Please reconsider your decision not to offer brass weights for R2. You have the option for a brass plate, which would not look right, in my opinion, with the stainless steel accents of the weights. Why the need to distinguish R1 from R2 with different weight material if itís the same keyboard?

Looks great, for sure. Nice work!!

Actually, no brass plates offered this time too. Only SS and alu.

The Lion weight design remains the same but the inner weight is different. Renders are coming up, sorry for the confusion if it wasn't clear in the first post.

The decision not to offer brass weight again is exactly what you mean, I don't want an exact copy of R1, something similar but with its own difference. Hence, the different colours including the plates, and the different inner weight design.

R1 was a pet project of mine, to test my own ability to run a proper GB and get things right. And the results were exactly what I want. A quality board at not an exorbitant price :) It was private and only a small run of 30 units to friends.

I'll have renders up soon for R2.

Aww, I wanted to get one with a WKL anyway, but just to be sure, that beautiful dark red will still be an option for colors, right?

No brass plate/weight makes me a bit sad, I too hope thatís reconsidered, but I understand wanting to make the rounds different. It feels like a downgrade however. :(

Aw dont say that! I hope my renders and prototype will change your mind. But yes the red will remain. Its a gorgeous colour. The SS weight and plate will be sandblasted and TBH they're much more durable and won't dirty as easy. Brass will always patina.

It takes away significantly from the original, unique aesthetic. [...] And the arguments for tactile need seem to ignore the dozens of layouts [...] without f-row spacers.



There were some points made in favor of the f-row spacers earlier in the thread, because the space provides a "tactile" gap to know which f-key you are on. However, there are many popular keyboards without f-row gaps that people use.

I just wanted to point out (not even completely serious), that you said this unique aesthetic can be found in dozens of leyboards.

Like I said, it was more of a joke...

We will see what the final board will look like!  :)

Ah, I see. Lol.

What made the original design unique to me, was the separate f-row without the spacers. Having a separate f-row with spacers is just a tkl f-row, imo.

I'm definitely in the minority here, so just making a desperate attempt to convince people to stick with the original design. =)

The thing you are ignoring is there are lots of people like me with no TKL and larger boards. I have no interest in anything larger than 75%, which means the only current options are all 75% with no spacers. This with spacers IS the unique one, and thus that is what appeals to me. Without spacers, to me, itís just a normal 75% thatís missing a key and is slightly harder to use.

I totally get the similarity to TKL, but that is a feature in a keyboard that I donít currently possess. Also, he spacers arenít the same unless Iím missing something. They are a bit more compact that a TKL.

Part of why I donít like no gap is sets with alternating fkey colors. With spacers I think this looks cleaner.

I agree with those saying removal of the brass items isn't that great of an idea.  From the purchaser's point of view, it seems like you're purposefully producing an inferior board for the sake of differentiation and to make R1 more special.  I think a better option would be to tweak another aspect of the design slightly.

That's one of the thoughts I had regarding the brass weight as I would prefer a brass plate as well.

Secondly, I also prefer WK over WKL.

I'm sorry :( during R1 when I offered both choices, the numbers for each version dictated the overall cost. Theres also one important thing, when anodizing, the volume/shape plays a factor in producing an even colour. So if you have 2 differing 'shapes', anodizing can go slightly off. This is what I learnt during R1.

I want to prioritize quality. Hope that make sense.

I'm not sure if the labels being in the wrong place is making the firmware go wrong - the wiring is probably fine.  I'll have a look when I'm back on my computer as the firmware is too long to look at on a small phone screen.  If these keys work then it's not a problem :)

If you want to use pin D6 you can remove the LED from the Teensy and it will work as normal, but you're not going to be able to put it back.  Pin D4 should just work so check the wire/soldering.

Keyboards / Goldtouch Go!2 split spacebar
« Last post by batfink on Sun, 21 January 2018, 12:09:27 »
This looks like an interesting portable keyboard, albeit a bit pricey for what it offers.
I use an Ergo Pro as my main keyboard, but would like to have something similar, but small and portable for use with a laptop when travelling.

What I want to make sure is, that the two halves of the spacebar are capable of sending different keycodes. I can't find any reference to this anywhere, but I find it hard to believe that any sensible keyboard manufacturer would be so stupid as to provide a split spacebar and then force both halves to send the same keycode in hardware!! The Ergo Pro of course lets you use one of the spacebars as backspace.

For me, the ability for each side of a split-space keyboard to have different functions means the difference between it being a interesting option vs a pile of junk.

Keyboards / Re: Can't turn off RS96 RGB
« Last post by asgeirtj on Sun, 21 January 2018, 11:56:15 »
OK So I've tried troubleshooting the problem a little bit more:

I seem to be able to to control the RGB's to an extent but it is really random. Almost all the the RGB controls seem to only toggle the color. There seems to be only two colors I can use which are green and purple.

The RGB off button doesn't do anything except turn to green color if it it's in purple. Also, it's not possible to increase or decrease the RGB.

Attached is a picture of the controller. Doesn't seem to have any "desoldered" pins. Everything else with the keyboard works 100% like it's supposed to.

I've tried reflashing the HEX with TMK Keymap Generator but it didn't change anything. I'm doing everything the same way as I do it on my other RS96, where I can control the RGB's 100%. I have even tried putting the exact same hex file that I have on the other RS96.
