Yes, I believe he made this change a couple of boards ago. I have the board he first made this change to and the smd LED's will shine either through the top of the shell or the front depending where the holes are made in your shell and of course providing a bracket isn't blocking the lights. I don't have the very latest one of his boards in my hands but if its like the one you pictured in the first photo then I believe its still the same.TechnoMario wrote: ↑Sat Oct 13, 2018 8:05 pmHi HoolyHoo! I ordered a screen bracket from you months ago when I first got in on the recent Circuit Sword group buy. It seems that Kite changed the status LED's on this new revision and now the [SMD] LED's shine out toward the front of the case rather than attaching through-hole LED's and having them shine out the top.
Your screen brackets block the newer SMD LED's and I'm curious if you plan on offering a new design to allow those LED's to shine through. It would require a notch in the other top corner of the bracket, similar to what you have on the power switch side. Kubino has made accommodating cuts for people on his pre-modified cases to support this. Borrowing some pics from other posts for examples below. I hadn't seen any other mention of this here, yet. If its in the works, I may hold out on the project until it becomes available... otherwise I will likely use my dremel to modify it or drill holes like the other user below.
If you ordered one of my PSP brackets then there are holes already in the bracket to allow the led's to shine through the front of the shell if you made holes there similar to the ones in your posted photo. I have not applied this to any of the other brackets but I can do so if there is interest in that. If you have one of my brackets without the led holes then it can be easily modified by carefully drilling some holes on the top. Let me know if I can try to be of any further help.
