taito Shark

Based on the Taito table from 1982.
Thanks to Tio Italo and Carlos Guizzo for the source images.
I have included a zip file with the Apron translated in English by Tio. The file is a replacement for the plastics image in the table, in case you prefer that.
Thanks to Pmax65 for the nvram fix script.

Very cool. I had not seen this table before. Looks great!

very nice table,thank jpsalas,now run  to play it

This has some neat tweaks that make it distinctly different from Flight 2000.
Thanks for providing the opportunity to play this rare machine.

Qué grande JP!!!! Nuevas 80s!  raras, desconocidas!!! Excelente!!!!!

nice table , but the apron is the same as the table

Awesome release again, thanks JP, Tio and Carlos for this beauty!



Great table, but I'm not getting any game (rom) sounds

Thanks JP , great table , fun to play . Taito from Brazil pinball machines were extremely popular during the 80 s in that country , mainly cause the restrictions  to import their USA counterparts at that time .Thats why most of them were clones from Williams and Gottliebs machines with just different names and rules but same layouts . !
