Does anyone know where to get the default firmware for the VE.A? I think mine needs a reflash.

In case you missed it, MassDrop has this keycap set going, the spacebar kit may work well with VE.A.

Does anyone here have experience using Swill's plate building tool? I'm having a really tough time modifying the ALPS file for the VE.A. Essentially, I'd like to: 1) split the backspace key into 2 1u keys, 2) swap the left and right split space bars and 3) change the stabilizer cutouts from ALPS to Cherry and Costar MX. Has anyone made a similar file for themselves?

It's going to be a while if and when we see anything.

Do you know this definitively? or are you just speculating?


Thank you! I saw this one but I thought the price was a bit high...but I guess that seems to be the only good baseline. 750 is enough to build a decent PC lol.

I spent $700 on mine, which is actually more than I was trying to put a PC together for =P

Considering the time it was simply between the korean VeA GB and the Massdrop one, the time the IC was on here etc.  It'll be a whole while.

The exception would be a R2, but he's denied it over and over

and over again  :blank:

The thing is... we actually got several(hmm... yeh, tens)  requests about stock or next round.
We released about 200 VE.As to geeky-mates all over the world. AND really proud of it :)
We don't care about rarity. But it's a bit old now. For a year and a half, we stuck in one model.
And VE.A is not suitable for production, SATA connector needs to be cut by BARE hands. and it's bugging me. and of course, was hard to handle.
So...
It's like chain-reaction kind of thing.
We want it to be fixed. Yeh.
That means, we need to fix cases also.
If we have to fix case, why not design a new one?
Thoughts reached here so far, still not ended. like cost, tilting, material, diffusing and so on.
And most of all, I am such a lazy bastard.
We are hoping you don't lose interests on us before we come back.

Hey, what a nice day to swim in thick smog! Damn. I got bad throat ouch.

I hope that designing is coming along well because I would give my left nut for one of these.

It only took a year or so, but I finished rebuilding my VE.A with the proper switches it deserves!

This is my first time trying SA since besides my Dolch Pac, it's my only MX keyboard. I didn't think I would really care for the profile but it has really grown on me!





Specs:
•Holtites installed for switches only
•Krytox lubed and stickered PCB mount vintage blacks from a busted up eBay NCR G80-0427. None of the mold numberings exceed 20.
•Gateron blacks on the macros, vintage grey for the spacebar.
•Springs swapped with Victorinox lubed SPRiT 63.5g 24k gold springs.
•GMK screw-in stabs with WYSE (pre-clipped) plate mounted inserts. Gold plated screws and wires.
•Black 3M Vinyl applied where the white pcb is exposed and as landing pads for stabilizers.
•Spacebars sourced from a 1976 grab-bag in order to match the Chocolatier alphas.
•SIP sockets paired with the color change lock LEDs
•Wenge wrist rests from Alienman's groupbuy.

usb-c is cheap, easy to source and easy to hand solder ?  :confused: . Don't get me wrong USB-C is great but for a product you want to be able to customize and DIY it's still not the greatest.

Exactly. Not to mention ZeFyr's post was from Feb 2016...which means his decision in the favor of SATA was probably made in 2015. How common/cheap was USB C in 2015???

USB C is probably a more likely option now though.... it will be interesting to see what he chose now.

Sata Cables should be fairly easy to get custom cables for.
In addition too of the shelve sleeved cables, mdpcx sleeving is available for Sata cables, so if you say order a custom usb from Pexon you can always get matching sata.

Nothing against going usb-c, but I quite liked sata =)

Mine came from Pexon. Just a shame there's not a US option for something like this when there are so many options for USB.

How do you set the debounce value? My VE.A has been sitting around because of this issue
