  1. I think the OP's concern is not for scripts that she can control, but ones that she might run across while wandering around in SL. It really depends on how each script was written. Suppose that it used the name as a Dialog button, for example, where the label must be less than 12 characters long. The OP's name would kick up a run time error, forcing the owner to restart it.
  2. That IS a long name, but you're stuck with it. You cannot change your username. It's like your RL Social Security Number .... yours for life. You can adopt a Display Name, though. It's like a nickname -- unofficial when it comes to important things like logging in and spending L$, which require your username, but handy when you want a short handle that your friends can remember and pronounce. Here's how to make one >>> http://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/Display-names/ta-p/700173 ETA: BTW, scripts may be problematic. Ones that need to identify you for
  3. I can imagine how to write a script that would do that, and I can't imagine how to do it without a script. Ask a friend to help while you do some testing .... Open your inventory, then click the Worn tab. Look carefully at everything that it says you are wearing. If something doesn't look familar, take it off and see if you still glom onto your friend. If you go through the whole list and don't find unfamiliar suspects, go back and go methodically through everything else. (You don't have to get naked, though. System clothes -- painted on your av -- can't be scripted. You're looking for a

Plus, it is my experience that everything that I sit down and make has it's own unique qualities. Things you would have never considered before are now not only possible, but you'll end up prefering. These are not things you will ever read about. Oh, I'm not concerned about making a mesh object. I'm not a professional 3D modeller like Chosen, but I can make a passable mesh object in Blender now. I'm concerned about the economics
  5. I hear something else behind your question, so let me answer it too..... Removing the viewer from your computer does not cancel your account. To do that, you need to go to your dashboard at secondlife.com and then to Account >> Cancel Account . If you are a Premium member, you will need to settle any financial obligations by paying the final bill from LL. As an alternative, provided that you do not have any recurring charges, you can just walk away without cancelling a Basic account. The advantage is that if you change your mind later, your inventory and account balance will still be
  6. I agree. I have been just sitting back and reading for the past several posts, soaking it all in. This has helped me get my head around several big questions as I move gradually into the mesh world.
  7. Check your router first. See if plugging your cable directly into the modem helps. If so, then go back and reboot your router to clean it out and get a fresh connection. (If you're using wireless, of course, switch to a cable and that may cure the problem right there.) Also, check to see if you have some program running in the background on your machine that could be messing things up. One potential culprit is your antivirus progrogam. Norton, in particular, insists on scanning every single texture that enters your cache unless you make an exception for it.
  8. Reira Fang wrote: p.s. also if i put avatar in some place and doesnt move my keyboard/mouse, its slowly change the location, like went to the left side of building... That symptom often indicates a problem with your router. As I indicated in reply to your note back to Cinn, you may be able to clear it up by rebooting the router. If your router is actually failing, you may need to replace it (about $75-$100).
  9. The ping values are the time (in milliseconds) it takes to reach the server from your computer. If this number is high, it usually indicates a problem with your network or internet connection. If you are on a wireless connection, switch to a direct cable connection now. Reboot your router by unplugging it for a few minutes and plugging it back in. If those things don;t work, notify your ISP and ask for their help in tracing the problem. They will definitely want to know if there is a problem in their own servers and cables.
  10. Most of what you describe sounds like you have a bad case of lag. Open your statistics bar (CTRL + Shift + 1) and take a look at your FPS (Frames per second), right at the top of the display. If it is much below 20, SL will start to look like you're viewing an old filmstrip instead of a smooth animation. Compare with Sim FPS, which you will find lower down in the display, under "Simulator." If the sim's servers are running up to full efficiency, that number should be close to 45. If Sim FPS is really low, your lag problem is with LL's servers and should clear up if you go to another, less

  12. It's not a complete script. You'd have to build it into whatever you are writing.
  13. I hate it when people post puzzles just before bedtime. :smileyvery-happy: I don't have the answer to yours, mostly because I really do have to get to bed and can't spend any more time playing with it. Try this little script, though, and see if it helps point you in a productive direction ......... default{ touch_start(integer total_number) { llSensor("",llGetOwner(),AGENT,20,PI); } sensor(integer num) { vector gPos = llGetPos(); vector dPos = llDetectedPos(0); rotation Rot = llRotBetween(<1.0,0.0,0.0>,llVecNorm(<dPos.x,dPos.y,gPos.z&
  14. You copyright it the same way you copyright anything .... just add a note that says "Copyright 2011by Rachid Spot". If you want to go to the trouble of registering the copyright, you can file a form with the U.S. Library of Congress or its equivalent in your country. You could also consider using a license notice in your script. Here's a sample from one of Void Singer's scripts... /*//-- License Text --//*/ /*// Free to copy, use, modify, distribute, or sell, with attribution. //*/ /*// ©2010 (CC-BY) [ http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0 ] //*/ /*// Void Singer [ https://wiki.sec
  15. Bake failure can be caused by many different things, so the same cure doesn't work for everyone, and what works for you today will not necessarily work tomorrow. Always try the easiest solutions first (change your hair base, type CTRL + Alt + R ...). Then gradually work up to whatever does work. Here's a very good list, easiest things at the top. It's written by the folks at Forestorm, but it applies to any viewer. >>>> http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=fs_bake_fail . BTW, you'll notice that the Character Test is the LAST thing on the list ... If nothing else works.
  16. Oh. It sounds like your installation of Phoenix is seriously borked. If I were you, I'd consider wiping all traces of the current installation off of the machine and starting fresh with a newly downloaded copy. Reinstallation can be tricky for some people, especially if they have several viewers loaded. Unless you start with a clean slate, you can be inheriting a lot of damaged stuff. Follow these instructions for doing a clean re-install >>>> http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=clean_reinstall so that you get not only the program files but also the user settings files.
  17. For LL's viewer, depending on which you prefer, you can view your profile on the web: Go to my.secondlife.com and click Log In. Login with your username and password. Your profile appears. In the Viewer: Select Me menu > My Profile. Right-click your avatar and select My Profile. OR, in the sidebar, click the My Profile button, then click the Profile button. On both the web and in the Viewer, you can click the Edit Profile button or the Settings tab to start customizing. For completeness, if you'd like to edit your profile in Firestorm, see >>> http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku
  18. There is no PRIM_TYPE parameter for PRIM_TYPE_MESH yet. Here's the most recent relevant conversation I could find about it, from Kelly Linden's office hours in September 2010: Kaluura Boa: Will there be associated LSL functions at least? Haravikk Mistral: It figures that meshes appear just as I finish learning to make sculpties =D Kelly Linden: shoot zep. what do you mean kaluura Kaluura Boa: I don't know... At least a PRIM_TYPE_MESH added to llSLPP(F) Kelly Linden: oh! for mesh. I'm not really sure right now. I need to talk with them about that. Unless Void Singer or someone clos
  19. Hehehe.... You often get it right by zooming in on the obvious, simple solution while I am searching for something more mysterious. We're a good team that way, Val.
  20. It is confusing. Even when I'm fairly confident that I understand, I do some empirical tests with my alt to be sure. I find that it is also very helpful to have activated debug permissions so that I can see more detail about which permissions have actually been set and which ones are "pending" (with a * next to them). The general rules are (a) set permissions from the inside out --- that is, things in object contents before the objects themselves -- and (b) set object permissions on rezzed items, not on items in your inventory or in the contents of other objects. The truly confusing thing
  21. This is a wierd week in SL, because they are doing major maintenance on the OS software in servers. The problem may be associated with that work in some odd way. On the other hand, it may be another random occurrence of https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/MISC-2744 . If you look through the JIRA, you'll see that other people have had version of this problem, and that it has cleared up mysteriously by itself. I guess I'd recommend being patient and seeing if this is another one of those times. If th problem is still with you by th end of the week, come back and we'll try to figure out wha

I was afraid that might happen. Your card may not be able to run with the current version of LL's viewer. As I told you earlier, SL often has problems with ATI grahics cards. You should probably try installing either a previous version of LL's viewer or one of the excellent T

  24. If you go to this web site (http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx), you will be able to find the correct drivers for your computer. The site also includes good instructions for updating drivers. You should be aware, however, that SL has always had difficulty with ATI graphics cards, so updating the drivers may not solve your problem. If it doesn't, come back and let us know.
