So far my FPS is great and that is on ultra and with mesh viewing. Some of the setting had to be reset from the beta with a bit of looking but pretty good so far.

You can make it look like Viewer 1 with some modification but if you really don't want to change much I would wait for the mesh enabled phoenix which is supposed to be out soon.

It's very nice, as viewer 2 look styles go, its the best one out there yet i feel comfortable with it, as its really close feeling and looking to the phoenix set up, its something of a blend really of viewer 1 and viewer 2. I would say they hit the nail on the head really in incorporating everything in a good blend finally. I will need to tweak it some graphically wise to achieve the best results for my card but so far it seems quite decent and fair as fps goes. I really like the blue skin for it as well, all save for the blue back ground for the chat box with white lettering, its not terrible, but its not the best either, Ill put up with it. all in all I would rate this viewer a thumbs up :thumbup:

No it just saves me from having the little Word window open on top of SL instead of a NC inside the app. ;)
I have been in love with firestorm for awhile now and this was my last major issue with the app. :clap: :lips:

It's a V2 build, but you can adapt parts of it to resemble V1 more. Thank god, because I really hate "toasts". LOL

I loved Firestorm till it started to get all laggy and buggy and stopped wanting to load textures. >.<

I got the official release and so far I'm pretty happy. Textures seem to be loading fine, couple of the other glitches I'd had seem to be gone. Had the occasional crash last night, but that was during an attack on our combat sim so that could have been the lawlfurries scripts raping our time dilation.

I'm cautiously optimistic. I love mesh, I love being able to layer tattoo layers, so I'm pretty happy to have Firestorm back, if it'll just behave this time.

Did you notice the "refresh texture" on the pie chart? It's a new feature to this release and I LOVE it!! You do have to click on the textures - whether it be a single prim or linked build - but it seems to work really well. I was clicking things the other night in Westeros and it made me very happy.
