This was my first arcade
with my ColecoVision.
The ColecoVision was mounted inside this wood cabinet
made of chipboard.
This guy had helped me before with a used loose arcade joystick and 2 new fire buttons.
That was for an earlier Joystick project.
After the joystick project around 1985/86, I ordered 2 more buttons and a coin slot from the guy.
At the former electronics store RCE electronics on Boulevarden in Aalborg, Denmark (Now closed) do I find the db 9 connectors.
I had an extra small power supply to the light inside for player 1 and 2.
A little metal plate was made for the joysticks, and the coin slot was mounted.
A ColecoVision Controller was disassembled and the wires were mounted so that player 1 was set to number 1 and player 2 was set at number 5 on the keypad.
The coin slot was set to thesymbol, key 1 or reset, I don't remember.
Me, my cousins and friends played almost everyday and we fought against each other to reach the highest score.
-We were quite wild sometimes.
This is what is left from the project in the 80's.
The box with the coin slot was thrown away sometime around 1999, I think.
