Big thanks and much kudos expect many happy IM's from Mac users.
And it was peachy on the Macbook Air, textures loaded very snappy and the intel Gma chipset pushed 13fps in a not too laggy sim, which was rather peachy and quite useable ^^

Hugs Kirsten

Hyang Zhao said...

What are the main differences between your viewer, the Cool Viewer, and the regular viewer? Thanks!

Hyang Zhao said...

seems i need to make post about it, i will soon, there quiet bunch of features.

I'm copying some explanation I've written before. Hope that helps.

If you have ever used Nicholaz', CV is pretty similar from look and feel. It adds a lot of patches and features that make it pretty stable compared to other viewers. Comes in Windlight and non-Windlight (faster on older hardware).

There are 3 versions, 1.19, 1.21 and 1.22. Basically they all look the same and do the same. Under the hood the differences are:
1.19: Non windlight renderer. Rock stable viewer with most glitches fixed, all latest improvements backported. This will be your best bet when you do a lot of building and are not so keen on fancy graphics. Fastest on older hardware.
1.21: Windlight renderer based on the current official LL viewer. Has some problems as the official viewer like slow loading textures, but is also a very stable platform that crashes barely. If you have recent hardware you may choose this
1.22: Windlight renderer based on the latest RC 1.22.5, with almost all the issues of the RC. Bit more stable. It supposedly loads graphics a bit faster than 1.21, but people have different experiences. Try that if you want to have the latest development but expect crashes.

There is nothing preventing you from installing all 3 in parallel in different directories. I would actually recommend this to compare and find out what suits you most.

Latest versions are 1.19.0.5 R44, 1.21.6.0 R12 and 1.22.5.0 R1 (for Linux/Windows/Mac).

and all CV versions have pre-voice UI, which could be handy for many oldbies.
