Iím interested but can you explain a bit better about the TX logo? They appear to be some kind of inserts now as opposed to the cutouts in the 84SE - is that accurate?

This board looks amazing and I'm almost certain I'll order one.

Couple of questions (sorry in advance for being a noob, never bought a board off GH or Kin25 before and am new to the mech keyboard game)

1) Which colour is the board featured in the pics Grey or black?
2) On the preorder form, how do I read the 0-4 winkey/winkeyless option?
3) Do I write the kind of layout I want in the comments?
4) Is this a do it yourself kit or is assembly an option?

Again, pardon the ignorance and thanks in advance

1) grey color
2) you can check the buying quantity on the options.
3) you don't need to write your layout. Because the switch plate has many holes for switch. You can assemble the board.

But not many.

Bag shipping cost was more expensive than i expected, so bag gb will not run again.

But spring, film and cable are not heavy, so they will sell by GB again.


Tx108se extras will be sold in March.
I will make google form.

All preorder tx108se were shipped to proxy.
It will take much time.
I paid international shipping cost.
Buyer need to pay only domestic shipping.

After checking domestic shipping cost, I will refund the difference.

Without suo 108L pcb, you can't use the program. It will not show keylayout.

Hi Kin!

I just wanted to check to see if you've sent the 108se extras yet (for me it was a black one that was invoiced and paid a couple of weeks ago)?

Kin, can you bundle all 4 of my boards together? The 3 from the antique, extra bags, and this? Hopefully it will save on shipping cost.

I reached out late last week and popkorn62 said he hadnít received them. He was a bit more specific when he responded in the extra parts thread or whatever itís called. I think he said he was expecting them in about a week.

I'm sure our boards will come soon.

Do we have a ballpark on keyboards starting to go out?  Hate to be a wet blanket. Iím just thinking of the time itís going to take to find out whoís short, the week or two for Kin to get the PCBís to you, and then the week or 2 for you to get the orders to us. We could be looking at quite a bit of additional time.

I appreciate everything you guys have done and Iím not complaining. I know 300 orders has to be quite an undertaking. Especially when people have placed multiple orders for different things and you have to match them all up. Now, youíre shot items. I can only imagine the logistical nightmare.

Just want to kind of have an idea of the timeframe and Iím only asking publicly because it seems like everyone wants info, any info, so they can be up to day.

Based on what was said above, there were only a few boxes with boards opened and since those are messed up, theyíve been bumped to the back of the list and wonít even be looked at until all the other orders are sent out.

Don't think you meant to ask me - but I'll take a crack at answering. When you download the zip file and extract it, then extract the zip within the first zip, it should create a bunch of files and folders. It looks to me the only exe file to run is called TX_Device.exe

Did you run this file after extracting suo.zip and then extracting the (second) zip file within that?

Yeah the file you run is tx_device (not tx_device.exe.config <- that's some sort of configuration file for tx_device).

What happens when, in tx_device, you click on the "Custom" tab next to the "Light Effect" tab?

So I just got my tx108se yesterday and I wanted to test the PCB before soldering.

It seems to power, but if I put *any* pressure on the usb port it powers off and resets. The soldering on this part for any level of board isn't great, and certainly not for a TX-branded product.

Kin - can you please suggest what I should do, as every time I move the pcb or keyboard it powers on/off?

Here are pics of the soldering on the usb port.

EDIT: Replacement PCB sent out already, outstanding and proactive response from Kin/TX!

It looks like night and day compared to the first pcb. Great turnaround to fix the issue. Thanks Kin and popkorn!

Is there a guide anywhere on how to use the flashing software or resetting the board? I tried to flash a board, and I'm not sure if it's bricked?

It's sending random commands over the USB, and I'm not sure what pins to touch together to get it to stop.

Dumb question: Am I supposed to remove the seemingly excess strips of PCB on the top and bottom of the board. No one here has mentioned it and  I didnít seem to have anything in the package noting it either? If so is there any clever trick to doing so? The top piece I feel like I can just snap off but the bottom piece feels more sturdy.

I almost asked this question earlier haha.  I was able to snap off both pieces.  you have to make it fit with the case/plate.  The bottom takes a little wiggling

Thank you for the screencaps. Iíll have to try it out, but I still have a few questions from the pics. Iíll hold off on asking until I try. They may be self explanatory once I get started.

Soldered my board this evening, and booted up the TX program.  I was able to program individual keys without having to flash the keyboard.

This is beyond science

I donít have the board w me to test but kin did say it is very easy and intuitive to use so...

Was wondering if anyone could help me out with a question:

 I've screwed in all my stabilizers and it feels like the plate doesn't flush with the PCB and this feels wrong. Like the plate hovers above the PCB making it really weird to pop in the switches. What am I doing wrong? I'm sure the stabilizers are mounted correctly.

I not sure if I understand it correctly but there is supposed to be a gap between the PCB and the plate. The plate and PCB don't sit flush meaning that they don't touch each other. The switch is fit in a way that only the top stays above the plate while the bottom housing sits between the plate and the PCB with the metal pins going into the holes of the PCB

Ah that's what I needed to know. I was looking at a Wodan vid of him assembling a CP board and it totally looked like the plate and the PCB were touching and so I thought that they had to. I'll go ahead with what I'm doing, thanks a lot man!

The plus or T LED on the PCB is flashing like crazy, I've made a film of it here:

Anyone know what to do? I've treated the pcb with the utmost delicacy.

You could reflow the solder for that LED...? Add some flux first and tap on some solder.

Just arrived today, looks gorgeous, a beautiful beast!

Ok, I'll ask  :)).  I have downloaded the software.  Now what?  None of the files I try to open will actually open, besides the picture of the TX logo.  All of the other files ask me to pick a program and none of them work.

Don't think you meant to ask me - but I'll take a crack at answering. When you download the zip file and extract it, then extract the zip within the first zip, it should create a bunch of files and folders. It looks to me the only exe file to run is called TX_Device.exe

Did you run this file after extracting suo.zip and then extracting the (second) zip file within that?


Oops...I copied the wrong person, but I think I tried that. Hereís a pic of what happens when I do that. And none of the programs I can pick from are going to work. IE,  MS store, notepad, paint, WM player, and word pad

What happens when I boot up the program is I have that blank page in you second picture, if I do get the prompt about the keyboard software after pressing the Suo button, nothing happens. So I'm basically stuck in the second picture without a keyboard.

The updater doesnt seem to work, it's stil on version 1.7.0.0 after the update. Super frustrating  :(

So I updated the Suo software with either FT001.cyacd or FT001-0915.cyacd and the board starting acting totally crazy. The Suo program no longer recognizes it and the board is spouting out keyboard inputs, alt-shortcuts messing everything completely up forcing me to unplug it. Video here:
index=1&list=WL .

The board was working fine until this except I couldn't program it. Is there a way to flash/reset the board somehow?

It was myvmistake.
FT001.cyacd and FT001-0915.cyacd were a old version firmware.
They were made before getting tx vid from usb.org.
So if you will update firmware with these files, the tx108se keyboard would not work.

I changed and uploaded new files. (With new firmware)

Built a 108se for my Pops.  Today he told me his keyboard stopped working.  Asked him if he potentially shocked the keyboard at all.  He does not remember any shock happening, just randomly stopped working as he was typing.

I have the keyboard now in front of me and can't get any PC to recognize it (tried 3 so far).  PCB seems dead. 

Any suggestions from anyone?  I'll be opening it up after work today to see if I can identify any issues with the PCB.

Have you tried fiddling around by moving the usb connection into the pcb? my first pcb had a cold/poorly soldered usb connection and it would turn off all the time if the usb connection / cord got nudged even slightly - i wonder if your board has a similar (albeit worse) problem?

If I follow Kin's instructions from earlier in this thread it doesn't do anything, I can't bring up any layout. I can't even control any lighting beyond the logo.

Help please Kin/popkorn..? Thanks!

I tried loading 1.7 but am getting a blank screen with no keyboard layout after choossing suo108 like popkorn had in her picture.
1.8 wouldn't load at all, and also crashed my mouse somehow.
After restarting I loaded 1.7 again, no layout but I was able to change the lighting scheme and change the logo colors, so can work with this for now I guess.
Thankfully the board is fullsize so pretty much most of the keys I need are covered, but I would like to program the 4 macro keys and some other binds!
also I am using windows 8

Yeah well kin would have to look into it given that he's moving to suo PCBs for all his boards.

I tried changing the locale to Korea too but didn't help.

Was really hoping for it to work. The Tx_suo_PCB_v1.7 is the only version where the TX_Device has actually opened. I don't get a keyboard gui/layout there but I can control the lighting. With the 1.8 and the 2.2 the TX_Device exe simply doesn't load  :-[

I just double clicked the key I wanted to set to FN and clicked on the Fn in the bottom of the layout window.
