  1. A plain vanilla clearing of caache may not be enough. Thry cleaning cache manually while you are not logged in to SL. Clearing your cache manually will “cure” all manner of odd behavior and is the suggested procedure before resorting to more drastic steps like reinstalling the viewer. 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 Items”. 2.Wait for your inventory to repopulate fully. The process may be sped up, if necessary, by typing random letters into the search bar. 3.While inventory repopulates, do not teleport anywhere, and do not attempt to access anything in your inventory. Talk to people or surf the web, or just go out for coffee 4.Watch as it repopulates. As long as you can see (Fetched…) at the top of the inventory window, it is still loading. 5.Once inventory has repopulated, log out of SL once more, then log back in.
  2. Support is at https://support.secondlife.com/contact-support/ but first, try logging in to a different region. ..... Ongoing Issue with Offline RegionsPosted by Status Desk on November 12th, 2011 at 10:29 am PST[postED 10:28AM PST, 12 November 2011] We are aware of a problem that causes regions to go offline more frequently than normal. Our developers were alerted to the issue over the weekend and continue to work around the clock towards a solution. We understand how disruptive this is to your inworld experience. If your region is offline, please go to your support portal and submit a case using the following types: “Land & Region” > “Report an Offline Region”. This queue is being closely monitored to ensure the fastest turnaround possible. We will post an update as soon as we have more information on resolution.
  3. You can't squat legally. Just as in RL, if the owner catches you building on his land without permission, you will be ejected. People rent land all the time, though. I have rented shops and the parcel where I have my home for several years and have had good landlords in every case. When it comes right down to it, we are all leasing from LL, directly or indirectly. Even if you "buy" your own private estate, you are still paying LL an annual rental fee.
  4. gunjitaaa wrote: but it will just mean creating a new id Yes, exactly right. That's what an alt is ..... a new account. When you have an alt, it's like having a twin sister. You are related, but you are two different people. You can share some things, just the way you can share things with friends, but there are some things that are yours alone, so you cannot share them.
  5. The low-prim way is to use Photoshop to create a new texture that looks like vines on a pillar and then apply it to your pillar prims. The higher prim solution is to create a new texture that just has vines on it and has an alpha background. Apply that to a new cylndrical prim that's slightly larger than your pillars and then superimpose it on them.
  6. Arrows? You mean you are missing folders? See >>> http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Inventory_loss
  7. You may be stuck. Once you have deeded an item to a group, you are no longer the owner. The group is. So when the group no longer exists, you no longer have access to it as a group member and you have no way to get the group to sell it back to you. It's sort of like what happens if a SL resident closes his account, leaves SL, and abandons all his stuff in world. There's no way for anyone else to claim it. If you were the owner of the group, you might have some luck talking to the support staff in Live Chat. If you aren't a Premium member, however, you don't have that option and there's no good way to file a support ticket for this type of problem.
  8. This section of the forums is here to help scripters learn from each other, or as a place for scripters to share new approaches to their work. It's not a place to ask for scripters to write free scripts. If you want to hire a scripter, the place to post is the Wanted section of the Commerce forums.
  9. Well, I did say it was a guess. You're probably right. I wouldn't be surprised if LL had changed something in the server code that has the same effect too, but I figured it was worth at least mentioning that your own graphics card could be doing it.
  10. Can you log on anywhere else? Try it, and then try teleporting to your land. If you can't do that, it's probably because your sim is off line for a while. Wait.
  11. It could just be your graphic card's way of prioritizing the order in which it renders objects. A graphics card will usually rez nearby objects faster than ones far away, for example, and will generally render whatever your mouse cursor is touching faster than other things. That strategy reduces load on the card, so it doesn't have to do everything at once, and it means that you can see "important" things first. The Firestorm and Phoenix viewers even have a built-in function, adjustable in Preferences, that spreads out the rendering process over several seconds when you TP to a new location so that "important" things snap into view faster while less important ones lag behind. Anyway ... just a guess here, but your graphic card may be doing a version of this on its own, either by design or because it's getting overloaded (maybe overheated?). When was the last time you opened the case on your computer and blew out the dust bunnies and cat hair with a can of air?
  12. Exactly. And then you don't need the second script at all. :smileywink:
  13. And you have rebooted your router, right? Just unplug it for a few minutes and plug it back in. Sometimes routers can be touchy.
  14. Yup. true. It doesn't hurt to shoot low and then increase bandwidth again if your connection can handle it.
  15. I have never bought a pre-loaded AO, because I have never seen one that didn't include a mess of animations that I don't want and wouldn't care to pay for. I always buy anims separately and then load them into an AO. These days, I think the best option is to use a viewer like Firestorm or Phoenix that has a built-in AO. That way, you don't need to waste space on your screen for an unnecessary HUD, and you end up wearing one less script (which reduces your own lag when you TP). The Firestorm AO is very easy to use. Essentially, you just open its control panel and drop your anims in. You can mess with them to change the order in which they play or how fast they change, but the thing works fine even if you don't do any of that.
  16. It's not completely clear to me what the problem is, except that you can't log on. Are you getting an error message of some kind? Something that suggests that this is a DNS problem, maybe? If it is a DNS problem, you might try changing your DNS settings. Instead of using whatever your ISP gives you by default, try using Google's free pblic DNS servers. The instructions for making that change are here >>> http://code.google.com/speed/public-dns/ .
  17. I agree. The Permalinks are a real mess. I have to open each permalink separately to see whether there is something there. OPs sometimes respond to our requests for more information by burying them in permalinks, where they are invisible. Actually, if an OP updates the question itself, following our instructions about Options >> Edit, I have found that the update isn't sent to my e-mail either, so I don't know that it's there. It makes answering questions very difficult.
  18. That sounds like the bug described at https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/SH-2668 . Take a look and see. According to the most recently notes in that JIRA, it has apparently been fixed for the latest release of LL's V3 viewer and is included in the upcoming release of Firestorm, but will still affect older viewers.
  19. To be perfectly clear, I am NOT a LL employee. All of us here in this forum are SL residents, just like you. Our only claim to expertise, if we have any at all, is that we have been around long enough to make our own mistakes a few times and have figured out how to extricate ourselves. Other than that, all we can do is point to resources in world and on various web sites and forums.
  20. There are few guarantees in life. In four and a half years, I have never had a problem in SL that I could not solve by myself or with the help of friends or experts in this forum. There are some issues that only LL can deal with, however. If objects are absolutely gone - not rezzed and not in your inventory -- then only LL will have a chance at retrieving them. Take another look at http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Lost_inventory to be sure that you have tried everything that you can. After that, you'll have to decide what to do. All we can do is lay out the options.
  21. The support service doesn't want to help because you are not a Premium member. Basic members get some limited support for non-technical issues, but that's all.. This is probably the best reason -- in my own mind, the only reason -- for paying for a Premium membership in SL. It may be worth it to pay for Premium membership for one month now, if your coalesced object contained irreplaceable or expensive items.
  22. You shouldn't need to do anything fancy at all unless your machine is behind a corporate firewall. If you are still having firewall troubles chek these two sites .... http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Configuring_your_firewall (You'll find ports and IP addresses here) and http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=as_anti-virus_white_listing_steps (in case antivirus routines are also an issue). ETA: I didn't notice that you had already posted this question as http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Technical/Coudl-someone-advise-how-to-get-this-working-with-trend-iwss/qaq-p/1222987 and that Cinn had given you the same advice there. If you are still having problems, please do NOT start a new thread. Add new information to your original question by clicking on the Options link in its upper right corner and selecting EDIT.
  23. It's too late for the advice now, but please remember for the next time..... Before you rez any coalesced object, be sure to open your Build Edit tool (CTRL + 3). If you forget to do that, the object will rez as a bunch of unconnected objects. Some of them might be underground, some might be inside nearby objects, and some may be outside your parcel. It's a recipe for losing items or (if you are slightly luckier) having them returned by your neighbor. So long as you have the Build Edit tool open, though, you can move the entire collection of objects as a single entity, using the red-green-blue arrows. If you discover that you have made a ghastly mistake, you can also still take the coalesced object back to your inventory again. No loss. Once you are sure that all parts are accounted for, then you can close the tool.
  24. (1) Bad microphone wires or switch? (2) Intermittent Internet connection? (Reboot your router by unplugging it from the power for a few minues.) (3) Inappropriate MaximumBandwidth setting? [This is the big reason] >>> Many people set the Maximum Bandwidth slider waaaay too high. For normal use, a setting of 1,500 or less is best. If you have your Maximum Bandwidth set to allow using most or all of your real bandwidth (the connection speed,) you are telling the simulators to use “the whole pipe, as best they can” to shove geometry, texture and control data back to your viewer. There is a problem with this strategy, though. It doesn’t leave any space for audio, music, video or voice! Remember that those types of traffic are separate from the Maximum Bandwidth control. In this case, you should try reducing the Maximum Bandwidth, sometimes “mightily”! If you are on, for instance, a connection that provides only 500 kbps of throughput and voice is not working at all, or is very choppy, you may want to try running Maximum Bandwidth at 400, or even 300 kbps. This will make things rez more slowly and movement will be slower, but it may tame the geometry and texture traffic enough to let voice keep the connection live. (4) WiFi interference? Many SL residents find wireless connections to be very problematic. They are subject to interference from cell phones, garage door openers, and other electronic devices, and they lose bandwidth to other users. (5) Other programs on your computer? E-mail, anti-virus, Microsoft updates, and other routines on your computer that claim some of your Internet service will make voice choppy.
