  1. The latest viewer and beta release both cause the old problem with some Radeon graphics cards and make lots of things go bright pink/puple and look like building blocks. Pleeeeese undo whatever it was you did before so those of us with relatively recent Radeon cards can use the viewers!!!!!!!
  2. Just to say a million thank yous to LL for listening to all of us with ATI Radeon graphics cards that just couldn't cope with the later version of the series 3 viewers at all. Everything now hunky dory in the beta viewer. Thanks guys!!
  3. Hi, I have the newest drivers. This is the SL About info I have. Second Life 3.2.6 (248086) Jan 19 2012 13:14:05 (Second Life Release) Release Notes CPU: Intel® Core2 Quad CPU Q8400 @ 2.66GHz (2659.99 MHz) Memory: 2014 MB OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 32-bit (Build 7600) Graphics Card Vendor: ATI Technologies Inc. Graphics Card: ATI Radeon HD 4600 Series Windows Graphics Driver Version: 8.93-111205a-132104C-ATI OpenGL Version: 3.3.11399 Compatibility Profile Context libcurl Version: libcurl/7.21.1 OpenSSL/0.9.8q zlib/1.2.5 c-ares/1.7.1 J2C Decoder Version: KDU v6.4.1 Audio Driver Version: FMOD version 3.750000 Qt Webkit Version: 4.7.1 (version number hard-coded) Voice Server Version: Not Connected Built with MSVC version 1600 SO everything seems to be of the right spec, but still the problem persists. Any thoughts? Thanks again.
  4. Thanks for the tip. I tried it but it makes no difference. Oddly, with the very latest version of the viewer and newly updated drivers for the graphics card (this morning) the situation is different and worse. Whilst the sky is back with detail, the sea is a flat, deep magenta colour, as are some other blue things. Also terrible lag and de-rezzing. I think the truth is that cards like ours (and they are no more than 18 months old) won't be able to display the newer SL viewers. I've now gone for a Singularity v1 viewer, as all the 3rd party version 3 viewers I've tried give us serious problems. I think the moral is, don't buy ATI cards if you want to use SL reliably. Difficult though, as many machines come with them as standard (the university only buys from HP and they only use ATI cards now). If there are any Lindens reading this, it's a show-stoppping problem for us.
  5. We have a number of computers here (Uni of West of England) that run SL with Radeon HD 4000 series graphics cards, and in the last week they've all lost the ability to render the detail in water and sky. No matter what we do re graphics settings it doesn't fix it. The new viewer today and the latest beta viewer both have the same problem. Windlight? Can it be fixed?
  6. Oh, this is a blow. As with most other universities, I think we'll have to look elsewhere. We have 3 sims and whilst around £7K a year isn't a ridiculous charge for what is effectively a sitewide software licence, it's the sudden jump that makes me nervous. I also worry that educators and non-profits will leave, and that will make the environment far less rich for education. I also worry that Linden are in trouble, hence the price hike. So is this rumour that Microsoft might buy them out just a rumour?
