Re: Vewlix: Replace easily your screen with a 1080p or 1440p monitor

Quick question. Received my cabinet and the monitor stinks and is only VGA even though I paid for an HDMI/1080P monitor. I am not really going to use my cabinet for newer stuff (Tekken 7, SFV, etc). Basically just playing retro games via Mame (Capcom brawlers, Neo-Geo, X-men, shmups) and will add my...

Re: Replacement monitors for Vewlix/Chewlix

Anyone have a suggestion for a monitor that is somewhat affordable and mounts without too much effort in a vewlix/chewlix cabinet? I paid for a 1080P monitor in mine and they shipped it with a 720/VGA monitor. Can't you tell them to sort it out? or send you a proper 1080p panel? Did you agree on 10...

Re: Chewlix C (Chinese Vewlix Capcom)

Put my order in through Potech on alibaba Will be updating on how it goes over the next few nerve-racking months. I would ask Rose Zheng to cancel the order if you can. I just dealt with Potech buying a replacement control panel and they are useless. They somehow made three waybills and I had two r...

Re: Best version of Pandoras box

The others like 9s are bootlegs of a bootleg and supposedly run poorly. If you want "official" it is the one sold on aliexpress through the 3AGames store front. Even most on amazon/ebay are not theirs.

Re: Mame Laserdisc files

Explorer says there are 43 files, so you're missing over half of them. Should be a case of extracting the main archive fully then extracting the first numbered file to do the contents. Since the parity file is marked bad, I suspect the source is incomplete. I have all 43, the jpg isn't showing the ...

Mame Laserdisc files

I looked at the rules and if I goofed and this is not allowed to ask please delete. There are a batch of Laserdisc game files over at archive.org. I have downloaded them and they aren't roms or CHDs or anything. It's a weird batch of files ending in .084, .085, etc (windows identifies them as a 084 ...

Re: Chewlix C (Chinese Vewlix Capcom)

You won't get an "official" one from alibaba. The branding on the ones I have is from the reseller... They have "vewlix" on the marquee and "taito" on the control panel. The decals were purchased separately What I meant was that Taito doesn't manufacture these. A factory in China does. I saw in a t...

Re: Chewlix vs Vewlix vs other modern Cabs

If you want to run a Pandora - then the standard off the shelf JAMMA Chewlix with 2L14B or 2L16B control panel will work just fine. When you order it you need to make sure it comes with a full JAMMA loom and power supply - the Chewlix monitor is a 720P, 32" CD with DVI & VGA inputs (some come with ...

Chewlix vs Vewlix vs other modern Cabs

Greetings all. I am new to this after buying an Arcade 1UP a little over a month ago and having buyer's remorse by the 2nd day, not to mention instant carpal tunnel from the absurdly small size of it. At first I was all set on a Recroom Cabinet but then I saw that they don't even close in the back. ...

Hey, that’s my garage wall in the background. ;) I can confirm vewlix F and FC (red) have a led strip underneath the holder. My L did not have It though.
Do you have official Vewlix units? I'm looking to buy one (preferably new). Where did you purchase yours?
