SecondLife ~ "Your Avatar and Inventory, Not Loading ?" "My Secret Tips" "Shhhhh !!"

By Avatar JayR Cela

    Ok, your Avatar is a Cloud, your Inventory Refuse's to Load. You are Ruth'ed  Most of these problems are not your fault ! It is because the main SL Data Base, is ????

     Guess What ? The BackEnd -MySQL- DataBase.  ( Witch was never intended to Scale Out to the necessary requirements of a Virtual World Environment, In the First Place ) Is trying to accomplish a monumental task.

     So what are you to do ? Hmmm that's a good question.

    Yes clearing your Cache is the usual answer, suggested by most people. But that does not always solve the main problem.

    When the SL Server's, for one reason or another are unable to, load into the client's software, your Avatar, and or your Inventory ?

     You could Freak Out !  ~OR~  Piss and Moan, on the Main and Somewhat Worthless SL Forum Pages. ~OR~ I may be able to help.

     Here is my solution, It works for me,I hope it works for you as well.

     First thing you need to do before logging in, is turn off everything !!!!!  Everything !!!!!  Any possible extra feature's available in SL. Just kill, or turn them to the minimal settings. Draw distance is a big one here !! Set it !! as low as it will go, is best !

    Next step, log into a barren Sim.
    I am going to recommend this one.

Once you are there, immediately open your Inventory Window.

    Type in a random letter or vowel / A-E-I-O-U,one at a time,progressively.

At the first letter ( A ) you should see your Inventory begin to load, when it stop's loading, proceed to the next vowel ( E ) and so on.

   You may need to re-log numerous times. This seem's to depend upon how large your inventory is. Mine is approximately 42,000 items. And can sometime's take me several hours and numerous re-log's.

    Over and Over and Over Again, Eventually I get there.

Good thing I am Unemployed in RL, with quite a bit of free time right now, because otherwise I would never put up with this sort of crap !!

I'm having a problem where it says loading world and it stays like this for about 3-5 minutes. It never did anything and my pc is probably the fastest on the planet (I work for Nvidia and get free pcs often). T1 connection on the SL line. not sure what's going on or why it does this. I can't find a solution.In first person sometimes everything will go black and eventually a runtime error occurs. This never happened until the last few viewer updates.

Hi there :_)

I am assuming that you are using an official LL Viewer, if so. Have you tried some of the 3rd party alternative's, Phoenix - Kirstens - Dolphin - Imprudence ?

If you are still having problem's you can try looking me up while In-World, and I will see if we can figure it out together.

P.S. I may be out of town for a while starting today, please read my post dated 2/21/20011

Hi again Anonymous / my out of town plans have changed for the better / I an In-World quite often M-F_E.S.T. 10:00am to 8:00pm, weekends are touch & go.

If you still would like some advice or assistance solving your problem / just look me up. There are to many variables that may be causing what you describe, to attempt a fix via this blog.
But, I will be happy to help you while both of us are in SL ~and~or~ IRC

Hey yeah thanks for replying. I come into SL but rather late. I am at work right now. Until I get home I can explain a little more.

I did all the options above you had described. In fact I set up a second account using the same official viewer, and that one logs in rather fast and fine. This one with the problem has a lot of inventory but about 4000 less than it did last year (December and back) so I don't think it's an inventory issue.

As for that mouselook black screen issue where I can't see anything but the menus themselves, no idea what that is. My drivers are fine and up to date. That problem has actually happened on 3 separate computers, the last two previous official client versions gave a runtime error with that black screen issue the client gets occasionally but this new one doesn't give the runtime anymore, it just goes black. I can use the mouse to easily select logging out, so I assume it's that sidebar that is doing it. I do love this viewer though because of the outfit tabs, naming and a few other things I actually like better than the 3rd party ones.

That's about all the info I can think of right now. I'll be home soon but I wanted to post in case you read this again.

Yeah I think we have different hours (well sometimes for me. I just got home but I'm going to sleep. Hopefully I can talk to you so we can work this out but if you post any ideas, I'd appreciate it.
