    Ok, the PID was 512. Same device VID. I've attached my theme and the usb sniffer information that was sent when it turned the lights on and off via the drop down (for some reason Fn-F11 wasn't working)

    Awesome, can you try running the tiny program attached to the post? Since the PID of the M11x and the M15x is the same, I need to inspect the Model of the pc to determine which model it is.

    This small program does exactly this and I want to test if its checking the model correctly.

    Oops, sorry the PID is actually 514.

    Bus 005 Device 002: ID 187c:0514

    I'll still run this program when I get into work.

    Hey,

    Soleblaze just verified that the latest(not yet released) version works for the M11x. My questions are:

    1) is there anything anyone would like to see in the next version (which supports M11x)?

    2) How much people would be interested in "active" profiles. Those would be profiles, which extend the alienFX functionality by actively changing the colors. This means, that the active profiles only work when the application is running, but also means that there are no limits to what one can de. One example would be "police car lights" on the speakers, which would basiacally alternative red/blue in a quite fast manner.

    Any feedback is welcome

    Two things that I'd like to see is a way to turn off the lights. Is this just done by creating a profile and setting everything to black or is there another way that the alienware program does this? Also it would be nice to be able to turn on/off the light dimming.

    It is basically equivalent to setting the light to black. Ill add another option though which dims the light. You cal also do go into the Menu and press Help->Reset

    Can you elaborate? I dont quite understand
