All unpaid orders has been discarded. No idea what happened to those people but they won't be able to join our future GB. Also the GB entry is closed, will arrange production asap.

Thanks again for all of you guys who support this GB! :thumb:

Thank you very much for this GB and putting me in! I'm super happy about this!

There were originally 33 spots but now there are less due to unpaid invoices and canceled orders. Giving frosty a PM couldn't hurt, I'd say your chances are pretty good.

Just to make sure: the bottom row is Ctrl / Alt / Space / Alt Gr / Ctrl, right? (or at least no Alt Gr but just Alt instead)

Because what I'm reading here freaks me out: https://www.reddit.com/r/mechmarket/comments/7l9wxl/eudeh_matrix_abel_mech27_w_paypal_trades/
"not programmable afaik, left Alt key functions as a windows key so no AltGr for EU-Layouts"

I don't mind no programmability (and entered in the GB informed) but I really do mind if the keycodes sent aren't the standard ones.

You could switch between standard layout (Ctrl / Alt / Space / Alt / Ctrl) or left alt as windows by pressing "PAUSE" and "~" at the same time.

Hey frosty,

Any news about the ano?

Also, even if the firmware is not programmable, do you think it would be possible to have its sources somewhere on GitHub or elsewhere?

No updates at this time. We have no plan to release the firmware as opensource in the near future.

In order to do any unauthorized action, a specifically defined USB driver is required. Without any kind of software support, the keyboard cannot even turn the volume up then how could it be possible for our products to steal your input records and trying to upload those to remote server in the system background?

I have no idea wtf these guys are doing with their products but if it does make you feel uncomfortable that our keyboard engraved with the same word "Made in Shenzhen", I am glad to issue you a refund anytime at your convenience.

Next GB would probably be Matrix MONA, another TKL custom with none-plate and switchable top frame design.

You're right, I didn't even think of this. The developer I am just doesn't see the point of keeping the firmware source code closed. Sorry if that sounded harsh, that was definitely not the goal. :)
