So what does the F10 mode actually cycle between? The default state is all lighting off. The first press illuminates the main keyboard, leaving the Function keys dark.
The second press lights up all the keys at 60% brightness (adjustable with F11/F12). The third mode is a breathing mode, which is nice if the keyboard is static but a little distracting, in our opinion, for regular use.
The fourth mode is the coolest. It has the whole keyboard darkened and the keys light up when you press them. The fifth mode is impossible to photograph and about as useful. The whole keyboard is black except the F-Keys light up one at a time from left to right and back, akin to either the front of KITT or a Cyclon depending upon which 80s TV show you watched.
Finally we have two custom modes. Out of the box this lights up the WASD keys on mode 1 and the cursors on mode 2. But with the record mode activated you can manually choose which keys are lit up. Obviously we use it to just light up OC3D, but you can do anything you wish, from checkerboard alternate keys, to just the ones for your particular game.
