    I am about to submit my first 3 patches to preware.

    There was a request to take some of the pressure off of sconix with fixed keyboard brightness patches.

    I am submitting patches for the following fixed brightness:

    25%, 50%, & 100% - NOW IN PREWARE - enjoy!

    1. Fixed Keyboard Brightness 25

    2. Fixed Keyboard Brightness 50

    3. Fixed Keyboard Brightness 100

    I prefer a minimum brightness, but realize some users would prefer a medium brightness.

    In addition, Speebs in the PC Forums has offered to submit the following variations to the Inverted Keyboard Brightness patch if there is interest in this thread. Here is what he is offering but we need your feedback!:

    We are going some variations to Preware, but we want to get some input on what brightness settings people would like to have before I did that.

    Let us know what variations of the patch you'd like to see go up in Preware (whether they are fixed, inverted, or "directly proportional" versions). For example:

    * Inverted: Keyboard 40-0, Screen 20-50
    * Direct: Keyboard 10-75, Screen 0-100


    The one I am using, and will submit if there is interest, does the following:

    Screen Brightness < 30%: Keyboard fixed at 20% (dark conditions- I don't need the keyboard to be bright)
    Screen Brightness > 30% and < 50%: Keyboard inverted brightness from 50% to 20%
    Screen Brightness > 50%: Keyboard brightness 0% (bright conditions- I can see the keys and don't need them backlit)

    This was designed to eke out as much battery life as possible. It should be noted that:

    a) my screen is almost exclusively at 0% brightness
    b) I chose a minimum keyboard level of 20% because I found it most usable on my particular hardware
    c) I'm sure the battery savings is negligible at best


    Like I said, if there is interest, I'll submit the patch. If I had time to learn how to write an app, I would make an interface to control these variables, and then these patches would be irrelevant. "

    If these sound like something you want, let Speebs know in this thread.

    Thanks again everyone for the support and input!

    I use the 100% fixed keyboard brightness. I don't believe that's in preware? Idk

    That is correct. It was never submitted. As I said, these are my first patches. If I have they go through, I have no problem adding the 100%.

    I will update the post when/if the patches make it into preware.

    This is very cool of you to do. After I read the description of this patch, and the other more medium brightness addition, I just knew I had to click the link to learn more.

    I look forward to its release in preware.

    I'm not yet sure if I'm going to submit my overly complicated inverted brightness patch, but should we change the title of this thread to simply "Keyboard Brightness Patches"?

    I think "Alternative Keyboard Brightness Patches" would be a good way to go.

    personally, I like the inverted brightness patch.

    Speebs,

    1. Why don't you listed your options here for the inverted patches and see the response.

    2. As for the title, if I can change it without messing up links I will.

    ^^^ +1

    or simply " Alternative brightness patches" since it isn't just the screen or keyboard alone.

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone.

    Sadly, I don't see a way to edit the title and first post of this thread. I did add a tag inverted brightness though. If someone knows how to change the thread title, I am all ears.

    Number 1.

    also could be known as "Alternative Hardware Brightness Patches"

    I think "hardware" should be clear enough, also the description of the patch I am sure will be included for all to understand clearly.

    Don't you think keeping the word keyboard in there will make it easier to find when searching preCentral?

    +1 for keyboard. That's the point of this...

    Well there you have it

    In that case, go with "Alternative Keyboard Brightness Patch" as originally posted


    ( BTW, is this inverted with the screen brightness, or just the keyboard brightness alone? )
