I'd work on switching around the keycaps and mapping this keyboard input to a virtual keyboard via drivers. I will try and think of something, this should be interesting.

EDIT: Found it! SharpKeys

So I took this first shot before I really did anything (photos from phone, at night, sorry for noise):

As you can see, this is a regular QWERTY layout.

Installed SharpKeys, and started mapping the letters from the QWERTY layout to the AZERTY layout.


Ended up with this as a good start:


Wrote to registry, logged off, logged in.

Switched some keys around.


Obviously, they aren't the same shape, and they don't fit in flush with the rest, so you might need a keycap set with AZERTY in mind. Try WASDKeyboards, it might be worth it, you'd get your own designs, laser-engraved, if you do not find a ready set or want to do a special set (awesome).

But, however, success:



Good luck with what you're looking for.

Hi guys! I plan to buy one for myself in a few weeks and I really can't decide which led color should I pick. I'm choosing between Green, Blue and White. Which do you guys think is good for dark surroundings? I always make a mistake when typing and playing in the dark. And also, I am currently using a Razer Arctosa which is linear and this will be my first mechanical keyboard. What switch should I pick since I want to have the same feel?

Any color would be better than typing in the dark. I guess white would be a good choice but you can't go wrong with any of the others really. As for the switches, if you mostly use the keyboard for typing, then blues would be a good choice. However, I would say browns are a good first switch as they have a slight tactile bump and are not too noisy.

I have purple. Looks more pink than purple imho.

Yup, more magenta like from the pics I've seen but that's the net for ya. Pretty easy on the eyes in the dark?

Update: My keyboard was picked, packed, and shipping label applied within an hour after ordering. Thank you TigerImports.net thumb.gif

Where would the best price for a Cherry Blue, any color backlit, Ducky Shine II be?

Looking for white LED ducky but they're not available -- why?

Anybody with a new Ducky II -- Do the LEDs stay on after reboot/resume?
