Personal media in Second Life

Thanks for the t-shirt but…where comes it from?

Filed under: Bugs, glitches — Signore Iredell @ 3:22 pm


I’m currently using the stable Second Life Viewer on Windows (that is, 1.13.3 (2) Jan 30 2007 15:34:24 release).
My avatar doesn’t usually wear shirts, but after I logged in I found myself wearing a nice t-shirt:


Watching it better, I discover that this t-shirt is actually using screen_last.bmp, the snapshot that the viewer automatically takes when you logout:


Here is screen_last (jpeg version):




  1. I like the images. I have been trying to do texture for a while on some of my avatars, but I have not been able to get the programming to work properly for it. There seems to be some glitches that I have not been able to work out yet. The picture distorts and loses its shape with the texture. I have tried a couple of programs and all with the same problem. What could I be doing wrong? Am I missing some part that would help reduce the image degradation? And what really sucks is that all of my friends are computer illiterate and not been able to help me. I have not had anyone I could turn to for help or advice on this. I seem to be the one that they are turn to for computer advice. So who does the computer nerd turn to for help? I would greatly appreciate any input I could get on this.

  2. Beautiful! What software did you use to create these? I admit I’m no good at texturing and layering since I’m just starting out with this technique. Do you know any online tutorial about this?
