Anyone here ever build a simple DIY coin slot into a stick or mame cab?
I’ve had this perverse idea to put a slot into my next homebuilt stick.
Essentially my idea is not for accuracy but for the formality of inserting a quarter.
I can just mount a normal HAPP style switch so that the trigger nub blocks the bottom half of a coin slot right?
Granted it won’t be a natural coin “drop” I’d have to push it in quickly so the finger doesn’t grip and stick the coin in the slot.
Just a thought.
I might even be able to make a separate little box for coin insertion and use an Arduino to emulate a keyboard key press.
