i was wondering which method you guys prefer to start your game / add credits:

(1) insert coins (if so, are you using different currencies?)

(2) set game on freeplay (if possible)

(3) leave the coin door open and push the coin switch manually

in my opinion you get the real arcade feeling when you're throwing in coins, however there is the problem with the coin door acceptance. some of my cabs are from france, others from italy, others from germany and so on. i don't have all those different coins lying around, therefore my idea is to change all the coin doors to accept tokens. you still have the arcade feeling then but don't have to collect hundreds of different coins.

problem is: how do it "convert" the coin door to accept tokens? have you ever done this before?

what's your take on the whole thing? it would be interesting to know ...

Once I have all my games up and running, I am going to get some tokens made and use them :-)

you are going to get some tokens MADEshock with your face on them?  Wink

can you "convert" the coin door yourself to accept the tokens or do you buy and install them token-ready?

Yeah there is a place in the US that make tokens and the price is not to bad (I'll find the link and post it up)

Unsure on the coin mechs but I'd be happy to change them over.

Oh, and no face on the tokens, but the name of the room yes (to be funny, one side will say Steve's Game Room (or Dexter's) and the other with say Janine's (my mrs) then it's like heads and tails lol
