    As I recall you have chosen EMS-shipping, yes? So yeah, if the picture of your order is a`ok it is sent tomorrow (today in Japan, it is Feb 24th) and you have it on Tuesday-Thursday I think (hope :)).

    Thank me when it has arrived at your place :).

    Are you going to update the Picture and Tracking links on the bottom of the orders?
    When can I expect my stuff, I dont' really need an exact date or anything, just an estimated time period.

    Thanks for all the great work!

    I am going to yes, but I have not recieved any pics yet. But don`t worrie, they will come. I post in this thread when it is all done.

    Shippingtime is as follows:
    EMS= 3-5 workingdays (sometimes 2workingdays).
    AirMail= About a week, two weeks.

    Also, my friend who buys the stuff works 14h/day (Monday-Friday) so it takes a little while sometime but have no fear :).

    UPDATING SOON!

    Also, updated the statuspage but you cant see and pics yet, but soon...

    Cool, but... the tracking leads me to a site in japanese, which I can't read. I'm not sure where to put the tracking number

    Pictures don`t work because I have not gotten them yet, I got an email from him today saying he will send them today. Also, when it is sent I will put the real trackingnumber on there.
    And there is no trackingnumber for AirMail (you chose AirMail right?). But you will see pic of it before it is shipped.

    Just got home again, been out all day. Sorry for the time it took to get the pictures up, I try my best. Also, those who got the wrong stuff will be traded for tomorrow (Seimitsu is responsible not me :(, I would never do such a bad thing, never ever :)) and then everything is shipped so I am hoping to get the trackinginfo tomorrow so I can update the statuspage for you guys who choosen EMS-shipping.

    And for those off you who ordered and want to check out the reciet from Sanwa/Seimitsu just to prove that all stuff came from there just send an email and I can send it next week (just have to collect some scannerimages), just to prove to you guys that akihabarashop.com are legit and nothing else.

    Thanks for your support!

    Are you guys able to make any money off of this thing? Even if you are, I imagine it's minimal...
    Thanks for the service!

    Well, a little but not much, and that is not the point either. I am not going to be millionaire on this and I am not shooting for it either. Those who want freshparts directly from the partsmaker shipped directly to the customer choose akihabarashop.com.
    Actually shipping and bankfee`s for me alone is:

    Shipping from Sanwa to our location: 441yen
    Banktransfer fee from japanesebankaccount to Sanwa bankaccount: 420yen

    Shipping fromSeimitsu to our location: 750yen
    Banktransfer fee from japanesebankaccount to Seimitsu bankaccount: 700yen

    So total here in banktransfer is=2311yen
    +5% I have to pay my friend for PayPal fee`s.

    Also we pack it, ship it, update statuspage, take individual orderpics.....it takes time but I am willing to do it as long as it is fun.

    Sent you an email. Seimitsu sent wrong joystick, they have sent LS-32-01 instead of LS-33-01 like you wanted. There is a pic in the mail so you can see for yourself.
    It will be swapped today (Monday) at Seimitsu.
  • TheRealNeoGeoTheRealNeoGeo Arcadeparts Joined: Posts: 3,150
    OK, now every order has a picture of it. And everything is shipped tomorrow (today in Japan, it is about 01:30am there now). When it is shipped I will update the ems customers with trackinginfo on the statuspage.

    OK everybody. All orders are shipped now :). It took some time because it is so much stuff and I want to be 100% that it is the right stuff the customer gets.

    For you guys who chose EMS, copy the trackingnumber (right of the trackinglink, EIxxxxxxxxxJP) then click tracking. Click on the "Item No Search"-button where it says EMS, then just paste the trackingnumber in the blank field and press Enter.

    Check the sanwa modification thread.

    Edit: I was wrong; the HRAP comes with a JLF (sanwa) I guess. Thanks Paik for clearing it up.

    For all your HRAP needs, the HRAP thread:

    http://www.shoryuken.com/forums/showthread.php?t=95713

    The HRAP does indeed have a JLF. I'm sure you can mod it with a Seimitsu. Pretty much anything is possible. It just might be difficult and not worth it. Also if you haven't tried a Seimitsu it might not be worth your time. I love Sanwa but I ordered a Seimitsu from Per just to try it out in one of the future sticks I'm building.

    Imho I'd say Siemitsu are better, but it's just personal preferance. I think any arcade gamer can do perfectly fine with either though.

    I got my order yesterday (Friday), and everything is great. Already have half of the stuff in my HRAP2 and it's working perfectly. Can't wait to get to work on the other stick. Thanks again!

    I just got my package today, somehow the joystick i got looks very weird. Therealneogo, can you tell me if this joystick is suppose to look like this? Is it suppose to be bent like that? Also, i try shaking it and it sounded like there is a broken piece in the joystick and it not the clicking noise when u move the joystick.
