    Curious about something. If I want to mod my TE stick to a 6-button layout, opposed to 8, but i just want a solid color plexi, is there any reason to get a panel replacement over a simple plexi cover?

    I just did this, and the simple plexi works just great.

    Art, do you think it would be possible for you to make a top plate that would fit a TE sized metal plate flush inside with room to have some magnets to hold it in? Id like to have a set up where the top plate has something to hold onto to just pull the plate off to switch them out easily and then have all of the wires from the plate connected to one clip that can easily be disconnected for quickly changing between layouts. Im thinking of something like just the outer edge of the plexi top with sort of a dip underneath to support the metal plate and then line it with magnets to hold it in. Do you think something like this would be possible? My only real concern is that TE plates are too big for this sort of idea. Feel free to pm me if you want.

    I checked Art's site but didn't an answer to this. Does anyone know if on Art's templates, the button circles are where the outside edge of the button reaches, or is it the actual hole?

    Edit - Nevermind, I figured it out.

    When using art's plexiglass for the TE, will it be flush with the madcatz border? Or will it be slightly raised above the border? Just wondering if it'll be comfortable.

    raised... there's pics somewhere showing exactly how much

    I'm considering upgrading the case I have (from my SE to a TE if I can find one on the sly.) However, I'm digging the customization you can pull off with your case.

    I see you can strap down the PCB from the TE to the plexi, but I modded my SE to run w/ a TE Kitty. Have you heard from anyone who has a case of yours if they found a spot for the kitty or am I making a stink over nothing?

    |---edit---|

    Damn! The top panels of the case don't have a hole for the turbo panels of the Mad Catz sticks and I don't see an option for cutting one into the top panels. Has this been asked about before?

    Greetings. I'm hoping to get some information here. I am VERY interested in a TEK case from Arthong. I'm just wondering how study they are. I know that Art does awesome work. I've got plenty of plexis. But this is an entire plexi case. I can't help but think these things may crack with one small drop. How's everyone experience with these cases? Also, how much do they usually weigh and what are the dimensions? I couldn't find this information at tek-innovations.com. I did see something about adding weight to these? Any help you guys give will be much appreciated!

    I just got a B-series Tek-case (with the top reinforcement), and it feels very sturdy. I wouldn't feel very confident in dropping the stick from any significant height, but I wouldn't feel confident doing that with any other stick either. Accidental drops aside, the stick is surprisingly sturdy and I can play just as hard as I usually do without giving it a second thought. The top doesn't flex or budge an inch, and I feel like I'm in no danger of damaging it through normal use. That was my main concern when ordering the case, but I feel completely confident in it upon receiving it.

    As far as weight, I want to say it's somewhere around 3 pounds, but I could be remembering that wrong. I was also concerned about the weight of the stick, and was considering adding the weight panels, but opted not to so that I could have buttons on the side panels if I needed. In the end, the weight of the stick feels fine (I honestly don't like how heavy the TEs are, anyhow) and I have no problems with the stick sliding around while I play. The dimensions are roughly similar to a TE, maybe not quite as wide.

    That said, pictures:

    I know this is probably not the exact right place, but I saw Edgeman has a Sanwa AOU 2011 Ball top (on his awesome stick), and I am about to do my first ever custom job starting out with an original SFIV TE Fightstick. Would a AOU 2011 fit the stick which comes with the TE? And would a Semitsu Bubble top fit the Sanwa stick as well? Probably stupid questions but I don't want to waste money on the wrong stuff. Any advice greatly appreciated.

    Art I know you must be busy as hell but please read and answer my email I sent you a few days ago. I recently ordered a type B case and failed to realize my old mailing address was listed when checking out with paypal. I fixed the address on my paypal account after the fact but I am unsure of which address you will see when you goto ship my case. I'm getting nervous and don't want my case to be shipped to the wrong address. I know I am dumb. Please help!

    Hi! I was wondering if it would be okay for me to place my order now and have it on hold a couple weeks so I can snag the discount? I commissioned professionally done art (that was within the budget because of the discount) but it isn't complete yet. Normally this wouldn't be an issue but I'm ordering a hitbox and the layout may be incorporated into the design. Thanks!
    ?! break it.

    When you build a tek-case using the builder you can choose a variety of different configurations on that rear panel. You can choose between having one or two 24mm buttons on the left, one or two 24mm buttons on the right, a slot for a neutrik USB or RJ45 jack, or a slot in the center for a cable to stick out of.

    When I had mine built I decided on two 24mm buttons on the left and one on the right mostly because I couldn't find a vendor that had the neutrik USB jack and other things I need for the project and I wasn't about order just one part from an online vendor. . . So yeah, if you want the USB or RJ45 jack you'll have to provide your own and choose to have the jack hole cut in the panel.

    Hey quick question. On the site it says tek-cases are $48 now. Is this with the discount already applied or does this mean with the discount we're looking at like $39?

    Hey, will you do a template for the MadCatz Soul Calibur 5 TE stick?
