  1. One word of caution...Be sure to check the power supply requiriments of any new video card . look to see How many Watts and amps your current pc power supply can supply can handle.. Many times when you want to put a higher performance graphics card...you also need to replace the PC power supply with a higher output power version. The PC makers generally tend to put the lowest possible power output power supply that they can get away with. Good luck with your upgrade dd
  2. Both of those PC you showed with links are terrible...overpriced and/or poor video graphics. Here is example of a nice gaming PC for $999 ,,,,you can find many more like this at this price range or even a bit lower. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=9085260&CatId=1886 Try to get a 4th generation Intel processor...I5 or I7 either will work fine for SL. Be sure to get Nvidia graphics with 2nd number of model number 5 or greater... 650 ,660,670...or 750 ,760 or 770 The 2nd number indicates performance level. If you like it to turn on fa
  3. Ok... Create an object/ (rez a prim) Set Prim type to Sphere. In the object edit menu choose the contents tab and left click on New Script. When new script window opens...copy and paste the following 2 lines into the Touch Event section. llSetBuoyancy(0.75); llSetStatus(STATUS_PHYSICS, TRUE); Save the script and close script window and edit window. Left click on ball . Play ball Note : in the prim edit window....you can choose the "features" tab and set prim Material to rubber to get a nice bouncy effect as mentioned before.
  4. Greetings Two things......first when you are NOT logged in,......preferences will show the IM to Email checkbox as grayed out and not checked.......But when you ARE logged in...that box will be editable and Checked. This is normal. Second.....The problem of not recieving IM to Emails started around July 1st...and i did file a Jira report on this issue. The lindens checked into it with me and several others that were seeing the same issue...and in all cases the issue was caused by our internet providers.....AT&T in my case....but also other internet providers. AT&T was
  5. Try this... After changing the desired value...move your cursor into ANY OTHER value box and left click. Then it should stick. dd
  6. Greetings.. The short answer is Yes...that PC will work just fine in SL (assuming you also have a good internet provider connection speed) dd
  7. To "rez"/create a new "prim" simply right click on the ground or floor and choose "create" from the pie menu. The cursor will change to a "majic wand".....left click on floor or ground and you will "rez"/ create a little box called a prim. Then follow the previous instructions i gave you. You need to be in a parcel /sim/region that you have "Create object " permissions.
  8. Marek.........Rez a new prim then right click on the new prim and choose "edit". Select the "contents" tab in the edit window. Cick the "new script" button. Close the edit window. move your cursor over the new prim..the cursor should change from an "arrow" to a "little hand" Did your cursor change to the "little hand"? While it is a "little hand" do a left click with your mouse. You should see the word "touched" in chat. Do you?? If this works....but other things you "touch"" dont work...then I suspect it is some kind of permissions issue.
  9. Yes i can confirm that the Unable to upload scripts is always a Region issue...either the region has too many scripts running or the region needs to be restarted or both. Ask to have region restarted. Else just go to a different region to do your scripting.
  10. Greetings... It would be helpful if you say what your internet connection speed test shows? and if you are using Wireless internet connection? and what your Firestorm graphics are set to in preferences. Draw distance will have the biggest impact on FPS. Try using eithernet cable connection in place of wireless.......and set draw distance to 256 or less. That Pc should be capable of ULTRA mode in graphics and still have good FPS in most situations. Make sure you are connected to the battery charger while testing to make sure the battery save is not throttling you back. Turn off any ant
  11. I have explained in great detail.....I have nothing further to say except good luck with whatever you choose.
  12. Well...its 2 Nvidia performance steps up...so yes its better than the 820m. i would guess it would allow you to run SL viewer in High graphics mode. 700 series v/s 800 series...just means its 1 year older. You should still consider a desktop tower in place of laptop.......for many reasons...another important reason is using SL will use max power from both your CPU and GPU...this translates into battery running down very quickly and producing lots of HEAT which can shorten the life of any laptop........usually when laptop CPU sees low battery or Hi temperature it will first increase fan
  13. There are still reports that this problem is seen on many different mail providers. this problem is not limited to any 1 mail provider. Also the fact that my Scripted objects in SL can still send instant Messages that get forwarded to my email account when i am not logged in proves that this problem/bug is a secondlife bug ...not a mail provider issue. Same is true for group notices as those are also forwarded to my email provider when i am off line. It only fails when residents on my friends list send me IM when I am offline.
  14. Hi Barry... the nvidia 820M gpu is entry level performance graphics meaning lowest performance. It will work but you would probably be limited to Medium viewer graphics in many situations. the second digit in the Nvidia number "2" in this case indicates graphic performance. For Ultra mode viewer graphics that number needs to be 5 or greater. the M in 820M means that is a graphics chip soldered to the laptop mother board ..so is not replaceable/up-gradeable like a graphics card would be. I would strongly recommend you Buy a full size/tower desktop PC to use for SL. Because Its cheaper
  15. I have created BUG-6591 report of this issue. So now we wait for Lindens to take action hopefully... https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/BUG-6591
  16. Yes ..i am seeing the same problem........I get off-line IM to Emails from scripted objects or group notices ...... but Not from individual Avatar IMs when i am off-line. Started about July 1st. ....or perhaps its a random thing i.e. sometimes fails to work. If it keeps up..i'll submit a bug report........or if someone has already done so please lets us know. thanks.
  17. Drake ask to see how the C720 ChromeBook performs in a busy SL Dance Club. Here is the Video........
  18. I thought some of you might be interested in seeing How SL looks using a $200 Acer C720 ChromeBook with Ubuntu operating system installed. Here is the Video on Youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCXLZlXttjI
  19. Could be a overheating problem? Check cpu fan and video card fans. Secondlife requires more cpu and video card cooling than any video game. Cean up any dust build-up from cpu heat sink or video card heat sink. secondly...Try installing Cool Viewer or Singularity as they both use less resources than SL viewers
  20. Thank you for that last post Perrie I was getting worried with so much initial negative response. First ,I would like to tell you that this last week is my very first experience with linux or Umbutu. But between a few YouTube videos and a bit of googling I managed to convert both my Chromebooks to dual boot mode,(chrome os and ubuntu). You mentioned that 95 % of us would need to go thru a steep learning curve. I agree BUT...... What do you think the percentage is ......of us who would secretely like to know how to use Linux? I have loo
  21. I can see you are not up to date on 4th generation intel integrated graphics (haswell) If you look up performance marks of intel Hd 4600....you will find it about same as Nvidia 650. as to noob...level.....yes ...it takes the ability to follow simple instructions........but most SL residents are capable of this.
  22. Buy a $200 Accer C720 with Intel 4th generation 2955U cpu with Haswell integrated 4600 HD graphics. Go to this youtube page and watch how to install Linux ubuntu into the Chromebook https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_MuVwJq_XQ I suggest you use the 13.10 version of ubuntu called "saucy". I chose the "unity" desktop I suggest you download "software-center" (This is done in terminal mode "sudo apt-get install software-center") Ubuntu is 64 bit so....you will need to download a 64 bit LINUX viewer for SL. I used Singularity 64 bit linux viewer....it will
  23. For Nvidia cartds.....the 2nd digit indicates the performance /speed of the graphic card. 625 is very low performance card. (lower numbers for 2nd digit is lower performance and vice versa) I would recommend that if your buying a new card ..... to get at least a 550,650 or 750 . these can be found for just under $100 usd. But you need at least a 400 watt power supply. 500 watt PS would be better.
  24. Perhaps you did not fully understand what Monti was trying to explain to you.....as it is the owner of the parcel that can force all TP to a location of his/her choice...IF they have intentionaly set parcel permissions like this. If they dont check that box in tp landing coordinates...then you can TP to any position you like. (provided you are not banned) Now if you are looking for some way to circumvent the parcel owners permissions settings...then you are trying to hack the system.
  25. I think you need to proof read your last sentence and edit it perhaps?
