#1

Here you will find all of the information of the products relating to the X series custom and modular cases.

FAQ:

Q: What is the difference between X1 & X2 model?
A: Both models are almost identical but the main difference is the control panel. The X1 has a one part replaceable control panel where as the X2 has a two part replaceable control panel for more varied options.

Q: What are the available stick & button layouts?
A: I can provide absolutely any layout you like including hitbox aswell?

Q: Do you provide etching services?
A: Yes, any of the panels can be etched.

Q: Will you be providing coloured, tinted or mirror acrylic?
A: Yes, I can provide this aswell but customer will need to enquire first so I can let them know of the additional cost (if any).

Q: If we want DIY art options, do you have templates available?
A: Yes PSD files will be downloadable depending on your layout.

Q: Is there a top plexi, or do we need to attach laminate paper to the top?
A: Both the top and bottom have a 3mm clear acrylic “plexi” cover so you can easily remove this and insert your own artwork, print, paper etc.

Q: Do you take positioning changes for the additional side buttons?
A: Yes, the customer can have them where ever they choose subject to the corner and centre reinforcement blocks not getting in the way.

Q: Can I use my own artwork?
A: Both the X1 & X2 will arrive in completely clear acrylic. The customer can insert their own artwork, print, paper of whatever they want to all 6 sides of the case. The top and bottom 3mm plexi can be removed to allow for artwork etc. The 4 walls are clad in 2mm thick acrylic which can also be removed to allow artwork etc to be inserted underneath.

The X1 black case (noir) shown above aswell as the X2 purple dual panel case (vewlix) are available immediately.

X1 black- £100 including shipping

X2 purple- £130 including shipping

I am throwing in free shipping as these are prototypes. They are in pristine/new condition and are pre-assembled as shown. Subsequent to these prototypes I have made some very minor adjustments to final product.


#11

Mind blown, do you ever allow for pick up in London to avoid shipping?


#12

Thanks. Yes, im located North/East London.


#13

Wicked, I’m around Enfield and Walthamstow.

How much do the cases weigh each and together.


#14

Walthamstow is just down the road from me. Its funny you mentioned the weight, I have spent all morning trying to find my scales. Leave it with me I will get back to you on that one and update the details above.

EDIT: Weight details added to description.

#16

Cant believe I live near the Yoda of custom arcade sticks! Whoop Whoop!


#17

Yeah just might have to finally pull the trigger and own a stick from you B15. Not exactly a 1-off custom but amazing just the same. Good work!


#18

Price drops.


#19

Oh god, this is so tempting… If only I actually had money to spend… =X

Anyways, even if I don’t get it, there are some things I feel that should be made clear. If we want DIY art options, do you have templates available? Also, is there a top plexi, or do we need to attach laminate paper to the top? And speaking of templates, do you take positioning changes for the side buttons? And Home/Guide?

Glad you like it. I have added your questions to the first FAQ post :slight_smile:
