Cubic Effect and not just the dress

While going over the zillion or so style blogs out there I came across Miss Haruka Kish. Japanese Second Life resident, style blogger, and fashion model. I quickly added her to my blogroll, and got busy going through her list of stores, hunting down some really cute items.

It’s always fun to find a SL resident from another place in the world, cause they have had a different SL experience then I have, and have come across places I haven’t found yet. Bonus if they blog, and are detail oriented like Miss Kish. She and I had the opportunity to chit chat a bit inworld via IM, and I am looking forward to following her blog Felice Haruka. I am a bit crazy for anything Japanese, I devour the culture in RL, so finding Japanese made content in SL is like nirvana for me. I love the Harajuku look especially, even though strict cosplay and its variant subset fashions for some reason really don’t appeal to me other then I like to see it on others. I hope to find more and blog it, but silly me is really picky and if something doesn’t have the “lines” I like, I instantly dismiss it.

Cubic Effect DressFelice Haruka blog is very high fashion, and I enjoyed finding a few stores I hadn’t heard of. I was limited on time, and Second Life has been very laggy recently so I only indulged in a few quick trips here are there. But I found the cutest cordoroy dress at Cubic Effect which I bought in bordeax, I quickly whipped out the boots I had been wearing since purchase-the LunaViola Boots with scrolls from PixelDolls and was pleased to find the purple matched. I love my color change boots. Just can’t seem to take them off. Another quick trip to Aden, and I found Spice Girl hair, so I purchased the Ginger Spice one. The dress I love for the texture. If it weren’t $390 while I am on a temporary…/me shudders….b.u.d.g.e.t… I so hate that word…then I would have purchase the other colors, and the sweater coat is which so lovely and nicely textured…I believe Haruka blogged it, if you wanna take a gander at it.
I promptly wore this outfit for two days! LOL. I have had severe graphics/texture problems within Second Life, this past week. I thought it was simply my graphics card. But now I am not so sure, I even movedmy chat/IM logs to a temp folder and then uninstalled all the Second Life clients..Regular, RC, Windlight…damn they sound like colas. Reinstalled the RC (release candidate) and still found I had this issue. it’s really horrible. I can barely get a thing done in SL like this. I have spent a great deal of time outworld trying to play around with my computer to get this fixed..and I still end up with settings that make the picture here at left make my eye make look runny. I even cleaned this up in photoshop.

Second Life has looked pretty crazy for me. I thought it was me and now I know its far worse. I have no clue how to fix it. I am not that tech savvy when it comes to this sort of thing. Suggestions anyone? Here’s the problem..in Pictures.

This one was when it started.. I simply put on a Last Call Jacket over my Armidi Dress…and I get this.

Now I am thinking, something is horribly wrong with my graphics card.

Here’s what I see around me…when it’s not so bad…

This is a tree..A mangrove tree from Hearts Garden Center next to my patio.

This is what it’s like trying to build:

Now here’s the problem..it’s not just me..last night Gary and I squeezed into a photobooth to take some pictures in Tableau. Gary had to take the pictures as there was no way I could take them with this issue..still thinking its me. So everything went great he took some fun pictures..until suddenly he started to see what I see…

This is Gary’s Photo sent to me in a postcard from Second Life..This was how I was seeing my av at the time..cept I also saw him this way but purple with green hair..and over time the whole sim deteriorated to this texture.

Ok so what have I done about it? Well, I had rebaked, relogged, cleared cache, cleared browser, scan disc, defrag, spyware scan, virus scan, deleted SL, reinstalled sl, I have updated drivers, and rolled back drivers, and updated drivers-it makes no difference, I have adjusted settings, updated windows, updated microsoft, consulted my graphics card support database, and SL database..blah blah blah. and I still get it. I am using a crap machine, a GeForceFX 5200 I think, and if I go into the control panel for it I reboot. I also have had the computer reboot when trying to open SL. I can make this go away on my av by changing skins, editing appearance, changing clothes. But it still comes back, and I can’t change the sims now can I..those textures always end up looking like that. I can tp somewhere and have it all cleared up as soon as the tp complete but eventually it comes back to looking like this.

Any ideas out there? How can I fix this? This is what someone should look like when they have spent too much time in free sex resorts..not me.

  1. That’s not just you hon. I had that problem a while back with one of the viewers but then the next rc fixed it. Try going back to the version that worked?

  2. I got around to rolling back to the last one, only to start it up and get a pop up saying I HAD to install the new one..again. so I did..must have been something wrong with the last new one, as (knock on primwood) so far so good.

  3. Thanks Whimsy for bloging about my blog!
