  6. I am seeing no problems with the current SL viewer. I have had no crashes recently, except for a few instances if crash-on-exit. Those are no bother. I have a mesh intensive video set that I used Saturday to make a video. About 6 people there, none crashed in the 2 hour shooting session. (These were using various viewers.) TKR

Google seaarch for radeon drivers Go to the AMD graphics and drkivers software page and follow the instructions.

  16. Welcome to SL. Here are some answers: Killing is only possible in areas set aside for that (damage zone). These are generally role-playing areas. They are indicated by a heart in the navigation bar (upper left). The only effect of being 'killed" is that your avatar is returned to your home point. You are not likely to be in a damage zone unless you look for one. There are no penalties in general, though there could in a particular role-playing game could impose penalties on killing or on being killed.

  18. Sry the compatibilty mode did not help. I followed problems with win7/64 back in 2010-11. Never heard of people running out of memory as easily as you seem to have done. You have probably tried this: 1. Check what loads on start and cut out what you can. 2. Restart windows. 3. Start SL and try it before you start anything else. Use Ctrl + Alt -Del to open Task Manager, then check Physical Memory (under the performance tab). I just checked that load on my system (with no effort to reduce memory load). With SL and 6 broswer windows open, I still have 2.4 GB available on my 6 GB system. I am a little doubful that memory is your problem.
  19. You may not be running SL in the compatibility mode -- Here is a relevant article http://virtualoutworlding.blogspot.com/2010/08/windows-7-64-bit-second-life-no.html As you can see, I was running win7/64 Back in Aug, 2012. I don't think I had more that 4 GB of memory, but I don't know. I do know that Win put SL in a special directory that was reserved for 32 bit software. For me, the installs were (are) automatic, but I gather something can go wrong. I found instructions for handling that condition and gave a link in the article. TKR

  21. To get much help, you will need to give more details about what you did to set up a DJ stream. Meanwhile, here is info on how to play musig on your land: Guide to streaming audio. Shoutcast. PerformancesTKR
  22. Go to the web site of the manufacturer (not microsoft). Be sure your drivers are up to date. The drivers shipped with new machines are usually out of date and cause that message. TKR
  23. I think the most likely thing the bots are doing is creating a report on sims -- checking that the sim is still there and checking the number of people there. The count is something theyy might want to get every hour. This info it made available in reports. TKR
  24. Viewers marked beta will probably not overwite your current viewer. If they are not marked beta, I recommend that you assume that they will overwrite. They may not, and you may get an optfion to install them in a different folder, but don't count on it. You can preserve the old install by copying the current folder to somewhere else and giving it a new name to identify it. I would never install one of these without a good reason to accept potential troubles TKR
