Second Life: Project Bento Update 2016 w22

May be the universe is trying to tell me something… I had a heck of a time getting to the UG meeting again this week. I was logging into ADITI early, only to find out the meeting had moved to AGNI. Logging into AGNI I got a message that my voice chat could not be connected to the voice server. O.O

After 30+ minutes of trying I finally got voice working. Still I have most of the meeting in this video. The first 30 minutes is a mix of video and stills none of which is in sync with the voice. Things come back together at about the 30 minute mark.

Fortunately Aki Shichiroji was recording voice. She was late getting to the altered meeting location and missed the first 10 minutes or so. So, maybe it’s not just me. Whatever, she gave me a copy and I used the first 20+ minutes or so that I missed. You can see Aki sitting on a dragon in the video.

The first 10 minutes or so of the meeting is missing. I am hoping Inara has it. I don’t see it posted yet.

I started noticing a viewer render problem at about the 32 minutes in (TM32). I wasn’t sure what was happening. Only Bento avatars with lots of bone displacement and weighting to the new bones are demonstrating the problem. So the horses and dragon are the prime examples in my video.

Talking to Whirly Fizzel clued me to BUG-10991[Bento] Mesh rigged to the new joints either partly disappears, collapses or melts when viewing that avatar as an imposter. So, if you need a work-around check the steps to reproduce the glitch and then do the opposite, which would basically be turn off avatar impostors.

    Once upon a time, meetings were held exclusively in text chat (and yes, voice already existed in SL)… No voice issue, no understanding issue for people who, like me, are not native English speakers and who, while they write and read English fluently, can’t alas happen to understand a word of spoken English (and especially when spoken with an US American accent)…
    Then, Oz came, and suddenly the meetings were moved to voice, excluding and ostracizing non-native English speakers and causing all sorts of frustrations with voice not working, etc…

    Some call this a “progress”, I’d call it a regression…
