    I'm liking the second CP with all the characters

    Thanks truck, that's actually the one i decided on. my side panels on the cabinet are going to be orange with the main cabinet being white. i will be using 6 orange buttons and 2 white for each player. the only thing now is deciding what color to make the outline of the buttons. in the pic above it is a shade of grey which i think looks good. but i'm open to suggestions that might look better. thanks again

    Yo that's going to be sick, like the color scheme for the Comic-Con edition TE, but they had two yellow instead of two white buttons. Can't wait to see pics when it's finished

    Maybe just create mockups of what orange, white, and maybe yellow borders would look like, and just decide which one looks best.

    Just got done messing around with what I want to do as far as Cabinet art is concerned. I have 2 final versions to choose from so tell me what you think of them. The marquee and movelist are final, it's the control panel I am undecided on. Thanks for the feedback.

    Any chance youd be willing to share the files for this artwork? Id love to apply that CPO to my control panel

    sure, i'll upload the psd file when i get home from work. it's rather large so i can't email it.

    Finally worked on the art for my Kray Cab. Let me know what you guys think of the marquee. I know the character portraits don't go with CE, I just needed some that were somewhat facing each other.

    Kray with FPS?

    Hi Guys. Sorry for what's probably a very basic question but... with the standard Kray button layout (joystick, 8 major buttons + 2 on the side (x2 for the V4), plus the two up top) can this be wired to play typical shooter games on a PS3 where you would use both PS3 controller sticks to rotate your body and look about? I'm about to start wiring mine in a week or so and it occured to me that it may not work for that type of game. Any thoughts? Thanks very much!

    Kray with FPS?

    You would need to wire the D-pad to one joystick and then an analog stick to another joystick? I don't think the buttons would be a problem, just the wiring up of the analog stick(s). Sounds like it could be done, but just doesn't sound practical. It would be interesting to see how someone would manage to play an FPS on joystick though.

    You couldn't use it with standard microswitch joysticks though. Your best bet would be finding a way to hook up yoke style analog sticks like those found on the Star Wars Trilogy or War: Final Assault arcade machines. Those types of sticks would be worthless for fighting games though in case you had a desire to play those as well.

    Thanks both of you - those are some badass looking sticks there! I may have to think about this one...

    Just my opinion, but I feel like the Champion Edition should be bigger, almost even touching the border. Also, I don't like Guile looking like he's on the same camp as Balrog and Zangief haha

    Thanks for the input. There is actually a reason for the choice of characters. I play 1p side while my brother plays on the 2p side. These characters represent the characters we play the most in ST. I like it, it personalizes it quite a bit I think. He asked that I swap out Sagat for Blanka, which is good since Blanka's hair doesn't really work in the original. I swapped Evil Ryu in as well to go along with my theory that Ryu is really just a bully that travels the globe picking fights, just a joke I've had for a while. The white dot above Sagat is simply the screw hole from the template. I left it on to make sure I was lined up properly when fixing to the plexi. I've already printed and put this in. I think it came out great, but thanks again for the recommendation.

    Does anyone here have the Vewlix or Kraylix PSD/PNG file for the regular & slim Kraylix control panel/marquee?
  • Dark GaidenDark Gaiden Joined: Posts: 284
    Apologies for the noob question....

    How did you guys mount the joysticks onto the control panel? Kray informed me that he used wooden screws, but how exactly would one manage to make the screws go underneath while not showing on top of the plexi. I've heard that using a countersink drill and bit could work, but I'm a complete novice at all of this and don't want to wreck the Kraylix ;P I've only changed sticks on a TE and HRAPs. Any assistance you guys could provide including links to items I should purchase from Lowes/Home Depot would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    You would just mount the sticks into the control panel by using woodscrews...Then print out a control panel overlay will cover the screws, then put the plexi on top.

    I did mine a little different this time around w/ my viewlix slims. Instead of just using wood screws i decided to just drill a hole down the middle & use a wingnut to tighten it up at the bottom. Here is a top/bottom pic so you can visualize what i did.

    if you mean getting the coin door to register that coins are being put in before it allows the game to be played i don't think so. I'll be putting a bucket behind the coin door and make my friends pay to play lol

    Lol. That way you would make some of the money that was spent to build your cab. Well i was just curious to know if it was even possible. Some one at my job told me he's been to the mall where they have an arcade setup with an xbox 360 in it, but the only difference was you would use dollars instead of coins.

    If you're going to paint it yourself, I've found that Glidden Door and Trim paint is one of the most forgiving paints out there. It's gel based and will leave no brush strokes. It's also very glossy and easy to clean. It's not cheap, but it beats trying various water and oil based paints and trying over and over to get a decent finish. I can tell you that from my experience painting a Vewlix cabinet. The black is also much darker than other brands that I've tried.

    If you put a coat of primer, it will be an even easier job.

    The only downside is that it's only available in a limited number of colors.

    I'm actually using automotive paint to paint it. Kray and I discussed his method of painting in detail when I picked up my system on Saturday. So my brother in law and I are prepping it for paint this week and since he paints cars as a living he's going to paint the cabinet for me while showing me a thing or two.

    If you used the photoshop template that Kray has then everything is already to scale. I just printed my artwork last night at the fed ex print shop near me. All she did was put the flash drive in, open the photoshop file, she saved it as a photoshop pdf file and printed it out. If i recall it was 32.01 by 21.09 or something around there. the 32 and 21 are correct for sure. I'll be putting up some pics of my artwork in the cabinet in a few minutes.
  • aminthemachineaminthemachine Joined: Posts: 35
    So here's a few pics of the cabinet with the artwork in it. I wasn't patient enough to wait until it was painted so decided to at least put the artwork in to see how it looks. Let me know what you think. Thanks

    They were available on amazon but they sold out now...To be honest they look nice but aren't very comfortable...

    The brown leather ottoman's are way more comfortable but a little bit high for candy cabs...I just need 1 more white cuz just 1 is just weird...Been waiting over 2months now & still no stock...If you know an alternate site that would be awesome...

    I would get two white. If you ever need to get rid of them, white should be easier to sell.
