Future …

As it stands right now i´m going to lose my full-time job that pays for life.
Not sure how long i can pay the fees to keep my developer account with apple and the payments for the licenses needed.

For now everything will run as usual and updates (new features) will be released soon.

Stay safe and healthy !                        next update will be out early April.

Update 1.2.9113 waiting for approval

  • show current sim name in top bar
  • teleport to another region could silently fail and the app stops working
  • OSGrid login problems fixed

Logins are slower now. They wait for every step to complete. This prevents problems with using app functions before the client is fully logged in.

OSGrid login problems

While investigating the problems some people have and with implementing the new LL protocol i missed out on OSGrid.

After a user reported a problem with login to OSGrid – even send me the complete error message – i started to investigate the problem.

Five hours later, the problem is the ancient XML-RPC login protocol – not used by LL anymore – but OSGrid.

With the next update the login problems should be fixed, but some of the functions, like map or world-map still won´t work fully.

Login failed.

This “meaningful” message box i received from LL and Firestorm Viewer when trying to login.

Took some days till LL did restore the account – with a rather useless explanation.

Anyway after that forced break the work can continue.

 

Update 1.2.9112 waiting for approval

New year old buisness

Apple added some obstacles – again – to upload applications but it´s all for our security.

First update for 2020 is ready:

  • [X] button on login page to remove all chat history for all accounts
    ! only use this if you having problems with receive/send IMs or login
  • protocol updated to match new specs for LL servers
  • fixed: crash when not even logged in an push app to background
  • fixed: crash on database if username contains non-mac-ascii characters (still not supported)
  • fixed: crash on invite/remove friends

 

I do not reply to emails containing the f… word or other swear words.

Explain your problem and state the grid used to login plus the device AND the iOS version used.

Before blame the app, check the status of the grid used and their forums if your problem is common for all viewers – like the “account already logged in” many users had last days even with the regular viewers.

Last update this year 1.2.9111

Apples app-store is closing between 23. and 27. December for updates or new apps.

Sadly not all functions wanted could be implemented because this updates fixes some critical bugs.

  • protocol updated to match new specs for LL servers
  • fixed: crash when not even logged in an push app to background
  • fixed: crash on database if username contains non-mac-ascii characters (not supported)
  • fixed: crash on invite/remove friends

Be sure all emails are read; answering however can take some time because of hardware problems with that 2015 MacBook. The app has grown and Visual Studio demands more and more resources.

Merry Christmas and a
Happy New Year 2020
