  1. Hello everyone. Now I know what your thinking: "Well of course there's going to be lag with that many avatars, it's common sense!" Well it isn't so much of asking how to fix it (sorta) but why does it do it. For me, I was in a pretty big place with that many Avis and I was stun my lappy was still pushing double digits! (20-27fps) So everything was working beautifully but what weirded me out was that though everything was smooth and there was no rubber band effect, I was still walking like I was in cement. I would've been perfectly fine knowing that my viewer was experiencing 4fps and
  2. This is a natural thing that occurs with almost anything in life (if not, everything). If you're finding yourself constantly performing a hobby (logging into SL) and being bored, cut back. You don't have to quit cold turkey! There are other games (When you said "I don't want to play silly games", I'm not sure if you meant in SL or games in general) which you can download, play, and immerse yourself into.I have several different MMORPG's and games I play other than SL so if I get bored, I cut back so that when I return, I feel kinda refreshed. If that's not your forte, just find an RL h
  3. A few of my friends told me that these two variables can boost performance by quickening render speeds and decrease lag. Some tell me (including a Torley tutorial) to set my bandwidth to 10k while others tell me 1.5k and anything over that number is a waste of bandwidth. Some tell me to keep my cache at 512 while others tell me to max it out. I have no clue what either variable does other than cache stores the data and bandwidth streams the data to your computer but correct me if I'm wrong. So how do I determine on what numbers to set it on?
  4. Thank you so much! It's great they're so similar! Does the 2GB have the advantage over the 1GB of 750 even though it's a slightly better model?

I can't see to find out
  6. Which specific details would you care to know? I would be glad to provide a clearer image. Sorry if I tend to type my questions in broad strokes. Also, thank you for showing me that site game debate! That site really does help alot (even though I can't really understand the specific specs for comparison) but it does give me a general idea.

  9. Sorry if I seemed I was stating two questions but I didn't intend to do so. I just want to know if that specific graphics card will run at least mid settings at places (such as clubs for example) with 20 people. That's all. If you need more info, I'll gladly try to find and give it
  10. I agree, it is a terrific idea...if I had the talent. At the moment, I can only paint cartoon/anime pics so maybe if I gain the talent I would TOTALLY do that so thank you so much for the suggestion @Dres: haha thanks! Oh! I infringe because I don't have the creativity to create such artwork so I just use my technique of what I have of it and copy premade pictures IRL. I'm trying my best to gain better experience and hope to bring that into SL but I just needed to know this for future use
  11. Thank you everyone for taking the time to post on this thread. So this raises up a few more questions that I thought up of. One being what are examples of public domain pictures and the other is more on the copy right issue of things. I constantly see icons and symbols from major companies, as someone stated, Disney. I can go to the market place and find several shirts with Mickey Mouse on them. Same thing with hello kitty or spongebob squarepants. I see shirts or toys from the exact same picture I can located through google images and still these merchants are able to sell their product regar
  12. I am buying a new laptop in fact! :matte-motes-big-grin: Here are the specs of the laptop I plan on purchasing: OPERATING SYSTEM Windows® 7 Home Premium 64-bit, English HARD DRIVE 750GB SATA 3Gb/s (7,200 RPM) VIDEO CARD NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 750M with 1GB GDDR5 PROCESSOR 4th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-4700MQ processor (6MB Cache, up to 3.4GHz) MEMORY 8GB Dual Channel DDR3L at 1600MHz Also, if it helps, here's my info from Speedtest.net: PING: 32ms Download Speed: 11:08 Mps Upload Speed: 1.43 mps If ya need any more
  13. At the moment I have a GeForce GT 525M and was running SL and thought it was running...OKAY. I usually hit about 20 fps when theres a few people but when it comes to large crowds or even just a few people dancing within a semi-large area, those numbers drop to 4 FPS. I would like to keep a high and stable FPS without any jerkyness to it such as stated before (20 fps or even higher would be great) in those larger regions or with alot of people. So which graphics card number would be best for it? I believe I heard the number in the 10's place is the horse power and I'm guessing I'm not all that
  14. So, I was thinking of creating a painting business where customers had the ability to choose the EXACT image of what they want (through google or any other search engine) and I try to copy that image and make it into a painted version of that image. I mean it's not totally copying and pasting that image and plastering my signature on it but I'm taking my time to actually mimic the look so I'm not sure if that's theft or not. If it's nessasary, I will TOTALLY 100% give all credit to the original artist, but I would also want my Lindens for my work as well. If you could, also post any informatio
  15. So as I understand, SL is a fickle sort when it comes to using wireless internet. Is there a way in which I can get just as good connection as a wired one? I don't lag terribly (only in huge areas with many avatars but that's natural) but I would like to hit a higher fps. I usually get around 15-25 but I can hit up to 47 if I''m REALLY lucky and it looks so beautiful! So what can I do to make my average fps high as well? Thank you!
