  1. I made a group, set the land to the group, then added a friend to the group as an officer. Not only couldn't she set it as home, but it wouldn't allow her to use any of her huds. Scripts were turned off. I didn't see any way to turn them on. Everything was grayed out on the panel.

  2. I've seen other posts about this (all several years old) but they all seemed to be caused by older computers that can barely run SL. This is not my case. I have a 3 month old Asus ROG Strix I7 with 16G Ram and a GeForce RTX2060 graphics card, along with Intel UHD graphics. This thing runs on ultra settings with almost no lag. Anyway, starting a couple of hours ago I get this message if I try to use Firestorm or the Second Life viewer:

    "Firestorm is unable to run because your video card drivers did not install properly, are out of date, or are for unsupported hardware. Please make sure you have the latest video card drivers and even if you do have the latest, try reinstalling them.

    If you continue to receive this message please contact the Second Life support portal."

    Now we all know that non premium members get zero support from LL so I'm hoping someone here might have an answer. I googled it the first time it happened, then made sure my drivers were up to date (they are), then I tried to reinstall them manually but that didn't work. So I uninstalled the Intel drivers, restarted my computer, and it worked. I figured that the driver somehow got messed up and all was good. But the next time I tried to load Second Life, it happened again. This time uninstalling and reinstalling the Intel driver didn't work so I tried the NVidia driver and that fixed it. Then it was fine... until the next time I tried to log in when it happened again. Has anyone run into this before and can point me in the right direction?

  3. I sell multi linkset homes and I'm having a hard time finding a reliable demo rezzer for my customers to see and walk through the houses. IM me if you know of a good one or if you might be interested in creating one.

  4. As a builder in SL I rely on the CTRL-ALT- arrow keys to cam around as I build. It's an invaluable tool that's become second nature to me.

    Recently I had to reset my Windows 10 computer and now this feature doesn't work either in Firestorm or the SL viewer. I tried it with a different computer and it still works so it has to be something in my computer settings. I have Linux Mint on the same computer and it works the same in Windows 10 or Linux. Linux was installed after this problem occurred so that can be ruled out as the culprit.

    I read in an older thread that other programs can 'capture' hotkeys and make them no longer work in other applications. My thinking is that this is what happened during the reset. My question is, how can I find out what program is using them and how can I fix it? Firestorm is one of the first programs I installed after the reset, and there's nothing on my computer that wasn't there before the reset. Even less in fact. 

    I have to get this fixed. I tried building without it and the only way I can work is with the rather clunky on screen camera controls and I'd rather give up building than use them. I'm hoping someone else ran into this problem and can offer some insight.


  5. I realize this is an old thread but I'm having a similar issue. I recently reset my computer (Windows 10) and now I can no longer use ctrl-alt along with my arrow keys to zoom and rotate the camera. I'm a builder and I've been using these for years. Trying to build without it is like having one hand tied and I really to to correct it.

    I use Firestorm but I tried it with the SL viewer with the same results, so it has to be a setting that was changed during the reset. I'm not real computer savvy but with a little help I can usually correct most things. I'm guessing that keyboard shortcuts have captured these keys, as someone mentioned earlier in the thread. My question is, how do I check the keyboard shortcuts and disable them to see if it will fix it? Tried a google search but couldn't find a way to disable or change any of them.

  6. My apologies if this has already been asked, but I couldn't find any info on it. I need to make a change in every item in my Viewer Managed MP store but nothing works using the MP Manage Listings anymore. I get an error that one or more items could not be changed and it turns out to be all of them. Is there another way to do this using the VMM system?

  7. Thanks for the tips. The tank is 35 x 18 x 10 so not small. I tried making a sculpted grid but I couldn't get the water texture to work with it. After consulting the customer we decided to use a hollow prim so the water texture can be seen on the sides from the inside and outside. Not ideal but the best that can be expected I suppose.


  8. Working on a large water tank project for a customer. They want to be able to walk into the water but asked why the texture vanishes when they are inside the prim. I explained that textures go on the outside faces and when inside the prim you aren't looking at hose faces, but they really want it to look like Linden water so I told them I'd ask if there was a way to do it. Anyone know if this is possible?

  9. It's difficult to predict what house will fit on a parcel. What I do is offer a footprint to my customers. Basically I unlink the foundation prims from the house, then link them together and give this to anyone who asks me what size parcel they'll need for a certain build. This way the customer can try the footprint on land they're considering to see how the house will fit.

  10. Looking for a sculpt for a log table. What I need is a section of a large log cut to make a flat table top with irregular edges. I want to be able to texture the top to look like the rings and the sides with bark or peeled wood. Must be full perm with maps. If anyone is interested in creating this or knws where I can purchase one please reply or contact me inworld. Thanks!

  11. I use Firestorm and every now and then when I type my font comes out as Japanese or Chinese characters and I have to relog to reset it to English. I know I must be hitting some combination of keys to change it but I have no idea which ones. Someone told me a while ago how to fix it but i can't remember. Anyone out there know how to change it back without relogging?
