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.

Black Dragon Update "Deformed Update"

It's quite some time since i last made an update, i'm sorry about that... i feel like Firestorm now. Horrible.

This update brings quite some changes under the hood, not much from me, just a bit fleshing out the UI, other than that a possible fix for RLVa (couldn't test it because a certain person was never online) and a possible crash fix that was introduced with my connectivity issues panel.

This is the altered friendlist look, there are no accordions anymore and the "All" list is now sorted by status by default, that should clean up the friendlist a bit more and make it uniform with the rest of the panel. It's also blue now. I might add more colors in future updates.

Most important change in this update is the inclusion of all Linden Labs updates up to the very latest available changes. This includes a system that intelligently tracks deformations of your shape and should be able to properly undo them when de-attaching those attachments causing deforms. Yes lads you heard right, NO MORE RELOGS FOR DEFORMER AVATARS. I tested it with the Sergal (in pic) and it worked flawlessly, it did not work on the ONA Bunny however as it seems to use some special deformation with animations that won't stop, all other normal bone deformations were correctly stopped tho. Yay!


I heard you like dicks and high res snapshots, so i made you some 6k (~6.000 x 3306) snapshots for your pervert viewing pleasure. Remember this is a mature blog and we all are mature so please no childish discussions about a certain tiny peen of mine *badam tsch*.

If you want to see them full resolution: left click -> right click -> open url in a new tab.
Unless you use a crappy browser.


Misc: Added an experiment in shaders, might use it someday.
(Possibly) Fixed: RLVa detach and re-attach issues via RLVa commands.
(Possibly) Fixed: Crash caused by the connection issues panel when the region becomes invalid.
Fixed: Compiling.
Changed: Max. value for Video Memory in Display Settings to 1024mb.
Changed: Increment steps for Shadow Blur Size in Display Settings to 0.1.
Changed: Hide the connection issues panel from start to prevent it from popping up for a second on login.
Changed: Friendlist layout, removed accordions and facebook integration, sort by online status by default.
Changed: Appearance floater outfit status color.
Changed: Show worn items in Appearance as italic instead of bold.
Changed: Beacon color to Steam blue-ish.
