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.
The art cover replacement top panel offers one of the best ways to customize your joystick. The plexiglass sits atop specially cut artwork, allowing you to add or replace new custom artwork to match your joystick theme.
Sized for Hori Fighting Edge for PS3 and Xbox 360. Install Notes
The Hori Fighting Edge is one of the company's largest Fightsticks save for the enormous arcade authentic Hori VLX series. The control panel itself is quite large - over 18 inches wide. The plexi used is .060", which is slightly thinner than the original, but still fits flush when used with printed artwork. The Fighting Edge's signature feature - the touchpad - will also remain intact with the replacement plexi, and will continue to function. Some important notes while installing and replacing your pushbuttons:
|The original panel is secured by six hex screws. Use a 4mm hex key to remove them (note: a 2.5mm or MadCatz 3mm hex key is too small). Unlike many Hori Fightsticks, the Edge uniquely has a paper artwork. Unless you need a replacement plexi or desire etching, you can reuse your existing plexi. The same goes for the existing screws.
Unscrew the six bottom panel with a philips screwdriver. Make note of the original order of wiring and colors, including one ground for each command button:
- LP = Blue
- MP = Yellow
- HP = Purple
- PPP = White
- LK = Red
- MK = Green
- HK = Orange
- KKK = Grey
Worth noting as questions about the template may come up. In the template, you will notice that the top and bottom screw holes are larger than others on the control panel. This is to accomodate the black spacer that appears in these two positions, and aren't elsewhere on the control panel. Doing this prevents the artwork from potentially pinching in the screw hole.
Also worth mentioning is the PS3/XB360 control panel at top left. The Edge's circular panel is not easily removed as the panel is integrated into the Fightstick mold. That is why we don't currently offer its removal. That said if enough feedback warrants it, that option will be included.
Durable Configuration. Laser Cut Layout
The Hori Fighting Edge top panel is constructed using resilient clear acrylic, and layout is cut to precision with a laser etching device.
Color Coordinate: Hori Edge Plexi Accessories
During testing, we learned that accessory screws such as the M4x12mm TE Plexiglass Screws will fit into the Hori Fighting Edge. These would replace the existing Fighting Edge screws, which require a 4mm hex key to open. The addition of these accessory screws allow for several color combinations that help to match your color scheme. Please note that the M4x12mm TE Plexiglass screws use the 2.5mm Long Arm Hex Key.
You 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.
Each Fightstick has its own characteristics, with some sharing similar elements, such as the popular Vewlix button layout. We will specify what options are available for each Fightstick. Below are the most common button layout configurations:
8 Button Vewlix
First 6 Buttons
Last 6 Buttons
7 Button Vewlix
