Steph Catseye Posted June 15, 2011 Share Posted June 15, 2011 There was a point in my Second Life when I loved this viewer, learning the new menus wasn't that hard and graphics seem to be slightly better, having said that the recent release is just *bleeping" me off to an extend where I realize they are going nowhere!I quote from the SL release:And, it’s easy to enable. In the SL Viewer’s Advanced mode, choose Me > Preferences, go to the Graphics tab, click the Advanced button, and just check Lighting and Shadows. (If your graphics card can’t support this option, then it won’t be available.) Then, you will experience the magic of Second Life like never before. For more information, see Lighting and Shadows.Of course it is only easy when you got one of the 4 graphic cards they support! If you have an AMD Card like I do it won't even give me the option to turn it on even when it would diplay it in Ultra Mode and 60 FPS! So back to my laptop with Nvidia Graphics and there is the same as always, it won't display the shaddows correctly! That is 2 times top notch hardware where it doesn't work while it works in Imprudence but kills the Alpha Layer and no snapshots possible and it works like a charm in Singularity, a piece of software created by one person!!! SO why can 100 knuckleheads not achieve what 1 person can?What really bothers me in this viewer is that ANY alternative viewer now has the copy and paste functions in the building window! If you ever had to make 50 prims with random sizes to the same size you know how frigging great that tool is!Why do I need to Shazam music on my iphone when other viewers can display the title?Why do I still receive frigging pointless group messages even when I turned it off?Why is there no auto response?Why no temporary uploads, or even HD based previews?This above and other things i can't recall at the moment is why the SL Viewer has to die!In my opinion there has been no accomplishment since January! Announcing a new search is not an accomplishment, it makes people get back to work on their SEO again after we finally figured it out!My suggestion... fire the coders and invest the money into advertising so this platform starts growing eventually!The recent viewer is good/bad enough to get the newbies through until someone tells them how fine Singularity or Phoenix works.I was willing to give SL2 Viewer it's 5th chance today, all other viewers let me know that my graphic card is uknown to them but they won't cut me on the possibility to switch on features because of that! I run shaddows with Antialiasing 16x on the other viewers just fine, but SL would not even let me try!Well Done!(that was sarcasm just in case one of you Sheldon Coppers is reading) <--- that was sarcasm too!
