    Anyone have a template for sanwa buttons?

    Are you requesting an individual file for clear Sanwa buttons?
    Most templates you download for artwork purposes will be PSD files with multiple layers and will have an individual layer for the button holes.
    You'll find downloads for all of those templates (and links to many more) on the first page of this topic.

    Oh, I didn't know that. Thanks, I'll check one out.

    Ok, I just tried 5 different templates, and none of them had layers for the button art.

    I just wanted to keep my VX SA as simple as possible and I really liked the new SFV Ryu image. Plus the original art on my stick is turning yellow and starting to peel. I guess I'm going to have to spend $25 at Tek-Innovations for a plexi and artwork :smiley: Are they still a good option?

    Such a simple design. I approve!

    Do I understand properly if I say that if I want to use this image with Art's Hobbies Photoshop template, I need to find a version that is way way way bigger?

    If the answer if yes, how do I go about finding it? I just need to hope that it exists somewhere? Thanks!

    Edit: I poked around with my 0 Photoshop skills and looks like the image is fine at this size!

    does anyone have a template that looks like the hori vlx kuro?

    edit: forgot to mention i wanted this for the vlx template
  • TenshoTensho Joined: Posts: 2,884
    Nope, it's not like the black/grey Vewlix-l art, it's all new so no one would have it, I'm sure someone could make it if you requested a commission and told them exactly how you want it.

    @poisonmar Raphael just because I'm getting sick of everyone using the same exact SF5 Art.
  • poisonmarpoisonmar Joined: Posts: 445

    @poisonmar Do Raph, and change the "RAP" logo to say "RAPH" :D

    Hahaha that's a great idea. I need to do that.

    Yes, you need one that is larger and no that image is not fine at that size.

    Following the instruction of not changing the size of the template and inserting my image on the right layer and placing it where I want it gives me this:

    I did something wrong?

    You can't change the template size but you can make Chun bigger. Click on her layer and hit control+T. This will allow you to resize her. Make her whatever size you need. Once you are done, double click on the zoom/magnifying tool. This will zoom at the exact print size quality and will allow you to check Chun's print quality and figuere out if you've stretched her too much. If she looks blurry The you need to make her smaller or find larger image.

    Protip number 1: if she's too blurry re insert the image and resize as opposssed to just making smaller again. Image stretching degrades the image quality.

    Protip number 2: always uses the double click on zoom tool to check print quality. And move around without zooming out by holding SPACE bar .

    The issue is if you used that original image, resized it, and printed it out at 300 DPI, it would end up being quite blurry.

    Thank you very much for the help guys! I finally grasp how it works. I found the same image in a gigantic version and when checking the print, it is now very good looking. I changed the blue of her outfit to pink to fit the few pink Seimitsu buttons and balltop I got. Now to hope that the plexi and template for HRAP4 Kai will be added to Art's Hobbies!

    Move the photo on the left further left to where the gun barrel isn't cut off and perhaps raise it a tiny bit. Not only will it be more visible when it's in use, but a button rim won't get in the way of the tip of the shot. If the photo is required to be there for any particular background placement, you could just shorten the barrel of the gun a few centimeters.

    Do keep in mind the rim of the button will stick out a tiny bit further than the holes show.

    This is the most i could do without making the dirt at the bottom raise up too much.

    @poisonmar - I really like the "Hori RAPH VX-SA" artwork.

    That looks good. :-)

    Do you plan on having a clear dustwasher?
    The black background ink around the joystick won't show (much) with a black dustwasher so if you want it to blend in you might want to make it bigger.

    Also, if you're going plexi instead of lamilabel/vinyl it'd be great to skip the start button and repurpose it somewhere on the stick base. Don't know if you have the skills for that but it'd make the artwork even better.

    Yes i have a clear dustwasher, a small one i had a friend make that doesnt cover as much but does its job. also as for the start button i have no idea how to do that, im a very inexperienced modder, but i have a lot of fun with it so i want to learn more. maybe switching the start button would be a good project for me. Also or reference this art is going on the new ps4 vlx. cant wait.

    Question, is the template for the Madcatz TE2 on the first page the same for all versions of the stick? I have the guilty gear Xrd PS3/PS4 TE2 and want to make sure there's not a difference between the Xbone version or something

    Tried to make my own artwork. What do you guys think? I just couldn't think of any background at all so I just splatted paint. Any tips or advice?

  • FreedomGundamFreedomGundam Freedom, ikimasu! Joined: Posts: 2,531
    @Vegeas Very nice, but the main problem is that the paint splatter is super-sharp and crisp, whereas your artwork is (understandably) not.
    I'd recommend inking your artwork and coloring it digitally (even in grayscale), so that it can be just as sharp.

    Slow day for me, kinda lame but I don't play P4AU and needed new art that matches the blue side panels so American Dee Jay it is.

    Kinda like the old school woodstock vibe I tried to give it. Any thoughts on what I can add?
