Dolphin Viewer 3 –

Not too many new things in this release, but there are a couple of subtle improvements “under the hood” that my wife would have me castrated for if I held them back for much longer…

  • A few debug settings have been changed by default: “Disable Camera Constraints” is now on by default, “Limit Select Distance” and “Limit Move Distance” are now off by default.
  • The Windows version is now “Large Address Aware”. This has no impact on anyone other than people using the Dolphin Viewer 3 on 64-Bit Windows systems with more than 4 GB of memory installed, where it makes the viewer use up to 4 GB instead of the previous limit of 2GB. Should help a bit to make things less crashy.
  • The Windows version now runs on SSE2-enabled code. Should improve performance a bit, no idea why Linden Labs didn’t think of this one and the previous one – it should be included in the official viewer.
  • The align tool has been updated to reflect what is going on with it in CodeReview. No impact for the user, but it will make things easier for me later.
  • Finally, the jumping inventory bug has been fixed by the people over at FireStorm. If you keep a strict order and logic in your inventory by sorting your stuff, you know what I mean. If you don’t, you should – trust me.
  • The per-user settings get saved earlier in the logout process now, and only when the login was actually successful. This should fix the problem of some per-user settings getting reset to the defaults all of a sudden.

The downloads are in the usual place.

  1. Maybe it’s a typo. But “Disable Camera Constraints” would better to have it “on” by default. And in the past it was always off after a fresh installation.

  2. Hi Lance:

    As always your viewer is an excellent job and is new version SSE2 is much faster than previous versions.

    My PC with 4GBs of RAM with this version go much lighter than before and the viewer is more fluid with less waiting time when loading the worlds and textures.

    Thanks for the great effort and the great work that you are doing, you’re the best

    Greetings 🙂
