Site Preparation
In determining the location for your Megatouch XL
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.
the CPU and CRT-500 I/O boards, the power supply
and the main harness; in the upright and cabaret
versions, the CPU section houses the CPU and
CRT-500 I/O boards, the power supply, the main
harness, the CD player and volume control.
The Dallas key and boot PROM are located on the
CRT-500 I/O board, as is the volume control for the
countertop version. The volume control for the
upright and cabaret models, is located at the front of
the PC shelf (see Figures 4, 6 and 7 for locations).

Screen Calibration
Follow the instructions below for degaussing a
monitor.
The machine must be in the idle mode or game
select mode to calibrate the touchscreen.
•
Find the “CALIBRATE” button located behind the
coin mech and press it to enter the screen
calibration mode.
•
Touch the center of the first circle that appears
on the screen. Once you release your finger, a
second circle will appear on the screen.
NOTE: YOU MUST HOLD YOUR FINGER ON THE CIRCLE
FOR APPROXIMATELY 2 SECONDS FOR THE
CALIBRATION TO BE RECOGNIZED.
•
Touch the center of the second circle that
appears on the screen.
•
Once the second circle is touched, a crosshair
will appear on the screen. To test the calibration
of the screen, touch the crosshair with your
finger and slowly drag your finger around the
screen. The crosshair should follow your
movement.
•
1. Plug in your degaussing coil.
2. Hold the coil about three feet from the monitor,
press the trigger to activate the magnetic field
(for circular-shaped coils, orient the coil so you
see the monitor through the hole in the middle;
for wand-shaped coils, point the wand towards
the screen).
3. Move the coil in a circular motion around the
face of the monitor and slowly approach the
game.
4. Continuing to move the coil in a circular motion,
slowly back away from the monitor.
5a. CIRCULAR-SHAPED COILS: When you are
about three feet away, quickly turn the coil
perpendicular to the monitor and release the
trigger.
5b. WAND-SHAPED COILS: When you are about
three feet away, point the wand away from the
monitor and release the trigger.
Touch the “EXIT TEST” icon.
NOTE: On upright models, if you open the
monitor door while the machine is on, you will
have to recalibrate the touchscreen.
Degaussing your Monitor
If your monitor is displaying “purity problems,” (a
display with purity problems will have parts of an allwhite screen affected by blotches of color) the
monitor needs to be degaussed using a “degaussing
coil.” A degaussing coil is a circular electromagnet,
used to cancel out any stray magnetic fields that may
build up on a metal object.
Monitor Colors Adjustment
Procedure
For adjusting the colors on any of our monitor types,
we suggest following the procedures described
below.
The vertical/horizontal controls and
brightness/contrast controls are located on the
monitor control panel, Velcroed inside the game. The
monitor RGB controls are located on the monitor
neckboard. Adjust the RGB controls until the screens
look as suggested in the following steps.
Ducksan/Telco/Tatung Monitors
All of our monitors have built-in degaussing coils that
are automatically activated on power-up. If your
game is experiencing minor purity problems, try
powering down the game for 5 minutes and then
reapplying power to activate the degaussing coil. If
the problem is not corrected, you will have to use a
manual degaussing coil.
PM0109-0D
1. Set the game to the Run 21 game screen.
2. Adjust the vertical and horizontal size and
vertical and horizontal position to make sure that
the game screen fills the monitor screen and that
the game screen is centered.
3. Adjust the brightness and contrast controls until
the playing cards are a light, ivory color.
(Adjusting the brightness and contrast can also
correct for a lack of sharpness in the picture.)

SUBSTANCES.
Cleaning the Compact Disc and CD Player
The cabinet should be cleaned with a damp cloth
and mild detergent.
•
Clean the CD and CD player approximately
every 90 days, or if you experience any problems
with the CD player.
•
CD cleaning supplies can be purchased from
your local record store or audio supply house.
Cleaning the Touchscreen Monitor
•
The touchscreen glass should be cleaned with a

PM0109-0D
To activate the game for use with a CD-ROM lens
cleaner, turn off the game and set DIP Switch 2-1 to
“ON.” Turn on the game and follow the instructions
displayed on the screen.
Fan Operation
•
To ensure proper operation of the game, it is
important that all fans are operating correctly
and that the air flow 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.
Troubleshooting
Coin Jam
The game also has coin jam and stringing detection
software. Should a coin become jammed in the
mech or someone tries to string the mech, a
continuous tone will be emitted by the game and the
words “COIN JAM” will be displayed on the screen.
If the game emits the coin jam indicator sound when
powered up, this may indicate that the NORMALLY
CLOSED contacts of the coin mechanism are being
used. The NORMALLY OPEN contacts must be
used.

The coin/credit ratios of the game may be adjusted to meet any application. The CPU board supports up to four coin
inputs, mechanical or electronic. (Electronic coin mechs are typically used when more than one type of coin needs to
be accepted. If you would like to convert your game from a mechanical mech to an electronic mech, please contact
your distributor or Merit Technical Support for wiring details.)
The coin/credit ratios can be adjusted by touching the screen at the location you want to change. The meter pulse can
also be adjusted so that the coin meter can show the actual cash value of the coins in the cashbox, not just the total
number of coins.
Example: Let’s say that in the country of Atlantis the currency is called units. Atlantis, however, has a 1 unit coin, a 2
unit coin and a 5 unit coin. You decide that 1 credit on the game should cost 1 unit. However, to encourage more play
you want to give 6 credits for a 5 unit coin. The coin setup screen would be programmed as follows:

For every 1 unit coin, the game would give 1 credit and count 1 pulse on the mechanical coin counter. For every 2 unit
coin, the game would give 2 credits and count 2 pulses on the mechanical meter. For every 5 unit coin, the game would
give 6 credits and pulse the mechanical meter 5 times. The mechanical meter will now display the total number of
“units” in the cashbox, not total coins or credits. Press “DEFAULT” to return to the factory settings. Press “EXIT” to
return to the GAME SETUP menu.
Any unused coin inputs must be set to the same settings as the LOWEST of the used inputs for the credit algorithm to
work properly. See COIN INPUT 4E for an example.
