  • Add signal for avatar skeleton changing
  • Put result of Avatar::getJointNames back in index-order

  • Audio injector smart pointers

No hot Keys. No ctrl b. WTF!

Lol the removal of mirror mode does kinda kill the ability to take selfies that’s a brave move but fortune favours the brave
But back of my head selfies could be the next big thing lol who knows
If the spectator cam worked in desk top mode and could take snaps
Meh maybe remove desk top mode completely
Would stop people using hifi better than this drip by drip removal of usability

Re this learned at the meeting that mirrors aren’t that far off which kinda solves the selfie thing once it arrives


Changing between hud menu items i want to cllick along the list and each one to open and the previous one to close automatically , Currently i have to manually close each before i can open the next


with this release i am getting red arrows that flash on entities when i cam around (desktop mode). anyone know what those are? They don’t stay on the screen, but i caught them panning and hitting print screen:


Interface won’t launch anymore after working initially post update.


It seems that we need to shutdown the localhost sandbox if we were in it at our last session. Otherwise Interface is indeed not able to start.


Yep, just figuring this out… also reset my modem seemed to work this time.



Looks like you have Developer->Physics->Highlight Simulation Ownership checked


Brain Stormer, thanks that was it


We are seeing things differently from eachother
i built this door way that clears my head

thats gotta be a bug


You got a virtual Ames Room, Judas!
