"VERSION 1" TERMINOLOGY ADOPTED FOR EARLY DRAGON'S LAIR PCB - The first Dragon's Lair main PCB has no revision marking on it, and we at D-L-P.com have realized that the only reason we, the laserdisc gaming community, have been referring to this PCB as "revision A" is because its schematic drawing is revision A. But the revision of the drawing is irrelevant. (The schematic for the PCB marked revision C is drawing revision K.) It's more likely that PCB revisions A and B were unreleased developmental steps towards adding support for the LD-V1000 laserdisc player and solving problems with the 4Mhz clock. We have updated this website to change all mentions of a "revision A" (Rev. A) PCB to a "version 1" (v1) PCB for technical accuracy. The three known USA Dragon's Lair / Space Ace PCBs: version 1, version 1 revision C, and version 2 revision A, per their on-board markings, are pictured in the Virtual Library.
