  1. I spend most of my time over on the MESH forum but wanted to start a thread here about textures. Historically I have used (what I THOUGHT) were fairly large textures on items. Like a 1024 for a wardrobe closet say. Well it turns out that I wasn't even NEAR the record breaking line of overly abundant textures. While it was possible to check on texture size previously, the new version of Firestorm's Inspect Objects tab let you do that easily. We talk a LOT (a whole lot) about low poly game asset mesh on the MESH forum, but let's not forget about the texture part of the equation. Below are two example's of texture use. This first one (not even a HINT of the object in the background purposefully) is a VERY small bench -- about a meter in size: OMG! and this is my 40 x 23 building for Fantasy Faire: Now the Fantasy Faire building is not my norm either but was purposefully made to help keep the lag down and that it does very well. This disconcerting revelation came about as I was teleporting back and forth filling up my mock shop to see if the smallest building would be big enough for me (yep, plenty). Every time I TPed back in the bench (gorgeous bench by the way) was gray for a LONG time. My computer doesn't normally see gray ^^. Eventually I really wanted to know what was going on and so I did a quick inspection (thanks you dev that added this) and had an Oh My moment. I deleted the bench. So when people are complaining that their home or sim is laggy, it is very likely a COMBINATION of dense mesh and too many large textures. So let's all think about that now and then :D.
  2. Over the last two days (2/26 and 2/27), I have been having repeated problems logging into SL using Firestorm (it basically hangs). Today, I tried messing with the Mode setting on the login screen and found that changing it from Firestorm to Phoenix seems to work Give it a shot! (two other people in the other thread "Did SL just go down again?" said it worked for them, too) X
  3. Bonjour, j'ai un problème de connexion sur Firestorm, concernant le "Grid". Cela fait un petit moment que j'ai ça depuis quelques jours, je ne sais pas trop pourquoi et je voudrai savoir comment ne plus l'avoir. Si il y a eu des personnes qui ont eu affaire à ce problème de Grid, je pendrai volontiers vos conseils/aides. Merci d'avance.
  4. I just upgraded Firestorm from an earlier v5 to the current latest - Firestorm 5.0.11 (53634) . I initially had an issue with the new version freezing and logging me out after about 10 minutes or so, but that seems to have been cured by reducing bandwidth from the previous setting of 1250Kbps down to 800Kbps (Preferences - Network & Files). The other thing, which is what this post is really about and I hope someone can help me, is that I stop walking to my double-clicked point whenever I click the ESC key as I'm walking. The previous version did not do that, it just alligned my view to the direction I started walking but I kept on walking. Preferences - Move & View .. there is an option near the bottom for Double-click on land. I always have mine set to Move to clicked point. But the way it used to work has changed and I don't like. Anyone know how to make it work like it did before re: pressing ESC while walking?
  5. I have one of those looooong bakes happening and since I already got some tea I thought I would share this --- mostly for new folks that might get pretty confused. I don't know if this happens with ALL doorways, with just cube (analyzed) physics or what but it can be fairly disconcerting when you think your physics model isn't working. Here's the deal. After I uploaded a mesh entry wall (with doorway) I wen't into the build window and looked at the physics with the new "see the physics model" option in the Features menu (the little eye up by Physics Shape Type). Well I at least THOUGHT a word that you can NOW say on TV. Why wasn't my physics model working. Well the answer is, it WAS WORKING -- it just didn't look like it in the "see the physics" pane. Here are the screenshots. I also uploaded the same mesh with high physics (just choosing that option in the uploader). It showed the same solid door but a slightly different shape. The doorway WORKS just as it should. So don't panic if this happens to you. And my bake is done. Pasting in screenshots. EDIT: The 10 land impact doorway is the one with the HIGH physics from the uploader which shows you why you want to make your own physics models LOL.
  6. Suddenly I cannot open the market place browser from within the Firestorm viewer. Peculiarly my alt - using the same viewer - can !! What adjustment must I do ???
  7. I have been away from SL for about 5/6 years. I finally attempted to sign into my account about a week ago and it said my account was on hold. So I submitted a support case to get it reactivated and I am now able to sign into it. However, I have the Firestorm viewer (and yes I have updated to the most current version of it) and when I log into my account my avatar will not rez. I don't know if it's because the account is so old the textures used just aren't existing anymore? What is the problem? Every time I attempt to sign in, it's just an orange cloud. I waited for almost an hour thinking it just needed time to load but no avail. Is there something that needs to be done on Linden Lab side? I have submitted a ticket to ask about that also but since it's President's Day, no response yet. Does anyone have any helpful answers as to what I can try in order for the avatar to show up in world? When I checked with a friend, they can see me perfectly from their side but I can't see myself.
  8. That's fine, but why does the SL Plugin in Firestorm needs to connect to firestormviewer.org web server? Thanks.
  9. Hi, I am trying to get a good depth of field effect in Firestorm. When I get the background nice and blurry, my avatar is also blurry. When I try to fix it and make the avatar in focus again, the background gets sharp also. Have been playing with the settings for hours and reading online articles but nothing is getting me closer to how I want to view the world. Can anyone help me? Jaz
  10. how to move camera controls from the top of the screen to the bottom in firestorm?
  11. https://gyazo.com/b27927cec233d67707cd0abdbbd3e476 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Can someone explain how I get rid of that? I have it EVERYWHERE I go. I went to 50 different sims and it's still there. I detached EVERYTHING on my avatar and STILL there. I'm thinking it's the viewer?? But has anyone seen this? Is there any solutions? I want this off my screen lol

  13. Hallo, since yesterday my friends-online list stopped working. Any solutions to that ? (reinstall wont help). Thanks. Funny thing : same in my textviewer by Radegast It only shows the new arrivals in Friends Online Have more the same problem ?
  14. Using Firestorm my viewer will randomly go into a swirl of rainbow colors, avatars will not load proper some are boxes some are rainbow color or bright white in areas. Rooms and fruntiture do not load proper they too are this same random mix of colors. I do not have this issue when I log in on the Second Life Viewer ONLY on Firestorm. I have tried to clear all cache set all to default settings and unistalling completely and then starting a fresh clean install. Still the same issue happens when I open the Clean Install Firestorm. Please Help. I will attache a screen shot of what i see.. Thank you
  15. I doesn't have nearby chat people list in Firestorm. I tried everything and I don't know how to enable? Can anybody help? Here is screenshot.
  16. Hiya Will friends lists ever be debugged and fixed? when you delete someone or someone deletes you calling cards are left behind and never removed unless you delete manually by hand this bugs been here since second life's inception? Firestorm 3rd party viewer right click any friend click remove friend then go to https://my.secondlife.com/ login and in many cases they will still be listed as a friend here and following no matter how long you wait to check later on https://my.secondlife.com/ claims I have 296 friends https://ibb.co/gAPOnw while the 3rd party viewer Firestorm claims that I have 298 friends https://ibb.co/nhN17w purging C:\Users\name\AppData\Roaming\Firestorm_x64 C:\Users\name\AppData\Local\FirestormOS_x64 has no effect always remains the same another bug is that some users only have one calling card while others may have three or four or more calling cards duplicates was default suppose to be two? one in friends one in all?
  17. I like going to Vista Animations. They have square pads you can stand on to sample their animations. But in Firestorm's default settings(can't find them) it makes the smallest movement of the avatar too big for accuracy. I can't place my avi in the center of the pads because the smallest movement is so large that it displaces it off the pad. Is there a Firestorm parameter that controls the accuracy of avi movements? Thanks, ChoiceRider
  18. Somehow in the past, I did manage to turn on the command [movelock]. I remember doing so, but can't seem to be able to find it again to turn it off. Searching the web resulted in this single direction: CTRL+ALT+P(doesn't work in my FS viewer) > Avatar(no such link) > Movement > Movelock I think I've looked everywhere for Movelock but haven't found it. Preferences > Move & View > Movement tab > (contains no Movelock). This is the second post I've created tonight involving my visits to Vista Animations. They have these square pads to stand on that serve to sample there AOs and other animations, but my avatar no longer responds to the animations supplied by these pads. I'm thinking that this is due to having Moveblock turned on keeping my avi from responding. My viewer is Firestorm-Releasex64 Any help in finding this Moveblock command or any other ideas for why my avi just stands unmoved by these animation pads would be much appreciated. Thanks, ChoiceRider P.S. I tried using not only Firestorm but also SL-viewer, and Alchemy with no change. Also, I detached everything including the AO.
  19. After installing the latest video drivers everything was working well until I tried to install Blender. This installed an booted up ok. Then when I quit and tried to start Firestorm and got the famously useless message: Secondlife is unable to run because your video card drivers did not start up properly, out of date, or are unsupported hardware Please make sure you have the latest video card drivers. This was not a problem until .i tried to install this wretched software. I have Geforce video drivers 3.8133 my card and system was working fine before I installed Blender. How do I fix this please?
  20. When people talk on local chat, I always get those messages scrolling, as a "toast" on my screen when I am in another chat tab. I was able to disable them as a toast but they now show up as a chat bubble type thing. I want to hide all local chat from showing up when I am not viewing it. You know, so it is not in my way of clicking or reading something else. I want local chat to stop showing up on my screen unless I am actually in the local tab like normal. I just can not find in the viewer ho to do ti. Thoughts? Thank you.
  21. Okay so I am running the latest Firestorm with a generic RLV hud and when attempting to utilize any RLV objects/scripts it types the code being used, ( @TP1726351 or @clear etc.) into general chat and does nothing. Is their an option I need to activate in Firestorm or something I am missing to get it working?
  22. Когда нужно чистить кэш фаершторм (Firestorm)? плохое отображение текстур плохо отображается инвентарь (пропали вещи) проблемы со входом в Second Life
  23. Happily this isn't MY account, but my alt has some very very odd issues. The first I noted was that the Favorites Bar was missing. That turned out to be because there were NO LANDMARKS in the landmark folder. Many many empty folders. Clearing cache didn't fix things. HOWEVER nothing is actually missing (well at least not obviously) as logging in on the Linden viewer has landmarks in the Landmarks folder and many more folders with items than show up in Firestorm. The thing that is very odd to me is that My account and another alt account are just fine and this account was as it should be yesterday afternoon. I read that things were bad yesterday but this seems extremely odd. Any advice would be helpful. It isn't a huge thing as it is a testing alt for permissions and such and doesn't have a giant special inventory, but would be nice to get it fixed. Thinking worse case I could wait until the next update of FS comes out and that will likely fix it. Thank Whirly or whoever is smart this morning.
