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 64x - Beta 3 "Bit Dragon"

Usability update #3.
The last one for now.

The biggest pile of changes was writing all the tool tips for the remaining tabs, they have all been tipped with a tool if you know what i mean. This includes the panels 'Notifications', 'Controls', 'General', 'Privacy', 'Sound & Media', 'Keybindings', 'Viewer', 'Chat', 'Browser' and 'RLVa' with RLVa being the worst out of them all, i'm hardly a RLVa user and i don't know what most of these options do, i tried my best explaining what i could get from the already existing tooltips and debug descriptions but don't count on them being 100% accurate. Other tabs have gotten some improvements too, namely 'Display' tab's tooltips have been improved even further.

I overhauled the 'Animation' (Animator) tab in the Animation Controls window (which is now called 'Pose/Animation Manipulator') in an attempt to speed up animation creation and make it easier to make changes to it.

I fixed the Poser being overwritten by these pesky AnyPose posestands and moved the entire window from the 'World' menu to the 'My Useful Features' menu.

As said in the last post, i was unhappy with the 'Derender' option so i moved it out of the 'Render Avatar' menu and into the main menu to the rest of the avatar specific actions.

I disabled the pesky 'Launch the BD_Launcher instead' notification for now until we actually have a working launcher.

Controls on some vehicles that utilize Shift + Left/Right should now also work, i also added the Move Left/Right option to the sitting menu in case you want to rebind them.

This is pretty much it for now. 3 Updates focused solely on improving the interface and usability, it was a lot of work and there is still much more to do but this should at least improve on the worst parts. Also... no pictures... why the fuck are there no pictures in this post... i have to fix this.
