If you know a bit of C (or any programming language, for that matter) and are able to read, you should figure it out in no time. There are guides about that sort of thing, and it isn't hard at all.

Thanks for introducing me to the Diverge. I think I'll go for the Diverge TM instead of the memeboards. It shouldn't be too difficult to make a wooden plate for the top and a steel plate for the bottom (to weigh it down), and the firmware is much easier to configure. The price is also a little bit lower, which is a bonus.

It's a shame that they aren't compatible with Matias switches, but I'll live with Zealios.

Huh, sounds like a shitty situation. If I were you I'd just suck up import costs, but I can understand that you'd want to avoid that with your first mech.

If you care about replacing your keycaps in the future, check if the cm has a standard bottom row and see if you find browns acceptable. Otherwise go with corsair.

CM is better in terms of build quality (unless it's a board with a non-standard bottom row, those cm boards suck ass). But at least in your case corsair has a better selection of switches. I'd probably go with the latter if I were in your situation. Though if you're going to go for browns anyway (I wouldn't) get the CM.

And those "speed" switches are marketing gimmick.

i want a keyboard

no media keys or other stupid shit
has a backlight
doesnt look fucking stupid
browns or blues for the switches

price doesnt matter. i would get a filco because they actually look normal but they arent backlit and im not spending the money on something like that just to have to deal with adding it myself

tell me how to waste my money

The PBT caps on the Ducky are dyesubbed right? You won't have to worry about fading legends if that's the case.

Get the Ducky.
