Question

Hello dear fellow SL members,

Regular I have this: when my avatar flies up, she gets stuck and keeps flying up. At the same time camera controls and top screen menu (like Advanced, Develop etc) are unable to use. Only thing I can do is relog. But, as you can guess, as soon as I try to fly I get stuck again. I tried /99 stop but that doesn't work. How do I solve this problem? Thank you in advance for your answer/help 🙂 Zia Branner

This sounds like "rubber banding", even though I haven't heard of that happening when flying straight up.  Normally you see it when your avatar is walking.

It's a symptom of a communication problem between the SL servers and your computer (or, if it occurs when you are trying to cross a region boundary, between the two region servers).

Do the usual things to check for a connection issue:

  • If your internet provider is a wireless company, or satellite internet, switch to an ISP that offers a fiber optic or DSL connection.
  • If you are using wifi to connect between your computer and your router, use an ethernet cable instead.
  • Turn off your router/internet modem, wait a minute, then turn it back on and let it reboot.
  • Try using the Google Public DNS servers instead of the ones provided by your ISP.  https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/
