Comments on: An update from McCabe http://blog.kokuaviewer.org/2010/08/28/an-update-from-mccabe/ News about the Kokua and Imprudence Viewers Sat, 04 Aug 2018 14:38:36 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=5.1.1 By: Dylan Rickenbacker http://blog.kokuaviewer.org/2010/08/28/an-update-from-mccabe/comment-page-1/#comment-1695 Fri, 03 Sep 2010 21:30:10 +0000 http://imprudenceviewer.org/?p=1006#comment-1695 For what it’s worth, I talked a friend into trying Imprudence today, and the first thing she said was “Ooooooh I like that font!” :-)

As for me, if there’s one thing I really miss from my Emerald days it’s previewing animations in-world on my own avatar before uploading. That, even before the radar, was Emerald’s killer app for me, and I’d love to see it in Imprudence.

I recommend checking out the official “Where Did It Go?” thread on the forums if you’re looking for something specific but can’t seem to find where we placed it (disable camera constraints, which is in Preferences > Input & Camera, is another one that takes some getting used to for people).

@Redwood: we’re still waiting to hear what the final determination is on that by LL. Imprudence, however, complies with the GPL in all the libraries we use and distribute, so I don’t see it impacting us too much either way. If anything, I hope it’ll raise interest in developing openjpeg for more people–our current default renderer.

Most of the features that I’ve found helpful in other viewers are in Imprudence. However, looking through the Advanced menu I can’t seem to find a High-Res Snapshot option. Is this a feature on Imprudence and if so where is the tab located.

It has become clear from the LL’s demands to the Emerald team that they consider any loading of llkdu (as well as emkdu) to be a violation of the GPL under which the viewer code is licensed.

You indicate above that llkdu will be used by Imprudence if available – could this cause Imprudence to also be removed from the TPV and shut down by LL?

I think you all already know I think the world of you, but just to put it out there…here’s a ton of hugs, kudos and love just for you. (and lots of extra syrup for Jacek)

Its like going back 20 year in time using Wordperfect. Maybe a stretch but thats what it reminds me off. On the other hand, i will be sticking with Imprudence wether it gets fixed or not. Hooray to you all from IMP, fr thanks to your viewer my personal fps is off the charts! With SL1 i could get at most 17to 21 FPS and now having made the switch to Imprudence and tweeked all my settings as i need them to be, my personal fps has increased to a whopping 69-70fps doing nothing standing between the laggiest vendors on the SL grid to 40 fps running about, having texture loading all around me.

So Cheers Imp, Keep up the good work!

Traditionally, the three main devs have been Armin, Jacek, and myself, but we also list what viewers we’ve taken code from and individual people who’ve contributed patches to either Imprudence or other viewers that we’ve used. You can also read who’s done what were in each version’s release notes (a high priority for us is to go through the release notes and make sure we’ve added everyone who’s contributed to 1.3; it’s currently somewhat out of date) as well as the ChangeLog.txt file included in the viewer.

There’s also a fantastic group of people out there who help us by reporting and tracking down bugs, testing fixes, responding to people on the forums and in chat, etc., such as Thoria and WhiteStar on 3rd Rock Grid, Nebadon, Grey, and Eryn on OSGrid, and Tazy, Shige, and Codie on SL, and Ron just everywhere, to name a few who pop into my head. We’ve also had a ton of new people interested in compiling and working on the viewer lately as well. Maybe we should do a “get to know your Imprudence developer” series here on the blog? We really don’t have any formalized structure, currently.

Sorry if this is answered somewhere already, but I searched the wiki for a page listing developers and such, and couldn’t find anything.

I find Twitter just doesn’t work for languages that use an alphabet instead of a syllabary.
