I'm still having problems with the Darkroom mode....when I try to enable it, it immediately quits and returns to whatever the current F.lux setting is. I'm hoping there will be a Darkroom update soon.....
The proper way for drivers to work is to avoid remembering settings from an app after it is uninstalled, but some did this several years ago anyway. So as we've documented, the only two fixes are to update the buggy, old drivers (which helps in a lot of ways) or keep f.lux installed with some lesser settings until the driver memorizes these instead.
Once we are uninstalled, it really isn't our code running anymore.
and yes I did uninstall the driver and reinstalled. somewhere in the system f.lux has done some changes that persist after it's uninstallation. I've tried resetting the color management profile, tried using a different new user, no effect.
@eenoramic is it possible you were using our soft-dimming features before disabling? These are accessed via Alt+PgDn or Alt+PgUp, and we don't make them as prominent right now because they mostly appeal to desktop users and people who are sensitive to flicker on laptops.
@Alex5525 we do maintain three presets in this version - one for when the sun's up, another for the early evening, and another for right before bed. You can make the second two the same, just move the slider as you like.
@justsomebody for #2 yes we notice when timezones change and adjust things then, but this doesn't account for north-south travel.
We have done some tests with looking for changes to WiFi networks and the like, but it is a pretty noisy signal and so it requires us to chat with a server and becomes a privacy issue, so we have not shipped it, because we don't want to track anyone's location in detail.
@bakjoul We released 4.126 to beta track today - it should be more careful to avoid reading old state immediately after startup. If you can flip the backoff preference back on we'd love to know how it works.
