Pioneer LD-V1000 (with EPROM change)
Different EPROM for LD-V1000 -
Konami modified the LD-V1000's ROM to include an extra command which enhances
game play. It allows the same scenes to play differently and adds to the random element in the game.
A standard Pioneer LD-V1000 will not work in a Badlands. The EPROM inside the laserdisc player must be changed first.

Conversion Cards - The original Pioneer LD-V1000 laserdisc player is not natively
compatible with any other model, making direct substitution impossible. Various products have been developed over the
years to allow replacement/upgrade of the laserdisc player.
Dexter is the newest product. No laserdisc player or disc is
needed with Dexter. The Dexter board is a drop-in replacement which poses as a laserdisc player and plays the video for the
game digitally, from a custom file format without video compression. 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.
The LaserAce conversion card allows the game to use a variety of different Pioneer and Sony laserdisc
players. LaserAce is no longer in production.
