Programmable RGB keyboards and Mame
02/07/17 10:24 PM

So I'm planning shortly to purchase an RGB programmable keyboard such as the Corsair K95 or Logitech G910 Spectrum.
I'm wondering if anyone has had some experience with these keyboards in Mame.

Ideally each game would boot up with the keys for play lit in one color while perhaps general setting Mame keys would be lit in another. Maybe flashing #1, #2 keys as coins are added.

What I'm likely going to run into is just one setting for the mame executable. Maybe the macro keys can be set for different keyboard layouts. From what I have read, the logitech software sounds the most flexible.

The Logitech software has options for in game scenarios such as flashing keys when health or ammo are running low. This might suggest that the software is smart enough to know when mame is running one title vs another.

Perhaps there is a frontend I have not heard of that can adjust settings on the keyboard before the game launches.

Perhaps someone here has one of these keyboards and could share layout files for Mame.
