    I just bought a Blackwidow V2, after a while playing some games i started to mess with the lights.
    I noticed that only some game like Overwatch has dynamic light depending on what is happening in the actual game.
    I have been google for some of the games I play, but without any luck to find any profiles for them.
    As I understand you must be a developer and have the SDK. (Didn’t understand if I have to create a game or if I can use it for any game and program a profile.) I don’t have any programing skills so it would not be possible for me.

    So I have a suggestion.
    Maybe this is possible already, if so please let me how.

    What I would like to be able to do is to add another “layer” to the light depending on events (key press).
    Let´s say if I am playing a RTS game I will need to build barracks and resource plants and so on.
    So when I press the key B (building options) I would like to have a new “layer” so I can highlight the keys that is possible to press in the building options in the game.
    (I know that this does not work for in game events like if a new boss appears the keyboard changes color. But key press events would work.)

    If this was possible I would be able to set up my Blackwidow lights for all my games (at least for the RTS games) without waiting for a game developer to add support for it.

    Is there a way to do this now?
    Would I t be possible in the future?

    What other keys do you need? I don't think there is currently a way to do it with a single keypress, but if you're willing to do one more key combination each time, then that should be fairly easy.

    If it's really just the stuff that happens when you want the "building options" keys to change, then I suggest using the profile functionality of the keyboard. On my Blackwidow Chroma Stealth, if I hit Fn+number it will change keyboard profiles. If you have a profile saved with Fn+2 that has only the building options keys lit, then press your "b" to enter that menu, then press Fn+2 to bring up that profile with that lighting. Then when you want to go back to normal just hit Fn+1 (which should be your default profile - if not, then assign your default one to Fn+1).

    Do the same for the other in-game option menus.

    Thanks for your suggestion.

    But that feels a little over the top for me, that is why I wanted to suggest "events". If I have a lot of "levels" B --> Q --> F and so on I have to make a lot of them.

    At the end I won’t be able to remember all the F+number combination I have to press.

    Thanks again.

    Yeah, sorry, that was the only way I could think of doing it right now.

    In Synapse itself, there is an option to submit "feature request" to the developers. It's a good idea - why not submit that request via Synapse?
