I've relented and added features for hopper payouts, both machines with tradional triac operated slides and actual hoppers. So it can now payout in real time. Can also drive traditional electromechanical meters.

Another feature is driving multiple outputs from one lamp so you can use RGB leds.

Yes it may be an issue for you as the output will be on before MFME starts and clears it.


That is great news Wizard, as Uptown has already stated, it will help those of us who want the "Home Cab" experience.


And Kudos to Pinallthetime for that great looking cab.

As ever Pook,  a lovely looking DX, thanks to all involved and I am sure I can remember playing something like this in the wild many moons ago!

Have a great one, Vegas is great fun, so much to do and see and some amazing food!!   Looking forward to hearing how you go!

#307207 I wondered if it would be worth having a Cabinet Build section on the site?

Posted by thecodfather on 07 August 2017 - 05:36 PM

I think it is a good idea mate, would make sense to keep all the resources and topics together.  Certainly gets my vote.

Posted by thecodfather on 02 August 2017 - 06:48 AM

Never going to happen, as others have said, way too much money to be had from governments and manufacturers. All of these people only seem to care about is profit and margins etc..

I rarely play modern games at all now because the are so mind numbingly boring. I have a £70 jackpot machine which I don't play because there is no fun to be had at all!!

Vectra has a great point, value is key. I remember back in the day having £50 on my hip and that could last all day, that would go down the pan in a few minutes now! Agreed that it is all relative and £50 was loads back then but at least I got a days entertainment out of it if I lost the lot, which was very rare to be honest!

That is why I am hoping to get these MFME builds finished so I can have the good old days back. Thanks to the scene for making it possible!!

#306095 MFME Red Hot Poker Cabinet Build

Posted by thecodfather on 08 July 2017 - 08:34 PM

Evening All, 


Following on from No1Stoney's, Uptown's, Andy2003's and others who have built their own fruity I have had a pop too.  Here is what I have done so far: -




This is based on a  Barcrest Elvis Sitdown cabinet which I picked up for £19 (well it was £20 but I found a pound coin inside it when I was taking it apart!).


I am going to leave this as simply a single poker machine, BWB Red Hot Poker is one of my all times favourite games.  It will take coins and pay out coins but so far, all I have done is what you see, made Big Red Poker full screen, it has a touch screen so that I can select the holds without having to use the buttons and it takes new and old £1 coins!  


There is still loads to do but not too shabby!


A massive thanks to No1Stoney and Uptown for their help and patience in getting this far.  Appreciate it guys!


Any input or comments are welcome.

Hi there Rob,

Welcome to the forums.

Here are some links that will help

No1Stoney has worked out how to get coin mecks and hoppers working in a cabinet, indeed he has inspired some of us to do the same.
