My wife Eve Valentine is creator for TMP and has since a few days the problem that she can't create anything, because the Creation Kit which she got from TMP does not work at all.

3 days ago the Kit stopped working in the beta grid and 4 hours ago the Kit in the normal grid stopped working too. She asked TMP for a new Kit, because she thought that there would be maybe a error in her Kit, but the new Kit has the same behavior.

She asked in the group of the TMP Creators if anyone has the same problem or if anyone knows a solution, but she got no reply at all, so i ask here in the forum if anyone knows what is going on, why can't she create anything anymore.

I don't have a TMP kit so I am not sure how much help I can be but I will give it a go.

Try logging into SL or the Beta Grid using a different Viewer.  It is possible that the problem is the viewer isn't working correctly because of some sort of update either in the viewer code or to LL's server code.

Have your wife wear in SL or the Beta Grid something she had already made for TMP she made a while ago and you know works.  If it also doesn't work then you know there isn't a problem with the TMP kit and is either a viewer problem or a LL server problem.

If it is a script problem make sure you are in an area that allows scripts to run.  Make sure the scripts are set to running.  You may even want to restart the scripts even if they are set to run.

What exactly is the nature of the problem with the TMP Kit.  What is happening when you upload your Wife's creations to SL or the Beta Grid and wear them?  What program or programs is she using to create with?

Hope that helps. :)

The already made clothing is not the problem^^

The Creation Kit for TMP looks like 6 white Boxes which you rez on the ground.

The Creator can then put uploaded textures into these Boxes and can then create clothing (or tattoos) with these Boxes.

And that is the problem, she can "feed" these Boxes with textures, but then she can't use them, if she clicks on them they show no reaction, no menu, nothing,

I don't think there was an update 3 days ago or today. I will ask her to use another viewer to see if that fixes that problem.

Well, yes, scripts work where she creates the clothing, because she has to do this in public sandboxes (Landlords don't like it if their tenants rez 500 to 600 prims, even if its only temporary).

So I can't help but ask -- WHY is her TMP product 500 or 600 prims? I have absolutely gorgeous shoes with TONS of details that are 1 land impact.

 

I suggest (not having anything to do with this issue since supposedly the items were always that OMG heavy) that she rethink her designs a bit.

 

Lately I have been going to many sims and events where I CAN'T EVEN MOVE because of the heavy mesh. This is really getting to be an issue. I have a new computer arriving Monday which should (she says hopefully) "fix" (work around is a better term) this issue. But not everyone wants to spend $2000 simply so they won't crash.

 

Just saying.  

 

I hope you get the issue resolved.

The product is not that heavy, the creation kit plus the other tools which she uses are that heavy and she need to rez it to create the products, when she is done creating she can take the kit and the other stuff back to her inventory^^

As i said, the high prim usage is only temporary, maybe for 1 hour or 2 hours.

Yesterday she tried to create without the boxes, this is possible, but only with rather simple outfits. The Creation Kit allows her to edit the textures (like move or resize), so she can avoid visible seams, without them she need to edit the textures with Photoshop and upload the edited textures and then she can only hope that there are no visible seams. If there are seams she need to repeat that process and every time she has to pay 10 L$ for uploading the edited textures.

Some sandboxes don't allow scripts and some allow scripts but don't allow more than simple scripts.  Have her try another sandbox.

To avoid texture upload fees try the Beta Grid.  Uploads are free and she can develop her product there and when it is perfected some viewers will let you make a copy on your hard drive which you can then upload to SL.  Also there is a product named Second Inventory which will also do this.  I have no idea how TMP kits work so this may or may not be possible.

Well, as i said in my first post, she was in the beta grid when the Creation Kit stopped working (and you have no big choice of a sandbox there because there are only 3 of them usable)

 

The Sandbox which she use in the normal grid has no restriction in scripts (except of course scam and griefing scripts) and on that day when the Creation Kit stopped working she was there creating and then left the Sandbox, then she came back after 3 hours and she couldn't use the Kit anymore. She has also tried several other Sandboxes, nothing helps,

 

She needs the Creation Kit to move and edit the textures on the tmp body, without the Kit she has to create "blind".

Without having a clue what the scripts in the kit do, we can only guess.

 

It's quite possible and also trivial to implement a licensing system that would check and only execute scripts if authorised. It could easily be that the licensing system was offline or that it's not recognizing data from the beta grid.

 

It's simple for a system to determine where it's running, aditi or agni.

 

Further, LL allowed their SSL certificate to lapse on the beta grid the other day, that may have been a factor, who knows.

 

My obvious question now is, what did the folk behind TMP say when they were asked about it? They were asked right?
