I apologize for my insane enthusiasm here, but I have been sorely missing MagicTune ever since I upgraded from my 8-year old Samsung 2253BW to the AOC G2460PG. Thanks to getting used to MagicTune, I just HATE having to lean forward and reach for my buttons and then press them only to sometimes press the wrong buttons and whatnot. Sigh. I'm so tired of that. LOL With ScreenBright, I finally have all the control I want!!! WOO-HOO!

Finally!

Edit: Nevermind. I guess my monitor isn't 100% compatible. Even though ScreenBright can make all these changes, they're not permanent. What I mean is, anytime my monitor has to reconnect or turn off and come back on, it reverts back to the last configuration I set it to with the onboard controls. So, it does this at the following times:
  • Anytime I turn my monitor off and back on
  • Anytime I restart the computer
  • Anytime I shut down and turn the computer back on
  • Anytime I change the refresh rate or the resolution
  • Anytime the refresh rate or resolution is changed automatically
  • Anytime I launch a game in exclusive full screen mode
  • Anytime I Alt+Tab out and back into said game
  • Anytime I exit said game

I also have a strange ESD problem with my desk where sometimes the monitor will briefly lose signal for about half a second, such as if I pick up or set down a metal utensil like a fork or a spoon or something. When this happens, I lose my ScreenBright settings and I get back my previously-configured settings that I configured using the onboard controls.

I tried DisplayTuner, but I have the same problem.

I tried ClickMonitor DCC, but it claims my monitor isn't even compatible. So, I'm guessing it just doesn't have any way to write permanent changes to it (no EEPROM? I don't know).

I'm going to keep using it, but unfortunately I won't be able to use it in the way that I originally thought.

Thank you so much for finding this app and reporting it. You are amazing.

You're welcome, but I'm using ClickMonitorDDC now and it's much better.

Oh! Yeah, it still amazes me how much better it is than anything else I have tried so far!

Agreed! I went looking for a program to do this years ago after Samsung Magictune stopped working, ended up finding and settling on the one previously mentioned, and it still worked well into w10 as well which was nice. So glad I came and found this thread again to see someone has renewed interest in monitor control! Loving the scheduled times you can set, this is really a great program.

Revisiting this thread because I needed to reinstall ClickMonitor again but I forgot the name. Awesome to see even more features have been added since I last installed it! Like being able to set your brightness based on time and hovering over the icons and using the scroll wheel. Nice to see others happy with it as well. Great work, Martin!
