  • seebart (Wed, 04 May 2016 00:22:26 +0200) AFAIK it's not possible to "delete" wiki entries. I know it's possible to move them and obviously to edit them. Let me check, this may take some time...

I had just assumed that they would have used a 14KRO report because that would have made the most sense but I have not actually checked the report descriptor. (I would never buy one of those )KRKS wrote:Pretty sure it'll hit 2KRO on something, but it seems like the matrix is optimized for avoiding the known lockups so the testing needs to be extensive.It is important to distinguish between different revisions and variations of the keyboard.The thread you linked to is a couple years old. The only post about the BlackWidow on the first page refers to the 2010 "BlackWidow Ultimate" variation, which is already listed in the wiki as having 2KRO.If there is another post that I had missed, that is about a later variation then please do link to that specific post. (#<number> - "Permalink"). However, the last post in the thread is from September 2013 so no post could possibly refer to the 2014 or current revision.
  • KRKS (Sat, 23 Apr 2016 14:24:07 +0200) Razer_BlackWidowThe page claims that the Blackwidow is 14KRO, while the source only shows 14 keys pressed at the same time. As we know, (x)KRO is the amount of keys that you can press in every possible combination without locking up. However, the page is protected so I can't fix it. So while we're at it, can someone who actually knows what rollover is check the actual value for the Blackwidow? Pretty sure it'll hit 2KRO on something, but it seems like the matrix is optimized for avoiding the known lockups so the testing needs to be extensive.EDIT: misnamed(the method in the thread tests 3KRO/4KRO with caps and not NKRO), it confirms it fails on multiple Lshift+RShift+[letter] combinations, therefore it's 2KRO.
  • terrycherry (Thu, 21 Apr 2016 13:36:44 +0200) okay, I got that. I just take the name of the true color on the transparent greenish slider what I see.I classified the color near to green, closer to yellow myself. It can call Neon green; Green tea or Pale green color, that's what I see on that switch.
  • E3E (Mon, 18 Apr 2016 08:48:37 +0200) Oh no, the pot has been stirred again! SKCM Lime or SKCM Neon Green. I'm fine with either.It should be called "the Alps SKCM switch which cannot be named."

Of course, you can have the wiki redirect "SKCM Green" to whatever we choose to rename it. But rename it we must, I think. Lots of switches got renamed, including in the wiki, so why not this one?I didn't see this was a thread until now. I'm behind the Neon Green name as they really are a distinct color. I'll go ahead and claim naming rights as the discoverer and say that they should be called Neon Green.
  • jacobolus (Fri, 15 Apr 2016 08:21:15 +0200) #E1E6C4 can be seen circled in your pic from above:My color is the result of taking your pale #E1E6C4 and increasing the chroma in the CIECAM02 model, while keeping the same hue and lightness.Your color is J = 86.4, C = 15.1, h = 108.5. My color has the same lightness and hue, but a chroma of something like 60 or 65, I don’t remember precisely.Anyway, terrycherry, I really don’t understand why you’re so concerned about this. The color is clearly some kind of greenish yellow, similar to the color of some types of brewed green tea.
