Help..Avie keeps folding in half

Question

  • 0

Hello Charlotte, please see Reducing lag and How do I check for packet loss (network lag)?


  • Make sure your computer meets all of the Minimum System Requirements.It's best to exceed them in order to prevent bottlenecks, since theminimum system requirements are the minimum hardware required to runSecond Life at all. A slower processor, older video card, or low memorycan contribute to low framerates.
  • Make sure you have the latest drivers for your video card.
  • Take a look at the graphics settings in the Preferences window if you haven't already. Try moving the Quality and Performance slider to Low.
  • Check to see if your hard drive light is showing a lot ofactivity. If it is, then your system may be running low on memory andusing hard drive swap space instead, which is significantly slower.
  • You might need to turn your bandwidth settings down in the Preferences window if your computer is receiving more network data than it can handle.
  • Make sure your Internet connection meets Second Life's minimum system requirements.
  • If you're using wireless networking, you should trytroubleshooting with a direct wired connection; we allow, but do notsupport the use of wirless network connections.
  • Try opening the Statistics bar and seeing what your Ping Sim and Packet Lossvalues are. The ping values are the time (in milliseconds) it takes toreach the server from your computer. If this number is high, it couldindicate a problem with your network or internet connection. If Packet Loss is a nonzero number, your network or ISP may be having issues.

 

What is packet loss? Packets of data travel across computer networks, including the Internet, home or any corporate network. If one or more of these packets fails to reach its destination, packet loss occurs. These lost or dropped packets can result in performance issues.

If your network transport protocol provides for packet recovery, a transmitted packet that is lost will be re-sent. However, it will be re-sent along with every other packet of data that had been sent after it. This causes the overall throughput of the connection to drop.

Typical causes of packet loss.

High packet loss results in "lag".Connection difficulties can lie in any of the following sources: 
  • Your home network
  • Use of a wireless network
  • Your ISP
  • A third-party Internet connection between your ISP and our host.
  • Occasionally with our provider's network.

Hope this helps

you can get it free from people and if you can rez on the land rez it, sit on it, then it should clear up.

Yeah... Folding in half... This used to happen alot, but I havent seen it in a while, it used to happen when SL was doing restarts, and when we tped from regions using the new version to the old version and vice versa...

Anyways I know it used to happen alot, it just comes and goes I guess

The re-install seems to have helped. I havent seen me or anyone else fold over. And yes SL is full of glitches. They seem to be getting worse rather then better.

Thanks everyone for your help!!!!!!!
