advice needed

Archived from groups: rec.games.video.arcade.collecting (More info?)

hello. i posted this in rec.games.video.arcade as well but thought i would
try here as well.

i have a 4-player atari gauntlet 2 arcade machine. when i place a coin in
either slot 1 or 3, a credit goes to both player 1 and 3. this happens with
slot 2 and 4. is there a way to stop this from happening so that each coin
slot only credits the relevant player? is there a switch that does this?

any help or advice gratefully received. thanxs.

    should be a dip switch setting on the logic board. try obtaining a
    manual online..it should show how to set up the mechs

    hello there.

    i managed to find a manual for a gauntlet 1 machine but not gauntlet 2. i
    guess they are quite similar. it makes no mention of switching the
    coin/credit settings for player 1-4, there is lots of schematics but i dont
    know much about how to read them unfortunately. anyone know what i should be
    looking for? cheers

    managed to sort it out.

    a friend who has a bit more know-how than me when it comes to wiring noticed
    that coin slot 1 + 3, 2+4 had a wire between them that didnt seem to be
    doing anything but tie them together, so we snipped them and that broke the
    connection between the coin slots. now they all work independently of each
    other. thanxs for the help though. cheers.
