    • Hori Official Street Fighter 6 Artwork: Do not submit this artwork for the Fightstick Alpha.

    Sized for Qanba Obsidian 2 with Official "Arch" Panel Mount Bracket. Install Notes

    The Qanba Obsidian 2 is the newest flagship model for Playstation 4/5. This model uses our .125" thick acrylic. Some important notes while installing and replacing your pushbuttons:

    Step 1 - Remove Top panel Screws Step 2 - Bottom Screws
    The original panel has artwork permanently attached to it. To replace the original panel, you must first remove 6 black stickers on top panel and epoxy glue below those stickers across the top and bottom area of the panel. You can re-use the existing screws if you are able to remove the epoxy, or you can purchase replacement screws in silver and black oxide. To access the internal wiring, use a Phillips head-screwdriver to unscrew the 6 screws on the bottom panel.  A screw is hidden behind a white warranty tamper sticker. The Obsidian 2 features a cover for the joystick shaft. Using a flathead screwdriver, place it between the shaft groove and then begin turning the balltop. This will allow you to unscrew a balltop or battop.
    Step 4 - Wiring Obsidian 2 Bare Panel: Remove screws to replace it.

    Once the bottom panel is removed, make note of the button wiring.  The guide shows the wire colors for each button when the panel is upside down, the orientation you are likely to have when installing new buttons, installing the Noir metal replacement panel, or before replacing the plexi panel.

    Screwbuttons such Sanwa OBSN, or Seimutsu PS-14-GN/KN may fit the Obsidian 2, as top buttons' proximity to the control PCB is not as close as the original Obsidian. That said, you may have varying results with screwbuttons fitting within the Vewlix style layout. Also note that the slightly larger Seimitsu PS-14-G pushbuttons may have trouble fitting in this panel.

    Shown here is the original top plexi panel removed.  It is here that you will replace the original panel with the Qanba Obsidian 2 "arch" panel mount bracket. To replace the metal panel with the arch model, use a small Phillips screwdriver to remove the six screws that surround the metal panel.  Install your arch panel in its place, and reattach the screws.

    The green circle in the above illustration represents a unique screw area for the replacement plexi. We will cover this in the next step.

    Note that the replacement metal panel contains cut-outs around the button holes. Snapbuttons such as Sanwa OBSF will attach to the plexi panel, not the metal panel.  Instead, the cutouts in the metal panel will dictate which orientation your buttons install. Keep this in mind when installing artwork in the button insert cap, as it may need to rotate to match the button tab position when reinstalled. 

    Optional Screw Install

     

    With the original panel removed, place the paper artwork first, the the clear plexi atop. Begin replacing the buttons and reattaching the wires. Reapply your balltop.

    If you are replacing the screws with our aftermarket silver or black screws, please note that the top middle screw hole is manufactured differently from the other screw holes.  Because of this, you will want to choose the Obsidian 2 specific screw pack, and install the single 1.5 inch long screw into this hole. The screw is longer and designed to bore into the plastic a bit deeper than the 3/8 inch screws.

     

    Durable Configuration. Laser Cut Layout

    The Obsidian top panel is constructed using resilient clear acrylic, and layout is cut to precision with a laser etching device.

    Options Help

    You have several options to personalize your control panel, such as button layout, removal of control panel or screws in some models

    Jump to: LAYOUT | REMOVING DEFAULT ELEMENTS

    Plexi Color, Thickness

    Below are visual examples of available acrylic colors and thicknesses.  Not all colors are available for each thickness, nor are the materials and thicknesses accessible for each Fightstick model. Some colors come in a specific thickness, and are too thin or thick to install properly on the Fightstick. Additionally, some material thicknesses do not allow for full etch, as the material can warp from the laser. 

    When multiple colors and thicknesses are available for your Fightstick model, you will find them within the options list.

    Plexi Thickness

    Plexi Thickness: .75mm thin acrylic
    Plexi Thickness: 1.5mm thick acrylic
    Plexi Thickness: 3mm thick acrylic

    Plexi Color and Texture

    Plexi Texture: Clear
    Plexi texture: Black Gloss
    Plexi texture: Black Matte
    Plexi texture: White Gloss
    Plexi texture:White Matte
    Clear (.75mm, 1.5mm, 3mm) 
    Black Gloss (1.5mm, 3mm)
    Black Matte (3mm only)
    White Gloss (3mm only)
    White Matte (3mm only)

    Notes about Black Matte, White Matte & White Gloss

    Black Matte Sample 1: No Etching
    Black Matte is available in .125" (3mm) thickness only. This color and material texture can be purchased without etching. For AllFightsticks models, you can use the black matte plexi panel as a full replacement for the metal panel.
    White Matte: Sample 1
    White Matte: Sample 2
    White Gloss and White Matte is available in .125" (3mm) thickness only. For AllFightsticks models, you can use the white matte plexi panel as a full replacement for the metal panel.

    White acrylic is also semi translucent - about 80% opacity. You could place a brightly colored artwork underneath for a cool effect.

    Layout Configuration

    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
    8 Button Vewlix
    First 6 Buttons
    Last 6 Buttons
    7 Button Vewlix

    Removing Default Elements 

    Some Fightsticks, such as the popular MadCatz TE, offer additional personalization options by removing default elements such as control panel, start button, or screws.  Cut options are defaulted to their authentic counterpart, displayed as [YES (default)] in the options list.  For example, a MadCatz TE, the default configuration is to have the turbo/guide portion of the control panel cut, so that the control panel can fit properly.  You have the option to select [NO] to prevent cutting these areas.  

    Cut Control Panel? [NO]
    Cut Start Buttons [NO]
    Cut Middle and/or Bottom Screws? [NO]
    Cut Control Panel? [NO]
    Cut Start Button? [NO]
    Cut Middle and/or Bottom Screws? [NO]

    Cut Control Panel? [NO] - If you own a MadCatz TE, and installed a PS360+, you may no longer need the Turbo/Guide area of the control panel, located at top left.  This option allows you to remove the Turbo/Guide portion.  Please note that you MUST remove the actual control panel on the TE by unscrewing it before applying the plexi, or you risk damaging the plexi.  Also, please make certain to select this option if you are also choosing to have artwork printed, or the plexi and artwork won't match.

    Cut Start Button? [NO] - On some joysticks - such as the Qanba Q4 - the start button is directly on the panel.  You can select to have this removed.  You can also select this should you desire a panel similar to the Eightarc Fusion or Synthesis series Fightstick, as the start button is moved elsewhere.  Again, this option is available on specific joysticks.

    Cut Middle and/or Bottom Screws? [NO] - Selecting "no" on this option allows you to remove the middle top and bottom screw holes on specific joysticks, either for a cleaner appearance or to avoid rubbing your wrist against the screw.  Please reconsider this option if you intend to have a full panel etch on your plexi, as etching physically changes portions of the plexi due to heat.  In this case, it is best to leave the screw holes in place in order to keep the panel securely positioned.
