    Taito Vewlix "Proper Acrylic" Marquee Preorder (CLOSED) Successfully Funded

    Hi there! Turns out that PayPal Friends&Family is not available in Japan anymore. Add in the fees, postage to Japan and the currently-terrible exchange rates, and the total is a tiny bit above what I can reasonably afford right now. Considering the interest other members have expressed in the...

    Taito Vewlix "Proper Acrylic" Marquee Preorder (CLOSED) Successfully Funded

    May be interested in two, but only if you sell me two LED strips to go with them too. :D

    New soon-to-be cab owner introduction

    Aka&Blue Type-R on exA comes to mind. The game can be played just fine in 4:3, but the UI feels less cramped in full 16:9. And yes, rotating a Vewlix is a major PITA. It is a 30-minute job indeed, but not something you'll want to do on a whim. Looking into buying a second one just for that reason.

    New soon-to-be cab owner introduction

    What all the people recommending the All.net P.RAS Multi 3 cabinet over a Vewlix did not mention is that the former's monitor cannot be rotated. P.RAS cabinets are stuck in yoko forever, whereas a Vewlix can be set up to play games in tate (although not the very latest Chewlixes, be careful). If...

    Dodonpachi saidaioujo Conversion sold for 2500usd

    The people who like to shit on Shou are prompt to forget that he did more for the arcade scene than they have and ever will. Was it a dick move? Arguably. Is exA in the right? Absolutely, they bought the IP from Cave. Does it matter? Absolutely not! The ROM is “preserved” and is still playable...

    WTB: Mushihime-Sama Matsuri & (DDP SAIDAIOUJOU PCB OK FIND)

    Probably a Frenchism. To “research” and to “look for” are both the same word in French. ;)

    Actually, please upgrade me from 5 to 8; with P-47 Aces mk2 and Akai Katana on the horizon, might as well have a few spares.

    Nesica panel repro surround + reader housing

    As for me, I just taped an Apple MagSafe charger under it. Works OK to (slooowly) charge my iPhone 11 but somehow not an iPhone 12. I think it may be because it sits a bit too deep.

    Vewlix Controls not working with Brook UFB + Arthrimus Vewlix Console I/O + PS4 Pro

    Your cabling looks correct. Remember you have to press the PS button from the Brook UFB after the PS4 has been switched on to register the controller. Unless your PS button is wired (which does not seem to be the case here), you can emulate it by pressing 2+3+Start simultaneously.

    Beautiful! I would have loved a black one. Please let us know if you have plans for a rerun.

    Vewlix Console I/O - Connect Brook fighting boards directly to your Vewlix.

    It’s recognized by the PS5 as a PS4 controller and is thus only compatible with PS4 games at the moment. Brook is working on PS5 native support but no timeframe has been announced so far.

    Vewlix Console I/O - Connect Brook fighting boards directly to your Vewlix.

    Free bump and update: on Arthrimus' suggestion, I crimped a small 4-pin harness to wire the P1 Brook board to the Touchpad button header on the I/O, but swapped the cables so a signal sent by the board on the Touchpad would actually trigger an input on the L3 button. I then set up the I/O so a...

    Vewlix Console I/O - Connect Brook fighting boards directly to your Vewlix.

    Ah yes, you are right! It's a simple cable swap, that will work nicely. Thanks! Let me order a crimp tool and I will build a 4-pin cable over the weekend.

    Vewlix Console I/O - Connect Brook fighting boards directly to your Vewlix.

    Hey @Arthrimus, I just received my Vewlix Console IO v2 today (after a few days stuck in customs) and it’s great! I love how cleaner it makes the cabling in my control panel. Thank you so much for making these! One question though: none of the start/option/touchpad buttons are assignable to the...

    Custom Taito Vewlix Sub Panel * SOLD OUT *

    Thanks @Epic for the description! That’s a great idea. What I did for now is stick some double-sided tape on the volume controller front panel, remove the nut from the potentiometer, and simply stick the controller to the aux panel from the botttom. Now the next problem is that the actuator is...

    Custom Taito Vewlix Sub Panel * SOLD OUT *

    Sadly @nem, that won’t do. You need two gangs to keep both the left and right stereo channels separate while adjusting them both at the same time.

    Custom Taito Vewlix Sub Panel * SOLD OUT *

    Thanks for the updates, @jermz1. As I would still rather prefer a non-permanent solution, I am currently thinking about using a rivet nut or something similar. If all else fails, the last resort is the adhesive route indeed.
