    The VP3 models do not have firmware updates available, sorry. The firmware listed is for the V3 and V3B models.

     

    The V3 and V3B can be flashed to the 2.5 firmware to allow for PS/2 support. I have not heard of the VP3 keyboards having issues with PS/2, but I'd have to do some testing to verify. Our VP3 keyboards are Vortex Poker 3 keyboards that we have applied our customization options to, in collaboration with Vortex.

    Yeah I have tested the VP3 that I have here with active and non active PS/2 converters on multiple computers and it does not work. I have tested older USB keyboards using these converters and the active converter does work for that not the Vp3.

    Thanks for the info, Michael. After some investigation here, it looks like keyboards with programmability do not work with PS/2 in general.

    I have one more test and I will let you know how that goes. Its an industrial grade USB to PS/2 converter, the best I could find. Technically it may not work but I am getting one anyway to test other keyboards but worth the try on the VP3. I will let you know in this thread after it arrives what the result was.

    The ROSE Uniport USB to PS/2 Converter works with the WASD VP3 61-Key Custom Mechanical Keyboard .
