I have just downloaded 0.0.5.5 and it's crashing for me every time I try to run it, immediately.

I have a rebranded P170SM with an i7 4700MQ, Nvidia 770M, running Windows 8 Pro x64. I get the following in Event Viewer:

Any ideas? I have deleted the LEDKB registry key and no difference.

Thanks!

Is there any chance that we'll ever see a full range RGB color wheel or is that hardware limited?

Congrats on the mods by the way, great job!

it's a bit of hardware limitation and laziness on Clevo's part

It appears to be a hardware limit, the colours we have are the only colours were getting.

i finally got around to making an installer so the new version will include a setup for easier use

I'm looking forward to that! Ive a Clevo P170EM and even though I'm copying the files properly, whenever I try to open the led program it always seems to crash on me. I'm pretty sure I'm not doing anything wrong.

I tried the LightsFX after that too and it seems to be working fine.

new version is ready.

This one is in the form of a setup. Just run it and follow instructions. It will also install the LightFX library if you select the appropriate option.

I would like to hear some feedback concerning the new installer. Let me know if it worked right.

changelog:

0.0.5.6: 12/9/13

-bugfixes crash during startup on some systems

-better exception catching

-better SM series compatibility

-better tray temperature handling(for those who were experiencing hangs in temperature mode after running the app for some time)

-better powersavings behaviour

-added installer

-Also in this version you don't need to close ledkb in order for LightFX to work.

When ledkb is running, it detects whether LightFX is in use. If it is, it "pauses" ledkb until LightFX is finished (i.e. you exit the game) and then resumes.

Everthing's working perfectly. Only minor nuisance is that I have the taskbar on top and it always seems to be covering the options buttons. No big deal of course!

Great job with the effects!

One other little thing, on the Custom Cycle effect, the color wheel seems to be cropped for me and you can't select a couple of colors.

It's slightly cropped on the Custom effect too, but every color is clickable there.

what is your screen resolution and dpi?

it's a 17.3" monitor @ 1920x1080, dpi is at 100%.

I tried changing resolutions but didn't seem to do anything.

I can't reproduce this bug, does anyone else have it?

Can't wait to test it, looks awesome!

I tried using the controller built in the Clevo Control Center, but for some reason it wouldn't work.
