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.

Tuesday, December 3, 2013 Maintenance Update #4

                    PLEASE REDOWNLOAD, I FIXED AND ADDED SEVERAL THINGS                 
 PLEASE NOTE THAT I'M NOT GOING TO UPDATE THIS ANYMORE FOR QUITE SOME TIME,     PROBABLY UNTIL CHRISTMAS OR NEXT YEAR SINCE I'M BUSY PLAYING STARBOUND              UNTIL I'M JUST A BRAINDEAD ZOMBIE. YOU SHOULD REALLY CHECK THIS AWESOME                                                                              GAME OUT!                                                                     

Here we go again!

I got some small but AWESOME changes for you!

User Interface:

I fixed the version history link in Login screen (Release Notes), changed several Panels especially People which was a bit too broad by default and i fixed Notices missing the "send" button. 

First noticable changes are probably the (again) changed loadingscreens and the general redo of the loadingscreen which will now nicely slide out that "Cancel" button when the TP or login is done.



For those who are blind, your body is no longer locked to your camera which was always locked at the center of your Avatar. This changes NAO. Your camera is always locked to your HEAD that means if your Avatar runs around, you (your camera) will do too! also, animations now have a way greater impact on your Mouselook feel, they will add bobbing n stuff depending on your animation ofcourse. Please note that this is prone to bug out completely on totally unrealistic and spastic animations like doing 10 flips to walk around.

Suggestion: Use this feature in combination with Mouselook Smoothing.

You can find the option to toggle this feature off in Preferences - Camera - Mouselook Options.

Also fixed forever shall now be attachments bugging out in Mouselook, ever seen when your weapons or hand attachments move wierdly away from where they should be when going into Mouselook and especially when crouching? FIXED! So much thanks to Adeon Writer for this fix.


I added all the old Windlight presets minus my own "Realistic" ones since they were designed for pre-Exodus Post Render.




Added: "AllowUIHidingInML" Feature to allow hiding or keeping the UI in Mouselook.
Added: "AvatarRotateThresholdMouselook" to control turn degree for Mouselook seperatly. Default is 120 to allow looking around a bit before turning around visually.
Added: "AvatarRotateThresholdMouselook" to Preferences -> Camera.
Fixed: Realistic Mouselook not working when sitting on ground.
Fixed: MAINT-3375 - Performance decrease with opened Chat windows.
Fixed: ATI R9 200 Video Card beeing not recognized. Really this time.

Fixed: Cache Location button controlling Log Path Location.
Fixed: ATI R9 200 Video Card beeing not recognized.


Added: "Realistic Mouselook" feature, preventing your camera beeing always centered on (0 0 0) and your body beeing locked into place below your camera. Animations will fully play out now and your Avatar will be able to run around in mouselook, your camera will follow your body around.
Added: Alot Sky/Day/Water presets from Nirans Viewer.
Added: One missed out sky preset.
Added: Version History link to Loginscreen.
Added: Halfway done German translation for main 'Display' panel. WIP.
Changed: Re-made all loadingscreen pictures.
Changed: Progress panel layout, rearranged everything a bit to fit the new images.
Changed: Layout of Progress panel, moved cancel button behind progressbar and random tips over it.
Changed: Hide "Cancel" button panel in Progress panel instead of the button itself, causes a nice slide effect at the end. :)
Changed: Layout of Inventory panel slightly and added a top "title" bar.
Changed: German Inventory item count strings to match those of the English version.
Changed: Default People floater size. Made it smaller by default.
Changed: Layout of People panel to fit previous People floater changes.
Changed: Layout of Group Info main panel to fit the new People floater default size.
Fixed: Avatar beeing shortened in mouselook causing attachments to glitch out on movement. Much Thanks to Adeon!
Fixed: Youtube background video not working anymore.
Fixed: MU Pose chat not working in Local Chat.
Fixed: Newly created Notices beeing un-sendable and changed its layout to fit into the new People floater.
Fixed: Version Number in Loginscreen showing [VERSION] [CHANNEL] instead of Version and Channel.
Fixed: Log Path button not working.
Removed: Sorting out some previously added presets.
Cleanup: Misc changes.
