Cool Viewer's way of Rezzing?

Hey! I just started using Cool Viewer and I must say it is absolutely fantastic!

However, I've noticed when I go places that not everything will load. Something right next to me or a person next to me will not load unless I camera zoom on them or right click the object.

Is this normal behavior?

Thanks so much!

It does it the same way as the official viewer. A bit faster since the latest version now also caches small textures.

Guess you have some network issue with a slow connection to certain places aka sims you go that simply load slower than others.

Hmm.. weird. Because I've been standing in a store for a while right next to some clothes and they refuse to load past the "blurry" stage. This has been happening in all areas I've been in using this viewer.

I have no doubt that it could be a network problem on LL's side, but I think there may be more to this than that.

Edit: Would it have anything to do with the JPEG module thing we are supposed to use from the official client? Maybe my Cool SL Viewer is using the open source version resulting in slower loading?

I've noticed that with mine too but I've freshly installed SL and CV so it'll be the cache having to re-download all the textures again.

If you've got your distance set to be able to see from a far distance, this could add to the time frame images will load.

Yeah, I only have my distance set to 96. And I'm on a pretty decent machine. It's weird. It's like it's not downloading any data. Then sometimes all of a sudden I get a burst. This is really annoying when seeing avatars. They take forever to completely load. However, there is no way I can go back to the official viewer.

There is *no* change in the way the Cool SL Viewer rezzes objects and textures when compared with the official viewer. Please, make sure libkdu is properly installed.
