    Nice cab, jonyfraze! 2 questions for you please:

    -Does it come in white?

    -How are the button placements? Read reviews on Reddit where folks said the buttons were too far apart and made gameplay uncomfortable. What's been your feelings on this?

    Thanks.

    Very impressive!
    I wish my basement was big enough to do like you, but alas no. So I only have space for my custom cabinet and my big-screen setup for modern consoles, and no room to display my entire collection of older stuff.
    Extra props for the Kamen Rider Baron Banaspear box peeking out from the back (huge Gaim fan here). :)
    Current at-home stick: Hori VLX Kuro (LS-40-01 + PS-14-K)
    Current portable stick: Mad Catz TvC (LS-40-01 + PS-14-KN)
    Current guest-sticks: custom ABS Modular stick (JLF + OBSN-30), custom Saint-stick (Happ/IL Competition)
    Cabinet: custom "Resistor" cabinet (32" LCD, X360, P1=LS-32-01 + PS-14-KN, P2=JLF + OBSC-30)
    Previous sticks: custom Happ CvS2 Double-sticks, custom Happ Hitomi-stick & Xenosaga-stick, custom Sanwa/Seimitsu Neptune-stick and Sylvia-stick, modded Mad Catz TvC, modded Mad Catz Brawlstick, modded Hori FSVX, modded Exar Exaprize

    no its only in black unless you want to add custom white vinyl artwork. button layout is actually pretty good. standard vewlix layouts. enough space for 2 people. i thought i was gonna hate the mounting screws for the joysticks however they dont bother me during gameplay. im pretty happy with the purchase so far!

    I always wanted my own Arcade Cab (Japanese style) and now that i do i can finally post mine in this thread that i stalked for a few years now lolololol. Heres my little humble set up a custom built Vewlix cabinet design by Kraylix. I bought from a friend a few months back for my birthday. It had some marks on the control panel but i took care of that with some Car Paint, came out good. I love this thing so much but its still a work in progress. I want to fix the control panel art work for the 2nd player side it's slightly off. I want to thank Snaaaaaake and Ben Fong for helping a brother out love you guys.
    has 2 universal brooks fighting pcb
    will post more pics soon. Damn i need to clean my room lol

    That is a great game room. I'm currently in a move and hope to put together a game room just a fraction as dope as yours.

    @AVC
    That is a beautiful cabinet. Congrats. I hope to have a cabinet like that one day. I'm still in the thread stalking stage.
  • AVCAVC always learning Joined: Posts: 410
    @dela04 Thank you for the nice compliments am sure if you really want one and have enough patients you will have one and get out of the stalking stages like i did. Best advice i can offer is have money saved away because these deals come out of left field. the Last thing you want is to come across an awesome deal and have no play money to get it. Good Luck mayne and Happy Holidays

    Wow seeing some of these I wish I had room in my townhouse to do it right. I did get the council members to agree on putting some cabs in the club house for the "kids". I have yet to see anyone in there except for my monthly get together.

    Are those old DIY Viewlix blueprints still running around somewhere? I finally got a banging house with a decent job that gives me free time. I definitely want to get those in case the shutdown turns out to happen for real.

    I was lucky with these. I notice them in the back of an active arcade (only about 3 in a 6h radius) all non working so I got a great deal.

    I have been a lurker for so many years and now that I decide to be more active the site goes down :(

    That looks beautiful, love the dedication to SF.

    That Pachinko slot, it's hard to tell but is it the Third Strike one? Chun-Li eating a rice cake art. That used to be for sale in just about every circuit city back in the day. Years later I saw it for sale at a dinner, 200 bucks, should have picked it up, great set up, congrats!

    Thanks! It’s a Street Fighter 2 pachislo/skill stop machine made by a company called, Aristrocrat. It has Chun Li eating some sort of pastry. I don’t really know much about it, just that I thought it was cool. The guy that I bought it from said it came from an arcade in Japan. Let me know if you have any more questions.

    I'm jealous of the Capcom Cutes that people have.
    It's #2 on the list of cabs I'd like to own. #1 would be a Blast City; a good part of it is for the look, but another large part is for the versatility (tri-res, tate-possible, standard Sega CPs).
    But a Capcom Cute would be... cute.

    I know they're not easy/cheap to come by, especially in my neck of the woods, but if I had the space (maybe if I eventually got rid of my custom cabinet), I'd design and build myself a Capcom Cute-inspired cabinet as a replacement....

    550 USD before shipping :D :D

    Shipping costs will vary depending on where it's going. It cost me an additional 700 USD to get it to my door (I went with a company that provided door to door service, so I didn't have to worry about any of the things that one normally worries about when importing via sea ie. Shipping to port, document fees, taxes/duties, brokerage fees, freight forward fees, delivery to your house from port - normally will be a lift tail gate truck etc).

    I can't say for sure nor do I have any scientific testing completed, but with my first cab, I was able to do 1f links using the same method as I did on a "lag free" computer monitor. When I do the same thing on my 50 inch monitor, I can definitely tell there's a lag.

    The second cab, I haven't tested one bit. I just literally unboxed it, installed the 1P CP's and brook UFB and gave it a crack.

    I'll report back eventually if I do any proper testing.

    May be slightly off topic, but does anybody here have any advice on how to find older arcade cabinets for the purpose of restoring? I've searched around my city, online, and asked around local arcades/barcades, but no one seems to have any advice or info.

    Classified ads, that includes Craigslist, you could also hit up eBay.
    Warring be prepared for a several hour drive to other cities or even over state lines.
    You also might want to rent a truck or van to move the cab.
