A new release of the Singularity viewer came out yesterday. If you are using Singularity, this is a strongly recommended update. There are some bug fixes that make this a more stable viewer.
You can find the announcement here: Singularity 1.7.1 Stability.
The download is about 24mb. Download files are getting smaller.
A number of people are finding that the viewer crashes when playing media, parcel music. Seems the wrong fmodex.dll was shipped. This has been corrected in current downloads, which is now build 2888.
There are some Pathfinding features. The console commands are included. The Rebake button for PF is included. PF Info is in the Build Panel.
The Linkset Editor and Character Panel have not been added yet. The Havok 2012.1 tool that allows rendering of the region’s navigation mesh (Navmesh) is omitted.
You only need to see the Navmesh if you are debugging AI Characters or you are optimizing building for Pathfinding. The Navmesh render is currently in the SL Dev Viewer and Beta Viewer.
Those with Norton Anti-Virus will need to turn it off to download and install Singularity. My ESET scanned Singularity and found no problems, as do several other anti-virus programs. Norton remains a problem.
I get great frame rates using Singularity. Without Lighting & Shadows, Ambient Occlusion, or Sun & Moon I get 45 to 56 FPS. Enabling L&S holds me to 44 to 48 FPS. Ambient makes almost no additional change. Oddly enabling Sun & Moon I get 45 to 50 FPS…
If you are looking for more FPS for a combat game this is probably a good choice.
Remember. This viewer uses a V1 user interface.
