Topics to fix/review:

Joystick mounting is covered in 3.1.5 Mounting joysticks and 4.4.2 Mounting controls in the control panel, Joysticks -- Shouldn't we move the current 3.1.5 text to 4.4.2 and put a "see also" pointer in the text of 3.1 Joysticks? PL1 (talk) 12:52, 6 January 2014 (EST)

Images to find/make/fix:

Types of Cabs (standing) -- Banner with Sketchup line drawing of each sub-type with human figure for scale. Ask Gozer for permission to use some of his models?

Excellent idea! Isn't it that since these are on the public section of the Sketchup warehouse, those are deemed public domain? Felsir (talk) 07:38, 3 January 2014 (EST)
Public domain or not, we should still ask permission and give Gozer a link + credit for his work creating the models. Someone else may need to do this since I'm no good at sketchup and still recovering from a HDD crash. PL1 (talk) 12:49, 3 January 2014 (EST)
Agreed, it's a good thing to give the guy credits for his work. I'll see if I can get some decent Sketchup images this weekend. Felsir (talk) 15:00, 3 January 2014 (EST)
Didn't have the time yet :( Felsir (talk) 03:40, 6 January 2014 (EST)

Types of Cabs (seated) -- Banner with Sketchup line drawing of each sub-type with human figure for scale.

Types of Cabs (small) -- Banner with Sketchup line drawing of each sub-type with human figure for scale.

What is JAMMA/JAMMA+? -- Pic of 56-pin JAMMA connector.

Mounting joysticks -- 4-player "straight" vs. "angled" joysticks.

Mounting options -- Diagram showing Top-mount, Under-mount (non-recessed), Under-mount (recessed), Threaded inserts, and Support blocks.

How do I wire microswitches to an encoder? -- Diagram or picture showing three microswitches wired to an encoder and a daisy-chain ground.

Single-Color and RGB LED buttons -- Pic showing the lighting and switch wiring.

Not sure why the alt text isn't showing up under the 18mm Sanwa pushbutton pic in "Mounting controls in the control panel -- Pushbuttons".

The alt text is showing up in my browser? (chrome) Felsir (talk) 15:30, 7 January 2014 (EST)
For whatever reason, it's not showing up in Firefox 26.0. PL1 (talk) 19:08, 7 January 2014 (EST)

Also, is the current size OK or should we revert to the older one that's 2x larger or the original that is 4x larger? Do you have any Sanwa/Seimitsu buttons that would look better in place of this pic? PL1 (talk) 12:52, 6 January 2014 (EST)

I don't have Sanwa/Seimitsu buttons (I do have a stack op HAPP style buttons though) I think the image is a bit small, but better than no image at all Felsir (talk) 15:30, 7 January 2014 (EST)
So, revert to the 2x larger version or is there a specific size that would be better? Current image is 103 x 120px, the image page can revert to a 206 x 239px version, and the original is 412 x 478px. I'm OK with whatever size you think will work best to show the locking tabs. (It's easy to resize.) PL1 (talk) 19:08, 7 January 2014 (EST)
