I just received an email a few minutes ago from Stone Age Gamer.  They said that that Krikzz is planning to ship the initial order of GBA EDs out to SAG this week.  That means SAG is one step closing to shipping out their pre-orders.   ;D

some of them.  most will be a week or longer later.

Is it possible for Krikzz to ship the PCB with chips/resistors at a discount? I'd gladly solder the parts on myself. This question goes for all of their products.

Possible yes, probable no.
Can you imagine the support nightmare that it's going to be if KRIKzz would sell DIY kits?
SMD components with such a fine pitch require professional equipment and most people simply do not have it or when they do they lack the experience necessary, hence it is not gonna be "a product" for KRIKzz to sell DIY.
Under the table if he wants to make a favor to one of his friends I'm pretty sure he could send him a DIY kit.

I know that you think you can "do it yourself" but even if that was true because you may have all the professional equipment needed and required experience I don't think KRIKzz would undertake such endeavor ... simply too risky.

EDIT: he used to allow (and still does I believe) a level of DIY wrt N64 CIC and SNES DSP1 and those are big thru hole chips and there were horror stories of people lifting the pads, destroying the chips etc...etc....etc....

That's why I said "one step closer."  ;)

And yes, I realize that I actually typed "closing," but you know what I mean.
Maybe, just once, someone will call me "sir" without adding, "you're making a scene."

Are there any plans on enabling HTTPS on the store? I'd like to order, but not with my credit card information being unencrypted. If it's because of having to buy a SSL certificate, you can get a free one with Let's Encrypt

at least the payment service encrypts via https what is transfered unencrypted is the address/password/account-name/order/forum.
but you are right, there is no reason to stay unencrypted in 2016.
Beside Lest's Encrypt there is StartEncrypt available for free, too.

I hope Krikzz sees this and implements HTTPS soon. It's better to be proactive than reactive.

Yeah I opened a thread about it:

http://krikzz.com/forum/index.php?topic=5330.0

EDIT: funny part I ordered from SAG and it turned out to be 1$ cheaper when including postage, yeah I'll likely wait longer .... I'm in no hurry .... if the rumors are correct this cards uses the ICEwhatever FPGA (like the TEDv2) which is not field updateable (but I may be wrong) ... let's hope nothing glaring comes up that can't be fix with an OS update.

July 15th-August 15th

And no, we shouldn't get off that paranoia. It's common sense by now that shit like this be secured through HTTPS. Man-in-the-Middle attacks are more common than you think.

Ordered!

It says "Payment error" but also "On backorder (paid)". Guess I'll have to see if the payment actually went through. Kinda wish Paypal was an option :/

How do you know yours shipped? Was there a notification or just by looking at your order status? I ordered on the 4th and it just says payment accepted. Mine should ship sometime in the next 24 days.

Does an email with shipping confirmation ("Your odred has been shipped") count?

I would say that counts. I was mostly wondering how I would know when the cart had shipped. Looks like I'm hoping for an email.

Yesterday I received another confirmation mail, although I already had one.
I guess, the first one was incorrect. The second confirmation had also the trackung number, which was absent in the first mail.

08/03/2016    Shipped
07/20/2016    Payment accepted
07/20/2016    Shipped
07/06/2016    Payment accepted

I ordered it on the release day and never got any confirmation mail. On the other hand, I did not get it the last time either.
