No, I said early on the next HADapter kit will be smaller and more "Essential"
The whole HAD-to-ANSI idea was great but I don't think we need another 150 of them out there.
Many of the non-EU participants might be willing to sell these caps from their HADapter Round 1 kits?

Does GMK have A-profile moulds for 1.25u keys? That would be amazing!
Could you also include two 2.25u and two 2.75u spacebars into the Split kit?

FaceU 60%

Too many switches, too little time (and money).

Poker has 1xFN and 1xPN, hard to tell them apart from the mockup
Nuum wrote:Does GMK have A-profile moulds for 1.25u keys? That would be amazing!

I will ask them, there's a high chance these caps are dropped! So far this is just a mockup
Nuum wrote:Could you also include two 2.25u and two 2.75u spacebars into the Split kit?

No, you will have to get two kits. The supported split layouts are 2x2u or 1x2.25u + 1x2.75u


Damn I forgot the 4u ... PENDING!!!

What about a R1 "X" escape key? or an icon Tab key?

Edit: My ideal key cap set is coming and the end of a very long search is ending?.

Got a chance to talk this through with GMK.

Here's what we got.

Diamond Kit:
Row5 1.25u mods are still impossible to make. GMK is looking into the costs for new profiles, it's a whole different game than new legends.
All other keys are either existing or will be SPONSORED BY GMK

HADapter II:
Win95/98 is not possible as a doubleshot mold. I heard it myself now. I feel empty on the inside but will use Win10 doubleshot instead
At least the PN Modifier will be made by GMK for us at their own cost!

Split/Spacebar kit:
Stay strong kbdfr. There is no 4u Space Bar mold. At least none they are aware of ...
Same as the 1.25u R5 mold, this might be a possibility in the future.

Wodan, please include ainsi enter and left shift. This is a great kit for making custom keyboards. I think we need more of these, only 2 keycaps ;)

T0mb3ry over at GH said the following regarding Yuri GB: "By the way Yuri will introduce 2u spacebar which will be included into planck/ergodox kit. Also there is possibility that the 2u "0 Ins" key on numpad may get the shape of a spacebar."

Is there a chance that the 2U spacebars in this buy would also be convex in shape?

Indeed, this is a big step for GMK. I would love to include the spacebar 2u keys, no doubt. Gotta check when they will be available.

Would be a shame to miss them by a few weeks

I think the GB could gets in sync with 2u space-bar availability deadline.

Summary: All keys in the sets will be kept; but, 1.25u diamonds in A profile and winkeys will be get a Win10 logo. Right?

Yes. Also the 4u space bar will remain a dream.

Great!

I prefer icons only; but, it is your call. I will be in anyway. Your sets will make any beige set to fit most layouts. Now the classic beige OG may reign supreme.

Not going handbag again. Would you rather like the ISO-DE arrow?

Win95 is off the table, it cannot be done as doubleshot ...
Wouldn't want to add extra keys, people can always get diamonds to add fancy :)

So the classic winkeys on the GMK Hydro are not double shot? I've never read any info about them being padprinted.

The arrow rocks, it is the most graphically sound, clean and elegant icon for caps lock.

I like the ISO capslock arrow as well. I usually use either that or regular text instead of the handbag, if I can.
Although I'm probably only in for a diamond set this time.

Wodan I have a small question about the R2 Hadapter kit, can you confirm that both the Capslock and 1.75u Shifts will have Icon only and no text? All the modifiers from R1 are Icon only which I much prefer, much cleaner look!

Aside from that, all the kits are fantastic and I'm in for at least one of each kit.

P/S: what are 4u spacebars used for? Seems kinda niche, no?
