  1. It's one of many tools used to recover from some forms of ruthing, or bake fail. You can get the same effect by simply changing hair bases if you ever find yourself logging in and looking like a cloud. For more Ruth lore and a chance to look like Ruth, see http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Ruth
  2. Strange as it may seem, that message often means that you were wearing a group tag (title) with "illegal" characters in it when you logged out. That tag is preventing you from getting back in. The only solution is to get someone to kick you out of the group. If you can log in with an alt, IM the owner of the group and explain the situation. Ask to be ejected. If you are the owner of the group, you'll have to convince the others to leave the group so that you are the only one remaining. The group will automatically vanish within 48 hours when you are its only member. "Illegal" characte
  3. It's very tempting to recommend that you stick with a viewer that you already know works. Since you seem set on using the LL V3.03, though, try a couple of things. First go to Preferences (CTRL + P) >> Graphics >> Hardware Settings and UNcheck Enable OpenGL Vertex Buffer Objects (VBO). That setting is supposed to speed up texture rezing, but it can have the opposite effect, especially with ATI graphics cards. If that doesn't work .... Disable AI in Catalyst: Right click on your desktop (or right click the ATI logo in the bottom right tray) and select Catalyst Control Center;
  4. When you sell L$ from your dashboard, as Lyra advised, they go into your $USD account. You then have to submit a credit authorization to transfer dollars from that account to your PayPal account. The payout typicallly takes 3 to 5 business days.
  5. Your immediate option is to post this speculation in the General Discussions forum instead of Answers. We have only answers here. :smileyhappy: BTW, if you think SL is a good place to invest, I have a bridge that you might like.

All joking aside though I wonder how many other users were also charged $L as it is only 1L it is easy for us to miss it, and how long has this been happening? Well, it's always comforting to know that you aren't crazy, George. Personally, I can't get worked up over losing L$1. It's about 0.4 cents, which is too small to count as more than a tiny annoyance. STILL, there's an injustice to it, and that is annoying. I do suspect that it's a software
  7. The point is still that you can't move the avatar unless it is linked to something. Then your script can manipulate the linkset.
  8. If you have a question, it's smart to start a new thread. Nobody is going to see it here. It sounds like you need to log in to SL at a Help center or at someplace like Virtual Ability Island, and learn some basic skills. Meanwhile, see http://secondlife.com/my/whatnext/basics/?lang=en-US
  9. That is strange, George. I just checked and I am also being charged L$ for membership in two groups that have never had a liability before, and which don't own any land. Something is odd here. ETA: Well, nothing odd at all as it turns out. Someone in each of the two groups had decided to put a new exhibit in search for a while, so the groups were sharing the L$30/week charge among us. That's fine. Glad I checked. I hope it's something similar in your groups, George.
  10. You can't move an avatar directly using LSL, so the only way to do it is to rotate something that the avatar is linked to. Treat it as a poseball exercise, as Peter suggests, and set the rotation in llSetTarget. Unfortunately, that means your avatar will be immobile until s/he unlinks again, so you'll have to do any other movements either by triggering animations or by moving that "poseball".
  11. I can make a wild guess at part of the problem. We each have an "in box" that collects any IMs, notecards, group message, group invitations, and objects that people have sent to us when we were not in world to receive them. That "in box" holds a maximum of 25 things. Once it is full, the system will not deliver anything else. Extra items are not returned to the sender, and the sender is not notified. The items simply vanish .... forever. Therefore .... If you received more than 25 IMs and other items and then your landlord sent you the group invitation, it's gone. Also, if you and othe
  12. Rez = Resolve = Create = Bring into Existence = Make Visible
  13. Nobody is "following" you. This is LL's way of telling you that somebody is interested in using an RSS feed to watch what's put on your facebook-wannabe public profile. You can kill it by opening the Privacy tab in your profile and making all the settings as strict as possible.
  14. Cinn's answer is right for mainland property. If your group owns a private estate, a common practice is to create an alt that serves as a banker for the group. Group members pay the banker their share of tier each month, as if they were renting parcels on the estate, and the banker pays LL. In a way, it's like playing Monopoly, in which one person is the banker -- responsible for managing the flow of money but not allowed to keep it.
  15. If your camera is suddenly pointing straight up - or straight down - or some impossible direction, then try these: Press escape a few times. Pressing escape will clear focus from any windows that have focus, and finally, will reset camera position.Go to Advanced → Show Debug Settings and enter “FocusOffsetRearView” 1) in the input field. Click “Reset to default” at the bottom.Press Ctrl-9 - a few times even.If that doesn't work, hold down Shift, then use the mouse wheel to change the camera angle.If all of these fail to work, then the only remaining solution is to reset all your settings to d
  16. So would many other people, to judge from the number of times we have seen your question in the past few days. There's clearly a problem in Marketplace. All we can do is wait until LL figures out how to fix it. Meanwhile, there's always plenty of shopping in world, and you can have your friend accompany you and pick out her own gift. Just remember to hand her the cash instead of buying the item yourself, in case it's no transfer. You don't want to get stuck with a negligee you can't enjoy. :smileytongue:
  17. Yes, in fact >>> http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Technical/I-Cant-buy-a-voice-morph-pack-Anyone-else-with-this-problem/qaq-p/1126369 There seems to be more than one problem. We've also had a comment that voice morphing isn't working properly with the V3 viewer. I don't see a report in the JIRA, however, so nobody has submitted a note with documentation that the developers might use to solve the problem. If it is still acting up in a day or so, I suggest making a report yourself >>> https://jira.secondlife.com
  18. Oh, my, Peter! You know better than to include Universally F**ed-Up Code in messages here. Shame on you!
  19. One easy way to look, especially if your inventory is large, is to do a restricted search on your inventory's Recent page. Down in the lower left corner of that page, there's a gear symbol. Click it and select Show Filters, then adjust the Hours Ago or Days Ago settings to look for things that you have added to inventory during that time period. If your item doesn't show up, then it wasn't delivered (or your inventory is borked). Then you'll have to look up your Transaction History to get a record of the sale and contact the merchant who sold it to you. If you bought it in Marketplace, th
  20. It's almost always best to do everything in one script unless there's a good reason to keep some functions isolated from each other, or you have memory limitations. Making multipage menus isn't really hard once you get the hang of it. Study the LSL wiki's page on llDialog and then spend time digging through tutorials like https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/DialogMenus and the linked examples in it. The real challenge isn't syntax. It's logic. You need to have a clear idea of where you're going before you start writing a complex script or you'll get hopelessly twisted around. LSL's struct
  21. Messages to your group are different from greeter messages. At least people have opted IN to your group. If they don't want to receive group messages, they can opt out again. I opted out of one shop's group not long ago when I decided that it had become too spammy for my taste. I figure that customers in my own shop can do the same if they have second thoughts about joining my group.
  22. Um... equivalent to what? If your avatar's height is 2.09m, that is her height. Are you asking how long a meter is? Rez a prim and set its Z dimension to 1.0 m, then use it as a ruler. Or do you mean "How tall would my avatar be if I were in RL?" Well, if you were 2.09m tall in RL, you'd be about 6 feet 10 inches tall. Most people in RL are a bit shorter than that. Fortunately, you aren't in RL, and things in SL are scaled to your SL height (more or less). It only gets confusing if you try to live in both worlds at the same time, so forget that SL tells you your height in "meters". Yo
