ARTHUR IS RELEASED -
Shaun Wood at LaserCon has developed the
Arthur PCB Replacement for Dragon's Lair and Space Ace games, to substitute
for the main logic board. Slightly smaller than the original board, Arthur
incorporates all the previous Merlin MultiROM technology, which allows the options of
multi-game play and laserdisc player model upgrades. Arthur also natively integrates
the Space Ace annunciator board circuitry and a volume control for the joystick feeback sounds.

Visit our new forum where you can see
and share the locations of laserdisc arcade game sightings. Find out where on the
current map you can play laserdisc games today, and then browse through the much larger map
of past locations, where our community shares their memories of the spots where they saw
laserdisc games back when they were new. Find your own local haunts on the maps, and
either submit them if they're not already marked, or confirm the existing records!

DRAGON'S LAIR COMES TO THE TI-99/4A COMPUTER - Software developer Mike
Brent has licensed Dragon's Lair for release on cartridge for the Texas Instruments
TI-99/4A produced in 1981. His new hardware design for the cartridge, as well as some
uniquely crafted software, allow this TI computer to play the video for the entire game at
a resolution of 192x128 with 15 colors at about 9 FPS and 13khz audio, which would have
dropped jaws in the mid 1980s, and is now primed to become the most impressive
of Dragon's Lair on any machine from the pre-CD-ROM era, considering its full game
content. The game's release is scheduled for early 2019 with a production quantity of
up to 100.
