS come or group chat talk slow down my computer  . Even sometimes ,  chat in local  when my history chat is long  and i have stayed some hours in the same session of second life

With  10 avatars around me , i am often frozed if i do some actions like moving cams , looking my inventory , browsing in the internal browser, select with right button an item  etc ..

It s the kind of thing i don t meet with 1.23 clients or 1.23 based clients
