  1. Whew ok i think it'd be better if i get My RL Dad too help me with all this, he's the tech savvy member of the Family lol Thanks though for the tips and advice and i can pick through which of the Graphics i'd like and a new power supply and get me Dad too fix it when he comes again next year.
  2. I was looking at a few on Ebuyer but i wasn't really sure which would handle SL, which would handle shadows etc but i'll certainly have a look at the GTS 450, GTX 550 Ti and GTX 460 and see how much each of them was. I was briefly looking at this GT 520 Not sure if it's any good but it was quite cheap lol but then i was going by a old copy of a price guide from a local computer store where i live as i'd have too shop there and have them fit it for me. I'm not really tech savvy. You mentioned a better power source, what would i need for that?
  3. I've been seriously considering upgrading my graphics card for a brand new one, i'm currently using the Nvidia GEForce 8400 512 mb Ram. I'm hoping too find a card that will handle using shadows pretty well without too much lag and just general improvements within SL. I'm limited too how much i could spend on a new graphics card aswell so if possible no more than maybe £80 Being from the UK limits where i can possibly order cards from so cannot use New Egg etc. If you have any tips on which cards would work in my price range i'd be grateful :) p.s: My System Specs are: CPU: AMD Phenom(tm) 9500 Quad-Core Processor (2210.24 MHz) Memory: 3072 MB OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 32-bit Service Pack 1 (Build 7601) Graphics Card Vendor: NVIDIA Corporation Graphics Card: GeForce 8400 GS/PCI/SSE2/3DNOW! Windows Graphics Driver Version: 8.17.0012.8026 OpenGL Version: 3.3.0 libcurl Version: libcurl/7.21.1 OpenSSL/0.9.8q zlib/1.2.5 c-ares/1.7.1 J2C Decoder Version: KDU v6.4.1 Audio Driver Version: FMOD version 3.750000 Qt Webkit Version: 4.7.1 (version number hard-coded) Voice Server Version: Not Connected Built with MSVC version 1600 Thanks kindly Abi xx
  4. I'd manually cleared the cache earlier that morning on this particular time. So i don't think clearing the cache might of helped but if it happens again i'll give that a try. I had thought of maybe trying a different viewer. Has anyone got any experiance with CoolVL Viewer, is it any good?
  5. Recently i've been having this problem when i'm trying too change my hair style that it will place the new style overtop the old one and i cannot for the life of me detach the old hair style without restarting the viewer. This has been happening quite regular and it's getting rather annoying now. Has anyone else had this issue or heard of this before and know a fix. Thanks
  6. Hiya Fennet, Becoming a child avatar for me was more years of watching over child avatars wandering around hair stores, clothing stores, doing hunts and I couldn't help but go awwwww! at them lol. I learnt a little more about child avatars and family RP really from one I met very briefly a long time ago while doing a SL hunt, she was struggling with finding a item and I helped her, after that I kinda asked her a few questions about being a kid avi. Once I got over trying too understand the ickle speak lol I found what she did quite interesting and intriguing. I've since forgotten her name but she's one of the reasons I decided too give it a go, may have taken me a year lol but I got there eventually. Animations I've actually got a full ao bits and pieces I bought from the store owned by daiz Papp, my adult avi has a AO from there so I'd seen some of the kid ao's before. I'd love of course suggestions for posing animations, moment I've got a few I found on Marketplace and I'll maybe buy some from Glitterati too. Even on a adult avi I didn't do a lot, i shopped, hung at beaches, went dancing, shopped some more. I never really was one for exploring, low attention span I got bored easy. I'd love too meet up with you though, I have one friend inworld so far that I've talked too once, I'm finding that a lot of kid avi's seem too be in kinda cliches, not very approachable. You should definitely check out OSE then, it's a elementary school in SL and it seems too be very very popular. Ocean Side Elementary and Hardknock I'm learning are the most popular schools in SL for kids.
  7. When i see the Meeroo's i kinda think of Meercats and just how cute they are, i often wonder if they were moddelled around them lol. One of the main reasons i became a kid avatar is because i wanted a family in SL, i wanted too experiance the kind of family RP that happens, maybe i'm rushing into it but that's me i tend too get a idea and just go with it now matter how quick it is. I'll try and be careful though and do long trial periods, i'm not having much luck though i have too admit, been on 2 trials so far and both seems too not match my online times so might have too try again.
  8. I will do, i dropped by earlier today though it was empty. I'll try again later i did play with the meeroos while i was there, so cute they are. Might have too get some myself when and if i get adopted lol. I've actually enrolled in a school, Oceanside Elemetery, the summer camp though.
  9. Oh thank you for the suggestion Mehta i'll drop on by and have a look around and see what's too do I love those Meeroo's they are so so cute!!
  10. For awhile now i've always been curious about child avatars and family rp in SL so i recently took the plunge and opened a new account too be a child avatar. I have chosen the age i wish too be, i've been shopping and bought a skin, clothing, hair and ao for my avatar all age appropriate i'd think. I've even dropped by MAW and opened a panel too find a family and joined OSE Summer Camp as a way too meet other child avatars. I'm quite a shy person and i don't often approach others first so i guess i'm asking in a round about way is this. What other ways can i meet people in SL that are child avatars, make friends, what things can i do other than go shopping all the time for fun as a child avatar that doesn't have many friends. Thanks kindly in advance for all the help and advice. Abigailee xx
  11. You could try Glitterati, they have some real nice poses and i'm sure i've seen a kids part too them, try Marketplace aswell.
  12. Why i choose too live a virtual life: I have always suffered with my nerves in RL and do not find it easy making friends as i become very nervous, paranoid i'm saying something that sounds really dumb. Then there is the fact i don't particulary like going out in RL, going too the pub, cinema, bowling alley again makes me nervous, panicky. So i use SL as a kind of platform too overcome this, because i am not physically face too face with a person my nerves do not get the better of me, i can relax and enjoy myself.
