  1. It depends on how much work you want to do. If you are satisfied with slapping a pic on a prim, that's all you have to do. Save the snapshot to your inventory and then drag/drop it on your prim's face. If you want to do any post-processing (editing out things, changing color balances, etc.) your have to save to your hard drive and do the work with Photoshop, then upload again.
  2. As others have said, contact each merchant and ask for redelivery. It's a pain, but they are used to it and most are pleasant about sending you your items. Not that it helps now, but to remember for the future: (1) Don't overuse the shopping cart. It is easily confused if you put more than a couple of things in it. (2) Don't buy things from Marketplace (especially LOTS of things) unless you are in world to receive them at the time. We each have an "in box" that holds IMs, notecards, group notices, group invitations, and anything that is delivered to us if we aren't in world at the time.
  3. Well, ... (a) it's a weekend, (b) it's barely October, and © I don't think there's ever been a guarantee that the periodic "virtual good" for premium membership is on a strict monthly calendar. Be patient. :smileywink:
  4. You haven't offered much information, so it's almost impossible to guess what the problem is. When you get "loged out," do you get an error message of some kind? What are you doing when that happens? What have you tried already?
  5. Have you checked to see whether you have an antivirus program or a firewall that is blocking access to some of SL's functions? Take a look at http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Configure_your_software_firewall to see what's involved.
  6. No matter which viewer you choose, there is only one file to install. Once you download it, just double click on it. The viewer will install itself automatically.
  7. You may be asking your computer -- or at least your graphics card -- to do too much. You can open Preferences from the login screen without actually logging in. Just type CTRL + P and it should open. Then go to the Graphics page. Make sure to click the Advanced button so that you can see all the parameters, then ..... (1) Reduce your draw distance to something like 64m. (2) Disable shadows (3) CLick the Hardware Settings button and (a) turn anisotropic filtering and antialiasing OFF and (b) UNcheck Enable OpenGL Virtual Buffer Objects (VBO) Then, log in to some nice low-lag place like
  8. Thanks, Chosen. Those are the sorts of things I'm trying to decide, and I do appreciate your wise words. I'm not a big-time builder -- I spend more of my time scripting these days -- so I don't have to rush into retooling for mesh, just as I didn't rush into sculpties at first. Until a higher proportion of residents have a mesh-enabled viewer (and until LL can manage to make theirs reliable) the market won't be beating my door down with demands for mesh stuff anyway. Still, I see the future on the near horizon so I want to get my head around these important issues. Thanks again. And, aga
  9. The SL wiki is by far your best reference. It's where you will find links to all sorts of tutorials and basic information. Start with http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Creation_Portal , where you will find links to building, texturing, animation, and many other skills. For scripting, start at http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/LSL_Portal , where you will find similar links to tutorials and our "bible" for LSL syntax.
  10. I know this wiki page is on the Firestorm web site, but it seerms to address the problem for V3 as well >>> http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=mac_os_x_10.7_lion_problems
  11. See http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Scripting-Library/Send-a-message-and-notecard-to-a-list-of-contacts/td-p/353177. Please note that there's an automatic 2-second delay for each IM you send in SL. That doesn't sound like much if you're only sending IMs to ten people. If you're sending them to 100 people, though, it will take 200 seconds -- that's 3 minutes and 20 seconds. Kinda slow. Also think kindly of the people on your list. Some people consider mass mailings to be spam.
  12. I have no idea. What have you tried, and what happened when you did? Any error messages? If you'd like to tell us more so we can help, just click on the Options link in the upper right corner of your question and select EDIT. ETA: Ah, I see... This is a duplicate post. Original at http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Technical/i-updated-my-cc-info-over-an-hour-go-and-it-s-still-saying-it-s/qaq-p/1139129 . Follow LoveAngel's advice there (and here).

    Some of your user settings files may be corrupted. Your best chance is to do a completely clean re-install of your viewer. That means removing not only the viewer's exe file and everything else in the same folder (probably in C:\Program) but also the viewer's local and roaming settings in Documents & Settings. Then install a fresh copy of your preferred viewer. See http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=fs_clean_reinstall for a description of the steps. If you're not using Firestorm, look for the equivalent files for your own viewer.
  14. It's almost impossible to tell you what to do without knowing more than you have told us here. Do you get an error message of some kind? If so, what is it? If not, then you didn't crash --- you disconnected. What was the last thing that the viewer did before you disconnected? What kind of computer do you have? What graphics card? If you want to add these bits of information or anything else that might help us diagnose the problem, please click on the Options link in the upper right corner of your question and select EDIT.
  15. If you just opened it, and it's a Basic account, don't even bother closing it. Be sure that you haven't committed to any continuing payments for group liabilities or rent, and just walk away. If you ever decide to come back, the account will still be here.
  16. First of all, please remove his name from your post here so that you don;t get in trouble for violating the Community Standards. Unfortunately, there's no rule that says a merchant has to refund your money. They generally do, especially if they expect your repeat business, but this merchant may have been burned too many times by scam artists to trust that you aren't just trying to pull a fast one on him. I had a similar disagreement with a merchant myself a year ago, so I also know that some merchants can just be hardnosed about it. You can try filing a support ticket and seeing if LL is wil
  17. To get a record of the individual items in your order, open Marketplace and click the My Marketplace menu at the top of the page. Select My Account >> Order History from the pulldown menu. If the item you received is on that transaction history, you ordered it, whether you intended to or not. You'll have to deal with the merchant and see whether s/he will be willing to refund your L$. Don't expect miracles, especially if you have copy permission for the item. If it's not on your Order History, the only way you could have received it is if someone bought it and had it sent as a gift.
  18. The error is easy to fix. The llSensorRepeat statement near the top of your script isn't in an event. It's just hanging out there by itself. If you want it to be in the state_entry event ( a logical spot), remove the extra }{ brackets just before it. As for the timing ..... You want to clear the lists of any names and times that are more than 24 hours old. (Script memory is precious.) However, suppose that you only ran the timer event once a day and someone wandered in 10 seconds after the timer fired? The next time it fired, 24 hours later, that person would not be removed from the list
  19. Absolutely. There's no question about that, Medhue. You and I both know, however, that a distressingly high number of landowners don't understand these things at all. Recall, for example, how poorly many landowners understand the effect that scripts have (or don't have) on sim perfomance. I am not confident that many landowners can get past two ground-level concerns: (1) I have to stay within a prim allocation and (2) I want to keep costs down. They do fret about lag all the time, but that's harder to understand. So,.... I build a house that has four large pillars, each with a nice ba

  21. It's a conection issue. You may be able to cure it by simply rebooting your router. Unplug it from the power and walk away for a few minutes. When you come back, plug it back in again. That will force the router to find the IP address again and may clear up your problem. It may also help to reboot your computer. If that doesn't work, then try this slightly more complicated solution >>> http://neilrobinson.wordpress.com/2008/05/19/a-fix-for-dns-errors/. Basically, it amounts to adding additional DNS servers to your DNS settings in Network settings under System Preferences, instea
  22. The last time I dared to use my ancient laptop to come in world, it did the same thing. It was overheating rapidly. I shut it down and have not used it for SL since. Overheating is no joke. It can wipe out your graphics card or components of your motherboard permanently. If you have a desktop machine, be sure that you open it up once a month and use a can of compressed air to blow out any dust and cat hair that has accumulated. Invest in a couple of good fans, too. (I have four in my tower, counting the one that's mounted on the GPU.) If you are using a laptop, it's harder to clean ins
  23. All we can do, as fellow SL residents, is point you to the relevant policies >>>> https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Snapshot_and_machinima_policy https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Intellectual_Property and, of course, the Terms of Service >>>> https://secondlife.com/corporate/tos.php?lang=en-US If you have any questions about what these mean (or even if your don't, but want to avoid legal issues), I advise hiring a RL lawyer to read and interpret them for you. Those of us who answer questions here are not qualified to do that.

Just grandfather pre-existing sculpties into the one-prim scheme, and apply new PE numbering only to newer ones. Yes, I considered that possibility myself, Chosen, but I couldn't figure out what quailfies as a "new" sculpty. If I rez a sculpty from inventory, or shift-drag it, is it new? Or if I create a new prim , declare it to be a sculpty and apply an "old" sculpty UV map? Or only if I use a newly-uploaded UV map? This feels like the -- heaven forbid -- arguments about when life begins. Wha
  25. Medhue Simoni wrote: As far as I know, sculpties will never cost more than 1 prim, unless you link it to a mesh or change it's physics. OH, and let me add. Any content creator that has a real investment in SL, and lots of loyal customers, will most likely convert their sculpties to mesh. I would also suggest they give free updates to mesh for their items. I personally will never buy another sculpty product. Because of sculpties being soooooo inefficient, in a year or 2, no1 will be making sculpties, and I'd be willing to bet that all users will replace their sculpties with mesh, whether
