Warning! Do not upgrade to Havok 4!

Thursday, January 24, 2008

Havok 4 is a new physics engine that Linden Lab is rolling out. Private island owners have the option of requesting an early upgrade to Havok 4.

Havok 4 contains several bugs which break En Garde. The En Garde game and its scoreboards will not work in any Havok4-enabled region. If you upgrade your region to Havok 4, any En Garde games rezzed there will stop working.

If you would like to communicate to Linden Lab that you would like this bug fixed as soon as possible, you can write a comment and vote for the bug here:

http://jira.secondlife.com/browse/SVC-1239

For those who have owned En Garde since the beginning, this is the same "llSetLinkPrimitiveParams" bug that killed En Garde the first time.

Please take a moment to follow that link, log in to JIRA, and vote for the bug (click the vote link on the left side). While you're at it, vote for this bug too:

http://jira.secondlife.com/browse/SVC-1146

That is a separate bug in Havok4 servers that is causing the scoreboards to malfunction.

My timing was atrocious; I just built my new stadium and went from 1 EG strip to 3 earlier in the week. Then my estate owner decides to play in the Havok4 test. Pfui.
