SkyBox Viewer in action. Once you have successfully created a .bisb file with the SkyBox Stuffer, all you need to do is run the Viewer, select 'File/Open' and open the file. Pressing the 'Escape' key will bring up a little dialog box that will allow you to toggle between windowed and full-screen modes.

We've made one .bisb file available for download so you can see how it's supposed to work. It's not particularly high resolution; nonetheless, click here to download a skybox scene inspired by the Laramie Range in Southeast Wyoming (.zip, 1.27 MB).

Click here to download a .zip containing the compiled program, C++ source code and VS2008 project files. (By downloading this package you agree to abide by the license terms outlined here.) If you want to rebuild the project from the source you'll need the free PngLib image library, available here. This version of the SkyBox Viewer was built with version 1.2.33 of the Png library.
