ZOMG TEH LAAAAG
We had our Gaiety Theatre show today - and we managed to do the show against all odds as the lag was through the roof. With just 40-odd people in the sim it seemed worse than a class 5 sim has a right to be. It busticated my curtain, so thank G'al we were able to fall back on Persephone's "Please Remove Your Hats" safety curtain. I'll make an emergency curtain prim for next time.
Candide told me the sim lag spikes - TD .o1 and sim fps 0 at one point - had a lot to do with the texture-after-tp bug. I think if we try to do a few things to help in small ways we can get it to be functional, although things like that are beyond our control. Yes, these are very obvious, basic things.
1. Request a sim restart before the show
2. Audience education (I'd've thunk people would know by now, but oh, well).
3. Candide recommended using a land group set to "no outside scripts."
4. More sacrifices at mount G'al (hope it gets fixed soon).
For anyone watching - these performers are truly brave and just went out there, did their acts, and, when necessary, improvised. We pleased the crowd (although we'd've been much better sans lag), which was our goal. Thank you, performers.

It was the laggiest show I've ever done (although I know from group stories, far from the laggiest ever) but it came off beautifully and I had a real blast doing it - it flowed beautifully :)
I have become accustomed to lag during performances,and no longer become insanely torqued. The dear new troupers were amazingly creative in their coping and pluck. I am thrilled to say we have a show that is well worth seeing, thanks to everyone's efforts and Osprey's unbelievable fount of creative energy, ideas and solutions. PLUS she is patient with us (well, mostly) when we do not grasp the concepts she spews.
