Hi, I find myself often answering the same set of questions,
so to speed things up I thought I would supply a FAQ list,
if you have a question, please read on to see if it has been
Q: I'm interested in buying a Russian Roulette Table,
where can I get one?
A: Please see the My Picks tab for a direct TP to the vendor,
there is a table out nearby too so you can try before you buy
Q: Can you make me a special Russian Roulette Table
which will give me a cut of the winnings?
A: Sorry no, this was the game I wanted to make.
Q: I'm interested in buying a Musical Instrument,
where can I get one?
A: Please see My Picks for a direct TP to the Musical
Instrument vendor, also there is a TP to my showroom,
many of the instruments can be viewed here,
and some can be demoed, thanks!
Q: I'm at your Vendor, how does it work?
A: The home pages on the vendor show many smaller images
all at the same time. Use the <- -> keys to move between pages.
If you see an item you might like to buy, press the image to
enlarge it. From here you can either press the ' i ' button to get a
notecard about the item, or pay the vendor to buy the item.
The price is shown ABOVE the vendor in floating text - you need
to be fairly close to be able to see / read the price - Remember to
look ABOVE the vendor please...
Q: Can I hear a demo of a Hyper-Instrument?
A: Yep sure, a demo of the Hyper-Flute can be seen/heard
in this video
Q: Any advice on how to work the
- what do all the buttons do?
A: Yep sure, you will have got instructions but loads
more help here
Q: Any advice on how to write a Musical Score for
A: Yep sure, loads, and loads of detailed help
can be found here
Q: Can I get more Scores/Music to play in my
A: Yes loads, you can collect more score-notecards
from my Hyper Instrument score sharing-vendor and please
leave any of your own scores here too for others to collect
and play. Please see My Picks tab for a direct TP to the
sharing vendor, thanks!
(Please remember, if you are leaving a score for others
to play, use a name for your notecard that is NOT longer
than 24 characters in length).
Q: How do I add new scores to my Hyper-Instrument?
A: In edit mode select the attached HUD. In the HUD's
edit window, choose MORE>> and then choose the contents
Tab, drag and drop new scores here to add them.
Q: My Hyper-Instrument no longer loads a new score,
A: This is most likely because you have a notecard in
your HUD's contents with a name of greater than
24 characters long.
Rename the offending notecard with a shorter name,
and you're good to go!
Q: My Hyper-Instrument is not working,
"stack-heap collision error",
A: The script has become inactive, this can happen
if you try to load a Notecard score which is too long
for the memory capabilities of a SL script, or sometimes
if you have tried to load a score whilst it is already
busy loading one....
To fix this problem, please select the HUD in whilst in
edit mode and choose 'Reset Scripts in Selection'.
This can be found near the bottom of the 'Tools' Menu.
Syncronisation/ No Sound Issues:
Q: My Drums or Gamelan instruments
don't play sound, what's wrong?
A: Most of my drums require you to also rez the
conductor object nearby, you will have received
one of these when you bought the drum(s).
Please rez this and touch to turn it on (Green = ON)
- this thing holds the timing between many drums so
they play in sync, and without it you get no sound.
The Gamelan instruments need this too and also need the
Pattern Changer object to be rezzed, which looks like a
set of 4 large gongs, but is actually 4 buttons used to change
the patterns on many Gamelan instruments at the same time.
If you have not rezzed the Pattern changer and the conductor
objects you will get no sound from the Gamelan instruments.
Yep, the Gamelan instruments work in time with the
Elven Drums too!
