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!



Bento head as seen on Singularity v6905


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)

Singularity Viewer 1.8.7 (6861) - Full Release





It's been a while since the last full release of the popular Singularity Viewer, with many of its users opting into the Alpha path to receive updates.

The wait is now over with a full main release: Singularity version 1.8.7 (6861) Dated 16th June 2016, is now available to download from http://www.singularityviewer.org/

For those wishing to remain on the Alpha path and receive this current version and the more frequent updates (although some will of course be better than others), see the Alpha download page and download the most recent version.
You need to use this to preserve the current directory structure of the Alpha paths if you intend to remain using Alpha releases. http://alpha.singularityviewer.org/alpha/

As with all viewer upgrades, its always best to uninstall the old viewer first.  Your settings will be preserved.

Here is a reminder of some of our favourite additional settings that can be used to customize Singlarity viewer:

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

Debug:
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 for Europe
LiruLegacyLandmarks = true/false  Landmark saved with position e.g. (22, 258, 23)
LiruSensibleARC = False   Show new style render Weights (FS style) not Costs
ShowSimChannel = True    Shows the Server name on About land top bar next to region name
LiruMapShowAvCount = True    Map shows amount of avatars 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)

Sadly,  no Mac version currently available.  A note from the Singularity team:
Unfortunately, we are left without a Mac dev and we would welcome applications. If anyone at all knows a mac user that knows how to program in C++, then PLEASE ask them if they would like to help us out so we can start offering an up-to-date singu for Mac.

Advanced Creator Tools > Singularity Viewer



Experience Editor in Singularity
London City is working closely with our friends from the Singularity Viewer Development team on Linden Labs Experience Tools, to bring the Experience Permissions system to you as quickly as possible and to ensure that third party viewers can handle the new Experiences correctly and as efficiently as possible.

An initial Singularity Experience Editor (early development and not yet available publicly) is already functional and it will not be long until the full experience package is available to everyone.

For transparency, we would like to make everyone aware that from time to time, Singularity Dev will need to rez objects containing the Experience Keys, but only scripts created by us and only in the London City2 region.  All our scripts are safe.  Singularity developers working with us will be clearly listed within our content creators tab within the Experience tools search option.

Remember, always use a trusted viewer for your security.
