[GB] GMK Beige Addon & Extension - Complete
« on: Sat, 29 October 2022, 03:34:28 »
GMK Beige Addon & Extension
As its name implies, it's beige. Why beige? Because beige is a pretty common colorway. Although I personally think it's boring, but it's great for this because you can find beige sets relatively easy to pair with this. I've been working on this along with DCS Vert for some time now, and I want to share it to you guys, and I also like to get some feedback on this. I know that I am running an IC for a DCS set in parallel, my actual plan is to run this after DCS Vert. But recently I saw that there're a few beige sets popping up, so I thought this would be useful to some people.

BAE Kit
Laur and I will be making a new mold for this with this legend for people to use.
We will use ANSI Enter stabilizer positions instead of ISO like what GMK has rn.
It would make it a lot easier to use on boards with fixed ANSI plate layout.


Bars Kit
For you guys who have banana spacebars.


2002 Kit
Poes from mykeyboard.eu offered me to take over GMK 2002 -o-
Shout-out to pngu for designing this.


CMYK Kit
In fact itís CMYOPK, but yeah...

it's weekend, and i just have time to write this.
considering this is my first time working with gmk, it has been really tough for me. i want to thank ankit, laur, blunt, hiney, geon, mike and my friends for helping me and giving me tons of information through out the entire ic process. even though it's not much, it means a lot to me. i don't wanna make this too dramatic, so just go checkout their projects.
ankit: daal, dcs wob, wob essentials, icon modi, raita, and soware revival
laur: retro runic and superweld
blunt: wob essentials
mike: too many, just go buy stuffs from them
hiney & geon: i think most of you guys already know them
and most importantly thank YOU. this project will not succeed without you. i love you guys <3

Also, just wanted to say thank you for taking the effort of switching the EU vendor from Mykb to Oblo, that's much appreciated!

yes, it's going to be like that. and yes, you'll need a dummy switch for the pipe key.

I am so excited that this GB is probably going to happen. I've bought a couple of old G80-MX3000 keyboards with double-shot caps just to clean them and store them for an event like this to happen. It would be my first participation in a GB ever, are there any things to consider? How can I make my order? I am very new to this topic, please don't judge me ;-D.

Best regards

Go to one of the listed vendors that is closest to you between now and nov 30th. Not all of the vendors have put it up yet. Just consider that it takes a long time to deliver

What layout of switches installed are required?
I don't see how ANSI Enter + Pipe above it is gonna work.

ansi layout
red circle: ansi enter & pipe key (we'll move it a little bit, so it fits pipe key position)
blue circle: ansi enter stab
why is there an additional switch/stab mount? idk. that's how sp does it. itíll not be present in our version tho. :)

so basically you'll make it like this (steelseries 6Gv2), but with a X mount in place of rod?

If youíre in a state where you pay tax, and youíre getting some of these kits and hineybeige base, shipping from Oblotzky once is cheaper than paying tax and shipping twice, and these kits are cheaper there too. You probably get you stuff 6 weeks faster too.

As someone that was interested and apart of the kitting discussions of GMK 2002 addon before mcmcmc took over I would appreciate to hear the reasoning behind the kitting changes after the handover from Poesjuh, which in turn inherited it from pngu. Now it looks to be exclusive WKL kitting as all the 1u bottom row supers was removed. Yet 1.25u mods in both R4 and R5 is included/kept but not expanded to include Fn+2x Super/Win, maybe useful for some Alice/Alice-like layout ?.

this is going to sound cocky but. because my set has r0&r5 kit which has keys for the normal bottom row. i don't understand why i would not add r5 1.25 keys for people who want to use it. limiting people who want to use the normal bottom row to r4, is oppose to my intention for this set ("Yet 1.25u mods in both R4 and R5 is included/kept" this is not correct. old kitting does not include 1.25u mods in R5.) so i remove supers to make room for r5 1.25 keys. i made this changes 1-2 months before submitting for quotes. i don't see any complaints, so i move forward with it. in addition, i agree with pngu's statement on adding window keys "It would be in contrast to the inspiration and my ideas for this set." in conclusion, i prefer it that way. that's pretty much it.

I thought that ones intention with buying a colored addon kit was to add a splash of colors. Removing supers and by forcing people to combine it with your R0/R5 kit for usage of complete R5 1.25u bottom row does not do that, it just adds extra cost.
I think by using the kitting you linked would make it palatable to a wider audience, but what do I know ?

While I do not agree with your reasoning I thank you for your response, GLWGB.

When we used ZFrontier before, it took 2~3 months to reship and we learned our lesson.

Doesn't matter who the lead vendor is. GMK ships to each individual vendor themselves.

You'd probably get the set fastest if you order from Oblotzky because he's located in Germany.
