Pool Sharks is a fun risk/reward game with cool Brian Eddy software. I’ve seen it listed in tournament banks before and just wondering if there are suggested tournament settings or even a tournament ROM? I ask this for two reasons:
- Two game modes - 8-ball or 9-ball. I assume this should be left up to the player rather than try to force them to play one way or the other. My high scores don’t seem to be much different from one rule set to the other. This could also be interesting in four player games because the player who goes first chooses the mode.
- Carry over Jackpot - This is the one that concerns me more. You can have a jackpot grow to 8 million and then the next player gets one and it is only 1 million. On Radical! I was able to obtain a ROM patch that made the random jackpot the same value every time.
Any other comments on this game in a tournament? Remove the segmented flippers? By the way. I’m a new user here after a lot of lurking. This is my first post!
