openITG DDR Converted Cabinet Questions

Postby Wulfgearr on Thu Jun 11, 2015 10:48 pm

Hey guys. I've got some questions about this cabinet that's coming to an arcade of ours in the next few days. I've been digging around forums for a while an was unsure of the lingo and unsure of where to look for my questions. I'd really appreciate your support. Before I dive in, the cabinet has already been converted and the OS/exe/system runs smoothly. The only USB drives I'm able to get access to are located on the cabinet motherboard itself (yes, after digging the whole thing out). There are no external USB slots anywhere else. Unfortunately, my familiarity with openITG is extremely limited as this is the first cabinet I've ever played on/torn apart. It has a few custom songs loaded as well (Broadway Blast 4, DDR mixes, ITG 1 and 2), so clearly it's possible to mod some more. Also the theme is ITG3. So my questions are as follows:

1. What do I need to do about uploading further content and deleting unwanted content?

2. Is there a semi user friendly step-by-step walkthrough of general modding so I can expand my knowledge about this cabinet?

3. What software/equipment will I need to perform said tasks?

If needed, I have a picture I can upload of the motherboard, though I doubt it will help much. I hope I was clear enough in my explanations as we haven't had an ITG cabinet to play on in nearly 7 years. This is a much anticipated arrival. I'm working with the more tech savvy manager at the arcade, so if need be, a detailed explanation could potentially help my cause.

Thanks in advance.

Is this the DDRX > OITG machine at Copper Monkey Laserport in Portland, OR?

Oh god, did someone install oITG in a Betson US DDR X cab?

Huh, never seen oITG on a betson ddrx cab. Quite frankly didn't know it was possible.

This machine is actually in North Alabama. It looks like an old Extreme or Supernova cabinet tbh.

I'm not sure what location this cabinet originally came from. That being said, @SM MaxX and @mute pointed me in the right direction. Some things were a little different from mute's thread (like BIOS commands and accessing BIOS), but apart from some experimentation, I successfully modded it. So thank you guys. Took me about 2 hours after it was all said and done. Tearing it apart multiple times, navigating linux, etc. I may even post some simfiles I've uploaded to the cabinet that I've made for the community. But once again, thanks for your help.
