Any plans to support custom brightness settings for ALT & CTRL Configurator?
more_vert
Absolutely love the intuitive user interface for controlling custom LED color layouts for the the ALT keyboard but would love to be able to set a default brightness value on firmware boot. I dock my laptop and each time the power cycles to the keyboard it forgets my selected brightness and reverts to the standard which is generally far brighter than I would like.

Also if your motherboard has USB ports with selective power options in BIOS . Kind of like the different colored usb ports on ASUS motherboards for like charging phones or fast charging (sometimes they are like red or orange). Well if you plug your ALT or CNTRL into one it will make the LEDS brighter than you've ever seen them. (This has been confirmed safe, Badseedtech on YouTube even did a little segment on it)

you can do this with the QMK configurator, I reccomend learning a smidge of QMK instead of dealing with the Drop configurator

The only way that I have found to do this thus far is to fork the GitHub qmk/qmk_firmware repo and then write your own code to handle all of the LED colors and brightness. Totally something that I am personally capable of with my coding background but I have to fathom that Drop is definitely assuming that most of their customers are probably not as comfortable with writing and compiling their own firmware. Do you have any direction you can provide to setting custom default brightness using the QMK Configurator web app because I have yet to find a way to do that there? Worth noting I did just recently submit an accepted pull request to the qmk/qmk_configurator repo to fix a keymap.c discrepancy that they had with the massdrop/alt keyboard where the "Z" and "Y" keys were swapped so I have done a rather reasonable amount of research in to the project.
