    Important: 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 products will ship together.  We ask for a minimum of 7-10 business days to process custom orders and prepare for shipping, as we often have a large queue, and personalized orders require additional processing work.  If you desire to receive your non-custom products earlier, then please place two separate orders.  This will allow the non-custom orders to ship within our normal 1-2 business days.


    Plexi Requirements
    Please note that artwork for this Fightstick requires a plexiglass replacement. The original Fightstick panel contains artwork that is permanently attached to it, the panel was not originally designed to accomodate custom artwork, or did not come with a plexi panel. After adding custom artwork to your cart, look for the Fightstick Plexi that matches your Fighstick model.

    Existing AllFightSticks customers: If you purchased an AllFightSticks enclosure with a plexi top from allfightsticks.com, you do not need to purchase a custom plexi top.

    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 6 color ink system (Cyan Magenta Yellow K(Black) + Light Cyan, Light Magenta and White) reproduces artwork over a wide color range, whether submitted as RGB or CMYK.

    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 insert cutouts designed to fit your chosen brand. Gently press downward to remove the cutouts.

    Designed for MadCatz TE-2, Adjusted for 1/16" Plexi

    The artwork print is cut specifically for the MadCatz T.E.2 and T.E.2+ Fightstick for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.

    Please note that the artwork layout differs from the newer generation layout, which lays the plexi atop and around the buttons.  The artwork will fit our Generation 1 1/16" Adjusted T.E.2, T.E.2+ plexi option, which more traditionally lays the plexi below the button.  More information about these differences are available in our support section.

    Options include removing the turbo/control panel (make certain you are removing this panel prior to ordering a print of this configuration.).  Other options include Vewlix button layout.  Optionally, you can add artwork for the two 24mm "Guide" and "Menu/Back" buttons positioned to the back of the T.E.2.

     

     Options

    You have additional options to personalize your control panel, such as button layout, or removal of control panel or screws (when applicable).  If you are also purchasing a custom or pre-made control panel plexi for this artwork, be sure to match the layout and configurations.

    8 Button Vewlix
    First 6 Buttons
    Last 6 Buttons

    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.

    4. Great quality and easy to install

      Only took an hour to install this beauty. on May 30th 2017

    5. Good Material and Easy to Install

      Was a good thickness and didn't move around after dropping in, however the pattern I had for the buttons wasn't a great idea since when the pieces were cut they all kind of looked alike until you started fitting the caps back on... lol. I would probable recommend using a thin piece of foam to the top of the artwork though since the cardboard did get pushed into it making a crease during shipment but it's not really noticeable once you drop in the plexiglass.
