Thanks! I've found your old thread where you used the PC Mitsumi keyboard with C128 keycaps. So these were the 'recessed' wedge Amiga style stems? I was planning to fix some of my big box Amiga keyboards (and apparently I have only the old style ones) with the new caps but I guess I will need to find the compatible stems also and that PC keyboard looks like the cheapest option.

Yeh, the c128 keyboard actually has both styles of stem. The majority of the keys are with the recess, but some in the top row have the big box style flat top stems.

Almost missed this "again" did my pledge for a QUADRUPLE (4x Keycaps Set)

Wonder how many backers it will receive in the end? I am all ready nr 1093.

Also a good time to give back the CDTV keys to its original keyboard

Just a quick response to your questions;

- I do not see (for now that is) any keycaps being shipped to resellers/partners
- The issues are not issues. These are variances which have been addressed in Run #2
- Yes, 9/11 and JFK were an inside job
- Issues with keys? Please, let us know via email and we take care of it.
- Non-Commodore/Amiga font we considered but it looks odd and alienates most of us.
- The Carbon Case as well as the checkered flag are Hydro dipped cases.
- Hydrodip is permanent. Good look scratching that off (you need a blowtorch!)
- The CD32 case and keycaps are solid colors (no dip)

Hope this helps :-)

I recommend a movie called JFK to 9/11 - Everything is a rich mans trick. Its 3h:27m long. Incredible research.

I pledged for some new keycaps, although I haven't got any use for them. Or so I thought! Turns out I forgot that I had pledged for a new a500 case after all. Because this morning I saw a mail about RMI v2 for a case color. And here I was all bummed that I hadn't pledged. I first checked if it was an April fools' joke. It wasn't. I'm so exited! What color to get? Hmmm. Difficult. Decisions, decisions.

Here’s a picture of mine. I assembled it last week and I think it looks absolutely stunning.

Edit: even if it is upside down on here!
Edit 2: fixed.

Thanks for the pic

I could not resist . I was tempted with a black-on-black setup or white case-black keys, but after seeing the CD32 Special Edition


Offtopic - but MiST's are great

So what are people buying? Are original the most popular then?
The CD32 version looks super, though those like me are torn between originality and modified. Any chance for a Poll?

I bought a Scoopex edition set to go with my case so I'm still waiting for that. Also bought an "original" in the hope it will fix the broken keyboard on my A600. If not it will go in my other A1200.

List exactly what options and what you want them to say and I'll turn into a poll for you.

Not sure how it would be possible to cover all options in a Pol as you can mix the Keys and Case Colours. Probably best to ask someone else but I was thinking

AS ORIGINAL
CD32 SPECIAL EDITION
ALL BLACK
ALL WHITE
ALL CLEAR
CLEAR CASE BLACK KEYS
OTHER

Just wondering if I'm going to be the only one going for originality as I can see the black and CD32 one been quite popular.

Bought a two colour keyset.
Special keys are orange and regular keys are light grey.

I hope it looks as good as I envisioned it.

I had to back the CD32 SE since it should look great on my TV desk right beside my CD32

So no one going for the clear case it seems, thought RGB lighting was all the rage these days!
