I don't recall seeing anything about facebook, I just used a kickstarter login.

I'd never noticed until the campaign the different (deeper bowl) shape to the top of the J and F keys. Something I forgot to ask about on the chat yesterday was the other locator key, numeric pad '5' key, will it have the raised bump or nipple as part of the initial goal, or as a stretch goal or is it considered to not be worth doing?

Hi IanP,

Yes indeed numerical keycaps "5" does have the raised bump, and this is available as within regular campaign Goal

Thanks Phil. It's looking very likely that all existing stretch goals will be reached but if it falls too short for the depressed J/F key mold, will the standard key mold for that row be used for the J and F keys or will the raised bump 5 key mold be used for them?

Hi Guys,

New updates on the campaign for the week end so please go ahead and have a look at them:

Latest campaign update:
  • Campaign has reached 60% of goal in less than 10 Days
  • It is now possible to chose a Dual Colored Layout keyboard from the Regular colors chart => Check the Simulator
  • A new perk is available:Keycaps Remover Tool
  • We've started getting new photos of cases production (at last!), these will be published as soon as we've received videos as well.

Head to the campaign page to see the latest changes.
Please don't forget that all pledges you see are NOT in USD.

Thank you for your support.

We need ALL of you guys. Even with 1 Keycap set you'll help the campaign to manufacture new molds for Amiga Keycaps.

Cheers.

There seem to be a bug with the regular keycap colors. In many of the combinations, the light grey and grey regular keycap colors are switched around, except if I choose light grey or grey special keycap colors.

Is this only possible on the "Personalized Dual colored Keycaps Set" ?
Getting two keycaps sets in different colors is much cheaper (which is what I'll probably end up doing).

PERSONALIZED Dual colored Keycaps Set

-> You chose the colors from PANTONE CHART for a very UNIQUE Keycaps set.

DUAL COLORED Keycaps Set
-> You chose the colors for our 12 colors regular chart like the Simulator does.


Personalized colors using Pantone Chart is way more expensive to manufacture (Finding the right mixing in colours, only 1x Keycaps set to manufacture etc..)

See the description:
Each colors has to be selected from within Pantone Color chart:

I fail to see where is the pledge for this option?
Or do we just pledge normally and wait for campaign to end to choose one or dual colors??
You have a pledge for Personalized SINGLE color keycaps and one for Personalized DUAL color keycaps, but you don;t have a pledge for Dual color keycaps (non-personalized).

Please advise, so I can make the right pledge.

Hi Akira,

Thank you for your message.

Indeed it may not be obvious and we're going to update the Q&A section to address that.


Please see explanations below and sorry for this to be long.
Do not hesitate to ask any more question if you need more precisions.

Thank you Akira, and to all EAB Amigans as well, for your awesome support!

Cheers,
Phil

"Both" meaning is has to be the same colour for regular & special or can they be different for this (non-personalized) pledge?

- Wording has been updated to avoid misunderstanding.
- Single/Dual/Triple/Quadruple rewards colors has to be chosen FROM campaign Color chart.
- Personalized colors are chosen from Pantone color chart for a truly unique keyboard.
- Please have a look to "How to chose colors Or Keyboard Layout" section on the KS page as well as in REWARDS details on the right side of page.

Thank you for your support.
Cheers

But it's any two from the list, right?
Just quadruple checking. This makes me quite happy. What changed that what once you said was impossible is now possible?

Now it's very hard to choose which two I want

Also I realize the keyboard cases are not out yet, how long will the keycaps take from campaign end to delivery (approximately, guessing based on your experience with the cases).

Thanks so much for making these.

Great to see this happening! I just backed for 3 sets of keys - one to match my black Kickstarter case, one for the A4000 and a final set which will probably go into pimping up the A600.

I'm having a lot of fun with the simulator. I'm not sure how accurate the colours are - in some cases, the keys appear a little lighter than the matching case, see pink on pink or grey on grey. Maybe having multiple angles to choose from would give a better idea of the final result, like some of the nice renders elsewhere on the site? Just a nice-to-have of course - the simulator alone was a welcome surprise.
