My 4 1/2 years old MacBook Pro is not the newest one. I never had the performance my friends told me from their Windows machines (50fps with "Ultra"
). In times of viewer 1 I had rates about 15fps which was ok for me, but when I switched to v2 framerate dropped noticeably. Finally when the mesh viewers came out it was a total mess: >5fps on sims with many prims - and even less when other avatars have been present! It was hard to move while textures loaded, and even if this was done it was no fun at all! I checked several viewers and Dolphin was the one with the best performance for me (although it was far beyond being perfect).
Now I checked Dolphin 22.214.171.124 and.... whooooooot... what's happening there
???? Textures are loading like hell, and I can move
while this is done! And now worry about other avatars
: I still can move
For me, this is the best performing viewer since I had my last v1 style viewer. SL starts to be fun again
