    Yeah, I noticed that too when I tried it the first time today, but its not that bad. Actually, its pretty easy I wish I had done it sooner.

    But I agree it is sorta hidden, I had to hunt around for a little bit.

    As others have already mentioned I'd like to see things respond a bit quicker. I have an outstanding internet connection and an excellent PC setup, but Cortex still drags most of the time, especially when trying to click to obtain my daily login reward.

    I would really like it when reading through the deals page if it would tell me which of the available vendors also accepted the zGold as payment, maybe something as simple as just adding a little gold coin beside the store icon in the list.

    I'm also a big fan of the dark mode here on Insider, so I'd love to see that theme carried over into Cortex.

    I like how in my own games list I can choose either the list or the grid mode, I wish we had similar options to organize the games when reading the featured list or the deals lists as well.

    I also think it would be great if we could add in a new tab for the zVault in Cortex so we can follow our progress in the application instead of always having to bring up the website.

    I guess that's all the ideas I have right now, thank you for asking! :)

    Just started using Cortex a few days ago.

    The main problem I had now is that the number of silvers i have is not shown on the main stream. I had to click Rewards -> View Dashboard to see the points. Having a zSilver counter at the side and a Dashboard button at the top would be nice.

    Also, I couldn't find out which games are earning zSilvers within cortex as well. I had to google for that.

    It's kind of hidden. Go to Rewards tab, then the Cortex dashboard, then Supported Games:

    Just as many others have said, Cortex needs to be lighter. It is much too demanding for what should be a background app.

    What I would really like is a goal meter for zSilver. Have users set their goal on a certain product they are trying to earn with their zSilver *cough* Blackwidow *cough*.

    Anyways, I have to give huge props for Min and Razer for going to their consumers asking these types of questions instead of making excuses like many other companies do.

    Like some peopel said before, a Dark mode would be awesome.
    one thing that slightly bugs me is when i open a game from cortex it will close out coretex and i have to open a second instance. i like to keep my cortex open on my other screen for streaming. it isnt a problem and i am probably the only person who prefers this.
    i would love to see razercomms come back and be integrated with cortex. this was my favorite program for comms.

    Also, maybe a player can earn say 1.1x rate of the zSilver with any razer hardware used and higher rate if more hardware is connected.

    Honestly, with most available streaming services out there and so many games building that functionality withing the game now, the Gamecaster just seems like a bloatware money-grab at this point. All other streaming software puts less burden on my system and they have as good or better functionality.

    Just hope that steam doesn't decide to allow gamers to broadcast to other platforms in the near future.

    I'd like to see more intergration with the Zvault and insider. It would be nice to have a tab that shows the current Zsilver rewards, news updates, and maybe even featured threads from the insider forums.

    I agree with all of the above, I don't think Razer realizes how "hip" dark mode on the forums really are. Dark mode on Cortex would be the cherry on top of the sundae!

    well i hate to say it but had to remove Cortex and synopses from my new computer it started to mess things up , i did report it a few times with my old gamer pc but now im out $1800. some how when i got an update for the synopses it started to bug every thing on my old one i tried reinstalling them both tried reinstalling window 10pro , and still got the same problem then i ended up getting the blue screen of death :slightly_sad: then nothing would happen it was dead . so i had to get a new computer and downloaded a newer Cortex and synopses and did the installs of them and i started to panic it started doing the same thing , so i had to remove them both from this new pc , i don't make a lot of money can't just run out and buy a 3rd pc so yeah , i do like the keyboard and headphones they are grate just can't use the software :slightly_sad:

    I keep getting notifications a day late (like a whole 24 hours late) so I miss out on flash events such as giveaways. Not likely I'd win, I know, but I'd still like the same chance as everyone else for keeping Cortex active.

    The time it takes to retrieve the daily login bonus is seemingly excessively long. I am not sure if it is the animation or what, but It is easily 3 to 5x's as long as it was on the old daily login reward system.

    A auto zSilver collecting after we login instead of we need to click to obtain the reward? A little bit cosmetic improvement here :

    There seems to be a bug with g-sync monitors. My desktop frame rate drops tremendously when I have Cortex open.

    More lightweight and faster loading.
    How about only less Featured games and less Recommended to keep it from having to load a massive list?
    Also add a GPU, CPU usage and temp monitoring part that links to an app on your phone/tablet (to use as a second screen) like Logitech or Cam.

    I think before improving cortex, make the rewards redeemable for everyone around the world first.

    it's redeemable for everyone around the world, it's just can't send to everyone in the world....
