Finding a keycap set for this fucker was impossible short of piecemealing one together... Which was what I ended up doing. Weird to type on as well because I'd never learned to properly keyboard. It's basically a split keyboard, without the split. But it's kind of a welcome experience... Don't regret getting, except for the difficulty of finding keycaps with legends, which were a requirement for me.
Hope everyone else had good luck with this board though.

I feel your pain, I don't have any patience to wait for a project to be 100% complete, but as I started to loose hope in finding something worth the money I came across the Big Bang ortholinear set. https://drop.com/talk/3464/mda-big-bang-ortholinear-keycap-set-in-stock I did however also pick up the Massdrop x MiTo XDA Canvas Custom Keycap Set. both very nice and no blank keys.

Is anyone else seeing terrible quality issues with the cuts on the plate? The rows don’t line up with each other and the tolerance is out of band for what the PCB can handle. Wtf?

A little farther along and yeah, there’s NO way those switches are going in.
What are my options here? How many people got plates that were misaligned? Can I get a new plate?

If I don't use the plate/case, would the PCB fit in a standard 60% case?

From what I gather on reddit, it would.

hi there mezastel, and everyone else
I luckily found this tutorial on youtube by tubromech that TOTALLY helped me understand the workflow just trying to find some time in my day to finally tackle my layout, excited to get it working

Is there anything like this but in a 104 key style. I really want a full size ortholinear but have yet to find one.

I have one of these - a grey ps/2 version which I bought from UKKeycaps a few years back and I love it. If you end up getting one and need any help programming it let me know. There is a system requirement though; you'll need a true 32bit operating system. I was able to get the scancodes for main media functions working which was about as complicated as it got. I'd recommend having a read of this topic over on Deskthority: https://deskthority.net/workshop-f7/programming-access-is-keypads-t8468.html
It just occurred to me I should clarify this point - you'll need a true 32bit operating system to program it, but once it's programmed you can use it on any operating system that will recognise a PS/2 keyboard

if anyone wants to customize this keyboard with QMK, I have added some of the steps I went through:

Is it me or is the underglow not bright? Perhaps I need to increase the brightness?

Here's an interesting link to someone building the 'AM' version of this board. May need to use Google Translate to understand it: http://kou014.hateblo.jp/entry/2017/12/21/213210

I like it but I still find the need for at least one dedicated function row.
