Dragon's Lair II Enhancement ROM - (for USA / Cinematronics) - Made in 2015, this ROM allows the original 1983 Dragon's Lair/Space Ace games to play Time Warp.

[2]  ROM version 2.11 only works with the Dragon's Lair II laserdisc part number C-910-00001-00.  This is the 1st pressing of the disc.
[3]  ROM versions 3.xx work with the Dragon's Lair II laserdisc part number C-910-00002-00, which is the 2nd pressing of the disc.
[4]  Spanish ROM version 3.19 compliments the Spanish language laserdisc by displaying the laserdisc player's text overlays in Spanish, but the ROM can also work with the standard 2nd pressing of the disc.

Laserdisc Player Conversion/Replacement - For the USA/Leland game, the Sony LDP-1450 and LDP-3600 laserdisc players cannot be directly substituted with any other models.  The following conversion solutions have been created:

LDP Conversion ROM - The Dragon's Lair II LDP Conversion ROM is a modified ROM image that lets the game use any of the Sony LDP series players such as the LDP-1500, LDP-1550, LDP-2000, and others, at the expense of losing all text overlay functionality.

LDP Replacement - The Dexter board is a solid-state drop-in laserdisc replacement which poses as the laserdisc player and plays the video for the game digitally, from a custom file format.  No player or disc is needed with Dexter.  The text overlays are also produced.  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.

 

 

European Versions - Dragon's Lair II was licensed to Brent Leisure for production and manufacture in most of Europe.  The cabinet is very similar to the Leland release, but the hardware, including the laserdisc player, is totally different.  The game was also licensed to Elettronolo for production and manufacture in Italy.  Most of the hardware for the Elettronolo version is the same as the Brent Leisure version, as well as the cabinet itself.

PC Conversion - With a PC connected to a Sony LDP series player, a Dragon's Lair II laserdisc, and the Dragon's Lair II PC Conversion utility, you can emulate the USA/Leland version of the game on your computer.

Interchangeability - Late in the production run, sales of Dragon's Lair II also included a conversion kit for Space Ace (1991).  The kit included a Space Ace (1991) laserdisc, control panel overlay, marquee, two red fire buttons, button labels, and one EPROM (see the Space Ace Tech Center).  The animation stored on the 1991 laserdisc is the same as the original 1983 laserdisc, but the discs are not directly compatible with each other.  The video footage is not aligned on the same track/frame numbers.

Manufacturers:
Leland (USA, 1991)
Brent Leisure (Europe, 1992)
Elettronolo (Italy, 1992)
Leisure and Allied Industries
(Australia, 1992)

The non-laserdisc arcade re-releases
(post-2000) are not covered here.
