Default Rainbow Wave with megarainbow script

V.? Incoming. Will have 430 colors and individual group for every key. Lots of work to be done but I know what I have to do


So I spent the entire day redoing the profile to make it perfect.
The profile now has 18 groups that each go through 103 different colors that were chosen specifically to make it even. Then I wrote my own lighting effects manually so that all the gradient effects are perfect for each group. I also calculated the timings so it's pretty much perfect down to the microsecond.
It can't really get much smoother than this unless Corsair provides their own profile.

If you want to reverse the wave then flip the colors for each group.
If you want to speed it up then change the end time to1.
But Do not touch the colors! it took me hours to get them right and there's a lot of them.

Edit: I fixed some color overlapping, and added a few different versions. I didn't like how the wave started off straight then when diagonally across the keys so I made a straight version. The keys aren't straight to begin with but it's close enough. The "left" versions have the waving going from right to left. Also added a crazy version which actually doesn't look half bad.

This shows "megarainbowstraight" which is the one I use.

Here is the megarainbowscript I wrote, yes I had to type it all, yes I had to make 18 variations of it, and yes it took hours.


Here is the result.


Using 2 or more profiles at a time will affect each other as they all use the same groups and lighting effect.

Here's some fast versions for people who can't figure out how to change the end times.

I think I'm done messing with the rainbow profiles, at least until they release scripts. I can't think of much more to add. The only other option is figuring out the perfect timing for using the wave effect. I have a wave effect that uses the same 103 colors as these profiles if anyone wants to try to mess with that.

No problem man. I like sharing what I've learned so far so that hopefully other users can be making cooler profiles that I'm too lazy to make or didn't think of.
Also I went ahead and made this for you.

Using your Megarainbow-Left profile, it's perfect.

Thanks for your submission, makes my keyboard look way better than when I was using the other rainbow profile I had on. =]

I figure I should ask here though, is there a way to make it light up each key I hit white (fading in and out, not just blinking) with this profile?

Looks like the profile has been slightly broken with the newest software + firmware update.

The "ESC" through "Ctrl" keys just blink instead of smoothly changing colors. Same for "Mute" through "2" keys.
And by "through" I mean vertically from key to key.

Keep up the great work!

How do you make the lighting effect scroll endlessly? And also everytime i press a key it restarts itself.

If I can get the firmware installed, this will be the first profile I install. Ever since I plugged my keyboard in and saw that rainbow cascade, I knew I wanted it as a default profile. Unfortunately, soon after I installed the utility software, the rainbow disappeared and never returned. Now I'm stuck with the default red keys, and can't change it because of the firmware issue preventing the utility software from identifying the keyboard.

EDIT: Success... I was able to find the firmware and download it properly. And as promised, I have your megarainbow profile as my default setting. It'll be a while before I change it out, so I'll enjoy it for all the hard work put into it.

Is there a profile for the mega-rainbow to go to the center or outwards from the center? I'm currently not so confident on editing any of this, If there is that would be greatly appreciated.

Let me know if this works. Not megarainbow, but cool.
