HUDs Are Not Working

There are griefing objects that can be rezzed on a region; anyone who goes there will have their HUDs and all other scripted attachments put into a non-running state. For instance: a HUD for a mesh body, and all the mesh body parts you are wearing, may be broken at the same time.

You might also have been affected by what appears to be a server-side bug: BUG-41379.

Below are things you can try to get the items working again.

First of all:

  • Go to Top Menu → Avatar → Avatar Health → Refresh Attachments. See if that fixes the items.
  • Relog then test the items again. That may be enough. If not, read on.

Things to try:

  • Check for location issues:
    • Make sure you are in a region that has scripts enabled.
    • Go to other regions and test the items there. This will rule out technical problems with the original region.
    • If you have RLV enabled, disable it (Preferences → Firestorm, top option), relog, then try again.

Stay in a script-enabled region to do all of the following:

  • Attempt to get scripts running:
    • Try removing and reattaching the items.
    • If the items are modifiable, try resetting them or setting their scripts to running: Inventory, right-click the item → Edit, and while it is in Edit, go to Build menu → Scripts → Reset Scripts, or Build menu → Scripts→ Set Scripts to Running).
  • Identify broken items:
    • Try removing all the HUDs and other attachments and testing them one at a time: test each one, then remove it, then test another.
    • If you have original copies of the items, try detaching the ones you are currently wearing and using a fresh copy from the original.
    • If an item is no-mod and you can't get it to start running again, and you don't have another copy, you will need to request a new copy from the creator.
    • Note: If the non-working HUDs are for your mesh body parts (or other scripted attachments), you probably will need to use fresh copies of the original HUDS and the body parts – every part, from scratch (not copies of the broken ones).
  • Check for interference:
    • Look in Inventory > Current Outfit folder, and see if you are wearing any HUDs you were not aware of. (Note: HUDS do not necessarily have “HUD” in the name.) This could include temporary “Experience” HUDS that you may not be aware were attached.1)
    • Check that HUDs are not overlapping each other on the screen (and so preventing you from clicking).
  • Check for issues with attachment points:
    • If any HUDs are sharing the same HUD attachment point, try moving them to separate HUD attachment points:
      Inventory → Right-click → Detach from Yourself, then Inventory → Right-click → Attach to HUD, and choose an unused point.
    • Even if they are not sharing attachment points, try moving them to different attachment points.
  • Test basic functionality:
    1. Rez a fresh cube
    2. Add the default script to it
    3. Take it into inventory
    4. Attach it to a HUD point
    5. Touch the HUD and see if there is script output in Local chat.
Temp HUDS have been known to freeze other HUDs on the same attachment point.
