2016 HELP: HG: The case of the vanishing suitcase.

The case of the vanishing suitcases
Some people have lost suitcases from their inventories, apparently after a grid upgrade to OS 0.8.2.  The loss may be limited to the current Firestorm 32 bit version.  Workarounds are suggested.  

I have multiple reports of vanishing suitcases.  Many who travel the Hypergrid need the suitcase to carry things to and from other grids or even to read notecards in other grids.  If you get a notecard, you have to get it into your inventory and find it in order to read it.

  • Where is Arcadia?

        Possible minor cause (not new)

        • Hide empty system folders from inventory checked.
        • Not a bug.
        • Fix: Preferences   -- User interface  -- Interface Windows uncheck box.

        Possible major cause

        • On Kitely, my suitcase vanished after Kitely upgraded to OS 0.8.2
        • Not immediately, but when I traveled the hypergrid.  
        • Clearing cache seemed to fix it, but not permanently. 
        • OS 0.8.2 had a change to folder type for suitcase.
        • So visit to grid running older versions might cause problems.  
        • If so, problem will be solved as grids upgrade.
        • Meanwhile, some testing showed that the problem 
        • did not happen in Firestorm 64 bit, so showing a workaround. 
        • Problem: Bug in current Firestorm 32 bit. 
        • Workaround: If your machine can run 64 bit. use the 64 bit Firestorm.
        • Firestorm 64 bit shows me no problems and should be faster. 
        • So it may be a good replacement. 
        • If you can't use 64 bit Firestorm, I hear that Replex viewer solves the problem.
        • (Thanks, Judy Muircastle, for that report)
        • Singularity also should work, since it is the basis of Replex.
