Originally reported by: Sparx ­ (Bitbucket: Sparx10, GitHub: Sparx10)


I usually have a game on one monitor that I would like to keep in regular color, but then on the other monitor I have some horribly bright white applications, like a web browser, file explorer, or Skype.

Having the ability to invert only one monitor would be really nice. Basically just setting different inversion matrices for each monitor.

Original comment by Melvyn Laïly (Bitbucket: yaurthek, GitHub: Unknown):


Unfortunately that's not possible with the Windows Magnifier API NegativeScreen 2.* uses.
It was possible with NegativeScreen 1 though (but NegativeScreen 1 was a bit more buggy and slow)...

But you are not the first one to ask for something like this.
As I said before, I might release a future version with a mixed mode, using the fast API when in full-screen mode, and using the old API to allow enabling different matrices on different monitors...

it's quite a lot of work though, and I haven't been able to work much on this project lately. Sorry...

That's alright. I was hoping it would be a rather quick implementation to tide me over while I work on a fork of this shortly in the future, but I suppose now I'll just have more motivation to get my forked version done more quickly.

I would also find this feature very useful. I often have my primary monitor running an already dark themed editor, and would like to select all other monitors to toggle the color on, but leave the primary monitor alone from toggling.

I also have a monitor that's recently decided to default to showing the "negative" color of what its being driven with from the video card. NegativeScreen actually fixes the issue by flipping the colors back to their normal values. Thanks for providing a workaround fix for my monitor! Having the ability to toggle the colors in the opposite mode of the other monitors would also be a nice enhancement.

Thanks for your feedback everyone. Still no progress on this feature request, but I'd like to mention I released an unofficial version a (long) while ago that got lost in the comments of my website.

It's based on the old v1, and handles multiple monitors with the ability to choose to enable monitors separately.

It's a bit crude, but probably still usable: http://arcanesanctum.net/other/NegativeScreen-custom-multi-monitor.exe
