    I have a Monaco from Spain before I plug it in what type of converter might it need on the plug it has a adapter that changes the round European pins to American flat pins but not sure if that is all a person would need since Spain is 230 V

    While modern power supplies (e.g. laptop bricks) can tolerate inputs from 100VAC to 240VAC I doubt that this game can. It may have a transformer that can be configured for either 120V or 230V but without documentation it would be hard to know. If you're lucky the transformer is labeled with its input and output voltages.

    If the game is still wired for 230V you would either need to find an external step up transformer (120V -> 230V) or reconfigure or replace the internal transformer.

    Most of the Sonic games in the US are 120V, unless you've got a weird one that was actually imported later on... Is there a part number or anything on your transformer?

    Get from eBay a step down transformer for 240v to 110V 750W. About $24.

    I used on on my Sega gunfight and it worked perfect.

    For the Monaco, we need a picture of the transformer in the cabinet. There is a lug to swap it from 230v to 120v. Then you can either chop off the European plug and put an American one on it or just get a cheapy little adapter as I did. Makes it look more foreign!
    If you bought this pin in America, then there is a strong chance it has already been swapped, as every Spanish game I've ever gotten has been.
