Viewing tips:
1)Try to come in with as low an avatar rendering cost (ARC) as possible to reduce your lag. System clothes are low ARC or pick up a colorful skin and come just in that. Check out the SL wiki post about arc: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Avatar_Rendering_Cost
Things that add to ARC
  • Prim clothing and attachments
  • Prim shoes/boots
  • Prim hair
  • Excessive use of high resolution textures
  • Animation overriders (AOs) and other attached HUDs, including avatar radars
  • Highly detailed jewelry
2) Take off as many scripted things as possible. You can detach your AO – you’re just gonna be standing around anyway *smiles*. Take off your shoes. Sometimes hair has a ton of scripts – take it off and try a hat or a bandana. There are a ton of scripts involved in these events. The fewer scripts you run, the more processor power is available for the burn.

#3) Set up your viewer for best results:
————————————————-

Force to Sun to Midnight
Draw Distance 152m to 170m
Particle Count 4096 minimum; 7168 maximum
Local Lights = Maximum
“Sounds” volume slider = Maximum
Avatar Impostors = CHECKED

Advanced Settings:
———————–

Lighting & Shadows OFF
Global Illumination OFF
Water Reflections MINIMAL
Post Process Quality = High

Optional Settings:
———————

If your viewer supports “Derendering”, consider derendering various objects at your discretion.
If your viewer supports “Maximum number of avatars”, consider lowering that value for the duration of the Burn.
