Application requirements

How to use

A proper installer is in the works. In the meantime, you may download a ZIP file with the binaries from the Releases page, and then extract its contents into any folder of your liking.

Once installed, just run the EliteChroma.exe program. You may then control the program from the icon in the system tray.
