Enjoy Synchronized RGB Lighting when Using Peripherals Made by Different Manufacturers, and Add RGB Lighting Support to Many Games that Lack It, with This Open-Source Application

Sponsored Links:

Gamers tend to be quite picky when it comes to their peripherals, which is why they often use mice and keyboards from different manufacturers. When these devices also offer RGB lighting, however, you’re going to have a hard time getting them to work together.

Aurora is an open-source project that aims to offer a solution to this issue. It integrates RGB lighting support for a wide range of devices and allows them to be synchronized regardless of brand, while also adding third-party RGB lighting support to many games that lack it.

Unified RBG lighting for various peripheral brands

If, for instance, you have a Logitech mouse and a Razer keyboard, games usually have different RGB lighting profiles for each device, so the visual effects will look out of sync. Aurora gets around this issue by creating unified profiles which allow multiple types of peripherals to be used together.

It is important to note that this application isn’t just for gamers. You can create a personalized profile for your desktop that displays resource usage, shortcuts and various other effects using your device’s RGB lighting.

Add RGB lighting support to numerous games

Most games offer little or no support for RGB lighting, especially older ones. There is often little interest from developers to update games that have already been released, so you need to rely on third-party software.

Aurora already supports a number of popular games, and the list is growing with each update. If you want to check if your favorite games or peripherals are supported.

Comprehensive customization options

RGB lighting effects are created using multiple layers, and you can add or remove them, as well as change their order. Multiple parameters can be customized, so you should be able to create the perfect lighting profiles if you put a bit of work into them.

In short, Aurora is an invaluable application for users who want to enjoy synchronized RGB lighting from their peripherals regardless of brand. What’s more, it adds lighting support for a number of older games, and it comes with extensive customization options.
