I know someone who installed onto a 780 just a couple weeks ago and he confirmed that itís as easy as running the SRD, game discs then adding the drivers I mentioned before.
He installed directly to an SSD.

Good to know. From my post above I got a working everlast in the game I bought, it came with the pga tour challenge welcome kit, cards, promo flyers, etc. Really neat finding all that stuff in the bottom of the cab.
It also came with a new SRD and the 3 team challenge install disks.
It works fine as is, but I want to build a faster/better machine so it runs super smooth and quick.
thanks for your replies :)

I'm thinking about chopping this cabinet in half and making it a pedestal. I hate to cut it up but can't find a decent lcd to for in the cabinet without a ton of wasted space. I dunno tho, i hate to chop it up. Has anyone here made theirs a pedestal?

You must be Martie57 on YouTube.  😆
Check my other YouTube videos for examples of full standup cabinet with 30Ē IPS monitor as well as a pedestal cab. Might help you decide what to do.

ah so you're the guy who posted the pedestal cab on youtube eh?
It gave me some great ideas for mine. I hate to chop it down, but not being able to find a lcd monitor that fits in the space the one I have sucks, and I'd rather run the game on a larger screen at a higher resolution anyway, tbh.
I'm gonna have 4 pedestals and flat screens in my basement. But it's ok.
I can't wait for the weekend to get here so I can get started on this thing.

The game only runs in 800 x 600. You canít improve the resolution.

I have a 30Ē IPS dell ultra sharp monitor in my cab. Itís pretty sweet.

well I ended up chopping my cab in half (easier to drag down to the basement myself)
instead of doing a downward angle on the back half of the cab, I opted to cut the back part flat and make a little shelf, using the board from the top of the cab (it fit almost perfectly) . I was debating cutting the cab down in depth, like removing the last 10" or so, but I would have had to remove the wheels, and the levelers, so I left it at the stock depth, but made a shelf on the back half for a tv to sit on. My router hasn't come in yet so I don't have a slot cut for the t molding, but it plays as is. Right now it's just got an old pc monitor on the little shelf, but I'm gonna buy a 32"ish tv tomorrow to put on there and call it a day.
 the little monitor doesn't move while playing, so I doubt a tv will be wiggling a whole lot with the leg levelers down. Worst case I'll drill a few holes into the tv base and bolt it to the shelf on the cab, but I don't even think that is necessary tbh.
My son and I have been playing all afternoon, loving the game. Now I need to look into customizing the golfers and skins.

The reason I cut mine on an angle at the back is so I could have the vent to release any warm air created from the computer.
I actually picked up another cabinet yesterday and I intend to chop it to a pedestal as well as itís in rough shape.
I think itís pretty common to do it the way you did though.
Glad to hear youíre enjoying it.

It's a lot of work chopping them cabs down and putting them back together, taking all the stuff out, etc.
Rewarding, but it's a good day of work. forgot about the upper vent, my ped is the height of the backdoor that was on the cab.
I think I'm just gonna use a holesaw and cut a hole in the back for a pc exhaust fan, connected to one of the power supply headers.

Today I'm gonna work on cutting down a silver strike cab into a pedestal. Gonna use that to house my silver strike live and bags games.

If you put a vent at the back, wouldnít it be blocked/covered when the machine is pressed up against the wall?
This was my thinking, anyway.

Are you guys joined up to the server to play tournaments?

Also, there *is* a way to increase the resolution......    but the 2d graphic overlays stay at their original locations for a 800x600 screen so they kinda get in the way :-/




As far as hardware, you CAN get this running on up to windows 8.1 and a modern machine (my cabinet is running on a core2duo 8400 and a gt 610)... but it's a very, very manual process.  Otherwise, you need specific drivers to make it all work on "newer" dell hardware.

If you aren't joined, join the owners group on Facebook -- that's super active and you can get much more help/info on there including installation discs, drivers, etc.. and get your machines joined up to play tournaments.. The newer tournaments are running *new* courses not in the actual game (extracted from earlier versions of the arcade game like Pebble Beach, etc)....

You currently have challenge edition.

You need to install Team Challenge before installing the All-Access pass

To upgrade from Challenge to Team Challenge, youíll need the recovery disc for Team Challenge and the TC game discs 1-3 as well as a TC dongle.
