  1. That can be a challenge. The best solution is often to send an occasional e-mail between prims to update the URL. It's clunky, but it works. There are also some dynamic DNS server options described HERE that you may want to consider.
  2. The "Is it plugged in?" question in this case is "Did you check to be sure that you are wearing the group tag when you tried getting the meter?" I can't count the number of times that I have had the wrong tag overhead and been denied access to someplace or been forbidden to pick up some item. It may also be a lag problem, in which case the best solution is just to try again another time. If the sim's servers are busy or your own client is acting up, you can sometimes have trouble rezzing items or picking them up.
  3. For completeness, I should add that it's not simply a matter of whether the two textures overlap in your line of sight. The occurrence of an alpha sorting problem depends on the distance between the surfaces, the angle between them, and their angle to your line of sight as well. Also, some graphics cards are better at resolving the issue than others, so two people viewing the same textures from the same spot may see different things.
  4. You have discovered the well-known alpha glitch, which is a feature of all virtual environments that use GL architecture, not just SL. It's an inescapable occlusion problem. Basically, your graphics card can't decide which of the two textures is closer to your viewpoint, so it tries displaying both of them, causing a flicker. The closest analogy I can draw in RL is to what happens when you are trying to wash a spot off a window and can't decide whether it's on the inside or the outside. There are several ways to design around the alpha glitch -- the best one is to avoid using 32-bit textures
  5. Si vous avez une compétence particulière dans la vie réelle que vous pouvez utiliser dans SL - peut-être un talent pour le design des vêtements ou pour l'écriture de scripts - vous pouvez ouvrir une entreprise. Il ya des risques, bien sûr, car vous avez besoin de payer un loyer et de créer la publicité. mais ces risques sont beaucoup plus petits qu'en RL. Si vous n'avez pas une compétence encore, vous pouvez toujours prendre des cours gratuits dans SL pour apprendre. De nombreux entrepreneurs créatifs dans SL a commencé de cette façon.
  6. Meanwhile, take a good look at the example script in the LSL wiki at http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/LlGetNotecardLine. It's fairly simple and well-documented, and it has everything you need to make a functioning notecard reader.
  7. Take a look at the Linkable Multiprim Sliding Door script that I posted in the Scripting Library a while ago. You should be able to link your doors to the main structure with no trouble, no matter how you package it.
  8. Hehe, a semanticist. :smileyvery-happy: Yes, nine lines of display, eight of which decribe items in the box. Those eight keep rotating up, marquee-style, while the header line stays put.
  9. The one to IM or send a notecard is not the creator. Her profile sends you to her Brand Manager, Felicity Blumenthal, if you have questions that the FAQ doesn't answer.
  10. Hmmm.. I had no trouble getting to http://www.bellezaskins.com/faq-2/ myself just now. Everything is there. May have just been an Internet glitch.

Canoro Philipp wrote: @Rolig yes, it is like the Mac vs. PC argument, fortunatly those differences are mostly forgotten. this is exactly the type of mentality that is unhealthy, for one to win the other has to lose. Yup. You got it. This is another argument that should be forgotten too, and we have to start somewhere. How about starting right here? :smileywink:
  12. Check to be sure that you haven't accidentally muted yourself. It's very easy to do. Check your list of blocked avatars and objects. My guess is that you are on it.
  13. Just as a side note, if you did ever want to use a timer for an application like this, I'd suggest testing for inequalities instead of equality. That is, test if(rotate > 10.0) instead of if(rotate == 10.1) Most of the time it won't make much difference, especially in a simple script like this, but if you get in the habit of testing an inequality you'll never be tripped up when some internal calculation feeds you 10.0999 or a mysterious glitch overshoots the target and gives you 10.2. I agree with Peter, though, that llSetTextureAnim is a much better choice here anyway. :smileywink:
  14. Ho-hum. This is sort of like the old PC vs. Mac arguments. There are partisans on both sides and there's always a conspiracy theorist around to make it interesting. Once you get past the shouting, the fact is that we have a free market with good alternatives competing for consumer attention. The competition keeps all the development teams on their toes and assures us that we can choose whichever product suits us best personally. We all win.
  15. Domitan Redenblack asked: "If you can't stop an item being sold, perhaps I should note "Free copy and transfer ONLY" in a startup message?" A more effective tactic, perhaps, might be to code something like changed (integer change){ if(change&CHANGED_OWNER) { llOwnerSay("If you just paid for this item, you were robbed. You can get one free from Domitan Redenblack."); }} :smileyvery-happy:
  16. From the LSL wiki: • key id – avatar or prim UUID that is in the same region id must specify a valid rezzed prim or avatar key, present in or otherwise known to the sim in which the script is running, otherwise an empty string is returned. In the case of an avatar, this function will still return a valid name if the avatar is a child agent of the sim (i.e., in an adjacent sim, but presently able to see into the one the script is in), or for a short period after the avatar leaves the sim (specifically, when the client completely disconnects from the sim, either as a main or child agent).
  17. A floor shadow is just an extra prim that is textured so that it grades from a midtone gray at about 50% alpha at the middle to 100% alpha at the edges. You ought to be able to make one in a minute or less with Photoshop or GIMP, or you can find freebie ones all over SL. ETA: In fact, here's one now >>> "21b98d3c-617c-8165-d1bb67ec9dfb". Just apply it to your prim with a script and you'll have a shadow prim.
  18. Ooop. Right you are. I regularly open boxes as attachments because it saves me the trouble of going home again to do it, but I misspoke. You do need to do it with Edit >> Contents and then drag the items to your inventory. "Open" doesn't work.
  19. Earlier this month there were still a few welcoming areas in SL where it was possible to register for a new account with a "legacy" name. I am not sure how many of them are still active, or for how much longer. ETA: Here's the list that was still good during the first week in March, the last time I paid attention: http://www.emagine.jp/regapi/secondlife.php http://islab.org/slreg/ http://sl.nmc.org/create.php?v=2 http://registration.nanolands.com/ http://registration.scilands.org.uk/ http://registration.secondhealth.org.uk/ http://www.thevesuviusgroup.com/reg/vai/slreg/index.php
  20. :smileyvery-happy: Pas du tout. Vous avez seulement besoin de se rappeler que la boîte a déjà le "http://" en elle, donc il faut faire attention de ne pas ajouter un de plus par erreur. Sinon, votre expérience a été couronnée de succès. Félicitations.
  21. Pas tout à fait. Il n'existe aucun lien sur le mot "voila". ETA: Ooop, pardon. Il est là, mais mon navigateur ne peut pas lier à elle pour une raison quelconque. Je pense que c'est mon problème, pas le vôtre. ETA: Non, je vois. Il ya un supplément de "http://"dans votre adresse web.

    Eh bien, j'aime le Google Translate (http://translate.google.com/?tab=mT#fr|en|). Je ne sais pas si elle traduit le langage technique correctement, parce que je ne connais pas les termes techniques en français moi-même. Sa traduction de phrases de base est généralement OK, cependant. (Il me sauve aussi la peine de taper les accents, qui ne sont pas sur mon système, j'ai donc l'utiliser même si je pourrais probablement écrire une bonne réponse en français par moi-même.)

    LOL. Ich wünschte nur, dass meine deutschen Wortschatz besser war. Es wurde viel zu vielen Jahren, seit ich studiert, so jetzt muss ich auf Google Translate verlassen. Ich war froh, dass Ihre Frage auf Französisch statt gestellt wurde. ;-)

    Ah, je viens de voir ta nouvelle note d'explication. Peewee y a repondu exactement. Bonne chance.
  25. You will discover that you are not allowed to drag a box to the ground in most places in SL. There are two ways around the problem. One way is to find a sandbox where you are allowed to rez items. You can do that by opening your Search function, selecting the "Places" tab, and typing in the keyword sandbox. Another way to open a box is to attach it to yourself instead. You have already done that simply by wearing the box. Once it is attached, you should be able to select the box by right clicking on it, and then select "Open" to send its contents to your inventory. When you are finished,
