Known Issues


Possible Texture Loading Issues when Switching Between Viewers

  • Intermittent texture loading problems have been seen when transitioning between Viewer 2 and other official Second Life Viewers. If you experience this issue, the problem may be resolved by clearing your cache and re-logging into Viewer 2 using the following the process:
  1. Go to Me > Preferences
  2. Select the Setup tab
  3. Press the Reset button
  4. Logout and log back in

Possible Temporary Corruption of 1.23 UI if Viewer 2 Installed in Same Directory

  • Installing the 1.23.5 Viewer over Viewer 2.0 may result in a temporary corruption of the 1.23 UI. This potential problem can be avoided by installing Viewer 2.0 in a different directory - this is the default behavior of the Viewer 2 Beta installer.

Plain Text Chat Using Double-Line Spacing

  • Plain Text chat is using double-line spacing, instead of single spacing.

Possible Configuration Issue when Creating Groups

  • When creating a new Group, attempts to set the Content Level may fail.

Buttons and Fields on Object Profile May be Deactivated

  • Some buttons (the Back button, most prominently) and fields on the Object Profile page may not work at certain window sizes. If you notice this problem, please resize the viewer window and try again.

Disabling JavaScript Removes Links from Search Results

  • When JavaScript is disabled, Search results are not presented as live links. Re-enabling JavaScript will correct the problem.

Potential Shared Media Issues

  • Possible crash of Shared Media instance when using input type="select".
  • Setting a "click to" action in the Build tool may break Shared Media interaction.

Hiding Language Preferences from Scripted Objects

  • In 1.23 you could opt to hide your language preference from objects via a check-box on the Preferences > General tab. In Viewer 2, this capability has been moved to Advanced > Show Debug Settings. In the Debug Settings dialog, select 'LanguageIsPublic' and set the value to 'False'.

Deferred Rendering

  • In Viewer 2, Deferred Rendering is experimental functionality only and will not be officially supported.
