Game Conversion Information - There were several different versions of this game released as conversion kits for other laserdisc games.  Astron Belt, Bega's Battle, Galaxy Ranger, M.A.C.H. 3, and Us vs. Them were EPROM swaps using each machines original hardware.  Cliff Hanger, Dragon's Lair, Goal To Go, Interstellar, and Space Ace all used a "Conversion" Cobra Command PCB.  There are two different types of these "Conversion"  PCB's.  One is a single board that communicates with the Pioneer LD-V1000 laserdisc player.  The other uses this same board, plus a smaller upper board that adapts it to work with a Pioneer PR-8210 laserdisc player. 

The dedicated Cobra Command used two different hardware configurations.  It either had a Bega's Battle style board which used the Sony LDP-1000 / LDP-1000A or it used the "Conversion" board (single board style as described above) for use with a Pioneer LD-V1000.
