Hardware Lighting Not workin


Recommended Posts

I am having an issue that my keyboard will not save hardware lighting when saving a downloaded profile from the website to the keyboard.  If i open Icue it works as it should until the computer is unplugged.  I have tried saving the current profile to the keyboard and it shows as being saved however it just doesnt work unless i open icue.  I have dug around here and tried to reset the keyboard doing a completely clean install of icue.  What are the steps to getting one of the downloaded profiles to work without needing to open icue.

You cannot save a downloaded or shared profile to the keyboard memory.  Shared profiles are all software profiles and only operate as such, when CUE is running.  For a profile to be active without CUE running, you must create it in the Hardware Lighting section, then save it to the KB save slots.  Those profiles cannot be shared and are different in multiple ways from a software profile.

Is there a way to copy the lighting effects to the hardware lighting section?

Not a direct copy and paste.  You have to replicate each effect for the desired device.  Hardware Profiles must be run from the device's memory and MCU, so the capabilities will be less.  Some software effects are not possible in hardware mode because of this limitation.  Most devices will be limited to a single preset effect or some combination of static colors.
