The secret bonus little doll with open arms is always located at the same place on each stage. After you have identified the correct "?" box where it appears, you must make sure that the thousands number on your score matches the number of secret bonuses you have already received, before hammering the box. For example, in the first stage it must be 0, in the second stage it must be 1 if you have already collected the secret bonus in stage 1, otherwise it must be 0, and so on.

PLEASE NOTE: The below is true only for the bootleg boards. The original boards by Jaleco are 100 JAMMA compatible.The board is JAMMA, but with the parts and solder side reversed! That is, Pin1 PinA and vice versa. So if you swap the Sync and Blue and the Red and Green, you can plug it in to a JAMMA cab, but it will use the second player controls, coin and start for Player 1.
