setting a custom effect does work. I can even adress my hue devices seperatly. setting all devices just turns the hue lights off though.

So setting all devices and setting all on the Chroma link has that issue?
This is strange

ChromaLink.SetAllAsync and ChromaLink.ChromaLinkCustom both work fine. chroma.SetAllAsync only sets the keyboard.

ah, well i found the issue. chroma.SetAllAsync is missing a call to set all colors on the chroma link
@RudolfFrank_twitter 6.0.0-unstable151 is now available from MyGet which should fix the issue: https://www.myget.org/feed/coralestudios/package/nuget/Colore/6.0.0-unstable0151

Hi folks, does this work with the razer emulator? I don't own razer devices myself, but would be nice to incorporate features for them. I've created a blank test form and added the exact sample code from the 5.2 guide, but emulator does not change colour. Thanks

@JackMorgan9_twitter i haven't looked into exactly how the emulator functions, but assuming it emulates the SDK DLLs in some way, it should work

@JackMorgan9_twitter i tested it now with the keyboard and it seems to work. I checked the checkbox for "Keyboard", then launched the window with "Show", and set colors via Colore, it updated the emulator. What steps are you taking when testing the emulator?

Installed Colore with nuget, installed emulator, Created blank winforms, added button, on the buttons click event, put the sample code in to change all colours to red. Also have keyboard ticked and pressed show.

@Sharparam On thinking about it, maybe it's because I don't have any razer devices. I do have the "RzChromaSDK64.dll" located in "Windows\System32" and "C:\Program Files\Razer Chroma SDK\bin"

the emulator should work without any devices as long as you have synapse installed (which installs the chroma sdk)

How strange. I'll re-install everything and create a new winforms. Thanks for the help

@JackMorgan9_twitter focus on Colore is mostly on the 6.0 version now. 5.2 should work with the emulator, but just to rule out that as an issue, can you try with 6.0.0 from here? https://www.myget.org/feed/coralestudios/package/nuget/Colore

@Sharparam Will do, i'll let you know
Adam Hellberg

Apr 29 2018 13:57
(note that the API changes quite a bit as everything is now async and the process of obtaining an instance of Chroma has changed)

So if Synapse installs the SDK, I wont need to grab the .dll files on my own
Adam Hellberg
@Sharparam
Apr 29 2018 13:58
that's right
the SDK doesn't need a separate install anymore
so you should just need synapse, the emulator, and colore from the above link

Ok, cheers. I'll report back soon

@Sharparam Unistalled everything Razer related. Reinstalled Synapse, then emulator, started a fresh winforms, added 6.0 getting started lines to change to all red. When running get this error - "ColoreException: Failed to dynamically load Chroma SDK library (Error 126)"
Adam Hellberg
@Sharparam
Apr 29 2018 14:49
that's odd
you could try a restart in case it's some problem with PATH not updating (ensuring everything gets an updated PATH variable)
Jack Morgan
@JackMorgan9_twitter
Apr 29 2018 15:23
Did a restart, still no luck. Checking PATH variables now

Well, im stumped. Here is the full exception detail https://pastebin.com/UshhppWE
Adam Hellberg
@Sharparam
Apr 29 2018 16:51
The error "126" means "module not found"
But that shouldn't happen if you installed synapse
Is it synapse version 2 or 3?
Jack Morgan
@JackMorgan9_twitter
Apr 29 2018 16:53
version 2.21
Although this could have something to do with it "The latest SDK Core Files will be automatically downloaded and installed when a Razer Chroma peripheral has been detected on Razer Synapse"
and I have no peripherals, says I can download them as a standalone but I don't see it.
Adam Hellberg
@Sharparam
Apr 29 2018 18:58
that could have something to do with it yeah
they seem to have removed the manual sdk download

Guess I'll drop a post in their forum, see if they can offer one
