G. DISC PLAYER MODEL SELECTION***

Pioneer PR-7820 B3=ON
Pioneer LD-V1000 B3=OFF

* On the Dragon's Lair Limited Edition Laserdisc, the narrator's voice is newly dubbed over the prototype attract mode audio. The original state of the prototype attract mode is without the narrator's voice. DIP switch B4 allows user selection either way for both game modes.

** The prototype game mode setting requires the Dragon's Lair Limited Edition Laserdisc pressed in 2002. The controls for the prototype game differ, as explained in the ROMs' readme file. Note: The PR-7820 disc player is not compatible with the limited edition disc.

*** DLE 2.0 auto-optimizes its video playback to the disc player selected by DIP switch B3. When B3=ON, video segments will stop playing 3 frames sooner than when B3=OFF. If you are using modern disc player conversion hardware, you may be able to use B3 to manipulate the video play time on your system. If scenes end too early, set B3=OFF to extend the video play time. If scenes play too long, set B3=ON to shorten the video play time. (And of course, your conversion hardware must be compatible with the setting of B3.)
