If it's a dual cab it should let you play together by default. One player starts the game, then it should show a timer and wait for the other player to join in.

Could be a connection error between the two cabs. Can you get into the BIOS menu?

Admittedly it has been quite a while since I've seen a BG3 in the wild. That said, on more recent cabinets, the game will display a sort of boot screen similar to a computer. Usually if something is wrong, there will be an error message or some sort of notification during the boot, so that's what I'd check first.

After that, I'd make sure there's a physical connection between the two cabinets - an Ethernet cable or otherwise. The obvious place to look would be on the back, though failing that it could be on the inside in the service bay.

You mentioned the game "didn't come with a key," so not sure if that means you can't get inside it? If that's the case it might be difficult, since arcade games usually have controls to access the service menu on the inside.

I can get to the back of it to see all inside of it. They key i guess has to do with racing other players online. Im not sure thou. Ill look behind it today to see if there is something that looks connected. Hopefully i dont need this special key to play 2 player vs the same module

Ohhh, the NESYS key. Yeah, that's basically just a memory card. You can save custom car setups/upgrades etc. to it, but the game is 100% playable without it.

I fixed the problem. It was the adapter to the hub. Thanks for your help

Glad you got it fixed. Can you take some pictures of the setup? I'd love to see what it looks like.

And come join us in the BG3 time attack threads ;)

If you need more info on the cab just ask.

Also you could check the manual, it's easy to find.

We had trouble with our BG3 tunes when we bought it. We had to resolver on of the usb connection on the 246.

This made them connect but still dropped off now and then.

We then changed batteries which worked but lost us some tracks.

On our BG3 tunes there is a usb to RJ45 adaptor that goes into a network switch, it would be worth checking them.

I have Nessy key but obsolete since they shut down the online garage as far as I can tell.

Hope it help,

Thanks,

Glenn

Hi Glenn,

Welcome. I think we chatted through Ebay.
I was the one who was asking about the extra tracks.
