Default Any ETA on RGB Lua scripting?

As the title suggests, I'm curious as to when the lua script programming is arriving.

I've checked out some of the unofficial drivers, but I didn't get it working and don't have the time to try to fix it.

If not some general ETA, I would like some confirmation that LUA scripting is still in the works, as it's already been many months since that possibility was mentioned.

Cheers

Hopefuly for the next update after the current one in beta right now. With the next firmware we'll have a new USB protocol which is supposed to fix the current issues. Once those are fixed and out of the way I figure they'll start focusing on adding more functionality (LUA), that's just my personal opinion though.

Probably after this next couple firmware updates that actually fix the current functionality issues (16.8m colors, lights freezing, etc...). Adding LUA scripting in the current state would only bring more issues as of this time. It might be until the end of the year before LUA scripting becomes a possibility for implementation.

I didn't realise 16.8m was a fixable issue, and yes, I noticed that the drivers sonetime crashed, making me reconnect the keyboard every now and then.

16.8m colors is indeed a fixable issue, as the keyboard itself is capable of showing 16.8m colors, but the USB stack size and how CUE interacts with the firmware and the computer prevents it from showing 16.8m colors as of now. It'll probably require both a firmware and a software update to get it working.

Yes with the new update users will need a new firmware and software.

KarmaQueen,
I have a K95 RGB keyboard that I think I might be having driver problems with, you tell me if this sounds similar to the problem you're having.

Sometimes when I wake my PC up from a night of sleep mode, the software acts like it is locked up (can't open it) and my G-keys do not work. The only fix that I've found so far is restarting my computer, but that's really inconvenient for me in my line of work. I'm curious if your problem is similar and if you have a way of waking your keyboard up without restarting your computer?

I've tried un-plugging the kb, resetting the keyboard bios (with the switch on the back), and restarting the CUE software.

Please let me know if you've got a fix for this!

Lua scripting at the moment is on the backburner because of resources dedicated to all the important tasks. There is something exciting we have planned for the next big CUE Enhancement that we'll be able to show off very shortly, however.

Our next firmware and software update should resolve this. I suspect CUE shows your keyboard as malfunction?

James,
The CUE doesn't show anything when I have my issue, it's usually locked up entirely when I have that problem.

Try the newest update now and see if it still occurs.

It's taken them over 8 months to get 16.8 million colors (sort of) but with flickering due to keyboard hardware restraints. I'll go for another 18 months for some sort of LUA scripting as this is another important thing some competitors already have.

I have watched some LUA programming tutorials, but how exactly will LUA be useful? And will it have any impact or benefit to the typical keyboard user or gamer?

Say you want your keyboard to flash red when the ability cools down. how can you do that? you could pre set the time in the profile but if you add CDR then the cool down changed time and your pre set time will be wrong. So with LUA you can check for that information.

Well, that's assuming CUE will have the ability to read the memory of other programs in the future. Then there's the issue of some other programs not liking outside programs reading their memory.
