coin system on pc?
« on: April 10, 2017, 01:30:52 pm »
iam buying a cheap broken arcade cabinet with coin door iam trying to find software that adds time to the pc when a certain keyboard key is presses (simulating a credit) then after the time has exprie the screen would fade with  like  you have x amount of secconds to add credits to contiune and if that is not done the program wil push a certain macro to exit the existing program (maximus arcade)
and with key press i mean breaking apart a keyboard and wireing the coin system to a keyboard key
is there any software that could do this or any idea how to do this?

Why not just use it to add credits to mame games and play them the traditional way?

Because this guy is obviously trying to profit from MAME.  Sorry man, we don't help for that stuff.

I'd hate to take over this topic, but how can I modify my pinball machines to make the flippers not work if time has exceeded more than 30 seconds per ball?

Because i dont profit from cabs, i tried to use a coin soft provided once from someone here, but it really does not work good, i tried autohotkey timers and they work ok. But if you want to profit then you are looking for thins things at ebay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Multi-Coin-Acceptor-USB-timer-control-board-cafe-kiosk-/260843037522?hash=item3cbb74e352:m:msEarttLtUg5YiDxFUJLskA
