So… question; several respones would be ideal.
I ordered the vermillion bezel: GameShark? Store - New Arrivals
From what I can tell, it’s a dark red, a crimson(blood) red as it were.
And this is the normal red bezel: GameShark? Store - New Arrivals
A little lighter than the vermillion that I purchased, correct? Okay…
I think it was posted that all the Bezel’s match their Sanwa counterparts, buttons and balls… and for a while I was under the impression that vermillion was a dark/crimson red because that’s what I’m seeing in the Madcatz/vermillion bezel. With that impression I’ve been looking into buttons and a balltop.
This is where I hit quite a bit of walls. Everywhere I’m looking ( etokki/lizardlick ) Sanwa vermillion is in fact an orange-red, not a dark red. Looking closer ( wikipedia ) it is indeed an orange red color:
" Vermilion is also the name of the typical color of the natural ground pigment, which is a bright red tinged with orange. " - wikipedia
SO. What’s my point? My point is I wanted a red (or) dark red theme going on, bezel/buttons/balltop matching and all. I’m a bit confused as how to procede however because I have no idea what the Madcatz bezel is going to look like, since in the picture it’s clearly a dark red, but the color being advertised ( vermillion ) doesn’t match it’s description, and it’s taking forever to ship.
Any advice? I know Markmans at evo so I’m sure he’s busy, but any thoughts would help.
edit: copied from Madcatz thread so I could get a few more responses.
