2017 HELP: TECH: Avatar Psoriasis, a search for the cause or at least some cures

Avatar Psoriasis, a search for the cause 
or at least some risk factors
Updated 6/14/2017
My avatar appearance got corrupted recently.  Two other people have had the same problem.  I found some fixes, short of a clean reinstall of Firestorm 64, and, with only 3 cases, I begin to speculate about risk factors.

SMS (160) Short Poetry Workshop - Tue 6/13, 7pm SLT

This week the Short Poetry Workshop presents SMS-Poetry or 160 Poetry. If you’ve ever sent an SMS text message to someone here’s your chance to write some free style poetry, but limited to up to 160 characters - anything that would fit in an SMS message . U don’t need ur cell fones, just join us to learn, rite & share ur SMS poms. We’ll be w8ing 4 U @ E. Cookie 
Update: Fred B. suggested that I rebake textures, but that does not fix it.  The only cure I know is to relog in Firestorm 32 bit and change avatars.  It is probably a bug introduced with the code that makes FS adjust to HD screens.


Where the problem appears

  • On my new machine with HD screen: 3840x2160
  • Using Firestorm 64 bit
  • Using Intel integrated graphics 

Where the problem goes away

My simple solution

  • Use Firestorm 32 bit on my new machine.  
  • The suitcase folder is sometimes missing from inventory in FS 32.
  • To get it, I click on the gear graphic, bottom left.
  • Then click the show filters button on the panel that comes up.  
  • Then click Always show folders on the filters panel.
  • This setting may not stick, so I may have to do this whenever I need the Suitcase

In the Filters panel, 

click "Always show folders"

  • If I ever have reason to use FS 64 on my new machine, I can use the Nvidea card.
  • I avoid that because it heats my machine a lot and I find Intel integrated adequate.
