Viewlix/Kraylix 24 inch plans?


#1

been searching online for a slim type or 24 inch kraylix/viewlix plans. and wanted to know if this is viable for a 2-player type cab eventhough it;ll just be 24+ inches wide. currently making a mame cabinet.

thanks

I don’t think 24" are good for a 2-player setup… but then again, you should check and take notes on the dimensions of a real arcade cab just to be sure.

And sorry, I have some Vewlix plans somewhere in my gaming rig… but the PSU is dead and I can’t get the info until I replace it.

thanks for the feedback.

checked on the cabinet thread and i think i can pull this off with a few tweaks on donovan myers specifications

24" is fine for two players. Not sure if you were around for arcades in the US, but the 25" MK3 ultimate CRT was MASSIVE at the time. Also, the 4 player based games started on 25" CRTs. Eventually they went to 29" ones, but I’m running a 24" on my Naomi/Viewlix hybrid and it’s fine.

I put some very basic plans together based around a 24 inch display, here:

It would probably be slightly too small for 2 players though.

It’s been modified over the years to look more like the real cab though:

Original build log is here:

Edit: 24 inch display would be absolutely fine for 2 players btw.

Hi guys,

Thanks for the replies.

I actually like this one from [OCT]Wall-Garants and might go with a small tv for the mean time. I do have a question on where you got the plans/specifications for the control panel

cause i can only find this panel from donovan:

I don’t recall any plans with specific control panel dimensions when I built the slim. I went off the owner’s manual(s) and calculated based on the general cabinet dimensions. Link here if it’s of any use and you haven’t seen them before:
