Different EPROM for LD-V1000 - This EPROM is needed if you are using an LD-V1000 that was previously in a Badlands.  You will need to change the EPROM inside the LD-V1000.  Download the Pioneer LD-V1000 EPROM here.

Conversion Cards - LaserCon is a Laserdisc player conversion card for Space Ace (USA / Cinematronics and Europe / Atari versions only).  You can replace any of the above mentioned Pioneer and Philips laserdisc players with newer supported Pioneer laserdisc players.  LaserCon lets you use the 1991 Leland Space Ace laserdisc in the older 1983 Cinematronics machine.  LaserCon also lets you use the 1983 (NTSC) and 1991 (NTSC) Space Ace laserdisc in the 1983 European/Atari machine. (requires additional hardware). For more information, check out the LaserCon page.

The Hi-Tech conversion card is also for Space Ace (USA / Cinematronics only).  You can replace the original Pioneer laserdisc players with a newer supported Sony laserdisc player.  For more information, check out the Hi-Tech 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.

 

 

Merlin MultiROM - Merlin is a direct replacement for the original EPROM board used in Dragon's Lair and Space Ace.  It includes Dragon's Lair rev F2, Space Ace rev A3, DLE, SAE, and optionally, DL2E.  Merlin allows ROMs to be swapped by using the joystick and button.  For more information, check the LaserCon page.

European Versions - Space Ace (83) was licensed to Atari for production and manufacturing in Europe.  The cabinet was very similar to the Cinematronics release, but the hardware, including the laserdisc player was totally different.  Atari sub-licensed Space Ace to Sidam for production and manufacturing in Italy.  Most of the hardware for the Sidam version was the same as the Atari version, but the cabinet design was totally different.  Space Ace (91) was licensed to Atari for production and manufacturing in Europe.  Atari sub-licensed Space Ace (91) to Elettronolo for production and manufacturing in Italy.  Most of the hardware for the Elettronolo version was the same as the Atari version as well as the cabinet, itself.

Home Brew Conversions - A do-it yourself conversion card!  Check out Robert DiNapoli's PC conversion.

Enhancement ROMs - These ROMs make use of the laserdisc's full potential.  Check out Dave Hallock's Space Ace Enhancement.

DIP Switch Remap - With this replacement ROM image, your Space Ace DIP switch settings will be more closely matched to Dragon's Lair.  Also, the skill level selection can now be set via DIP switch.  Check out the Space Ace DIP Switch Remap page.

Monitor Swap - If the monitor in your Dragon's Lair, Space Ace, or Thayer's Quest is not up to your liking, you can replace that monitor with a 19" TV.  The Monitor Swap Tech Page will show you everything you need to know.

68705 Bypass Mod - Update for older Rev. A DL/SA PCBs.  See the 68705 Bypass Modification Tech Page for more information.

Volume Control Hack - Shaun Wood comes thru with a neat hack for the "move beeps" in Dragon's Lair or Space Ace.  Now you can adjust the move beep volume if it is too loud or soft for your environment.  Check one Shaun's Space Ace Volume Control Hack.

Interchangeability - Dragon's Lair can be played in a Space Ace cabinet simply by changing the laserdisc and the EPROMS.  Dragon's Lair II came with a conversion kit for Space Ace (91).  The kit included a Space Ace laserdisc (91), control panel overlay, marquee, two 'fire' buttons, and one EPROM.  Although the animation on this Space Ace (91) laserdisc was the same as the original Space Ace version (83), they are not compatible with each other.  In other words, you cannot use an original Space Ace laserdisc and EPROMs in a Dragon's Lair II nor can you use the Space Ace (91) disc and EPROM in an original Space Ace cabinet.

Engineering Mode - Engineering mode was designed to let the engineers play-test a scene without having to play through the whole game.  To learn more about this, check out Jeff Kulczycki's info on the Engineering Mode for Space Ace.

LD-V1000 Boot Switch - A simple inexpensive way to build a switch that issues a play command to your LD-V1000 or LD-V1001Check it out here.
