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.

1. April.


So...now that 1. April is over... i can tell you what's really going on, first things first. The April Fools joke was that it wasn't a joke, means i joked about joking. Evil, really evil. Second is...the reason why, the Viewer isn't yet accepted for TPV, i suppose it takes a bit longer than just a few days... probably a week or so (that's pretty much what it took last time). That means for you, no update until the Viewer goes TPV, which could be tomorrow... or in 2 days.. or in a week, i don't know, really! It's all up to Tia Linden.

Did i promise an update for today?


Did you really think i would make an update on 1st of April? Ohhohohoho...but wait... it's the 1st of April... doesn't that mean that this blogpost could be a joke and the real joke would be releasing an update regardless? Maybe...maybe... i just want you to think that...maybe i want you to think that because today is the 1st of April this blogpost is a joke and in real it isn't, wouldn't that be an evil joke? Maybe... i just want you to think that i'm fooling you by telling you that this is not a joke which would be the joke because i said i won't release an update but still doing it, getting your hopes up but then actually not releasing an update... or maybe not?! Who knows! Maybe my update announcement was the joke and i just announced it before the 1st of April to make it sound trustworthy? Maybe...maybe not. Maybe i don't even know it myself! Maybe THAT'S the joke!...well maybe not.

  3. So we can't use the old viewers, but there's no new release? I'm confused.

    Will the new release finally let me watch movies in world?

    I've avoided logging in until the new version is out, just cuz I hate the other ones. :-(

    1. 1. You can use all versions you still got. Only the latest one will be up for download from now on, this should prevent people from downloading or re-downloading older versions.

      2. The quicktime plugin hasn't been changed. If you can't watch videos in world then get a new TV which uses webmedia surfaces (which are outdated and not supported anymore too).

  4. Can I ask you a question? About the camera angle: in previous versions it was easy to chose between the traditional SL "Top view" and the Niran "Shoulder view". Now I don't find a way to change the camera angle anymore. There is a "camera" tab in options, but I find no way to change between camera set-up. Or did I miss something?

    1. You're looking for the Camera button. Right-click one of your toolbar buttons and select "choose toolbar buttons" (or CTRL + Alt + B) and drag n drop the Camera button into a toolbar.
