If I restore the game to a previous version, will I lose inventory items, saved outfits, etc...

Question

Short answer, all your inventory is stored on Linden Labs servers, so regardless of which viewer you use or which version or from which computer you log on at, all your stuff will be there.

You'll be pleased to hear that you won't lose any of your inventory, or anything you might have inworld if you uninstall SL and reinstall it, because although we have cache stored on our computers, all the information relating to your avatar is stored on the LL servers.

But I am thinking, because you crashed while trying to open a youtube video, which meant extra drain on your graphics card, you might just need to update your graphics card drivers.  Also clearing your cache won't hurt (just bring up your viewer on your screen, but without logging in, click on "me" "preferences" "general" "clear cache", close the viewer down, wait 20 minutes, then try logging back in again to an empty sim - Furball is a good one.

And please keep this thread up to date; just add more to your original post by editing it (options on top right of your own post), or click on "permalink" bottom left of any post you wish to respond to.

HI there -- frustration abounds I am sure.

 

You might try installing a third party viewer. You didn't say what viewer you were using. That might help. Even giving 1.23 a try might be good as a test. AND while you will not lose your inventory, you WILL lose outfits (the new kind) if you go back to a Viewer 1 based viewer (official or third party) so be prepared for that. 

 

Hope this works out for you.   I am not sure that letting your compture "rest" is helpful *wink* but ya never know.

Graphics cards need updating from time to time, and it's far more simple than it sounds.  All you need to do is go to the manufacturer's website, and there will be an option to install the latest drivers.  Then you just watch and wait while the machine sorts itself out.

Yes, very much so :/

 

The desktop icon says "Second Life Viewer 2" I'd rather not lose my outfits though; I put a lot of time into them, and I don't know about downgrading my viewer... I mean the one I have was working fine before all this...

Click on the main button you use when you open new programs or close down your computer, and you should have a help/search box. Type in "device manager" and it will bring up a list of what components your computer is made up of. Look down the list for "display adaptors" or "display". Click on the icon next to this and it will tell you the type of graphics card you have installed in your machine.

I did that, right clicked the icon that said NVIDIA GeForce 9200, and selected the option for it to update the driver software. When that was done, I tried to launch SL again, and it had a new update, so I let that run, relaunched, and it STILL is giving me the same problem... *HEADDESK*

Thanks for keeping the thread up to date. I'm sorry updating your graphics driver hasn't helped.

Do you always use the same viewer? Are you using Viewer 2? 

Another poster in this thread has suggested you try using another viewer to see if you have the same problems. If you are used to using Viewer 2, I'd recommend you try the approved third party viewer, Firestorm. Otherwise, Phoenix is the one that I use. You can download from this web link: http://www.phoenixviewer.com/downloads.php

See if you still have the same issues when using a different viewer.
