    Nice setup clipse. I just got mine also. I was wondering if you can please provide the PSD Vewlix artwork. I only have the one that says kraylix. Thanks! =)

    Everything looks great apart from the visible LG logo on the screen. Is the bezel temporary?
    I love shmups and never play fighting games.

    ralosangeles86, if you dl the psd I linked to, you'll notice that you can uncheck the layer for Kraylix and check the layer for Vewlix and voila!!

    Hi. I am joining the ranks of Kraylix owners, and I am VERY excited! I was looking for a tv, but the SRK threads are dated, and I cannot find any of the recommended tv's. Does anyone have some suggestions? Hoping to grab something from an online black friday deal, or cyber monday (I hate myself for typing those). Thank you guys and gals in advance.

    I will hopefully be buying a kraylix in the next few months (if I quit getting parking tickets) and I just picked up the tv for it since I got it in a crazy sale at best buy here in canada. It's a 32" 1080P Samsung LED UN32EH5300F. From what I could find, when game mode is turned on, the input lag is between 1-2 frames. I'm not a pro, so that's decent for me. If I find it bothers me later on, perhaps I'll pick up an HD Fury or something. The TV is hella nice, and has that smart tv stuff so it can stream video over wifi from my other pc, etc.

    Apparently the LG CS360(maybe 260?) is cheaper and has less lag, but is only 720P!

    I ordered my KRAYLIX about 6 months ago and it's being painted now. I am going a bit different route... kind of an old hot rod look. Flat Matte Black and Flat Matte White. The painter is going nuts because despite seeing it before he agreed to paint it... it's taking a lot longer than he thought. I've had all of the electronics for about a year so as soon as it finishes paint I'll be wiring it up for use. Every day I walk into my "office" the 32" LCD/LED TV is staring at me saying... "Well?" Needless to say, I am super excited to wrap this one up.

    Has anyone accumulated and put together all of the various artwork for these guys? If needed I can and will host them on my server for easy access.

    I would NEVER sell my Kraylix. Maybe in order to build a new one. Different color maybe. I have a few ideas. You guys are correct its hard to find a solid 32" HDTV these days. Its seems they don't care about smaller models anymore. It was hard for me to find the features I wanted at the time. I went with a Sony 3D HDTV LED KDL-32EX729. They don't make this model anymore, but you can still find it I'm sure. It had the right features and design to blend into the bezel. Btw, my Kraylix's video capture chain is COMPLETE! I'm almost done...home stretch.

    My Flash 1 PCBs went in today. They definitely feel different than normal Sanwa microswitches.

    Any good suggestions for a 32" Tv with low input lag to put in a cab these days? Preferably in the 200-400 dollar range! No preference if its 720 or 1080p!

    I don't know exact numbers, but I have an Lg 32ls3500 that seems to not have any noticeable lag. Under $400.

    Ill check that one out thanks! Also has anyone ever shipped a kraylix 2 player cab? What company/method of packaging did you use in sending it and how did it arrive/how much did it run you? I am attempting to buy one at the moment and Forward Air estimated the shipping at about 280$. Keep in mind that the cab is fully completed outside of needing a television and a system.

    i forgot the name of the company but shipping to los angeles was like 350 dollares for a fully asemble machine.

    Well,talked to the painter and my cab will be done the weekend before christmas and got the word from PosterPrintShop.com that the film print for the control panel, marquee, and movelist is in the mail... have the Sanwa Stuff for the control panel and a TV that doesn't want to work with my JROK encoder so I think I am ready to go and wire it up! I can't wait. I'll be sure to document everything and post up the results.

    I'm just about done...just a few more minor things!!! Apparently my upload isn't working properly. How do you post pics?

    I'm keeping my visible Sony logo. I think its nice to know what kinda display is in there. I did raise the TV slightly due to its shallow bezel, so my logo isn't obstructed in anyway. I still don't know how to post pics on here. Sorry for the novice question.

    I think you have to post them somewhere else then click the "insert/edit image" button and give the pop up the url to your image? Not sure, haven't done it myself :$

    You host the image somewhere, like photo bucket. Then you post the URL in your message surrounded by

    tags.

    I guess I only really post personal pics and stuff at FaceBook. I guess I'll figure out something though. People gotta see this thing.

    Has anyone used a slim cab for a mame setup. Theses look great just sold my 4-player Simpsons bc i want something smaller.
  • binabykbinabyk Joined: Posts: 15
    That's what I'm intending for mine... going to have a ps3 in there for modern fighters and a mame box for old school arcade action. I found a usb kvm switch whose "switcher button" is on an extension cord-thingy so I'll hide that on the back/side beside the tv to easily switch between the two.

    I'm probably being unclear on what I mean about the kvm switch so here it is:

    if the switch has a button...like this does, just remember you can run that button through the little gap where the control panel meets the legs. There is space for maybe 1-2 cables. I've run my SIXAXIS charge on one side and a spectator camera on there other. Very slick. And neat.

    I'm sure Kray can pocket a six button layout for you. Shipping you'll need to verify that with him. Just shoot him an email about your questions he'll answer you pretty quickly.

    Here's some art that I put together for my Kraylix cabinet. This isn't my original art, I adapted it for use on the cabinet.

    Wow that's really nice mate, any chance you can upload the large psd templete to the cloud somewhere and share this design?
    thanks so much

    Sure, here's a link to the file in Photoshop format.

    My Kraylix finally came back from Paint today. The guy did an ok job. I'm a very picky customer, so I give him an 81%. There are somethings he didn't do as well as I would have (if I had a garage to paint it in) but overall it looks fine. My phone died navigating me to his shop, so pictures will come later. Once the paint is fully cured and the cabinet has been in my house for a day or so I will fully assemble it and start wiring it up!

    nothing against anyones art or decisions...but I see problems calling this "Vewlix" as it has nothing to do with Taito AT ALL!!! Do what you want, but my proudly says KRAYLIX. Giving props to the creator, fabricator and builder. I'm just saying.
  • rix9rix9 Joined: Posts: 5
    You're right, I actually had the same thoughts. My Kraylix is fully assembled with the art printed, but when I swap the marquee to backlit photo paper I had already decided to swap to the Kraylix logo from the Vewlix one.

    Ok... here is a teaser. I just got the TV mounted. Turns out the slim bezel kind-of not good for these. I will have to rethink the mounting/no plexi... me thinks.

    I'm really close to ordering a V4. Of course I have dumb questions. As far as LCD Tvs...I can't find the LG 32LD350 anymore. Frustrating.

    1. What about Sony, Samsung or Panasonic?

    2. What's the easiest way to wire up? Hack some controllers, PS360 or just buy 2 WWE Brawl sticks for the guts? Then just add a JlF and Sanwas.

    3. VGA vs HDMI

    4. 720 vs 1080


    Thanks!!
