Anyone build/sell or know where to buy a good quality Pinsim ?

Post by Azatotht »

Hi everyone, I was wondering if there was any good place to get Pinsim cab controllers.

Do you own one ? Did you build it yourself ? Got it from a good builder/seller ?

Please let me know. I might be interested.

I really like the feel of VPX in VR but playing with a PS4 controller is a bit killing the experience.

I'm not looking for a controller with a PC and videocard inside, just one I can hook to my current PC.

For those wondering wth I am talking about (it's an old link, i'm pretty sure this is now way move advanced technically, just posting for reference): https://www.tested.com/making/how-tos/5 ... l-machine/

I'm only trying to find out if there's something available, not sure I want to go all in on that either.

I'm currently building a tabletop vpin with a 22" monitor and probably a 15" backglass/DMD monitor (4:3). Only want to be able to try out certain games to figure out if I like them enough to buy the real thing. Playing on my gaming computer with a landscape monitor is annoying.

I find the VR VPX thing to be too much of a hassle especially when I have real machines in the next room lol.

Non ... c'est surement cool mais c'est laid pis ca l'air bizarre! ... et comme tu dis, lorsque tu as des vrais, why would you get that "midget thing" !

Tu oublies... Quand tu es en VR tu ne vois pas le controller. Tes main sont dessus et ça 'feel' comme une vrai machine, ce qui correspond a ce que tu vois en VR.

Pis c'est pas pire pentoute comme feeling, les proportions sont parfaites et tu bouge autour de la machine en jouant donc tu vois du même angle.

Ca fait assez longtemps que je suis là-dedans pour connaître la différence entre les vraies pis les jeux sur l'ordi, t'inquiète Phil :mrgreen:

Ca reste excellent pour essayer des games, pas mal plus immersif que simplement sur l'écran de l'ordi.
