[Rseding91] [1.1.41] Logitech RGB keyboard goes off when ALT TAB-ing back to Factorio

Post by Water Knight »

Hello there

Problem occurred on Factorio version 1.1.41 build 58972 win64, Logitech G815 RGB keyboard.

Lights work as intended when launching the game or playing it. Keyboard shows colourful lights as it should untill I ALT TAB out. Then lights take default colours. But when TAB-ing back to the game it doesn't switch to Factorio colours, but turn black/off.

When launching Factorio, default lights dissapear and orange lights slowly move over the keys as game is loading. When ALT TAB-ing out and back in during the load, keys only turn black for a brief moment, as game loads a bit more and lights light up as they should

But during the game when TAB-ing back they simply stay black until something happens that should change colour normally (research, taking damage, exiting game, loading game)

I think it may be because when ALT TAB-ing back, Factorio doesn't give output to the keyboard to change colours back. It looks like Factorio only gives signal to keyboard when changes are needed and not continuous pulse.

Same thing is true for Logitech G502 mouse I use, but not important, because when keyboard dims, key letters are not visible anymore on G815

I still encounter this issue on Factorio v. 1.1.69 with Logitech G-Hub v. 2022.8.306864 (released Aug 30, 2022) and a G512 keyboard. The lights are lit up in the Factorio color until I alt-tab, at which point they switch to the normal colors as expected when Factorio loses focus. Once Factorio is alt-tabbed back into focus, the keyboard lights shut off entirely. Once I quit the game and return to main menu, the colors come back and work normally in the main menu and once a game is loaded again.

I was able to reproduce this behavior in both full-screen and windowed modes. I can't seem to post my log file as an attachment to this post because the board attachment quota has been reached?

Ok, I have no idea what's gong wrong. I've ordered that keyboard so I can test with it once it arrives.
