turn a playstation into a arcade

Hi All,

I am new here and basically new to being an electronics hobbyist.
I would like to convert my psone into an arcade gaming machine with coin acceptor. I don't specifically know what to ask but basically I know there must be a board or a circuit that communicates between the ps unit, joystick and the coin acceptor.

If possible, I would like it in DIY type so I would learn and appreciate electronics in the process.

Thanks in advance.

Zenouir

playstation on coins machine

dudes! do you know any basis on Electronics? (or just electrics) all that stuff is very easy! the most difficult part I´ve seen is setting the coin detector to set the Start button a couple of times needed according some games...

Also I have seen, a new playstation controlled striped and soldered some buttons to conform am arcade controller... maybe the most difficult part should be making an PS-compatilble Arcade controller without stripping an orginal one... but also, I think its cheaper to strip an used controller or something very easy...


Thinking better. i´m sure there are many pages explaining how to do this kind of stuff...
