    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: 3,139 ✭✭✭
    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.
    http://akihabarashop.com/status.html

    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 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.

    You could just bend those prongs back straight....well not straight..like to the side...just lift it a little bit higher..as for the "broken" piece...take it apart...maybe something just got loose..

    OngBak
    Firstly, I personally got stuff from Seimitsu that also was bent like that, and it is very irritating, but try to bend it back.
    Also, the sound :), I have a LS-33 and a LS-32-01 here at my desk in front of me right now and when I shake them both they have a strange sound to it. I recorded it:
    http://www.arkadesticks.com/seimitsusound.WAV
    That is basiclly the sound of the blades on the leafswitches moving.

    i guess ill just bent the ponge back, and the noise was coming from the angle movements what therealneogeo said, but man i just hate poor quailty stuff. Just hope it will work when i try to install it. Overall, i got my stuff. Thanks

    Thats not "poor quailty" stuff, thats typical of any stick in shipping, prongs get bent 55% of the time with any stick, and the noise is normal, I'm guessing you don't build that many sticks. I wouldn't be complaining.

    Man, TRNG actually went to the distance of making a sound recording to make sure OngBak is satisfied.
    I just gotta say, nice customer service.

    I hope my stuff gets here before March 17 cause I'm going to Texas Showdown.

    Sorry for this, hope you are pleased with the order anyway.

    Demon Dash
    It has been ordered from Sanwa/Seimitsu so we wait untill the parts have arrived (it will say so on the statuspage).

    ParryPerson
    That is true that it get bent a lot but this only happens to me with Seimitsu-products, never Sanwa (why is this?). Both manufacturers are great anyway :).

    Shekeib
    It really is no problem, just trying to answer the questions customers may have and it helped with a audiofile this time so why not do it :).

    Ok thanks :) just worried about the "Note that this switch is longer compared to standard buttons, make sure your panel has the internal clearance required." part.
    I've never modded or touched anything, so I have no clue about the type of clearance a hrap has hehe.. I just know I want to replace the buttons and fill in the last two ones.. and maybe get a pretty new bubble ball. Will research a little more, but 100% certain that when the time (read paycheck) comes, I'll order with you :tup:
