No Laserdisc Player - The game will work with or without a laserdisc player via a setting change.  If there was a problem with the laserdisc player, the game would automatically recognize this and change the setting to "no disc player" automatically.

Modified Laserdisc Player
- The game did not use a standard laserdisc player. The laserdisc player, or any other laserdisc players for that matter, did not have the features they wanted so they made their own controller and installed it inside the player. So each laserdisc player had to be customised for the game.
This allowed them to disable the audio and video squelch controls as well as have instant access to variable forward and reverse playback. So when playing the game the laserdisc playback could be varied greatly and this enabled a less linear view of the laserdisc content and enabled interesting effects. Eg. during the game the video plays forward then backwards (about half the amount of frames played forward) in a surging type of way (with audio) and the result is quite interesting to watch.
Like in other games such as Firefox the laserdisc player was given a real workout and, being the laserdisc player a domestic or home version (because they were cheaper then the professional ones), it did tend to give trouble even after fairly moderate usage.
