Step 1: Start-up and Basic Configuration

  1. Turn on the Terminal: Connect the terminal to a power source and turn on the main switch. When the screen lights up, it means that the terminal is ready for use.

Step 2: Play Arcade Games

  1. Access the Arcade Menu: The “Arcade” menu is the heart of your gaming experience. Here you will find a wide selection of classic arcade games. Some games require credits to be inserted to play.
  2. Insert Credits and Play: To insert credits, press the “Credit” button. Once the credits have been added, select the game with the “Start” button corresponding to player 1 or 2. Some games allow a second player to join during the game.

  3. Change Theme: Personalize the appearance of your terminal by changing the theme. Go to the interface options to select a different theme.
