-= MORTAL KOMBAT - MK I - 6 Button CPO 300dpi print-ready pngs =-
« on: September 29, 2013, 01:52:41 pm »
Hi Guys - here we go....


As noone was able to provide the nicely done 7 Btn vector CPO from the related thread i forced my old fingerbones to do some work and am proud 2 present those

-= MORTAL KOMBAT - 6 Button CPO 300dpi print-ready pngs =-

  • Source: Hi Res Scan from Midway factory original 5 button CPO
  • File: 32bit png, 300dpi, original b/w ratio, 32 mb each, 7985 Ũ 3977 Pixel
  • Done: Add that 6th Button we Mame addicts are craving in proper alignment, make the Button layout work, some PS remastering including detail work on the figures, removing of a few small scan artifacts, some polishing, o.c. no color correction.


All in all i think this png is closer to the original one than the vector file - especially providing the original spotted background.

I did a few versions - feel free to dl, modify and print:


- "original" Ver

- Alt Ver 2 "plain"

If anyone can give me a real reason for a 7th Button (for Mk3 i use the lower block as run) - i can do a 7 Btn layout too.
Any other modification wanted - just ask nicely.....

-= WIP bartop version for matt4949 =-

Man - i really would love to be doin this one with vektor file!!!!!!!


Target: Modifiied, still 300dpi CPO with original sized controls in place fitting the small panel - 8 inches high (original about 13 inches high)

A few hours later....

Done: Calculation of res, create proper design in mind, create proper 300dpi res dragons and MK font-logo, put in place and at the end of the cakewalk make the spotted background pattern work  :banghead: so nothing looks copy and pasted  :dizzy:

... a fitting background

Thank you THANKYOU. I sent you an E-mail and I hope you haven't been staying up late because of me. The CP looks great and I printed it off in black and white and it fits fine.  Hopefully you can make the changes I requested but if not I will be very pleased and definately keep this one.

Hi matt!

What i need to know:

- Are the controls (centers of buttons / joy) alligned right or do i have to move them up or down a bit.
- If you want the P1 and P2 Start gfx please specify exact center of buttons, though i think as your panel is rather slim those would overload it a bit and my personal feeling - it would be looking better with the buttons left alone. - However we can try to make it work and decide afterwards.


p.s. its a pity you didnt post your gr8 drawings - could have been mine :)

Maybe I should post my drawings:)
Any ways the controls are in the right place and I think you are right, I am gonna move the start gfx to the face of the CP with the $ coin buttons. I'm thinking about using using a coin return slot/button for the coin buttons.
Only problem I'm having is when I scale up the WIP bartop version to 26 inch by 8 inch the dpi goes down to 30   
and looks very grainy.

DONT USE THE ATTACHED FILE FOR FINAL PRINT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This one is reduced to 1/10 res - resulting in 30dpi.
 
As i stated above i will upload the fullresfile as soon as possible - i think about this evening 10pm cet.

I think for your configuration having the 1 and 2 Player Start on the face would be perfect.
I was thinking of the original Midway Fontlogo on your faceplate.

If you want i can add this to your cp so you can print it at once and it should fit nicely (as long as you dont have to keep the cp removeable from face).

Glad u like my work,
greets from austria,
R.

This is awesome! So I'm not the only one playing MK in a SF2 cabinet.  :lol Maybe I'll just change the bottom blocking-guy icon to a running-guy icon and it'll be all set for MK3. Thanks Rodman :cheers:

Does a PSD of this file exist ?
I'd actually like to use the dragons for a MK inspired project.
Any help would be great.

This control panel is awesome.
Thank you for sharing.

Hi MB!
Glad you like my work - really taken some nightshifts  :blah: - mainly because this is
pure raster work and thus no vector files do in any way exist!
However its high res full 300dpi - and as it is is based on a high res scan from an midway factory CPO scan which i did remaster it as close to the original as you can get...
esp. the spotted background can not (in any acceptable way when it comes to time) originally be rebuilt vector style.

The dragons in their full res can be relatively easyly be extracted and used for whateverf you need....
Which dragons are you talking about - the ones on the side?

Regards,
R.

DUH ME!
I missed the links in the 1st post, so I just downloaded all three versions.
Very cool/good work.

I was wondering about a PSD for the ease of extracting certain elements.

- Glad u have em now (maybe i go and highlight the links somewhen...)

- As i never really got close to PS i am using maily GIMP and - because its not very userfriendly and some features are missing/really not the way i am used to use em - another 2-3 little tools like play with pictures and sometimes even MS Paint. As most of us i have to be super correct and thoughtful @ work the whole day and thus i work a bit sloppy when it comes to the fun-only part meaning there are typically no layer-based wip files saved (though i really really really really really should  ;)) as long as the result is 100%.

Looks great! Im a fan of the original one. I am starting to do some work on my mk1 cabinet and I wanted to go 7 buttons to support mk3 and the other fighting games. Let me know if you are willing to create one with this layout. Again looks great.

Hi skottles!

I for myself dont like the placement of the 7th button at all - thats why i (and many many others) use the lower middle button (secondary block) as run...

Please tell me if you indeed would like the 7th button placed as known from mk3 - i would do it for you.

Understandable. I want to use my MK cabinet for all versions of MK, KI, and Street Fighter.

donnie1979 created a 7 button overlay, but the link no longer works. I like the look of it and seems like it is the best compromise between games. This is his design:



If you are willing to share your psd/ai file I can work on it and share it with others when I am done.

I have never had custom artwork printed.  Do I just have one of the CPOs printed to the standard control panel size for Mortal Kombat machines (13 1/4" x 26 5/8")?  Will it scale properly that way?

Hi testicle!

Exactly!
Just have it printed to the standard CP size (metric that would be 68x34cm) and voila.  :cheers:
DO NOT, i repeat DO NOT add extra size just to make sure its not gonna be too small on any side without adding the same amount in the file !!!!
This will stretch the image and lead to anything but a perfect fit to the holes (that damn rookie mistake cost myself a ton of neurons  :badmood: :banghead: )

If you wanna make sure (some of the "original" MK cabs are told to be bastarded other machines) measure for each hole the ratio border-holecenter/lenght (or width) and compare with the one in file (pixeldistance pointer from upper/left border can be easily read f.i. in MS paint).   
I would highly recomend to do it because its gonna take 10mins and possibly save you from major disapontments...

Regards,

R.

I have never had custom artwork printed.  Do I just have one of the CPOs printed to the standard control panel size for Mortal Kombat machines (13 1/4" x 26 5/8")?  Will it scale properly that way?

Hi testicle!

Exactly!
Just have it printed to the standard CP size (metric that would be 68x34cm) and voila.  :cheers:
DO NOT, i repeat DO NOT add extra size just to make sure its not gonna be too small on any side without adding the same amount in the file !!!!
This will stretch the image and lead to anything but a perfect fit to the holes (that damn rookie mistake cost myself a ton of neurons  :badmood: :banghead: )

If you wanna make sure (some of the "original" MK cabs are told to be bastarded other machines) measure for each hole the ratio border-holecenter/lenght (or width) and compare with the one in file (pixeldistance pointer from upper/left border can be easily read f.i. in MS paint).   
I would highly recomend to do it because its gonna take 10mins and possibly save you from major disapontments...

Regards,

R.


Thanks so much for the response.  I will probably send it over to gameongrafix with the measurements.

Im thinking of getting a MK1 cabinet and I want to add 6-buttons.  Do I make a new control panel by removing the old one and tracing it on wood to cut?  Then print out your overlay to drill in the right spots?

You can do that but you dont have to.
Just remove the buttons - drill the new holes - fix the remaining hole in the middle as prfessionaly as you can  :D

My files are based on an out of the factory midway CPO - they fit the standard MK CP layout.

Thanks. I am debating on whether or not to move some of the assets around so the run buttons don't cover up the MK logo. Its gonna be a ton of work recreating the background halftoning since I am not dealing with a layered file. The other option is to make the MK logo slightly smaller, but then again id have to recreate the background halftoning. I may just tweak the current implementation and call it good.

Tweak it and call it a day, man....

It looks great!

When you resize the MK Logo it moves away from the original look - believe me it woīt get any better, and iīve plenty of foolin around there.

As stated above - i canīt think of a reason for that 7th button for myself (lower block used for running, only 6 buttons needed in SF2  :D) but if i needed one i would use your CPOversion!

R.

I got my new control panel overlay printed locally on adhesive backed vinyl and couldn't be happier.  I have the protective paper on it still because I am getting the plexiglass to protect it tomorrow. 

I moved the rows of buttons in towards the middle and made a new control panel to spare my original.  I moved the buttons because I was afraid the low punch and low kick figures were going to have their heads covered by the buttons.  Here is a pic.  I'll post a better one tomorrow (assuming the plexiglass gods favor me).

Thank you good sir! I've got them downloaded and will add a 7th button to the layout and share it this week if I can get it done.

Thanks for sharing your work. It's greatly appreciated.
