Megatouch / Merit Downloads?
« on: January 04, 2017, 01:28:09 pm »
Hello,

I was wondering if anybody managed to download the support software from Merits website before they shut it down?

Specifically I am looking for the PC program Merit had for creating custom operator ad screens on the PC. I have been playing around recently with the ad screens on my games but from what I have read, the PC software gives you more options.

Thank you

I wasn't really aware of a standalone program.

As far as I know, the ads where created online at their website, then pushed out to the unit through meganet. if your machine(s) where offline you were able to download the ad after completion and insert it to the system through USB.

I personally never used it because the website at the time was crap and most of the assets didn't load. (broken links and missing graphics.) made it frustrating and pointless to use.

not sure, but you can probably create something and manually chuck it in there as long as it was formatted correctly... I think mahkeymike was working off and on on some megatouch graphics stuff... maybe he can chime in.

I never used it to be honest. I might have grabbed it from their site at one point but i am pretty sure i deleted it a long time ago since i had no use for it. I don't even recall what format the images were in. If you have images you created, what format were they in? Its probably as simple as placing a 640x480 jpg or bmp in a specific folder.

I will check this out when  get to my PC. This is what I was looking for if the download links still work to get the program file.

Thank you
