New Client Released to GP3Ds … initial reports

As promised, SamSyn released a new client last night, and we have some reports:

Hey hey!

The new client seems to be much better shape than the previous.

The inventory is still loading very fast and haven’t noticed any problems with quest kits popping up. I am, however, still having problems loading 4 of my objects in inventory (see picture) that are just in the “loading…” state for the entire duration of being logged on.

I had no problems with compass, changeme, or communicator windows tonight opening on command. ‘tu

Icons for objects seem to load fast now and haven’t seen issues with “Borrowed” objects yet either.

All of my favorite places migrated on the previous client, and I still have them all and are organized the way I had them previously as well.

That seems to be it for now.. nicely done!


Thanks Team Phoenix,

This latest client update (v18039) seems to have fixed a lot of bugs!!

both quest kits and theredocs seem to be back to normal
inventory loads much faster
in flying around with BABS, we both noticed that world assets/scenes are also loading very smoothly and quickly
even the funfinder bar came up right away when i logged in

Only problem I had was that when I first logged in under the new client, I was unable to teleport anywhere — it kept saying that the place was too busy (too many people), and to try again later. Had another GP3D summon me and did not have any teleport problems after that.

Still seems a little funky with the opening of communicator and change me. Will check client tomorrow and see if this is improved.

One request: Could you possibly load Canyon Terrace, as several of us GP3D-1, GP3D-2, and I) have houses there. Would like to do some There House testing and see how it looks. No problem, I you can’t get to it. Just a suggestion! The other zone that would be helpful would be the Lyceum (and it’s hosting area). Since most all other zones are owned by someone, perhaps we can have the Lyceum zone available for hosting GP3D get togethers and even welcome party for the next batch of GP3D’s. Would give us an area (other than Dune Valley Track) to test events from.

Thanks for considering this and we’ll get on testing this new client and let you know what we find.

Excellent work!! We really appreciate it!

…not all is rosy YET…

Ok so last night I installed the client. Change me opened fine. I was in for about 15 minutes. Inventory looked good. Quest kits looked good.

This morning I went in again. My prop stayed on my head overnight!
I was talking to migman he told me that communicator was not working. So I tried that out… I think it was mentioned in the mail that it was not working. It did not open but all the other toolbar things under that toolbar menu worked OK. Trying Change Me again resulted in another non opening of the Change Me. A picture is attached. I was only in for a about 5 minutes.

I logged back on. My prop had fallen off. and my change me is not opening again. Perhaps opening communicator hosed the change me?

..and finally this, which puzzled us quite a bit…

4.0 out of 5 stars One for the cellar, October 16, 2008
By Twal (UK) – See all my reviews
This review is from: Wolf Urine Lure-32 oz (Kitchen)
One is immediately drawn to this vintage by the colour, which is an elegant, pale straw hue with an appealing peachy fruit on the nose. It has an incredibly effervescent bead — the whole glass teams with bubbles — culminating in a frothy layer at the head.

The palate has panache, with a firm, mineral acidity that cuts through a rather elegantly styled, poised meaty presence. As with most Chateau Deerbuster products, this has the signature leafy-fresh character, which softens into a slight rancid feel towards the end.

Even though it has a rather short and crisply defined finish, I still believe this has the composition and acidity to age well in the cellar of any self-respecting urine connoisseur.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good and bad…, November 20, 2009
By J. Laury “Zombie Killer” – See all my reviews
This review is from: Wolf Urine Lure-32 oz (Kitchen)
This product gets three stars and here’s why:

Good: This is soooooooo much easier than trying to get the Wolf Urine directly from a Wolf. Wolves are, from my experience, VERY possessive of their urine. Until the advent of the The Mountain Men’s Three Wolf Moon Short Sleeve Tee (which acts to calm the wolves) let’s just say vicious bites and deep lacerations were the norm when trying to “milk” the wolves of their urine (how else can you get it?). Even with the The Mountain Men’s Three Wolf Moon Short Sleeve Tee it was never easy. This product had changed all of that!

Bad: As a lure this thing sucks. I can’t even get a hook into it. It’s liquid! HELLOOOOOO??? Who makes a lure out of liquid??? Shiny plastic, rubber, or metal, sure, but liquid? No, this is a serious design flaw.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tell those wolves to piss off!!!, January 8, 2011
By thomas – See all my reviews
This review is from: Wolf Urine Lure-32 oz (Kitchen)
Don’t kill the messenger here, but Wolf Urine will not solve all of your problems. We’ve all seen it locked behind glass at Walgreens, the evidence room of your local police precinct, or under your parents’ bed. The fact is there’s better products out there that are not only better for you, but better for the environment. I’m talking about Jack Nicholson’s urine.

I know what your thinking, because Jack Nicholson’s urine has given me clairvoyant powers and this allows me to fantasize about Clair Danes for days without fatigue. You owe it to yourself and your case worker to spend that windfall from your pull-tabs marathon on Genuine Jack-Whizz(tm). Or, if the caste system of your local village prohibits it, you might procure yourself some John Cougar Urine. The only celebrity urine that is guaranteed to give you rickets.

God Bless

Oh wait, those last ones were from here. Never mind.


P.P.S It has come to my attention that some people are too cheap to buy said product from Amazon, and are attempting to convince the wolves to give it to them for free. This is almost like piracy, but not, I guess. Do not try this at home!

  7. #9 by PlAiNHaVoC on 2011.09.28 - 5:56 pm

    HI Michael,

    This is a bit off topic, as it references ThereIM. First, an opinion. The ThereIM client is amazing, and with a small enough package, would be great to use on smartphones, tablets, etc. Would you ever consider a release of the sourcecode for it to be ported to various other systems? Legally retaining all of your rights, this could be a large boom of users that will pay for this type of communication. I know you and the other designers have a lot on your hands, just please consider this for the future. There is a large world out there that would willingly help your software hit every piece of tech available. Paying people to do this would not only be more overhead, but slower (No offense to the staff, it’s just a matter of numbers).
    Thank you for your insight!

    OK ive got a good question for ya MR Wilson,Of course i havent been in game for awhile and i forgot my password for my avie,and i no longer use AOL which my e-mail is that that i used to become a member i am now at, my question is how do i go about getting my password for my avie to reclaim my inventory ,the avies name was CHARGERGT1972 and i would also like to use THERE IM but of course i cant because i cant remeber my password ,so who can i contact to get this little problem taken care of, if youy need more info contact me at the e-mail i gave to post this comment, TY

    • #11 by spaz0ut on 2011.09.28 - 5:56 pm

      just use your current e-mail.

    • #12 by Philip Thereian Key on 2011.10.03 - 10:30 am

      James, AOL email accounts never close. Even if you haven’t used it in a long while you can still log back in to get you email. Log back in your email, then follow the lost password off the site. Otherwise you are going to have to wait till they set up the recovery process they have already discussed, where you will have to be charged for them to research your account with some kind of proof of identity. Doubtful they will start that process till after the relaunch.

      If you don’t remember your AOL pass, you can complete their lost pass form. Good luck. ‘tu

    Just a note to say that Team Phoenix has ‘rocked out’ another winner with their latest client release (9/27/11). It has made my final missing inventory items magically reappear and seems to have improved the loading of communicator and change me.

    This team has it’s ‘A’ game running and more of the world seems to appear loaded everytime I log in.

    Keep up the good work and hope everything keeps going so smoothly!!

    Was looking at the places list on There and I seen my zones are back on it. YAY!!
    But I was wondering if anyone knew was Durrett’s Canyon and Guymon’s Gorge both in Sirocco were going to be brought back or was it they just managed to get on the list and will be removed later.

      Why is it that so many expect an update every week? Don’t get me wrong, they are awesome when we do get them and the photo’s MW posts with them are excellent. I just think those of us that are not GP3D’s shouldn’t be hounding MW about updates, I mean the GP3D’s are doing an excellent job updating through MW’s comments here on his blog. Am I wrong?

  15. #25 by DodgeBoy101 on 2011.09.28 - 7:57 am

    I downloaded There IM, tryed logging on and it did not work, so I un-installed it, restarted computer, installed There IM again. Tryed, it did not work, so I changed my password, and used my new password There had given me. It also did not work, so I looked at my email, realized I had not β€œre-verified” my account, so I did so. Then I tryed to log-in There IM again (using my password There gave me), it still did not work. So I got mad and changed my password again, and just tryed using the new password I was just given, and it still isnt working. I am getting very mad and frustrated with this. So I’m only gonna ask… is this a problem with, There IM (ect.), or is this a problem with something I am doing wrong? PLEASE LET ME KNOW! I’m about to take the freakin’ computer and throw it in the street! lol.


    • #26 by DodgeBoy101 on 2011.09.28 - 10:07 am

      I will try to un-install There IM again, and re-install it for the 3rd time. I will let everyone know weather this works or not.

    Video of Explore island Nada.

    Starting on Sutter’s camp and failing down to take out the hoverboat.
    Flying around to Zona Island.
    From there along the coast to the paintball and fune zones
    From there to the houses on Incognito flying between the palm trees.
    Close by Enoki Hollow turn to Maidenflight and visit.
    Bali Hai from there a walke to Aero Lounge.

    I hoop you like it.
    I am not trying to make people sick of bad feelings.
    But some people ask me to show the world what we have now.
    A lott stil needed to rebuild.
    But this island what I know its looks ready.

    9. “There2” would include some updates shortly after re-launch; There2_DX9, There2_ OSX, some additional hi-res viewing options and 2 new activities.

    I am just a little curious about what those 2 new activities might be….Has anyone noticed yet what these might be in world?

        That was mentioned in the survey way back when. Just curious if any of the GP3D’s have come across them yet, possibly won’t be available right a way but was a little curious.

    • #36 by Philip Thereian Key on 2011.10.03 - 10:37 am

      Hey Ant, some of the 3DGPs have already posted some DX9 res pics in Facebook groups. Both in ThereIM and The Therein Community groups. Nothing on the OSX front though.

    Well, I’m so glad to be back in There! In fact, yesterday I took one of my favorite Bacio rides along the path (ridge) from Kantana Point (no buildings there yet) to where The Lyceum will eventually be. I’ve always enjoyed spritely bouncing along the terrain.

    I’ve had very few problems aong the way so far. Since I’m running Chrome, after I log in, I wind up with a few windows from Windows Internet Explorer popping up and blocking the There windows. After I minimize them, I can then enlarge the There window and proceed. But, I’m even able to access Groups from within There and even have “created” one of my original groups — Basya_Bacios !! (Check my profile and join the group if you would like!)

    While riding my Bacio along that path from Kantana, I tried the User Cam and had a problem. After trying a few of the settings, I closed it down, but myy GPS (am using BTST’s GPSD which is running just fine!) then faded (almost ghostly). I then froze and was thrown out. I logged back in and everything was ok!

        @superdale, sorry I said you sounded like you were a jerk, you just hit a nerve with me. MW, Samsyn, Bruce and Mackie have been working around the clock to get there open. None of us know what it must take to do this. I am honored to be a GP3D but there are bugs that must be fixed and I know it has to be easier to get a few feedbacks opposed to thousands for the same problems. I know it is hard to be patient. I had the same feelings too, but I kept them to myself. It shouldn’t be too long before you are all back in There and having fun.

    • #67 by mmeodiles on 2011.09.27 - 1:44 am

      Ok, I am one of the gp3d peeps…so I will do you a favor and do what you ask….I will tell you…The world stinks…It simply stinks…It’s horrible…so You should not go…it stinks…remember..You surely don’t want to go to somewhere that stinks!!! πŸ˜›

      The ‘World’ looks excellent. We’re just ironing out the bugs now, but it’s running better and faster than ever. There are many new and useful options, making things much easier, such as an option you can check where the ALT key becomes an instant switch from action-mode to normal-mode and back again. The skies are blue, the birds are chirping, the cacti still have collisions for whatever reason. The palm trees beckon surreal tranquility. Positive ions fill the air. Ahhhhh.

        @faunarose and Basya,
        Thank you for the compliments, I am back doing what I love to do. My pazes are on the Old Island of Balize. The island nect to Ssan Dimas. I will be in world soon and put them out again. I pick them up when I am not in world.

        Amxscott purchased the hood that used to be Belize prior to closing and it was known at the time of closing as Avalon_Island.

    • #80 by Cyndi Yonkers on 2011.09.28 - 1:33 am

      @ant1977 yes I know amxscott owns that island now, i said use to be balize island. I am just using a spot on the island until there opens again. If you didn’t know we can drop pazes almost anywhere atm. It is a great island.

    Roaming around as a GP3D. I am noticing more and more being added. So far everything loads really fast for me, including my inventory. I have Dx8 on my desktop, and dx9 on my laptop. There is a difference in how things look, including the avies. With 9 we have a more glossy look, (if thats the right word). Not sure if its just me but also most things seem a bit more vibrant. I found a temporary Avie Sacrafice and decided why not rofl.. Yes we still bounce, roll, and flop like rag dolls! Not sure what else to tell you all here, other then while exploring I did find a snowman, Samsyn. This was on Sunday, just so you all know, they are working hard at getting things the way they need to be. Thank you for all you do MW and crew.

    • #82 by mmeodiles on 2011.09.27 - 1:47 am

      Hey there Mimi…., That gives me an idea…I use Dx8 for the computer because it runs faster…but now I will go try it on the laptop to see what happens with Dx9…cool beans!!! Thanks for this idea heheheh

  39. #88 by xeroxcopy on 2011.09.25 - 5:59 pm

    If i recall correctly does not support multiple core processors, and 8gigs of video memory is overkill for a world that only reaches 30fps. The only benefit you may see is with DX9 rendering but considering your old card supported up to DX10 the performance benefit between your two machines will be the same. Only If you were playing a game such as Crysis 2 you would notice any difference. One of the greatest things about There is it doesn’t require a high end machine, and a computer from years ago (when There was first developed) will perform as equally well in comparison to a new one.

    • #89 by Michael Wilson on 2011.09.25 - 6:34 pm

      That’s not quite true. The video memory can be of great benefit since it will allow the card to hold more textures, and minimize texture swapping. Even in parts of the world without hi-resolution textures, more video memory if a benefit.

      But this There will continue to run on older computers (and slower connections) as well as it did before.

      • #90 by softNdark on 2011.09.25 - 6:54 pm

  43. #95 by That Guy on 2011.09.25 - 10:32 am

    I’m really curious to see if when recording playing paintball my mouse is going to jitter on my new gaming setup… Did anyone else have that problem? Like if you were recording and there was too many avatars or just PAZ items out then your mouse would speed up randomly when you were aiming across them? It’s hard to explain but it always happened to me when I was using FRAPS and playing paintball in Zephyr, or even in a crowded funzone.

    My old setup with an Nvidia 8800 GTS 256MB, 4GB DDR2 RAM, Athlon Dual Core 2.6ghz on Windows 7 Home Premium.

    My new setup is GTX 460 768MB, 8GB DDR3 RAM, Phenom II 3.2ghz Quad Core Black Edition, and running Windows 7 Pro.

    I’m sure this will probably make a difference, but does anyone with similar specs to my new setup record flawlessly when playing paintball?

    • #96 by That Guy on 2011.09.25 - 10:33 am

      Oh and a 60GB OCZ SSD πŸ™‚

    • #97 by Seg_Vio on 2011.09.25 - 1:46 pm

      Set your video folder (in fraps) to a seperate harddrive, or to a thumbdrive (8gb or larger). That will take the strain off of your HD that There is running on and gain you more FPS.

      • #98 by That Guy on 2011.09.26 - 1:53 am

        Genius idea! I just couldn’t figure out who was getting all the stress. Like xeroxcopy said I thought my video card was pretty sufficient for playing / recording the game, but hopefully now with a better video card, more memory, and a separate 1TB 7200RPM drive I can finally record while I’m playing paintball (my lifelong dream, obviously).

      • #99 by Seg_Vio on 2011.09.27 - 7:24 pm

        I think deep down inside…that is everyones dream! πŸ™‚

  46. #103 by Cyndi Yonkers on 2011.09.25 - 1:33 am

    Hello all you Therians out there. Well it is my 3rd day in the 3D world. It is great to be back. I got the email late Thursday I couldn’t believe my eyes!! I had a few problems with the install. I had to uninstall and reinstall a few times but the third time was a charm. I did a little exploring on Thursday. It is funny to see some places without trees. I found Clucky though. Friday I started trying to decorate. That didn’t work out so well because My Things kept messing up and was very slow to load. I sent feedback to Samsyn and he suggested I organize my things into files. I have now been working on that for the past two days. I am still not done as I have a massive inventory. But it is working much better now that I have started my file system. I guess there will be another client update soon to fix this problem and others. I talked to another member who was having worse problems than I was. She had organized all of her files and had a problem with invisible items (not showing up in inventory) after getting My Things organized. I have managed to get my Paz out on my old Island Hood of Balize. One thing about There now is, you can drop pazes virtually anywhere. I should finish my organization of My Things sometime tomorrow. Yay!! I wil tell you that that is a boring task. I always hated filing. Haha!! I went to an Event Hosted by BABS last night. We had a flotilla to several famaliar places, It was fun and great to see old friends again. At the end there was a dice roll to win a Golden Dragon Hover donated by Mr. Vercetti. Bumpin42 won that, I missed it by 1. Oka gave everyone butterfly props and a great time was had by all. Well that is all for now.

        I actually thought I was missing things in my inventory when looking in MY THINGS….but then discovered they were there when trying to organize…Once I organized, I went back, and found them in my things…….hmmm

      • #111 by Cyndi Yonkers on 2011.09.26 - 9:20 am

        @ImageMaker… I don’t know if Mr. Vercetti himself donated the Dragon for sure or if BABBS donated it, Seems she said compliments of Mr. Vercetti I think. I could be wrong. I had no idea he had been banned.

      The space shows up when There Central page loads, during startup of There client.
      It does not show up in any of the Windows XP 32 bit versions I have.
      It does show up in Windows XP x64.
      Also in the 64 bit versions of Windows 7.

      • #141 by ImageMaker on 2011.09.25 - 11:52 am

        Originally, one of the attractions of There was that it didn’t require equipment that cost an arm and a leg to run the client. If you need a $100 video card, that’s changed (but I suspect it has more to do with the OGL/DX8/DX9 support, which has more to do with who made the card ROM and drivers than with what you spent).

      • #142 by n3rd_status on 2011.09.26 - 12:57 pm

        yeah it’s totally my video card…. or should I say cards.. I’m running dual geforce 9800’s.. maybe I should spend 100 dollars instead of 400+?

      • #143 by jimony on 2011.09.26 - 1:36 pm

        I am using a Radeon HD 4670 which cost me about $50.00 at a MicroCenter store. The only problem I have is not related to the card itself: being able to run There full screen on one monitor and click in the second monitor at the same time. I have to keep the There window un-maximized. That isn’t a problem with the video card but with the way There changes the screen resolution when you maximize it. I think this was a problem before There closed, but don’t remember for sure. The video itself works great. I would advise having a card with at least 500mb memory, though.

      • #144 by That Guy on 2011.09.26 - 5:36 pm

        Yeah, he can’t get into a BETA TESTING with his high dollar NVIDIA cards. Lets just assume bad hardware and get a $4 video card a wolf or wherever in the world you might be able to find one that cheap and call it a day so Mr. “RAY” can get into world faster. NOT.

    The lag issues with inventory seem lag-free *now* but once we have a few thousand users online that will likely change. So the real question is how well will the new “there2” cope with real lag and hopefully won’t succumb to vulnerabilities, failures, hacks, inventory loss, T$ loss, exploits, as well as all-out crashes and how quickly it can come back online on it’s own. I really hope we can do some heavy load testing of the service before it publicly goes live. Hopefully there are some “white hat hackers” out there willing poke and prod the service before it goes live too. Nothing wrong with being thorough about this sorta thing! πŸ™‚

    Sad, 😦 another day without There, sitll waiting patiently for There to open, btw gp3d’s great job

  66. #161 by Basya on 2011.09.23 - 11:07 am

    HEY! I’M NOW A GUINEA PIG 3D!!!! Wowee!!

    However, when I received the email last night, I tried to get in several times unsuccessfully! I even talked with MW in ThereIM afterwards and was told some setting on the server (Priv Set, I think) needed to be fixed for me to get in. I just tried again to get in today and got the same message:
    “There is closed — Please try again later!”

    Samsyn– Please fix this — I am so very anxious to fly the skies of There again!!! (I’ve even sent email to the url we were given and even to your email.)


    Cya all in There very soon!!!

      Perhaps the invitation is for an alt avatar of your. For example, I can log in with ‘toufovou’ but I can’t log in with my other avatar. It gives me the same message.
      They only allow certain avatars in world. All the others are still blocked!!!

      • #163 by Basya on 2011.09.24 - 7:14 pm

        Just tried to get in this evening (Saturday) and was still unable to log in!!! Getting same message. BTW, I have tried my alts but they don’t work either!

    • #164 by justagreatguy on 2011.09.24 - 9:45 am

      congratulations Basya on being a new guinea pig, Good luck and I hope you have a lot of fun!!!

      I’m finally in World again!!!! Yes, after getting my invite a couple of days ago, I finally was able to log in this afternoon!!!! Wooot!!!!!! Thanks so much to Dan and the Phoenix team in working to fix whatever needed to be fixed!!!!

      I did have one glitch though. I am using Chrome as my browser — but, when I logged in, it seemed that IE wanted to take over but I somehow was able to get around that. Also DX9 seems to be working well — and I now have my PINK tag back! (GO PINK!!!) And now I have my ginger bodyset back and now look like “myself” once again!

      Now, I’ve got to settle down and organize my thngs and places(have loads) — I’ll report back in next few days!

      Fox 20 (HLFT) reporting and ready to fly once again!!!

      Thanks again,

  67. #167 by coolnet on 2011.09.23 - 9:28 am

    Would it be possible for the future if we could watch videos from either YouTube, Vimeo, Veoh, etc…on There?

    • #168 by toufovou on 2011.09.23 - 11:45 am

      I think they already know how to do that.

      Take a look at this older post by MW.

      It was written way back then… a couple of months after There shut down.

      • #169 by ImageMaker on 2011.09.23 - 11:57 am

        There were (IIRC) three theaters on The Atoll (an island shaped like an interference function from a circular pinhole, off south Ootay) that showed movies within the client. Those movies had to be stored somewhere, though they didn’t, as I recall, have the standard YouTube interface. Personally, I’d rather have the in-world interface than bring YouTube inside There.

      • #170 by coolnet on 2011.09.24 - 8:25 pm

        Oh yes, now i recall…Thanks for the link. The only downside with Flash Player is if There goes mobile, and we are able to use it on a ipad, iphone or ipod touch, Adobe Flash Player is no longer available because of a lawsuit was occurring against Apple from Adobe. I believe Apple was replacing it with HTML5 if I recall correctly. Not sure if There would work on ipad, but I might give it a chance to test to see if it does. It would be pretty sweet. By the way, not sure if everyone knows but there are no more Macbook’s…Only Macbook Pro and Macbook Air…

    I’m Going To Be One Of Those People Who Try To Guess When THERE Will Open. I’m Going To Say January 1st, 2012. Or Christmas Day This Year.
    Seems Like We’re So Close, Yet So Far Away. Lol!

    • #186 by Tre_Ghost on 2011.09.23 - 8:27 am

      There’s a link fixed on that leads to a page that says when it will open actually. Though it’s vague, it says Fall of 2011.

      • #187 by ImageMaker on 2011.09.23 - 11:58 am

        Well, it’s been officially autumn for a couple days now — and yes, I still want my flying car and antigravity belt, too; dammit, this is the 21st century, after all!

    Let me be one of the first, on behalf of the GP’s to thank you for the new ‘Wolf Urine’ Drink Mug. Tasty (tho a bit salty), with a distinct ambiance around it, I especially like that it makes your Avie howl at the moon!

  87. #198 by Kevin Brunner on 2011.09.22 - 1:56 pm

    Yes, we are getting closer, I can feel it!! Our world is coming back! As for the Wolf Urine, reminds me of a bottle of “Ye old Panther Piss” my Dad used to keep around. As I recall it was a bottle good ol Kentucky bourban. Some how I don’t think this is quite the same. Keep up the great work Michael and all the GP3D’s. Farmville is getting pretty tiresome. Just not the same as driving or flying around in there. Thank for the great updates.

        Our company puts a “greeter” at the door.
        In my department, or walking the isles, you are asked to greet everyone who walks by and ask them if they need help.
        And yet, there is always that small percentage that bitches about “all the employees trying to be friendly”.
        Keep posting those pictures. Keep sending those people to the end of the line!
        I always search out your responses. Your twisted, sarcastic sense of humor, has made my day, many times!
        BTW, if you do have all that time on your hands, teleport to Zephyr and say hello πŸ™‚ I’m sure the greeting will be friendly, just like it always was! LOL

    Great job, GP3Ds! I’m sorry I can’t be of much help but I like to think that BABS is doing some testing with all my vehicles that she keeps swiping when I get the ol’ boot. Need anything else, BABS? I’ll leave them on my PAZ for you. Do you want me to lock them so you can have a little challenge? πŸ˜›

    (scrooge loves ya ❀ )

    • #256 by Babs There on 2011.09.22 - 11:27 am

      LOL it’s not swiping, I’m just “borrowing” them. πŸ˜› I’m always up for a challenge, but locking a vehicle in a paz isn’t good enough.. Orielle locked her monster tuv upstairs in her house and well, it’s still in my inventory. lol

      Scroogie! I think I found a solution to your problem with the “exploding avatar” look. I had the same happen to me when I first logged in. To fix it I went to Start>All Programs>There Prod folder>There Tweaker> and changed dx8 to dx9. when I re-opened There I loaded just fine.

      I hope this solves your problem! If not, I’m sure it has something to do with either your video drivers- or video settings. Possibly could be as simple as dwonloading the newest version of Directx.

    So, is Wolf Urine going to be a new in-game item? πŸ˜‰

    I do wonder how many didn’t realize this was about hunting lures… As for the update and showing all that was happening, both good and still bugged, it was nice to get a eyes view. Keep up the great work GPD’s. To all my other friends, see you on FB, or once world opens, in THERE!!!

        Prolly not… yuck!

        I’m sorry I know this is SLANG for probably, but is it really that hard to type the word correctly. I mean prolly is six letters and probably is eight letters, are we really speeding up our text/typing time by inserting a different word that is only two letters shorter, or is it the inability for our current educational system students who may or may not have reached the work force yet to spell the word probably……..Probably!
