Who can identify this OLD keycap set
« on: Wed, 14 August 2019, 14:39:10 »
I'm talking about the number row in these photos:  https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=29324.0

It is usually found paired with the OG Red Alert from Korea, however it is obviously not using the SP legends from that era.

What is it?  I have a set but I don't know what to call it.

thanks.

I think it's just an addon kit for OTD red alert, dunno what else I would call it:

I believe it was an addon pack for the OTD Red Alert set, also made by SP.

Well that's pretty conclusive, thanks.

I always assumed that they were separate because of the bizarre legends.  Guess I was wrong :)

if you're actually reading other people's posts on geekhack in 2020 you're doing something wrong
