Awesome. That same modded driver works with Comet Lake GT2. I was unable to get any other driver to work for it in 1507. However the brightness slider is not working for me. That was also reported by someone else on the win-raid forum (OS unknown, but most there are trying to use Windows 7). I am now using this driver and the app Dimmer to have an acceptable brightness on my Comet Lake GT2 laptop. Note that apps like this which manipulate colors to lower perceived brightness can introduce temporal dithering and eyestrain, but in my case whatever strain the Dimmer app adds is less than using the same laptop on a newer version of Windows 10. Sometimes I just like to turn it off though and use the laptop at full brightness. If ambient light is high that is the most comfortable way to use it.
What I would like to do is have some kind of physical filter. That would theoretically allow me to use it without any potentially eyestrain inducing software and use it at night as well.
