    Hey, everybody! I have almost finished the painting on my Kraylix. Now it is just a matter of assembly. Can someone please point me towards the right resources for cabinet art?

    since nobody on the thread likes to answer questions... the only ones i've found are the ones on this thread unless you get someone to custom make one.. kray also has a few to give if you ask.

    Has anyone considered using a sound bar on their kraylix cab? I ran across something like this and wondered if anyone has done this.

    http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-HW-E350-AirTrack-Soundbar/dp/B0076U2ALY/ref=cm_cr_pr_pb_t

    My kraylix cab is on order, but I may give this a try once it comes in. It features an integrated sub and the reviews are pretty good. Its the only one I have found that has the right width to fit.

    sent the hd fury and the shitty lg32 tv back, bought one of these http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0078LSTWU/?tag=dislag-20 was told it doesn't lag based off of http://www.displaylag.com/display-database/#participants-list .... hopefully that'll fix the shitty lag problems
  • rcaidorcaido Dynamic Bayside Duo Joined: Posts: 8,317
    Uh 19ms isn't good you will notice that.
  • QuasimotoQuasimoto Joined: Posts: 516
    lol.... he has the evo monitors that are 18ms.... this is 1ms more... I HIghly doubt it. read the whole article. specifically

    Its easy to assume that the middle section is the correct reading and a means for an “average”, but the end result is what matters. It makes more sense to calculate the highest possible lag, and the fastest displays in that regard are the ones you should be purchasing. For example, this ASUS monitor is used by highly competitive fighting game players worldwide and has a history of great input and response times. Even though 18ms seems like a lot, this number factors in the display response time as well as the input lag, measured from the bottom frame. With respect to this, its actually one of the fastest monitors tested on Display Lag.
  • rcaidorcaido Dynamic Bayside Duo Joined: Posts: 8,317
    Actually for some reason i was thinking 27ms...Yeah 19ms should be decent. Report back your results, as i wouldn't mind buying a back up LCD.
  • QuasimotoQuasimoto Joined: Posts: 516
    every game looks great, plus absolutely no lag. couldn't ask for a better tv

    Alright so i got the Samsung monitor. Monitor is too small, for the Kraylix. How were you able to mount it? Also what are your picture setting? Are you using game mode?

    too small? ?ui=2&ik=5f9c1638de&view=att&th=13dc870d2d222429&attid=0.3&disp=emb&zw&atsh=1


    I mounted mine to that supporing plate and then used wood screws to mount to the cab... he said this was the first kraylix that was like this, maybe you can ask for that mounting wood? btw the two yellow pieces of wood that he has supporting the mointor I didnt use, just screwed right into the cab

    btw i'm on standard mode+ if you go into the advanced options there is a game mode and yes mine is on

    The 32" Samsung series 5 tv fits perfectly inside the TV hole of the 2-player cabinet! I have mine mounted perfectly flush.
    The amp is an Emotiva Mini-X and the speakers are Harman Kardon JL-462s. The headset is the Sony Pulse wireless headset.
    Joysticks are regular Sanwa JLFs... Playing buttons are smoke OSBC rims with white and smoke plungers, start and side buttons are smoke Seimitsu screw-ins. All are connected to PS360+s.

    I bought the samsung 4003 reviewed from display lag too and it lags I compared it to my asus......its not as laggy as other tvs but im 100% it lags more even on game mode. It all depend on your preferences.

    Yes the screen fits exactly if not a little bit of gap, LG had a huge casing & fit perfectly without having to really mount it at all. Right now i ghetto rigged it with mount hopefully it doesnt fall forward...

    LG vs Samsung input lag seem the same to me when LG is using VGA. Samsung does NOT have a VGA. So heads up everyone on that.
    Samsung is quite lighter, smaller but produces a better & picture. Looks cheaper & feels cheaper though in terms of material used compared to the LG. I ended up sticking with the Samsung & the LG will be its backup for now depending how the mount holds.

    Hi guy it's been a while but i have pretty much neglected my Kraylix v4 2 player cabinet since i built it a little over a year ago everything is put together and working. I was wondering whats the best way to paint it going for a nice black and white combo trying to do it as fairly easy as possible. I left for Mexico after i built it and its been great playing it again.
    Loving my Kraylix

    Having 2 of them I can definitely say the half V4 stands are indeed quite sturdy and rarely ever move despite violent motions. If for whatever reason you still need more weight to secure it (which you shouldn't) you can always place some weights on the inside corners of the wood (there's plenty of space).

    not directly, but this is a good step by step on now to paint to a mirror finish
    http://forums.shoryuken.com/discussion/67501?threads/how-to-paint-mdf-to-a-mirror-finish-worklog.67501/

    Kray mentioned that some parts like the arc you would need assemble and then paint, so the joints all come together.

    Wish he still painted these. I'd like to buy one prepainted pretty soon. I have the money, but gotta clear up space haha.

    Thing is that if he still did the painting orders then he wouldn't be able to push out as many cabinets as he can. Back before this really got around he probably had enough free time to do the painting. But now he's so swamped that he has a waiting list for months.

    Haha, no I completely understand. Just being greedy :)
    If there was a service I could use that I could trust and wasn't super pricey, I'd gladly buy the parts from him and then have someone else do the painting. I just don't want it to come out as complete shit lol.

    if it comes with the monitor then yeah. Even without it, it doesn't seem that bad depending on shipping considering that painting was already done. Just to compare an unpainted no stick/buttons/screen would cost 595 plus shipping. shipping would be about 200 and you'd still need to buy 2 sticks, 20 buttons, 2 speakers. Buying all those plus shipping would probably close in on 140-160. Or around $1050. Assuming similar shipping cost for that one and you're only saving around $50. Which will go into lots and lots of spray paint/towels/wet sandpaper/wax and terry cloths assuming that you're going for a good finish. If you're going to just slap on some paint with a brush and not care how it looks then you'd save a little bit of money on buying from kray himself. Otherwise I'd go for it, especially if it comes with a monitor.

    I already asked the auctioneer if it comes with a monitor so check back to the page and hopefully he'll answer.
    <edit> he answsered, and yes it does.

    Just to compare btw, back when kray was doing painted orders, a similar cabinet would cost 1135 painted, and over 400 for shipping (it was already assembled, like that one).

    What's a half v4? I don't see it on his website.
  • ShinjiGohanShinjiGohan Joined: Posts: 5,091 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    the half v4 is just the lower portion of the cabinet. No arch to hold a TV, pretty much just the base and the joystick. It was on his site a few months ago. I dunno what happened to it, you can still see it on his blog.

    Do you know how much the half V4 costs? It's for the Hori Vewlix controller right?

    You are thinking of the KLX stand, which is $295 unpainted + you need to cover shipping.

    I WANT IT! But 495 for painted is alittle steep. I would not want to paint it myself, I had a bad experience painting a joystick. :-/
