I got my 78g Zealios for this build in.  Hurry upppppppppppp haha.  It's all good though, caps won't be in for a while.

This is the layout I'm gonna run on it.  Does everything check out?  I think it will work now based off finally getting into QMK and programming my Clueboard.  Excuse my poor color matching for GMK Plum as well.  Didn't know the color codes and didn't want to look it up lol.

Looks like a great layout  :thumb:

Evan placed in the order for PCB prototypes I'll have some screenshots up of the pcb renders sometime this week :D. Thanks for being so patient, it's been a long road and I'm excited to kick things off soon.
Woowoowoo! Think there'll be any further revisions? Any ETA for the GB if the prototype is entirely correct?

If the prototype is correct we will probably start gb shortly afterwards :D In the meantime we are working on the product page :)

Small update decided to add rounded edges to the plate. This will be how the final plate looks like.

I like this new round plate, it looks cleaner.

Just checking in to say that I'm very interested in the PCB and plate to upgrade my current 60%. Added my vote to the poll as well.

Small update, me and evan are getting a lot of work done on the project. We decided to not support rgb underglow for this round, the reason being is that we don't want to extend the project any longer. We want the board to support evan's configurator which at the moment does not support qmk only tmk. Hopefully you guys understand.

Thanks for the continued support.  :thumb:

Will you still make a keymap for QMK available or do we have to port it ourselves?

Shouldn't be too far off. Prototype PCBs should be here towards end of month and if everything is good on those gen we will be launching shortly after

SO. EXCITED.

I've never been so pumped to build a board.

Hehe, I can speak for the both of us. Me and Evan are hyped.

Definitely looking good.  Now if a high profile aluminum case gb can occur at the same time... 😃 :D

Evan's working on the retro 60, maybe it'll line up with the banana release.

Nice, that'd be ideal.
