  1. I don't think you can use cycles for SL textures? Can you?
  2. :matte-motes-asleep-2: I am thinking about getting a MAC Seriously, it is hard to decide. When I go to a boutique like Cyberpowerpc and put together my druthers, and then add a good monitor, it is about the same price as a well confitured MAC. I have never had a MAC, but I love my iPad, Apple TV, and iPhone and it would be nice to have them all play well together without a Google go between. I will do just about anything I can to get rid of SL lag and still wear whatever I want. It is really hard to get good PC help from home and eventually you have to have it (at least if you are like me). Pretty much the only software that I use these days are GIMP, Blender, Inkscape, Chrome, and Second Life, so probably any of the computers I am contemplating would work fine. But, this is an expensive thing and it has to last at least 3-5 years. Its like a car, you are stuck with it once you get it. BT
  3. I also can't install the SL viewer. Absolutely nothing happens when I click on the exe file. I have had some issues with other programs, but by right clicking on the file, and chooseing install as administrator, I have been able to install the program. Not so with SL, it does not matter how I install it. I was able to install Firestorm and it works just fine with Win8 BT
  4. Hey, Thanks for your input. I understand your concerns about tablets. You are correct too, that is why I am stumbling to find things that I can use from my iPad and then apply them to Second Life. So far, there are not very many. I can use the paint programs to make shirts and pants. That being said, I LOVE my iPad. It is the coolest piece of machinary that I have ever owned. I think they will get more powerful in time. I hope the developer of this app will continue to work with it, which is one reason I wanted to support him. If SL users get involved, someone will develop the means to get an animation from the iPad to SL, and I want to be there when they dissiminate the methods. thx
  5. Have you seen this? http://www.digital-sorcery.com/Touchanimator.html http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GYjLqkcUzcA&feature=youtu.be what are the chances that output from this could make its way into SL? It would be so nice to be able to at least start an animation while sitting in a coffee shop. BT
  6. This is currently on sale. Can this software be used for SL animations? Thx, BT
  7. I keep looking for this kind of info. Maybe I can't play SL on my iPad, but I am looking all the time for SL productive work that I can do. I can make shirts on my iPad, the problem is keeping the alpha layer when I mail it. BT
  8. Great photo, where is this skin
  9. WIth the latest beta release, my problem is no longer critical. However, it is still not as good as it was a few days ago before this started. I am losing some detail that I could see in the past. WHat kind of specs to I need to have ultra work for me all the time. i have a very good Fios internet connection and I am getting fps up to 80 at times, but it fluctuates down to 50 or so.
  10. Thank you. I have read lots of your suggestions already. I also downloaded the latest beta and the focus is ok now. It is still dark, but if I turn of the lowest light and shadow button, it helps. I followed several of the suggestions for tweaking my nvida card. I am not sure if it helps or not, but I will keep trying some of these recommendations. BT
  11. Yes, thanks. I cleared the cache enough that the cows came home...BT
  12. I have always been able to use the Ultra graphics setting on my computer. I have an i5 processor, 4 gb ram, and nvidia 275 card. Now, if I turn on ultra. my screen becomes a level darker and there are some weird motion artifacts with my cursor. I deleted the viewer and reloaded, now, nothing comes into good focus. My textures are our ot whack and what use to be small even tiles on my floor, are now tiles of various sizes. Basically, I can't use Viewer 2 anymore. I have tried both the beta and the regular version and neither works. So, I switched to Phoenix and everything is normal again. Except that I don't particullary care for the Phonix interface. I have filled out a help request to SL along with 3 updated comments with details of what has happened, but after 4 days, there is still no response. I noticed in the latest beta viewer that there were new graphics features and I suspected this to be the problem, maybe pushing my grahphics card past some threshold, but going back to the regular viewer did not fix the peoblem. I am also receivine warnings from Norton that Second Life is taxking my processor with high cpu usage. I think I am having some system resources screwed up with too many instances of SVHOST, but so far everything else seems to be in working order. This is very depressing to me, and after having a good visual in SL for so long, I can't use it any more with an ugly picture. Does anyone have any suggestions for improving my computer's performance with the SL viewer? Thx, BT
