Texture not loading when script changes it (Solved)

Question

Posted (edited)

After a good hour or two of fiddling with a script, I've gotten it to switch between 3 textures (the first and last one being the same texture so it goes back to normal) on a random interval. However, every time it switches the texture to the new ones, it goes blurry like it isn't loading.

Is there something wrong with maybe my area having too many textures, or is it because the texture is too large and can't load when it switches very fast? This is on a mesh object as well. I've tried slowing the time it takes to switch textures in the script so maybe it could have some time to load, but it doesn't seem to help.

Have you tried loading both textures onto a couple of hidden prim faces on the object, underside or maybe inside it?   That way, they are already "preloaded" and always known to the graphics card.  That's a standard trick for switching textures in slide projectors.

When I have used my own texture change script in the past I had no loading issues (this with a 1024 texture for a complete piece of furniture).  It could certainly BE your area so testing in someplace very calm (maybe at 2000 meters also) would be good.  I see Rolig has commented so maybe she has some techie help for you. Also another test would be to have a friend come over where you HAVE been testing and see if itis blurry for THEM also. 

 

Editing after reading Rolig's comment (which I knew but have never used :D).  My items didn't use that trick. Still no issues. My download is 27 mbps.

Thank you, I moved to a better area and hid the textures in a smaller hidden part. Works perfectly, glad to have this knowledge for the future. 🙂
