Update 2008-03-06: This refresh has been delayed in order to avoid impacting testing of a current Havok4 build, and to accomodate other uses of the Beta Preview. We currently expect to do this refresh late next week.
This post applies only to the Second Life Beta Preview Grid, and this refresh will have no effect on your normal Second Life user account.
The Beta Preview database, which contains all user account and inventory information for the Havok4 (and Mono) Beta Preview grid, will be refreshed on Monday March 3rd.
This will take the Beta Preview offline for a period of up to 24 hours, and will result in:
* User account list updated so that accounts present on Second Life as of Feb 28, 2008 may log in on the Beta Preview
* User inventory updated to match Second Life inventory as of Feb 28, 2008
Please note that this operation REPLACES any and all inventory and user account information on the Beta Preview, so if you have scripts that you do not want to lose, and they only exist there, please log in and save them before the database refresh starts. In addition, any content placed out in-world on the Beta Preview will be removed by the refresh.
MONO BETA TESTERS:
Mono beta testers need to know a couple of additional details. The recent update to the latest Mono breaks scripts compiled before that update. If you receive this error:
1.2 MONO: Script run-time error
1.2 MONO: System.Security.VerificationException: A system exception has occurred.
at LindenLab.SecondLife.Script.Deserialize (System.Byte class_data, System.Byte object_data)
… you will need to recompile the script so that it acquires the latest
If you have developed scripts on the beta grid, they will no longer be
in your inventory after Monday’s db refresh. You should copy / paste the
scripts to files on your computer until after the refresh.
