I got my spork produced. Hooray.
I got version 30013 of Hiphi downloaded about 2:30 in the morning Friday/Saturday. I was too tired to try making a spork then, but Saturday about 4:30 pm I tried again.
The new version appears to have stopped the prim flickering, thank goodness.
Linking and unlinking objects worked properly.
I rotated the linked spork when it was all done and linked and this time, instead of my linked object vanishing, it rotated just like it should have.
I copied and pasted the linked spork, which also appears to have worked correctly.
The new version also has changed the chat window, I’m not sure in I like all the changes, or how to use them properly. I won’t know for sure until I get the translated interface and a translated instruction manual, something to flesh out the barebones pictures annotated with notes.
I might try making it myself in a wiki but I get tired of starting wikis and such and being the only person to add any information.
