"At night it reminds me of the old Atari Night Driver game."

Not really funny, but IMHO still interesting. Found this image while following the link from the Hard Drivin' thread.

Thanks for making this plain. I edited my post. The seller of the Space Ace LD additionally posted that "both labelsides are complete white. In the deadwax is machine stemped : CDV 7384 AL made by SONOPRESS Germany" - is this a reference to the arcade or Software Corner release?

Just in case someone is looking for Dragon's Lair and/ or Space Ace laserdiscs:

Two Dragon's Lair LDs (here and here) and one Space Ace LD (here) are for sale on Ebay at the moment (not my auctions).

Some weeks ago, I bought a Software Corner Dragon's Lair kit for the Amiga.



I connected the computer to my Pioneer CLD-S315 LD player (via control in) and was expecting to see the screens, familiar from this thread.

It seems that there are different versions of the control program available:



I uploaded the Italian version (DL_Control_it.zip - don't remember where I found it) and the version from my control disk (DL_Control_ger.zip) here.

I don't know what's wrong, but Dragon's Lair is unplayable on my setup. I've read online, that the laserdiscs from Software Corner are mastered with an offset to prevent the use in arcade machines (and vice versa). I play with a later version of the Software Corner Dragon's lair LD (not the relabeled arcade disc) - why doesn't the LD player jump to the correct frames (for example when I die in the second scene, the LD player plays the death scene from the first scene (draw bridge scene)).

I guess, either my LD player isn't fully compatible with the originally required LD players or my control program needs the arcade LD (I couldn't try Darth Nuno's version because I had problems transfering the disk image from PC to Amiga - although Amiga to PC worked).

Anyway, feel free to upload my DL control disks to Dragonslairfans.com.

Hi everyone,

some years ago I found this forum while searching for the Dragon's Lair control disk for the Amiga computer. Since then, I'm a regular reader of your exciting arcade road trip reports, restauration projects and Darth Nuno's report about building his lairs. I enjoy the friendly atmosphere and am fascinated by your abilities.

Since I'm no arcade collector myself (I'd love to get a Ridge Racer and Killer Instinct arcade machine if I'd the room in my flat), I had no possibility to contribute something useful here.

The reason why I now registered is, because I bought a Software Corner Dragon's Lair kit some weeks ago and want to share my control disk(s) with the community (and to say thank you for your interesting stories and reports).
