BoW was like super white, making it look more artificial than natural (imo kinda like E-white vs. MAO)
I’m with wixxzblu in waiting for samples
Title: Re: [GB] EnjoyPBT Extended 2048 + Koala switches
Post by: wixxzblu on Fri, 19 April 2019, 20:34:05
What I'm trying to say is that BoW was a new color for epbt/gateron, and the legends suffered in the process. Not saying the same thing will happen with this, but after BoW, I've been extremely weary of epbt sets. I think BoW also had a lot of warping issues.

Edit: nomad kit is missing R3 1.25 tab

hey biip, can you confirm that the koala switch is supposed to be 5g less in bottoming pressure vs the stock t1 and that there are no other differences? if so, i might have to buy a bunch :)

Am I seeing right that these come with scoops along with the bars? I haven't seen epbt that has had them so I am wondering if this is the case. Instant buy if so. I am a mega fan of scoop homing.

yeah, 62g instead of 67g. And an opaque housing which will result by a deeper sound. :thumb:

Getting charged for shipping is more a keyboard kit thing. I've never seen vendors charging for shipping later on when it comes to keycaps.

Quote
KBDfans Discord confirmed that it's a recolored POM T1 stem with a nylon bottom housing and a lighter spring, nothing else. So pretty much a recolored 62g T1.

I'm interested to hear a sane of a lubed Koala, but I think I might get some either way. The T1s are a pretty fair price, and the nylon housing will allow for a deeper sound which is my kinda acoustic.

GB page just states "June". Looks like caps will be fulfilled a few months after, so make sure you specify that you'd like them shipped separately if you bought them together.

Yeah, will do that.

Just wanted to make sure that switches arrive before think 6.5 ;)

Would be sad to have a keeb and wait for switches.

T1 Switches are cancelled... (https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/blljch/kbdfans_t1_switches_officially_cancelled/)
Does this mean Koala is cancelled too? I plan to get into the GB next week, so it'd be good to know if should still add them into the cart or it's pointless now

Post by: Starston3 on Tue, 07 May 2019, 12:37:28
From the looks of it it seems like Koalas are going forward.... but that can be for different factors such as:

1. they are different composite i.e. not clear
2. they have a different spring

So either the leaf or the stem (maybe both) has been modified or the stem to prevent return issues that t1 and holy pandas have had with lighter springs.

Let's wait until the dust settles to get a clear view of what is happening.

Any update on the Koalas MOQ? Curious, given the Stealios drama. Does the lack of T1 availability mean that more people will buy Koalas?

Per the KBDFans Discord, no - not cancelled.

I was wondering whether the J keys in the Nav Kit have homing bars similar to other vim key kits?
Personally I feel the nav keys would be of more utility if the J keys included a homing bar as it would not infringe on my ability to touch type.

Don't know if it's too late to make such a change, I'm new to this whole Keyboard Community. But absolutely love this keyset and was planning for it to be my first keyset.

Is this a change you would consider making to the nav kit? Or would it potentially increase the manufacturing cost of the nav kit to an unreasonable amount? I just wanted to know before I made my order because, I unfortunately do not see myself using the vim nav keys without a homing bar on the J key.

There are rumours that the Koala switch GB had to be cancelled because of a supplier problem, can you confirm or deny this? I was really looking forward to those switches :(

Rumours are just rumours  :p

If these don't get made that is going to be a real shame. Pretty bummed with how the whole situation turned out. Losing a very good tactile switch at half the cost of competitors was a real blow to consumers.

Idea for the future: dark gray keycaps with light gray or white legends. Extended 2048 Dark, if you will. Something akin to ePBT Slate perhaps (though with different shades of grey).

Just a random thought while window shopping.

Quote from Wei (KBDFans) :
Quote
I customized the koala switch through a friend, and then we found that the factory making fake tealios was the same as the factory of koala, but I have no evidence now, they have destroyed it. So I have to cut off the contact with them, so koala switch cancelled the order, and the T1 order that has not been shipped will also be refunded

The color will not be the same. these are more GMK L9 (I think GMK pristine uses L9) where the gok kuro shiro is more GMK WS-1. If you are curious I made a render with both sets together on reddit u/the-dude6969

the 2048 is more beige, where kuro shiro is a pure white.

gok kuro shiro will look more like GMK metaverse alphas.

yeah I'm not worried about the color for  2048 but more asking about if the factory will be able to reproduce the other set as well as 2048 in the scheduled time frame (September for 2048)

At this point, I'm treating no news as bad news :(

For the Hammer CRP set that ran on Massdrop. Apparently there were some difficulties, so if it runs again it won't run their.

ePBT still gets some flack, but so many other manufacturers have disappeared, while ePBT has consistently improved without spreading themselves too thin or compromising fulfillment.

please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the Nomad kit is the one that had some legends that had to be reworked and should be going out next week.  As far as I can tell the people I have seen with shipped kits have not been ones including the Nomad kit (mine included)... still waiting on mine to ship.

My 6.25u was perfect, and a _very_ small warp on the 7u, but nothing that would prevent it from mounting. About the same as my experience has been in the past with ePBT blanks also though.

There might be a few extras and there seems to be a lot of interest in them. Otherwise try the second hand market in a couple of weeks when more of us get our sets.

Hey all,

So the latest update which was sent to emails via customers was that KBDFans claims it will be shipping to us on the 10th of October. https://candykeys.com/news is a place where you can check for the newest status, if there is no news then we also do not have the information. For extras - NO extras will be available after shipping to customers this time, but only later so weeks down the line - Why? From experience from having so many kits, many things can go wrong with shipping, missing keys, etc. etc. so we will wait for confirmation of each customer who has ordered the GB that their sets are a-OK. Then we will release a date on extras in the NEWS section and the October CandyKeys E-Mail Newsletter.

So the latest update which was sent to emails via customers was that KBDFans claims it will be shipping to us on the 10th of October. https://candykeys.com/news is a place where you can check for the newest status, if there is no news then we also do not have the information. For extras - NO extras will be available after shipping to customers this time, but only later so weeks down the line - Why? From experience from having so many kits, many things can go wrong with shipping, missing keys, etc. etc. so we will wait for confirmation of each customer who has ordered the GB that their sets are a-OK. Then we will release a date on extras in the NEWS section and the October CandyKeys E-Mail Newsletter.

Any idea why there is such a huge difference in shipping dates ? First pics are 4th of september

Thanks for the update

On their discord, KBDfans claim that the GB has fully shipped (screenshot: https://d.pr/i/NvlolE (https://d.pr/i/NvlolE)). Is that true or not?

I got a shipping notice; but, it has not been delivered yet.

It’s now the 21st of October and I still don’t know if and when my sets are going to be delivered. I feel completely out of the loop and am disappointed by the poor customer care in this GB. Given that we’re now 2 months past the ETA, I’d expect a weekly update at this stage but it’s just radio silence.

I still not have received anything yet too.
KBDFans apparently sent the kits to Candykeys way after his ones. And they took like a full month to be delivered :(
It was blocked at customs last week. Hopefully, Candykeys should start shipping the kits this week!

You can stay in the loop by checking https://candykeys.com/news

Sorry for the delays, nothing I could really do…

No worries, I'm not complaining about the delay, just about a lack of updates. However, I missed the latest update on the Candykeys website, otherwise I wouldn't have complained here at all. Apologies.

Hello,

As someone asked about where their shipment was and complained rightly so, we encourage you to keep checking our news page: https://candykeys.com/news
and now KBDfans has said the leftover kits are shipping tomorrow, meaning if you are DHL shipped and have one of the listed kits or more, your order will ship then. 65% of orders have shipped.

Looks like 2048 extras got put up in a reconfigured kit list. Base kits are already sold out but unclear if they will be restocked.

According to their News page (https://candykeys.com/news/extended2048-dhl-and-leftover-dpd-shipments-ship-this-weekend), all the final shipments should get underway this weekend. Fingers crossed!

Have you checked the spam folder? My first shipping invoice from candykeys ended up there. It might be under DP Tastatur Ausstattung UG if you search your mail.

Someone else have issues with the ISO enter? It seems like somehow the keycap doesn't seat properly, which results in a feeling that the stabilizers get "stuck", and the key feels very sluggish. I put on a GMK enter key, and I did not have the same issue.

Sounds like it's warped. To check, place it flat on a surface and press on either side. You should be able to notice that the side you aren't pressing lifts up slightly.

To fix this, you need to heat the keycap with either hot water or a hairdryer, then press it flat. KBDfans has a video demonstrating this.

That's weird. They told me they made new molds for spacebars.

Just checked mine and they are very straight and perfect.

I’ve heard it’s more an PBT issue than a mold issue. Like it warps afterwards or something????(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191209/52a9d5d463ca590f8d20a8763a6feff0.jpg)

My spacebars were fine, but it seems like my ISO Enter key has issues. Anyone got an ISO board they could try their enter key on?
