[To begin, I apologize in advance for the following English, I am French and I don't speak Shakespeare's language, so I use an online translator... hoping it won't hurt the meaning of my request]
I would like to know if it is possible to add a credit system to the emulator, like an arcade game -> insert a coin to play on the emulator, such as a "PlayChoice-10" type born arcad
I didn't find any discussion about it. Anyone ever thought about it? Is there this type of functionality on other Snes emulators?"PlayChoice-10" payment system: We didn't pay for a number of credits but for time. Each coin inserted gave the right to a play time. A countdown was carried out.
Reason for my request:
I built a Mame cabinet on Hyperspin frontend to enjoy the old arcade games and I added a real coin mechanism for the pleasure of realism. And frankly just the sound of the coin passing through the coin acceptor is too good!!!!!
I added a Snes game category in the mamecab with the Zsnes emulator of course. But in this case it is impossible to use the coin acceptor . What a pity!!!!!
I'm aware of the singular nature of my request and perhaps I'll be the only one to ask for this kind of thing.
I'm not a professional developer, I manage a little bit in c++, I think I can develop a small program that would run in the background, with a timer for credits for each coin insert, nothing very complicated, I see it very simply.
But would it be possible to control the Zsnes emulator from this program?
The command to pause/play the emulation should be more than enough.
Does my project seem achievable to you?
or is it more complicated than I imagine...
if you think that's impossible, let me know.
I would like to thank in advance those who will take the time to respond to my request.
