How come your bonus scores are not correct?

Long way to 100,000 bonus after 100,000

And classic low grade pictures in that area.

The plastics are almost perfect. As long as you over look the 3 missing pieces.

I don't know what is going on here but it looks like Picasso took his brush to the play field.

There was a picture showing just how bad the playfield clearcoat job is on the 1-2-3-4-5 inserts, that appears to have now deleted. Whatever type of coating that was applied, appears to have been brushed on causing brushstrokes and ridging all over the playfield. It’s really bad on that area but the pic is gone now.

The cabinet has been heavily painted. Even the flipper button housings got slapped with what looks like brushed on paint.

Not to mention the broken pop bumper cap, artless repro plastics behind the 5-bank target & in-lanes, strobing LEDs, etc.

I acknowledge French is possibly OP’s primary language, so there could be some language confusion but it's not the second one ever made. Just because others are not listed on https://www.ipsnd.net/ does not preclude them from ever existing.

Absolutely love the bonus scores!

800,000 then 900,000 then 100,000

LOL!

You know what really bothers me more than anything? No one selling specific games seems to actually understand the what and why people pay the money they do for any machine. They could care less and ads like this stick out like a sore thumb. Putting a HEP price on horribly restored game seems commonplace on Pinside recently. It really saddens me that some of them actually sell to new pinball people that don’t know any better. I guess I shouldn’t care how people spend their money but at some point, misrepresentation in ads is deceptive and wrong, even if they do sometimes sell and the seller donates to Pinside. That’s the true crime these days. Because anyone that’s smart can misrepresent a game, sell it to someone new into pinball and as long as they donate to Pinside, mods aren’t really going to care because in the end, what can really be done? Buyer won’t say anything because they are either embarrassed or really can’t because you know, the pictures of what they bought were there, archived in sales history. No such thing as internet pinball forum police. I know pinball people that know each other all try to kind of look out for each other but honestly, it never discourages misrepresentation and it never will. (Insert old man shouting at cloud pic in next post!)

that restore job on the playfield is terrible. I've had to do a ton of cheetahs over the years, and those bonus fonts are wayyyyy off. Besides being wrong. and if this was a true sample game, wouldn't there be rubber near the flippers on the inlanes. Samples I've seen, had the L brackets, and then a star post with rubber right by the crotch of the flipper on both sides.
