Nice to see her up and running! James (RGP) has my board at the moment and I've got a switcher in ready.

Let me know if you want a blue button for the P1 & P2 selectors as I have quite a few spare blue ones now!

Hey folks! I am also in the midst of a HeliFire restore although I managed to find an original upright cabinet that someone had converted into a Popeye. The original control panel was modified to fit the Popeye overlay so I bargained down the original $895 control panel that has been on eBay for forever and purchased it for this cabinet. All that's left is finding a PCB, bezel and marquee. Which is what brings me here -- is any of this vectored artwork available for me to cobble together? I believe the long rectangular help sticker (controller instructions) is shared across the cocktail and upright? HEre's a photo of someone else's original Helifire upright for reference:

Hey timerunner88, good to see you from KLOV!

Olly (muddymusic) on here has redone all of the artwork from the cocktail for his own, so it may be best to give him a try

Hey dude, good to see a pic of your instruction decal so I can see the correct colours too, mine has faded badly. I've not finished the vector work just yet but proabably 75% of the way done, so I'll post here when it's finished.

How goes it? I'm sorry about nagging -- I'm just getting very close to needing this and I have a lot of free time so wondering if I should start making my own vector in the meantime? I would love to help you out and share the end product, too. Whatever works!

Taken a while to get around to it, but the first decal is finished. Just need to do some colour matching on the blue and then I'll get it printed.


The other sticker is a little easier so I'll finish that early next week.

Very useful having your picture above - mine has sun faded very badly so I couldn't even tell the copter was meant to be yellow, and the blues are much different too.

Looks incredible. Let me know when you're printing as I am in for two of them (one extra in case something ever happens. Thanks and glad I could be of some assistance.

The joystick and arrows look a lot lighter than in the picture from the cab?

Yeah don't worry about that, I've Pantone matched it in CMYK, the colour on screen is much different in print.

Looks amazing! When can I buy this on your store? Just re-capped my monitor last night and the game is 100% playable and looks amazing. This is just the icing but it's very welcome.

I'll get the other decal done, then I can do both as a single purchase in the store Smile
Won't take too long, now I've got the colours and font sorted on the other one.

Good deal. Will you be making the instruction card available in a size that will fit an upright cabinet? That's what I've got so while the cocktail sized art is nice I can't really use it.
