    Please Read Before You Order

    Below is important information to know before placing a custom order with us:

    • Project L Official Artwork: Do not submit the PNG samples. Instead, please download the zipped Photoshop PSD version, unzip the file and integrate them into our artwork templates new-window-icon.png for your desired fightstick model
    • Hori Official Street Fighter 6 Artwork:  Please do not submit this artwork for the Fightstick Alpha. It is not compatible with our print and cut, as it contains registration marks that cannot be removed. If you wish to have the artwork printed only, you can use our Non-Commercial Fightstick Panel Artwork Print service. 
    • Hori Official Tekken 8 Artwork. We can print and cut most of Hori's official Tekken 8 artwork, as they revised the artwork files to allow removing the registration marks. Exception is artwork for Jun Kazama which has registration marks that cannot be removed.
    • Custom Orders do Not Ship Separately: If you place an order for a personalized product along with non-custom products, such as arcade part or merchandise, please note that all items will ship together.

    Plexi Requirements
    Please note that this plexi will fully replace this Fightstick's metal panel. It is not designed to sit atop the metal panel. If you are purchasing artwork, you will also need to purchase the replacement panel to protect it.

    Control panel artwork represents one of the most convenient means to personalize your fightstick, giving it a new look almost immediately. 

    High Resolution, Color Fidelity

    Artwork prints are developed using a top-of-the-line commercial printer, offering vivid, professional-quality artwork replication. The printer is capable of resolution of 1200dpi (dots per inch), and 8 color ink system (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, K(Black) + Light Cyan, Light Magenta and White) reproduces artwork over a wide color range.

    Artwork is printed on 10 mil cardstock sheet. It carries 95% brightness and tensile strength of 100 pounds per inch.

    Each print is laser cut to your specifications, as presented by available options. You will receive the print with perforated button inserts designed to fit your chosen button brand. In some cases, such as the Mayflash series, the control panel elements may also have perforated cuts. Gently press downward to remove the cutouts.

    Important Notes about Color Fidelity, Brightness

    • Please do not change the RGB color space of our templates to CYMK when submitting your artwork. Our templates are intentionally designed in the RGB color space to best match most customer's screen expectations, and will typically convert CYMK to RGB when printing. We will not honor demands to reprint artwork whose template is changed to CYMK color space.
    • Unless properly calibrated to your printer and viewing environment, your monitor does not accurately represent the brightness of paper. Artwork submissions may need adjustment to ensure prints are not too dark. Please read this helpful support article for more information

    Sized for Agetec HKT-7300 for Sega Dreamcast

    Agetec HKT-7300
    Agetec Dreamcast HKT-7300 Replacement Panel Template
    (Replaces metal panel 1.9Mb zip)

    The original metal panel found on the HKT-7300 only fits the slightly smaller pushbuttons provided with the original hardware, and does not accomodate 30mm buttons unless widened with a Dremel or similar tool. The 1.5mm plexi replacement panel is designed to fit 30mm snap buttons across Sanwa, Seimitsu, and GamerFinger. 


    Note that this install will replace the original metal panel. Also note that the original button harness and connectors are not compatible with standard buttons with a .110" terminal.  You must either replace the wiring entirely, or remove the connectors by cutting them, stripping the wire and attaching a quick disconnect.  Alternatively, you can purchase the .110" Button to Agetec HKT-7300 Harness Adapter (6-Pack).  Save 25% when you select this option.

    Agetec HKT-7300 Replacement Panel Assembly: Step 1 Agetec HKT-7300 Replacement Panel Assembly: Step 2
    We start with the bottom panel; you will remove six screws to access the original buttons and wiring inside. Please excuse the condition of the presented model as it was purchased specifically for teardown. With the bottom removed, take note of the original button wiring. Each action button (X, Y, Z, A, B, C) is attached to a plastic connector that contains wiring and a daisy chain ground, and held into place with a resin glue. To install standard buttons such as Sanwa which uses a .110" terminal, you must either replace the wiring, or remove the connectors by cutting them, stripping the wire and attaching a quick disconnect. Alternatively, you can purchase the .110" Button to Agetec HKT-7300 Harness Adapter (6-Pack).

    With the original Agetec wiring disconnected from each button, we now move to the top metal panel. You will need a T-10 Torx screwdriver to unscrew the seven screws across the top and bottom of the plate. You will remove the joystick ball top and dustwasher, and then proceed to lift the metal plate from the plastic housing.  It is easier to keep the original buttons on, as they are initially difficult to access until the panel is lifted. With the panel removed, the plastic housing of the HKT-7300 is exposed.  The existing holes present in the housing are able to accommodate 30mm pushbuttons. It is here that you will first install new custom artwork, followed by the replacement panel.
    Agetec HKT-7300 Replacement Panel Assembly: Step 5 Agetec HKT-7300 Replacement Panel Assembly:Step 6
    Here, the custom artwork and replacement plexi panel are in place. You can now return the original screws, plus install your snap buttons, plus desired dustwasher, balltop or battop. The panel is designed with a slight indentation over each button hole of the original housing, allowing you to snap most 30mm buttons into place.  Here, the replacement buttons are installed, along with dustwasher and balltop. If you had purchased our upcoming button adapters (not yet available at the time of writing this tutorial), you can install each one onto the .110" button terminals, with the other end attaching to the Agetec wiring harness connector.  We will also offer a Sanwa JLF to PCB adapter that allows you to install a Sanwa JLF-TP-8TY joystick lever components (TPMA PCB, shaft, etc.) into the existing lever mounting bracket.

    In this photograph, you can see which buttons were tested to fit into the replacement panel. Note that some screwbuttons may not work with the panel due to the HKT-7300's internal housing and button spacing.  The screw button ring must manage to thread onto the very bottom of the screw button in order to stay in place, as they will not fit into the limited space that surrounds each button. 


    Often, you will have several options to personalize your control panel, such as button layout, removal of control panel or screws in some models, button label etching, and text etching.


    Cut Button Inserts

    Plexworks Diagram: Button Artwork Cut Size Comparison

    Pushbutton manufacturers such as Sanwa, Seimitsu, Crown and GamerFinger have each produced specific models with a clear or translucent plastic cap and flat plunger.  These are often used to display a graphical insert, allowing you to enhance the button's appearance.  That said, each button manufacturer has designed the artwork cap with a different diameter than their competitors. For example, GamerFinger's artwork cap has a diameter that is slightly larger than Seimitsu or Sanwa.  An insert cut for a Sanwa artwork cap will fit loosely when inserted into the GamerFinger artwork cap.  This is an undesirable result that can produce a white or colored ring around the insert. 

    Now, you can choose the button insert cut to match the pushbutton you intend to use.  This allows the insert to fit snugly within the cap.

    Brands and Model with Artwork Caps

    In some instances, a button brand or model does not have a 24mm equivalent with art cap.  In this case, we will cut to the default size of Sanwa 24mm insert.

    Please note that if you later intend to purchase a different button, you may need to get new button inserts or new artwork. If you are uncertain which button you may choose, Sanwa is chosen by default.

    24 vs 30mm

    When processing orders, a frequent mistake we found among new players is choosing the wrong size for action buttons, such as punch and kick.

    Within the fighting game genre, Japanese arcade buttons commonly consist of two diameter sizes: 24 millimeter and 30 milllimeter (mm). In most configurations, 30mm represents your action button.  These are front facing, appearing most prominent on your Fightstick control panel.  Option button, such as "Start", "Select", or more recently "Option", "Touch", or "Share" are usually 24mm.

    UPDATE: Owners of Neo Geo AES Joysticks will need 24mm pushbuttons instead of 30mm (Thanks SRK's DEZALB)

    Below is a visual representation of a common Fightstick control panel.  Throughout this article, we will mark 24mm in green, and 30mm in Orange.

    Checking the Proper Size

    button-30mm.pngAnother way that players can misinterpret the pushbutton size is by measuring the pushbutton plunger.  Have a look at the diagram at right.

    The plunger - the part that you press down to represent an input - is 25mm or a bit smaller in most 30mm pushbuttons.  Often this leads to the conclusion that one needs a 24mm button and not 30mm.

    Similarly measuring the button rim can lead to confusion, as it is intentionally larger than the button hole it is placed in.  You don't want to use these measurements.  Instead, review the button housing diameter, or the hole the button will be placed in.  You can do this with a caliper - a digital caliper is often quite helpful for this and other arcade-related projects.

    Control Panel Configuration

    Most Fightsticks from MadCatz, Hori, Qanba, and similar will use these two sizes.  How the buttons are used will depend on the model joystick that you own. Over time, we'll provide example configurations for specific popular Fightstick models and arcade cabinets using the color key for 24mm (green) and 30mm (orange).  We'll also expand the key for future models if another size is introduced, and we offer for sale.

    1. Exactly what I was expecting.

      The order went extremely smoothly. The artwork was what I wanted, and they accepted my request to not cut out the VMU. Once I decide what artwork I want for my 2nd Agetec, I will be placing another order. on Aug 1st 2021
