Re: Bally one armed bandit help

Show pics with the door open please. What coin is it on? I'm assuming the microswitch works and credits when activated by hand? You could just bypass the S10 or adapt it so it takes any coin, the problem with that being any coin other than the correct ones may jam the hopper because everything would...

Re: Game ideas
