Hello there,
I absolutely love Snow Globe (too many good things to mention about it) but
I am not sure whether this issue is Snow Globe related or not/or
whether a Snow Globe install interacts with existing SL installs in
some way.
Last night I was very eager to deploy Snow Globe in my lab and gave
instructions to deploy at a remote one. Unfortunately, out of the
blue, I found that my avatars were not rezzing and experienced lost
inventory items (? e.g. failed skin loading, body shapes, and various
avatar items not found). After having checked that the same issue was
happening for other users in my local lab as well, I tried to back
track and...found that even the latest versions of the client 1.22+
were having the same issues. Avatar rezzing and general texture
loading issues were somewhat reduced when I rolled back to 1.22
(inventory items re-appear). I never had this issue before, and it is
a show stopper. Something looks broken for versions > 1.22. In short,
am confused, dont know if the problem is client side, server side, or
SG related.
steps I followed:
1. Install SG, if u see 'failed to load messages' and a gas avatar,
log out, uninstall
2. Install SL versions 1.22+, same problems repeated for 4 different
users. (Event too important to risk it...)
3. Install SL version 1.22, avatar rezz properly but general texture
rendering issues.
