Site Preparation
Game Description
In determining the location for your
Megatouch FORCE™ video game, consideration must be given to a suitable, grounded
electrical outlet. Since the game is a computerized device, it should have a separate
circuit, if at all possible. If a separate circuit
is not available, care should be taken to provide a clean and constant voltage. As a
basic guideline, never connect the unit to a
circuit that also supplies power to freezers,
coolers or other high power consuming and
electrical noise generating equipment. Place
the game in a location where nothing will
interfere with proper ventilation. The game
should not be exposed to any dripping or
splashing liquids. Objects filled with liquid
should not be placed on the unit.
The Megatouch Elite Edge model has 2 keylocked compartments: the CPU section door
and the rear door. It comes equipped with a
coin mech and/or bill acceptor. There are
also couplers installed in the rear of the game
for future hardware upgrades including linking and modem capabilities. Some games
come with an Ethernet cable and a crossover connector which can be used to link
games. For linking information see Linking
Games in the next section.
NOTE: The Elite Edge is not designed
to function in an ambient temperature
in excess of 95ºF or 35ºC.
Setting up your Megatouch Game
1.
After removing the game from the carton, plug the game into a standard AC
outlet.
2.
Turn the power switch at the back of
the game to ON and wait for it to go
through its boot-up sequence. The
game will display the Player Menu
Screen.
3.
4.
1
The machine has been preset at the
factory and therefore should not need
to be adjusted, however it is recommended that the screen be calibrated
(see Screen Calibration) and the coin
and/or bill acceptor(s) be tested.
There are many custom settings available for the game. To customize the
settings, follow the software instructions in this manual.
CPU Section
The CPU section is accessible from the front
of the game. The CPU section houses the
LCD monitor, motherboard, I/O board, power
supply, hard drive, and the main harness.
For bill-only games the centronics connector is also located inside the CPU section
(see Figure 24). Also located in the CPU
section, near the hinge of the CPU section
door, is the control board. Two internal
switches (SETUP and CALIBRATE) are located on the board (see Figure 24). Pressing the SETUP button will bring you to the
Main Menu Screen (see Figure 1). See the
next section for calibration instructions.
Games with Coin Mechs
To gain access to the centronics upgrade
connector (to install a software upgrade)
and the coin mech, you must open the hinge
between the CPU section and rear housing.
To do this, unlock and open the CPU section
and remove the cotter pin (see Figure 24).
Rear Housing
The rear housing contains the coin box/bill
acceptor, the meter and the USB port. The
rear door is key-locked for security purposes.

General Circuit
Information
Board
Prevent Electro-Static Discharge by:
1. Storing the boards in the antistatic bags in which they are
shipped.
2. Removing any static charge
from your body before handling
the boards.
3. Using a ground strap when
handling the boards.
•
•
When plugging in connectors to the
board, make sure the connector is
inserted straight onto the header and
covers all header pins.
Do not connect any peripheral device
to the board, if the power is still
connected to the peripheral or if power
is already applied to the board.
CAUTION: Be extremely careful when replacing the lithium battery on the motherboard. There is a danger of explosion if the
battery on the motherboard is incorrectly
replaced. Only replace the battery with the
same type recommended by the manufacturer. Dispose of used batteries according
to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Cleaning the Cabinet
•
3
•
Handling
Before handling any boards, observe the
following procedures:
•
Cleaning the Touchscreen Monitor
The cabinet should be cleaned with a
damp cloth and mild detergent. Always
apply the cleaner to the cloth and not
directly on the game. Liquids could
enter the cabinet and damage electronics inside.
The touchscreen glass should be
cleaned with a damp cloth and isopropyl alcohol or a non-ammonia cleanser.
Do not use any abrasive or vinegarbased cleansers, as they will damage
the touchscreen glass.
NOTE: DO NOT USE ANY ABRASIVE
SOLVENTS, ACID OR VINEGAR-BASED
CLEANSERS ON THE MONITOR OR
SIDE DECALS. OVER TIME, SUCH
CLEANSERS COULD HARM THE
TOUCHSCREEN AND ERASE THE DECALS. BE CAREFUL NOT TO USE COMMERCIAL CLEANERS CONTAINING
ANY OF THESE SUBSTANCES.
Cleaning the Fans and Vents
•
The fans and vents should be cleaned
of any dust and grime on a regular
basis to ensure proper ventilation of
the game.
•
To ensure proper operation of the
game, it is important that all fans are
operating correctly and that the airflow
is unobstructed. Make sure nothing is
placed inside the cabinet or next to the
fan vents that would inhibit the flow of
air. Also, if any fans are not operating,
it is important that they be replaced.
Watchdog Timer
This game has been equipped with a feature that allows it to automatically reboot if it
encounters a problem. When the watchdog
timer is enabled, it will reboot the machine
within 2 minutes after a failure, allowing the
game to automatically reset itself if a problem arises without needing a technician
present. If you want to disable the watchdog timer, set DIP switch 3 on the I/O board
to the open position and reboot the game.

Linking Games
Some games include an Ethernet cable and a crossover connector used to link games
together. By linking your games, players can play compete against one another in real-time
interactive play. Follow the instructions below to link your games. The software will allow
up to 8 games to be linked.
NOTE: One Ethernet cable is required for each game you are linking. Additional Cat-5
UTP RJ45 Ethernet cables can be purchased at your local computer store.
1.
Turn off and unplug the games.
2.
Connect one end of the supplied
Ethernet cable to the Ethernet connector on the outside of the game. The
Ethernet connector is the one on the
top if you are facing the back of the
Elite Edge game (see Figure 25). If the
Ethernet cable has a ferrite attached to
the end of it, make sure this end is closest to the game.
3.
Connect the second Ethernet cable to
the Ethernet connector on the outside
of the second game.
NOTE: If you are linking games to a Combo
Jukebox or a MegaTunes unit, the free ends
of the Ethernet cables from the games will
connect directly to the Ethernet ports on the
jukebox or MegaTunes unit. If you are linking more than 2 games and a jukebox, or
more than 3 games and a MegaTunes, you
will need to connect an Ethernet cable to the
hub connector on the jukebox or MegaTunes
unit and plug the free ends of all of the cables
into a hub.
MegaTunes: The Ethernet ports are located
on the Ethernet hub mounted to the single
board computer (SBC). The 4 ports on the
right for Ethernet, the port on the left is for
connecting a hub only. Loosen the 2
thumbnuts securing the front access panel.
Connect the Ethernet cable to one of the
Ethernet ports and replace the front access
panel routing the cable through the slots at
the bottom of the access panel.
Combo Jukebox: There are two available
Ethernet couplers, labeled Mega-Link, on
the upper left if you are facing the back of
the jukebox.
PM0484-08
4.
Linking two games: Connect the free
ends of both the Ethernet cables into
the crossover coupler.
Linking more than two games: Connect the free ends of the Ethernet
cables into a 10 BASE-T Ethernet hub
(available from your distributor as a
separate part number (EC0030-01), or
at your local computer store).
5.
Plug in the games and turn on the power.
If installation was successful, you will
see a Mega-Link® button displayed on
the screen after the menu appears.
NOTE: The Mega-Link® button will appear
on the game only when 2 or more games
are linked.
NOTE: If a MegaTunes unit has been linked
to a game, the music will be downloaded to
the game. This download time will vary depending on the amount of music being downloaded.
NOTE: Megatouch games that are connected using the Mega-Link™ system must
have the same level of software for proper
operation. The software is designed to detect other levels of software in linked games.
If a different level is detected, you will receive a screen that says, “MEGALINK MISMATCH CALL ATTENDANT.” This screen
will be displayed approximately 5 minutes
after you turn the games on. To clear the
screen and continue playing the games, you
must turn the power off, unlink the games,
and turn the power back on again. If you
want to link these games you must upgrade
all games to the same software level.

Coin-In Menu
Touch the currency default display to hide/
show the display.
FIGURE 3 - COIN-IN MENU
Game cost can be controlled two ways: by
changing the number of credits required to
play a game or by changing the cost of a
credit. The Coin-In Menu allows you to adjust the cost of a credit, as well as provide a
way to give players “bonus” credits for depositing a higher amount of money. Use the
left and right arrows to change the number
of credits.
When programming the Coin-In Menu, Channel 1 is set for the lowest value coin, Channel 2 for the next highest value, etc. Meter
pulses are independent of credits and only
track the unit of currency. Players are given
an incentive to deposit more money by giving them “bonus” credits for depositing larger
denominations. Coins may be deposited in
any combination of values and the game will
automatically register the highest number of
credits for the total amount of coins deposited. Once a game is played, any remaining
fractional credits are erased.
Generally, most countries have a factory
default setting. This setting can be adjusted
(as described above), but will return if the
game memory is cleared. Some programs,
depending on the key used, have a currency
default display located to the left of the coin
inputs. It shows the currency value for each
of the coin inputs. This display is used as a

mode. During gameplay, the time remaining
and amount owed by the player will be
displayed on screen. When the time block
runs out, players can purchase additional
time. Otherwise, the machine will disable
and the amount owed by the player will
display on screen. No further gameplay
can occur until the machine is reset using
the PIN. If the player leaves the game
before the purchased time block has ended,
the game can be reset using the PIN.

CORRECTIVE ACTION
When the game is turned on, it will check the type of touchscreen
controller, motherboard and hard drive. If one of these does not match
with FORCE hardware, the game will power up and display “MAXX” on
the screen and it will not have the H2H category.
Make sure the game is only using FORCE hardware.

Check for scratches or a defective CD.
Try a different CD-ROM drive or another set of CDs.
If you’re downloading a CD set, make sure each CD is of the same
revision.
•
This message can be caused by the hard drive or in some
program versions, a coin jam while the game is turned on.
1.
Turn the game off.
2.
Locate DS 1, position 8 and turn it on.
3.
Turn on power to the cabinet. This will start the
hard drive checksum test, which should take about
20 minutes to complete.
4.
When the hard drive passes the test it will display
a "CHECKSUM GOOD" message and continue to
boot up into the game attract screens. This
indicates a coin jam.
5.

•
PM0484-08
When the hard drive fails the test, the game will
lock up with a "CHECKSUM ERROR" message,
which will stay on the screen until the power is
turned off. In this case, the hard drive will have to
be replaced.
This message indicates the motherboard is not receiving data from the
hard drive and has locked up.
Check the IDE ribbon cable connections to the motherboard and
•
hard drive.
Check the power to the hard drive. It should have +5 volts, +12
•
volts, and ground.
The self-diagnostics on the hard drive has detected an error.
The hard drive will have to be replaced.
•
•
Try reloading the program onto the hard drive with a different set of
update CD’s compatible with the security key. If it will not accept the
download, try another CD-ROM drive. If it still does not work,
replace the hard drive.
