One thought on “2016 viewer release summaries: week 31

  1. With the vanishing Havok support in Firestorm, and the advice to use the LL Viewer if I need to upload Mesh, I am looking with horror at the standard LL colour scheme. I recall there was some sort of add-on for the LL Viewer which gave a choice, but I am not at all sure of the magic search term that would let me find it.

    The colour scheme problem has been there since Viewer 2 came out, and LL have done sod all for their customers with imperfect vision, even though the existence of this add-on shows that alternative colour schemes are possible. I am apparently stuck with having to use their viewer until a 64-bit LL Viewer is released with Havok support,

    Please provide a link to that colour scheme changer for the LL Viewer in your regular summary, Otherwise, it is not impossible that I shall resort to litotes to express my opinion of the people involved, rather than resort to their superb office management software to submit my apparently ignorable bug reports.

    (Yes, I know all the tricks, but excuse me while I deal with that hedgehog…)
