The JJIE Virtual World Grid project recommends the Firestorm Viewer for avatars to enter our world.
We can offer technical support to anyone logged in using Firestorm Viewer. It is recommended you create your JJIE Virtual Wolrd avatar account before downloading the viewer. Then your avatar’s name and password are ready and you can log into the world immediately. Note that when first opened, the Firestorm Viewer may ask you if you want to create an account. Do not use those links. Create your JJIE avatar account here.
