Really looking forward to seeing this W11cE  :)

Are you doing anything with the left over D Pad and button wiring?
A mini 5 way switch using these wires would be good.

finland is a third tier country by microsoft and sony standards, you can be happy to have internet access there let alone digital cameras ;O ;O ;O


as for the mod id be fine with 3100 pesos aka 150€ if it includes the infamous surströmming version with a signature of w11ce! :)

Some ideas for YOUR gaming keyboard:

- Teensy slot with ball connectors. This would be a great Project on ins own that you can sell separatedly to developpers. You just buy the Teensy and you just inject the Teensy into the device. Not easy to do for sure.
- Left and right version that forms full keyboard if you have both. not sure if possible.
- if BT allow several dongles so you can use the keyboard on several machines. XIM, PC, etc.

Yeah me too but would be nice to see him start something of his own. As he is completely capable.

Yeah but you already have a good foundation to build off so why over complicate things to early little steps, just checked and i have one in boxed condition 0 modding done just light use, one i use on and off joystick mod only, a bare bones stripped to just all pcb's, and a razor one collecting dust.
Hotas is the key all buttons in positions easily reachable without having to re-position hand, you can load up a keyboard with as many cherries as you want but in the heat you will use only a very small percentage due to them being a little out of reach, so you keep your primary functions close, you really only need 3 rows of 4 to be in quick easy reach outside of that and its no longer Hotas as you have had to introduce another move its just human ergonomics.
I know Roads is going to cringe at this but i have often thought of using expensive pov hat switches not as joystick replacement but keys as with a 4 way hat switch placed at each finger would instantly give you 16 functions with one movement.

We will see in the future if I will make my own device. This mod also to practice some of the required things needed in a real own device. I have never gone this deep on circuits in the mods yet.

Are you doing anything with the left over D Pad and button wiring?
A mini 5 way switch using these wires would be good.
Believe me, I tried designing a dpad over the joystick, but there just isn't enough space for any kind of dpad.

Lol, yeah. After taking the pictures, thats what was on my mind too. I hate taking pictures in general, but maybe I need to try improve.

You mean you cant do your own without the N52te bottom plate and hand rest?

Hi great work. Please post links to where I can get the parts from.  Or if you want put a package together with a price and I can just buy from you that way you can save on your production of it. Add some in for your time.  You guys here at xim forum can be a real team of manufactures because you solve the problems people have and you listen to what we want.

I will post the links during this weekend. Meanwhile here is my own custom teensy LC board for replacing the main board:

Boots up and flashes nicely so far. Dont ask if you can buy these. You cant. I can share oshpark link and bom if someone thinks he can solder together something like this.

Added links for the parts. Please comment back if you ordered those. I made some small fixes to those after the first ones.
