I am building a mame arcade for my kids (and myself!).
The base is a regular jamma cabinet with an original arcade monitor connected with a J-Pac to a computer (and occasionally to my jamma 1942 and 1943 boards).
It is running on ArcedeOS/advanceMame now but I am not able to get the "insert key" and "exit game" functions connected with a button combo.
Now I have to leave the cabinet open because it has an insert coin button inside (and a pc keyboard).

Does anyone have a clue on how to fix this?

Hi, As you are using a j-pac you can re program the keys to match what you need, see the Ultimarc website here

There will be more info on the j-pac FAQ page about using shift keys etc. Also you could just put a small push button switch under the control panel and wire it to the j-pac one for insert coin and one for exit game there should be more info on the ultimarc website on adding extra buttons, hope this helps.
