No. The default for high graphics is ALM off on Fs and on on the SL Viewer. I did another quick test, Logged on with the SL viewer and switched to high graphics. Fps I got was around 33. Then I logged on to exactly the same scne with Fs, switched to high graphics and switched ALM on. Fps: around 35, nly marginally faster. That's on a Windows computer though. It's quite possible Firestorm is more Mac friendly than the SL viewer. I've never noticed any significant fps difference between the two viewers on my Mac either but it's on wireless so it may be that it's masked by the slower connection. well mine is both on by default. i just downloaded both of them on a fresh computer days ago and never switch my alm since their already ON. anyways, i hope the next fs release wont be as problematic as the latest official viewer (on my system).

In Firestorm on high graphic setting with shadows off on 2560x1440 resolution, i am getting the lowest of 18-20 fps on an "scullty/mesh overloaded" sim and 30-80fps on open field sim like a low traffic blake sea airport. Now on the latest Official Viewer my fps is from the lowest of 8 to thhe highest 16 in any sim. i went to place where i am usually getting 30-70fps and voila i have 16fps. That's a lot of difference but you should note that "High" in the official viewer is quite a bit higher than it is in Firestorm. The main difference is that ALM is switched on by default in the official viewer and off in Firestorm. Edit: I just did a quick test in Firestorm. With default high I got 51 fps, tweaking the settings to emulate the SL Viewer high graphics reduced fps to 29. It's all about whether ALM is on or off. hmmm no, both of the settings i tried on official and fs has its alm on and i think both in official and fs viewer has alm on by default on high setting. Maybe you are refering to the "medium-high" or "semi-high" graphics which by default alm is off on both viewer. Also, even if i turn my alm off on the latest official viewer release, im still getting the maximum frame rate of 16.
  5. Yesterday I downloaded and tried the latest official viewer to experience the jelly doll feature. My main stream viewer is firestorm since i started wearing mesh head because apparently v3 has some bugs with the mesh head brand that im using or the other way around. I'm on iMac 5k with i7, 32 gb ram and 4g vcard. In Firestorm on high graphic setting with shadows off on 2560x1440 resolution, i am getting the lowest of 18-20 fps on an "scullty/mesh overloaded" sim and 30-80fps on open field sim like a low traffic blake sea airport. Now on the latest Official Viewer my fps is from the lowest of 8 to thhe highest 16 in any sim. i went to place where i am usually getting 30-70fps and voila i have 16fps. Then i went to a busy club with the 80k ARC baseline setting on high graphics with my default screen resolution which is 2560x1440 and as soon as i tped there i felt alone on 8 fps. Yes, 8fps with every single avi on solid color or the jelly doll but it looks more like a plastic doll like the green plastic soldier toy. I kept on playing with my settings and also saved the default 80k baseline to unlimited and still i have the below decent fps. I tried stayinng much longer thinking that i might have an empty cache and gathering textures is making my fps dropped. After that i returned to Firestorm and it works like how it should be but i am a bit worried for the next version or update of Firestorm that i might get the same problem on my frame rate in the Official viewer.

Exactly! it is like it doesnt mean that you have dslr cam you already a photographer or even if you know photoshop skills it doesnt mean that you are a graphic artist. So if you throw your food to the fire like Gordon Ramsay you are really some kind of a f&^%g cook .

Even if the avatar creator says they'll have Bento-capable version upgrades, there's no way to test the product. Really, a responsible mesh avatar creator would take their products off market until Bento is up and running. (But all evidence suggests "responsible mesh avatar creator" is a contradiction in terms.) There is a thing called *free update* and Maitreya is been doing that for their Lara mesh body which is now on version 3.5 . I Have tons of normal size mesh clothing from few years back and fitmesh only compatible with the system avatar that are now mostly useless or incompatible with my mesh body. New features and stuffs that goes to full realesed in sl are unpredictable . Why would you refrain your self from doing things that you want to do on the time that you want to do it? It is like i will buy the latest computer processon or vcard if i wanted to and will not perpetually wait for the next generation hardwares that may come every 18 months.

  12. SL photography is just clicking the "camera" button on your viewer. "Editing within the viewer" is like customizing your windlight setting and local lighting before taking a snapshot. You can not edit a snapshot within the viewer so you still need to save your photos into your hard drive and edit it in photoshop and the likes. There are tons of SL photography and windlight setting tutorial blogs and youtube videos that you can google.
  13. the best shopping place in this mesh body and mesh head generation are the likes of UBER monthly event and believe me you will wish your shopping buddy to crash or stay log off for you to have less competition in tping to the over crowded place. If you and your shopping buddy or buddies are fortunate to get into those kind of shopping events... you will wish everybody will disappear or just crash for you to have a comfortable demo testing. I am not exagerating lols! So the best thing to do if you just want company while shopping is join the groups of your mesh body/head brand or fave shops and group chat while shopping . it's more helpful and fun. If you are wearing Maitreya's Lara body, join the Lara and friends group inworld.
  14. Are you wearing a mesh head or you are still on system head with that Danika skin? Have you tried changing the neck size *in your maitreya Lara hud? I started wearing Lara with my old Redgrave skin on a system head avatar that i manually blend the preset skin tone of Lara to my redgrave skin since my skin doesnt have applier for Lara but i managed the blending but not perfect Also, the neck size on Lara's hud made the neck a bit more seemless . Now i am wearing a Lelutka head with the Lara body applied with Itgirls skin on both head and body and they look seemless but again not perfect specially when you micro zoom the neck part but still decent and unnoticable at all.
  15. Hi! Where can I find a blog or much better video tutorial for beginners in making Lelutka's mesh head makeup from texturing to making hud applier as well? I've been googling but only found reviews and more reviews about the head ;) The Lelutka's developer's makeup kit has a manual for making the applier inworld. I am looking for the procedure in texture the uv, correct file sizes, etc.
  16. The head is too big and not proportion if it is an adult body. It looks like a 6-8 year old kid. If you want it to be proportion, stay away from numbers and "ruler" measurements. Those only works on a 50mm lense camera view. Always depend on your eyes when making shape. What i do is after i think i'm contented with the shape i made in "edit mode" i wear several types AO's and it makes alot of difference. You'll end up doing adjustments and adjustments and adjustments until you are fully satified with the body (in motion/ AO). Try adjusting only the head, then wear clothings, and hair then put her in action until you see some flaws. Another one is the *Body width. If you dont want to adjust the head or maybe the head is already perfect size for fitmesh hair then go make your body wider. Other think body width will make your avi look fat or plus size if you slide it up but it's actually like the partner of height. Whenever i change my height , there is no way i wouldn't touch the Body width sliders.
  17. The Body Co. has asian type skin named Ylang-Ylang (the one in my profile picture). I also think but not so sure they have latest asian skin in their ever complicated store named TheSkin which you can find at TheShops where they sell mesh bodies and heads also known as TheMeshProject .... /faint

  19. visit their sim. i go there when im bored. i ride the horse and play with the dogs hehe
  20. i think it depends on your purpose. If you want the "look" then get the wearable but if you like the simulation (physics, gear, etc) get the one that you need to rezz on the ground. I've seen a nice bicycle and and also tried the demo it was on a nice rural deserty looking sim i forgot the name. It has gas station, a diner , bicycle and vehicle store. the sim's name was like "route something something" or "highway something something" lol sorry i really cant remeber!
  21. wear your underwear and take off prim pubes especially when you are on mini skirt...
