Based off GMK's render for the keyset, I'd say no. The 1u R4 keys aren't included, and Sherry had been pretty adamant that the GMK render is correct for what keys are included.

Right but the question is does the PCB support it? Bleh I hope it does. Getting two 1.5u keys on top of the 1.75u shift will be such a pain in the ass. ****ed up key units are literally my only problem with this keyboard... aghh.


Why the hell use that layout in those photos then?
 

I'm not sure what you mean, but the EXENT keyset fits the EXENT keyboard perfectly. There are extra keys for spacebars and ISO keys as well.

Right but I'm not buying the Exent/GMK set. I'm putting something else on. Ergo, I don't have two R4 1.5 u keys or a R4 1.75u shift.

Given what I will have, filling the bottom row with all 1u keys (to the right of the space bar) is the easiest option.

So the question is, does the PCB support 6x1u keys to the right of the spacebar? Does the switch plate support it?

I personally am having a hard time understanding what you're saying/asking. The PCB covers the layouts pictured and the GMK keyset accurately displays every key available. How's any of this confusing? If you're putting a different key set on it then make sure it comes with two R4 1.5s and a 1.75u rshift - how's this complicated?

How can I possibly be any clearer?

- I didn't get the GMK set
- The sets I did buy have neither an R4 1.75u shift nor 2x1.5u R4 "Function" keys. (Though they do have a 1.75u key I can use in place of shift).
- What they do have is a lot of 1u keys I can put wherever I want.
- I bought these keysets WELL BEFORE I knew the Exent even existed, and I don't plan on buying any more sets for the forseeable future.

So based on what you're saying, the PCB and plate DO cover the layouts used in the photos/render? You know with all the different bezel colors? I understand that the GMK set DOES NOT allow that layout, i.e. 6x1u to the right of the spacebar. The question is, does the Exent PCB and switch plate allow it?

The engineering sample has 6 1u keys - http://imgur.com/a/hmJ5m .  Also, the recent PCB pictures definitely have 6 1u swich positions.

Whether the plate supports it?  If so, the layout graphic should be updated to include that layout right?

Well I'd presume as much. But I'm not talking about the GMK set.

I was thinking the GMK layout graphic illustrated all the layouts possible on the Exent. I think this is false, and that graphic only represents the layouts possible on the GMK set.

So, basically, I got confused. I think it wouldn't be terrible if someone could upload a graphic illustrating all the layouts actually possible on the exent, assuming the number of permutations is reasonable.

If you look at some of the technical drawings it appears the plate is slotted on the bottom row. I'm pretty confident it supports that layout. I'd be shocked if I got the thing and couldn't do it.

Reading these comments was pretty entertaining haha; I wish I would have checked this thread earlier. I immediately knew what PancakeMSTR was trying to ask and might have been able to clear some things up.

Can I ask a quick question? All the photos with, I guess, the GMK keyset have, to the right of the space bar, six 1u keys. This layout is actually viable, right? Because the "layouts" picture/diagram doesn't show it.

Here's a link to a pic of the prototype brass plate. It's completely open on that right side of the spacebar. Assuming nothing changes from the prototype it looks like you can achieve this layout as long as the PCB supports it (and I think others have confirmed it does).

EDIT: And what a gorgeous PCB that is. Whew. I bought a second one in case I screwed up the first one somehow during my build, and I'm glad so. Best case scenario I can just look at the spare and admire how pretty it is.

Why did the order form say dull polished brass then? To me that does not mean brushed finish, but I'd be happy to hear others' opinions. People paid $30 extra for a polished brass plate, so if after payment it is now not polished, please share the reason.

I actually prefer the brushed finish. I have a preference for things "matte"; smoother, has texture, no fingerprints..but again, personal preference here.

I think a polished finish would look better. The plate isn't going to get a lot of direct touching to pick up finger prints, and polished brass takes light so well it's a shame to dull that down at all. I also think the contrast of polished brass against the matte finish of the case would look really nice, better even.

Also curious why the Brass plate has been switched from polished to brushed?

That looks very nice, the render's well made - needs DSA Slasher on it instead, though; it'd look so good on the black Exent, even more so with the Murderface Gamer set - gotta bother DaleSnail so he gets on with that sooner rather than later! :blank:

Lol roughly but likely way more. Keyboards still tend to maintain value, so I'm not too worried. This hobby almost pays for itself with the right planning. I expect more hype once people see how great these boards are going to look.

Yeah, I've thought about that. I probably could have bought two exents and two F77s and sold the spares each for what I paid for both and essentially broken even, but it's just too much anxiety to be honest. Mostly I suppose I'm just glad that if I decide at some point getting into keyboards was stupid, I can sell everything for at least what I paid, if not (possibly significantly) more.

I only bought one, and that alone was enough to set off my "this addiction is getting serious" alarms.

I'm not even quite sure what the point of buying more than one is? Can ya'll really not decide on a single color?

I couldn't  :-[

Black with Round 6/Oblivion
Blue with Dasher
Pink with GMK Laser

And each one can have different switches that I can use depending on mood, weather, day off the week, or astrological period!

So roughly 1300$ worth of keyboard.

Okay. Glad to hear I'm doing okay. Post pictures of the results please.

Lol roughly but likely way more. Keyboards still tend to maintain value, so I'm not too worried. This hobby almost pays for itself with the right planning. I expect more hype once people see how great these boards are going to look.


Yeah, I've thought about that. I probably could have bought two exents and two F77s and sold the spares each for what I paid for both and essentially broken even, but it's just too much anxiety to be honest. Mostly I suppose I'm just glad that if I decide at some point getting into keyboards was stupid, I can sell everything for at least what I paid, if not (possibly significantly) more.

Don't worry, it was stupid regardless ;). I think most of us share the similar outlook.

The amount of stupidity pales in comparison to all the feels of HYPE!

I loved Black and Silver too much to just pick one, to be honest. Gives me more to play around with in terms of configuration and whatnot, too. Plus, this collab has me too HYPED.

My choice was even less healthy: I got physically anxious when I thought about only getting the one color I liked and the regret I might feel at not having chosen the other. I think I'm at a 'call in the troops' level of addiction

That sounds terrible.

I guess I'm lucky: silver silver silver only thing I'm ever interested in. Goes for all (aluminum housed) keyboards. Blue with Dasher (or dancer? Whichever) is tempting, admittedly, but I didn't buy that set anyway so doesn't much matter.

Silver with either GMK Pyro or GMK snes. I can't wait, it's gonna be hot.

It's okay, it happens to me too, I just kinda sugarcoated the stress and process in picking colors. E8-V1 and the MIRA were even more stressful, had me actually agonizing over choices/options for a bit.
