It runs on a m32u4 so, theoretically, it could run on QMK as well. Do you know if the matrix is available to download anywhere?

Do you mean the code that you see in KLE under Matrix Mapping?

No, I mean the wiring of the switch matrix to the MCU, with that, I could write you a QMK firmware.

Well in my search to find other ways to program this board I did find some guys who wanted to do it with QMK but I haven't found anyone or any topic with that information unfortunately...

I Came across this thread but no conclusive information: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/xd84-custom-mechanical-keyboard-kit/talk/1820518

Sorry to take it back but, by the look of the schematics, that's too complicated for me to write a code.
I'm looking at your layout.

Should I give this a swing?:

Edit: n.v.m. it's only for flashing hex file.

This might be a stupid question, but could the problem be that I also have my current keyboard hooked up to my pc? Or shouldn't that matter?

Yes I noticed the Pause button as well and adjusted it but without succes. I'm thinking something must be wrong with the drivers of the board or something but I can't figure out what. I've added screenshots maybe that helps to see if I'm doing something wrong? Thank you for your time, much appreciated!
At your last, use online reflash(just click burn.eep) instead of downloading eep then reflashing with tkg-toolkit. Maybe kimera-core.hex in your tkg-toolkit is out of date. If you still want to use tkg-toolkit, try to down the newest version from https://github.com/kairyu/tkg-toolkit

Well that's the weird thing; I thought this board was Kimera-Core, but the TKG Toolkit recognizes it as Kimera. Maybe I made a mistake with the first time flashing and that caused the problems. I'll try to do it again with the newest TKG Toolkit, try to flash kimera-core.hex instead of kimera.hex, and see how it works out

Okay, so I tried to flash kimera-core.hex instead of kimera.hex but then the board isn't find by Windows. As long as I keep it on Kimera the board registers keys and is found by Windows as a keyboard. But when I drag my own made keymap.eep in the reflash.bat, it looks like it's going well but in the end weird things happen: my Home button registers as spacebar, my Z is nowhere to be found etc. So it looks like the layout still isn't what it should be.

I Don't know if the screenshot from TKG gives any useful info?

Thanks to everyone who tried to help me out. I Decided to let it go for a while and tried again tonight on a Windows 7 machine and somehow I got it to work now with my own lay-out!

Will try again later with added Fn keys to control the LED's. Cheers!

Edit: ........it doesn't work on my Windows 10 machine. Sigh....

Edit 2: I ended up re-installing Windows 10. Apparently I managed to replace HID drivers with WinUSB drivers which caused all the problems. Took a while but all is working now.
