Just wanted to share.

Was able to make my own personal-use, coin-operated arcade machine in under 50 USD using two zero-delay PCBs I had lying around. Tested from Tekken 1, all up to Tag 2, and was able to simulate the "arcade feel" of dropping coins/tokens also, as long as arcade mode is selected, as pressing the START button will make the NEW CHALLENGER function activate.
(I'm now in the process of buying a Chinese Vewlix control panel from Alibaba, to really make it feel like the arcade (though I am aware official Tekken machines these days use the Namco Noir control panels, but mind you, it's pretty abundant in my country to see clones of Tekken Tag 2 sporting Chulix arcade machines as their platform.)
I'm now here, asking for assistance, since it seems that Tekken 7's console port has removed the NEW CHALLENGER feature in arcade mode, thus limiting my options to replicate the token function commonly seen in arcades. Has anyone figured out how to bring back that feature in T7's PC port? Or is it actually still in the game, and I'm just missing something?
Any input would be appreciated!
