Laserdisc Pressing - M.A.C.H 3 had three different disc pressings.  There was a Scotch labeled single-sided disc (plastic backing), a Pioneer labeled single-sided disc (metal backing) and a Pioneer labeled double-sided disc.  The Pioneer discs were used on the Japan released Taito version of M.A.C.H 3, which used a Pioneer LD-V1001 laserdisc player.

Conversion Cards - LaserCon is a Laserdisc player conversion card for M.A.C.H. 3.  You can replace any of the above mentioned Pioneer laserdisc players with newer supported Pioneer laserdisc players.  For more information, check out the LaserCon page.

The LaserAce conversion card will let your laserdisc game use a variety of different laserdisc players.  Unfortunately these cards are no longer in production, but can still be found on eBay or the D-L-P Classifieds occasionally.



RCA Wires - When hooking up the disc player in a M.A.C.H. 3, be sure to have the left and right RCA audio cables on the disc player correctly.  One is for audio, and the other is a sync signal between the main board and the disc player.  If you have these cables on backwards, your game will not work.

Interchangeability - Us vs. Them can be played in a M.A.C.H. 3 cabinet with the correct boardset, EPROMs, and laserdisc.
