Use the "Accel" button to accelerate. Use the "Brake" button to brake your cycle. Use the joystick to maneuver the cycle over the terrain and through the city. A helicopter will arrive that will drop "power-up" items that will assist you during the race. Capture these items for additional fuel, to increase speed, to award extra points or special helpers to destroy other bikers. Special road signs will alert you to a gas station, the goal or a railroad crossing ahead.

The game ends when your run out of fuel or do not qualify for the next race.

This manual will guide you in the conversion of your color monitor upright video game into a "RALLY BIKE" game. We urge you to read through the instructions before beginning the conversion.

 

WARNINGS AND NOTICES

For safety and reliability, Taito America Corporation does not recommend nor authorize and substitute parts or modifications of Taito America Corporation equipment.

Use of non-Taito America parts and modifications of game circuitry may adversely affect game performance and safety.

Substitute parts or equipment modifications may void FCC acceptance.

Since "RALLY BIKE" is protected by Federal Copyright, trademark and patent laws, unauthorized versions of this game are illegal under Federal Law. This also applies to unauthorized facsimiles of Taito America Equipment, logos, designs, publications, assemblies and games (or features not deemed to be in the public domain) whether manufactured with Taito America components or not.

 

 

NOTICE

Parts salvaged from your old game are required to complete your kit. These salvaged parts MUST operate perfectly, or the converted game can not perform properly or safely. Always repair circuit board malfunctions and cabinet damage before conversion is attempted.

Check the parts supplied in this kit against the parts list included in this manual.

 

CAUTION

For safe operation it is recommended the game be grounded. This game should be equipped with a three conductor power cable. The third conductor is the ground conductor and when the cable is plugged into an appropriate receptacle, the game is grounded. The offset pin on the power cable's three-prong connector is the ground connection. Do not use an adapter plug to defeat the ground pin on the power cord.

 

NOTICE

This kit is not intended for use with X-Y monitors. Suitable monitors are the horizontal or vertical raster-scan with inputs for red, green and blue video as well as composite negative sync. (These should be compatible with TTL logic levels.)

Note: "RALLY BIKE" uses a vertical monitor.

 

NOTICE

Be sure the power supply from your old game is capable of +5 vdc regulated at 6A and +12 vdc regulated at 1A. These operating voltages are necessary for your kit. Please note the enclosed warning with the PC Board Assembly.

GAME PREPARATION

 

CLEANING

The exterior of the game, all metal parts and all plastic parts can be cleaned with non-abrasive cleaner. Caution should be used when cleaning the plastic. A dry cloth can cause scratches and result in a foggy worn appearance. Plexiglass cleaner on a soft cloth is suggested to maintain and keep your monitor crt cover looking new.

 

CABINET

Inspect your cabinet for any gouges or items stuck on the cabinet like chewing gum. Remove all foreign objects and fill in the gouges with any type of quick hardening wood putty. Sand to ensure the surface is smooth. Wipe the outside of the old cabinet clean. Remember the reason you are converting your old game is to have the earnings of a new game. Making your game look like a new game will increase your earnings and spark player-interest.

 

NOTICE

Please make sure you clean the coin mechanisms. It is important that you service them in order for this game to achieve the maximum possible earning.

 

CONVERSION INSTRUCTIONS

Remove the new "RALLY BIKE" marquee from the kit. This new marquee provided with your kit is specifically designed for ease of handling. Place and center the old marquee on top of the new marquee. Place masking tape in the area where you intend to cut the new marquee. Using an x-acto knive score the new marquee and simply break at this score. If your old marquee is made of glass, remove the paint of the old marquee and attach the new marquee behind this glass. If your old marquee is made of plexiglass, it is recommended that new clear plexiglass be used to best provide the brilliance of your new marquee.

Remove the backing from the "RALLY BIKE" lexan and apply it over the old control panel being careful to avoid air pockets.

After the lexan is securely on, with an x-acto knife or razor blade cut the holes on the control panel. Install the new joystick, buttons and any hardware that might have been removed on the control panel and tighten them down.

Attach the additional stickers marked "Accel" and "Brake" to the control panel.

 

WIRING PROCEDURES

INSTALLING INTERBOARD WIRING

This game comes with a color-coded cable for easy installation. Refer to the wiring diagram included in this manual for quick connections.

Disconnect the old wiring harness from the old CPU board.

Carefully remove old circuit boards and FCC cages from the game.

Using the diagrams from your old game, carefully note the function of each wire.

Leaving several inches of wire from the old wiring harness at each connector, cut the wires near the game's coin door, monitor, control panel, power supply and speaker wires. Install the new wiring harness to those points following your wiring diagram. Use electrical tape or heat-shrink tubing to insulate all splices.

Install your FCC cage where the old board set was.

Mount the "RALLY BIKE" PCB assembly with the mounting blocks provided in the center of the FCC cage. Plug the wiring harness onto the PCB and close the cage securely. The board cage in this kit must be properly installed and terminated to ground.

Check and clean the input jack on the power supply board. Replace any burned or damaged pins.

 

GAME PLAY AND DIP SWITCH SETTINGS

"RALLY BIKE" has been designed with dip switches for operator-adjustable features for maximum earnings in your location. The dip switch chart provided in this manual will allow you to customize the game for your location. For "on screen" switch settings turn switch 7 of Dip Switch 2 ON.

If done properly your game should look new. The conversion is complete.

 

WE APPRECIATE YOUR PURCHASE OF TAITO AMERICA'S "RALLY BIKE" KIT AND SINCERELY HOPE THAT THE GAME PROVIDES MANY HOURS OF CONTINUED EARNINGS AND ENJOYMENT FOR YOU AND YOUR PLAYERS.

PLEASE LOOK TO TAITO AMERICA CORPORATION TO ALWAYS PROVIDE THE VERY BEST IN VIDE ENTERTAINMENT FOR YOU!
