  • Okay, that was an extremely funny video Jessica. *claps* With lines like: “Not that kind of DUI ..” and the house falling apart, “OH %)$%)$ %R)$%)($% %T)($)%E_)@ )$ WHOEVER MADE THIS %R()$%)$%$ VIEWER! CRAP!”

    Great job! :D

    Seriously, this would be definitely on my top list of requests :)

    Oh, and the video is lovely, I especially loved how everything “failed” on combat and house building hahaha….

    Wonderful idea :) Keep those April Fool’s videos coming :)

  • hehehe. Great video. I too, want to have that doggypoo drag step animation. Thanks for all your hard work and I can’t wait to see what the future brings for Firestorm and SL. Can’t wait for the next BLEEPING video :)
    PS. The ability to take chat and menus outside the window DOES sound interesting.

  • The dog poop AO was cute — reminds me of all the people who think a “clean install” means blowing the nacho Doritos dust off the screen and then when an update has issues cones into Support chat and screams “Well thanks JUST so much –this new viewer is (dog) crap and now my SL is ruined , over ” etc. Of course , they come in daily to announce that .

    Thanks for the best viewer and for the support.

    Too bad you didn’t make last years FS mobile product – you could have charged 4 bucks a hour

  • Excellent, just what I need for dual monitors! And Excellent double bluff too!

  • Funny! Oddly enough this has always been one of my biggest wishes of Firestorm. Moving windows outside Firestorm itself… XD

    Raith

    April 1, 2014

  • What a great April fools video… I can’t tell you the number of times I accidentally set one of my builds to physical and watched it fall down… I probably said the same thing, without the beeps… Almost as good as rocketing it into orbit. I love the twist at the end, it is AMAZING….. As a SL Pilot, I’d love to see the map be part of DUI as well

  • Just a suggestion. When playing an April Fool’s joke, you shouldn’t come right out and say April Fool’s right off the bat.

    Kara

    April 1, 2014

  • Oh dam you got me! :..) Hope you get the kinks out of that one real soon.

  • Great Video, loved it best you have done since the day of What More free stuff? But I think i need to stop looking for a DUI Attorney. :P

  • Hi Team,
    April Fool joke or not… you made it look so cool!!. Now I want one ! no joke :(. Floating windows are a dream Thanks for raising a smile Jess :))) and for adding to my wishlist
    Yayyyyy.
    PS you won the lottery. did they tell you yet?

    HarryHargreaves

    April 1, 2014

  • Wow! Did Christmas come and i didn’t notice?

    Seriously, it’s shall we say ‘slightly’ buggy, but that’s to be expected with an Alpha, other than that, it’s simply awesome.

    Nice work guys!

  • It’s pretty bad when a features viewers should of had from the start becomes an April Fools Joke

    To-mos

    April 1, 2014

  • Bad enough for you to exert some effort and do something about it beyond complaining?

    Guessing no

    Georgie

    April 1, 2014

  • I’m actually working on a viewer that does exactly this. so yes, I’m doing more than you about it.

    To-mos

    April 10, 2014

  • Actually, I want tear off windows!

    Dave Gaffer

    April 1, 2014

  • I have a feeling after the reaction to some April 1st announcements that (sadly) it’s safer to flag it as such :-(

    Thank you for the video though. Some parts of it were so funny.

    Hilary

    April 1, 2014

  • Great video. I really do wish this feature existed, but probably not unless LL does it first given how hard it is to make UI changes in the current viewer.

    Crim Mip

    April 1, 2014

  • Why the hell I let myself be fooled each time… :.(
    But this time I know why, this feature is a dream for a builder and a dual screen user… *cry* and *deep sigh*

  • Lovely. Next year, I will look for the mobile app for this one!

  • I bet the Phoenix office is loving reading these comments about how much you all want it, it’s a double bluff, if you want it, you can HAVE it…. http://www.firestormviewer.org/AprilFools
    It’s a little buggy, like scrolling in the separated windows zooms the view, but it works. I love it!

  • xD hahaha, very cute , was laughing the whole time lol. That would be cool idea tho.^^

    April 2, 2014

  • OMG OMG!!!! This is the first laugh I’ve had in days! LOL
    I hope Ed and Whirly enjoyed they’re few hours of being “fired” LOL
    This is such fun! Yush! Thank you so much for the wonderful viewer and the GREAT support!
    Now time to find out what mystery thinger I just installed from the /AprilFools link *ducks and giggles*

    Cherie Milneaux

    April 2, 2014

  • Well crap. I actually did get fooled. You really did it. Yeah it’s a bit buggy, but hey, I used the original alpha release of Firestorm as my main viewer. I guess I have a reason to hook up the big flat screen tv to the computer again. Can watch the world on that and deal with text on the sharp computer monitor. The joke may end up being on you with the number who may end up adopting this.

    Crim Mip

    April 2, 2014

  • I am so sad it doesn’t exist!! Oh I really wonder how you made that video, with the panels actually being outside the viewer? Or does it exist? Does it? *false hope*

    I laughed so much, thank you for the fun video.
    I didn’t know you could cuss like a sailor!!

    Arthy

    April 2, 2014

  • This actually exists… while it isn’t top of the line… as it is an alpha build, it is legit… the DUI is real, if a bit crappy visually, at least on my screen… it’s real

    Devon

    April 2, 2014

  • Yeah, I tested it. Can’t use it but the proof is valid! Amazingly done.

    Arthy

    April 2, 2014

  • Cute video. But really, I mean REALLY, I want those floating windows! Please please please consider adding that in a REAL mainstream build of FS!

    I think I would crash less if I used a smaller window for FS, but I always need the full space to have chat and inventory and build windows open. If i could move them out of the main visually intensive window and reduce the size of the SL window, I think it might go a LOOOOONG way to reducing crashes and (my) user unhappiness! Just saying….!

    Starsong

    April 2, 2014

  • Doh! … DUI is crap Firestorm…so limited I was expected the floating windows outside monitor screen at least …I mean …thats not much to ask. What about RL SL interface, so my avie can do some of the housework out here and teach me to dance.

    Loved the film, was it a cartoon, would love the dog poo ao if it exists.

    zoebuggy

    April 2, 2014

  • Really cannot see why anyone would need or want the feature of undocking windows from the viewer. If you need that space then have a higher resolution. Only funny thing I found in this video is the horrible voice and noob avatar for someone in the game so long and associated with one of the most used viewers. Also, Vista really?

    Erus

    April 2, 2014

  • Everything you said was repulsive.
    Because you can’t find a purpose for it doesn’t mean someone else has no use for it. The fact that has to be said makes you a twit. I find it useful but then again.. i do more in SL than complain like a troll.
    Dont worry about the appearance of someone’s avatar when your personality is far more uglier. Can’t fix that with Marketplace.

  • The only thing missing from the video would be a Final Destination style bus driving over Jess with a Wilhelm Scream with it.

    Fridgeirr

    April 2, 2014

  • Nice one!
    This Video made me laugh hard!
    And i really would love to use two or more monitors for sl building.
    *cheers*

  • I personally imagine that the dancers are actually your line of programmers coding away in the background while they gyrate. I want to be you when I grow up, Jess.
