Thread Starter 
If I used a usb to ps/2 adapter, would that give me ps/2 functionality with n key rollover?

If and only if the keyboard specifically supports that.

Name the board and we can tell you, it does tend to be a bit of a selling point for a lot of the higher end mech boards

Basically, no.

The reason you can't get N-key rollover from a USB keyboard is because the standard scheme for signalling from a USB keyboard to a computer only lets the keyboard list six currently depressed keys at once. Some USB keyboards get around this by having a special custom signallng mode, and a custom driver on the computer.

Unless the company making that USB keyboard also makes a special USB to PS/2 adapter for it, though, that won't help - because a USB to PS/2 adapter would only know about how a standard USB keyboard works.

Leopold gets 18KRO on USB with a standard Microsoft HID driver.

Try a Cherry G80-8200 (aka MX8000): http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs70/i/20...aedrus2401.jpg

Cherry MX browns, 59 macro-able keys with macros stored on-board in NAND, NKRO, etc.

Make sure it's the PS/2 version. The USB version doesn't have NKRO and the macros are all software instead of hardware.


I'm using it as my primary keyboard.

*Twitch* So glad those colors are no longer the technology standard.
