  1. This is half true half false. Agreed in the past with XP and previous verion of Windows having a ram disk was worth to use it as a space where to move the browser cache to load faster . Now Games too get the benefit to load files they need quicker and faster from a well written ram disk software. A ram disk now can allow you to load not only the cache faser but aso the files that your game needs as it's shown in this image that is made to explain how a ram disk used in steam community works. you could read more about it here. After all many high end gaming mother boards ar
  2. In this quick guide I'll try to show you how to set up a ram disk for second life. I hope that this helps those who are telling me that now rezzing in world is somehow slow. This guide supposes that your pc has enough ram to do it. Remember that now windows 10 can use almost 3GB ram so you need at least 8GB ram even better a system with 16GB ram ( that is now the standard for most pc's of middle range).The size of the ram disk for SL and maybe cache of your browser( this is another chapter not discussed here) is just 2GB more and less. I also recommend you to disable windows automatic up
  3. Yes thanks Whirly and Oz. Today I finally found time to install and test the fix. It seems working no more psychedelic-allucinated screen when I use Quit button. No need to wait for a fix. I belive next version will include this fix too. At least now I can still make it work as I used to and make of it also a portable app with custom cache and settings path to run from other disk/s.
  4. Thanks Whirly I'll take a look at it. I am going to test your shortcut too as soon as I get at home. Wish I never put this damn 1903. Got to see how to download an older version or even better use a LTSB much more stable and reliable (which I often used for tests but I don't want to use on a pc to avoid to activate it with some sith powers :P) I found another kind of workaround too for thos of you who have installed it and want to wait for a fix. What I do is instead of X button to exit use the Task manager so ctrl shift esc and manually terminate the prcess SL either it would
  5. After some changes in my pc I had to install again windows. I thought to use windows 10 last downloadable vesion which is the famous may update 1903. In the past after a few SP you would have expected a real stable system. With Windows 10 it's not like this anymore. For sure I can tell you That during my tests for pc fixing I installed and run a windows 10 1803 and it was running SL just fine. Now with windows 10 1903 anytime I open the sl viewer if I close it using the X button at the top right corner of the viewer the whole windows Sistem becomes depixelated of all colors and I bar
  6. Probably people here think I was born yesterday or that I can't read stats or use bencharks programs. I have been assembling pc's for years and always made them work at top.Probably they think I am allucinated or on crack. Not at all. As promised I made more tests. I tried old viewer I also tried to import some files or settings from old viewer to the new ( with the needed modifies) no big result. But when I log again in the viewer version I said above I keep getting huge , monstrous difference in FPS. Here is my last test anybody can repeat this. Facts not words here is how to
  7. Thanks for letting us know the updates from lab toughts about fps. 10 FPs I think is really low to say it's liveable (wonder why then if I go reading blogs of gamers pcand games they all care to have at least 60 fps to enjoy it). But if lindens say so it explains a lot. From old school viewers I have always been known 25 fps is the minimum to have a decent movement . I know of people who brag to have 2-5 fps and yet they pretend to do stuff like competitions in SL but I mostly think they do to scoff others" hey I kill you even if I am a zombie".Most of the fps I saw were probably a glitch but
  8. Yes thanks for pointing tat out I remember in the past too fingering with settings there were some to not touch. Today I installed again the whole viewer again cleaning anything included registry. I checked those boxes for basic shaders too.Nothing changed with last settings if I hang out alone I have a range of 100-120 FPS. Agreed good to hangout. But if I move to places where they even do a party with less than 20-30people I drop down to 20 fps or lower which is annoying cause under 25 fps you get that moonwalk feeling (of course keeping settings low). With the oldest viewer (S
  9. not sure if that value is there by default in new viewers or I have accidentally changed it. I use to delete all my settings folder before any new installation. But it was worth a try so I logged in using a bandwidth once 1000 and once again lowered to 800 even with a bandwidth below 1000 no change. I would sure see differences( and I saw it only if I force the login in the oldest version I said above in the past doing tests) no matter what settings you'd use.

  11. cpu i7 7770k Gpu nvidia gtx 1060 (with nvidia drivers always updated to newest version) Using windows 7 and ubuntu 18.10. I used Sl both way classic installation and also on a Ram disk moving all on custom paths nothing to helps it.All the newer versions from that one keeps making me slower.That's why I supposed maybe they no longer suport direct x11 or maybe not as good as in the past.
  12. Hello. I have been using second life viewer for years. Lately I notice that it's incredibly slow even if I use an high-end pc. In detail I can tell you that the last good viewer I used was the version "Second_Life_5_0_6_326593_i686". The next updates had as result a consistent cut off of fps ( about 3X less fps than the fps I got with the viewer version I mentioned above). I've been waiting since August 2017 for a better viewer or something that run smooth like the version Second_Life_5_0_6_326593_i686,I opened a Jira, but nothing. What is still strange is that looking in the w
  13. Reading of baking on mesh it leaves in my mind some excitement about possbilities but also many many doubts. If i understand well from all the examples the mesh should be mod to use this feature . I also saw the "workaround" in mp that already allows somethin similar to bake on mesh even on no mod meshes. I have a proposal but surely (even if from my point of view it seems more efficient) I doubt it would happen to be made. I think that to avoid onion built meshes we just need a new featture that allows us something that any 3d software already does: adding more layers (with d
  14. Yes I confirm the page where it's showed the upload mesh quiz is working again It shows my stats so It started working again. It seems that was their server error and not that they wanted us to make the test again ( useless in that case:P). it seems fixed, let's hope it stays so, before writing the this I've been waiting a few hours, tested a couple of minutes ago too and it's still all fine.
  15. It al depends by the fact that SL has backface culling always active. Lindenlab could add an option to turn it off in case you need. Due to this the polycon is seen only on one side ( the one where the normal is) the other side is seen as transparent. If for instance you wear an oldbie skirt made by the classic sl templates you could see that skirt being ttransparent too. After all also that skirt is a mesh we just applied our own layers to it and it didn't have folded edges. The folding edges I do it too helps in many cases. In the specific case of skirts, due to animations and stuff rather
