Teleports failing

Question

  • 0

while there can be all sorts of technical reasons that add to your problem (bad connection or low bandwidth, using wireless, a not quite cooperative firewall) which you maybe should check on in the future as well, here's a procedure that often fixes it at least short term:

in preferences clear your cache (in viewer 2 that's clear history)

take note where your cache is located on your harddrive (you can see that under setup in preferences)

clear your group cache in the advanced menu (if you do not see advanced in the menu bar, hit CTRL ALT D to make it show up)

close SL

find your cache folder on your harddrive. delete whatever is still in there. (but leave the folder as such where it is)

restart your rooter or modem if you have one (usually done by simply unplugging it from electricty, counting to 10, plugging it in again. if you have soemthing fancier you probably know how to do it )

restart your computer

log back on, preferably to a region different from the one you logged out of.

For performance and appearance sake, open your inventory and wait till it's loaded.

 

as for the other things: keep in midn that SL uses lots of bandwidth. and what is more significant is that upload bandwidth is technically significantly smaller, however as important to run SL. so if you have a 2 k connection but try to run SL with 1k in your preference settings for bandwidth - you will sort of hit an invisible wall. SImply because your upstream is permanently clogged.

Do not attempt to teleport at a giant draw distance unless you know your graphic card and connection can handle the load of data coming in when connecting to a new sim.

And maybe check how many scripts and prims you are wearing in general. maybe you are just "too heavy" for your own computer.

Thank you so much for your reply.  That helped!     I can now either tp directly first try, or I find sometimes I have to tp to some other sim, then on to the one I want to go to.  But I will definitely take having to get someplace in 2 tp's, then not getting there at all.  Happy Holidays!
