Long road ahead... -)
How's the programmer life?
Quite interesting life.
Btw, I have engineering education. After graduation (one of the best technical institute in the country) I should work in space industry, but USSR decided to fall apart and any industry dived deep into nowhere... Luckily programming was part of training (Fortran, PL/1, Assembler - all on mainframes; C and Pascal we studied ourselves when PC started to replace mainframes), and was able to find programmer job.
Wow, interesting. I was recently doing Python for a networking project, then Assembly for another project (parking control system). I started appreciating how C++ just made everything easier coming from Assembly. When you're working with Python, C++ feels so low-level; but when you're working with Assembly, C++ is psht
Well, assembly and PL/1 on mainframes were super cool. PL/1 even permitted to use unfinished keywords (e.g. 'contin' instead of 'continue'). But for last 4 years my brain belongs to C#.
When I browse and associate profile it turns red. Does it have to be in a specific location or avoid some characters to work?
edit* so I read thread and someone else had the same problem. I guess it's just the icc profile im using isn't compatible
Hey there, you'll find the workaround in post #48.
Just wondering something I know it has a built in blue profile would it be possible to tweak it so it acts as a blue filter? not sure if it works that way.
What do you mean exactly? If you want a blue profile that completely displays blue without any other shades whatsoever, then Windows blocks that from happening. Windows only allows setting a color profile with a maximum of half the absolute maximum values of the R, G, B values. The range is from 0 --> 65535 so you cannot have your maximum mapping below 32768 for Red and Green.
Is this true?
I have a lot of trouble getting color sustainer to auto load at windows start. I've had it working before, on Nvidia. I've had it working at startup on a single 290x as well, but since I went to an MSI 295x2 and a fresh windows 8.1 install it doesn't seem to let color sustainer create a startup entry or whatever it normally does. Any advice? Using AMD 14.4 WHQL
BTW I really like your program and I recommend it regularly. Thanks very much for the app.
8.1 is sometimes picky in what it allows to run at startup, so make sure program runs as administrator. You can also try creating an entry for it in task scheduler to run at startup with elevated privileges.
This application helped me A LOT!! There is no alternative to this application anywhere! 10/10 will donate! Great work well done
I tried the workaround method as Color Sustainer gave me red button when I tried to load couple profiles. When I tried to do the workaround in CMD with dispwin [directory of my profile], it gave me an error message says Can't open file 'directory'. Please help!
We need more details. Screenshots would be great. Try to change the directory of the profile as it may be somewhere dispwin does not have permissions to access, or you're entering the directory incorrectly.
Here's the screen shot. Maybe I did something wrong there? I also changed the directory to somewhere else but same thing.
Oops it needs me to up my post count to 3 before I can link my uploaded screen shot. Give me 1 sec!
There you go!
You need to specify the file directory of the ICC profile, not the folder directory. Go for D:\Test\x.icm (where x is the name of the ICC profile) and you should be good to go!
To all: Added a link in OP to a post I wrote explaining some aspects of color management.
Does it has to be a .icm file? The one that I got is from TFT Central - Asus PB278Q http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/icc_profiles/asus_pb278q.icc
When I tried to run the dispwin command with that profile, it says the file is not a valid ICC profile or Argyll .cal file.
