    While not an exact tutorial for Sanwa OBSC buttons, this helpful tutorial for Seimitsu PS-14 G buttons will clarify some of the steps needed to install custom artwork into a Sanwa clear plunger.  (Tip suggested by SRK's Maximiliano)

    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. Great buttons

      great buttons. feel satisfying to press. they are a little light to the touch so be careful brushing over top of the buttons. on Jun 10th 2019

    2. Working as intended

      No squeaky noises on presses. Everything working as intended. Only thing that bugged me was that it was hard to get through the holes but I guess that's what happens with new buttons. on Jan 7th 2019

    3. Nice product, fast delivery.

      Nice product, fast delivery. on Oct 28th 2017

    4. Great

      A really good product, I'm glad they have this color, I was able to build a clear fightstick on Aug 13th 2017

    5. Good

      Its good it works very well if you are trying to just find a push button for your START/SELECT buttons and would like to add custom art. Also the go to if you are building a hitbox style "stick" and want to add art into the buttons. on Mar 27th 2017
