    Nicely done! Great to see you're using the Colore library too.

    Not sure if you're aware about the Chroma Workshop? That's where all these apps are being featured now. There's another app similar to yours, but don't let that stop you as we've discovered with GameDog and Chroma Sync, people have different preferences.

  3. Hey, thanks for your feedback.
    Yeah i have seen this Workshop thing, but didn't read the article on apps yet. And now that you told me i have also seen this other app. Actually i don't realy unterstand what its doing but it definitaly don't do the same as mine :D
    Mine just copys the avarage color of the bottom edge from the screen on the representive position.

    Bumb, New Version...
    (If this isn't ok with the board rules, i won't do it anymore. Maybe a mod can give me a hint :) )

    Generally, bumping is not allowed, but due to the nature of the thread it's excluded as it's a useful way to let people it has been updated. Bumping for a reaction would not be allowed.

    I can't seem to get this working as it should.
    the bottom edge of most games / videos I'm watching is black either it's a toolbar, windows start bar or just the black bars from 16/9 video. so it makes the keyboard go all black.
    even if I stretch the video so it covers onto the bottom edge of the screen it doesn't color the full keyboard. only the Function keys, numberkeys and the first row of letterkeys.
    the others stay black.
  6. Hi. Very much thanks for your feedback. I'm going do do some changes this weekend.

    The thing is, right now only the bottom edge is taken for the calculation for the color for the keys. I'm going to add a parameter for this where you can adjust which part of the screen is taken for the ambilight... This is what i am working right now, to get this parameter working to be set visualy (like Windows snipping tool).

    Also, i added a "rowcolor = edgecolor * 2^row" adjustment calculation to make a fade for each row since the last version. This is also going to be changed to be set as parameter in the config. This is because i liked it more to be darker at the bottom of the keyboard. (Sorry for that: The demo Video shows the old version without including this function) This is why the bottom keys stay black.

    Check out the thread tomorrow and/or sunday for the new release.

    I hope to satisfy you with this changes. And again: Thank you for your feedback

    I have now uploaded the new version with the mentioned changes.
    It would be great if you give me some feedback when you have tried it out.

  7. i dont think it works well with multi monitors, it seems like when i click onto another monitor it lags a bit and switches to the colors on that monitor. its kind of awkward.
    good job on everything else though it is a really neat app
  8. Thanks for the feedback.
    As i thought, the code will bug with multiple display configuration...
    I'm going to get myself a second screen. When i have it i will figure out how to change the code to get this working.

  11. Bumb, new Version.

    New Version is now an Installer.
    Also in the tray menu there is a new option where you can update the software.
    There is no automatic update. I hate software with automatic updates.

    Wow its so cool! I use it all the time now when I watch youtube videos, thanks for developing this program. I can't since its too complicated for me.

    Thanks BlackWorx, it's much better now I can select which zone it uses to get it's colorinformation.
    I can't seem to get it working in some games eg. GTAV or Fallout4 but for videos and just general work this is great.
  16. Sadly the method i'm using to get the color information from the screen isn't working with fullscreen aplications...
    I tried using it with Heroes of the Storm, there its working with a tweak. Either the Game supports windowed fullscreen, which you then can choose and it will work, or it only supports fullscreen and it's not working...

    I love this app works great and I know of one game that it works with in full screen and that's Rust other than that I don't mind playing my games on borderless windowed mode. Great work!
  18. Firefly? Pleeeeeeeeeeassssse?

  19. I would love to code this for the firefly. sadly i dont have one and actualy i am to stingy to buy one...
  20. Ignore my ignorance. Any possible way to make ambient lighting more vivid? Tried messing with screen settings, was getting pretty saturated using that method.
