where I found the Konami, Nintendo, Capcom, Sega, Acclaim,
and Midway logos. Search the site to find them. I created
the Atari and Namco logos using their appropriate fonts
(font link below). You need a program like Photoshop to
generate images from these files. Because they are vector
images, they are scaleable to any resolution.
Note: The Sega logo I found here did
not have the white boarder around it. This must be added in

CHRO-MAME Marquee (1,625kb)
8,438 x 1,875 pixels | 28-1/8 x 6-1/4 inches | 300
dpi | Adobe PDF File
The marquee file contains company logo's
(I am not affiliated with any of them) and fonts which were
derived from other sources listed above in "Fonts & Vector
Graphics." The CHRO-MAME logo was done using the Doom font
set. All layers are intact.
Note: I had my custom sized
marquee printed out by
Emdkay.net for about $25.00 delivered. They did a
fantastic job with the marquee which was printed at 300dpi
(I see no reason why you would need it printed at a higher
resolution since I can't see any pixels on the final
print). It's sandwiched between two pieces of
Plexiglas), and lit from behind with a single 24 inch
Separate Left Side & Right Side Images | Adobe PDF File
This was the template I used to trace the
coin door onto my arcade cabinet. It prints out on two
pieces of paper which you have to cut, align, and then
tape/staple together. A bit of a pain, but it's longer than
a standard sheet of paper.
Drill Template (10kb)
Microsoft Word Document
Unfortunately, I lost the URL for the
source of the original template. Someone else made it and I
simply modified it for my own use. If you don't alter the
size, one template will print perfectly to scale on a single
sheet of paper.
I simply laid these out on my control
panel and struck nails in the center of all the holes to
help guide my drill.

I created this entire image from scratch
with some help from my modified MS Word joystick template
(one of the hidden layers in the image, "template," is
derived from this). You can download the joystick drill
template on this page as well. This images uses the DooM
TrueType font set (see "Fonts & Vector Graphics") for the
"START" text. All layers and selections are intact. You
can create the entire thing again from the saved selections
if you want to.
Note: If you wish to change the
color from red to something else, simply load the
appropriate saved selections (Menu: Select >>> Load
Selection... >>> "Pick a channel") and fill it in with
whatever color you please.

These overlays rest to the left of my
trackballs. The right edge hides underneath part of the
black colored metal trackball assembly plate.
