have an undetected epileptic condition.
If you or anyone in your family has experienced sympfoms linked to an epileptic condition
(e.g., seizures or loss of awareness), immediately consult your physician before using
any video games.
We recommend that parents observe their children while they play video games. If you
or your child experience the following symptoms: dizziness, altered vision, eye or muscle
twitching, involuntary movements, loss of awareness, disorientation, or convulsions,
DISCONTINUE USE IMMEDIATELY and consult your physician.

Before servicing electronics, turn off AC power to the VGM. Wait for capacitors to discharge.
Before touching or handling electronic assemblies, discharge static electricity on your body. To discharge static, begin by connecting the line cord to a properly grounded outlet, but do not turn on the
power! Next, touch the safety ground stud of the power supply chassis.
Store electronic assemblies in an anti-static area. Use anti-static bags to store or transport circuit
boards, Transport the hard drive in original shipping container.
Do not remove or connect electronic assemblies when the power to the cabinet is switched on. Otherwise you’ll damage electronic assemblies and void the warranty.
Replace ground wires, shields, safety covers, etc., upon completion of maintenance or service. install
and firmly tighten all ground and mounting screws.

appear identical to devices supplied with games,
but do not include an internal crossover.
Verify each linking crossover coupler operates
properly by placing it in a working link between two

Use an additional crossover connector and cable
to extend game or hub link connection. Two crossovers cancel each other out and results in same

Connect cables directly to hub. Do not use a
crossover coupler and hub together in single network.
Separate communications wiring from other wiring. Wires that must cross can only cross at right
angles to limit noise pickup.
