Minimum buttons required

Recommended Posts

Hi, starting my cabinet project and building the cab at the moment. Want to have as few buttons as possible.

What's the minimum amount of buttons needed? Guess you can use the flipper buttons to browse in menu system, different programs, different functionality. Then there's  a start button, coin, escape...

You will need at least minimum:
1 Launch Ball Button
1 Coin in Button
1 Start Button
1 Exit Button
2 Flipper Buttons
Other buttons to consider:
2 MagnaSave Buttons for games with MagnaSave or other game options
1 Extra Ball Button
But you can add more. It ́s a personal preference if you want to install more

Was hoping for less than 3 on the front :) Not possible to use magna save buttons for coin in and start? Haven't really seen and tried all programs needed, menu system and all... Still in the building cabinet phase.

Depending on used controller you could use a “shift button” to assign a secondary action to a certain button.
Pinscape is capable of doing so.
You could use a small black button together with start to define the exit function.

Maybe can combine coin and start to one button.  Or set all games to free play

I used a real coin door and made the coin returns into buttons. I also used a real plunger with a pinscape, so I can use the plunger as a launch button when needed. Then it’s just start and exit actual looking buttons (I also have a buy in button, but wouldn’t put one in if I did it again)

So that’s possible? Don’t see any point in not doing so then.

Sounds good. I was a bit cheap and bought a no coin door...
