  1. Everything Coffee said. All the things... Especially the "Please help."
  2. Plot twist... OR maybe many of those music players of SL don't share their knowledge or scripts because they literally downloaded them from a free script library which is in public domain already. Banking on that most users aren't aware or savvy enough to copy these scripts themselves, they instead make money by essentially selling what is already free. Pretty much preying on folks. There are far too many examples of scripts for sale on marketplace which are literally copy/pasted from free script library sources. Shame that... Not saying Pantera's script is a copy/paste, as she's a brilliant scripter and likely pulled that together in about 60 seconds from the top of her head. But... a script to play music is not a complicated script, and there are I'm sure, free sample scripts available. Just a thought. 🙂
  3. I should add, I appreciate you giving guidance and advice to our users on how to alter the Firestorm interface. Not so much the toxic way you presented the information though. Thanks.
  4. Not sarcasm at all. The viewer is open source and we always welcome contributions from the community. Especially given how much work we actually do with very few developers these days. In that Jira I created, I did point out issues and things I disliked. But pointing out things we dislike, offering suggestions on how they could be improved is a million times easier than actually making the changes, and more so maintaining those changes. We don't really need advice or critique, although I do welcome it. What we need is people to help do the actual work, and then maintain that work for the next 5-10 years through dozens if not hundreds of code merges with LL code. My point being, it's easy to pick apart what we don't like about something. It's a whole different world to try and fix it.
  5. We look forward to your contribution, and thank you for your constructive feedback! Jessica Lyon Project Manager Of the viewer with the disgusting and ancient-looking User Interface.
  6. Oz! It has been a great honor and privilege to have worked with you the past 11 years. I remember you coming in as a liaison for third party viewers during a time of great chaos in the TPV space. You created order, structure and in doing so, kept the Open Source nature of Second Life alive. You will be missed by many! Enjoy your retirement! You have earned it. Jess.
  7. LL's EEP bug fixes are just out of RC. We are instructed, as are all TPV's to NOT release anything from LL until it is mainstream release and out of RC. Therefor we couldn't release those EEP bug fixes without violating the Third Party Viewer Policy. That said.... we do in fact have those changes merged into a branch and we are in a QA cycle already. We are also 'hoping' to pick up LL's mesh uploader changes/improvements to be included in our upcoming EEP bug fix release. We have FAR more users than any other viewer in SL, including the LL viewer. This means that if we release something very buggy, it has a much more detrimental impact on the over all user experience in SL. We care tremendously about the user experience. Improving the user experience is our number one objective. We are responsible for what we release. I am responsible for what we release. We work very hard to make sure that everything we release is of the highest standard possible within our ability.
  8. /me digs out the keys to my panic room.... Filled with popcorn and booze. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't deeply concerned.
  9. Hi Magnus1285. I am the owner of the Firestorm Project and the Firestorm Community Gateway. I just want to reassure you that no one on our team has any means of checking or looking up your physical location in the world. Our gateway helpers utilize a translator hud that uses an LSL function called llGetAgentLanguage (as was mentioned above). All viewers do broadcast the default language you have chosen to use and llGetAgentLanguage simply queries and returns that information. So our helpers know only what language you have chosen from within the viewer you are using and they try to respond in that language via their translators. This is in fact how most translators in Second Life work, and we use one of the widely available cheapo translators found on SL Marketplace. Firestorm takes privacy very seriously and I can assure you we have no tracking mechanisms what so ever to locate your physical location in the real world or within our virtual world. I hope that puts you at ease, and if you have any other questions please feel free to drop me an email at jessica.lyon@phoenixviewer.com. Please stay safe. Jessica Lyon CEO/Project Manager The Phoenix Firestorm Project, Inc.
  10. Firestorm with VR support? WOULD LOVE TO! I mean it.. I really would! But one small problem. For us to do so, would require that each of our developers working on it, own a VR headset. And not just one, but one of each brand most likely. We'd also have to purchase headsets for a few of our testers and QA, and of course at least a handful for our key support people. If I had to hazard a guess... maybe ~20 headsets should do it. Unfortunately, we don't have that kind of money. Not to mention, we are very heavily taxed right now in development areas. Really short handed these days, as there are fewer and fewer developers around SL now. There was an attempt at FS VR support a while back, can't remember who it was that worked on it now, but it got abandoned. And I heard recently someone else is trying their hand at it. I genuinely wish them luck and hope something comes from it. But unfortunately, it can't be us.
  11. We have a few things no other third party viewer has... Starting with the lions share of the Second Life user base. A ridiculous amount of users... insane amount of people relying on us... Which brings me to the other thing we do that no other TPV does. We provide live support... to ALL of them, at no cost. Beyond all the other reasons I won't get into details on, just the two above justify our strict and sometimes lengthy QA process. We also must ensure our releases are of the best quality possible, because unlike smaller viewers who can release an update or hotfix on the fly without causing any ripples... (a few hundred or few thousand users). When we do that, well over 70% of SL users have to update their viewers and THAT is extremely disruptive and troublesome to everyone on the entire platform. We do not have the luxury of being snappy with releases. We have a very heavy burden of responsibility to get it right each time we release. Jessica Lyon
  12. Ok, I've found a solution for you both Prokovy and SosiaalinenKokeilu. Since the experience will only work over firestorm land and you both do not want to be forced into the experience I've found the perfect solution. I have added both your names to the ban list from all estates, therefor you will never have to worry about the experience abusing you. I hope that resolves this matter sufficientlly for you both, and if there is anyone else concerned about us abusing you on our land please let me know before you come to our land. Have a great day everyone! Jessica Lyon Project Manager The Phoenix Firestorm Project, Inc
  13. The Firestorm experience has zero to do with the Firestorm viewer. You were added to the experience because either you were in the firestorm gateway or possibly the Firestorm gateway exhibit at the Sci-Fi convention which we utilized the experience key to give visitors a tour hud for touring the role play area on the gateway. Could you explain please in what way you feel you were abused with the experience key? In what way have we abused the experience key against you?
  14. We only have and use the one experience key, and only for the two things described. We will however soon also use it to help new resi's wear a 'housecoat' when they're naked and are having problems getting dressed. So that will work by temp attaching a stylish housecoat and then we can offer them a teleport to one of our private change rooms where they will then be further aided by one of our gateway helpers or mentors.
