Hi guys, My name is Csfieldmusic. I have put together a few arcade cabinets including a bigbox powered multicade and a pinball y powered pinball table. I have started working on a shooter multicade and have Arch’s lightgun build for coinops.

I fallowed the limited instructions on Arcade Punks which include unzipping all the files, installing all the programs and codes on the update folder and placing a copy of the  type 3 Temp.dat file on the c drive that is in the place in c drive folder.. Lol… Problem is I can not figure out for the life of me how to launch coinops!

I can launch mame from the mame folder and even launch the mame roms but that is it.


Anyone know what I am doing wrong or have helpful advice? It is my understanding coinops was included in this pack. I can’t seem to find a coinops exe file anywhere! do I need to install coinops and then copy the arches light gun files to coinops?

Hope I posted this in the right forum. 


Thank you.
