UPDATE: I stumbled across SteelSeries Gauges and saw that it produced a great JSON file (and has some cool gauges to go along with it too!). So I have a JSON file now, but I want SteelSeries to update every 2.5 seconds (near real-time). I can't find that interval anywhere...right now, it appears to be every 10 minutes.
Any ideas on how to get the 2.5-second interval going? A.J. On Monday, February 12, 2018 at 5:23:13 PM UTC-5, A.J. Burnett wrote: > > Hi Gary, > > Thanks so much for your response!
