Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

I don't know how IBM did it. The xwhatsit's calibration is not gonna work on the model F reproductions, because the always-pressed calibration pads give a much higher signal then real buttons. I don't know if the reproduction keyboards are different, or if the xwhatsit approach is flawed. I was thi...

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

QMK for the New Model F would be fantastic -- assuming that we won't have issues with the voltage threshold concerns that are occasionally brought up by users every now and then. If anyone is having issues on their board with finding a good voltage threshold, I would love to collect some data from ...

Re: G80-5000HAASL

Maybe now, when people google for the worth. But back then I picked up valuable keyboards for free to 50 euro. Picked up one 5000 for 15 euro, another for 30 euro or something. Model M's and Model F's for nothing or almost nothing. Sellers were glad to get rid of it for any price. And that's just th...

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

That one does register keys but far too many. I.e. if I type "t" it will output t plus another random character, sometimes two, sometimes capitalized or del or strange character (i.e. random scancode). I reverted to your original fix just to check and that one still works best. So there's still some...

P.S. Ellipse uses "updated firmware": https://www.modelfkeyboards.com/code/ Which should be the same I guess if it's based on the latest code (maybe Ellipse can elaborate). But the threshold level is compiled in there as well, I'm currently using this one with threshold 6: ibm_capsense_usb debounce ...

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

Thanks, that did the trick. Somehow ;) It still pressed keys but this time together with a key locker I could launch capsense and do an emergency halt and reflash. Then still lots of key pressed but a reboot did it.

P.S. On the smaller case the soft tinier screws are even a bigger problem... I got one now that's completely stuck, can't even move it with pliers. Since it's only one I could still rotate the bottom to get to the inners.

That makes Windows go berzerk like a million keys are pressed at once, and bricked the keyboard, as I can't even reflash it or reset it (Windows can't handle all the presses before loading capsense). I have no idea how I'm gonna fix this...

Re: A Smaller Xwhatsit

I found a temporary fix:

Use capsense to remap right control to another left control, then use autohotkey to map the freed right control as a hhkb Fn key.

Still hoping for a better fix.
