DDR 7th Mix upgrade to 8th mix possible?

Post by JzN » Tue Apr 09, 2013 7:42 pm

Sorry didnt know whether this is the right section for this.

If i have the 7th mix and purchase the 8th mix (extreme):

- 1x 32MB CF Flash Card
- 1x Security Cartridge (located inside the case)
- 1x DDR Extreme 8th Mix Game CD
- 1x DDR Extreme 8th Mix Jamma System

Is it swappable with the 7th mix?

Yes, this is possible, if I recall the process you need to take is:

Boot up your machine and eject the 7th mix CD out of the CD-ROM drive that is attached to the game's motherboard (aka the "573" system) which will be enclosed in a really obvious metallic box inside the cabinet.

Insert your 8th mix CD

Flip one of the DIP switches (DIP switch #4, I *think*, they are labeled)

Reboot the cabinet

The machine will boot from the CD-ROM (this is what flipping the DIP switch does) and Extreme will install

Once the install process is complete, flip the DIP switch back to its original position

Reboot the cabinet

Play the best DDR mix
