 Sorry if I missed it, but are the plate files available anywhere? I'm thinking about getting one of these: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=98567.0

They're in the OP.  https://goo.gl/DXNwqL

I also want a titanium plate to match the titanium badge.

Looking to buy someone's spot if they don't want it anymore. Would prefer the HHKB version. Give me a PM.  :D

TWO round 1 PCBs have crapped out on me now. Have these issues been addressed at all for the round 2 PCBs? If so, I'll try to buy one aftermarket. If not, I hope people with Round 2 spots don't experience this same issue.
So far I have wasted a bunch of money and time on a non-functioning, pretty brick.

I had the same issues, two round one PCBs that eventually died. Messaged PlayKeyboardTW about it and he said they found the problem and have fixed it for round 2. I'd message him about your issues, he was very responsive and is including a replacement in my R2 order and may be able to help you out.

I'll do that. Thanks for the suggestion.
I bought all my CA66 stuff aftermarket, though, so I don't expect that they're obliged to do anything.

Just wanting to double check, but the new Bluetooth pcbs work in the v1 case, right?
Also, is there a way to purchase them right now or is just wait until they are stocked on the play keyboard website?
Thanks all.

They were available to purchase during the R2 group buy, but they've said there may be some extras available in their store after the R2 buy completes.

I understand if you customized the PCB in some way to make it possible for those 4 keys, but would I be able to add Kailh style hot swap sockets to rest of the board? Is it compatible?

No. The Kailh hotswap sockets require a special footprint with pads and cutouts in different places than a regular cherry footprint. If it's not there from the start it's not possible to add them later.

And it also means that you will need to limit the PCB into one layout only.

Hi guys.

As Chinese New Year is approaching. There are many vendors of other industries trying to finish their stuffs before Chinese New Year as we do.
So it's quite a mess in the factory right now.
By estimating the situation, we might able to finish all the works before the date.
But won't have time to do the packing after Chinese New Year holidays. :(

We sincerely apologize for this, and will be heading back to work as soon as holidays are over.

Thanks for understanding of all of you. :)

Well its a bummer to hear but I appreciate the transparency and your realistic outlook. If by some miracle it wraps up before then well great. Otherwise, hope you enjoy the holiday and well hear from you in the Chinese New Year!
