Singularity Viewer with Bento - Lighting bug now fixed



This is an update to the story originally published on 12th January.
The Second Life "Glow" bug is now fixed in version v6919 released today 8th February.

Download v6919 from the Singularity site located here:
http://alpha.singularityviewer.org/alpha/


The wait is finally over for Singularity Viewer users who have been waiting for Bento to arrive on their preferred viewer.

If you are already using the alpha releases, create a restore point, un-install the old version (your settings will be preserved) and head on over to the Singularity Alpha site and install Build 6905 to enjoy Bento in Singularity!

There is still a bug present which surfaced on builds beyond v6864 with objects using glow, where glow incorrectly shows unless Advanced Lighting Model is enabled.

!!This bug is now fixed!!
However, you can enable ALM and then turn off Shadows if you have a slightly lower end graphics card without too much impact in frame rate.  (CTRL+P Graphics tab).
You can also vote and follow this bug on the jira: https://singularityviewer.atlassian.net/browse/SV-2143


A reminder of some useful settings in Singularity:

Not seeing things that you know are there?
CTRL+SHIFT+V will reset the vertex buffers and redraw the area.

CTL+SH+ALT+C for Avatar Cost.   Cost and Weight can be toggled via Debug, see below.

Some useful Debug settings:

CTL+P > System > Security  autoteleport when region is restarting (drop LM in here)

LiruShowTransactionThreshold = 2 Do not pop up a notification box for amounts less than this value.
UISndRestart = UUID of sound to play on restart (replaces Torley Linden)
AlchemyRegionRestartShake = true  Shake the screen when region restart is imminent
ShortDateFormat  for European format:     %Y-%m-%d   change to   %d/%m/%Y
LiruLegacyLandmarks = true/false  Landmark saved with position e.g. (22, 258, 23)
LiruSensibleARC = False   Show new style render Weights not Costs
ShowSimChannel = True    Shows the Server name on About land top bar next to region name
LiruMapShowAvCount = True    Map shows amount of avatars on sim next to region name
AvatarNameColour = override the default name colours, you can still colour friends in vanity
LiruShowLastNameResident =  Turn on or off  last names ending in 'Resident' (on CTL+P too)
LiruNewARCLimit = Change threshold colour on Av Weight (suggest 120k value for >230kARC)
FontScreenDPI= (default is 96.0) try 104.0 for slightly bigger lettering
RadarNameSystem=3  Show Legacy (display)
FriendNameSystem = 3 Legacy (display)
GroupMembersNameSystem = 3 Legacy (display)
IMNameSystem = 3 Legacy (display)
