  1. @ Monty Linden: One other effect i have notice with Total script time (shown in statistics) is that when the lindens update the server version  and restart the regions  is that the total script  script times shown in Statistics immediately drops down about 3 to 5 ms  with the same exact residents and number of residents in the region.  Then as the days pass, the total script time slowly increases  until after  about a week it has increased  3 to 5 ms.  If the region owner restarts the  region..total script time  does not seem to drop back down by 3=5 ms.  only see the decrease when the Lindens restart  or update the region. Just to give some actual numbers  of my region top script time total is 6.5 ms. and statistics total script time is 18- 19.5 ms.  this is a HUGE  difference !

  2. Yes i agree that Animats explanation only accounts for a very small portion of the discrepancy . The difference between the top scripts  time and the script time shown in statistics is  very large, in my region the difference is 6 ms total  v/s 18 ms total script time. 

    I have also noticed that restarting the region seems to decrease the statistics script time by about 3 ms in my region.  however this still leaves a discrepancy of  9 ms  between the two measurements. 

  3. Linden support ???  to fix this issue  and roll back the servers to the last version is needed Asap.

    You broke it....now please fix it back ! This is very upsetting

  4. Greetings.....No..Chrome will not run SL.  However  there is an altenate method , The chrome OS   has a "Developer mode "  that allows you to install a linux operating system that  can run in parallel with the Chrome OS. Then once Linux is installed   you can download a  64 bit  Singularity viewer for Linux. And install that to log into SL.

    However there are several  Acer chromebooks on the market now.   The only ones that have enough graphic performance for SL are Acer C720   with  a 4th generations intel processor(haswell)    or  a C720 with 5th generation intel processor)Broadwell)   The  one you   mentioned  will NOT work as it has a lower graphics  performance Tigra processor.

    So  if you buy and Acer Chromebook...make darn sure it has a 4th or 5 th generation  intel processor.  

    i have installed linux Unbutu  on 4 different Chrome books,,,added  singularity viewer  and   run SL in Mediun to high graphics.   here is a link to my YouTube video to see how SL looks on a Acer chromebook.


  5. Greetings,,,,,,having trouble getting llAttachToAvatarTemp(ATTACH_CENTER_1); to attach a hud object.  All of the Hud attach locations  fail silently.  It does ask   for permissions to attach... , i click yes... but then silently fails to attach.

    It works fine  on all other Attach points on the body....but fails at hud attach points.

    Anyone else seeing this issue:   or have a way to  make llAttachToAvatarTemp  command  work for hud attach points?

    thanks for any help....

  6. It can be  done using a vehicle script such as hellicopter script or airplane  script.  The root prim x axis will be the long vertical axis of rocket. Y axis  rotation used for pitch and x axis rotation used for roll.  This way the rocket can take off vertically....then pitch over  after it gets airborne ....    Banking/left /right  can be set with vehicle banking parameters.  There is a vehicle tutorial in the scripting Library under vehicles listing. Find any  free  basic vehicle  script with modify permissions and   modify to behave as a rocket.

    Have fun :)  


  7.   Problem 1 :Gaming level laptops ,(like SL needs to get  high  performance/ FPS ) , are inherently more expensive than  similar performance desktops.

    The second problem is that high performance laptops with high performance Nvidia dedicated graphics Chip generate  a lot of heat and use up the battery quickly  while in SL.  Yes..i said dedicated graphics "chip"  There is no graphics "card" in Laptops. Nvidia 550,650,750,850,950  are the min performance level that you need, The second digit indicates the performance level  for Nvidia graphics .  The first digit is related to the year it was made.  So a second digit of 5 or higher is what you want.

    The cheapest  alternative  way is to get a laptop using the newest Intel  I5 or I7 "5th generation"  cpu called"Broadwell

    This newest CPU has 2 advantages, very low power consumption of 15 watts ,(less heat longer battery life),   and has a much better performance Integrated graphics on board the same cpu  called hD 5500 or hd 6000.

    The trick is finding a laptop that uses this newest 5th generation version Intel cpu.  Since its new the makers tend to charge  more

    But soon, (by xmas), lots of laptops will be using Broadwell version.

    The HD 5500 and hd 6000  integrated graphics will give you ability to use HIGH  SL  graphics in most situations and still have reasonable FPS.  Have longer battery life and generate less heat.

    If you want to have  ULTRA graphics setting in SL,,,you will need a pc with separate Nvidia graphics Chip ver 550 or higher.

    Honestly you need to pay $1000 to $1200  mininum to get what you want for SL. Laptops under  $1000 will  most likely have low performance graphics chips  or older integrated graphics .

  8. Hi,  there is an option in all viewers to "Fly" if page-up is pressed....if not selected,  your avatar only  jumps on page-up.

    Because of what you just said about Singularity viewer results.....i suspect  you have  a  "stuck" page-up key  OR  \your PC "THINKS" page-up is pressed.

    Tying another keyboard is a good idea...   as was just mentioned by another  forum Helper.

  9. About 2 years ago I submitted a jira on false "collision detects" occuring  every  time  when crossing between sims in a flying vehicle. The jira was closed  shortly after and the reason given was that this was  already classified as a  " Maintence Bug" .

    (Many Airplane vehicles scripts  use a combination of collision detection and airplane speed/power to begin landing or  taxi  modes. So  if you happen to be flying slow at a sim crossing....the airplane can  falsely enter into landing/taxi mode)

    So...here we are 2 years later and no "maintence bug fix "  was ever done to resolve this.

    Has there been any news as to when this bug might get resolved?

    and yes..I do realize that the Linden staff rarely read or comment on forum postings :)

  10. Hi ,

    If you are the sim owner or estate manager, you can use  World...Region/estate.....Debug.......and choose  "Get top scripts"

    It may take a minute  or so to load all the acrive scripted objects in the region..........Find your object in that list...  select it....then click on the "Return selected "button.  Make sure only that 1 object is selected!!!... careful....:)

    If you are not sim owner or estate manager.....contact that person and ask them to return it using method i just described.

    good luck   :)
