Hello out there,
two days ago I installed HigFid the first time and spent some time to get it running - but sadly no luck so far. At the beginning I appeared in the Sandbox and saw some blurry avatars around me.
By hitting ESC I found the Lobby with the panels to click on. It worked only one time, I got sent to a castle and was able to see it.
Well, this was the only time a teleport worked - since then all i see are stars and sometimes blurry avatars around me. The window “Bandwith Details” shows me a “Domain Bandwith In/Out” of 0/0 always (i suppose this should show me some values if a scene around would happen to load). I cleared cache, but it didn’t fixed the problem.
Is it correct, that objects are phantom, so my avatar don’t collide with the ground or objects?
Sometimes the viewer causes a very scratchy sound, like a square wave signal, it could cause a damage. So far I’ve not used a headset or anything.
One other point I want to mention: After entering HiFi, the first I heard from voice, were some avatars swearing by using a dirty language - shame on those! Its pretty much like in SL. I know, such foul expressions are common in some countries, but its a shame.
Generally, it might be cool to use voice chat with facial expressions mapped onto an avatar, but frankly, in 99.9% of my virtual life time i will not need it, since it is “fleeting” information. Only usage might be for talks and debates.
Btw, is it allowed to make screen-casts of HiFi and share them on Youtube?
Looking forward to see improvements coming to HiFi one bye one!
For your answers, many thanks in advance,
