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 1.38

NOTE: I´ve read some new reviews on Sourceforge , this Viewer is Windows and Linux (seperatly , not on this blog - open links at the right side , theres a link to Tarnix´s blog) only , no Mac because i dont have a Mac compiler , Movement can ALSO be changed to defaults at all times in User Settings - Advanced - Movement! 
Remember that im a stupid Windows user , i cannot compile for a OS i dont own, that includes Linux (thats why its done by Tarnix)

Finally its Monday again =D
you know what that means! - lets jump right into the changes

User Interface:

I´ve been doing some cleanup here and there , moved some options to the moon and back , Chat panel got a bit cleaner and those hit Enter options are clearly seperated now

Favoritebar was ripped out of the Navigationbar and transplanted into the Statusbar making it able to go from far left to far right - time display , depening on if its shown or not

Red colored "special" options in main menu (top right) have been tweaked a bit , they should be better readable now

I´ve moved Right handed editing arm motion to Viewer and added an automatic fly option replacing it
(automatic fly = hold jump to toggle fly)

I´ve also moved Edit Toolbars menu entry into Edit menu instead of View

Windlight floaters where known to have sliders only , to some of them i added spinners in order to make setting smaller and precise values easy and possible at all

I reworked the classifieds and picks panel , changed them from accordions to tabs which should be way easier to use , note that an empty classifieds panel is not a bug! , it shows empty if you dont have classifieds yet , same for picks


Added a bunch new Achievements , those are Oh, this looks shiny , Nice pic of me , Second Life Fanatic , Stability Test, Check! , Faster than Lighting .... aswell as fixed French Lesson and Getting Sorted


I fixed lots of logspamming caused by an Achievement , also fixed some Errors

Window size shouldnt revert to default of 1280 x 720 anymore

Favoritebar was reported to disable completely after the topbar hides automatically and another tick of 10 seconds run out , this behavior should be fixed now


Only the Space key has been set for jumping when in mouselook with Shooter keyboard layout , nothing too serious here




fixed non maximised window size reverting to defaults after restart
fixed favoritebar getting disabled after second tick of topbar runs out
fixed logspamming due to Packmule Achievement
fixed some errors in Log
fixed wrong labels for rear view text in camera panel
reworked set window size floater
reworked picks and classifieds floater , still bit WIP tho
renamed Lighting to Lightning since i mean the lightning not the light itself
rearranged Chat settings for a bit cleaner look
added spinners to some windlight sliders to ensure text entry
added automatic fly option to movement panel
added Stability Check Achievement
added Faster than lightning Achievement
added Looks shiny Achievement
added Nice Pic of me Achievement
added Second Life Fanatic Achievement
translated Camera floater shoulder view modes
tweaked some Windlight spinners and sliders
tweaked mouselook jump key to space aswell with shooter layout
tweaked time display to nicely slide out/in making more space for favoritebar
tweaked color of main menu special options
moved edit toolbar buttons to Edit menu
moved right handed editing to Viewer panel
moved Favoritebar from Navigationbar to Statusbar making it able to use the full length


  1. Time to fire this viewer up and see how it performs!

  2. Nice update, no glitches so far.

  3. HI, im wondering if in the shooter layout settings you can add an option somewhere so the arrow keys respond like the WASD, with WASD my av doesnt turn, but goes sideways <3 either way, fucking amazing viewer
