I need some help

Someone on here told me that my Model F77 doesn't have a function key row but I just help down function key and pressed number 5 and it activated F5. I specifically bought this keyboard because I was told it didn't have a function row but actually it DOES.

Fuck you /g/ why would you do this to me.

>> No.61295334

Does anyone have any idea whether Realforce 55g TKL keyboards will ever be available anywhere but eBay ever again? EliteKeyboards sits has said that stock was supposed to be arriving in "April/May 2017" for months and they still haven't gotten SHIET.

>> No.61295339

Ah, I think I see the problem here. You see, you actually pressed a number key - except that by also pressing a modifier, you changed layers, making F5 come out.

So your keyboard does not, in fact, have a function row, and there's no need to worry.

>> No.61295351

If I make a single switch keyboard that can send any keycode a fullsize keyboard can by counting how many seconds it's held down for, is that a fullsize keyboard?

>> No.61295361

If it didn't have a function key row it wouldn't have actuated F5. You screwed me anon.

>> No.61295367

Apparently it will have all the keys (not just the one), but still won't be fullsize. It's obvious dude.

>> No.61295390

You are a dumb piece of shit that is incapable of reading. I stated you'd need a 60% minimum with two layers to get the functionality of a 100% but continue samefagging like the autistic cunt you are.

Reported for being underage.

>> No.61295406

That's where you're wrong. Almost no keyboard has, e.g., a * key - instead, to make a * come out, you press a modifier and then the 8 key.
Same situation here - you only have a number row, and no function rows, but you can change what keys your number row sends. In fact, since it's a fully programmable keyboard, you could make the number row send any scancode you want! It's a very useful number row, you see?

>> No.61295426

So what you're saying is, I do indeed have a function key row! Awesome.

>> No.61295434

hot damn what keyboard is that

>> No.61295444

It's the glorious IBM Model F 77 key keyboard. It has a rwo in one number row which also couples as a function key row thanks to keyboard layers!

It's quite remarkable.

>> No.61295471

Uh could you please explain why, exactly, a 60% with two layers? So for instance a Plank can't have the functionality of a fullsize? I don't follow.

Also, a VERY KEY word you said is that a 60% with two layers can have the FUNCTIONALITY of a fullsize. It won't BE a fullsize. Similarly, by mapping function keys to a non-primary layer you can have the FUNCTIONALITY of an F-row. You won't actually HAVE an F-row, and the keys which have F functionality on the secondary layers WON'T actually BE F-keys.

Ducky One keyboards have a steel plate to prevent flexing since the case is made of plastic, and the keycaps are nice and thicc dye-sub PBT. How cheap do you want to go? Cause you can get something like a used model M for 40-50 bucks which will blow almost any modern keyboard out of the water with its build quality.

I'm okay with going for the Ducky One, I was just asking if I can get something as decent without the ARM processor at a lower price.
Since I don't need all those "features", it would be a waste to pay for them if I don't have to.

Finally got my first Ducky keyboard. Got it for $169 canadian yen or about $130USD. Not bad for an RGB keyboard with stock PBT keycaps.

>> No.61299972

If I wanted to spend more like $300 Canadian I could definitely get something better from the US somewhere but it's a pain in the ass and you can get a nasty surprise on the duty, shipping and tax compared to buying from Canadian stores, and a much bigger hassle if you need to return.

I'm been using a ducky shine 3 TKL with browns for about a year, was my first experience with mechs, I don't mind them but I think I would like reds from what I read about them.. hard to know until you actually use them for a while and get used to them though, I don't think I would even be able to tell from a switch tester and there's nowhere locally here to try them so I figure the vengeance is a fairly cheap way to give reds a try and if I hate it I could probably even sell it locally for the 90 bucks it's on sale for now.

Looking for a cheap backlit mechanical keyboard (red or brown switches).
I'm looking at these two right now:



Which would /g/ prefer?
Or is there a better option in that price range altogether?

>> No.61311096

Prime day starts in a couple hours. Any deals you guys are waiting for. I hope the magicforces with gaterons go on sale again cause I need a small 60-65% keyboard for 40 bucks. I know massdrop has them, but I'm not waiting till october to get them.

>> No.61311691

I'm doing a test fit before I solder all the switches into my custom board.
For some reason, my stabilized keys are taller than the rest of my keys. Anyone know what gives? I'm using DSA keycaps if that helps.

>> No.61311719

that is indeed strange, DSA should be more or less uniform. Lets have more info about the board, chasis, caps, etc.

>> No.61311764

Are these DSA keycaps from pmk/SP

>> No.61311803

make sure you're mounting them correctly

nice keyboard, too bad you're a fuck

>> No.61311833

(poster above you)
my understanding is SP keycaps are the defacto standard and should be expected to have uniform height, idk if this is the same with pmk, have you had experience?

I just realized I bought plate mount stabilizers and was putting them on the PCB

>> No.61311847

not sure what you mean. like why don't I have dope WASD keys? I don't play any games my man, I just type code and cry into my xanga.

>> No.61311865

ah yeah, depending on the type of board and stabilizer they will not be level.

>> No.61311909

Tesoro products is good?
Or I need to choose anithing else?

>> No.61311923

Actually just checked the pictures.
I ordered plate mount but I think I got pcb mount.
They don't have the sort of box shape around the cherry mount like in the pictures

Well, these are the parts I bought

Anyone thinking about the whitefox kickstarter or is it just a meme? I've wanted one since I first saw them, and now they are coming back. I'm not too sure about the new funky switches, although I do want to go back to linear.

Thing is though, I've also been wanting both function and arrow keys. Currently have a 60% which is fine, but I miss the arrow and function keys more than I expected. Whitefox has arrow keys, but no function keys.

What do you guys think? What are some good 75% keyboards I could look at instead?

Just finished soldering my first keyboard, holy shit I can't solder at all. Thankfully every key works seemingly enough.
I probably wasn't pushing them onto the keyswitches hard enough. I rebuilt the keyboard and now they're fine.

>> No.61314112


something i've found helpful is to have a big flat rectangle of Styrofoam lying around. I can press whatever I'm soldering down into it while I put pressure on the PCB. helping hands clips are nice too but not as nice for stuff down flat.
