I recently stumbled upon an SE Fightstick in a Gamestop a few days ago. While working on custom art for myself, I noticed that the stick looked great as a 6 button instead of the default 8. Cutting off the 2 buttons on the edge allowed for a better design as well as a clearner looking stick.
Now, I know how to cover the button holes using a more permanant method (Using a cut out of Aluminum, Plastic, etc., and covering the holes from the inside) which would result in a very strong barrier… but I’m not quite sure I want to get rid of the last two slots indefinitely.
Laminated art is typically either really firm, or really flexible – both of which will not work for the SE due to the fact that it is not a slanted stick, but has a slant cutoff instead. What I want to know is what material or laminate can withstand slight pressure without warping into the shape of the hole. Not exactly a button masher, but I don’t want to accidently put pressure and ruin the art.
Has anyone done this using just laminated art?
