    @ruNrr Hue lights are already supported via ChromaLink. They don't have a "special" SDK.
    However due to a bug in Synapse 3 you need to shut down Synapse 3 and the center for it to work otherwise it will "steal" the Chroma focus from GameDog.

    Razer is working on fixing that.

    I've tried to end the process for synapse 3 and razer central in task manager. I see it working on my mouse but my lights won't change at all.

    @ruNrr What GameDog Version are you using right now? Try using 3.6 if you haven't: https://gamedog.chromatin.eu/GameDog.3.6-signed.exe (Also please let me know if the setup works for you or if something fails)

    Do you use a custom GameDog profile?
    If you update from a previous Version of GameDog you might want to click on "Reset" at the bottom of the Assignments for your game.
    The default profile does have for:
    CS:GO - Shows alive red/green
    Dota2 - Current Hero color

    EDIT:
    I'm planning to update the default profile to include some more dynamic stuff...

    It started working, not sure exactly what got it working but it worked.

    I only saw it working for "effects", didn't change whether i was alive or dead, they just stay dimmed white.
    Go dimmed yellow if i press esc and bright white when i open console.

    Would be awesome to see bomb timer, ammo and health and maybe put each on different light bulb.

    But i'll be looking forward to see what dynamic stuff you'll cook up

    Thanks for quick and helpful responds

    You can give this a try. In the assignments doubleclick on "Bomb Countdown"...scroll down to "Chroma Link" and click on "Edit". Now select CL2 and click on Save. (I can't test right now but it should be possible to select different bulbs from CL2 to CL5). That way the Bomb Countdown should display on your Hue light. You can do the same for nearly everything else...for example doubleclick on "Primary Clip Ammo" and scroll down, click Edit and Select C3 for that and it should display on your second light and so on...

    The trick to put C2-5 does the trick. But i some how messed up the flash-smoke-molly effect.
    I tried to reset and reinstall GameDog but it seems as it has the previous settings saved somewhere.

    Where are the files stored so i can try to do a fresh clean install and try if that'll do the trick

    @ruNrr No worry. You didn't misconfigure anything. The reason that is happening is that effects are set to not overlay anything else. So if you set for example health to be shown on CL1 then the effects won't display there.
    However you can rearrange. The Assignments are applied from top to bottom. The easiest way if you don't care about effects also overlaying on your keyboard is by going to the Assignments and drag and drop the "Effect: *" items below the items you set for CL. The other (more advanced) way is clicking on "New" and creating a new Assignment just for Chroma Link and move that above the effects.

    EDIT: Also make sure to remove CL1-CL5 from the default Assignment which is "Alive" (just click alive, click on Edit for Chroma Link and remove all checks)

    Hey i'm not sure if this was asked already. But is there a way to get gamebog to work with custom razer synaps color profiles. It doesn't have to work ingame, but it overwrites gamedogs light effect. Same happens with "dynamic" effect(wave/fire....).

    Synapse 3 sadly steals the Chroma focus all the time...especially when having a custom color as it updates every few milliseconds. Razer is working on a fix for that. For now the best thing is turning of Synapse 3 while gaming :/

    It's happening with synaps 2 as well. Using a blade. It's not supported in synaps 3. But thanks for the answer

    Strange. That should work. I will give this a try over the next days.

    Quick workaround. Bind a new static profile to the csgo.exe

    That works perfectly !
    Would be cool if the bomb countdown would still work if i'm dead and it wouldn't have to go in order, as in they would all blink in the end, but thats not a big deal.

    Thank you !
