Any info on the Gamerfinger VL Case?


#1

Was browsing the Gamerfinger website when I saw this:

gamerfinger.com/case.html

Anyone know anything about this? A small picture can be seen on the little hover menu to the left. Considering that VLX’s are out of print, this definitely looks cool.

All I got is a 404 Error.


#3

Looks sick, seems like its very fresh because Ive not seen it before. Wating for the opical stick as well


#4

Well that is the mystery. It looks like they have not update their site in like two years or something. I’m just glad they still exist.


#5

There is a thumbnail on the left side nav bar.


#6

Looks to me like a Kdit VL metal fight stick

I still can’t get over those octagonal rims.


#8

Me neither mainly because I’m sure trying to get them all lined up and if they rotate while gaming will get my OCD blood to boil


#9

I thought the rims would bother me a lot but I quite like like them. But I am the same tensho, it also becomes much more of a difficult task rotating them because of how tight they are. Also added note, I would love them in that gold color.


#10

They’re almost singlehandedly a dealbreaker. I wish they’d get over themselves.


#11

The rims are fine as they are.

What they could possibly need is a more convex rim, to facilitate easier slide inputs.


#12

The only thing Im unhappy with is the clear plungers who have a white surface peeking out under the plunger art you place on top, but other then that I think the buttons feel 100 times better than Sanwa

They sell them on ebay for a hefty price and shipping.

And a member on here has one he painted white and got the custom clear sides to show LED lights I think, Syn13


#15

Agreed 101% If the gamefinger buttons where round instead of octagonal I would own a set by now.


#16

After using the HBSF buttons for a couple weeks, I gotta say the feel you get totally outweighs the octagon rims.

The Gamerfinger case looks like a derivative of that ebay case, but I don’t think it’s the same. Cool find though.

And geez that white one is ridiculously clean. Can I commission you for artwork if I get this case, @syn13? ;D


#17

And even then I still wouldn’t own a set because snap-in. I am happy with my Seimitsu RG switch mods which feel similar and activate at a more sensitive touch.


#18

The buttons actually feel fantastic, although i do agree that I wish they weren’t octagonal rims. Either way i’d LOVE to have some other colors in translucent as well as the case.


#19

The unique shape is actually pretty smart from an advertising/sponsorship angle. Not for everybody clearly, but unlike the big 2, they standout without having to ask somebody.


#20

I’m almost completely certain this is why they did it.

Agreed (I have two sets – a standard 8-pack of 30mm, and a kit for a hitbox), but that doesn’t change the fact that they’re an annoying eyesore. I do think @kikimaru024 is on to something about better designing it around slide inputs - at least whatever design they’d come up with in that case would have a functional priority. As the design exists now, it’s just daft.
