Hardware Reference for GLOBAL VR Games

This page lists I/O PCBs and motherboards used in various games, with a link to BIOS (CMOS) Setup information for each motherboard. The motherboard should be listed on a label on top of the system computer.
If you replace a motherboard, be sure to use one that GLOBAL VR has qualified for the game.
The I/O PCB firmware version is shown on the info screen in the Operator Menu in most games.

Note about Video Card Drivers:  The Video Card in the System Computer creates the image you see on the monitor. Video Cards require specific software drivers to function properly. Manufacturers frequently release new video cards and discontinue old ones, and the new cards require new drivers. GLOBAL VR tests new video cards and qualifies specific models for use in our games. We usually put the drivers on the System Recovery Disk (SRD), but sometimes we provide them on a separate driver disk or patch disk. Please keep software with the specific game it came with to ensure that you have the correct drivers in case you need to re-install software. New SRDs include drivers for older video cards.
Never install an unqualified video card in your game! Even with the correct drivers your game may not work properly.
