- Click on the Download Avatar link.
You will see it being downloaded at the bottom left of your screen.
Once the avatar.exe has downloaded, click on it to install - the program is called ‘Singularity’.
Allow your computer’s firewall and any other security settings to run the program.
When the program opens you will firstly put in the address of the VR campus or grid. It’s like a phone number with dots in between the numbers. (If you are running the Free VR Classroom you will choose Local).
- Click on the Grid Manager Button at the bottom of the screen.
- Click on the Create Button at the top of the screen.
- Click into the Login URI text box.
This is the address of the grid you want to visit. In this example we put in the address of the Niteschool demo grid - 18.104.22.168:8002 (notice the semi-colon).
- Click into the Grid Name textbox and give your grid a name.
Then choose OK and the window will close and you’ll be back at the opening screen.
You now need to choose the grid you just created by clicking on the drop down arrow underneath the ‘Grid or Login URL’.
- Click into the Username box.
Type in your first and last name, separated by a space and then type in your password.
- Click on Login.
The program will take a few moments to load. (If you have a slow connection or an older computer, it will still run, however movements will be jerky and it will freeze from time to time).
Agree to the Vivox voice license agreement if asked.
When your avatar appears wait a few moments for the graphics to rez up and then start exploring the VR world.
