superb!
André is right, don't hesitate to give the colors a little boost compared to the ones on the orginal CPO you own.

Yup. Here's a reminder from my Puckman CPO:


The parts around the holes had been covered, not only by the buttons, but even still by the original protective film of the CPO vinyl.
The differences with the colors that have been in the "open air" are pretty clear Smiley

True, but thisone is silkscreened on the bottom of the plexi. so just light was exposed to it , and not "hand dirt", but you are right.

anyway , i will find a cool color combi, because as you can see that the griders in my old CPO are orange (also ingame by the way) and on the bezel they are purple..
so there is 2 sides of the knive here..
the ingame griders are orange, wich could be seen as "original" but the bezel and sidearts are purple, like donkey kong instead of Crazy Kong..
i like more the purple to be honest..

i think i will do the matching with the bezel, that should look the best i think..

Digging this old thread for a good reason.

On saturday Etienne and I talked about the Crazy Kong and it turned out that we both did the same work.....vectorize the controlpanel artwork  Tongue
I really should have signed in earlier here!!

We said we would compare the two versions and combine them for a perfect solution BEFORE both of us have them printed.

So, here's large JPG I exported from CorelDraw (I drew the CPO with it).

What's your opinion, gentlemen? I know I have to adjust the colours!!

PS: I've also done a separate instruction card because my original panel had that window. I just can't find it at the moment  Huh?

Thanks Luigi !

I believe that Robin's CK also has this panel, and according to him there was an original donkey kong instruction card behind it..

And the CPO's are ready, i just picked them up from the printers.

They are printed in the same way as the Galaxian Bezel i did for Bela.

Nicely packed, as i am used from them  Kiss




They only spelled my name wrong  Cheesy




Well, who cares, as long as the quality is good !




This time i dont want to "open" the protective layer, so if you want to see the quality, check the galaxian threat Wink




I tried to take a pic with backlight to see something, but i think we need to wait to see it when its installed..



For those who are interested, the printer this is printed on is a Epson Stylus Pro GS 6000 Solvent Ink Printer Kiss

mwa, its only 25.000 US$...   Grin

strange though, on the NL website they say its € 26.174  which is 35.934 US$  Shocked
If you take out the taxes (that are included in the NL webpage and recalculate, its still 29.105 US$)

About the hard vectoring; You know the answer already..

no problem  Wink

Well, everything in Europe is more expensive for a couple of reasons.
First being TAX TAX TAX and second MORE TAX....
and then there's the problem of lots of small or even smaller countries (compared to the US) which require more distributors etc. etc.

Apart from that, I also think we always simply get screwed over here....

Anyway....GREAT Smiley

What's the lower one with 3 holes in the middle?  It looks like it matches Astro Wars but isn't the same style as the AW picture I have or the one on the flyer. Astro Wars was Right/Left/Fire so I'm curious about the 3 holes...
