How to Tell if a Drift Game Needs Original, Upgrade or Conversion Software

 

Everyone:

I’ve noticed that there has been some confusion among many technicians about the types of Drift software out there, so I’m attempting to clarify things:

  1. An original Drift (bought new as a Drift) just needs Drift software (not conversion or upgrade). That doesn’t mean that the original disc(s) will work, because the PC inside the cabinet may have a motherboard or video card that has been replaced. It just means that you should not request Upgrade or Conversion software.
  2. If the game was originally a Fast and Furious and is now a Drift, it will require Upgrade software.
  3. If the game was originally some other racing game, it will need Conversion software. California Speed, CART Fury, Csuis’n USA, Cruis’n Exotica, Off Road Challenge, Rush the Rock, Rush 2049 and  San Francisco Rush are examples of these other games.
  4. Look at the cabinet. Pay attention to the controls, the shape of the wood sides, and other molded plastic shapes. Note that sometimes parts of the plastic will be missing. Refer to the pictures.
  5. When requesting a replacement PC or a PC component such as a video card, power supply, etc., specify whether the game is an Original, Upgrade, or Conversion, and if the PC is a Dell  or not. You may be asked to describe or send a picture of the cabinet or the rear of the PC. Try to understand the necessity of this: it’s very important that we get it right the first time, and this extra effort is far less time and trouble than sending out the wrong item(s), then having to figure out the error later, then correct it by sending out more items.

Thanks in advance.
