Emerald gets unstable

I’ve been using Emerald 2439 build since it was released 2 weeks ago. It was running fine, but for the last couple days it’s been flaking out on me.

1) If I login already wearing an alpha mask on my avatar, the part of my avatar that is supposed to be invisible, keeps flicking in and out as I move my camera around my avatar. I have to take off the alpha mask, wait a second, and then put it back, let it rebake my avi, and then won’t flicker anymore.  It wasn’t doing this earlier this week, started on Friday.  However, I think this is related to the asset server meltdown LL had Friday, since it’s been pokey every since then.

2) Viewer fails on start up when initializing texture cache. Again it wasn’t fucking up like this a few days ago, it’s been doing this consistently.  Rebooting my PC dosen’t even fix it, and since I can’t actually get the viewer to launch so i can go into preferences and select to clear texture cache. I have to MANUALLY delete the texture cache burred deep in system folders and files. (C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\SecondLife  <-delete that folder!!)

3) Colored name tags do work, but WHY can’t they make it so I can see my own colored nametag? I I ought to be able to change colors on my name tag from the pie menus from right-clicking my nametag (or avatar), rather than dig in a few layers in preferences for it.

Also it’s been two weeks since Emerald this last version of emerald was released, and they stated on their own blog a release candidate would be out the following Monday or Tuesday, but there has been nothing.

  1. I can confirm how buggy the latest release is. I’ve been trying for 3 days to get my avi to rez properly, but with no success. In addition to that it keeps crashing on me every 10 minutes it seems.
