Actually I kind of like the way it looks. Plus because it is a semicircle it will have a lot less chance of getting slightly loose and slipping around the shaft.

nice initiative - building your own caps for the European/western part of the world. But quite frankly, I am not to exited about the letters on top of it. They are needed for better grip of course, but it makes the caps look kind of cheap.

Looks like licourice! :p But one thing I disliked about GP32 were the buttons, with "lowered" A and B, they started hurting my fingers after awhile... I hope I can indeed file them a bit.

I don't know, it does not look deep enough with big enough outer ridges for me.
The gp2x logo also does not look like a great grip.

I will wait to see what people say about the cap.

But as of now I think I will beg DaveC to bring back his cap as it is way better (at least it looks) and it does not have the crappy gp2x logo grip. It just looks stupid.

I kinda want Vektar and I need a new cap as mine came off recently after putting it im my pocket. Seeing as DaveCs caps are currently unavalible this is probably the best I'll get. the only thing is that I have to wait 15more days for the game to be released... and then there's the fact that I'm still waiting for the carry case the GP32z promised me for preordering through them so I'm a bit less apt to buy anythingt from them untill I DO get it...

Never knew how complicated something like a little plastic cap could be.

I feel kinda bad for Craig since he went out of his way to make them and everything and i'm going to say this but i really dont like the lettering as the grip. I'm guna get vektar boxed anyway so I'll have one to see what it's like.

I'm in the same boat. But hey, if it works, it works!

Any word on how big the SD card is that Vektar comes on?

hmmm,
not a fan of the look, but coupled with the slotted connection, the lettering will make it easy to tell what direction you are hitting.

I'm thinking about getting Vektar, so it will be a nice bonus...

Well it looks good to me, so I have ordered one. Sent you a couple of quid so that should cover your fees.

It's great to see such positive comment from all the people on here when someone is going out of their way to help ;) Maybe people should reserve judgement until they have actually seen and used one?

I'm waiting to see what the feedback for this replacement is like before I buy it.

We aren't saying that it's bad, we are saying it looks bad. We are wery much entitled to our opinions.

It's nice to sell items and all, now will you be capable of replying to emails and picking up the phone? I've tried to reach you many times over the past week and no answer or any sign of life. Or maybe I just need to knock on your door in Newcastle to get an answer to my queries...

Perhaps whilst test driving the new cap Craig got sucked into a serious session of Galaga and can't stop.....

I have been using the cap for a week now and it's made the gameplay sooooooo much better. Beats the crap out of the original one.

The only thing I would change would be the letters on the front and replace it with 4 raised areas to indicatu up, down , left and right. With the cap having a half moon slot that fits onto the gp2x stick to stop it rotating, it should prevent players hitting the diagonals.

My Girlfriend also approves and says she can play Mario on Gnuboy.....so it must work.
