  1. This looks like a great question to pose in the Mesh Forum. Until then, spend some time with this page >>> http://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/Uploading-a-mesh-model/ta-p/974185 and this video tutorial >>> http://blog.machinimatrix.org/optimizing-meshes/
  2. Awwwww.... he's probably right, Peggy. If everyone reports the spam, then we're spamming the moderators. It probably drives them nuts. They've actually been pretty good about dealing with spammers recently, unlike in the days of the bargain L$ spammer or our Spanish friend. Anyway, I'm not sure I'd want the job of being the forum's spam monitor at 2 a.m. on a weekend. Hehehe... Right now he's spamming the Korean forum. That's not going to disturb me much tonight.
  3. It sounds as if you have logged in with the current LL viewer and are in Basic mode. So log out. Then open the login screen and find the pulldown menu that says MODE. Select Advanced and then Quit. Next time you log in, you will be in Advanced mode and you'll have all of the features you want, including TP, your Inventory, Search..... BTW, I never use the LL viewer myself, but I am told that the most current version actually has a MODE button on the screen in the extreme upper right corner, near where your L$ balance and your sound controls are. Apparently, you can switch modes there wi
  4. Just flag them as spam and let the moderators deal with it if you want to. I'm sure they have already noticed, though. Those are usually posted late in the evening (SLT) and seem to vanish by the next morning.
  5. That message is often LL's code for telling you that you have been banned, but recently it has been triggered for some people by having a wonky router. Try two different things: (1) Reboot your router and modem by unplugging both of them for a few minutes while you go make a cup of coffee. Then plug them back in and reboot your computer. That process will clear any garbage in your router's RAM and will force the system to grab your IP address again. (2) If that doesn't work, try changing your DNS settings to Google's free public DNS servers ( and instead of using whatever
  6. Noooooooooooooo....... That's the old wiki page that recommended using RenderUnloadedAvatar. You won't look like a cloud any more, but by definition, if you are "unloaded", you'll still not be rezzed properly. In fact, you'll look like Ruth. I don't know why they haven't killed that page yet.
  7. We've had quite a number of people with this problem posting in SL Answers since mid-summer. It's apparently the crash logger itself that gets corrupted. The only solution that seems to work is to do a complete, clean re-install. That means removing all files associated with your current installation (See http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Clearing_the_cache) first, including files in APPDATA. If you install a new download on top of what's there now, you'll just inherit the borked files. In some cases, people have ended up reverting to an earlier version of the viewer, just to be sure.
  8. No panic... try simple things first. Type CTRL + Alt + R a few times to force your client viewer to resend your avatar files to LL's servers. If that doesn't work, change your active group or wear a different hair base. Or try going into Appearance mode for a little bit. Bake fail has many causes, and what works for you won't necessarily work for the next person, and might not work for you tomorrow. Here's the complete set of tricks. >>> http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=fs_bake_fail Start at the top and move down the list to more and more powerful things until you fo
  9. Rats! It probably would not have been returned as a coalesced item, you know. You should have received the two DVD players and the table as separate items unless you were foresighted enough to have your Edit tool open as you rezzed the coalesced object. Anyway... you would have noticed them back in inventory by now too. OK..... Your best shot now is to call Live Chat, assuming that you are a Premium member. If you aren't, and if the movies are really worth a lot to you, it may be worth becoming Premium just to be able to use Live Chat for this.
  10. If the download itself is timing out, it could be something as simple as an overloaded server or a very busy time on the pipeline between it and your computer. If that's the case, it ought to clear up if you just wait for a quieter time. You might also have a noisy connection that is losing bandwidth or experiencing high packet loss, so that the downloader is hanging up after a while. If you are on a wireless connection, switch to a direct cable now. That should help a lot. You might also try rebooting your router by unplugging it for a few minutes to clear its RAM and give it a chance to
  11. The locally cached copy of your inventory may be out of sync with SL's asset servers, where the actual inventory is stored. To rebuild it..... 1. Open Preferences → Network & Cache 2. Go to the first path “Cache Location” and click the “Open” button behind the path. This will open a file explorer window displaying your current cache location. 3. Logout (close the viewer) and then delete everything inside the cache folder displayed in your file explorer. Now continue as follows: 1.Log back into SL, to a quiet region (try Smith or Pooley). On your inventory window, click “Recent Ite
  12. Just a guess, but it sounds like the message is telling you that the two viewers don't work and play well together. They are trying to share files that they have in common, but the settings for one viewer are messing up the other one. If that's the case, then my solution would be to completely remove both viewers and then download and install only the one that you really want. Be sure that you do a clean re-install, though, so that absolutely everything is removed before you start over. Here are instructions written for Firestorm, easily modified in the tiny ways necessary to make them app
  13. The most straightforward solution I can think of is to put a simple script in the object that you rez that reports its own position if you click on it. In simple form ... integer gChan;default{ on_rez (integer startup) { gChan = startup; } touch_start (integer num) { if (lDetectedKey(0) == llGetOwner()) { llSay(gChan, "Sofa" + (string) llGetPos() + (string)llGetRot()); } }} The rezzer passes the sofa a chat channel number as it is rezzed and then listens on that channel for the message that's sent when you click on the sofa. It par
  14. I did it all by hand, one item at a time, when I moved my shop a year ago. I remember having the same question and then wondering how a global function would handle a lot of my Marketplace items that are not in an in-word shop at all? Or what if I had two kinds of items in Marketplace, but had them in different stores in world? How would I do a global change that would affect only the items that belonged in the shop I moved? I can see that a global function could be handy, but it would have to be a lot more sophisticated than all-or-nothing.

    I have never found a terraforming tool with finer control than the built-in bulldozer, but I haven't spent a lot of time looking for one either. You can get pretty fine control out of the bulldozer, though, if you practice a lot. Set the strength and size of the tool at their lowest setting and do your finest terraforming with tiny taps on the mouse button. It can be a little frustrating until you get good at it, but I have been able to get surprisingly good landform detail by just being patient. It also helps sometimes to alternate back and forth between tools -- raise an area slightly, r
  16. And we can't help either, because you didn't tell us anything that might give us a clue what your problem is. Have you ever been able to log in before? What happens when you try? Do you get a message of some kind? What viewer are you using? What are the specs on your computer? How have you already tried to fix it? Don't start a new thread. If you want to add information, just click on the Options link in the upper right corner of your question here and select EDIT.
  17. If the dialog boxes pop up at all, then you're in an area where scripts will work. Is it pretty laggy, though? When you click a button, the dialog box should close. If it doesn't, then either the script is busted, or everything is so laggy that it's taking too long to make a color change. Try doing it in a nice quiet sim, like Pooley or Smith. If it still doesn't work, get in touch with the merchant that you bought the shoes from and ask for help.
  18. You shouldn't need to do a character test. Try simple things first.... change your active group or wear a different hair base. To see the best list of things to try, go to >>>> http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=fs_bake_fail
  19. Your Internet connection may be fine for simple things like e-mail and browsing, and even for some games that don't require much constant data streaming between distant servers and your machine. SL uses a lot of bandwidth and puts different demands on your machine than you are used to. There are MANY causes of lag.... Too many to describe here, and to diagnose your specific problem. Try reading http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=fs_very_laggy http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=slow_rez http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=fs_speedtest and http://wiki.secondlife.co
  20. Well, I just spent 20 minutes flitting about on International Schools island and found that most of the MOAP displays I tried worked properly. I ran across 4 or 5 that put up a blank screen. My guess is that they have dead links or are otherwise borked. For the most part, though, I see no problem. BTW, I tried turning each of the options for media under Preferences >> Sound & Graphics OFF and ON, and saw no difference, so that guess was a non-starter.
  21. Check in Preferences >>> Sound & Media to see whether you have enabled Allow Media to Auto-Play. In many viewers, the default setting is OFF, which is a wise choice because it helps users avoid IP exploits that have been a growing privacy concern. Many SL residents leave that setting turned off deliberately.
  22. That's one good reason to read the wiki articles that I gave you the links for earlier ............. Warning: Please use this reasonably: if you abandon and choose a new Linden Home five times in 24 hours, you're temporarily blocked from choosing another. You'll need to wait after 24 hours have elapsed to register again.

    There's no need to be a Premium member or to buy land, and if you have good building and texturing skills there's no need to buy a house that someone else made. You can also rent land and then build your own. That's what I do.
  24. Yes to both. You have many choices for animation and for script editing. Those two are certainly popular ones that work for many people. The important element, of course, is the skill that it takes to use them creatively. Have fun with this interesting project.
