Known Issues


Frame Rate May Drop Significantly with Basic Shaders On

  • SH-1903 Basic Shaders On chokes framerate in 2.7.4 - Basic Shaders default to On for class 2 and higher hardware. If you find that your FPS is slower than usual, you may notice improvement by turning Basic Shaders Off... go to Me > Preferences > Graphics > Advanced, and de-select 'Basic Shaders'.

Floaters Disappear When Editing Group Roles in Attached People Side Panel

  • VWR-25821 Editing Group Roles causes portions of the UI to disappear - The problem occurs when attempting to edit Group Roles with the People panel attached to the sidebar. The workaround is to use the |<- icon to tear the People panel from the sidebar prior to editing Group Roles.

Shiny Metal Texture Renders Improperly with 'Lighting & Shadows' Turned On

  • SH-1912 Shiny metal texture characteristics entirely lost when Lighting and Shadows turned on - If this problem manifests on your system, go to Me > Preferences > Graphics > Advanced, and de-select 'Lighting and Shadows'.

Highlight Transparent only works with Basic Shaders Off

  • SH-1918 Highlight Transparent does not work if Basic Shaders are enabled - Basic Shaders default to On for class 2 and higher hardware. If you need to highlight transparent objects, turn Basic Shaders Off... go to Me > Preferences > Graphics > Advanced, and de-select 'Basic Shaders'.
