Imprudence 1.3.0 RC2

Release Highlights

  • Vivox voice chat support is now included with Imprudence.
  • Streaming audio/video now supports the AAC codec (sound encoding), which is commonly used in MP4 videos.
  • Fixed numerous bugs from 1.3.0 RC1.

Known Issues

  • The "Cancel" button is missing when the teleport screen is disabled.
  • The Animation Overrider window needs to be open when standing up from sitting on the ground in order to activate stands.
  • Tiny prims are sometimes invisible until selected.
  • Lossless textures sometimes appear corrupt/black when using OpenJPEG (the workaround is to copy llkdu from an SL 1.23 installation).
  • Building grid ruler marks are invisible when stretching prims if "Disable Max Build Constraints" is enabled.
  • Prim position and rotation are sometimes improperly rounded to >4 decimal places.
  • Avatar textures may appear invisible when HTTP textures is enabled (a rebake fixes it).


In addition to the Release Highlights above, this version of Imprudence also includes the following changes, as compared to Imprudence 1.3.0 RC1.

Known Issues With OpenSim

If you're using Imprudence to explore the larger metaverse, here are a few OpenSim bugs that you should be aware of:

  • Clearing cache causes "body parts not found" error and your avatar to login as a cloud. This will also happen on first login to many OpenSim grids. The workaround is to change your shape then relog.
  • Megaregion teleports fail except in the root (SW) region.
  • The "Cancel" button does not appear during teleports on most OpenSim-based grids.
  • When sitting, the camera's default center is the root prim, not the prim you're actually sitting on.
  • OpenSims using CS2JK to bake avatar textures might corrupt an avatar's appearance (looking "rainbow" or "checker-boarded") when using openjpeg. A rebake will generally fix this.
  • Sometimes OpenSim loses an avatar's appearance, causing changing clothing to fail and the avatar to permanently look white, even after a rebake or a relog.
  • Sometimes prims or land become corrupted (i.e. look "rainbow") an excessive amount. The workaround for this is to copy llkdu from a Second Life 1.23 install into the main Imprudence folder.
  • Creating new outfits causes the viewer to crash on many OpenSim-based grids.
  • Right clicking a landmark and selecting "About Landmark" causes the viewer to crash on most OpenSim-based grids.
  • Sometimes avatars become stuck as unbaked (i.e. white) on OpenSim. Having stuck avatars rebake fixes this in most cases.
