NathTheGreat Posted December 29, 2021 Share Posted December 29, 2021 Ok, so a little click bate title but hear me out. The K100 is good so far, but is entirely let down by the software. So i've just brought a new K100 OPX keyboard, and i'm really disappointed in the iCUE software. It's lacking so many things. A few things around macros and application integration. Like Discord. Really? And things like if i want lighting options for when a button is pressed. Something simple like if i click the mute button next to the volume roller, it should turn red, just like when you click the 'lock' button for the game mode. And if i want to program a macro and have it do something, i should be able to get a lighting schema to make that button a different colour while it's running, or until i disable it. I.e, lets say it's a toggle macro, and it runs until i click the G key again, i should be able to set the lighting to highlight that button while running (so i know it's running) This would be easy to do if you have your lighting layers like layers in photoshop, as in you can disable or hide a layer (But it stays there) So you would have the layer for the G key as RED, but not enabled. then when you click the G key you're able to 'enable' that layer and it makes it active and the G key turns red. then when you click the G key again it can disable that layer so it goes to whatever the next available layer is. It's simple. You already have layers set up in the software. Or if i've got a key mapped to mute the mic in discord i want to active a lighting layer that makes the num pad turn red, so i can see that's it's muted. then go back to the normal lighting when enable it again. And i know there is an option to select a lighting layer when you run a macro, but that only flashes the layer for a second. It does not keep it active. And another thing, there is no option to turn off the lights on the keyboard after x amount of time inactive. I.e if i leave the computer on all night, the keyboard is light up all night. it does not sleep. There just seams like there is a lot of things that could be implemented a log better. Or maybe i'm missing something. But i really did expect better. If there is a way to do this, please let me know. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
