    I'm having some challenges getting a WPC pin set for $0.75 per game and $2 for 4 games. No bill acceptor, just coins. Closest I can get is 4 for $2.25.

    Any tricks to doing this?

    I don't think that's possible. You can get 75 cents per play, 3/$2. Custom pricing, 1 click for each quarter, 3 clicks for a credit, bonus at 8 clicks.

    Thanks Phish. Wouldn't that extra 2 clicks after the bonus "roll over" and give 4/$2.25 as well?

    I'm trying to find a setting that is "even" and would produce the same accumulation if repeated, i.e.
    6/$4.

    Q1 = 1 click ($0.25)
    Q2 = 2 click ($0.50)
    Q3 = 3 clicks ($0.75 - 1 cred)
    Q4 = 4 clicks ($1)
    Q5 = 5 clicks ($1.25)
    Q6 = 6 clicks ($1.50 - 2 cred)
    Q7 = 7 clicks ($1.75)
    Q8 = 8 clicks ($2 - BONUS - 3 cred)
    Q9 = 9 clicks ($2.25 - 4 cred)

    Yeah, now that you mention it, I don't think that works on WPC. Sorry about that. If you crack the code, please let us know. It shouldn't be rocket science, but it sure is a pita doping it out.

    Think I figured it out with a coworker.
    1 quarter = 3 clicks
    1 credit = 8 clicks
    This gives 3 credits at $2 evenly, then bonus 1 credit at 8 clicks.
    Should be able to do whatever you want with the right quarter/credit ratio.
    Will try tonight.

    It worked! But I see I mistyped it above:
    1 quarter = 3 clicks/units
    1 credit = 8 clicks/units
    1 bonus credit @ 24 clicks/units

    Great solution! I was looking for the exact same thing. Surprised you didn't get more (any) love...

    Hi, I'm completely lost trying to get the WPC Pricing Adjustments to bend to my will. I took plenty of math in school, just not "arcade math", apparently.

    I have a Canadian $1 coin receptor in the left slot, and Cdn $2 coin receptor in the right slot. I'd like to price it so $1 = 1 credit, $2 = 3 credits.

    Any advice on where to start?

    [EDIT] Would I use .25 as the base coin size (default), and set it for 4 clicks for 1 play, 8 clicks for 3 plays? That won't work because each click is = $1 (or $2 if the right slot).

    So changing the base coin size to $1.00 (instead of .25), then 1 click = 1 credit, 2 clicks = 3 credits? That doesn't seem to work, it always seems to register 1/4 credit for each coin dropped.

    Hi everyone,
    I have a coin door question (I know, exciting). I have a two-slot coin door on my Judge Dredd (WPC DCS). Ive put in an Australian $1 coin mech on the left slot and an Australian 0.20c coin mech on the right slot. I'm trying to set the game for $1 per play, $2 for Supergame.
    Ive tried messing around with Custom pricing and coin door options but I am stumped.
    Any recommendations on how I can do this?
    Everything in pinball is difficult I've gathered, but always satisfying when its solved.
    ps I am using L7 ROM at this time.

    My issue in the previous post was caused by using L7 roms when what I needed was LX7 which support custom pricing.

    Might be the same for you.
