Known Issues

  • Sometimes an avatar's textures stay "white" for an extended period of time with ClothingLayerProtection enabled. The workaround is to set this to FALSE in Advanced > Debug Settings.
  • Eyes get stuck looking sideways with Private Look At enabled.
  • Tooltips don't disappear with mouseclicks or when your mouse moves from a specific control. The workaround for this is to clear the tooltip with your mousewheel or set ToolTipDelay to 999999 in the Debug Settings.
  • Some animations may not display their joints correctly.
  • Creating new Alpha or Tattoo layers only works in the Inventory.
  • Avatar layers may appear invisible when using HTTP textures. The workaround for this is to copy llkdu from a Second Life 1.23 install into the main Imprudence folder.
  • While sitting on an object, your avatar may appear invisible to users of unpatched viewers based on 1.22 or lower, such as Hippo Viewer 5.0.1. See VWR-9137 for more info.
  • Streaming audio/video that use the AAC codec will have no sound. This is caused by our inability to distribute libgstfaad due to licensing reasons.
  • Sometimes inworld sounds (OpenAL) stops working on Windows XP. A relog usually fixes the problem.

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.
  • 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"). 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 most OpenSim-based grids.
  • Right clicking a landmark and selecting "About Landmark" causes the viewer to crash on most OpenSim-based grids.
