Question

Ever since I updated my V2 viewer, my graphics have gone faulty! Textures for EVERYONE's hair don't show properly, neighter no signs, wings, and other aspects of second Life. I don't understand why or how to resolve the problem. It really interfers with gameplay and ruins the magic for me. Can anyone help?

A number of people who had issues with 2.7.4 and 2.7.5 have found the development viewer 2.8 beta to work very well. It's certainly the best official viewer 2 version I've ever used. It's available from the main download page http://secondlife.com/support/downloads/

Uninstall your existing viewer completely including manually deleting the Second Life folders in AppData > Roaming and AppData > Local. If AppData is hidden, you need to enable viewing. Follow the instructions for your OS here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial62.html

If you wish to save existing chat files you've had with other avatars, move the Roaming > [avatar name] folder elsewhere on your computer and drag any chat text files you wish to retain into the new Roaming > [avatar name] folder once Second Life is reinstalled and you've logged in at least once. Ignore if you don't want to save any.

Now download the beta viewer 2.8 from the main download page and install it.
