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 3.2.2 "Caring Dragon"

This update comes with a whole host of improvements all around.

Chat, Camera, General and Privacy tabs in preferences have been revamped for increased consistency in the layout and looks of all preferences panels. The joystick/flycam configuration window has been totally redone too!

Lots of warnings fixed, code and files cleaned up and defunct options and widgets remove.

Also the biggest addition is the ability (finally) to change permissions via the friendlist either via the menu at the top or the gear menu... or the right click menu... speaking of right click menu, you can also change the permissions in ANY right click menu now. Awesome. Please note that permissions will not update in your friendlist unless you force them to (untick view permissions and then retick it), i swear i tried automating it the last 3 days without success... idk why it doesn't work but hey, it doesn't refresh via webprofiles either, nor does in the LL Viewer.

Screen Space Reflections have been slightly improved and they should no longer vanish in closed rooms on certain surfaces depending on the camera angle.

Besides these, lots of small improvements have been added and bugs have been fixed all over the place such as the texture selection that should work again, selecting "cancel" in the color picker will no longer revert to 0 alpha, highhlighting transparent will no longer lock your depth of field focus and hiding your UI will no longer break looking up and down via left or right-click drag, speaking of, right click-drag now works with the UI hidden too! Miniprofiles have had their look improved and your own dot on the minimap is now colored blue by default.

MOST IMPORTANTLY: Opening tabs in preferences will now change the "+" icon to a "-" icon. WOW. Mind blown.

I hope you like it.


  1. I assume it was this build where existing user created poses with spaces in their name will no longer load. Either way, I can rename the pose files on my end to use %20's (where spaces would be). Creating new poses in this build saves the poses with %20 characters in place of the spaces, so loading them will work fine. Is your intention is to use the %20 naming approach?

    1. Sorry. Not just %20's, but rather, do you intend to use encoded naming from now on?

    2. Yes, from now on (and i should have done so from the beginning) i use encoded naming, the reason i changed this now is due to a bug that surfaced that made deleting these poses impossible.
