I use azkoyen U2 hoppers. They work great especially if you can find a cheap 2nd hand one. Make sure it's the parallel version though not cctalk/serial version

If you really want to save money, I can give you a WhatsApp contact in China. They deal in Hoppers/buttons/Arcade/casino/slot machine parts. They are cheap, but the postage might make things expensive, unless you can import enough items/weight to make it worth it, because they insist on using FedEx.

Any suggestions for what coin mech to use? I'm familiar with Me126, every machine I've had seems to have these in.

Cashflow 9524 / 126 / 129 prallell coin mechs would work just fine and they appear frequently for sale on ebay cheaply and updated to new coinage.

That may be a bit over the top for what you need, and could be a bit complicated to plug in to a cabinet, power up and connect to an Ipac. You might find it easier to get a couple of cheap Chinese mechs for about a fiver each. They do not need programming (You put a coin in the side of them to calibrate) add 12v and hook them up to a relay which then pulses the Ipac.

OK, you got a link to that and hoppers? Speaking to Reg over at DIF he said the 20ps and 20p tokens payout x2 10ps is that right?

People in the UK use ebay to buy the same mechs/hoppers I buy (From China), but sometimes pay more due to the dropshipper affiliates commision. I don't have a UK link (I live in Asia), I bought my hoppers/relays/buttons/ from lazada.co.th, and shopee.co.th. You could try them, or aliexpress.com from the UK as they usually ship worldwide, or I can give you a whatsapp contact in China, who supplies casinos and amusements vendors, and may be able to do you a bespoke order? They are cheap, but you have to make the order worth the postage cost, and make sure that they provide hoppers that are the right coin size if you use them.

Regarding your hopper question...  MFME only allows a max of 2 hoppers, so you have to alter the settings in MFME IPAC config to accomodate the games that pay out more than 2 different coins. IE: pound in one hopper, and 10ps in the other, so you can pay out 2x10p for 20p payouts, or 5x10p for 50s.

Thank you for the reply.

 

I will get around to checking them websites out, I will probably buy all the buttons, coin mech (is it just one coin mech that does all coins like a cashflow?) and hoppers (are all the hoppers the same, i.e. doesn't matter what you get?) at the same time.

 

Sorry for the questions, I just want to make sure I buy the correct things. It took me 6 months to buy the Mrs a car lol.

 

How about token, 20p payout and £1's that's 3! Unless I just use all cash roms? Or are the tokens using the 20p payout (x2 10's).

Just use a 10p hopper and a £1 hopper.

 

MFME can be configured so that it treats token payouts as 2x10p payouts for each token. So set it up something like this:

 

Token = 2x10p

20p = 2x10p

10p = 1x10p

£1 = 1x£1

 

So as you can see you are only using 2 hoppers for 4 different payout types

Got myself one of these, I thought it would be easier with a touch screen (less things to wire up), I only have to do the coin mech and payouts. I like the idea of touch screen too.

 

I'll dump the hard disk off it and upload it (if allowed) looks like its full of quiz games etc.

 

Done a lot of thinking and thought it could be a jukebox as well, i've bombarded my programming mate with ideas lol. 

 

When he has written the software I will make that available for people to use for their own cabinet building.
