I use Viewer 2 beta 3.0.1 and Kirstens S21(9) and have no teture rezzing issues apart from the odd alpha texture glitch which can affect one pair of shoes from a designer and not six other pairs from the same designer.

But textures do normally rez fast. I visited some large stores yesterday including Pixel fashions, a large store with probably thousands of textures and everything rezzed beautifully and quickly.

You could try what Torley Linden suggests in this thread, turn off HTTP textures.

When I used Emerald before it hit the trash can, I hated its slow texture rezzing. It really was poor and because of that and other reasons, I never installed Phoenix so I've never done a comparison between Phoenix and Viewer 2. When I switched from 1.23.5 and Emerald to Viewer 2, my old computer groaned a bit but my new computer loved Viewer 2 and it rezzes very well. What are your computer specifications and is your graphics card driver reasonably up to date? Could be a graphics card update would sort texture rezzing out for you on Viewer 2 based clients.

I know this post is way old, and I hope you have solved the issue by nowDisable HTTP Textures and keep HTTP Inventory checked. You can do this in the Developement menu if your viewer doesn't have the option in advanced graphic preferences. HTTP Textures is **bleep**...I mean **bleep**! Disable it and you will never have a half blurry avi again.

If you're having a flaky router causing issues with dropping packets, relying more heavily on UDP (which doesn't care whether data gets received or not) rather than HTTP which uses TCP (which does care and will retry on dropped packets), disabling HTTP textures will make the problem much worse.
