    A new and unique way to let your twitch audience interact with you on stream.

    Want to stand out from the crowd?
    Want to give your audience a different way to interact with the stream?
    Do you only have one screen and don't want to miss viewers?
    Chroma Twitch Alerts is what you are looking for!

    Set up custom notifications for Twitch and TwitchAlerts/Streamlabs:
    • Follow
    • Subscriptions
    • Donations
    • Hosts
    • Bits
    • Chat Keywords
    • Number of Chatlines said

    How to use
    1. Download and unpack the zip-File wherever you like
    2. Start "ChromaAlerts.exe"
    3. Click on "Twitch" to connect to the Twitch API
    4. If you're using Streamlabs for Donations click on "streamlabs" to connect to their API (this will disable everything from the twitch-API except for Chat notifications)
    5. Click on the Arrow beside "Configuration" and set your desired colors (or set it to wave as you like)
    6. For Chat-Notifications make sure the checkbox beside "Chat" is ticked, click on Edit to configure the Keyword alerts ("ChatMessageContains") as well as the number of Chatlines before the notification plays ("ChatMessageLines").
    7. Give it a try by using Streamlabs Test-Alerts!
    8. You're ready to stream!
    Known Issues
    • Kraken v2: After playing an alert on the Kraken v2 it stays black. This is currently a firmware limitation and Razer is working on a fix.

    Using it with other Integrations
    Chroma Twitch Alerts is designed to give back control to other Apps using Chroma. That means you can have both running. To make sure the Chroma Twitch Alerts lighting is on top of the game lighting you can rearrange the Apps in Synapse under "CHROMA APPS" -> "Apps List".

    Thank you to Sombrero19 for testing it out and giving Feedback!

    This is really awesome! Kinda like the idea of hijacking a streamers chroma devices just buy following/subscribing :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
    Great work!

    Maybe the next community event? ;)

    Once I get my hands on an Ornata Chroma definitely, but until then I am afraid not :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Great job! And that's why open source is the future, so many amazing things coming to Chroma peripherals, and I'm happy because there is even more to come!

    @Vaypron Not sure if following Putins orders is a good thing... ;P

    Let me know when someone is using it!
    Would love to watch the stream and see it in action!

    Also if there are any issues just let me know!

    Okay nice idea, but can it really be right that the app is using between 15 and 20% of a 6700K CPU ?
  13. WolfspiritM

    WolfspiritM Active Member


    No that's not right.
    Can you please try this version and see if it fixes the high cpu load?

    This one dont use that much CPU power and there are also more files in this one from the link, than in the one you get from the workshop

    Really cool program wolf thanks for sharing. Question is there a way we could add or make profiles for the wave effect like being able to change the wave colors and what not?
  17. WolfspiritM

    KLLSWITCH (Thanks!) made me aware that Twitchalerts changed their endpoint so ChromaAlerts failed to connect to their service. Also there was an issue with Colors falling back to the Sub Color. Both should be fixed in this version:

    I will get the Chroma workshop updated soon.

    Sadly the Wave-Effect is the default one that comes with the SDK. The only customization a developer can do to it is Reverse the direction. To make a custom wave I would need to make it "from scratch". So for now it's not possible. Sorry.

    So I just wanted to tell you that I got the same Kraken v2 problem With my Firefly. It stays black and when I get donation the ChromaAlerts.exe crashes. Yes I use the latest version of TwitchChromaAlerts.

    There is a new Version available here:

    It would be nice if you guys could try it out and see if it works as expected.
    - Added installer
    - Reworked backend
    - Reworked UI
    - Voice Prompter which notifies you when you stopped talking for a while as a reminder to keep talking.
    - Improved handling of errors

    As there are many changes in this version maybe you can give it a try if your issue with donations is fixed.
    If it isn't, then there is a log in:
    Please check if there is any error marked as "FATAL" and send it to me via PN here.
