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.

2.3.3 Alpha

Here we go!

Totally untested, half-assed and without any love and mood and/or time to do anything right now, i present you the 2.3.3 Alpha which is basically just a merge with the latest Linden Release (including the new particle rendering functions) and Linden Bear which is a collection of misc fixes (including a fix for an ATI crash some people seemed to have with the latest driver version)

As said, this Release is completely untested, use it at your own risk!

Changes include a slight Machinima Sidebar overhaul, aswell as some new options there and most importantly the Greyscale and Posterization post processing options which i were showing off in my group, however, these arn't finished in any way keep that in mind.



2.3.3 Alpha

Added: WIP Greyscale and Posterization post effect + toggles and Posterization samples option.
Fixed: Width/Height display in Preview Texture moves with the left size causing it to clip outside of its specified area.
Fixed: Exopostprocess having problems with the new shader uniform system.
Changed: WIP Machinima Sidebar overhauling, added Greyscale and Posterization toggles and changed the layout to quickly show which options are linked and how.
Merged: 3.6.7 Release
Merged: 3.6.8 Release
Merged: Viewer Bear (Misc fixes)


  1. in a word: Amazing


  2. So is there any chance we can see the following features in updates for either of your viewers(*Is not sure if you're still working on Nirans or not*)
    Dropdown menu that stores multiple accounts
    Ability to add our AO's into the viewer
    The option to change between the Black Dragon UI and Nirans Viewer UI
    The ability to use downloadable UIs
    The ability to remove the favorites bar, without removing the adress bar
    Able to re-size the camera controls.

    1. No. Privacy reasons.
      No. Not possible without having massive double code or extremly hacky UI change code for both types.
      Already possible but unlikely there will be any downloadable skins from anyone else than myself.
      No. UI limitations.
      No. Camera controls are designed to be as small as possible and not be resizable, which totally destroys the reasoning behind designing them as they are.

  3. The one feature I would love to have in any SL viewer would be the option to add folders to the Favorites bar as you can in nearly every web browser out there. I always found it odd that LL failed to do this when it made the switch to a "Browser-Like" interface..

    One can only dream. Thanks for your work :)
