Thanks. If you are ever in LA, be sure to drop me a line so we can road test it with some vf.
I modded the vshgs to work with xbox. unfortunately I am a novice at electronics so I wasnt able to make them switchable between ps3 and xbox. However, if someone did want that functionality added, I can have that done for an extra $200. I liked the fs3 and the stick on the fs3 panel is a sanwa but after using the VSHGs for a few weeks it was hard to go back to anything else and I decided to make a panel with them. Later, the VSHG panel which I was using for ps3 got modded to work with xbox.
Hey Jason, thanks alot. It would be cool but they would need to put locks on the doors to people dont steal the systems inside or the controllers, I think.
Sure, i’d be more than happy to share how I made it. If you follow the links, there is a little info on one of the sites as well. As for the price, its mainly because of the monitors, component video splitter, vshgs and the woodwork involved. If someone were to have the exact same thing built, they would be spending alot more than $2000. For example, fabricating only 2 vshg panels with precision cuts, rounded edges and the formica finishing cost me $250 and that was the lowest estimate I got from a pool of 8 cabinet makers.
I’m also making this available on here and virtuafighter.com first before it goes onto ebay. I would really like to keep this cab somewhere in the fighting game community.
Sorry to keep asking questions on this thread, but the VSHG is just Sanwa Snap ins with a JLF. So you used the Hori FS3 buttons and then replaced the FS3 stick with a sanwa? I still don’t see why you could have just kept that and saved money on buying VSHG’s, since you’d end up using the exact same parts and for alot cheaper. Unless it was for the panel or something/pcb/design or hell even just personal preference. Etc etc, but anyways it’s a beautiful piece of work. I’d buy it but I’m poor.
Edit: What happened to the Ps3 and can we see pics of your new one?
L A Akira, I have just seen your new build - being a fan of actual Candy cabs from Japan and having owned many cabs over the past few years I have to say I really like your work, they are both very stealthy sleek and look to be well made units.
major longshot, but I’ll ask anyways - is there any chace you do a flatpack buildit yourself kit without the TV’s and hardware and could ship to the UK ?
