Hello world :-)

The MSI Center (10.0.59) application really sux!
  • * I would like to control my MSI GK50 Low Profile keyboard, change LED colors, just the static color RGB value.
  • * Keyboard configuration application only allows Macro recording and no LED control.
  • * Mystic Light (3.0.0.23) application does not download, it only starts Waiting for Download and noting happens, no install possible.
  • * The same for System Diagnosis (1.0.0.21) also does not download, no install possible.
  • * Most buttons and functions does not work / are unresponsive / nothing happens after click.
  • * Starting the download locks all of the program. Aborting download does not help and the application remains unresponsive until exit / restart.
  • * I have bought the keyboard for programming on FreeBSD Unix (Open-Source) because its amazingly fast for typing. But there is no Open-Source application for keyboard control and customization. I had to launch Windoze (yuck) to obtain the MSI Control application that is really disappointing.

  • My questions:
  • 1. Is there any kind of Technical Documentation for MSI GK50 keyboard so I could write my own Open-Source application for this keyboard customization?
  • 2. The keyboard clearly lacks "Menu" (right click mouse) key!! Is there a way to add it for instance as Dragon + Right Win key?

Any hints welcome :-)

hello, you could control the LED without MSI Center.
as for menu key, are you referring to shift + F10?
