You can check to see if your ChoreoHUD has an update at any time. Wear it, click the gear icon in the compact mode, and select ‘Get Update’.
For MetaHarper Show Tools…
MetaHarper Show Tools will automatically check if it is up to date every time it loads. This typically happens when you change its notecards or add animations to its inventory. If it detects you are out of date, you will be sent a new package automatically.
If you do not wish to be nagged about updates, edit the MST_CONFIG notecard in your performance engine and set “UPDATES=NO”
If you do not yet have a MetaHarper Show Tools package, you can pick it up on the SL marketplace. Beta Tools packages are sometimes available at the Immersive Theater build platform.
Although your MST Performance Engine will work in any stage, some theaters have specifically set up template kits with MST users in mind. The kit typically contains a facsimile of the stage you can rez on your own build area with markers for where to place and name your MST centerpoints. You may wish to see if your theater has such a kit.
As of this documentation, there are customized MST Templates for the following Venues:
- A&M Stage
- Empire Room (Elysium)
- Guerilla Burlesque (various stages)
- MetaHarpers Immersive Theater
- Terpsicorps Theater of the Nine Muses
If you know of a theater that offers customized MST templates, please let me know and I’ll add it to the list.
Do You Need to Upgrade?
If you have an act packaged already with an older version of the tools, in most cases you do not need to upgrade it, but please do make any new acts with the latest version available for best performance.
