[hemmerling] The Virtual World

My Involvement in Virtual Communities

  • I was introduced to SecondLife in January 2007, by my SL buddy Gerhard Vacano.
  • I was a faithful reader of the free PDF magazine Avastar ( 2006-12-21 - 2008-05-02 ).
  • I really got virtual “Addidias” SL shoes, on the “Addidas” island at Secondlife, in 2007.
  • I visited the virtual offices of some brand companies, including “Deutsche Post” and “Microsoft”, in 2007.
  • I participated in some special Secondlife events :-), see below.

Do Second Life Viewers run on my Hardware ?

Supported Hardware by Second Life Viewers

  • Notebook “ASUS Eee PC T101MT”, running Win8Pro √.
  • Notebook “ASUS K95VB”, running Win10Pro √.

Unsupported Hardware by Second Life Viewers

  • Computer with graphics card with too little graphics card memory ( e.g. 64 MBytes RAM ) - Though SecondLife is running, the display is not proper and not suitable for operation - In many cases, you just see incomplete sets of buildungs and landscapes.
  • “Dell Vostro 1000” notebook, with “ATI Xpress 1150” graphics card, running Win8Pro :-(:
    • Neither legacy nor current versions of SecondLive viewers, including “Phoenix Viewer” and ”“Firestorm Viewer”, refuse to play on Win8-Pro, by the error message “Second Life is unable to run because your video card drivers did not install properly, are out of date, or are for unsupported hardware. Please make shure you have the latest video card drivers and even if you have the latest, try reinstalling them”.
    • I was told that the SecondLife viewers run on WinXP and Vista on that computer, if the latest dedicated graphics driver for WinXP or Vista respectively, is installed :-). But for Win7 / Win8, there are no dedicated graphics drivers anymore :-(.
