Got a link to this japan arcade viewlix loom?

Nevermind found it! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Cable-Contro ... Sw7p5aZ8l7

Looks pretty decent. But for that kinda job it would only cost £25 to make. I have the parts already to do that. It's missing proper earth connector too.

I was thinking along the lines of something that looks pretty much identical to an original loom, right down to the lettering stamps on the connectors. Not that I think anybody would see it anyway. :oops:

But im thinking taito probably charges £100+ for the loom and you can make it yourself using the same parts. It's not any different to sticking on a control panel sticker which taito charges like £40. Paying taito to stick it on doesn't make it anymore original than sticking it on yourself :lol:

Are we looking at the same auction link? Looking at the pics it includes both 1P and 2P harnesses and the earth connector.

I make my own harnesses and that's a very fair price. I takes a surprisingly long time to cut wire to correct length, strip and crimp on connectors.

However, if you're really doing both player harnesses for £25 with proper connectors, I'll take two pairs, thanks.

I order from him quite a bit, I hate making my own harnesses that require amp connectors. He is super nice, and his harnesses are years ahead of anything I could make.

Another vote for the seller. Purchased a few items and he has posted very quickly with items packed very well.

He also found one item was cheaper postage than quoted an emailed me straight away and offered free shipping on my next order.

The harnesses I bought from him look great. I didn't think about the brooks thing until after. Do you fellas think there's an easy way to keep JVS and Brooks stuff without bs?

Got the cab today John. Thanks for this.

It's a fab machine,it even pushed me into doing my first unboxing video... :awe: So much nicer than the Vewlix L. The screen has amazing. All it needs is JVS power outside of that it's great.

I am throwing 3 consoles into it for now.
Switch, PS4, X1 or X360 with brook adapter.

Happy weekend all.

Ha Thanks loads that made me day.

Ya that makes two, Terry Bogerts one the other 😀 From 2016 or so.

I was nervous enough making it before I hit record. It was pure winging it. It went perfect but the phone cut me off before I moved it into arcade room to sign off on the video.

Outside of that, it went well enough bar I was a serious todd the whole way through. bit of humour would have added to it.

Ooh well, might make a video 2 when its proper embedded with the other cabs in the arcade room.

Bought 60e of shrumps on switch today, GunBird 2 Aero f 2, Strikers 1945 II, Ikaruga, Etc. I'll get x1 x360 ps4 into it tomorrow

Excellent video and a outstanding room setup.

How about adding a new Philips hue hub to the hdmi inputs on the consoles in the Vewlix and lining the sides with lights as that would go well with the room.

Nice Idea JugHead,didnt even think of it, I have a Philips Hue in Arcade Room already.
Next up for me is selling a few cabs, I have 12 cabs now and its a bit too cluttered, I can fit 11 easily,
I would like to have some wall space, do some nice artwork and lighting etc, probably sell 2 of my Noami cabs.

That will leave me with:
1 Astro
1 E2
1 AWSD
2x Sega Rally Twin
1 Outrun 2 SP (ID Cab)
1 Taito Vewlix L
1 Taito Diamond Black
1 Taito Cocktail
1 NNC with separate Gun Pedestal (HotD, vCop3, Ghost Squad, C Mission etc)
2x Naomi Cabs to sell (1 upright 1 NNC chopped)

As for having consoles in BD, frowned upon maybe, but it doesnt have JVS power, and even then id rather build a PC with nesica frontend or the games I like.
Tbh so far Im loving it, you can amass a nice collection at low cost these days. The screen is amazing in these, makes the Vewlix L look horrid in comparison.
I got all consoles hooked up today and I have a remote to change HDMI and all I need to do is choose 1 of 3 cables into BROOK I/O, 10s to switch consoles aint bad.

Day 1 Playing on New Diamond I love it, finally PS4 Pro got some use. Darius, Raidan V were good fun.
