A Plea For Help
January 16, 2009
I’ve been asking for help all over the place, especially ange lolx, but my issue is still not solved. Basically, I am locked out of SL. I can’t finish loading the game. It just freezes at the “connecting to region” screen of the loading part. It has been like that for close, if not more than 36 hrs now. The last time it happened, I was able to log in the next day. But this time nothing. I’m pretty sure I’m not frozen cause ange checked for me and I log out properly. I tried logging in at different regions, reinstalling, changed the computer but to no avail. I’m still locked out. Really Really upset right now. Tia, whom I met through the SL forums is having the same problems as me. We submitted tickets and Tia got an answer 1st:
There’s a possibility that the region you’re attempting to log into in Second Life is down for a few minutes (it might be restarting). If Second Life just crashed or you were disconnected, it’s possible you’re attempting to log in from a bad location.
Try changing your login location and log in again.
If you’re running a firewall or firewall/internet security software, it may have a security warning in the background that’s interrupting Second Life’s login process. You may have to reconfigure or disable this third-party software to use Second Life.
If you’re using wireless networking, you may want to try a wired connection.
During periods of high activity, the login process may pause during Connecting to Region. In this case, wait for Second Life to return to the Login screen, or display an error message.
You might also try uninstalling Second Life, then installing it again from [url]http://secondlife.com/download[/url], to remove any temporary files that might affect the login process.
Totally WTF! Lets see, we tried logging in at different locations, still stuck. We tried reinstalling, still stuck. Pretty sure it has nothing to do with our computers or internet connection. It gets stuck at connecting to region for 3 hrs before we finally give up and restart the programme. I bet if I leave it on for 24 hrs, the outcome will still be the same. Definitely not firewall cause my firewall has always been on when I play SL w/o any effects? To be on the safe side, I tried and its still not working. :(
We’re pissed. Since the lindens are entirely useless, (bleh are they uni grads or not? Lacking of critical thinking and analysis skills much? Come on you invented the programme, surely you have a backdoor just in case? Bleh its not like biology where there’s unknown bacteria roaming around. Come on, SL is man-made! /me is feeling super sacarstic.), I’m asking anyone who have information and insights on this problem to please leave a comment. I’m really frustrated and pissed and sad… :( The thread Tia opened is here.
/me really wanna get back to blogging (lookbook has inspired me alot!), start on the pic for freak show and do that photoshoot for jiro and sheepie *sadface*
So please, help? THANKS!
