    Wow. :thumb:
    -Feet might need some help. You're dropping 60 or more pounds on them, and I'm worried they will need some front to back bracing.

    A little tilt on the side panels would be cool too. -To make them more like folded wings.:D

    Thanks Cheaps! :thumb:

    Don't worry about feet-they will get steel rods like the prototype has. The thing that I need to decide is- to use two or only one rod. Probably there will be two. ;)

    Good idea about panel tilt-but I am not sure how will I do that.

    fun) and I had to save the best for last!:thumb:

    I am glad that I succeeded to cheer you up.:thumb:

    3k $ for HW? Jesus. I haven't spend that on HW in last 5 years.

    Exaggeration. Around 1k give or take $500. Two to four 670's.And an i5 quad. Plus mobo, a good 24-32 gbs of ram, and a rather beefy 850-1000w psu. Oh, and some peripherals worthy of a name other than "nintendo POS", if ya catch my drift. I have to order it for myself as gramps only undertands "sale" and not "legitimate" or exact. Same. Words :rolleyes: I ask for a legitimate dualshock 3, what do i get? A dualshock 2 based chinese sweatshop made pc version.theres a reason i asked for brand name. R2+L2 arent rubber domes on the latest, actually-useful version. But he always puuls the "looks completley legit" trick. I finally told him i don't trust china-based warehouses for an actual reason other than patriotism. :wallbash: :wallbash:

    Still lot of money-but for that setup in Croatia you would need to give 4000+ $.

    Well,if that controller is cheap-it is good.

    daaaaang. I would hang myself. Or do as I do everytime i get a chance and flip off anyone involved with royally screwing us over.

    @the controler isn't good. Analogues won't click, R2 + L2 are rubber domes-which means they don't sense different amounts of pressure. Normally I wouldn't complain but my gaming needs fancy little features like that:sigh:. I would mod it, but alas. I can't change the triggers, a new microcontroller would be needed. maybe if I could learn programming I could arduino it...:idea:

    Weird...-the foil gives it a really neat look-clear edges, with brushed metal sides...:idea:

    It is white shiny foil. Feet have white foil on one side and transparent foil on other side.

    Mhm. The pics just make it look like acrylic sandwiched between alu. What with the build I'm financialy... narrowing down, being made with acrylic, steel and alu it gives me a very benefial alternative to cutting mind numbing amounts of acrylic and alu bars... solves a few design issues too,
    Just means that you are all the more awesome by helping me a great deal without even knowing it :D
    thanks :thumb:
    Of all the modders I most often find you to actually deserve the hammer of the great bindibadgi :worship: :lol:
