I know the designer is waiting on the lead times for GMK to go back to a more reasonable time frame, but I'm still hopeful we can get a R2 this year still, might have to gamble on GMK speeding up production if the situation worldwide improves though.

Still waiting on my missing 1.75u shift, have been sending some periodic emails from 9 months ago, since last June to TKC. Last I heard was in February 2022, TKC told me that they had only received 7 fix kits in total and have ordered more.

Afaik some base kits were missing it but not sure how many. A couple of people had success by contacting Uniqey/GMK directly for the replacements, so that's an option if vendor customer support don't have any on hand or aren't being helpful 🙏

I did contact CandyKeys, who didn't get the basic kits missing keys. And I also contacted GMK, who told me they can't help me and I should contact the retailer...

How is this being solved now?

I really appreciate all the interest in a R2 but I have a couple other keycap projects I'd like to finish first! I do have plans for it at some point but not sure when atm, ultimately I'm just a hobbyist and just doing this stuff for fun, so I hope for some patience 🙏🙏

Any updates on this?

OP stated that might consider doing R2 only if the GMK wait times started to slow down. Although it's less crazy apparently. It still takes a while. Apparently if you run a GB at GMK now, the earliest would be end of this year.

I wouldn't buy into a set produced by Keykobo? How much would you be saving with them manufacturing it? I'm happy to wait for the GMK queue to trust what I'd be getting.

If you want colours and legends done right then GMK is the only manufacturer worth working with.

Hopefully once GMK Peach Blossom R2 is done we will get a Future Funk re-run. I would prefer if it stayed GMK even if it takes a long time.

I don't see what this has to do with GMK. Hoffman had a good post about some more intricacies of color matching. The manufacturer will match to whatever the designer provides them with.

Just to be clear, no designers are ever expected to do the actual formulating to arrive at the desired color for manufacturing. There are "color houses" whose entire business is to formulate color concentrate mixtures that achieve the target color at a given loading concentration (sometimes you'll buy the resin pre-colored; no idea what GMK does, but that's really not important).

The designer's role is to ideally select the correct target color that the supplier will match (they will match whatever is provided, if physically possible). If it turns out that the color in real, physical form is not what the designer intended, then the dreaded "color matching" cycle begins. This is where a lot of inexperienced designers seem to get caught. Translating from a screen to physical form is not trivial, and physical samples are always going to make things easier. Without some guidance or experience it's very easy to mess this up. However, despite being hard, it is still part of the designer's job to get right.

Poor colour matching is not a failure of GMK, it's the designer that did shoddy work. That's why colour samples are sent to the designer to be approved. GMK doesn't just make 'anything' and deliver it as the final product.

and that is why you do not join any GB run by amateurs, track record is important, R2 are however usually safe, GMK already have the colors

Not sure if I mentioned it here but I was told by a vendor that due to newer German pollution laws, GMK can no longer produce super saturated pinks/reds like the one in FF. I don't know more than that but if true, colors will have to be rethought or another manu will have to be used. I was thinking a translucent set in the same colors could be pretty fun.

curious to see what you do with a remix. In the same way that sleeves or WoB essentials had accent keys for ctrl alt shift, if there was an accent kit where the base color and legend were inversed, that would be awesome.

thanks for R1! love my icon mods

Iíll join the crowd in asking for an R2 I guess. When the group buy for this was ran I was dealing with some heavy family stuff so I wasnít able to buy in. I hope we can get an R2 eventually. A FF 2023 updated desk mat would go unbelievably hard as well. Whenever you get around to it, I know the hobby the last year or so has been pretty unfortunate with various issues, plus I canít blame you for wanting more of your designs out there!
