My converter can't change the basic capabilities of the keyboard, so an 'F' will have NKRO, but an 'M' will still only have 2KRO. The same is true for other PS/2 keyboards, and USB-only keyboards aren't supported by it.

We just say the worst case when saying what KRO something is - the M can output more for many combinations, but there are quite a few 3-key combos that don't work.

also there is currently no way to achieve nkro or at least 6 key on usb with the model m amiright?

Do you mean it only works on USB keyboards that have a controller that's PS/2 at it's heart and has been tweaked to USB? I'm not really sure what I'm talking about here, so please be gentle.
Then those sources are wrong.RougeRambo wrote:right very confused now lol, so many places online claim the model m to have full NKRO, but now i look some claim 2-4...
