DRAGON'S LAIR FEATURED IN NETFLIX SERIES - A Dragon's Lair arcade game makes an appearance in the first episode of the second season of the Netflix series "Stranger Things", set in late 1984.  The main characters huddle around the cabinet and play the game; however, the on-screen game footage was poorly integrated into the scene.  The game action was filmed separately from the cabinet and the actors, as tight closeups on a non-original monitor.  The bad editing of these video clips leaves a big sense of detachment from the rest of the arcade scene and the inability to suspend disbelief that the characters are actually playing.

DRAGON'S LAIR PROJECT TURNS 20 YEARS OLD!! - On August 25, 2017, the Dragon's Lair Project website celebrated its 20th anniversary on the internet.  The site, originally titled "Project Dragon's Lair", went online on August 25, 1997.  It started out as a single page with ten pictures showing the restoration of a Dragon's Lair cabinet.  Within a few weeks, a couple more pages were added as the site's popularity began to grow.  Twenty years later and over seven million visitors, the site is the largest laserdisc gaming website in the world.  Special thanks to all who were involved over the years.

NEW DEXTER FIRMWARE - An important update to the Dexter firmware is now available (for all games) which addresses an inherent bug that affects the composite video output signal on all Raspberry Pi 2 boards and improves Dexter's overall video quality, clarity and sharpness.  While mainly aesthetic, the improvement also constitutes a significant advancement in the ongoing efforts to make Dexter compatible with the game Star Rider, which relies heavily on the integrity of the video signal for its operation.  The update is strongly recommended for all games and can be applied to Dexter's USB drive with the Dexter Manager software.

DRAGON'S LAIR II ENHANCEMENT ON MERLIN-DX / DEXTER - The most complete version of DL2E is now available.  The DL2E software brings Time Warp to the Cinematronics laserdisc arcade cabinets as was planned in 1984.  New to this version, the alternate scene that was omitted from the 1991 DL2 laserdisc is now realized through the use of the Dexter laserdisc replacement.  This also marks the third distinct game selectable for play in the Merlin-Dx multigame sytem.

ANOTHER PRODUCTION RUN ANNOUNCED FOR DEXTER - The pre-order period has begun for another 300 units of the Dexter laserdisc replacement.  The cut-off date is July 10, 2017.  However, if the past is any indication, they may be expected to sell out before that time.

DRAGON'S LAIR ON RECENT TELEVISION, AGAIN - A Dragon's Lair arcade game appeared once again on "The Goldbergs" on February 15, 2017, in the episode "The Spencer's Gift", once again with interaction from main character Adam, albeit operator interaction this time, not player interaction.

SPACE ACE IS SET FOR RELEASE IN HD DVD FORMAT - The high definition HD DVD version of Space Ace was created and finished in 2007 by Digital Leisure, but it was then cancelled and never released when the format war was lost to Blu-ray.  The Personal Computer Museum is resurrecting the HD DVD version in a licensed, limited 250 copy release and is also including some special bonus perks in an Indiegogo campaign.  Various gameplay options and video commentary from the creators will be included.  November 2016 shipment is estimated.
