LCDSirReal 2.8.4 released

As a side effect of researching how to access the G13/G15 (Z10/G510) hardware on Linux and OS/X, I’ve implemented direct hardware access to those devices in LCDSirReal 2.8.4. If the Logitech software isn’t installed or running (or if it crashes), LCDSirReal will access the LCD directly. In addition, the G-keys will be translated into different special key codes not in common use, so you may be able to map them into games (unlikely unless it’s a quite clever game designer) or to macros using software like AutoHotKey. Yes, now you no longer need to run the 100MB+ Logitech software just to run LCDSirReal. Woot!

LCDSirReal 2.8.3

LCDSirReal, or SirReal’s multipurpose G15 plugin, is a plugin for the Logitech G13/G15 gaming keyboards. It will also work on the G19, in black and white. It provides more features than all of the Logitech bundled plugins together, while using much less CPU and memory. Written entirely in C++, it’s very stable and efficient. Among the more notable features are support for applications (WinAMP, iTunes, SpeedFan, FRAPS, TeamSpeak…) and system real time monitoring of networking, CPU and memory usage and more. And of course it shows the basic stuff as time, date and waiting mail as well.

Changes in 2.8.3:

  • Adds support for the GPU-Z application
  • You can now prevent the test window from appearing even if the keyboard is unresponsive, see lcdsirreal.txt for more info
