You're welcome. Thank you for the warning on the joystick part of the control panel. I'll continue to take some research and look around for the right joystick for my control panel. I do agree with you that there are a lot of arcade-cabinet building experts on this site. I already did my fair share of question-asking, so taking research is the route I'm taking for now on.  :lol

I don't have any graphic design skills, but I have to say that I really like the artwork you put into it. I also like the last one based off of the Atari 2600. I also like how in the artwork of video game characters/consoles that you make, that you really show the history of gaming, and respect gaming history at the same time. So, I would have to say that you've done a good job of putting that all together.

Ok, here are some of the menu graphics I made for my front end. In the interest of everything matching, but also not being exactly the same, I utilized pictures of the physical consoles, official logos (when available) and tried to also capture the essence of the system and the era it came from. To see all of them (so far) in their full-size glory, head over to my Flickr page

Hopefully, these tie in well with the front-end design and mascots. I will make and post a video using these new graphics this weekend.....
