Or saved myself. Just depends on how you look at it. I already got lucky with Kira60 and 268Ag. This woulda been nice. But my wallet woulda been sad. Plus Fjell Classic next month.

Just a few updates:

1. Invoices for the first 14 have been sent, we're sending it by batches so the rest should receive it over the next 12 hours. Invoices are in SGD because we are paying Percent in RMB.

2. Some people have kindly replied and told me that they will drop out. I will reraffle these slots.

Some explanation about invoicing in SGD:

Recently PayPal and Shopify converted our business account from USD to SGD. While it's possible for us to have money in both currencies, PayPal does not allow us to withdraw it in USD, only SGD. For the Kira buy this was unexpected and I paid for production out of my own funds since we would be losing quite a lot of money if we were to do USD (PP) > SGD (bank account) > USD (factory). This time around Percent has kindly allowed for me to pay in RMB, so SGD (PP) to SGD (bank) does not incur any further charges, which allows me to then remit in RMB to Percent as well without any loss, since we only have to take into account 1 currency conversion.

If you've emailed/messaged me i'll be replying it through the day, thanks for your patience.

Have Percent Studio made more keyboards/keysets than this and the skog? I just found out they had made a keyset also which is excellent!

I hope we will see more Percent GBs on geekhack in the future!

Invoice received and paid. I didn't see mention of color on the invoice, I assume we're getting our first (non-white) color selection? but I just wanted to confirm which color I was in for.

What are the odds that the Canoe might be run again in the future outside of China? It's been run multiple times on Taobao, so maybe Percent wouldn't mind if it's run again after the current set? I don't want to give up hope of getting myself one at some point.

No idea as of now

There will be a public Gsheet for you to check and confirm the colour choice  :D

Just paid mine now (I don't check my email that often q.q), hopefully in time. Some unsolicited advice: if you do future GBs, I'd recommend putting ~20 people on your "waiting list" and making that visible as well as the winners, so that those people are aware to check back in case they do get in later (e.g. Elton does this for Duck GBs).

Thanks for the advice, I did it for a previous buy but kinda forgot about it. Will take this into account the next time I run a GB  :thumb:

Canoe has been available twice in China, and only once to the public, it was a pre-stock sales.
The first batch in China was kinda color combo pre-proofing among some friends.
Future batches for China are planned.
As for int'l, there might be another run, depends on how well this one goes, but it will be with another color combo.

Sorry to bring the doom & gloom but my Canoe stopped working today. I didn't have a problem with it until today when it suddenly locked up and kept repeating the last key pressed.

Now, it doesn't light up, no keys work and when plugging into windows I get "The USB device malfunctioned and windows does not recognize it".

I'm asking some people for help but nothing I've tried is working. I'm searching google for some help but, it seems like the board is not getting power or the device drivers just got wiped clean somehow. I've tried plugging it into a mac, PC and various different USB cables.

For reference, my FC660C plugged into the same USB cable and port works perfectly fine.

I'm highly disappointed that this is an issue with such a "high end custom" keyboard.

that's crazy.  I have no idea what would cause something like that to happen.  Hopefully someone else here will be able to help you git it fixed.

Did you take it out of the case to try it?  Maybe it's shorting out on the case somewhere?

There has to be a fix for it.  Has anyone ever heard of a controller just dying?  Do you have a multimeter to see if it is getting power?

It sounds like the firmware is fried.
If the MCU were busted windows wouldn't recognize something is plugged in at all.
The firmware tells windows what it is and without it you'll get that message about not recognizing it.

Do you know what firmware and MCU it uses?
You're probably going to need an ISP programmer to reflash the firmware and bootloader.

I can see in his photos its an Atmega32A chip.  How would you go about finding someone with an ISP programmer?  Search for motherboard repair near me?

Makes sense it would be a mega32.  No native USB support.
If you know someone into Arduino programming they should have one.

There are normally headers on the PCB to plug in to.
