[IC] SA SNES
« on: Fri, 14 June 2019, 10:05:55 »



How do we make the SNES idea relevant again? (r.i.p. intelli78's GMK SNES)

SA profile seems like an obvious choice for a high quality set:
  • Doubleshot ABS
  • THICC caps
  • SP's Pantone colour matching is on point
  • Super wide selection of stock greys
  • Profile: 112343 (sculpted) vs 223333 (half-sculpted)
  • The seldom used Filco legends (SP Helvetica) have that retro-modern aesthetic

Can SP do legends in the upper left like this for similar cost? Normally they’re centered.

Also, I’m a big fan of r3 profile because it supports various ortho/ergo layouts. But if you decide not to offer those sculpted is probably preferred.

YES PLEASEE ever since GMK SNES has died there's been a hole in my heart for a set like this. A few things thooo~
A optional mod colored F-Row would be pleasing. ;D
Also, would you consider having a separate kit to get these colored "WASZ" and "[;'/" keys? Obviously in the SNES colors that you already have.

Yes, the Filco caps pictured are actually made by SP. Those are stock legends with no extra cost (confirmed with SP).

It's probably a little too fiddly to work, but a novelty with a simplified single-color version of the controller illustration from the Super Famicom box could be neat:

Yes please. Skipped the previous run hoping for an SA version.  Sculpted is my favorite but I can go either way. Please add support for WKL, Tsangan and hhkb layouts with stepped capslock, split shift and split back space.

The Famicon colours are probably not gonna make it... because they would have to be custom colours. Extra things like this are the reason why GMK SNES was so expensive and never hit MOQ.

I personally prefer WASD over WASZ, but I'm not closed on any idea.

Love the idea, but I would have preferred to see a revival of GMK SNES (with extra add-on famicom color mods as Kokaloo mentioned) as opposed to SA SNES, as it would make a nice companion set to GMK DMG. I suspect the growth of the community would make it more viable this time around.

Oops I got them mixed up, still waking up on my end. I meant the SNES colors since I read in the OP you didn't want to do custom colors.
Preferably WASZ since that's the controller layout! :p

That's on @intelli78. I contacted intelli before launching this IC, but didn't get a response yet.

To be clear: there is absolutely no plan of taking over GMK SNES.

I wanted to do something considerably different-- given that GMK SNES pretty much outlined the most sensible colourway for this theme.

Second. GMK is nice, quality stuff, but there are lots of profiles we need more of, MT3, SA, DSA and XDA stuff.

Minimum order quantity for custom colors was much higher back when this ran and it ran at a bad time during other popular group buys/the holidays.

MT3 or MDA SNES would be among my dream keysets.  I'm down for SA though as a more realistic option.  (It is a shame that MDA is only on like two sets ever - it's a very pleasing profile to type on.)
