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.



Technical Notes - This document explains the theory of operation for Cliff Hanger.  Authored by James Bright of

Interchangeability - Goal To Go can be played in a Cliff Hanger cabinet by changing the disc and the ROMs.  There is also a conversion kit that allows Cobra Command to be played in a Cliff Hanger cabinet.  This kit came with a dedicated Cobra Command PCB and also a laserdisc controller PCB to allow operation with the PR-8210, and it requires an adapter for the wiring harness.
