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 Viewer - Update "Experienced Update"

Experience is here!

If you are an experience creator don't bash me for a non functional creation UI. I do not have proper access to the creation process of experiences, i'm not premium and thanks to Linden Lab's ass-backwards pay-wall aka pay2win approach on this i will never have normal access to it. I do not plan to go Premium, ever especially NOW after this massive disaster and i'm not willing to take the UI apart piece by piece and force enable all things (even then i couldn't guarantee that it works since i still wouldn't be able to actually create one).

Note you do not need this update to experience Experience but you will need this update to create and manage Experiences.

This Update also includes my Snapshot floater improvements i'm currently working on in the Linden Viewer. See BUG-9325/STORM-2118. I forgot to add the changes so i did that just now.

Added: Experiences menu entry to main menu.
Added: BUG-9325 contributions to my name.

Merged with Linden Release.
Merged Experience.
Merge with Snapshot Improvements

  1. >>to experience Experience
    Noted in my epic epic Word Combinations book of epic Word Combinations book.

    1. experienced as in someone is experienced, advanced, accumulated some experience.

  2. Media works in this but regular sound (gestures, interface noises, avatar noises) do not work. To make sure I downgraded to last version before this one without changing settings and sound works again.

    Things I tried:
    -Checking if anything is muted. (nothing muted)
    -Checking if the right sound device is selected. (it is)
    -Checking to make sure sound works in other applications (it does)
    -Cleared all application settings and did a clean install.
    -Checked if an older version has working sound (it does and this is a permanent fix for now)

    1. Working on it, must have fucked up on compile.

  3. I wanted also report the missing audio channel, but that has already been done.
    Another small bug is inside the Experience floater. The "Allowed" tab (German "Zulässig") for my avatar is empty. It should display this but shows only this. Therefore I can not change anything in the Experience Profile floater. All buttons are greyed out.

    The rest of the experience tabs looks quite good.

    1. You cannot use the buttons on linden realms, it says "this is enabled for everyone", automatically. You do not need to allow it. The rest is something i'll look into.
