[IC] GMK M_ss_ng K_ys (Kit Updated)
« on: Sat, 08 June 2019, 13:25:14 »
Hi there fellow Geeks! Posting on behalf of Discord user jani80k#5980 whose idea this set was. He talked to Wodan at Clack in Cologne about releasing a fix kit for OG sets, which was approved, so long as it isn't named HADapter. So without further ado, let me introduce

GMK M_ss_ng K_ys



Old kit proposal:





Goals of this set

  • Convert vintage Cherry ISO sets to ANSI
  • Provide compatibility for smaller form factors (60/65/75)
  • Convert vintage text+icon mod ANSI sets to icon mod ANSI sets
  • Act as a mod kit for obscure layout vintage boards so their alphas can be used in modern layout builds
  • Maintain a reasonable price point

To be figured out in this IC

  • Keys to add
  • Keys to remove
  • General interest

If you're interested in this set, please take a second to fill out this google form and/or leave any feedback as a reply to this thread.

Availability, GB Timeline and Prices

EU Proxy: mykeyboard.eu
NA Proxy: cannonkeys.com
Other regions: If you're a vendor from another region and want to proxy this set, please get in touch with jani80k#5980 on discord.

MOQ: 150
Price: TBA

GB Timeline: TBA

Changelog

  • 2019-06-09: Fixed mixup in the render (PgUp and PgDn are now R2 and R3 as intended), fixed set name (apparently it could be read as something that's not very nice), fixed form link
  • 2019-06-28: Updated kit based on IC feedback

Thanks for the help pngu!

FAQ

What is the target price?
The goal is to keep the set reasonably small and the price as low as possible. Will keep you updated once I have more info.

What are the color codes?
Alphas: L9 base, CR legend
Mods: U9 base, CR legend

Example of an Cherry OG Keycap set?
This is what we get in Germany usually.

Are you not stealing from Wodan?
No, he approves and appreciates this GB and will even buy some kits.

Do the molds for R5 'Code' and 'Menu' exist? Carbon used 'Super' and 'Meta', which I also prefer. Apart from that, I second mod-coloured tilde and pipe.

The kit looks great either way, but would you consider adding a 1.25u R3 key to make it compatible with a whole bunch of staggered 40% keyboards?

In for multiple sets easily.

That said, +1 to the 40% key.1.25 R3 key for 40s compat.

I also think I'd prefer the classic text + icon rather than just icon.

Can we consider adding R2 PgUp, R3 PgDn and R4 End?

What will be the exact color codes for the caps and legends?

Will this be "M ss ng K ys" or "M ss ng K ys", if you know what I mean?  :D

Other idea, that could perhaps be a bit too much (or perhaps not): how about a kit of all the usual mods (but without any alphas)?

Thanks for all of your feedback. The form link has been fixed, please consider filling out the form if you're interested, thanks. All suggestions will be taken into account.

Do the molds for R5 'Code' and 'Menu' exist? Carbon used 'Super' and 'Meta', which I also prefer.

That's a good point, we'll get in touch with GMK and find out if those molds exist. If they don't, to keep cost low, the set would be updated to use Super/Meta instead of Code/Menu.

I'd prefer it be icon + text, but cool project. Always nice to have more options to utilize all the great OG iso sets out there. Also what's the point of the "control" key if the sets icon mods? Am I missing something?

Yeah I think I'd rather have that be a stepped key with the down arrow icon.

This should be icon+text imo, and I second the motion for mod colored tilde and backslash.
Other than that, great idea, very usefull. Price will be the main factor here I think.

This is usually already included in the og sets.

OG 9009 has 8u spacebar, though I suppose there is HADapter for that set, it's just harder to find now which is why I would have liked the 7u support in this set.

I suggest to run a WoB Icon kit together with this in a separate kit.
A lot of people have been waiting for another run of that since the first buy in 2016. I feel that it's time to move on and stop waiting for the original runner to do it again (last login was 2017 on GH).

Please consider it.

I have an OG Cherry set but some of the alphas are scratched a bit due to age. An option to get a full kit would be great. IMO there is no need for the 9009 accent keys and extended compatibility, just a basic set for most people with TKL or 60 percent boards.
