Do any of you know someone who owns/runs a video game arcade? It is fairly straight forward to hook up amigas to the older style (lo-res) arcade cabinets and it would be interesting to see how a game like battle squadron would do especially if the cost per game was really low (eg: back to 1980's prices). The tricky bit would be getting the game to only allow starting once the coin mechanism had been triggered.

Rainbow Islands (Amiga) only allows play based on credits from pressing the space bar. The older coinslots just flicked a switch which could be connected to the space bar trigger of the Amiga keyboard.

I wonder if todays arcade game-playing public would play an old-style game if the credit price was real low.
