    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, or the panel was not originally designed to accomodate custom artwork. After adding custom artwork to your cart, look for the Fightstick Plexi that matches your Fighstick model.

    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 within the plunger for Sanwa OBSC or Seimitsu PS-14-KN pushbutton. Gently press downward to remove the cutouts.

    Sized for Hori RAP N Layout. Install Notes

    Hori RAP N (Black/Gold) Hori RAP N (Tekken 7 PS4/PS3) Hori RAP N (Tekken 7 Xbox One/Xbox 360) hori-ttt2-ps3a.jpg HORI-SCV-XB360.jpg
    RAP N Panel Template Kai layout, not DOA5 model (1.7Mb zip)

    Hori's models have varied in joystick and button placement.  This model adopts the "Kai" layout, which positions the joystick further left from the buttons. The modern Hori RAP series was not designed for custom artwork, so it requires removing the top artwork panel via hair-dryer or heat gun, the glue underneath the panel (what remains on the metal panel) via Goo-Gone or similar.  A 1/40" thin acrylic film is utilized for this.  Unfortunately, etching cannot be performed on this 1/40" acrylic. Click here for a visual reference of these Fightsticks new-window-icon.png.

    Options include 6 or 8 button Noir layout, removing Control Panel (often requested when using multi-console PCBs), removing the start/option button (hidden under the square lid) and removing bottom middle screw.

    Hori RAP N Install Step 1 Hori RAP N Install Step 2 Hori RAP N Install Step 3

    First, remove the panel screws with a 3mm hex key.  You will find that the panel pulls away from the housing easily.  Take care to remove the 5-pin harness from the joystick. Once the panel is separated from the housing, remove the wires from buttons.  Observe the wiring color to buttons, first row from top: Blue = [], Purple = /\, Grey = R1, Red = L1; second row: Orange = X, Yellow = O, Green = R2, Black = L2. Carefully lift the buttons from the panel by pinching in the tabs at left and right of each button and pushing up.

    Next you must remove the RAP N artwork panel.  The artwork is glued onto the metal panel.  To remove it, use a heat-gun or hair dryer, warming one corner of the panel until you are able to lift and separate the plastic from metal.

     Continue to use the heat gun on the underside of the plastic and slowly lift the plastic panel.  You may have some residue from the process, which you can clean using Goo-Gone or similar solution.

    You will re-use the screws on the RAP N to complete the installation; please do not throw them away. Place the panel back onto the plastic frame, then artwork, and finally plexi.  You can then reinstall buttons and wiring, then joystick.  Finally, replace screws and tighten using hex key.  

     Options

    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.

    REMOVING DEFAULT ELEMENTS

    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.

    1. Great Print, Slightly Misaligned

      The artwork came out beautifully, though I did notice that it was slightly misaligned in terms of where the screws went. With the replacement plexi I got to go over it it seems to bend up a bit on the sides with the artwork being aligned to the holes. It's a very minor thing, and isn't really all too visible, but it is worth noting. on Sep 21st 2018

    2. Pretty Good.

      The print came out way darker than I thought it would but that is my crappy monitors fault. The print has more of a matte finish than I expected but it looks good under the plexi. I will be ordering a few more prints soon as I was overall satisfied with the quality of the print work and cutting. on Apr 13th 2018

    3. Almost perfect

      Update from FA: Thank you for your review. We're looking into screw hole positioning button hole diameter, as there are similar reports of slight bending with the thinner plexi material.
      ---
      As far as image quality goes its perfect. The only flaw is that the screws holes were a little misaligned that the art and plexi were bending a bit. After some minor alteration it fits just fine and my little fix isnt at all visible. Over all I'm pretty happy with it. I hope this review will be helpful to the staff.
