Debug Settings

Go to the Advanced menu and click on Show Debug Settings.

Things you might want to change:

  • ChannelBottomPanelMargin -- set to 30 to have your popup chats start a little lower
  • mediaControlFadeTime -- Amount of time before the media control window fades out. Increase from 1.5 seconds to 10 or so.
  • NearbyToastLifeTime -- How long popup chats are on the screen
  • PluginInstancesTotal -- set to 0 if you never want media on a prim to play, even if you click on a MoaP, or increase it if you want to see more than the default of 8. (Note that MoaP is not the only place where SLPlugin is used. It will also affect the "Home" panel of the sidebar, the Help Browser and the search. Setting this to 0 will not allow you to use the search anymore!)
  • ToastGap -- set to 0 to close up the gap between popup chats
  • ShowHoverTips -- set to FALSE to turn off in-world hover tips over objects. Alternatively, restore the menu item and the ctrl-shift-T shortcut by editing menu_viewer.xml and removing the two sets of comment markers near the word "hover".
