  • Subject: Crysis 2 Logitech LCD Applet is here!

    Since Crytek did not feel like spending a day or two on developing an applet for Logitech keyboards with LCD, I did it myself.

    I think there are quite a few people who have been waiting for something like this, so here it is.
    Crysis 2 LCD

    Here's a screenshot of what it looks like:

    It works for all Logitech keyboards with a LCD. ( G15, G15 Refresh, G510, G19 )

    It displays:
    - Energy
    - Health
    - Name of your current weapon
    - Ammo of your current weapon
    - Ammo of your primary weapon
    - Ammo of your secondary weapon
    - Grenades left
    - Ping

    How to install / use it:
    You don't have to install it, you just start the app and navigate to it on your LCD. If you want to exit, you just have to press the "backspace / cancel" button on the G19 ( the one for the LCD, not the normal one ) or the "fourth button" on the G15 / G510.

    Bug Report:
    If you find any bugs, please report them to me, so that I can fix them!
    Also if you enjoy the app, or if you have trouble with it, just tell me!
    I am looking forward to your responses!

    Thanks to:
    xTreme2005 for convincing me to write this program and being my official beta tester!

    Open your Task Manager and check if the app is running! You should be able to see it under "Processes".

    What keyboard are you using, what driver version do you have and which OS?

    It should look something like this, if you have a G19:

    It was running but I just updated my drivers to latest version I have G19 and Windows 7.

    Yes it looks like that now, but when I'm in game and select the app all I get is a black screen on my LCD.... Any ideas?

    Yes, that happend to me alot, when I was developing the app. It only happens on the G19 though. I wasn't sure if this only occurs on the emulator or also on the real keyboard. I will try to fix this, now that I know that it's not just the emulator!

    As a workaround for now try this:
    Start the app first and if it doesn't work exit. Do this until you get a non-black screen. Then start Crysis 2 and enjoy.

    I'll start working on a fix for this bug right away...

    Hey man I just tried launching the .exe rather than launching through steam. I now have my energy bar displaying on the screen. How do I get ammo etc to display?

    I only have the energy bar! But still it's progress? Do you think steam is an issue and do you know if you could get that working?
