  1. Oh SPLENDID!! I just d/l'd the new improved knock your socks off veiwer on my laptop and I can't open it because it only runs on 32bit setting!!!! Dammit!!! My lappy doesn't HAVE a 32 bit setting!! NOW what am I supposed to do? What on earth are you blathering about? If you are running 64 bit Windows it runs 32 bit applications fine. SL has always been provided as a 32 bit binary, and that includes TPV's. You may find some 64 bit Linux builds but thats about it. BTW, a 64 bit app is not necessarily better. They will consume more memory due to larger pointers.
  2. Why on earth are you wanting to open port 80 or port 443? SL is NOT a web server and you sure dont need https (thats what 443 is for) open. You shouldn't open ports randomly. If you install SL normally then rules are added to the windows firewall anyway.
  3. There are no such things as PNG textures. All textures are converted to jpg2000. PNG that cause glitches are due to the alpha channel issue. If a texture is not supposed to have transparency DONT uploaded textures from a PNG
  4. Looks like this will never work for me unless they host servers in Aussie then which is a bit sad. I get pings over 200 ms to the USA using pingtest.
  5. I would guess it would be more secure as you are not actually rendering anything in the web browser. If SL had always been like this then copybots could not exist.
  6. So a person who lives in the U.S., who has been a member of SL for 6 years, who has a quad core computer, high-level graphics card and 6.5 mpbs cable internet-- for some reason "doesn't qualify" to test the system. Seriously? Yeah yeah yeah, we all know you've been here for yonks. I doubt they are selecting individuals from that page anyway, just some misterious system requirements. My guess is that they have a limited number of connections BUT they are wanting to demo the page as it will finally appear. I agree it would be nice if they were a bit more specific as to what are the requirem
  7. Instead of amusing yourself, try rereading the post. If you got a Join button then you didn;t qualify (for some unknown random reason) if you got an Explore then you did.
  8. If you look at the mesh project you will notice that included with that is a change in the maximum size of the prim to 64x64x64
  9. They have simply changed the naming scheme. I think its month.day.year.buildnumber
  10. "MOAP is indeed a great idea." No one goes for SL for reading webpages on a prim. And that´s the onyl benefit. Yeah, it´s a nice techie idea. But there are zillions of nice techie ideas whicha are...simply useless. Linden Lab has tons of them. MOAP can be used for much more than just displaying web pages in SL. As a prim itself can act as a web server it is possible to do interesting things like using text box forms for enering text, display scripttime generated text in all maner of fonts, etc.
  11. You should follow Kelly Linden's twitter. He's the one fixing that. This was on his twitter on 30th Sep Woot! Mono2 in SL serialization errors appear fixed! Time for QA!
  12. The move to XMPP sounds great. It will make the addition of SL chat to other IM clients much easier, perhaps even trivial! What would be really cool is if you could incorporate a gmail style chat interface on the dashboard for those of us that just want to chat without having to be inworld. I'm looking foward to the Mono bug being finally fixed. I havn't really noticed that moving the object rezzing onto a different thread helping things but its all good improvements. Keep up the good work.
  13. Before you start playing around with RLV and the #RLV folder you really need to read up on how it works. Check out Marines blog (http://realrestraint.blogspot.com) and in particular the sections on Object sharing Firstly .. modify permisions even if you are running a RLV client does not give anyone the ability to view your inventory. What RLV can allow is access to a special directory (#RLV) that you must create. Setting this up is not trivial so again, read up from Marine's blog. Scruffy
  14. My main account has been temp banned for a violation of the traffic gaming rules (fair enough you might think) I would of thought, that a parcel that is not listed in search would not pose a problem. It's not like i am a vendor, seller or nightclub owner. it is just a plot of land where myself & a few friends can change clothes and play our hud based game in peace. The plot itself has only a wall surrounding the perimeter at ground level, and a small office space at 3000 meters. ----------------------------------------- If what you are saying is true, why are you bothering to use bots t

Post the report I'd be quite interested to read it. By the sounds of it you haven't bothered to see what is actually shared with shared media.
