They are quite a lot if i see that correctly. I wanted to cleanup windlights at some point and consider adding new ones too but not too much, i don't want to have millions of windlights. I'll have to go through them all manually.

Good lord man! I have not even had a chance to log in with 2.9.9 yet and now I have 2.9.9B!

Just kidding, thanks for taking the time to keep us updated.

Believe I've found a bug. The graphic presets one can make doesn't seem to remember/save closeup, close, far, distant, etc shadowmap size settings.

Tested, it does properly save and load them, it does not refresh the sliders... dang. I'll get that fixed in the next update.

I'm interested in knowing if friendlist sorting is properly working again? Does it sort me to the top when i'm not an actual friend? Also does it sort me normal when i'm a real friend?

Your name is at the top of my friend's list, and we are not friends. (You know, that whole, taking my $L amount from the UI and shoving it in inventory and not making it optional thing.)

Good. That's how its supposed to be. I assume everyone else is properly sorted by status and then name (if you set status) or name directly (if you set name).

I think i should remove your balance display completely, it's totally useless. Have it only display in the Marketplace.

I can't provide you a picture but i can tell you how to:
Preferences - Keybindings
Select "Move Right" and "Move Left" Action, delete them (delete the A / D or Left / Right ones depending on what you want to use)
Select "Turn Right", click "Change Selected" or double click it.
Hit "D" or "Arrow Right" , depending on what you want to use, hit "Bind" to apply.
Repeat the same with "Turn Left" and hit "A" or "Arrow Left" instead.
If you did everything right you should now turn with A / D / Left / Right rather than strafe.

You have to copy the desired windlights over to Black Dragon either into the Black Dragon installation folder
-> app_settings/windlight/skies
or your own AppData folder
-> AppData/Roaming/BlackDragon/user_settings/windlight/skies
Then hit refresh in the windlight editor window to refresh the list of available presets, they should be there if you did everything right.

Preferences - Display - Deferred Rendering (must be checked). If you don't see it it's because glossiness looks different Black Dragon. If your skin makes use of the environment (second glossiness slider) it won't show up as it is disabled by default due to its gruesome and ugly look. You can re-enable it in Preferences - Display - Deferred Rendering - Render Environment Map if you really want it, it will massively decrease the quality of shiny objects in Black Dragon however.

There is none as i believe that it doesn't matter since baking is now serverside unless you mean refreshing textures on objects in which case there is none either.

I wouldn't recommend it, you're going to delete all the windlights that the Viewer is coming with and were made and verified to look good with and replace them with presets from a Viewer that has a completely different graphics/color style.

From what i can see Deferred Rendering is not working for you regardless of the fact that you most likely ticked it. I assume that you're using a laptop and you'll have to enable its dedicated graphics card otherwise Deferred will refuse to work, the only other thing you can try is disable Motion Blur (if it isn't) and trying to run Deferred Rendering again as i heard Intel graphics cards are having issues with it. Though beyond that i can't quite make out what the glowing issue is all about.

Your septum is reverting to a lower level of detail because in Black Dragon the Object Quality option is not altered and left at 2 max by default, most objects in Second Life are created by content creators who have no idea or are simply bad and won't make objects that don't simply become a single triangle on the second of four levels of detail. The only way to counteract this is to set the Object Quality higher though i'd highly recommend not doing so and instead getting a better one.

This is the only one that worries me. Every once in a while, setting it higher than 4 can be beneficial for taking pictures of a wide, scenic area at high resolution.

I would suggest instead making it so that setting anything higher than 4 gets reset at login, so it's never able to be set permanently.

It has been put aside, due to Bento incompatibility. Snake is now in but will be put aside too when the time comes, namely when the Fenra releases and then i can finally start working on my planned Black Dragon introduction video that i've been keeping back for over 1.5 years now.
