Conversion Cards - The original Pioneer LD-V1000 laserdisc player is not natively compatible with any other model for a direct substitution.  Various products have been developed over the years to allow replacement/upgrade of the laserdisc player.

Dexter is the newest product.  No laserdisc 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.  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.

 

 

Interchangeability - Inter Stellar Laser Fantasy can easily be converted to Esh's Aurunmilla by following the steps outlined below by Matteo Marioni and Brendon Zeidler.

Remove the Inter Stellar main PCB (set of three boards) and the laserdisc from the Inter Stellar cabinet.  Esh's Aurunmilla uses the Sound PCB, the Super Impose PCB, and all the same wiring in an original Inter Stellar cabinet.  Be careful when hooking up the Esh's PCB to the wiring.  Inter Stellar uses two black harness connectors, but only one is used by the Esh's PCB.  Use the black harness connector that carries most of the wiring (it's a little bigger than the other connector), and it should be inserted with the red wire (+ 5V) on the right side.  Pin 1 of the Esh's connector is GND and pins 3 & 4 are +5V, so be careful before hooking it up.  If you are not sure which wire is +5V on the Inter Stellar wiring harness, a DC voltage meter may help.  The 6-pin connector on the Esh's PCB on the right, labeled "CN 1", is the "PCB generated audio output".  It goes into the "CPU IN" audio connector on the Inter Stellar sound board.  Finally, connect the Esh's PCB to the LD-V1000 and install the Esh's disc.

There is also a conversion kit that allows Cobra Command to be played in an Inter Stellar cabinet.  This kit came with a conversion Cobra Command PCB, conversion ROM set, and a standard Cobra Command laserdisc.

LD-V1000 Boot Switch - A simple inexpensive way to build a switch that issues a play command to the LD-V1000 or LD-V1001.  See the LD-V1000 Boot Switch page.
