Star Rider - ROM Images (PROTO 5 / REV 1) Star Rider - ROM Images (CPU PROTO 3) Star Rider PIF ROM Update - Made in 2017, this ROM (#26 / U3) can improve
the reliability of original hardware that may be prone to causing crashes with age.
Star Rider will not work with a regular PR-8210 laserdisc player. For more information on how the PR-8210 and
PR-8210-A communicate with arcade games, check out the PR-8210 / PR-8210-A page.
PR-8210 to PR-8210-A Conversion - The Pioneer PR-8210-A Conversion document shows how to
transplant parts out of a dead PR-8210-A into a working PR-8210 to convert it for use with Star Rider.
Laserdisc Player Replacement - Only one successful method for replacing the PR-8210-A laserdisc player in Star Rider has been
developed. The Dexter board is a drop-in replacement* which poses
as the laserdisc player and plays the video for the game digitally, from a custom file format. Dexter accepts
the original commands from the PCB through the original interface cable. Dexter has been going in and out of production multiple times,
per demand, via pre-order process only. *Dexter is 100% compatible as of rev 3g. Rev 3d, 3e, & 3f are fully compatible when the
PIF ROM Update is installed.
PIF ROM Update - If your game is prone to intermittent software crashes and rebooting, try the 2017
PIF ROM Update (ROM #26 on the PIF board at location U3) to allow greater
tolerance with disc player response time.
