You need a commercial license to be able to do this.

You can set it up without the commercial licence file to test everything works. You need a coin mech and a keyboard encoder like an iPAC to send a different keypress for each coin type inserted into the jukebox. I used a C220 back when i did it but what is available to you depends on your region. I wired each coin output from the C220 to a different key on the iPAC then set up E-touch to accept those keys to give the credits.

He will still need a commercial licence to use it correctly but to test the set up the licence isn't required. I always recommend that people get it working first before buying the licence. Without the licence the jukebox will start up with 30 credits and will still let people play songs and run into negative credits.

hello, home use here but want to at least make credits increase with coin mech.  I am using a usb arcade controller.  Computer sees USB joystick fine and the only button i have wired is button 1 - which i plan to connect to the coin mech.  tested it under devices and test mode shows button 1 working (turn red) when i close the circuit/connection.  set options in etouch  ver 10 to use credits and saved.  Went to creditmodule, admin mode, set value, X and gives all to 1.  "Coin 1" is a mystery to me however: i tried using the drop down or just pressing keyboard keys 1 and 5 nothing seems to work.  Do not seem to do anything the option to close out of the creditmodule window is greyed out i have to kill the window.  I did have to change the path to etouch10 the default was Etouch9 for some reason, but still no dice.  it will at least show 1 or 5 in the coin 1 dropdown when i press the keyboard but 1 or 5 wont add credit in the etouch program.  and closing the circuit on my USB controller for button 1 does not even show up under the dropdown in creditmodule.

You need the commercial version and not the home version for credits to work.

The screen that you see is because it would be too much hassle to remove it.

got keyboard 1 to add credits now, still working through how I map this to button 1 on my USB joystick controller


dwade12345

will etouch10 recognize the USB joystick controller or will i have to install a program like "joytokey" to make the joystick seem to be a standard keyboard?

dwade12345

joytokey has it working now, no doubt my coin mech will add credit but would be nicer if the etouch software can recognize the USB joystick directly, any suggestions?
