Hello, guys. First of all, I'd like to say, that I admire the effort of home made cabinets. I was thinking about building one myself.
I have done MAME cabinet once with keypad for video poker controlls and MAME fruit machines. Everything was done using led lighted buttons, controlled by Arduino and MAMEhooker. Worked flawlessly, but it wasn't enough for me.
Now I'm wondering of there is possibility to catch the stepper motor signals sent to reels. As I've read previous discussion, I've found info, that coin hoppers can be operated on MFME. So maybe stepper motor either? Can someone say something about it? Is it possible or it is just a dream ?
If this could be coded to the emulator, it would open a new wave of cabinet building. But this is just a guess.... is it possible to implement?
