My iPhone 8+ is lightyears better and more powerful than what I am forced to use in Second Life right now. Back in 2011 when I was new to SL I was using an iMac 2007. It was ok for SL but not the best, but it did what I needed it to do and was only 3yrs old. As SL was growing and mesh was becoming the norm this computer slowly could not handle SL very well and I could not use advanced lighting at all or I would crash. So I had had enough in 2013.
For my birthday in Jan of 2014 I bought a new iMac. It was amazing and SL was so fast everyone was a blur and I could not read their display names as they walked. I was so pampered. …. Now in Dec of 2018 4 yrs after I bought that computer (4 yrs only) it is doing this…
I am not amused at this point and I know computers are not made to last anymore but a Mac only lasting 4yrs? Come on!!! Full circle back to what I am talking about… My 2007 iMac is what I am using now until Apple finally gets back to me about my better computer. This poorly iMac thats in its almost vintage years does not like SL one little bit. So all I can do is sit on my studio platform with almost nothing and get my IMs. Thats it. No advanced lighting, no visiting other places unless once I get there doing a shift+control+alt+9 to derender everything except the sky and avatars and even then I am lagging with fps under 10.
Yep this is me in SL the past week and no end in sight. I am supposed to be getting a call in the morning as to what will happen next. Wish me luck. If you see any images from me right now they are screenshots from gyazo. yuck! Photoshop cannot fix this amount of awful.
Happy SL everyone!
