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.


Before you continue to the download page you should read the following blog pages, they might answer a lot of your questions before they even form.

Automatic Alpha Masking
Movement Controls
User Interface Tour

You may want to visit the Discord Channel too!

Additionally you should also read the Privacy Policy.

If you're done reading and your head hasn't pop'd like a balloon yet you're free to go. If it did pop, NO GO FOR YOU. Head pop means brain gone, brain is a recommended system requirement.

  • AVX Version is for modern CPU's starting at AMD FX 6000 Series and Intel equivalents.
  • Non-AVX Version is for older-than-above CPU's before 2011/12.

In doubt, use AVX. If the Viewer does not start up and does not give you any error message, use the non-AVX version, each version can simply be installed over the other.

Should you get an error message on startup and you use Windows 10 you'll need to head over to the Microsoft website and download the latest Visual C++ Redistributable 2013 and Visual C++ Redistributable 2015/2017/2019/2022 X64 package, the Viewer requires it, comes with its DLL files but Windows 10 with all the latest updates requires new ones.

DO NOT download the Viewer anywhere else other than from these links! The Viewer is ONLY available from here and only for Windows.
