Second Life Debug Settings

By Xah Lee. Date: . Last updated: .

To turn on debug settings, first turn on Advanced Menu by 【Alt+Ctrl+d】, then it's in the menu “Debug Settings…”. In Phoenix Viewer, press 【Alt+Ctrl+Shift+s】.

Here are some of the ones i find useful:

CameraMouseWheelZoom (does not seem to work)
AFKTimeout
AllowIdleAFK
AllowMultipleViewers
ShowNewInventory
MiniMapRotate
AutoAcceptNewInventory
EmeraldIgnoreFinishAnimation
RenderGlowIterations

Full List

Open the file at c:/Program Files (x86)/SecondLifeViewer2/app_settings/settings.xml

the settings are documented there in a xml file.

Each entry looks like this:

<key>AFKTimeout</key>
<map>
  <key>Comment</key>
  <string>Time before automatically setting AFK (away from keyboard) mode (seconds, 0=never).
  Valid values are: 0, 120, 300, 600, 1800</string>
  <key>Persist</key>
  <integer>1</integer>
  <key>Type</key>
  <string>S32</string>
  <key>Value</key>
  <real>300</real>
</map>

Note that the official doc at secondlife.com Debug Settings misses some 200 ones (as of 2010-07). The xml file is much better.

Emerald (Phoenix) Viewer

Emerald Viewer adds the following, but may contain more settings not in the official viewer and does not start with “Emerald.”. You can also see Emerald's full list at c:/Program Files (x86)/Emerald Viewer/app_settings/settings.xml

Note: Emerald is dead. Phoenix Viwer is a derivative and inherits most of the properties. Phoenix c:/Program Files (x86)/Phoenix Viewer/app_settings/settings.xml
