I have just bought a Flash Gordon and everything seems to be running fine except I cannot add credits. I noticed that:
1) There are no coin mechs or switch actuators
2) All wires going to all switches (in each coin mech section) are cut
3) The start button is wired directly to the coin door coil

Is this a method to bypass the coin mechs and add credits and start the game from the start button?

Thanks,
Dave

My guess is that the machine was hacked for free play. The older machines did not have a free play setting and these types of things were done when they were converted for home use.
