I'm not exactly sure why Micro Switch's keyboard does not feature ASCII sublegends on all alphas, I did complete it using the standard ASCII table. Thanks to constexpr for the idea of putting the remaining commands on other alphas with a 64 character offset.

H, J and M don't have ASCII sublegends in the original keyboard because their corresponding codes (BS, LF and CR) already have dedicated keys (DEL, LF and CR). That said, putting them "back" on in this set is for the best.  :thumb:

Doesn't look that good. I would have joined myself if this was offered in a sculpted profile such as SA, so as to keep things more faithful to the original. This in Cherry profile doesn't do it for me. :(

I really love this set, not very often you get a great neutral set, but there are so many different kits and bits I want right now so its hard to pick and choose. I really hope this gets made even if it does take longer than it deserves

What time does the group buy end. I get paid tomorrow so was going to join then, but Kono just says the 29th. That leaves the actual ending time quite ambiguous.

A extension is definitely happening, so don't worry about that if you need a couple more days.

Everyone says that but forgets that Handarbeit had an MOQ of 150. This is 500. This design is clearly leaps and bounds better, but also has to sell leaps and bounds more. I really hope it gets there, love this set.

Actually, I didn't forget. However, it sold 230 units after the first run failed at 32 base sets.

Handarbeit had Krelbit w switchmod doing some great advertising on forums and keeping everyone up to date. (See Mom, I can get my point across while being polite)

Once we hear more details, we should probably keep reddit up to date w it.

I was literally just thinking that this set would probably sell better with some more marketing. Is it just me, or has it been strangely radio silent for an Oblotzky set?..

Also, don't tell me how to argue on the internet, Dad.

Oblotsky, thank you for your money and your work here.

I think r/mk and r/mm reddit posts might get a few more buyers. Twice or three times more probably wouldnt be obnoxious. I'm happy to make them but I know your name carries weight.

Of course, I will update on reddit today as well, was late yesterday and I like to stick around in case people have questions or so, didn't want to post and go to sleep.

Kono store posted about ASCII : GMK gave us an estimated transit date of May 6th! It will ship to customers soon after the warehouse is back in order.

But there is no plan posted about ASCII except Kono store. I am not sure if this is real.

Do you have any plans on running this in a uniform r3 SA profile as well? I love retro type keycaps and double shot SA would be amazing with these sub legends!

Iíve looked at that set but this has a uniform color which I would prefer.

Have there been any updates regarding the shipping date? Last update from Kono's website says they originally estimated a ship date of May 6th. Just curious, as I'm sure covid-19 is delaying shipping dates.

GMK ASCII
We are waiting on GMK to give us a new update and timelines. These should be finishing soon as they were intended to finish earlier this year.
So it's gonna take a while  :-[

Update: Nothing to update at this time. Shot GMK an E-Mail asking for estimated production timeline, waiting for reply.

Any replies from GMK?

They replied but did not specify a new shipping date yet, they will let me know ASAP when they have it. Sorry!

Blah...I passed on this set because, at the time, I was under the mindset that I've been buying so much

Definitely regret it

There will be extras.

May I ask where the extras will be sold? Will it be on ZFrontier?

Got mine today. Really nice set! Is GMK doing eco-friendly packaging now? No more plastic cases, instead fiber paper-like packaging.

Yes, hineybush has a good review of the new packaging on YouTube. Just turn the sound down a little.

I feel like throwing my extras in a ziploc bag is an upgrade to the new GMK packaging.

But does it still work?  I donít mind a bit of banana as long as the stabilizers donít bind.  Just canít use on a lower profile board where it shows.

Seems to work okay with durock stabs. I do happen to mind, but I'm not going to get into that debate again here.

Slight banana is fair, but I don't think many will notice unless you're looking for it. That said, GMK has done better in the past.

Got mine in. Indeed some warping on both space bars.  The set is stellar.  Space bars are less than stellar. 

Iíd love to get replacements just to have the set be a 10/10.  But where would we go?  Kono?

Oof thatís not good. Have yet to receive mine but I see the spacebar warping saga gets more real by the day.

Everything else is good as well ^_^

Unfortunately we're still waiting for GMK to release their specs. I know with 9009 I had to submit a ticket to Dixie.

Any chance of this set getting a R2? I have absolutely fallen in love with this set, and while I can definitely grab one secondhand, I would be happy to wait for a R2 if it was a possibility.
