    Hey guys,

    just finished my first Chroma App after and I put quite some effort into it. It's meant to bring Rocket League ingame events to the Blackwidow Chroma.

    Check it out in action here:

    This piece of software is currently defect, it does not work any more.
    In one of the latest patches, Psyonix apparently changed the log level, meaning I can't detect events anymore. At this time, I am investigating alternate means to do so but it is not looking good.

    Please note that so far I can only guarantee this works with the Blackwidow Chroma
    I don't know what happens when you try to use different models of chroma keyboard or have additional mice, etc. attached to your PC, since I don't own any of these devices.

    Current version: 1.1.1 as of 2016-10-01
    Broken, all previous versions are defect, too due to a change by Psyonix

    Now with comprehensive guide how to use:
    • Grab latest version here
    • Unzip Folder in zip wherever you like
    • Make sure Chroma Apps are enabled in Razer Synapse, image guide
    • Navigate to unzipped folder and run RocketLeagueChromaControl.exe
    • Hit the "Take the shot" button to launch Rocket League
    • Do not be alarmed when Windows Smartscreen gets in your way launching for the fist time, obviously Microsoft hasn't seen my application around enough.

    For those interested, sources are available on github. Only download the sources if you know how to c++ and stuff, if your just want to play with fancy lights, download the release from here.

    This is seriously cool! I love it when community members discover really cool ways to create chroma effects for games that don't support it officially. Great work!

    You'll be hearing from @Razer|Rfx soon :)

    This is really impressive, nice work. Rocket League is a major title, and a lot of the user base here will really using this.

    Good stuff - will hopefully see it on Chroma Workshop some time soon.

    Very neat, I would download it if I got the chroma but I got the bw2016.

    I had a typo in my chromaAppInfo.xml, which I think led to all kinds of problems, v1.0.3 is out to fix that!

  7. Would love to test this out, but I have no idea where to put the files. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks dude, appreciate it. It's not easy to make nice effects that run at 30hz and interpolate between keys. Thinking of improving the "go" animation though, the tiny arrow doesn't do it for me anymore. General question for everyone: one more thing I could do with the events I can grab is display an animation for finding match, but I for one mostly do that while training and I don't know if it will be too distracting. Thoughts?

    Amazing! I love the lighting during the countdown and how all the lights turn white when someone scores a goal!

    Just uploaded version 1.0.5 - barring any major bugs this will be the first version to be submitted to the chroma workshop. This version should now always launch Rocket League with the log-window enabled, no matter what your settings in Steam are.

    I realized that wasn't the case for every version including 1.0.4, so special thanks for everyone that managed to test it anyway by manually adding the launch paramter in Steam!

    Hello, first time on these forums and pretty much a newbie with the blackwidow chroma. I really like the idea you have here with the app the only problem i have is getting it to work, when I use your steps to get it running i get this error:

    Runtime error!

    This application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
    Please contact the application's support team for more information.

    Is there any pointers you could give me? do you think its a c++ problem?

    I hit the "Take the shot" button but got a error- /
    :warning:Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Runtime Error
    :negative_squared_cross_mark:This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.​
    What's wrong?

    Sadly i have the same error as ZeusiQ and Razer_Lover. I have razer blackwidow chroma tournament edition, clean win10 pro (not upgrade), latest synapse, some other chroma apps are working fine.

    Hey guys, thanks a ton for the feedback, especially reporting errors! Sorry you're having trouble. Could you answer the following questions, via direct message to me if you like to keep the info private:
    1. Everyone is having crashing when hitting the button to launch Rocket league?
    2. Which localized version of Windows are you using? Something more exotic like Asian languages? (I'm reading a registry key when you hit the launch button, this should use Unicode but testing in different windows localizations is hard to impossible for me).
    3. Please note that I can only launch Rocket League if you bought it on Steam and completed the first time setup for the game (launched it once from Steam, ever).

    I am currently on the move so I won't have fixes before early next week. Until then, whatever info you could provide makes it more likely I can locate the error.

    In general, thank you for your interest and feedback!
