finally, i am going to try the Lumiya Android viewer
i scored massively in receiving a Google Nexus 7 as a Christmas present and am anxious to check out Kitely with it. you might also be able to hit Sim-on-a-Stick with it too!
that will be another post as i need to order a $2 cable to connect the tablet to a USB drive (thus enabling massive external storage and here are two posts talking about how to do that – post one | post two)
back to Lumiya – first, you have to get Lumiya here or scan their nifty QR code on the right. it costs $2.95, which is way more than fair imo
i’ve never bought anything from the Google Play store but it was an easy process and needed a credit card to set up Google Wallet
once Lumiya downloaded (it took about a minute over wifi), you need to use the tablet and log into the Kitely website, and then start the world you want to enter. in this case, i went to Hax Nuit (big surprise). the Kitely website will alert you when the world is up
once your world is started, you have two minutes to log in. so launch Lumiya and select Kitely as your grid (Alina has it listed in the grid manager – she’s awesome!) =)
you’ll need your viewer password which is different than your account password. thankfully, Ilan was able to answer my calls for help within minutes and got me logged in properly
your Kitely Account login name and password is probably different from your viewer name and password and that was the case for me. i use a named account for Kitely, not facebook or twitter, so my website (and plugin) login uses my email address and account password
BUT, Lumiya is a viewer and needs your avatar name and viewer password. in my case, my viewer name is Ener Hax and not my email address (derr on me)
once i logged in with Lumiya properly, Hax Nuit appeared in the tablet and i was very excited =D
it’s no desktop viewer but i was quite tickled to be able to walk and fly in Hax Nuit from the tablet!
uber big hats off to Alina Lyvette for creating the Lumiya viewer, seeing it in action first hand gives me hope for future versions and eventual top notch graphics (which are limited by the anemic power of tablets and not by Alina’s mad coding skillz) *massive props to Alina*
and thanks to Kitely for making it easy to get in-world – everything rezzed quickly (i only had 64 metres set as draw distance and have not mess around with the other Lumiya settings yet)
Ilan says that once they have their transfer stations in place, you won’t have to manually start your world with the tablet – seems like a pretty bright future ahead! ^.^
