I think that's a good choice. My other preference is number 9.

Where is the picture of your cab, need to tie it in. Also what cab is it, weirdest dimensions I've seen for CPO.

the control panel area is 39cm x 60cm with the front bend included, even the button layout is weird on it, it doesnt have the typical curve for p1-b1-6/p2-b1-6 that you usually have.

heres a fairly clear head on shot of it. heres the same kind of unit but not mine (no coin ops/vertical/differnt buttons)

the cabinet is a Challenger type. this is a side-on view of the cab type

the side of mine has decals too but i plan to remove them and maybe replace later, since one is badly sun damaged pic

I like 10 more then 9 tbh, i thought you may have been referring to 9 though, the problem i have with 9 is the buttons will likely obstruct peach and marios faces :/

ah, so that's what those circles represent (I'm clueless). The button also substantially wipes out the guy on the left in number 6....

Number 10 might be best? Can you manipulate number 6 so that the guy doesn't get a button in his guts?

Ahh okay.

I like a bit more simple artwork on my CPO as the buttons wipe most of it out.

I found a higher res which gives some wiggle room but without cutting off a significant amount of the character, the joystick will still obstruct scorpion somewhat, that doesnt bother me too much as long as its obviously still that character.

with number 9, if i chose that one Id want the marquee to have the same sort of light rays effect in the background.

yeah they sure do. I could go the plain pressed metal route, but the whole unit would look plain without side artwork. I dont really want to put any side art on tho.

You need to find somebody artistic to do you a custom graphic....

The idea of this thread was to help me decide which one to choose, but with no overall liked one, i might have to just go with the one i personally like most.

which is 5 or 10, or 4,6 and 7 >_< ack I like too many

That's because you haven't got anything yucky in your selection. Any of them would look nice.

Do this: Go through them all and print them out and put them over where they'll go. Stand back and judge the effect of the general colour and design. Exclude any that don't impress, or that will have too much "wrecked" by buttons.

For what's left, put their numbers on a piece of paper and do a draw. If you feel disappointed when you pick the "wrong" one, you'll know which one you really like best. Otherwise, just pick one at random.

(There's probably a reason the original is just a general design rather than a graphic, it's hard to get the effect of a design if it's chopped out by buttons and obscured by sticks)

Haven't had the time to work on this for a good while until today.

This is the CPO I've decided to go ahead with in the end.



I've kept the bg art fairly muted so the CPO's line features stay prominent.

I'll probably do an economy grayscale print of the actual size on paper to make sure it all lines up before placing the order for the laminated adhesive vinyl
