    I'm super impressed with this! The only problem I'm having is that once I've downloaded and installed the program, I'm not seeing an icon in the taskbar tray (icon tray?) in order to open and use the program.

    Could you help me get it figured out? I'd love to be using this! Thank you!

    I apologize... I had uninstalled and reinstalled it three times before posting the first message here, but after I just tried it again, I saw the folder it was installing to.

    For anyone else that was experiencing this issue, here's what I did to get it to work:

    I went to the folder ( C:\Program Files (x86)\esdev\Blackwidow Ambiente ) (of course, it may be different for you, depending on how your files are labeled. To make sure you're going into the right folder, check to see the path it's installing to after you've downloaded the file and open it for the first time.) in File Explorer and clicked on the application titled "BlackWidowAmbiente" and then the icon showed up in the Task Bar Icon Tray (on the bottom right of your screen).

    Once the icon shows up, right click it and click Configuration. From there, just follow the steps the OP/App Creator mentioned for configuring it to work for your computer!

    And thanks, BlackWorx! Great app! Keep up the good work!

  5. What exactly do you mean with vivid?

    I'm sorry for this. I'm a good programmer but this is the first programm i code which has an installer.
    I do have to figure out how to make a shortcut to the desktop and also autostart after installation.

    I'll create a PDF included in the installation package which can also be opened through the app itself.
    Maybe also a video.

    I love it. Looks great with fullscreen area choose. The software then but uses all Pixels of the screen which causes the slow reaction time. I'll do some tweaks when i'm home from work. I'll post this here then.

    Refresh rate is now smoother. You can download the installer here or via update in app.
    If you update, please kill BlackwidowChroma.exe with taskmanager after the updater started the installer!!! Then continue installing.
    Otherwise the exe won't be updated!
    I have a bug right now, which doesn't close the app...

    Now finally with new UI. In Razer style of course

    So I just got it to work with double monitors :D You already have support built in (dunno if it's tested?) but that doesn't make the cut for me. It keeps grabbing my laptop screen as main screen. Here's what I do.

    0. Don't boot the ambient light software. If you've got it running, shut it down.
    1. Press Windows key + P and select the 'external monitor only'. This disables your main (laptop) screen completely.
    2. Now boot the software. Configure for your current monitor, it should only give 1 display in the dropdown menu, and that is your external/second monitor.
    3. Once everything works, press Windows key + P again untill you select 'expand' (not sure if it's called expand, I work on Dutch windows, but you'll probably know what I mean here. Can someone verify?)
    4. Your second screen should now start working again, but the ambient software still stays functional for the display you just configured it on.

    Thanks for building this great piece of software!

  14. Hi, thanks for your feedback.

    Could you tell me your system setup? Which windows are you using? Since you have the dropdown menu, you have the latest version.

    Sorry, if its not working. On my system it worked well...
    If you choose your secondary display and then click on the region button, on which display can you select the region?

    I'm using windows 10 on a laptop (17.3" screen), and I plug in a 27" monitor whenever I'm at home. If there's anything more you'd like to know, just ask.

    I also add my naga, blackwidow and orbweaver for the desktop experience, much like the razer core.. :)

    Obviously this may be way too early to determine... but do you know if it will work on the stealth keyboard as well?

    I need a Blackwidow. After Christmas, I'm getting a Blackwidow just to get this app.
  18. Why not, its the same Keyboard. It only has other switches.

    This sounds weird. It should work... I will try it out with my surface and a second screen. Maybe then i will find the bug here...

    AWESOME! I just ordered my stealth today :) But it won't ship until Feb 12th... and my classes start 1/27... hmm... But - I think it was worth buying over other laptops and having them more immediately
  20. If you ment the Blade Stealth, i have to apologize, because i then got you wrong.
    I thought you mean the Blackwidow Chroma Stealth...

    If so, there is no SDK Support yet, so it won't work. If if there will be, i guess then there still won't be compatibility for this app, because i do not have a Blade, nor i intend to buy one, so i won't be able to test it.
