  1. But never mind. I shan't trouble you all any more. This is the most unhelpful bunch of people I've encountered on line... well, ever. It's good to see "blame the victim" is a live and well. ---------------------------------------------------------- So now poor Rudy is a victim and everyone is blaming the victim. How about Rudy is too hard headed or too ignorant or lacks enough common sense to see that when the whole world appears to be upside down it just might be time to stand up on your feet? No one is blaming you for anything except that you are not accepting the help that has been offe
  2. But you are getting those simulator resources. Something in your system is not handling those resources quite like it should. In real life you might own a home. You pay taxes for city resources (roads, fire protection, police protection, educational opportunities, ect.). You also have water, sewer, and waste pick-up. But, let's say your water pressure is low and all your neighbors' pressure is fine. The city claims it has no leaks and the water pressure on it's system is at the proper level. But you don't believe them because it can't be a leak on your property because you have a new pl
  3. I believe you were asking this same question last evening but your post had no text in it. I took a guess on what you were asking about.......which is part of what you are asking right now. I posted a screenshot and a brief explanation on how to use camera controls. Maybe it will help since you are, apparently, using the official SL Viewer 3. http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Avatar/How-do-you-view-your-own-avatar-from-the-front/qaq-p/1995355/comment-id/12824#M12824
  4. The screenshot you posted is not really telling much about your computer except how it measures up to the "Windows Experience". In other words how well the computer will handle your operating system (in this case, Windows 8). Your system has an index score is 3.3 with the highest score being 7.9 (that's for Windows 7 but I'm sure it's the same for Windows 8). That score is determined by the lowest score of the various tests Windows goes through to analyze your computer's performance (graphics capabilities, RAM. CPU speed, read/write to hard drive speed, etc). It's an overall rating to give
  5. Huddles EZ Animator is the one I use. I've had it for years and I don't know where one might find it, or even if it's still sold (though I don't why it wouldn't be). It's primarily a dance animator that to load dances you simply detach and drag from your inventory to the ground, drag and drop the dances you want to add, take back into inventory and wear once again. You can have others join you in dances. It's so simple to use it's almost embarrassing. Search in-world. Maybe Market Place if you do that route (don't know about MP though).
  6. Done? Easy? I did read what you said in the original post and, believe it or not, I think I understood what you want. You want a shape in notecard form that you can "drag and drop" in appearance to alter (in your case) the face. Sounds easy. But I know from spending some 2 years altering my shape to get where I wanted it isn't easy. Each adjustment you make effects other parts of the shape.......even limiting the adjustments to the head only. Adjust the lips and maybe your chin changes a little, so you adjust the chin and the lips are not what you want.....back a forth you go without e
  7. The very first problem I see, and it's a big one, is how long is this notecard going to be? Do you realize how many different combinations of slider settings that can be made? Way more than just a few hundred, or even thousand.......millions is more what I think. Each slider setting effects the shape in other areas....change the nose and the cheeks change or change the head size and the ears change. How would anyone determine what a customer might want and might not want for a shape? You'd have the include a notecard pages long just to make a few options available......impossible to cover
  8. I forgot to post the link to the test site http://www.speedtest.net/ Distractions in RL..........sorry about that.
  9. Go here and run a test then post the results back here. My bet is you will test at something less than 800 kbps (or maybe right at 800 kbps). 800 kbps per second is 300 kbps above the SL viewer's default setting of 500 kbps. The SL viewer will go much higher than that (I believe somewhere around 3000 kbps but I haven't bothered to set my bandwidth that high even though my connection can handle up to 8000 kbps.........just no need since I rezz quickly in SL). You're confusing bytes with bits. The bandwidth speed is given in bits.......not bytes.
  10. It's the shape that determines your avatar's height (as well as other things like waist, legs, arms, etc) not your outfit. Well your outfit could cause a change but only if the shape for the particular outfit is different from the shape you are having this issue with. A shape is part of an outfit but, like a skin, if it's the same shape you had before you made a new outfit it won't change. Most shapes are copy, mod but no transfer so go to appearance and work with the shape sliders........if they won't move or change then the shape is no mod. Use a different shape (or create your own shape
  11. Try setting your bandwidth in preferences at 600 kbps (that's 75% of 800). Overwhelming your system's ability to render and all the other stuff involved with the SL environment that you might find yourself in when in-world causes problems that interfere with what can and cannot be rezzed in a timely manner. It also usually causes packet loss at your network and that is a whole new set of problems (including disconnects from the servers and crashes of the viewer). Obviously you don't understand that setting the bandwidth beyond what your connection can handle will lag your textures (and othe
  12. Racism is a word that, over the years, has become almost useless for defining discrimination. It's become a buzz word to evoke sympathy..........and that cheapens the meaning to a level that it's insulting to the people who truly experience discrimination solely to their race. Ethnic groups get lumped into racism.......the Irish are not a race, it's an ethnic group. The Jews are not a race. Muslims are not a race (though middle eastern is which is were the vast majority of Muslims live). All those groups have been discriminated against both in paste and today But just because the group m
  13. To add just a little bit to Theresa's post. The speed of your connection, I believe, you made an error. Bandwidth speed is not measured in bytes. It's measured in bits. A big difference since there are 8 bits per byte. But bandwidth meters measure bits because that is what is actually being sent to and from your computer/system.800,000 bits per second is pretty slow if you are using SL with any settings above about mid-range........and if you have voice enabled, or media enabled, or you have a third party IM program running, or maybe you have the forums open while trying to use SL it's no
  14. Since you have this "long experience" (to which I'm very much less than impressed........we could add your years and my years and have almost 14 years experience and it would all still be irrelevant) why not prove your system is up the task of rendering more than 6 avatars (your system being your computer, it's hardware, and your connection to the Internet). It's easy to give specs........just launch the viewer (log in or not, makes no difference) and under the "Help" menu click on "About Second Life". You'll see the basic specs. Copy those and paste back here. Had you done that little bi
  15. "... I've been in SL over six years and generally keep up with upgrades and have up-to-date, high-performance hardware and a good internet connection. ..." -------------------------------------------- The 6 years is irrelevant but I will say something ain't quite right somewhere in either the performance end, the updated upgrades or the Internet connection. Slow to rezz avatars is a pretty sure sign of texture lag. Texture lag is caused by less than adequate hardware or hardware that is not properly updated or an Internet connection that is less than capable of delivering the information
