Quoted from Whysnow:
I do believe the change is coming for heighway to a 2 coin door WITH a DBV. We are game #41 so I am still OK with cutting them a little slack. They did reengineer the trough to be positioned differently so a DBV will fit (at least that is how I understand it). Lats I was told, Alien will come with a door that accepts a DBV.
I think coins are the more common thing in UK so I can understand them not having them at the start. Heighway has been AMAZING about making adjustments so I am sure this is something that will happen also.
Whysnow, this is a problem for me as well, especially since I have the game set on $1 a game, takes forever to dump all those quarters in.
When I spoke with Heighway about some of my issues, I mentioned this. They told me that they are aware of the issue and are currently working on getting new doors for us US folks that has a dollar bill acceptor. They said this was probably still 3-4 weeks out though.
I was originally going to use a dremel and cut a hole out, but there isn't a way to even wire up the bill acceptor currently, which is why they are working on a new door. I would just hold out for a few more weeks instead of trying to order a new door, I fear you will still have the problem of having no way to hook it up. Just my .02
