Games are not supported yet, but they will be supported in the next release of BlinkStick Client application in early January.

This is fantastic, thanks for the quick reply.


#4

No problem. Happy New Year!!! :smiley:

It would be interesting how you gonna solve this. DirectX?


#6

Yes, DirectX. I have found some code samples which require injecting code.


#7

Is there any update on this? Would the latest 1.0 beta enable video games ambilight?


#8

@zguegxl The new version of client now supports full screen DirectX games. You can check it out here:

I’m using the newest BlinkStick Client 2.0 release, but i Ambilight does not work for me in any game.
On Desktop everything works fine, but as soon as i switch to the full screen game the color freezes.

What’s the screen resolution you are working with?


#11

My resolution is 2560 x 1080.
Do you think this is the problem?

Yep think so. I´ve tested up to 1920 and it works, but all users talking about problems have some “higher” resolutions.
If you like you could test 1920 (width) or below and give us a feedback.

Yes you are right. When i lower my resolution to 1920 x 1080, everything seems to work fine.
But unfortunately that is no option for me because i love my ultrawide monitor.
Isn’t is possible to get this working with higher resolutions?

Thank you for trying. It is of course no option. I fear it is the DX library. I will try to find the time to look into it generally. And I hope @arvydas will also :smile:
