I just Googled "Donkey Kong", and 95% of the images had him with a tie on. Damn DK Country!

You should go with this version, Chancie...

Heh,  :laugh: everybody's a critic.

When I get a second tonight I'll post a dropbox link to the vector assets, so anyone who wants to take a crack at removing his tie is welcomed to give it their best shot. For now I'm at least removing the "DK" off of it.  I rather like the fire, it's a solid throwback to the old original art.

I can't decide to do a rehash of the classic DK bezel like the D2K art did, or go a new direction like the DK jr and DK3 cabs.  Thoughts?

Here is my quick draft to show what I was thinking. I took out the help and added the hammer instead to fill in that space.

Don't be afraid of negative space.  It helps the eye know what's important and adds visual flow.  Filling it with clipart won't help anything.

I prefer Jumpman over modern Mario. And DK doesn't look scary enough to be the antagonist.

Hammer looks odd and out of place.

Yeah, but it is mimicking how it sort of just hangs there in the game.  I just thought that it was a good idea to throw something in there as he wanted something in that blank space, and the hammer seemed to be the most logical choice.

While I agree it's a logical choice, I don't think it works here, even if the art style matched or the proportions were correct. Good try, tho.

Can we talk about the floor?  Howzabout making it look like the last platform, instead of grape?  Maybe some decking?

The final platform of that level is actually Violet Beauregarde.

Too bad you got the rep button killed, ---maternal-smurf---. I would have given you rep thrice over, and threw flowers at your feet.

That's awesome! Now we just need to take care of the other ones I'm going to use. I'll shoot you an email. Thanks!

I like the idea of changing the floor he's on, I'll toy with that a bit. Not really a big fan of the hammer, even if it was done in the same style. It looks strange without the tie, but I like it. Seriously awesome. Well done.

...The rest of you guys remind me of the monkeys from Jumanji.  ::)

Small controls conundrum. Do I go Dominux8 with an octogon Restrictors or hack up a Servostik to the ArcadeSD for switching? Thoughs?

I keep going back and forth on the decision. Does anyone have a nice clean install example of an ServoStik and an arcadeSD setup?

Yeah, I've seen that. But I want pictures. Wiring diagrams and text instructions are one thing, but if I can get a look at how someone did their setup and layout, I can improve on it.

I'm putting Mario Bros and Super Mario bros in it as well. Besides, there's an Arcade SD going in it, I can't not have options. Maybe the day comes that I feel the itch for one of the games needing an 8-way? I'd want to activate it for a bit.

I don't know, just spitballing.

Mario and super Mario play vert on the ArcadeSD. 

Besides guys, the ArcadeSD is only a temporary solution until my other master plan comes to fruition.  >:D

Neph, you don't have a picture of the relay setup for this do you?
