Do people manufacture arcade tokens that will work in a quarter-based coin acceptor?
If I can get this question answered, I'll have a whole new thread I'd like opinions on.
"Any quarter based coin acceptor can be adjusted to take tokens, if I am not mistaken."
I think this is correct, but it may be tricky. The biggest two biggest issues to adjust will be the weight balancer (checks for valid mass) and metal detection (checks for improper metal alloys in slugs). They do make token acceptors also. I don't know how expensive they are.
I'm more interested in keeping the quarter acceptors, and want to know if they'll take both quarters and tokens.
So if I had one quarter and one token, I could play a 50 cent game. Is that possible?
