CtrlAltStudio Viewer Updated to Firestorm 4.6.7: Alpha

UPDATE: There’s a bug fix alpha that fixes the crash that some people were experiencing.

This alpha release of the CtrlAltStudio Viewer updates to the Firestorm 4.6.7 codebase and is available for people to try out. Notably, this update includes Linden Lab’s Project Interesting code, which should make loading world content significantly faster. Details of this and other changes and known issues can be found in the Firestorm release notes.

Please note that this alpha still does not work with Rift direct mode and Advanced Lighting Model needs to be turned on. It is built using the 0.4.4 Rift SDK.

Viewer download:

  • Windows installer: Alpha, 15 Mar 2015.
  • Mac OSX installer: Not available at present.

    No crashes here despite a dirty install alongside the Release viewer, though that might be because it uses a different directory for the Alphas.

    Seems to be running good and stable for me on Win8.1 x64 with Radeon.

    Speaking of which, is there any chance of integrating the recent Radeon fixes from Singularity to allow newer Catalyst versions to be used with SL rigged mesh? I’m still stuck on cat14.4 because of it (!)

      Thanks very much for reporting the viewer successfully running on your system and system details. The crash appears to affect just a few people, and it’s not necessarily caused by installing over the top nor fixed by a clean install. I’m looking into it now.

      Unfortunately, I doubt that I’ll manage to find the time to integrate the Radeon fixes from Singularity. Next on my list (after fixing the crash) is updating to Firestorm 4.6.9.

    Thanks fro the update David. I am getting a crash on every attempt to run this though… message says…

    Failed to find string Fontname in panel friends_panel from file panel_fs_contacts_friends.xml

    I was running on Windows 8.1. I went back to the previous version Alpha 5, and that worked fine.
