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 - Update 2.9.8 "Spring Dragon"

Scorched Earth.

This is merely a small bugfix update to get rid of some small but pesky troublemakers.

No more crashing when closing the Viewer while preferences is still open. Yo dawg i heard you like closin' the Viewer so i fixed a close crash so you can close all windows while closing the Viewer...without crashing.

The input/output microphone tab didn't work either, should be fixed now too.

Also enabled coordinates in the navbar by default because let's be honest why the fuck isn't this default.

Last but not least, shadow distance which was changed in the last update introduced an issue that might have caused you to have no or only extremely pixelated shadows unless you changed the shadow distance manually, this update renames the debug setting and changes the sliders to allow much finer tuning, this should automatically reset the shadow distance option to its proper working values. Also 1 is now pretty much 1m distance rather than having to set 192 to get like 4-8m distance depending on which slider you were using.

A new sky preset has found its way into the Viewer too.... it's the one i used for the dancing snake and snake pose picture in the 2.9.6 post. Called 'Dramatic Fog'.
