Playing with Windlight, Finally

Category: Second Life Clients, Second Life Viewer, Windlight by Stone Culdesac

Finally got the Windlight client to work for me, if you are having trouble with the client, in my case everything was washed out looking, except for the cool reflections, then you should first download the latest drivers for your video card, new ATI drivers were released last month I believe, and the drivers for my NVIDIA GeForce were released in December. Combined with the latest release of the Windlight client and my pictures are already looking better.

Here are a couple new shots of Primula Rasa.

We were able to solve a lot of the ATI shader problems that existed, but in order to really take advantage of these fixes, we implore you to get the latest Catalyst drivers for your card.

In other news, this release includes most of the changes from the new 1.19.0 Release Candidate, including old-school login auth. With most of the login issues resolved, we should be able to get much better crash and performance stats with this new First Look. We’re getting very close to merging into RC, and are hoping to use better crash statistics to drive the crash rate far below where it currently stands.
