My avatar skin is grey!!!

Okay...so I'm on a crappy free wifi server

Evrything else loads, my hair my socks, and the landscape.....but the rest of it won't load.....how do I refresh my thing again.

Btw my laptop is the bare minium

Sounds like a recipe for exactly what you're experiencing.

Set your graphics preferences to absolute minimum.

 

  1. Choose Me > Preferences.
  2. Click the Graphics tab.
  3. Move the slider to Low.

Also try advanced settings > Rebake Character.


And you might try re-loging a few times if you hadn't done so already.

Set your graphics to lowest setting.

You can also try toggling HTTP textures to "off"

But if the connection is that bad you simply may be stuck.

You could try one of the "Lightweight" alternate viewers. Some of them are pretty limited though.

Using the Viewer you download from here when signed up

 

I solved my 'white smoke puff' by switching my shape to the 'default' shape (the avatar they gave me at the start) then switched it back to my custom shape, Seemed to work. Some clothing, shapes and skins (especially free ones) can cause the smoke-look but usually switching out then back in can fix it.
