"VERSION 1" TERMINOLOGY ADOPTED FOR EARLY DRAGON'S LAIR PCB - The first Dragon's Lair main PCB has no revision marking on it, and we at D-L-P.com have realized that the only reason we, the laserdisc gaming community, have been referring to this PCB as "revision A" is because its schematic drawing is revision A. But the revision of the drawing is irrelevant. (The schematic for the PCB marked revision C is drawing revision K.) It's more likely that PCB revisions A and B were unreleased developmental steps towards adding support for the LD-V1000 laserdisc player and solving problems with the 4Mhz clock. We have updated this website to change all mentions of a "revision A" (Rev. A) PCB to a "version 1" (v1) PCB for technical accuracy. The three known USA Dragon's Lair / Space Ace PCBs: version 1, version 1 revision C, and version 2 revision A, per their on-board markings, are pictured in the Virtual Library.

COMEDIAN AND STAR OF LASERDISC GAME GALLAGHER'S GALLERY DIES - Comedian Leo Anthony Gallagher Jr. has passed away at the age of 76. Gallagher got his start in the mid 1970s performing prop/sketch comedy. His signature sketch was a pitch for the "Sledge-O-Matic," a large mallet that he used to smash a variety of items. In 1992, American Laser Games created the game Gallagher's Gallery, where you shoot at things Gallagher tells you to and then try to stop him from smashing watermelons with the Sledge-O-Matic in the final round. Despite having health issues, Gallagher continued to perform his stand-up routine into the early 2020s when the COVID-19 pandemic forced him to stop.
