  1. Like I said I can't really go above £350 that's my limit so saving another £100 isn't a option as I'm not the one paying for the PC. Well I obviously have a pc now but it's like 7 years old and it would work out much cheaper to buy a brand new one as the HD is making funny whiring sounds from time to time. My DVD drive/burner don't work at all, mother board is getting on etc etc so buying a new one would work better. That one with the 7750 looks not bad I'll add that to the list of suggestions and see what we end up choosing. Quick question though, the Radeon HD6670 are you saying you can get shadows to work? Like I say I don't want shadows on 24/7 just for taking pictures and stuff then I'd turn them off.
  2. Ok so had another little look on Ebay and found this, less Ram but still in my price range Is the Graphics Card any better? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AMD-3-6Ghz-Dual-Core-Gaming-Pc-Computer-500Gb-4Gb-Nvidia-GTX-650Ti-1Gb-Galaxy-/140962012015?pt=UK_Computing_DesktopPCs&hash=item20d1fd9b6f
  3. Hi folks, So after some serious thought I decided to look into buying a new PC but I'm looking for one that can run SL really well with shadows on. Shadows though don't need to be on 24/7 I just want to use them for photography purposes. I've been looking at a few pc's on Ebay but I'm really not sure what I'm looking for. I'm also from England so the websites seem to be limited for me to choose from, hence me looking on Ebay. I did find one PC I liked the look of was wondering if this would work well on SL with Shadows?? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FAST-QUAD-CORE-Gaming-PC-8GB-1TB-RADEON-HD6670-2GB-Desktop-Computer-AMD-/321127744002?pt=UK_Computing_DesktopPCs&hash=item4ac4b48202 I'm trying to keep to a budget of £300 - £350 if I can help it.
  4. Well i'm trying to stay to the right path, I'm currently on trial now at MAW so that's a good step up Oh where are these residential areas, are they like family homes where kids live? That sounds interesting Ok HardKnock I'll look it up but like I said limited budget so if It's expensive I can't go. Thanks for the tips on role-play locations I'll look them up as well as the clubs! Thanks and feel free to shoot me a IM too, always happy to make new friends
  5. Never really learnt how to DJ but I'll look into that thanks! Ahh I never really got the hang of creating things, I had a clothing store briefly back in 2008 but never really was very good at it lol. The only thing I was any good at was doing pictures, profile pictures and stuff. I used to work at a studio as a photographer. I enjoyed that, maybe I could look into doing that but from the kids side. Thanks Marigold, I never thought to think of it that way lol. I'll try and remember what interested me when I was 6, it was a few years ago
  6. Oh that's not so bad! I'll look into Willowdale then, I should be able to afford that I'll look up the vortex and use the keywords too so thanks for that. Just a curious question but are there like any jobs in SL that a child avatar can do, I know there are tons for a adult lol but I was wondering about kids.
  7. I'll look into those places then Marigold so thanks for the help. Maybe I will come to regret it one day lol but only time will tell, I'll give it a try and I'm not really looking to walk around non child friendly sims. The only adult places I go to would be hair stores, like Truth or Magika etc. So join a school, ok I'll look into that. Do you know if they cost? or any free ones/cheap ones because I'm on a pretty low budget being that I'm currently unemployed in RL. So I can't really afford to be putting money into SL very often. Advice answers: 1. Well I wouldn't do that anyway, I saw some do it at MAW and it made me cringe, that's not adorable it's just annoying. Not cute whatsover. 2. Clothing well currently I have stuff from Larnia, Aura's Foursquare and a bunch of other kid clothing stores, I looked in search for some and found those. Plus discovered some hunts on so did those too. 3.Skin, well my skin is from Mynerva one of the group gift ones. The child avi one so no make up or anything lol. 4. I'll keep that in mind, to be honest I'm not really being totally IC at the moment I guess I'm just going with the flow, doing normal things. I haven't really role-played anything yet.
  8. Hi all! I was hoping to maybe get a little advice from the child residents that hang around the forums. I've recently turned this avatar into a child one, I'm role-playing as a 6 year old female child but I have no real clue what I should be doing lol. I've done the usual: gone shopping got the right clothes, shape, skins etc. Made a panel at MAW but heard nothing yet. What other things are there to do as a child avatar? The reason I did decide to do this was because I'm interested in the whole family style RP, i.e baths, bedtime, story's, movies, tv, mealtimes etc but so far I haven't really done any of this yet while I wait to be adopted. So any guidance, info would be greatly appriciated. Thanks!
  9. Ok I'll try switching to using the offical viewer when I'm not doing hunts as that's mainly why I used Firestorm, for the area search tool lol.
  10. lol I know my card is very old but I can't afford a new one right now. I'm looking into upgrading once I start working again. My internet is through Virginmedia. I'm in the UK and I run on a 4mb speed which I checked on Speedtest and I cannot get higher than that (did check with company) the area I live in has no cables underground and they don't plan to add any soon, so I'm stuck with it down my phoneline. I just did the ping test from where I am in the UK to San Fransisco and it pinged at: O% Packet Loss 482 ms Ping 33 ms Jitter I have no clue what all that means lol, so is that good or bad? Oh my interet is connected through a cable as my pc doesn't have a wifi connection. So I use ASDL.
  11. Hi guys I'm hoping I can get a little help here, I'm running a rather old pc yes but it was working really well on Second Life until recently, now sometimes I'll get a sudden burst of lag while trying to cam around or trying to move. I don't really understand it as it can happen in what I'd imagine are low lag areas. My PC Specs are this!: CPU: AMD Phenom(tm) 9500 Quad-Core Processor (2210.23 MHz) Memory: 3072 MB OS Version: Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 3 (Build 2600) Graphics Card Vendor: NVIDIA Corporation Graphics Card: GeForce 8400 GS/PCIe/SSE2/3DNOW! Windows Graphics Driver Version: 6.14.0013.0142 OpenGL Version: 3.3.0 I've considered installing a old firestorm viewer but then I have problems with trying to teleport. I'd really appriciate any help here. Thanks!
