Flat 17-inch touchscreen monitor for Megatouch Force, ION, and other bar-top video games. Larger size, improved touch response, high resolution."LITE" means light-weight and footprint similar to average computer monitor. Modular, self-powered, built-in speakers, A/V controls, and audio out. No need for bulky, heavy, expensive coin-op machine, simply plug n' play with Megatouch ION or Force boardset, no hacks.
Force can use a USB connection for touchscreen as ION does. Disassemble and part-out to restore original coin-op machine if desired. Add VGA switch-box to allow sharing monitor with other games, computers, tv, etc. Great as workbench monitor for game builds/testing/troubleshooting. Better quality components and user interface.
Video and audio controls right out front below screen. Maybe loaded with dust bunnies, grime, nicotine, and exploding capacitors from thousands of hours of greasy drunken fingers pounding it in some burger n' wings joint... Set-up a small, clean, well-ventilated game system case under your coffee table, desk, or home bar, and have only this slender flat screen monitor up top for fun! Experienced players will appreciate how much more responsive this monitor is compared to the originals, and it was never before used for gaming so has very little "milage" on it.Collectors and tinkerers who love their original coin-op games will also love this monitor on their workbench or on their desk at work where it doubles as a dock for their regular PC, for testing board-sets and drives, and maybe even for use as a TV monitor. Trouble is, when they get used to the better touch sensitivity, they might not want to play on their original machines anymore..
Units available here are nice, tested, gently used. Be careful, there are plenty of touch monitors for sale online that look identical to these but will NOT work with Megatouch nor other games. That's the spectrum, and that's just for a monitor, no game.A used touchscreen might cost 100, LCD panel another 100, touch controller 50-ish... But all of those are together right inside this monitor along with controls and connectors worth something too.
Having spare parts on the shelf ain't a bad idea either. Remember, a lot of Wurlitzer jukes, pinball and Pacman machines went to the dump before they became precious collector's items. The good ol' touchscreen games you played at bars back in your 20's may be headed for a similar fate, and in a few short years the parts will be a lot harder to find. If you don't already have a Megatouch game or board-set, we can help you with that too.
Keep heat sinks and airways clean and all fans spinning at top speed! If any doubt at all, replace fans with new ones. Renew CPU heatsink compound if you're handy with that sort of thing. Replace CPU fan if self-test speed reports less than 4000rpm.
Confirm that power supply voltages are correct, and if the power supply gets very hot, replace with one rated for 250 to 300Watts or more, which runs cooler and helps all components last longer. Watch for bulging tops on failing can-shaped electrolytic capacitors, but don't replace them yourself unless you have significant soldering experience.If game does nothing at all when switched on, possibly just dead button cell CMOS battery on motherboard. Read about jumper-starting ATX power supplies (or write me), gently replace battery, connect a keyboard to the game's motherboard, startup with delete button pressed, set BIOS date and time, disable any boot device other than ATAPI CD and IDE, set Fail-Safe Defaults, then set Optimized Defaults. On Midway Infinity, no jumper-startup needed, just press F1 or F2 at start-up, set time & date, disable floppy A drive and set IDE as first and only boot device. If you're handy with computers, keep a spare CPU chip and RAM cards in your toolbox for testing and have on hand the correct CD/DVD player and your favorite game software on a CD/DVD to re-install if ever you have to replace the game's hard drive. Or, if you got your game for cheap, you certainly can afford to stock up on a few basic maintenance items!
