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.

12. August Update

Today i worked some more on the Viewer burst wise, got some things fixed, no release planned however.

I added the new URL tags again allowing us to write in red, green, blue, bold, italic and underline again.

I added the save/load camera position feature again.

I changed the the Texture Preview floater layout, fixed it up and made it use less screen space =D

I changed sound previews to SFX sounds, muting the UI will now still play sounds when you play them locally.

I fixed the color picker for Diffuse textures.

I changed the layout of the Texture Console so it doesnt look all weird and overlapping anymore.

I finally came around to add the double arrow texture for the World Map/Snapshot floater and also fixed the World Map layout aswell as the "For Sale" icon.

I removed the "Press ESC to return to world view" label in Mouselook which is extremly annoying and totally destroys immersion...like a watermark...

That's it for today! Going to play some more Guild Wars 2.


  1. oh nice. so good to see some of old stuff returning and some new stuff. missed a lot of things of old one he-he. and viewer current version anyway runs good on a crappy FX 6300 since i blew my Intel board out about 10 days ago also where did get the bunny like fur av? one with pink texture screen never seen that anywhere. then again don't really shop like i use to.

    1. It's the same black bunny from my previous posts. Just retextured.

      ONA (Orange Nova Avatars) Bifrost Bunny

  2. oh i see i knew it was same one just wondering where av style was from just cute so had to ask since it was bugging me hehe

  3. My Norton Internet Security is giving me the following message when I install v 2.30:

    Are you sure this file is OK?

    1. https://www.virustotal.com/de/file/7f9b064cb32b93a4c50c5ec25d6ebfd253139ee448c22502ed5651663b1cc1e4/analysis/1377147748/

      As far as i can tell the SHA is the same, so the files are identical, all Anti-Virus programs didn't trigger.

    2. I would send it to Virustotal too if i were you.

    3. I'd get something besides Norton Antivirus. Norton's is notorious for bugging out other programs and your pc in general.
