A typical DownloadHud? display might look like this:

   Downloads 1 Q'd 0 BW 32000
   2054 s/av/mt0/lb/

MusicHud - with this variable set, as you approach a loudspeaker, jukebox or other music source in There the MusicHud window will appear at the top of the screen. The window is non-movable, purple and arrives across the top of the ThereClient window. This display will vanish as you move away from the sound source (how far?)

Initially the window display will look like this:

   Station: Pulse Radio

It will immediately change to look like this:

   Station: Pulse Radio
   Song: Aerosmith - Janie's Got A Gun

Notes: Sometimes the song title changes to the next song before the current song ends. Is this due to buffering?

The UserCam?+ app is activated with the flipCamera environmental variable. A small window external to the ThereClient opens with the following clickable words:

Default  1stP    3rdPfnt  3rdPTop
Zoom+    Zoom-   FOV+     FOV-
Raise    Lower   RotX+    RotX-
Lock     View    Tight    Loose

Default - Original POV when UserCam+ is activated
1stP    - First Person View
3rdPfnt - Body Mirror View
3rdPTop - Standard View
Zoom+   - Moves Camera closer to the avatar
Zoom-   - Moves Camera farther from the avatar
FOV+    - No Effect (greyed out)
FOV-    - No Effect (greyed out)
Raise   - Rotates camera above the avatar
Lower   - Rotates camera below the avatar
RotX+   - Rotates camera counterclockwise around the avatar
RotX-   - Rotates camera clockwise around the avatar
Lock    - Locks Camera in place.  Avatar can move, even off screen, away from the camera. Can reattach with "Default" button.
View    - Locks Camera in place.  Avatar can move, even off screen, away from the camera. Cannot reattach without client restart.
Tight   - No Effect
Loose   - No Effect

From IanYoung: the localHostAddr? looks like an IP address expressed as an (Intel) integer value. To decode, convert to hex (0400A8C0) reverse byte order (C0A80004) add dots (C0.A8.00.04) and convert to decimal ( Looks like you have a router doing NAT and a local network?

From MescadThere Yes, in fact that's exactly right. The computer with There installed is on my network. Thanks
