I won't release v7. I am discontinuing my work on the Gemini Viewer and going to put my ideas into Greenlife Emerald instead. You won't miss a thing, i'll even port the dark theme, only change will be the different name and tag color and more features x). I just don't see the point in branching any more, never thought Gemini would get that popular and i don't have the time to give support and work on the viewer all the time. So consider this project as over and switch, the next Emerald release is around the corner :)

You can download the source code here. I removed the binaries, please don't bug me for links. It's NOT PUBLICLY AVAILABLE any more. Emerald is over there >.> please use that. You can make it work on ANY computer.

this is what you miss :P (but you will find it in emerald soon)

- implemented RLVa-0.2.2b
- object chat now shows owner and is linked to the owner's profile, thanks to twisted laws

- changed UI size back to 1.0 :P too many people were asking how to change it
- admin menus now disabled by default but remember their state between sessions
- imported various trunk/snowglobe goodies/packet size tweaks for faster rezzing :) i noticed the more snowglobe features i put in, the more unstable it gets. i feel like this is a balanced combination for now.
- added debug setting "_GEMINI_KeepUnpackedCacheFiles" to keep unpacked cache files after logout (wav,dsf,lso,bodypart,clothing)
- fixed: Avatars completely invisible when first in sight, except for attachments; zooming in fixes it.
- added: Building hotkeys to select next/previous prim in a link set (ctrl "[" / "]")
- fixed: Gesture auto-completion adds uncommitted suggestions to the line editor history
- reverted: inventory behaviour: Can't copy a copyable item while it is worn

Gemini V6 comes with a sleek ergonomic UI theme in dark grey! just download, unpack anywhere and run the GEMINI.exe (sorry there are no mac/linux versions yet but maybe later) Credits for alot of patches and ideas go to the Greenlife Emerald team, Chalice Yao, Zwagoth Klaar and all the patch contributors on the JIRA.

- added an avatar age alert. you will be notified when an avatar younger than the specified amount of days is detected.

- fixed: IM Windows labeled as "Second Life" when using a combination of auto responses and show typing / focus
- fixed: some menu entries didnt check/uncheck correctly
- added debug setting "_GEMINI_AcceptTeleportsFrom", this is on top of RLVa and automatically accepts all teleport lures coming from this UUID


- changed some hard to read text and other UI issues. (alot of text is hardcoded as black so it was black on dark grey.) All fixed.
- added a debug setting "_GEMINI_UseChatBar" to disable the whole bottom chat bar and chat display in the bottom left (the bar that comes up when you press enter). All chat will go to the Communicate window.
- shift + enter key will now whisper your text in chat
- alt + enter key will now say your text in chat, IMs and Group chat, marked as OOC (this is for roleplayers, OOC means out of character)

- The menu entry/debug setting to hide selection outlines _GEMINI_RenderHighlightSelections now has a hotkey: ctrl + o (better fps when selecting MANY prims)
- Radar floater got the hotkey ctrl + a


- fixed: switched to FMOD sound library (OpenAL was causing lag issues, much better FPS now and no freezes! Also: Inworld Streaming works again :> )
- added more crash protections against crash exploits.
- optimized the default configuration for high end environments
- fixed: Purging cache textures causes viewer to pause for seconds with heavy disk activity
- fixed: Possible crash accessing dead llviewerregion
- converted minimap to XUI, Friends have yellow dots, Lindens blue dots, muted grey, every dot has the avatar name in the tooltip + sim host, rightclick for profile etc.
- Increased MiniMap zoom range, avatar markers magnify at higher zoom levels
- Added a Quickfilter drop-down list in the Inventory floater, which allows the user to quickly change the inventory type filter.
- Added Invite button to group list in communicate window
- Added Debug Setting "_GEMINI_RenderHighlightSelections" to Hide/Show Selection Outlines in build mode.

- added debug setting "_GEMINI_SendViewerEffects" to disable the Lookat beacon, particle beam and other effects to be seen - by others (you will still see it yourself)
- added debug setting "_GEMINI_PlayTPSound" to mute the TP swoosh sound (gets annoying when you doubleclick-TP alot)
- added import/export functionality for objects you have created! It doesn't have to be linked, just select the prims you want exported and use the pie menu > export, then import from the file menu (it respects permissions of course so you have to be creator with the correct permissions! this is great to import/export between grids, as it can auto-upload textures aswell)
- added keyboard shortcuts to toggle the radar and double click teleport
- added particle and sound source information to the avatarlist-floater (radar) and you can see who's tying there.


- several GreenLife Emerald features like IM encryption, clientside radar, IM autoresponse, Avatar Phantom, Clothing Layer Protection
- Constant Admin Override mode (lets you read out land media, always fly etc)
- Prims that get moved outworld (too close to a sim border) won't get reset to 256 meters altitude any more

- Added support for flexi sculpties (flexi sculpties are laggy, don't use them yet!)
- added an ignore button to friendship offers
- Sounds won't download anymore when volume muted
- Sound files wont be removed from cache anymore after logout (this also fixes the sound problem when running multiple viewers at the same time)
- Doubleclick on inventory items properly wears/unwears them, TP on LMs
- World Map UI fixes and ability to map up to 4096m
- Reversed some annoying UI changes

what is this???????????
Comment by Laura Seabrook on December 30, 2009 at 2:01pm
Yes, I find Rainbow more stable and less resource hungry than the new Emerald (though I still use that as well).
Comment by Jack India on December 30, 2009 at 1:18pm
Anyone have another link for the download? I prefer this viewer way over Emerald, even if it's no longer being worked on.
Comment by Zankisha Akina on December 18, 2009 at 5:54pm
As I said, Gemini is now part of Emerald, I don't know when you last tried it but it has become quite a stable viewer it's the only thing i use and I'm on a laptop. also Gemini was based off of Emerald to begin with, now that Skills joined the Emerald team alot of what Gemini had was incorporated into Emerald. so give it a try, also if your finding lag when you get IMs it's from OTR which can be turned off.

Hope that helps.

Emerald lags me out cause of all the features.
It doesnt work well and like I said the download takes forever. I just hoped GEMINI will be for download still.
Because once my laptop need a good reboot, and lose all my files, I wonder how I will play SL normal.
Comment by Zankisha Akina on December 18, 2009 at 4:08pm
Gemini Viewer merged with Emerald Viewer when skills joined the Emerald Viewer project, the Gemini Skin is selectable via the skin menu in preferences on Emerald Viewer the link to get it is here: Poke me
Comment by Matsui on December 18, 2009 at 4:01pm
Hello creator of GEMINI.
I have a problem now. The URL does not seem to work anymore.
Second Life, I use no other viewer than GEMINI. Why?
When running Regular Second Life, I do nothing but walk myself in the lowest graphic of lag.
Emerald Viewer? The new features and all the abilities you can do has been great developments.
But it kills me when I sign up on Emerald, and die of lag. Same as Regular SL, but a bit less.
However..... I now can't even download Emerald, the software is too big. Last time I tried, it took me 49minutes.
Now GEMINI....On other hand... I've been using this for months now.
This viewer never ever caused me any stres or trouble, it is well developped, has it's radar and is very, very great.
I am used to the dark layout, I love it, and the small fonts are helping to reduce lag.
However....Now that I see the broken link..How will I ever play SL again without lagging so bad? Please help me.
It's well appreciated. :)
