Re: tour script has unresolvable error

With the timer(), even a time of .01 or .001 causes enough of a delay just in calling the timer to cause the script to pause approximately 1/4 second The minimum time for a timer in OpenSim is 0.5 seconds, so calling llSetTimerEvent() with anything less than 0.5 will result in a 0.5s timer. I don't...

Re: tour script has unresolvable error

Using the timer will work too, but the advantage of using linked messages is that you don't have the minimum timer delay for each iteration - it's pretty much instant instead.

Re: tour script has unresolvable error

We have encountered this issue a lot in the RezMela system, which is often processing large volumes of data. It's a quirk of OpenSim, and unfortunately there's often no easy fix. The technique I use in most cases is to store all the data to be processed in a list, and to use a linked message (from t...

Re: Krull Kitty's Scripting Course

Hi Krull. Can I suggest you enclose your code samples in "code" blocks to preserve formatting? It's the button labelled "</>" in the toolbar above the message editing box. Or you can do it manually by putting the code between [ code ] and [ /code ] tags. This is how indented code appears with those ...

Re: Teleporting to my home

There are lots of different ways you might not "see yourself properly". You might be a cloud, you might have wearable layers that appear grey, you might have attachments that are not rezzing properly, you might have attachments appearing in the wrong places, you might even be completely invisible, a...

Re: Interesting script behavior with huge implications

Many thanks, Oren and Ilan. That gives us a lot more breathing space. Regarding the number of prims, we're already limiting that to practical numbers based on several factors, so that's not an issue. The reason the RezMela engine stores relatively large volumes of data is that each object in a scene...

Re: Interesting script behavior with huge implications

Thanks, Oren. Unfortunately, the data is very dynamic, not at all suitable for serialised notecard storage. And besides, I don't believe it's possible to create a notecard without first storing that data in RAM in its entirety. Would there be any possibility of increasing that limit? 500KB is really...

Re: Interesting script behavior with huge implications

As far as I've been able to determine, the issue is that scripts are reset on region restart if their data occupies above a certain amount of RAM. Exactly how much that is would be time-consuming to determine, and would be of little use in practice because llGetUsedMemory() etc are not currently imp...

Can't embed landmarks or calling cards in a notecard

It seems that trying to embed landmarks or calling cards in a notecard that's uploaded to Kitely Market generates errors about missing assets. This is a shame, because it means that people will have to copy/paste text rather than click links in notecards such as "read me" cards. People coming from S...
