Release V1.6

Added support for razer naga and razer firefly (can't test it, but it should work). If you are on Version 1.5. restart Razer Ambilight and you should be asked to update. Otherwise download the newest release from here. ^^

For me it works! ♥️ thaaaanks ♥️
its perfect! if you could please lessen the cpu load it would be even better. my 6600k loads about 20-25%
Can't really figure out what's going on but after installing and running the .exe, nothing happens? Double-click seems to be doing something, typical Windows 10 experience, just nothing happens, like a shortcut to nowhere. This could be an issue isolated to me, but I cannot figure out why. The other Chroma app mentioned here would launch but hang/crash right away.

But before I can even get it running, curious, is this only for keyboards? Any and all keyboards? How about underglow? I've just got a Mamba Elite, Firefly Cloth should be coming tomorrow, and I plan to order a Huntsman Elite relatively soon - I think my plans are common around these parts. But just to add, I was wondering if it were possible through your app to utilize the entire suite for ambilight?

to also add, I'm intent upon incorporating my Hue bulbs, but I've already got that sorted out, mostly.

If you open the program, you should be able too see the icon in your notification area on your taskbar. It does not notify you, that it has started (maybe I should implement this at some point).

I only got the Razer Ornata Chroma, so I can not really test it, but the program should also support mouse and mousepad like the Razer Naga or the Razer Firefly and every keyborr without a problem.

Oh and make sure to have Razer Synapse open for the program to work.

And regarding the Hue bulbs, the user BeyondForest said, he was able to use the Hue lamps with the program so you should ask him for that.

You can right click the icon in the notification area on the taskbar and select "change tickrate". You can then manually modify the rate, at which the effect should be updated. A higher update rate means less cpu load.

Yeah, I tested some things. HDK won't work. But in theory the hue lightstrips might work, cuz' the lamps work.
And it's a bit complicated to make it work all together! Anyone who want this synchronized with hue lamps and don't know how, you can just ask me!

I'm not a programer, but is it possible to get this on the razer naga and razer firefly mousepad? Don't feel forced to do so, when it's tooooo complicated.

Again thanks for this ♥️


May I ask you? I have two Hue lights but when I start the ambilight program they just turn off. But the razer devices work fine.

You have to download the hue sync app for your system (eg. windows). The app is supported via the Croma Workshop homepage. You aren't allowed to sync your hue lamps with synapse. But: If you have installed the hue sync app, then it must shown up in synapse (Chroma apps, where you have the ambilight app too). Here is the correct order important. First the ambilight app. Second the hue snyc app. Both activated. The hue lamps communicate with the hue sync app only, while your razer gear communicate with synapse. In theory you don't even have the hue app activated in Synapse, because the ambilight is a hue feature by itself. But it causes some troubles, when i deactivated it.

Hope you understand what i'm meaning here. My english is not the best x.x ❤

Not sure what happened but it's working fine now haha, cheers!
Please i would be so glad if you add HDK into it💓 I have one sticked behind my monitor and I'd like to have it for movies or games.
Please try adding it even you don't have it, and thanks you for this.

In theory, you're right. If you take it exactly the term Ambilight is not suitable for my program. However, the effect is what I wanted it to be. If you like I could try to implement a real Ambilight mode. ^^

HELL YEAH !! I would like it ! If you can implement that, it will be the perfect ambilight app ! :P
Great work !

thank you very much for this! keep up the good work. IF you can implement the ambilight to HDK you will be the reason to buy it...not synapse chroma craps..YOU

edit: also razer goliathus is not working with the app

I've looked into it further, but I'm sorry to disappoint you. Currently there is no way for me to control the HDK with the Colore Chroma SDK wrapper in C#. So there is no way for me to control the HDK with code.

The same seems to apply to the Razer Goliathus, for which there seems to be no implementation in the SDK.

no implementation for goliathus? seems that way cause all razer chroma games dont use goliathus in their profile...anyway huge thanks for this
Wonderful program you've made, Its exactly what I've been looking for. However, my razer firefly seems to freeze after some time running the program, and won't reset unless and I unplug the device. The keyboard works fine, it is only the mousemat that seems to freeze.
Awesome! It worked with my Mamba Elite, Huntsman Elite and Firefly Cloth. Thx for your great work!

Please update to version 1.6.5 and try again. If the error consists, please upload the log file located in C:\\Users\\yourusername\\AppData\\Roaming\\RazerAmbilight\\Logs
I can't seem to get this to work. I have Synapse open and Chroma apps ticked as well as ambilight and nothing. Is there something I'm missing?

Please try to reinstall Synapse once, this might solve the problem.

reinstalled both synapse and ambilight and now I can't even get ambilight to open anymore.
Forget my last post. After several installs and uninstalls, checking everything, trying everything, I finally got it to work.(at least 4 times) I feel this is more of a Synapse problem than anything else. Keep up the good work man!
I thank you all for using my software. I've been sitting down lately to fix one of the mainproblems with the software, the rather high CPU load.

Now I am proud to present version 2.0 to you. I've completely reworked the code and now I'm counting on getting the screen shots directly from the memory of the GPU. So the software now consumes only about 3-5% CPU load!

Actually the program should have asked you to update. If not, you can download version 2 here

But be careful, due to the code revision bugs may have crept in very well, which still have to be fixed over time. So far it runs without any problems for me.
Hi!
I just downloaded the newest version (2.0.2) and when I try to launch the program it only shows the icon shortly in the toolbar and then disappears again. Is this something you know how to fix?
