Dolphin updated yesterday, and I downloaded and am using it today and fairly pleased with it. It might become my new regular.

I downloaded have been using Catznip since March, though it doesn't have quite all the bells and whistles like build in AO, it's by FAR the best FPS and stability.

Nirans? LOL I think he updates every week, a coding machine! Still the best graphics and photos, but the interface is becoming more and more complicated and it can be a beast to run on full out settings. Worth it though for certain shots.

As far as I know, only Exodus is out of date and doesn't have the new direct delivery system. The rest all updated to accomodate it.

Looks like the last CoolVL update was May 1

I love the Third Party Viewer Directory page because it indicates those viewer with out of date features and then lists them all by crash rate and stability. (some viewers I use are not listed if they aren't officially approved)

http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Third_P ... _Directory

Each viewer has it's own pros and cons, just like everyone has different preference, and computers can be so different your performance might vary.

The last few months I was using Catznip for about 90% of my SL and giggling about finally having a stable well performing viewer, but I'm giving Dolphin a pretty hard test tonight and it's surprisingly good. On extreme settings at a club and not a blip. It also has a few features I forgot how much I missed from other viewers.

Still will switch to Niran's for photography though.

ETA - You can always try the official too.

yeah on dolphin viewer, when you click your avi to move the cameria around instead of you being able to move your avi left and right normally and such, its inverted and has a limited movement

Weird...
I'm not having that at all.

I'm sorry, I have no idea. I only started using it today and the camera seems the same as it normally is. Sorry.
