|0008059||opensim||[GRID] Hypergrid||public||2016-11-16 16:22||2018-09-24 07:32|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0008059: Unknown UserUMMAU42 replaces real User Name in Viewer Chat Window|
|Description||When you visit opensim grids, one or more user names are replaced with the words Unknown UserUMMAU42 your chat window. This makes group communication impossible.|
This is a huge issue for hypergrid travelers. The weekly Hypergrid Safari provides an opportunity to investigate (and hopefully fix) this ongoing problem.
|Steps To Reproduce||Visit other grids. It will happen.|
|Additional Information||Below is a small sampling from Hypergrid Safari on Nov 16 2016. These 5 people all saw Unknown UserUMMAU42 instead of user names in their chat window. We were visiting a region running .83|
Viewer, Home Grid version
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Git Revision or version number|
|Run Mode||Standalone (1 Region)|
yes UMMAU42 and now also UMMAU43 are a old HG problem, a full fix may not be possible without changes to HG2.0
but it is possible 0.9 made it a bit worse with changes to improve in Grid tps, we will look into that.

I have noticed it, many times too. And also, not just during HG travels,
but also when I tp from region A to region B, within the same grid,
then randomly NPC bots also recognized by my viewer as Unknown UserUMMAU42
But not always, so it is hard to predict, when precisely it occurs.
Anyway, I have developed my personal workaround:
when I can see Unknown UserUMMAU42, then I open Firestorm preferences: CTRL+P
and in General tab, I do following operation:
I uncheck option: Trim "Resident" from legacy names
and after second I check it again.
And then, all Unknown UserUMMAU42 are replaced by correct usernames.
It works for me always, but I am not able to claim that it can help others.
|I have also seen this when I've HG TP'd to other grids.|
|This is still an issue at this moment, people will show up as UserUMMAU42 or UserUMMAU43 when on another grid.|
Most of this is a viewer side issue.
During teleports viewers keep asking the avatar names, for some time, to the start region, including avatars that are on the destination.
This will fail on HG or with NPCs, since the avatars are unknown to the start region.
I removed the UserUMMAU42 sometime ago.
Viewers will display the UUID on unknown avatars and a few minutes later they will retry, this time to the correct region.
