Avatar is slow to respond, hardly any control.

Question

  • 0

When you take your fingers off the forward button and you find yourself continuing to fly, do you happen to have gone across a sim border?  If so, this is not unusual behaviour, and is indicative of the time it's taking for all the information from your avatar to transfer from one server to another (the sims being on different servers).  You can help this improve by keeping the number of scripted attachments you wear to a minimum.

It sounds like you have a serious case of lag, and it's probably your Internet connection.  Open your Statistics Bar (CTRL + Shift + 1 ) and take a look at the numbers for FPS, Ping Sim, and Packet Loss that appear at the top of the display.  Under normal conditions, you should have a FPS (Frames Per Second) value of at least 15 to see motion that is as smooth as you might expect on a television set.  Anything smaller than that will mean that your avatr and everything else look like they are moving in molasses or maybe in an old filmstrip.  The Ping Sim parameter is a measure of how long it takes for a signal to get from your computer to SL's servers or vice versa.  If it's under 100 ms, that's normal. If Ping Sim is much more than about 150 ms, your system will appear to respond slowly to commands.  It may actually crash if Ping Sim is high enough.  The Packet Loss factor is a measure of how much information is getting lost between your computer and SL's servers.  Ideally, it should be 0.0%.  In practice, if it's more than a few tenths of a percent, you'll start to see choppy movement and you'll start to have trouble getting things to rez properly.

You can resolve some problems by being sure that you are using a direct cable connection instead of wireless, and then check to be sure that your router is behaving properly.  Reboot it by unplugging it from the power for a few minutes and then plugging in back it again.  You should probably ask your ISP to check the service on your line.  Feel free to send us information as you gather it, too.  You can add information to this question by clicking on the Options link in its upper right corner and selecting EDIT.  Please do not start a new thread.
