3SECURING IN PLACE (ADJUSTER ADJUSTMENT)

Be sure to have all the Adjusters make contact with the surface. Unless the Adjusters come into contact with the surface, the Cabinet can move of itself, causing an accident.

This machine has 4 each of casters and adjusters (shown below). When the installation position is determined, cause the adjusters to come into contact with the floor directly, make adjustments in a manner so that the casters will be raised approximately 5mm. from the floor and make sure that the machine position is level.

1Move the machine to the installation position.

2Cause all of the leg levelers to make contact with the floor. By using a wrench, make adjustments in the height of the leg adjusters to ensure that the machine's position is level.

3After making adjustments, fasten the leg adjuster nut upward and secure the height of the leg adjuster.

4POWER SUPPLY

Ensure that the power cord is not exposed on the surface (passage, etc.). If exposed, they can be caught and are susceptible to damage. If damaged, the cord can cause an electric shock or short circuit.

Ensure that the wiring position is not in the customer's passage way or the wiring has protective covering.

Connect the game to the power supply and turn on power to the game. Before connecting power supply be sure that power switch is off

1Turning the AC unit’s main switch on will cause the machine to start the power check and network check automatically.

2In the Power On check, the steering wheel turns left and right, and then returns to the centering position and stops. In this check, the values of the VR inside the control panel are corrected.

3Until this check is finished, and the steering wheel stops, do not touch the steering wheel or play the game.

If you do, the steering reaction during the game (reaction at the time of course-out or crash) can not be obtained correctly. In the case of an abnormal reaction during the game, turn power on again from the beginning and complete the power on check.

In the TEST mode menu, selecting C.R.T. TEST allows the screen (on which the projector is tested) to be displayed. Although the projector adjustments have been made at the same time of shipment from the factory, color deviation, etc., may occur due to the effect caused by geomagnitism, the location building’s steel frames and other game machines in the periphery. By watching the test mode screen, make judgement as to whether an adjustment is needed. If it is neccessary, adjust the projector by refering to Section 9.

Perform the above inspections also at the time of monthly inspection.

6 . CONTENTS OF GAME

The following explanations apply to the case the product is functioning satisfactorily. Should there be any moves different from the following contents, some sort of faults may have occured. Immediately look into the cause of the fault and eliminate the cause thereof to ensure satisfactory operation. During the Advertise mode, the Billboard’s Decoration Lamp lights up periodically. When the machine is energized, the Billboard’s Fluorescent Lamp is always lit. The Steering Wheel repeats centering action periodically. Automatic centering will apply to the Steering Wheel if it is not centered. During the Advertise Mode, sound is emitted from the Speaker beside the Monitor.

OUTLINE OF GAME

The Player as a taxi driver picks up a passanger (hereafter customer) randomly appearing on the the Game Field waiting for a taxi, and takes the Customer tot he desired destination. Time Limit is set for each Customer (displayed on the upper left-hand side of Customer while traveling). If the taxi takes Customer to the destination within the time limit, Customer pays the fare (the player earns points.).

On the contrary, if the player fails to take the Customer to the destination within the time limit, Customer will get off and results in no fare (no points) for the player. The Player is to accomplish the above within the time limit of the game (displayed on the upper left-hand side of the screen) repetitively as many times as possible. When time limit becomes zero (0), the game is over. The game is aimed at earning money as much as possible by taking as many Customers as possible to their destinations within the time limit.

HOW TO OPERATE

The operation of Steering Wheel, and Accelerator & Brake pedals are similiar to an actual car. SHIFT LEVER

Input to (D) towards the monitor side to drive forward, and to (R) towards you to reverse. Auto transmission and not manual is applied to speed shifting. The DR LAMP displays Forward (D) and Reverse (R), whichever is being inputted.

HOW TO PLAY

1Insert a coin.

Coin insertion causes credit(s) to be displayed on the screen. For example, in the case of 2 coins one credit setting, “INSERT COIN(S) CREDIT(S) 1/2” is displayed when one coin is inserted.

2Inserting one play worth of coin(s) causes “PRESS START BUTTON” to be displayed and the START BUTTON to flash. Press the START BUTTON to have the character mode appear on this screen.

3In the Character Select Mode, select on-screen player character. Turn the Steering Wheel left or right to shift to each character select mode. Press the START button or step on either of Accel. or Brake pedal to decide on the character being displayed.

4While the Character Select Mode is displayed, countdown is executed. Counting down to (0) causes the character being displayed to be selected automatically.

5When the character is determined, the game starts. The Taxi picks up the Customer who has the $ Mark above him/her. There is a circular mark signifying the Stop Area in the periphery of Customer. Stop the taxi in the Stop Area.

When the taxi comletely stops in the Stop Area, the onscreen scene shifts and Customer rides in automatically. At this time, the taxi is in status not operable.

When the Customer rides in, the neccessary time to the destination is added to the Game’s Time Limit.

The color of the $ mark represents the distance of the destination. Green indicates the furthest destination. The distance becomes shorter sequentially in order of green-- >yellowish green-->yellow-->-->orange-->red.

6Take the Customer to the destination. While traveling to the destination, time limit and the arrow showing the direction of destination are displayed on the screen.

6The following explains as regards how to earn FARE (or score points). The minimum fare is earned at the time the taxi picks up the Customer.

Basically, the best way to earn FARE is to take the Customer to their destiantion as fast as possible. In other words, since the time remaining when reaching the destination is converted into FARE, the more remaining time is, the greater the FARE the player earns.

In addition to the above, receiving a tip is another way of increasing the FARE. The tip awarded for doing some-

thing to please the customer is added to the FARE. Details are as follows:

Tip for dodging: Awarded when dodging other (ordinary) car at the very critical moment.

Tip for Jumping: Awarded when the taxi jumps over trailers, etc.

Tips for drifting: Awarded when the taxi drifts.

When awarding tips, coins are sent in a flying motion from the Customer towards the FARE METER. If tips are consecutively earned, the earning rate increases (in combo) This combo effect resets if the taxi bumps against another ordinary car.

The combo display appears below the FARE METER.

The Customer’s fare is not added to the TOTAL FARE unless the Customer is taken to the destination.

7When reaching the destination, drop off the Customer. Stop the taxi within the destination area mark. When the taxi completely stops within the area, the on-screen shifts to evaluation mode and the customer gets of automatically. the Customer’s evaluation displayed in characters depends on the remaining seconds of the Customer time when reaching the destination.

SPEEDY: Display of more remaining time/money converted from time is paid.

NORMAL: Display of normal remaining time/normal amount of money converted from time paid.

SLOW: Display of less remaining time/less amount of money converted from time is paid.

After suming up the above, the Customer’s FARE is determined and then the FARE is added to the TOTAL FARE. After TOTAL FARE calculations, the player ranking is displayed. The ranking is based on the score data of the 99 players played in the past.

8If the remaining time of the Customer becomes zero, the Customer becomes angry and gets off. At this time, the Customer’s FARE is not added to the TOTAL FARE.

9When the Game Time becomes 0, the game is over. The GAME OVER screen appears, with TOTAL EARNED, evaluation comment and RANKING displayed. If any credit(s) which is one play worth or more remains, the START LAMP unlit during game will then flash.
