UPDATE - April 11 2019:

Demo mockups uploaded...



















UPDATE - April 05 2019:

Hello everybody,

It's not a good news that SP decided to raise the cost for the new legends up to $150 each.

The reply was "production found that they can make most of these new legends work, though there might need to be some slight production tweaks done to make it moldable. All the images are very detailed and some have fine dots (some of which on the map images might not mold). These would all really be subject to the $150 charge as all are going to need new grids and quite a bit of work on our end to run smoothly."

With this unexpected finance issues, I will have to change the kits quite a bit. Some new legends remain, the others need swapping back to the Text ver. that I have already made in 88Commando GB.

   The kits will be re-distributed as follows:

1/ Base kit
         



          2/ Numpad kit

It's been so long. Today I have a new interest check which I have been waiting for years to post.

Please submit this form here to help me complete this IC => https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfFkPsmPiQDxJlu1D1Jd78D1Raiz1HzzThIW6zYK208ZJGPNQ/viewform
Or HERE for easier clicking.


Greatly thanks to the dear participants and benefactors of my previous SA Valentine and 88 Commando, I was able to have more than 150 military-themed legends specially made for the 88 Commando keyset alone.
Please look at this thread for the detail => https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=84601.0
The 88 Commando keyset is now currently in production. There should be real pictures of the keyset available before the end of this November. And because the waiting is sooo boring so I decided to post this IC up.



Now please have a look at these:


1/ Base kit




2/ Numpad kit




3/ Upgrade kit 1




4/ Upgrade kit 2




5/ FPS kit




6/ Text mods kit




7/ Light icon mods kit




8/ Mighty Cross kit




9/ Ortho kit




10/ VN Fighter kit






Some clumsy renders I made








Some old renders with old legends which had been replaced
















The core idea for this set is the Commando keyset ft. its exclusive icon mods to have a more refined and cleaner look. And to have the first SP's SA keyset using all new legends I believe so!
I'm still finalizing this set so nothing is really set in stone yet. No pricing yet but soon!
My priority at this moment is the 88 Commando keyset. The GB for this Commando 2020, hopefully, might go live after I have the shipping notification from SP for the 88 Commando keyset.

Anyway, thank you very much for your interest and please help me by filling this form HERE.

And yes please, some input below if you don't mind!

There are people selling the kits! I'm still collecting their requests now. You might see a form at the end of the 88 Commando thread for the purpose.

A set this boot is sorely missing the v6 mustang at 26% APR.

That said, looks nice overall, glws.

I really like the idea of this but the implementation feels a little too "on the nose". It seems like it could be militaristic without using actual army font and army-themed novelties.

Of course my man. Was kinda upset at myself for not knowing 88 Commando earlier, but Commando 2020 with icon mods and much better color theme in my opinion is just miles ahead. Can't wait to join, especially for SA :)). Any timeline?

Hmmm right now I'm not sure yet but let's say about 2-3 months from now maybe.
And to me both sets are equally great!

OP is as true to original here on geek hack as they come.  Icon based modifiers that complement the set as a whole has always been the style that I've seen from Commando, Valentine, and this latest design.  Those interested take note, OP is a perfectionist and will work to get the set right to his style and his vision.  I only wish I had bought in on Valentine but at the time pink was very much ahead of its time as most keyboards were very much black, gray, silver, red, and only exclusive boards came in unique colors like pink, green, purple, and others. 

My only comment or suggestion would be to make this set what you want of it OP.  If there is a way that Commando23 and Commando2020 can complement and be interchangeable with alphas or modifiers, then that would further make your buyers sets original and in a way reward your buyers with an even more unique set purchase. 

In terms of compatibility, sets that help ensure compatibility with the westerners love for 60/65/75/87 layouts would be ideal but if your vision is 84/87/104/108 then so it should be.

Then there should be a keyset using this colorway with normal font and maybe some chosen icon mods to satisfy those who want simple military keyset. Well noted with thanks!

I got your point. It might be a real tough challenge to make something in the Commando 2020 set that can complement and interchangeable with the 23 Commando set. They are different almost entirely: from the colors, the profile (23 Commando is in 1-2-3-3-3-4 row profile), the finishing (matte vs semi-matte), to the font used for alphas and text mods. Right now I can only think of some icon mods, but it's still far from a true complement kit... If you have any specific idea, don't mind telling me please!

And your kind words truly help me much! Many thanks!!

This is reminding me of Commando Behind Enemy Lines. It brings a tear to my eye. I'll probably join because I'm an emotional ****.

Come, come. Don't be shy. The games were my childhood as well. Simply masterpieces. And of course it's one of the reason for this keyset.
Lately there's a game has similar gameplay called Shadow Tactics with Old Japan samurai & ninja theme, but I still miss the Commando series.

Wow wow wow, hold on there for a second... why haven't I heard about this before. I guess I'm too old to follow any gaming news anymore.

But yeah, this is looking great. And it has great reviews. I'll play the **** out of this game for sure. Desperados and Robin Hood were good hommages to Commado series, but those are old games.

Anyway, speaking of your keyset. Maybe you should try something new and make it in tough PBT, like a real army men would do. Nowdays, there are options to do that. SP is offering their R3 SA in PBT, and then there is a new KAT profile too. Your legends are mostly dark color on green, so it can be dye-subbed.

Also, you sholud have some keys that pay tribute to original Commado series. Some icons or symbols that evoke nostalgia.

My... those games were on top of my list as well. Such good memories! Not many games left such impact on me like those.
Please take your time and enjoy the Shadow Tactics game in its Hardcore difficulty... It's a very good game indeed.
And you know what, there's more news that you might want to hear
->

And, sir, you really see through my mind. The PBT availability for SA keyset was what I have always been asking SP since 2013 till recently. Good news I got from them was there must be new tooling for PBT SA that will be fully sculptured and sublimate-able and it might come out at the end of August 2018. But no other news since then. SP must be too busy with their schedule. Other profiles might be good idea, I will consider it more seriously.
Besides, an ArmyMen kit... Wow...

Paying tribute to the Commandos series is great. Do you have any suggestions?

Rest assured I'll buy that game. Not sure about "Hardcore" mode though. "Normal" would probably be interesting enough.

Haha, you gotta be ****king kidding me. This is the best news I've heard in a long time!

And, BTW, after watching that video, I've made a little research and guess what I found out:

German developer Kalypso bought complete Commandos IP from Pyro in July this year. They are having big plans with the franchise, and already promised to make remasters, and then make completely new Commandos game.

Oh my, what a great time to be alive.

Although, to be honest, first two parts of the series are hand drawn, and I don't think anything can be done to remaster it, but we'll see. Maybe widescreen mod and few tweaks here and there.

You can read SA Glow thread for more information. He's having similar troubles to yours. I think molds for SA R3 are nearly completed, maybe spacebar is still worked on.

Yeah, maybe it's not a bad idea to ask zfrontier are they able to do it. Although, to be honest, it is a little risky. Not a lot of keysets were made in KAT profile, and that one that was made had problems with warped spacebars.

Uhhh... I can't throw the idea just like that. I would have to think about it. But maybe the most recognizable symbol about that game is green beret hat, so it can be used as a winkey for example... there are a lot other ideas too.

Joking aside, I was too naive and dumb before running the SA Valentine and 88 Commando. I hope some lessons learned there could help me organize this better.
Should I rename it to Commando 2024 just in case? NO!

that dark numeric row render is really nice. the render uses black font for the f-keys but that hasn't been mocked as one of the kits. i think i like black font on green keys for f-row over white font on green keys. and the yellow/gold font is a great add-on.

Aaand, more clumsy render...

Show Image


that dark numeric row render is really nice. the render uses black font for the f-keys but that hasn't been mocked as one of the kits. i think i like black font on green keys for f-row over white font on green keys. and the yellow/gold font is a great add-on.

Thanks for the comment!
There are probably few more kits coming, and I'm collecting people thoughts to provide what's necessary.

Don't forget submitting the form HERE, it would help much!


Haha all good! Commando 2020 has a great ring to it

Thanks!!

I like the mockup pics. I will most likely join 2020ís gb when it occurs. I recall you feel you are more prepared if this becomes a gb. W/ that said, what do you think the estimated turnaround aka shipment for it will be. W/ SPís long backlog of SA sets, have you considered working with MAXKEYS? Just asking b/c they fixed their font issue, their SA sets are great quality, & their production turnaround is quicker. Also, I have an off topic question, do you have any future plans for Commando in DSA or XDA profile?

Shipment (from SP to me) will take around one year from the moment I pay SP for the order, if nothing happens.

Talking about better preparation for this GB, I did learn to make the vector files (for new legends) myself so if there's any issues with those I could fix immediately. Compatible issues of vector files was the main reason for 88 Commando's delay. This time I will make it right from the beginning and there should be only minor adjustments needed to be done if there's any.
Social life is better than ever and I have much more free time for the mechkey things. Things will be done faster.
Now I have to think about how to provide the kits so that I could handle it with lesser possibly problems.

DSA is an interesting profile. I did one GB in DSA family before (for the Valentine keyset) and the logistics for it was so much easier than for the SA Valentine. DSA Commando? It's possible!

I have no plans of running GBs with MAXKEYS currently. It's really good to know they're improving the quality of their products. I can have more options for future projects, it's great.

Thanks, for the response, Iíd be in for a DSA set if you decided to run one. Believe DSA sets are produced quicker too. Either way, I like your sets & look forward to what you have next.

9/ Ortho kit
Show Image


Good day, just noticed, I am a 40% MKB user; however, I donít use an ortho mkb; w/ that said, is there a way the ortho kit can be offered as a universal 40% kit or just offer a separate 40% kit. That way, all 40% mkb users (jd40, minivan, etc) can buy it as opposed to just a specific ortho kit?

A set this boot is sorely missing the v6 mustang at 26% APR.

That said, looks nice overall, glws.

Thanks!! Though I don't get the first line.

Typically those coming back from service usually pick up a brand new sports car at a high interest rate.

I can vouch, as 3 of my friends did that, and are sorely regretting it.

Hi everybody, It's me again.
Many thanks for completing the IC form so that I can make adjustments to the kits. SP needs the time to check the new legends for this keyset and just got back to me recently.

It's not a good news that SP decided to raise the cost for the new legends up to $150 each.

The reply was "production found that they can make most of these new legends work, though there might need to be some slight production tweaks done to make it moldable. All the images are very detailed and some have fine dots (some of which on the map images might not mold). These would all really be subject to the $150 charge as all are going to need new grids and quite a bit of work on our end to run smoothly."

With this unexpected finance issues, I will have to change the kits quite a bit. Some new legends remain, the others need swapping back to the Text ver. that I have already made in 88Commando GB.

   The kits will be re-distributed as follows:

          1/ Base kit
         



          2/ Numpad kit
         



          3/ Upgrade kit 01
         



          4/ Upgrade kit 02
         



          5/ Upgrade kit 03
         



          6/ FPS Gamer kit
         



          7/ Mighty Cross kit
         



          8/ Space kit
         


And I still need more comments from you guys to complete this IC. Feel free to complete the IC form!
Thank you!
