So I picked up a Megatouch Aurora over the weekend at Pinfest and have a few questions. It has the 2013 software, but wondering about the security key. I've been reading that some machines have a battery in the security key that is only designed to last for ~10 years. Apparently it isn't replaceable and since the company doesn't support Megatouch anymore, you're screwed when it dies.
I see someone found a way to "hack" the key based on the abandon-ware laws, but it doesn't appear to be available / applicable to my Aurora. Unless the Aurora doesn't rely on a battery powered key?
The article I found lists the "Force" as applicable to the hack.
Anyone know what this thing is on the side? The lock to open up the back is on the other side, so I'm not sure what this is for. Sorry about the picture quality, but I had to crop it out of another picture I have of the game.
