Picture Time - Show me your CP's!

Post by tetsujin »

Hi all

I am planning on making a Naomi into a SD New Net City but I am struggling to find images of different styles of CP's and was thinking of making something different with the button colours.

I know its not that important but id love to see std or different layouts on your CP's to get an idea of what looks good and not etc.

So get your Mesh balls, illuminated buttons and different CP's out for show.

Im esp interested in New Astro City, New Net City and Net City layouts.


My only CP pic for my Astro...

Cheers
Adam :)

It is nice, a very 'clean look' :)

I thinking for my NNC, grey buttons/sticks with grey mesh balls and blue 1P/2P buttons.

Or just go std colours but not 100% sure what they are.



Also, is it wrong to want to paint my Naomi from white to gun metal grey, chopped down and with a NNC kit?

Do it. It's not like repainting it white is a massive problem :)

Colours - yellow for 1P+2P start, yellow balls, white buttons.

I don’t know about Yellow balls (sounds good though) but you need Yellow start buttons with the Black/Dark Hai buttons.

I might stick a Yellow Balltop on my VSHG to see what it looks like (when I get a yellow one)

Original colours are Dark Blue & Red. They look very good.

It's not candy, but my only custom job. The OG CP was just plain bad so I had a buddy that cut the aluminum and I put in all Sanwa:

Doh, didn't realise you only wanted a certain type - this did remind me of gundarns 'control panel gallery' thread at killercabs though, which went on for many pages. :)

My Windy II has white balls, yellow start buttons, and b1+b4 are blue, b2+b5 are white, b3+b6 are red for both players.

If I remember I'll get a shot later.

I'm debating putting console style colours in - red/blue/green/yellow/black/white or similar. Might be a bit rainbow like - but it makes it damn easy to explain to noobs which button they need to be pressing :)

Any CP from any cab is cool. Its just to get ideas of what works for each person as spending £70+ on buttons and sticks is an expensive mistake to get wrong if you dont like the look! :D

Im leaning more towards std colours for cabs as it just seem right.

Not feeling the white buttons on the NNC panel, I like them on the NC but the black and white contrast is too strong.

Are the NNC CP like a hologram? as in some pics they look to have a orange tint??

As shown here on thechop's NNC...

Reflective gray/silver if I remember correctly. So you're seeing the room colour :)

I've got two Astro City cabs, and I love the default colors, but the yellow start buttons are gross, so I went with white. The white start button looks great on the 1P panel, but pops a little too much on the 2P panel, but it's still better than yellow.

Image

Now if the Astro's color scheme were blue, I would have simply popped in the parts from my modded HRAP2 because I really like the look of that one:

Image

edit: though I think the best look is the NNC panel with white buttons and clear bubble top. So hot.

When I was ordering sticks/buttons etc. I ordered about 5 balltops, 32 30mm buttons, 8 or so 24mm.. man that was an expensive order. I sold the surplus on though after settling on a scheme.

Can't make the decision between yellow or green on the Windy II 2P one. The green looks kinda dirty against the black.
