Game Description

The Boardwalk cabinet has 4 key-locked

compartments: the CPU section, the coin/bill

acceptor door, the coin box door and the

rear door section.  The keys are contained

in a plastic bag along with a warranty card.

This model also has couplers installed in the

rear of the game which can be used for

future hardware upgrades such as linking

and modem capabilities (see Figure 19).

CPU Section

The CPU section is accessible by unlocking

the control panel and loosening the 2 screws

on the underside of the panel (see Figure

17).  The CPU section houses an electron-

ics box which contains the motherboard,

I/O board, control board, power supply and

hard drive.  There is also external access to

the centronics connector and the meter on

the outside of the electronics box.  The Op-

erator Setup Screen can be accessed by

pushing the SETUP button on the control

board  (see Figure 23).  The accompanying

CALIBRATE button performs a trackball test,

which can also be initiated through the Setup

Screens by selecting Diagnostics, then

Trackball Test.

Coin/Bill Acceptor and Coin Box Doors

The coin/bill acceptor and coin box doors

are located one above the other on the front

of the game, and are key-locked for secu-

rity purposes.  The bill acceptor and coin

mech are located in the top section, while

the coin box is found in the section below.

The top section also houses a red SETUP

button -- situated as a more convenient al-

ternative to the SETUP button found on the

control board -- as well as the dongle socket

required for use with the Recharge Key.

1                                                                     MERIT BOARDWALK OWNER’S MANUAL                                                 PM0591-01

Site Preparation

In determining the location for your

Megatouch Boardwalk™ video game, con-

sideration 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 sepa-

rate circuit is not available, care should be

taken to provide a clean and constant volt-

age.  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.

Setting up your Boardwalk Game

1.

After removing the game from the car-

ton, 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.

There are many custom settings avail-

able for the game.  To customize the

settings, follow the software instruc-

tions in this manual.

Rear Door Section

The rear door section houses the monitor

and related electrical equipment, including

the OSD board.

Security Keys

Merit Boardwalk is equipped with two se-

curity keys.  Key 1, the Main Software Key,

is located on the control board (see Figures

18 and 23).  Key 2, the Countdown Key, is

located on the I/O board (see Figures 18

and 22) and is permanently installed in the

game.

The Countdown Key requires recharging af-

ter 33,000 plays are used.  Once the num-

ber of plays is 3,000 or less, a message will

display in the SETUP Menu to warn opera-

tors that a recharge is needed.  An addi-

tional warning, visible to both operator and

player, will display at 500 available credits.

If the number of credits decreases to 0, the

machine will enter Cripple Mode, during

which Amusement games will be turned off.

An on-screen message will advise that the

machine must be recharged.

The Recharge Key, available as a separate

purchase, will transfer the credits to the per-

manent Countdown Key.  After the recharge

is complete, the Recharge Key is empty and

can be thrown away or reused as an Op-

erator key.  Use the dual dongle socket or

recharge board found in the coin/bill accep-

tor door to perform a recharge.  To purchase

Recharge Key kits, contact your authorized

Merit Distributer.

General  Care and Maintenance

NOTE: THIS GAME MUST ONLY BE SER-
VICED BY QUALIFIED SERVICE  PERSON-
NEL.

CAUTION:

 

THERE ARE HIGH VOLTAGE

PARTS IN THIS GAME. BE CAREFUL
WHEN SERVICING THE INSIDE OF THE
GAME.  THE GAME SHOULD ALWAYS BE
UNPLUGGED BEFORE SERVICING

.

Monitor Adjustment Procedure

The vertical/horizontal controls and bright-

ness/contrast controls are located on the

OSD board, which is secured with Velcro in

the rear compartment of the game (see Fig-

ure 19).  Pressing the button labeled 

Menu

(Select)

 on the OSD board will show the

on-screen display on the monitor.  Use the

Up

 and 

Down

 buttons to move through the

menu.  Press Menu again to choose the op-

tion you want to change.  Use the Up and

Down buttons to change the option.  Press

the 

Exit

 button to deselect an option.  Adjust

the monitor controls until the screens look

as suggested in the following steps.

1.

Set the game to play “Skee Ball”.

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 con-

trols using “Skee Ball” as a guide.  The

target area for the skee ball should be

a rich red with white scoring zones,

while the ball itself should be brown.

(Adjusting the brightness and contrast

can also correct for a lack of sharp-

ness.)

The Exit button also performs 

Degaussing

when the Menu options are not enabled.  To

ensure proper performance, It is recom-

mended that the color tube be degaussed in

the position in which it will be operated.

General Circuit Board Handling

Information

Before handling any boards, observe the

following procedures:

Prevent Electro-Static Discharge by:

1. Storing the boards in the anti-

static 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 BAT-
TERY ON THE MOTHERBOARD.  THERE
IS A DANGER OF EXPLOSION IF THE
BATTERY ON THE MOTHERBOARD IS
INCORRECTLY REPLACED.  ONLY RE-
PLACE THE BATTERY WITH THE SAME
TYPE RECOMMENDED BY THE MANU-
FACTURER.  DISPOSE OF USED BATTER-
IES ACCORDING TO THE
MANUFACTURER’S INSTRUCTIONS.

Cleaning the Cabinet

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 electron-

ics inside.

Cleaning the Monitor Plexiglass

The monitor Plexiglass should be

cleaned with a damp cloth and isopro-

pyl alcohol or a 

non-ammonia

 cleanser.

NOTE:  Do not use any abrasive solvents,
acid, or vinegar-based cleansers on the
Plexiglass or side decals.  Over time,
such cleansers could harm the
Plexiglass and erase the decals.  Be
careful not to use commercial clean-
ers 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 fea-

ture 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 prob-

lem arises without needing a technician

present.  If you want to disable the watch-

dog timer, set DIP switch 3 on the I/O board

to the open position and reboot the game.

Games Menu

Game Setup

The game list and prices, as well as game

options, are programmed using these

screens.  The Game Setup Screen shows

the game menu positions available, with the

list at the bottom showing all available games.

FIGURE 4 - GAMES MENU: GAME SETUP

To Enter This Screen, Select “Game

Setup” on the Games Menu

The Game Setup Screen also allows you to

make these general changes:

Default Games

:  Resets the selected cat-

egory menu to its default game and price

settings.

Clear One

:  Clears a selected item from the

player’s game menu.

Clear All

:  Clears all games from the player’s

game menu.

Enable All Games

:  Turns on all games

within the selected category and defaults

the price settings.

Coin-In Menu

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 ad-

just the cost of a credit, as well as provide a

way to give players “bonus” credits for de-

positing a higher amount of money.  Use the

left and right arrows to change the number

of credits.

When programming the Coin-In Menu, Chan-

nel 1 is set for the lowest value coin, Chan-

nel 2 for the next highest value, etc.  Meter

pulses are independent of credits and only

track the unit of currency.   Players can be

given an incentive to deposit more money

by giving them “bonus” credits for deposit-

ing larger denominations.  Coins may be de-

posited in any combination of values and

the game will automatically register the high-

est 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
