Letís add recoil to House of the Dead!
« on: May 04, 2022, 08:33:41 am »
Good day team,

I just picked up one of my grail arcade cabinetsÖ the House of the Dead. I always loved this game but always felt a little kick in the guns would make it play so much better. Both guns already have a cracked opening on the bottom so fitting the wiring should be easy. Hereís my goal:

-add a solenoid to the guns
-use a smart plug to power it so I could turn it off and on as I please
-I understand the recoil will still go off when reloading but thatís perfectly fine for me

What I need your advice on:

-which solenoid should I use? (Could someone point me in the right direction. Please)
-how do I power it?
-how do I wire this together?

Thank you so much all for your advice, Iím super happy to finally own this game.
