    So I was looking at high scores for Black Hole and noticed some of the high scores are from pinball arcade, is that normal a lot of those digital machines don't play like the real ones. Just curious.

    I'd ignore them. A lot of them are fake anyway.

    Should be a different format for sure. Not the same at all.

    If this is supposed to be a legit HS tracking area then TPA scores shouldn't be allowed. For that matter any score without a pic of the machine shouldn't either. But it's just a thing "for fun" anyway... 1st world problem.

    The high scores should be taken with a grain of salt, same as the top 100 rankings.

    It's the same shit as people that play with the glass off and rubber bands across the outlanes.

    Or take 10 swipes at the ball on the green and then mark down '3'

    Believe it or not, some of those ultra-high scores on real pins are legitimate.

    For example, check out RGR's high score on the KISS LE/Premium leaderboard. During that game, part of which was captured on video, you can see the score roll at ~4.3 billion at the 06:50 mark in the video...
