any idea why the digital ocean servers aren’t updating?

Hi @rocklin_guy,

The updates on the cloud server are not automatic and they are manual. This is because you could be hosting an event and we wouldn’t want to update your server in the middle of your event. To update your cloud server, go to https://highfidelity.com/
Click on Cloud Domains.
Click on the yellow highlighted dots on the right side of the row and click on Update High Fidelity.

Good luck, let me know if you have issue!

That is what I’m referencing. The yellow dot update does not work. *edited, see below


#5

Hi there

So yes, we did find an issue with that update. We have fixed that issue. Please retry again and let me know if your still running into problems.


#6

New sliders for “Haze: Glare Angle” and “Haze:Background Blend”…
This is very nice to have a slider, but frankly, if we can see and set the value directly this is a bit too much inaccurate… (to not say useless).


#7

Spotlights are still broken… Wasn’t it supposed to be rollbacked in the 59?

If some new people use them on their domain like they are now… They might complain when you will fix it because it will be perceived as broken by them.


#9

You can stand in somones bubble and reload the userlist to see them again


#10

Thanks Judas, I will investigate on this


#11

Does anyone think that little pok pok noise on the menus adds anything? ie it went pok it must be selected?
