1. zuerst öffnen sie google translate;
2. Geben Sie Ihre Abfrage ein und sehen Sie, was es Ihnen sagt.

Ich hoffe, das hilft!

All the scientists were German?
That's strange.
Maybe change the sound board.

If you remember playing pinball in the 70s you were having a good time.

I think you need to swap the sound rom for an english version.

Sound is in English- whats written on the displays is German. I was hoping that it was a case of going through the menu and selecting a language or resetting to factory- itwould appear not though so im now wondering if the game roms are German only?
