Black Dragon Viewer Update, as per NiranV Dean:

Black Dragon Viewer: Emergency Release 2.5.6

I didn't expect to make a release this early and in this stage but the situation requires it, its highly likely that Bento will go full release tomorrow so i had to push this update as quick as possible. It contains all the latest stuff i was working on in its current state. Read the patch notes on the blog or login screen for further information as to what changed. The release should be coming up in a few minutes.

EDIT: they already did while i was busy compiling.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU UPDATE TO THIS VERSION

A problem I have had with Black Dragon is:

When I play the streaming audio/radio in any sim, after an hour or so, the stream stops playing and I have to restart it manually.

Sounds like an issue that is present in the LL Viewer as well since 6 years.

Next time i happens could you provide the log file, so i can have a look at whats happening, you can also press ctrl + shift + 4 to open the log console it shows a snipped of the latest log entries, you could keep it open and make a snapshot of it when the stream stops (if theres anything being written into it when the stream stops). Other than that i think there's probably not much i can do about it right now. Stream was always a bugfest and i got really no idea what could be broken there.

Also, selecting different cloud maps in the Windlight editor does not work, even if I restart the viewer. I have to resort to making the "Default" and "clouds2" tga's different. But, they revert back to what they were when I update the viewer.

What I don't know is how to turn off the music that starts playing while I'm typing in my password; I try to beat it to the punch but am frequently too slow. I've turned off the video, but the music persists and I can't find where to fix that. In an ideal world, it wouldn't bother me, but I have volume way down already and the music nonetheless blares at me. Of course, I could adjust the volume every time I log in, then re-adjust it back, but you used to turn it off when I turned off the video and now, it seems independent. Just a small whine, don't mind me.

Thank you for your wonderful viewer; I have long been a fan and this one is very pretty indeed.

I... have done nothing. It's the webbrowser.

Also, if you checked save my password or enabled auto login you wouldn't even get as far as hearing it.

Also, i can't even change the volume of the video, the controls are outside of the window (on purpose) to prevent clicking stuff. You can however still click right at the bottom and the click will go through... i need to fix that...

Also, media sound was initially not supported on login screen, media sound first initialized when you clicked login. Needless to say i changed that for the sole purpose of having the videos with sound, funny i don't even remember how i did it, i just know that i did it somehow, as far as i can remember there actually wasn't anything i changed, it just so happened to work suddenly... and since then i... well kept it that way.

EVERY TIME I TOUCH, IT'S MAGIC.

Always in fullscreen?

love the viewer really do but, kinda bugs me that whenever I click away (two screens) it minimizes and i can't set it to window mode, Is there a way to fix this or is that how the viewer is to be from now on?

I mostly have fun with the atmospheres and WL settings, so many different things can be done.

P.S. too much to look through didn't have a lot of time to look into everything have to go somewhere very soon would like to say sorry for not having the time to find out on my own something so simple.

I don't use multi monitors but the Viewer shouldn't minimize at all unless you specifically click the minimize button. Though from what you say it sounds like you enabled Borderless Fullscreen Mode, you might want to check if that's the case and disable it which should return the Viewer back to Windowed Mode.

I think making this was long overdue...



Next meeting (this friday), if i don't miss it or forget about it, i'll bring this up, a checkbox for projectors to toggle shadows on/off so you can have more than 2 projectors in a room without them fighting for the available shadow spots, that means you can have your main lights use shadows while decorations on the wall are just shadowless directional lights.

EDIT: Showed it to Oz, he's really interested in getting it added. SOON BOYS N GIRLS. SOON™
