Diagnostics ROM Package - To aid with PCB troubleshooting, Shaun Wood offers an improved
Diagnostics ROM Redo, which also contains the archive of the original, flawed Cinematronics diagnostics package.
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 DL2E. Merlin allows ROMs to be swapped by using the
joystick and button. For more information, check the LaserCon site.
Arthur PCB Replacement - Arthur is a replacement main logic board for Dragon's Lair and Space Ace. The
circuitry for the ROMs and the Space Ace annunciator are integrated onto one main PCB. Arthur also has all the functionality of the
Merlin MultiROM products built in. For more information, check the LaserCon site.
European Versions - Space Ace was licensed to Atari for production and manufacturing in Europe. The cabinet is very similar to
the Cinematronics release, but the hardware, including the laserdisc player, is totally different. Atari sub-licensed Space Ace to Sidam
for production and manufacturing in Italy. Most of the hardware for the Sidam version is the same as the Atari version, but the
cabinet design is completely 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.
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. See 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 it with a 19"
TV. The Monitor to TV Swap page will show you everything you need to know.
68705 Bypass Mod - An update for older rev. A Dragon's Lair / Space Ace PCBs. See the
68705 Bypass Modification page for more information.
Volume Control Hack - Now you can adjust the volume of the joystick feedback sound in Dragon's Lair or Space Ace if it is too loud or soft
for your environment. Check out Shaun Wood's Dragon's Lair 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 had a
conversion kit for Space Ace ('91). The kit included a Space Ace ('91) laserdisc, control
panel overlay, marquee, two "fire" buttons, and one EPROM containing the Leland ROM image above. The animation stored on the
Space Ace ('91) laserdisc is the same as the original 1983 laserdisc, but the discs are not directly compatible with each other. The
video footage is not aligned on the same track/frame numbers.
Engineering Mode - Engineering mode was designed to let the engineers playtest a scene without having to play through the whole game. To
learn more about this, see 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 the LD-V1000 or LD-V1001. See the
LD-V1000 Boot Switch page.
