Arcade coin mechinism workings?

Hello there,

I am designing an arcade, and am
curious as to how the official arcade
coin mechanisms work. If you could
tell me the sensors I need (e.g. weight
sensor, distance sensor, color sensor,
etc.) that would be great! :D

Thanks,

Re: 3d graphics libraries that run on the Pi 2 that aren't slow?

Hmm... :? Is there Open GL for Python?
That's where I can actually manage
programming. :( I thought there was some
sort of library, but I'm not sure. If I have to
do 3d game programming in C/C++, I probably
just won't try it.

3d graphics libraries that run on the Pi 2 that aren't slow?

Hello everyone,

Just wondering if there is a such thing
as a 3d graphics library/3d game engine
that isn't slow and laggy and doesn't push a
Pi 2 up to 100% CPU constantly... :lol:

Please help!

Re: Is there a way to link 2 RPis together to make a faster computer?

I have found out how to use more than 1 core on QEMU. I wasn't using the ARM QEMU VM, I was using the x86 VM to run Windows 98. I have had some success, though I have only been using one core. I am going to try using 2 or 3 this weekend. QEMU can emulate about what I would guess a 40 MHz x86 process...

Re: Is there a way to link 2 RPis together to make a faster computer?

OK. I might just go for the Pi 3 - But I sometimes use the Pi for some VMs I play around with. Those VMs only will use 1 core on my computer, so getting a Pi 3 woulden't help too much. I was hoping to link two Pis together to make an Octa-core computer, and hack the VMs to use 2 or more cores of my ...

Hi, Just wondering if it is possible to link or daisychain two RPis together - to make a faster computer. Also, would I need two SD cards? :?
