Hey, is anyone still using the old Max Falcon-8? I stucked during the programming process. How to simulate a key like LCtr, Space etc.? Instead of getting one action for each activation, I want to press and hold a key to get unlimited activations or at least for 10sec. Can’t figure out how to do this. Who can help me? I’m really grateful for any help.

I'm really late to the party, but I've written a CLI-based firmware programmer for this keyboard:
https://github.com/dshahbaz/myfalcon
It works by defining a layout in text format (example: https://github.com/dshahbaz/myfalcon/blob/master/firmware/examples/max_falcon8_test.textpb)
Works on linux, osx. (There's a windows build as well, but I don't have a windows machine to test it on.)

Having a little difficulty with the programming side of this - can't seem to have it save my key strokes. Shows up on the programming piece, but when I remove the jumper and hit reset, it continues to use the build in media settings? Anybody else have this issue and figure out how to change it?

Arrived safe n sound in Canada. Put it together tonight. No problems, nice quality, even took a nice coat of flat-black spray-paint like a champ and fits with all my other keyboards. Make sure you follow the directions to use the new firmware.bin in the v2.1 Instructions.
Not sure that I like the complicated programming system, but I have other macros available to me on other boards, so this is primarily a gaming pad, reading, and lock-station setup. Very handy if you have a 40 or some 60% boards for your main input device.

Are there non-video programming instructions for this anywhere online?

The programming tool on the Max Keyboard website has a text FAQ. You pretty much need to use it anyway, so instructions are included. The firmware has to be upgraded first, as our PCBs are the old Ver 1.0. All instructions are in the text file.
Watch the video if you want to learn to do the multi-key macros, though, it's a bit trickier.
Also, make sure you are using the "Max Falcon 8 V 2.1" utility, not the RGB one.

Annnnd I'm officially addicted to mechanical keyboards... *orders some fancy keycaps from ebay, sad they will likely arrive just before the actual Falcon-8 does*

Sorry to resurrect this, but is there any chance you still have one? I would like a second one for home. Thanks.
