Hi SiegeTowers,
I joined this GB yesterday. and i just saw the shipping using DHL. is it possible to use registered mail instead of DHL? or is there other options?
because in Indonesia DHL have very bad reputation, they charged me with extra cost that more than the value of the package itself.
please just use cheaper service. i don't mind if take longer to arrive.

yes, but please if it possible don't use DHL. DHL in Indonesia is a corrupt company you always have to pay extra fee to get your item even you already pay the shipping cost. especially if they know the value of the item.
i bought 3 t-shirts($20 each) from valve official store with shipping cost and they still charge me $30 extra.
friend of mine bought some item around $150 include shipping and they charge him $70 again here.

i hope there will no problem. but  if it possible to use other shipping method i'll very glad.
thank you.

Man this set is really great, plus free shipping worldwide.  Hopefully it is popular enough to become a Cherry profile at some point.
It would look great on a blue or dark grey case.

the default are the matte ones right? i actually didn't know that i can have them in a semi-gloss finish close to SP's until today but I e-mailed z-frontier about it already. Asked them if the pricing would be affected if i would want to have them in semi-gloss. but if that'd jack the price up i'll just leave it as is to avoid complications with the ones who already paid. Would really want it in semi-gloss tho.

Hi Siegetowers!
Are we too late to add some keys to make this set more compatible with 60% layouts??
I mean: R2 1.5 units backspace and tilde/backslash in blue, plus R3 1.0 units ctrl, alt and fn and/or R4 1.0 units fn.
Last ask: a couple of "accent" keys in an alternative yellow/orange (esc and enter) would turn this in the perfect ultimate set (my personal taste......)
Great one anyway.....

Hi there sputnik. I'm sorry to inform you that such changes are kind of impossible as of the moment. Maxkeys refused to add certain keys because they still haven't done the molds for them. Also just went for simpler colors to avoid over complicating the set. That being said, i hope you still support this group buy. That's all and have a nice day!

I thought so too. That's why my original plan involved compatibility keys such as the hhkb bs and backslash. But when i proposed the desired keys for the set, they told me that i can't have those.

Yeaah. They said that they can do a glossy finish, but it has to be for a light set. They don't want to do a non matte finish for a dark colored set.

I have bought 3 keysets from Zfrontier now, and I haven't been charged any extra for either of them yet. I'm not saying it can't happen but it hasn't happened to me yet at least. 
Sometimes I get charged with items from the US either by DHL or customs office here in Denmark, but so far no problems from ZF.

I just found the following infomation from official zfrontier china,

"新版 MAXKEY 在之前的基础上改进了工艺,精度更高字符粗细更为一致。同时优化了字符间距,去掉 Backspace 中间的空格,并将 Escape 改为 Esc、Delete 改为 Del,使得整体效果更为简洁美观。"

And plain translation is,

‘The new version of MAXKEY improved on the basis of the previous process, the higher the accuracy of the characters more consistent. At the same time optimize the character spacing, remove the middle of the Backspace space, and Escape to Esc, Delete to Del, making the overall effect is more simple and beautiful.’
(Sorry, I'm lazy just google translate it)

From your render, it seems to be no such change, could you clarify this or more specific what actual legends will it be?

« Reply #53 on: Thu, 02 November 2017, 00:56:07 »
I just found the following infomation from official zfrontier china,

"新版 MAXKEY 在之前的基础上改进了工艺,精度更高字符粗细更为一致。同时优化了字符间距,去掉 Backspace 中间的空格,并将 Escape 改为 Esc、Delete 改为 Del,使得整体效果更为简洁美观。"

And plain translation is,

‘The new version of MAXKEY improved on the basis of the previous process, the higher the accuracy of the characters more consistent. At the same time optimize the character spacing, remove the middle of the Backspace space, and Escape to Esc, Delete to Del, making the overall effect is more simple and beautiful.’
(Sorry, I'm lazy just google translate it)

From your render, it seems to be no such change, could you clarify this or more specific what actual legends will it be?

Hi. These are just renders and the only thing inaccurate here is the delete key. Beloeve what's in the main site. They're the ones coordinating with maxkey.

Do you think the  MOQ will be reached anyway at this point? 

I mean:

- 176 x $115 = $20.240 
- $20.240 / $95 = ~213 sets 

I mean even if by ourself we don't reach the goal (and with 1 day missing i doubt) will be worth anyway for them to buy the extra sets to reach the 200 MOQ. 

That's also why we should have a commit button i guess, since many more people would join if the price was $95 instead of $115

Idk, at this point might be too late but i believe that if the moq goes lower and the GB gets extended, many more people will join (over the 200 planned).

Announcement!!

So after a few follow ups asking for update, they told me that they're just starting the color sampling today. I'm sorry but i think this will be pushed back. I wish i could've done something to prevent this but i think they are also filled with orders recently. Again I apologize everybody. I will give you updates non stop whenever i get some and will also keep asking from zf and maxkey.

'Hey guys, that project should be done tomorrow, can I have an update?'

"Oh, we actually just started yesterday, and none of the parts have arrived yet."

Sounds like some people I work with...

No biggie M8, it's not your fault! If anyone joins a GB and expects to get their stuff on time, they need to learn a lesson, anyway...

Hi there. Sorry for the late update. ZF and I have been pretty busy just to find a solution over maxkey's short comings. They refused to start production until we give them physical color sampled of the colors when in fact before thestart of the gb they reassured us that they can match our colors given our existing data and files we sent them. I ordered abs chips from SP and had them sent to maxkey just to effin get it started. Everything's just really frustrating and what's more disappointing is they didnt even tell us earlier!! It took us a dozen of mails just to know that they're having problems. Again i am sorry for the delay but i promise everything will be done by zf and me just to make everything perfectly.

Many thanks,

No problem. You're doing great, man. I don't think anyone expects these things to stay on schedule. We all appreciate all the work you've put into this. Super excited about this set.

Hi there. Sorry for the late update. ZF and I have been pretty busy just to find a solution over maxkey's short comings. They refused to start production until we give them physical color sampled of the colors when in fact before thestart of the gb they reassured us that they can match our colors given our existing data and files we sent them. I ordered abs chips from SP and had them sent to maxkey just to effin get it started. Everything's just really frustrating and what's more disappointing is they didnt even tell us earlier!! It took us a dozen of mails just to know that they're having problems. Again i am sorry for the delay but i promise everything will be done by zf and me just to make everything perfectly.

Many thanks,

Don't get mad over Maxkeys shortcomings, you're doing all you can, we can see that from the updates and that's all that matters (at least to me lol) I'm really looking forward to this set and am glad you're updating us as you can, keep it up!!!

Well... received this from ZFrontier this morning. Confirmation that production is not launched yet...

Maxkey was not able to replicate the exact colors from Seigetowers' design till now.
We are working closely with the designer and helping Maxkey's factory to produce the qualified color sample. Mass production will start once the color samples get passed.

Yes. The color chips from SP is still on its way to the factory. I believe once they get it they will be able to get things done. Again I am really sorry that we are delayed but i can't settle with inaccurate colors. I want this to be the best it wasnmeant to be.

I Don't know if there are real life pictures of the fixed molds from MaxKey but I received a different set I ordered and thought you guys might find some pictures interesting. I Think this is a set with the fixed legends:

I think SA Ashen R2 had the first of the fixed molds. But there something about the OG Escape that I like, managed to snag a R1 a while back.

I ordered the same one :D in transit ! Happy to see that "ESCAPE" "SHIF T" and "BACK SPACE" issues are solved, my last Miami set was based on the ancient molds.

Is Maxkeys in China?

If so, that'd explain it.

Lesson learned with Maxkeys, I guess? This **** would never, ever fly with SP.

Lately I have not heard favorable things about maxkey's. I am starting to wonder if its a case of they become to popular to fast and can't handle the backlog.. are if its a case of just lack luster service. Kinda sad thought for SA fan's as SP and Maxkey's are the only two real SA producers I know of.

Yeah, I think it was sort of a big shift. For a while, SP had backlogs of YEARS, and tons of projects going through them... Then Maxkeys showed up and was like "Look what I can make for $100 in a few months!"... And then a lot more projects started going that way.

And last I heard, I think SP's SA backlog is down to 6 or 7 months...

Who knows... I'm not all that upset, though. It does suck that it's all so late, but at some point you just realize you're the passenger on the wild ride.

SP increased capacity for SA and a lot of people have done maxkeys GBs, so SP's backlog is down to 6 months
