Black Dragon is MY Viewer, i decide which feature i want to add and which to remove, i share this Viewer to show the world that user base size is not important, i do rate quality by effort, thought and love put into the project, not some rough estimated numbers. I consider feature requests only if i you can name proper valid reasons i can agree on. It is my (unpaid) time i'm putting into this project, i'm not here to cater to every Joe's desires.

Second Life and Kinect

did you ever imagine doing animations REALTIME while inworld , by doing them with your OWN BODY!? just imagination? future? BLUB! NO! its already possible since a long time and i need someone who has some basic Windows knowledge and who wants to try out if you can play animations with your Kinect, yea i added support for that and i wanted to test it but sadly i got a new Kinect which doesnt have the right USB port...

IM me inworld if interessted!


  1. The issue with the USB connection is the reason, that I wait for the Kinect for Windows. The sale of this Kinect starts on February, 1st. But start price is $250 (for Xbox it costs $120). After the price goes down to normal level for the Windows version, I will buy this device.

    Actually SLKinect works only local or with connection to a special animation relay server. If someone use it in SL, the animations are only visible inside the viewer of this user (or a group which connect to the same animation relay server). For later, I hope LL will provide server side synchronisation of Kinect using avatars.

    But for testing it is good to have a well working viewer. At the moment, there is only the old Imprudence with lack of features and the Firestorm with to many performance issues.

  3. i know , i wanna test it , but i cant...

  4. hey Niran, you realise the right arm editing thing means you're constantly sieg heiling while editing objects?

  5. @Routnex , nope , sieg heiling would be when your arm is straight and your body fixed in an I Pose , its also very unprecise ...you are also still missing the beard hehe , anyway i dont care i wanted right arm motion and a bunch of people wanted it too without any bad thought in background
