  1. This behavior is probably a result of an unauthorized modification of DLL files associated with graphics drivers or browsers. A complete reinstallation of my operating system/drivers/applications yielded unadulterated rezzing...This is yet another reason NOT to surf from a User Account with Administration privileges.
  2. Went to Club Rez and turned up the magnification on my Resource Monitor and reset the Registry hack to Default. My FPS dropped to ~ 12 with SL. Only two of the CPU's are even doing 40% and the Graphics Card is only putting out, nominally. Half of my CPUs are "parked". 25% of Physical memory is used. Disk I/O is ~ 25%. Network load is ~ 100kbs/sec down on a ~5 meg connection. Every Viewer setting is maxed out except AA which is set at 8.
  3. OS Name Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate Version 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601 OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation System Manufacturer Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. System Model GA-990FXA-UD3 System Type x64-based PC Processor AMD FX-8120 Eight-Core Processor, 3100 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s) Adapter Description AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 8.00 GB Latest Java, OpenGL, DirectX Second Life 3.3.2 (258114) May 28 2012 06:48:21 (Second Life Release) this is in the "I love the 80's" club, with about 10-20 dancers. My avi is sitting. After noticing that my Basic FPS were only ~ 15, and the Physics FPS were ~45, Firestorm Basic ~20-25, Physics ~ 45 Catnip Basic ~ 22, Physics ~45 Did some registry modifications. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc938581.aspx Pulled up Performance Monitor and all 8 cores were kicking. Went to a snowy mountianside in Azere, with a wavy ocean behind it. Basic FPS were ~75
  4. Let me sign off on this note... What you are seeing from all of these metrics (statistics) are averages. You've noticed a tradeoff between the quality of the rendering and the number of FPS(frames per second). More quality, less FPS. If you were able to look at all of the REAL TIME metrics for the graphics card, and not the AVERAGES, it would appear to be working a lot harder than the AVERAGES would indicate. Seems like you are running Windows XP 32 bit, which is over a 10 year old operating system. There must be bottlenecks there. Finding them and making the adjustments in the operating system is a huge task. To find them, try typing in MMC(Microsoft Management Console) at the RUN command box. Tune the hard drive(s), tune the CPU(s), tune RAM. "The only significant difference appears to be they are in Win7 - 64 bit." The Serenity Prayer God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
  5. Got done with the people in Online-Chat-Help, and we went to a protected area, to view the avatar. They said that my Avatar looked normal, yet from my view, the torso was pink. They had me load the Developers Menu, and we tried a retest of both Male and Femal Avatars and they both had the same pinkish chests. This was reported to the SL people officially, and they're response will follow.
  6. Here's one with Basic Shaders <unchecked>. The Avatar rezzs normally without clothes on; pants work; no luck with shirt, even after reboot. My comuter is an AMD FX 3120 (8cores) 8 gigs corsiar DDR3 Raedeon 6850 1 gig GDR5 SSD 120 megs w/ SL client SATA 2 hard drive 1.5 terabytes, SecondLifeCache Windows and drivers all updated. latest SL beta running.
  7. This same thing happened to me. Not sure if its the latest Beta Viewer or not. My avatar renders correctly, only with pants on. If I put a shirt on the chest goes pink. This is with Basic Shader <unchecked>.
  8. Had to disable Basic Shaders also. AMD processor and Graphics card. My avatars were not rezzing skins correctly.
  9. My Basic Shaders had to be disabled, in order for my skins to render correctly. This site should be no problem for my box. AMD FX 3120 (8 cores) 8 gigs Corsair DDR3 RAM Radeon HD 6850 w/ 1 gig DDR5 (SL recommends AMD graphics) 120 gig SSD with SL client 1.5 Terabyte SATA2 with SecondLifeCache renamed to SecondLifeCache1a The SL client seems to recognize that the Avatar is not rendering correctly since it seems to Auto-Rebake, after the cache is cleared and the Avatar is downloaded fresh. I've been going crazy for the past two weeks thinking that this was "socially engineered". If this is a "known issue", then an error message should display, and an error report should be generated that can be cross referenced in the Knowledge Base, and with technical support. Given that Basic Shaders are enabled by default, how are newbies supposed to find an article in the Knowledge Base that tells them, not to press the panic button, but to instead, disable Basic Shaders?
  10. Solved! Appartently this is a "known issue" that nobody knew about...lol! Try Preferences>Graphics and then <uncheck> Basic Shaders. http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Your-Avatar/My-Avatar-is-two-colors-top-pink-color-and-bottom-tan-Can-t-buy/td-p/1554453
  11. When this happened before, a stock-SL Avatar would rez normally. When this started...again...argh!...my avatar would rez correctly, with "photorealistic skin", the pants would attach, however the shirt(s) would turn the torso pink. While my journey for an answer to different clothing/avatar designers shops proceeded with my pants on only, my torso turned pink and the "photorealistic" texture of the legs disappeared. So whatever is happening to my experience at SL, it is occuring while I'm walking around trying to solve my probs. There doesn't appear to be an option that hides my online status. Only one that stops me from getting messages about their comings and goings. "Will the last person out alive, please turn out the lights" (Douglas Adams)...
  12. Now your starting to ask things like: How to place more content that is stored on the hard drive into System and Graphics RAM. Here's a fun one, about optimizing your Memory Usage, I haven't seen this benchmarked. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc938581.aspx Remember to create a restore point and backup the registry BEFORE doing ANY editing.
  13. If the SL client has been cleared and reinstalled, then try reinstalling Internet Explorer, a source of many Windows problems.
  14. Try Clearing the Cache BEFORE logging in. This will allow all of the Avatar specific files to be redownloaded from the SL server. Bring up the Second Life loggin screen Go to the upper left hand corner <click> Me <click> Advanced <click> Clear Cache Changing this file, by renaming, could help also.
  15. If your trying to boost the FPS, and the hardware is under utilized, then its probably a software issue. Try reinstalling IE9.
