I'm trying to map Drop Shift LED to the correct bit masks in `led_instructions`. However, I'm getting a mismatch in the underglow LED count when compared to drop's web configurator In configurator I've counted: 4 edges LEDs 21 tops LEDs 8 right LEDs 23 bottom LEDs 8 left LEDs However in my tests using QMK (based of default_md keymap), I was able to map only 22 bottom LEDs (instead of 23) starting from right to left at id4/bit 6 until id4/bit 28. When I configure id4/bit 29 is activates the bottom left edge LED. What's id the correct underglow LED distribution? Is there any documentation with the correct LEDs mapping? It's also worth notting that the comments in https://github.com/Massdrop/qmk_firmware/blob/master/keyboards/massdrop/shift/keymaps/default_md/keymap.c#L288-L303 are unreliable. Don't appear to have been copied from another keyboard, as dropshift uses until id5, and underglow starts at id3 instead of id2.
I acquired a Massdrop ALT for free and knew upon connecting it that it would not show any signs of life. I had two other CRTL models that were dropped on my as well with non-responding keys. Upon investigating the CRTL model and removing the underside I noticed the area on the backside where the switch plugs in wash pressed in all the way. Once pushed it back into place and reconnected, the CTRL was fully functional. I have no knowledge or background on these keyboards and it was just simple poking around that resulted in success. Now, back to the ALT model being totally dead. Can anyone give me any idea of what the issue could be on this one? Seems to be clean all around from what I can tell or is it just a lost cause and nothing more than cap and switch parts at this juncture? I just like seeing if I can fix something that has a remote chance of seeing new life. Hope this is the right forum Thanks
I personal like the keyboards that the keys are more raised up and a little bit more thicker to press. I find myself missing keys and miss spelling words alot more, scince I;ve baught a new one. I sure hope that Im not the only one who feels this way. Also , was wondering if now a day do they make a computer keyboard that i would be interested in?
Hi all, I am using a DROP ALT with Macbook pro 14 inch with Monterey 12.0.1. The keyboard is plugged into a CalDigit TS3 plus thunderbolt hub and the computer is connected to the hub. Everytime after I unplug the computer from the hub and reconnect, the computer runs the keyboard assistant program asking to identify the type of keyboard. I was wondering if there is a way to aovid this? Thanks!
