  1. Issue has been resolved by making the following changes in references > Graphics > Hardware: - Turned off Vertex Buffer Objects - Lowered texture memory slider from 256 MB to 192 MB (actual video RAM is 256 MB) All works fine now - I don't really want to go testing which of the changes worked.
  2. The Internet connection is most certainly not at fault. Another laptop on the very same router and the very same wi fi has no crashes. Also, I get *crashes* not *disconnections*. I know what a disconnection looks like - everything goes black and white and "you have been logged out of second life". I got these when my Internet connection was interrupted or when the PC locked up for a few min. Never got any of these in the last few months. What I get now is crashes - the viewer window disappears and the crash logger starts. I doubt it could be linked to the connection at all, though I will try a test run with a LAN wire.
  3. Thanks! Responding on several points: - I do use wi-fi, and can't realistically route a wire from the router (which is new) to the laptop. The other laptop, where the issue does not happen, was also on wi-fi. However there IS a known issue with wi-fi on this particular machine being slow (I tried to watch movies over Windows file sharing from a server on the very same WiFi router). As soon as I can, which may be a few days, I will do a test run on a LAN wire (that location is not private enough for normal SL use). - Speeds on speedtest.net are usually approx 3.5 MB/s down, 0.3 MB/s up. This speed can not be improved (without moving house). - I do know that the hardware is on the lower end, and am used to around 12-14 fps on lowest graphic settings, falling under 10 in busy places. But low fps is one thing, crashes are another. Frequent crashes do make the experience "significantly worse than usual" (usual meaning before SSA). - I do know Linux on a reasonable level, but I am really not looking forward to tweakng proprietary drivers on it. My stationary media PC runs Linux (Debian), and I now need to upgrade it - I chose an Intel CPU (with built-in GPU) mainly because all drivers for it are open source and built into the distro. But for SL, I have what I have. So Linux on this machine would be a last resort.
  4. Hello, I have started getting regular crashes in busy places. This happens with both stock SL and Catznip, and started around the time Server Side Appearance was deployed (I did get some crashed before but much more rarely). Crashes seem to be hardware related, as another laptop with the same software runs fine. The affected PC is a 2006 laptop. It should NOT have overheating issues as it was taken apart for cleaning recently and also has a good fan system under it. It is a Dell Latitude D620 with the NVidia NVS 110M chipset. It runs Windows XP. I have to use the drivers provided by Dell, as the ones from NVidia (selected for this specific chipset) say that they can not find supported hardware, and fail to install. In the download notes it does say Dell notebooks are not supported. So I don't have the option of a driver update, unless perhaps I use Windows 7 or 8 instead. (Or Linux, but I think there is voice trouble and no video support under Linux?) I'd prefer to have things running in XP. Are there any changes that I can make to SL settings or Windows settings that could possibly tackle the crashes? Thanks!

  6. Hello, I am renting a parcel. I do have access to all settings. I am running out of prims and I am not sure what is hogging so many prims - by my own calculations I should still have some left. In "About land" I can only get a list of owners - not very useful, I own nearly everything on the parcel. But I probably have some hoggers I do not realize I have. Is there any way to view a list of objects on th eparcel and how many prims they use? Thanks!
  7. I have never mentioned force. In fact I never force (even RP force) anyone to become my slave. RP (including RLV) force is fine for the occasional bondage/sex play, but when we talk about ownership, i want it offered willingly on their knees, or not at all. Some such slaves are also willing to earn for their owner, and I see it as the responsibility of the owner to find training for such slaves and provide other conditions. Money or not, we're talking patriarchal slavery in SL really - with the owner ruling and ensuring the slaves' needs are met, and the slaves in turn serving faithfully. Chattel slavery, where the owner has no responsibility, is often mentioned because it is a sexy concept for many people, but appears to be pure RP. End result: no TOS violation, Willing L$ transactions are not violations of the TOS, even in context of relationships that would not be legal RL. Otherwise, SL prostitution would break the TOS.
  8. They roleplay as slaves but they need some more skill in sexy writing of emotes. That's what escorts get paid for - you can find a free av to poseball screw anywhere, but good escorts enhance the feeling by emoting well. And this is an acquired skill. I know something about writing myself, but I am not very experienced as a trainer for others. And some slaves are quite eager to learn.
  9. Hello, Some slavegirls need training in giving sexual pleasure, much of it with emotes. The kind of stuff escorts normally do - in fact, training in other parts of escorting would be welcome too, so the slave could be made to earn for her owner. Would there be places where a girl can be placed for such training? It does not have to be a "slave" place proper, it can be an escort club that trains its employees, I can make her collar invisible if necessary. I tend to deal with willing slaves so they can be trusted with being employees and yet submitting (and handing over what they earn).
  10. I find that the current OpenCollar Updater (v 3.800) does not work at all for me. It tells me to open a web page to select a bundle. Then the page times out. Is there hope it will be fixed? Also, the update process is not very friendly for newbies. I am ok with it but I often have newbie slaves. And I need features (Spy, Bell, Badwords) that are only available from an update, not from stock collars. I keep a basic transferrable collar with the features, but it is ugly! Is it possible to get collars with designs, and also the invisible "chip" version, that would be transferrable?
  11. Hello, I have OpenCollar troubles again, with a different sub (this time, a girl). Her collar just does not show a relay menu. She had a different relay that rfailed, and I wanted to control her relay anyway - so she removed the other relay. hen we tried taking collar off and on, we tried relogging.. still, no relay menu! The collar is "celtic knot", recently acquired in "OC temple". How can we fix this?
  12. On some thinking, I suspect that the boy may have been impatient and may have picked the collar up before the menus got fully built. Should I just tell him to leave it next to the updater for a fixed long period, like ten or twenty minutes? The problem is, it happens in a public place so he'll be stuck watching it.
  13. The sub (actually a he) tried the Tooth collar and pdated it, including Spy. There was a message: [16:18] OpenCollarUpdater - 3.714: : ExtraSpy will be updated/installed. Yet when all was over and he picked up the collar, only Label became available! And I really do need Spy! What can we do to ensure the addons WORK? Apart from using the basic collar.
  14. Is it possible for ME to update and transfer the collar, or does it become non-transfer?
