Submit a new link. I guess you have not installed everything correctly yet. Turned out it’s one of the few fully featured amBX titles, and also the best in my opinion. I do like that the ambi-stuff will give future games an interface to hack your own effects on though. You can get the lights to work in most games, all it does it split the screen into sections, then make the lights light the average color of each section, updating every second or so.

It’s still a neat effect, but nothing beats the scripted lights of an amBX supported game, which are few. The unit is supposed to help immerse you in your video games by adding ambient lighting, vibration, and wind.
