Conversion Cards - Various products have been developed over the years to allow replacement/upgrade of the laserdisc player.
Dexter is the newest product. Unlike the other products below
which convert to a newer laserdisc player model, no player or disc is needed with Dexter. The Dexter board is a drop-in
replacement which poses as a 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 or infrared
signals. Dexter has been going in and out of production multiple times, per demand, via pre-order process only.
LaserCon is a laserdisc player conversion card that allows the game to use
newer supported Pioneer players. LaserCon is no longer in production.
The LaserAce conversion card allows the game to use a variety of different Pioneer and Sony laserdisc
players. LaserAce is no longer in production.
