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.

Release 1.35

NOTE: This release contains OpenMP again! This time i included the vcomp100.dll in order to prevent the missing error message and the need for you to download it manually

Release ...again too late...


Interface, interface , interface.... its in nearly every post ... becaaaaauuuuse its one of the core parts of the Viewer that constantly and most obviously changes , this time i worked on some bugfixes and a bit of help.

The probably best , especially for newcomers and people that are confused by the different keyboard layout by default, you all will now be presented by this screen on the first run , asking you which overall Viewer layout you want to use for my Viewer

I´ve also "fixed" the mini locationbar which auto resized depending on the text and icons , i´ve taken that behavior out and made it go from left to right , that renders the need to hide those controls up there obselete, as they can now still be seperatly hidden

On the way while doing some things i also added the missing Object Profile option into the pie menu

When aborting a TP , your Field of View and Glow will also reset to normal values again , thanks to Penny Patton for telling me

Oh... and Group notes notifiers have been changed , previously they displayed Sendername / Groupname , that often looked like this then [niranv.dean / nirans vie...] ... it cuts because the notifier is not big enough , so how to solve that without making it bigger?! its simple , do what i did to online notifications aswell! make it appear in two lines!



NOTE: those are made with my Viewer! and arnt after edited , its something i was busy half the week but its just too buggy to take that into release...sorry , even if it looks awesome



fixed abort TP causes glow strenght and fov to stay as it was while TPing instead of reverting
tweaked Group notes header layout to be better readable
tweaked Group notes text and attachment layout
tweaked Topinfobar to be resized from far left to far right
added OpenMP Support again and this time with vcomp100.dll :)
added missing Object profile menu entry to Pie menu
added Gameplay style selector to login screne on first start
translated Bubblechat color text
STORM-1841 Provide improved flow for selling objects in world - self Fixed


  1. I'm getting an error message whenever I try to start up the viewer. http://grabilla.com/02507-aa20b177-e0d3-4f7f-95b5-b303d944e017.png

    1. most likely due to OpenMP , can you tell me your system specs please?

    2. i would like to cross reference as i have much experience with this error, try downloading "nielfix",, niel wrote a dotnet all in one patch and fixer, the error 0x0^77b (x0000070 or x^^7b) is usually related to missing or corrupted instalations of dot net and or an unstable overclock multiplier, since it happens ?EVERY? time its not an overlclock or an issue with speed step

  2. How do you change the view ? I choose the classic view, but i don't like it...
    How can i get back to the other view ? I have try to reinstall but it's don't work.

    I hope you will help me, thank you.

    1. change the settings manually
      can be found in User Options - Advanced
      View Button (Eye icon in your Toolbar) then again the Eye icon in the new window
      User Options - Advanced - Movement button
      Communication Options

    2. i love the new view , but i dont know how to make the "map search" appear on part of the map, i am VERY FOND of the fact that various menus and things on occasion do not load, as that it reduces the fps usage GREATLY, perhaps u could design it someday to force all menues load and unload with hot-key ?^^

      one more thing! i have noticed a small bug that occurs in neils viewer as well, that is that when u push hotkey ctrl + s (for to force sit on ground){feature of emerald viewer} it simply rotates the camera to the sky very very aggressively. please !DO NOT! INCLUDE the radar and other crap from the other viewers, yours is best!

    3. the key combo is Shift + Alt + S , and just makes me sit

  3. I'm getting the same error as Vasean:

    OpenGL Version: 4.2.0

  4. Clean install and now I get: Application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close application.

    Fix meh pls!

    1. i think i explained that in 1.33 , 1.33 was a huge major release , so while beeing at doing lots of work anyway i did a 32bit btw , meaning that 32bit will not be default, however you IM me or my Group and ask for a 32bit version, i might compile one then
