Interest Checks / Re: [IC] JTK Arctic (Updated Renders & Novelties)

No ISO is a bummer (for me - I know most people won't think the same ^^) but that does look nice and that's a great price!

Do you have an ETA?

Group Buy will start next week soon as ZF gets all set up, and the buy should last a month.  I'd estimate Q1 of next year for completion, but as we all know, JTK is quite busy with Hana and what-not.

Instead of the Menu key as nobody uses :)), can you do a extra novelties 1.25 with ごじら  ( Gojira )  :p
I won't be adding any novelties aside from the main logo as there are already a lot of keys.
The menu is staying because it is a standard key and I see people using it once in a while.

No worries, just a gimmick side note :)

Again looking very forward to this!  :thumb:


Although a Gojira novelty key would be sick  :)


I hope OP is ok with this. just a reference for fun :)) but here is something to Sleep on;)

Hello! I have been a proud owner of a stock Corsair K95 for quite some time, but my older brother gifted me a set of portal 2 themed keys for my birthday and that is now my primary keyboard. A couple of weeks ago, I came into the ownership of a CM Storm Quickfire Rapid and while looking to rekey it, I found a community that I could enjoy and stay involved in. I hope to find some inspiration and techniques from this plentiful community!

My video game taste is very broad but I have recently been putting in some hours on Sea of Thieves.

Looking forward to this!

Why donít keyboards sleep?

They have two shifts.

The keyboard god speaks! What do you think of these? Do you know anything about them? They haven't arrived yet.

You may also be interested to know that I recently bought yet another UK Model F XT made in Oct 1986! I have another UK F XT I got a few weeks ago from as late as 1985, and I thought that was young... Were the 5150 and 5160 still available after the Model M was introduced?
I have the butterfly switches, but not the other Marqs, so I wouldn't know :) .

They still made the PC XT as late as August 1987! They may also be retrofits; you know, replacement keyboards for older systems. That said, I'm pretty sure that by that time they had already brought out the XT Model M, so I'm guessing that these were for people who didn't want to "upgrade" to a Model M (yes, it was originally considered an upgrade ;) ).

That's really interesting. I thought the XT Model F and the computers it came with were phased out in favour of the AT. Why did they still sell it that late? Was it a cheaper option?

I'm dying to get my hands on this XT! It better sound as musical as the one in LazyGameReviewer's intro. ;P
The PC (and XT) were revolutionary mainly in how open-source and third-party everything was. It was assembled from pretty simple parts off the shelf, really - they opted to use fairly average-spec (but easily available!) components and even software, even though IBM made much more powerful (but not easily available or as affordable) stuff in-house. The PC AT on the other hand was meant to be top-of-the-line, a computing powerhouse for the time. I suspect that's also partly why it sold far fewer units (and by extension, why the F AT is so much harder to get hold of than the F XT). 

IIRC, I narrowed the sound of LGR's intro down to the F XT, yes :) .

That is really cool stuff! Thanks for that information! It's a damn shame the PC AT wasn't more common, because I'd love to get my hands on an original AT Model F one day. I guess its rarity makes it more desirable. :P

Oh yeah, you can tell the thock that it's an XT in LGR's intro - but how does his sound so pingy and cool? None of mine have sounded THAT nice. :P (I love ping, in case you haven't noticed)

You'd need a usb3.1 chip handling the hub, separate from the keyboard circuitry and atmega. From there, you could just run the atmega power and data lines and the appropriate CC resistors to one of the hub's downstream ports, and the hub would fall back to 2.0 for the board but still allow 3.1 devices to plug into the other port. That'd be a fairly complex design though, and would need all pins wired on the usb-c connectors, but it'd be glorious. Maybe integrate something like this?
