Could Corsair integrate Asus lighting directly into CUE 4 without the need for a plugin?

I know quite a lot of people who don't want to run the Asus Armory Crate software and the standalone AURA is now discontinued. Is it at all possible Corsair could integrate the required AURA components directly into CUE 4 without the need for running either Armory Crate (or the discontinued AURA) and a plugin?

Just download Lighting Control file, extract it, and install AuraServicesetup and AacMBsetup manually.  And it should allow iCue4 to work with the Motherboard.  AacTerminalHal might also be needed but I am pretty sure the first two is all you need.

@Astral85 How did you get on with this? Did it work?

The AuraServicesetup appears to install everything it normally would except the Aura app itself. An even more streamlined install would be better. I can confirm the Asus CUE plugin works with AuraServicesetup and AacMBsetup manually.

 

The reason I've uninstalled again is because there currently seems to be a bug with CUE 4.15 onwards and the plugin in that there is a very large lag in devices going from software mode to HW mode when CUE is exited, i.e. system reboot. I don't know if the Aura installed with Armory Crate is having this issue or not. I'm about to report the bug in another thread now.

On my end, I just installed Armoury Crate without Aura Creator, configured my "Hardware lighting" correctly, and both my GPU and Motherboard appeared in iCue once I ticked the "Enable Plugins" in iCue. It seems that the Asus plugin is preinstalled in iCue now.

I only want the motherboard lighting control in CUE but I don't want to run another hardware ecosystem's software (Armory Crate) just to be able to do that. If Asus agreed perhaps CUE could have standalone control of Asus motherboard lighting.
