    Yeah, that's the thing... the SDK version that the visualizer currently supports is the old SDK (no support for Tourney Edition). Now that a new SDK for Tourney Edition is out, I suppose the visualizer needs to be updated for the changes.

    Can't wait till it starts working!

    The engineers are not currently focused on backwards compatibility while it's still in Beta, so it's safer to only upgrade the SDK as an when your favourite games/software supports it. :)

    Here is the link to my new visualizer code (it's a Visual C++ project for VS2015 Community Edition).


    It works with BW Chroma (non-TE), Firefly, and Mamba TE for sure. I don't have a BW Chroma TE to test it on so someone who does have one can give it a try.

    Here is a binary (remove the .txt, I sent it through gmail and gmail doesn't like .exe)


    Use VB Audio Cable/Virtual Audio Cable/etc. or your sound card's loopback as usual. I may look into WASAPI loopback but that would be a big change over using OpenAL.

    I'm told that the BW TE would work just fine. I'd certainly look into WASAPI loopback as it would make it easier for people to use the visualiser, or at least look into creating an installer to do most of the legwork.

    Got the .exe working but for Blackwidow Tournament Edition it just makes the keyboard go dark and nothing shows up on the keyboard.

    Visualization in the .exe shows that the music is playing but nothing appears on the TE while the .exe runs, it is just dark.

    Pity I didn't bring my BW to work with me today. Can't wait to give this version a go!

    It supports the Mamba though! OH MY GOD IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL!

    Fantastic work with the WASAPI ;)

    I tried to get this and it worked fine, but I just tried to stop it and now all of my lighting profiles don't work. The macros work fine but the lights do nothing. Does anyone know how to fix this.

    I restarted my PC and it seems fine now. Just a bit inconvenient.

    Yep, I believe on Windows 10 at least you will need to restart once you have installed the SDK.
  13. Sir do you have any idea why this program not working on my pc?
    I already follow all the steps given. Thank you.

    If you're still having missing *140.dll DLL issues, reinstall the Visual C++ Redistributable 2015 (32-bit version) installer again. That is the solution, nothing else. Those files are provided by that installer. Saying it didn't work means you did something wrong, plain and simple. Make sure you use the 32 bit (x86) version, even if you are on a 64 bit (x64) OS. The program is 32 bit and it needs 32 bit dlls. Do not go find dll downloads from random sites, that's a one way ticket to virus land. If you're missing the Chroma SDK dll, follow the SDK installation instructions including the .reg file.

    Im getting a 404 error on both of those links
  17. Does anyone make it work with BWCTE?

    BWCTE support is coming, Razer's developer contact said he'd send me one to add support for along with Deathadder Chroma and Kraken Chroma. For those single LED devices I'm thinking about a pulsing brightness based visualizer.
  19. COOL! Cant wait to use them! Thank you @CalcProgrammer1

    It's not working for me. When I open the program I can see the waves inside the program, but they don't show up on my keyboard :/
