So this appears to be a Battleship Clone.
I am trying to apply Soarers Converter to a Pro Micro Atmel MEGA32U4 / 16 Mhtz / 5v.
I have programmed the 32U4 with the following syntax using avrdude 5.1 and a Usbtiny avr programmer and a dedicated 5v/1a power supply for the M32U4:
avrdude -p m32u4 -c usbtiny -U flash:w:Soarer_at2usb_v1.12_atmega32u4_ProMicro_reset.hex

I cannot seem to get this keyboard to post any info. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance

Wait a second... do I need to take the pinouts to a DIN5 then PS/2 adapter then to the 32U4?

Since a DIN5-to-PS/2 adapter is only a electrical pass through and doesn't contain any logic it would only change the pins you need to use from the respective connector. Maybe your keyboard doesn't speak a protocol Soarers Converter understands?

Connector: Yeah thought as much. My thinking was the adapter would allow the system to hot plug properly.
Protocol: Well, does anyone have a HP C1401A #ABA(keycaps, design, overall look is very similar.)? If it works with any converter, please let me know. Not ready to give up on this just yet. :)

Are you treating that as PS/2? At that date I would expect HIL.

I may have flashed the incorrect file. Let me check when I get home thanks.
