MSI Laptop SteelSeries Light Controller

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello All!

 

I made (Or rather assembled) a little tray app that will allow the users of MSI laptops with multi-color backlighting to control the lights in OS X.

 

When you run it, you'll see a small lightbulb icon appear in the menu bar. Click it to see the options.

It has a couple of bugs (sometimes you have to click apply twice) but otherwise it works well. It will remember your settings, and if you set it to run on login, it will enable the lights on startup, just like in windows.

 

It's just a gui wrapper for "msikbledenabler" by PaNaVTEC. The executable is included as a resource, but feel free to download and compile your own if you don't trust it. just change the name to SSEnabler and replace the file in the project.

 

I used mikael konutgan's Menu and Popover guide from raywenderlich.com as boilerplate code, and modified it.

 

The Lightbulb icon was obtained from flaticons.com. 

 

Also, a big shoutout to everyone on stack exchange. I love you.

 

I'm not a pro OS X developer, so I probably won't be doing much more with this, but I do know that the code is a great big hack job. If anyone wants to fix it up, feel free.

Dear sir!

 

Your app it work perfect on Highsierra.

 

but

 

I have check source code.

i have some questions:

1) What dose "SSEnabler" mean for and where do you get that ?

2) Can you add custom color by R - G - B code or hexa code, 

3) Source code using swift 2, can you update it to swift 3 for build by xcode 9.

 

thanks

Dude, I just about crapped when the lights turned on under my keyboard. I was figuring that this would likely be the one thing I would really have trouble getting to work on my GT72s 6QF (4k beast.) You put a big smile on my face. Thank you so much!

      Hello everyone! Last week I received my Broadcom BCM94352Z (model DW1560) from Newegg, installed it into my Dell Inspiron 5558, and I can't get it to work in macOS 10.13.5. I thought that I might have received a knockoff, so I tried it in Linux Mint, and it recognized it as a BCM4352 and worked perfectly! I've tried almost everything I could find online and nothing is working (see below). Any help would be greatly appreciated!
       
      Methods I Tried:
      FakePCIID, FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi, BrcmPatchRAM2, BrcmFirmwareRepo
      I've also used AirportBrcmFixup and BrcmFirmwareData when injecting with Clover
      Laptop Specifications (Closest to MacBookAir 17,1, using SMBIOS for MacBook Pro 12,1)
      Intel Core i5-5250U
      Intel HD 6000 Graphics
      8GB RAM
      1 TB Hard Drive
      ALC3234 (apparently equivalent to ALC255 according to the net)
      Originally Intel Wireless, now BCM94352Z

      Ok so im looking at doing some upgrades to my input devices and have found some that i like.
      Keyboard: Corsair Gaming Strafe RGB Mechanical Keyboard Cherry Brown
      https://www.pccasegear.com/products/33308/corsair-gaming-strafe-rgb-mechanical-keyboard-cherry-brown
       
      Mouse: Corsair Glaive RGB Gaming Mouse - Black
      https://www.pccasegear.com/products/39190/corsair-glaive-rgb-gaming-mouse-black
       
      Does the corsair software work on mac yet?
      Does anyone use any other above with macOS and have any feedback for me?
      Any feedback at all would be appreciated.
