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 1.36

NOTE: This release doesnt include OpenMP anymore , it might mean a tiny decrease in Performance for those the Viewer worked perfectly

Release day!
something very important at first
Due to so many people having those Application Errors which someone explained why they happen , in one of the comments and no one seeming to be able to fix this issue on their own , i´ve fixed it myself by just taking out OpenMP again, again OpenMP is a huge fail , more than last time where it only caused crashing viewer for some people...

anyway heres Release 1.36
and heres a note you should remember for the next few updates + this one , a lot of bugs have been reported and they are getting more , just like they are multiplicating , without me doing anything , meaning i dont code anything that could even cause something like that , so please double check your end , "most issues sit between chair and keyboard" , thats a fact , not harassment. Im saying this probably very wise sentence not because im wise , im saying it because its true , 89% of all issues lot of people having are issues i dont get , some of them are also Server Side issues , i mean atm we cannot know whats server side and what not as it seems servers can fuck up more than we think...atlast in SL


I´ve finally come along to hook up the Achievment floater and finish some Achievments , meaning you will be able to collect a huge bunch already! And i think you will like it if you care. (another great way to extend our e-peen without having features like ultra long radars =D)
You can find them in NV - View - Earned Achievments

User Interface:

Some bugs reported involved the Autohiding topbar feature which reactivated the favbar after it slides out again , i fixed that and while beeing at it i revamped the system a bit , whenever the topbar hides now or parts of it hide , the toolbars will slide , like on the pic below which awesomely demonstrates how clean my UI can be if Autohiding Topbar is on , if i would be a shortcut junkey now and remove all my Toolbar buttons , i wouldnt need a User Interface checkbox in Snapshot floater anymore as my UI is hidden anyway!

And someone suggested me to make Group Notice Panel resizable... or atlast make it resize automatically with the floater , so i did that , note some other panels will still not resize , thats intended for now. Remember , im working on a lot of things at the same time (sorry i simply cannot work on one thing after another...) so a lot of things will be created , released in a half done way , then finished and finetuned

I´ve also done several tiny UI tweaks and works here and there , more german Translations , moved Admin options to Admin Menu , renamed Recent panel to History panel , fixed [COST] in Inventory menu which i previously fixed by just writing 10L$ but now its [COST] again which will be converted to 10L$ after the Viewer got the prices (i know i could have left 10L$ and instead remove the check code , thats unnecessenary code as those 10L$ upload fee will most likely never change)

oh and...something special... i fixed the Volume Pulldown , it will appear below the button again , not correctly centered but it appears below it! , will fix it that it will show up centered next time ... atlast its usable again! but it only works (Captain Obvious stating the obvious now) for objects you have taken on the SIM you are on. There must NOT be a relog inbetween this take action and your try to restore it!


I remember someone suggesting me the restore to last position feature of other Viewers.... so i reactivated it ... yes , it was there... all the time... it was just deactivated because of a DEV-XXXXX Jira entry , i dont know what this DEV Jira entry said as it is not available anymore , but hey! we got the feature back!

  1. Vielen Dank für die tolle Arbeit!

  2. Umm ... every time I right click a HUD on my screen to relocate it, the viewer crashes.

  3. Standart Question: Cleared Cache? Cleared Settings?

  4. Then i dont know , im not getting this crash... will have to try with clean settings and see if i borked a setting

    1. No worries. It's a clean install but I then modify some settings to be event hostess friendly; camera is rear view and closer and flatter (-0.125 and 0.125), I turn up meshmax threads to 64, rendervol = 5.000, and my chat bar and all my icons are on the bottom bar.

    2. This comment has been removed by the author.

    3. I cleared cache and settings and everything was fine. I started to change the settings to my usual (to the same settings I use with other viewers) and as soon as I switched the camera to rear view and brought it in closer to the avatar ... CRASH! Relog and rotate camera ... CRASH. One of the earlier original LL V2 builds used to do this too. I'll try your viewer again after your next build. Keep up the good work!

    4. absolutely not reproducable Cincia , sorry , please send me your logs otherwise i dont see way to find out whats causing this

  5. I'll get those for you when I get home from work this evening.

  6. Crash logs sent in notecards inworld (2 notecards/crash).
