Look at how the video cable is sticking straight out of the Dexter, into where the back door needs to be. I have to say this looks like the wrong place to mount De...

Re: Mounting Dexter board in Dragon's Lair / Space Ace cabin

I haven't heard about, or seen any pictures from, anyone who has permanently mounted a Dexter. Since most people's games are not being moved around, I think that most collectors are wisely not drilling new holes into their cabinets, and might be why no one has replied with pics. My strategy for a pe...

Dragon's Lair II Enhancement for Merlin-Dx/Dexter multigame

After a year+ of poring over details and trying to seamlessly integrate 3 different pieces of software, 3 pieces of hardware, and edit a new video file, the Merlin-Dx multigame system now offers all three Bluth games in one cabinet with quick joystick selection! Tha...

Re: Dexter with Hi Tech card, & Limited Edition ROMs

I'm not positive, but what I think Matt meant to ask is: Does the attract mode run normally, or does Dexter continue to play through the whole laserdisc file after the attract demo is done playing? If you are using the DLE ROMs, and you heard the attract sound once and then you heard nothing else, t...

Re: Dexter board not working right in DL2 game--ideas?

You can play SA if you burn this ROM image http://www.dragons-lair-project.com/tech/roms/sa_91.zip to an EPROM and install it in place of your DL2 EPROM, and also change your joystick from a 4-way to an 8-way. You cannot use the DL video or play DL with a Leland DL2 PCB. You paid 1 cent extra for th...

Re: Dexter board not working right in DL2 game--ideas?

Dexter contains no software for playing different games; it provides laserdisc video only and displays the video according to instructions sent by the game's PCB & ROM. Loading Dexter's video file for DL in your DL2 game is the equivalent of installing a DL laserdisc into your DL2's LDP-1450. Us...

Re: Dragon's Lair: Smeared rainbow colored screen with G07

I am guessing that Matt will say
EDIT: Nope, I take it back. My guess might not have been good, actually. But ultimately, Merlin + Hi-Tech + Dexter is going to be a recipe for trouble. It is strongly advised to eventually stop using the hi-tech card and upgrade to Merlin-Dx firmware.
