Pastrami Linden: im me questions!
Michael Linden is Offline
Mastorian Kingsford: weird why doesnt fog ratio work in new wl mines locked at 4.0
Pygar Bu: Hi! Sis!
Marianne McCann: Hiya
Pastrami Linden: [13:08] Spaceman Opus: I have a strange bug that generally happens in more crowded/laggy areas. Basically, my whole SL screen becomes unusable when camming around, and I have to guess at a camera angle to get out of it.
BigPapi Linden is Online
Pastrami Linden: Spaceman I believe that is known about
Pastrami Linden: panning issues, etc.
Pastrami Linden: [13:09] Mastorian Kingsford: why is fog ratio shaded and locked at 4.0 in new wl
BigPapi Linden: Mastorian: Because it has been depracated by WL
Mastorian Kingsford: well with it stuck now and the always water around me view from a hight my frame rates are bad
Bec Sadofsky: So the panning will be on the fix it list?
Pastrami Linden: Bec, yes
Bec Sadofsky: good hate getting stuck
Pygar Bu: /yay!
Bec Sadofsky: specially in class
Jingwa Nyanda: hello
Pastrami Linden: Mastorian
Pastrami Linden: what graphics setting are you at?
Aki Shichiroji: ...
Pastrami Linden: well, while you check
Pastrami Linden: [13:10] Elysium Eilde: hi, not sure how this works, never been before but...is anything being done to address the snapshot issues? I can not take a photo in WL at a custom size without crashing, as a professional photogrpaher, its hurting my business [13:11] Elysium Eilde: and i have attempted it on multiple Mac systems
Mastorian Kingsford: before i was at 129 distance and mediums settings with fog at 2.5 and wl was good frame rate now im at 64 seeing water everywhere out from me maybe 200 feet and bad framerates
Jeremy Linden: Jingwa, I'm going to ask you once not to rez those here.
Spaceman Opus: ty Jeremy
Pastrami Linden: ELysium, we are aware of snapshot issues-
Jingwa Nyanda: sorry
Pastrami Linden: and more specifically,
Pastrami Linden: in the months ahead we will be targeting only crashes
Pastrami Linden: Mastorian, try setting to Low and tell me if you can use fog distance ratio again
Rose Linden is Online
Elysium Eilde: it actually less of a crash than, SL hangs for so long it gets disconnected from the grid
Mastorian Kingsford: wl puts water all around me im always on island even at 256 range
Zen Linden is Online
Carl Omlet: Elysium Eilde: It may be related to the video memory problem with macs. How much video memory did the macs have?
Joshua Linden is Offline
BigPapi Linden: Mastorian, those figures mean nothing to me without your graphics settins and hardware settings.
BigPapi Linden: What are they?
Elysium Eilde: 512 video memory
Elysium Eilde: but i did not have this trouble a few versions ago
Runitai Linden is Online
Mastorian Kingsford: im at 256 megs of video ram and same setup from the im i sent you last time i showed you the water view
Carl Omlet: Elysium: 512mb ram, or 512mb vram?
Elysium Eilde: vram
Mastorian Kingsford: right now im seeing water full 360 as my distant view
Mastorian Kingsford: i have 2 gigs of ram and 256 of vram
Mastorian Kingsford: on xp x64 system not mac
BigPapi Linden: What's your graphics card? What do you have your graphics settings set to?
Mastorian Kingsford: ati 1250
Mastorian Kingsford: i can use up to 600 vram pulled from regular ram
Elysium Eilde: RadeonX1900 for me, not sure who that was directed at
BigPapi Linden: Yeah, but that's not a card that's very strong on shaders.
Pastrami Linden: we're on Mastorian now
Pastrami Linden: Mastorian,
Elysium Eilde: ok i guess i just have to wait for a fix on your end then, ty
Pastrami Linden: is whatever behavior you're seeing different from the last release?
Mastorian Kingsford: for somereason wl makes the fog water so i always have a beautiful full 360 view of ocean lmao
BigPapi Linden: yeah, sorry, the card not being good for shaders was meant for Mastorian, not Elysium.
Mastorian Kingsford: its not shaders
Hamilton Linden is Online
Pastrami Linden: Mastorian try this
BigPapi Linden: Are you on low?

BigPapi Linden: Try low
Free Radar HUD v1.1 by Crystal Gadgets
Free to Fly: All Go
Mastorian Kingsford: now i have uglay 360 ocean before i had sparkling water haha
Pastrami Linden: does your fog ratio work now?
Pastrami Linden: can you lower it to 0.5
Mastorian Kingsford: yeah
Pastrami Linden: but that doesn't solve your problem.....
Mastorian Kingsford: whats the deal with water always around does it use the water for fog ration or ground fog replacement
Pastrami Linden: sorry, we may need a screenshot
Mastorian Kingsford: that i can do
BigPapi Linden: Yeah, sorry. I'm not sure what you're referring to.
Mastorian Kingsford: the views
Mastorian Kingsford: now its aways a ocean view
Pastrami Linden: so you're saying your terrain is cutting off too soon?
Jeremy Linden is Offline
BigPapi Linden: Or that before the water didn't go as far.
Jeremy Linden is Online
Steve Linden is Online
Dahlia Trimble: location
Mastorian Kingsford: im saying booth regular client and dazele i see land the real view from where im standing , in all the wl clients i see ocean even when im on a city sim standing in middle of city

Runitai Linden: WL puts ocean out to the horizon regardless of what region is next door

Runitai Linden: er? what?
BigPapi Linden is Online
Mastorian Kingsford: thats the pic thats refusing to load from invintory
norritt Xi: Hi everyone
Jeremy Linden: I think it's something on our end, Mastorian. My attachments aren't loading either.
Pastrami Linden: the water plans vs. ground plane out to the horizon
Pastrami Linden: ^plane
Aki Shichiroji: oog.
Aki Shichiroji: same here.
Runitai Linden: I don't expect to start drawing the ground plane with atmospheric shaders on, no
Mastorian Kingsford: all i can say is every 250 feet out from where im standing i see water
norritt Xi: Jeremy: I guess grid / asset routing is a mess again, there are nasty packet loss spikes
Mastorian Kingsford: its only in wl clients
Runitai Linden: water out to the horizon is by design
Mastorian Kingsford: even on a main land sim
Runitai Linden: it's the only way to keep gaps from appearing in the horizon
Runitai Linden: later we'll render terrain out to the horizon, too :-p
Bec Sadofsky: like how much later?
Mastorian Kingsford: my house sits on hill i look off baclcony im on island trouble is im on a snow mountain sim
Runitai Linden: more than six months out, less than 2 years
Mastorian Kingsford: lol
Pastrami Linden: [13:14] Dahlia Trimble: hi, I'm still having a problem with VWR-3241. could you talk about that one during this meeting?
Dahlia Trimble: thats the particle density one
Dahlia Trimble: it acts like particles that arent visible count against the total particle count
Sidewinder Linden is Offline
Dahlia Trimble: so if there are particles from far away that arent visible, they take precidence over particles from sources nearby and in the viewport
Runitai Linden: the dev who was working on that isn't here...
Zero Linden is Online
Dahlia Trimble: the other viewers dont have that problem
Michael Linden is Online
Runitai Linden: I'm pretty sure that bug came in with an open source patch
Summer Seale: hi norritt =)
Runitai Linden: which was supposed to do the opposite, I'll follow up with whoever was working on it
norritt Xi: hi Summer =)
Dahlia Trimble: this recent series of windlight viewers is the first time I saw it
Dahlia Trimble: thanks :)
Colossus Linden is Online
Pastrami Linden: Runitai, Bao was on that internally
Dahlia Trimble: that name sounds familiar
Pastrami Linden: [13:30] Summer Seale: if we add hot mustard to pastrami, will it glow in windlight? =)
Pastrami Linden: the soul crushing truth
Pastrami Linden: the agonizing admittance
Marianne McCann giggles
norritt Xi: There is no spoon so we cant do that
Pastrami Linden: queue is empty

Dahlia Trimble: I dont know if there is a jira, but my frame rate goes down if my inventory window is open

esf123 Sodwind is Online
Runitai Linden: do you have a lot of folders open?

Summer Seale: lol yes
Dahlia Trimble: I normally have 15 fps or better
Spaceman Opus: Live Music Enthisiasts gets like that too, trying to send a notice out
Pastrami Linden: I would jirafy
Runitai Linden: you can see what's taking time by looking at fast timers
Runitai Linden: client->consoles->fast timers
Dahlia Trimble: ykes... it would take me a while to decifer that graph
Bec Sadofsky: hard to read with a clear back
Runitai Linden: just look for the big bar
Dahlia Trimble: they are all pretty even
Dahlia Trimble: mostly green
Runitai Linden: open up render
Spaceman Opus: for Live Music Enthusiasts, it looks like Decode msgs and Process Msgs get the brunt if ut
Runitai Linden: by clicking on it on the left
Mastorian Kingsford: i suspect the wl prgramers in dark cubes and dream of ocean views lol since they make wl always have ocean views of water ripples with sun reflections lmao makes me always on island kinda lmae when every sim is ocean view lol
Runitai Linden: I live on a peninsula
Dahlia Trimble: lots of pretty colors lol
BigPapi Linden: I live on an airship perpetually hovering over the Pacific myself.

BigPapi Linden: UI just got PWN3D!!!
Hamilton Linden is Online
Runitai Linden: er, if it's a slow frame rate when IM'ing a group, that's a different bug
Jill Linden is Online
Runitai Linden: which has been fixed internally
Dahlia Trimble: seems to be working :)
Michael Linden is Offline
BigPapi Linden: Maybe it's time to re-evaluate defaulting that to true across the board
Pastrami Linden: alright everyone all that bad stuff I say about Runitai in other office hours is TOTALLY false
Mastorian Kingsford: like to see a road lol
Dahlia Trimble giggles
Dahlia Trimble: thanks ;)
BigPapi Linden: lolz

Pastrami Linden: [13:42] Marianne McCann: (I still need to JIRA this, but as the queue is empty). On my 20" iMac, I sometimes see flickering" Linden trees, where they go into a red, negative image, or even change to a different Linden tree texture. Has anyone seen anything like this?

Pastrami Linden: soon, will be RC
Pastrami Linden: alright, time is winding down
norritt Xi: I didn't figure any constant reason out yet though tried to provide as much detail as possible. The problem is that the I can't do any research due to the complete system freezing. In many cases SL doesn't even realize the crash
norritt Xi: http://jira.secondlife.com/browse/VWR-5089
Morpheus Linden is Offline
Runitai Linden: if this is the same bug torley was epxeriencing, turning off occlusion culling is a workaround
