Fix for crash when using foreign language setting keyboards.
Added an option 'raw data mode' for mouse. This mode is more accurate, however, you need to make sure 'mouse managers' are disabled as they conflict with reading raw data from the mouse. If this option does not work for you it can be disabled in the Settings/Mouse menu.

POOR! - I have been playing this game for a few weeks. I find it aggravating. If I play on amateur level I win everytime without any challenge. If I play on skilled level, the computer opponent runs the table except for the last ball and then will miss it over and over again until I win. If I play on shark level the computer runs the tablel I will lose every game. The computer opponent has mastery over English, rails, jumping the cue ball… you on the other hand can’t even tell how much English is being applied. furthermore if you play a great game and the computer doesn’t have a shot, it will tap it’s own ball to hide behind it leaving you no shot. when you can’t strike your ball it shows it as a fault and the computer uses ball in hand to win the game. Even with training aids turned on, if you try bank or cue off of the rail the tracks will show you’re on… and you’ll miss 8 out of 10 shots. The computer on the other hand always makes every shot. If you want to win without any challenge and then try a harder level on to have nothing work for you… this might be your game… but I hate it!

MEnu bar and Dock get in the way while in full screen - The game is great! My only problem is that if your mouse pointer goes to hi or low, either the Dock or the Menu bar appear and that messes up game play… it can get frustrating. Developers, please kill access to menu bar and dock while in full screen! we don’t need those, while playing or if we do we can just Cmnd Tab. Thanks!
MAC User’s Beware - Unable to play against others via the MAC os. Wish I had this info prior to purchase! I like my progression within regular play but I feel I’m missing out if unable to challenge others.
Please Upgrade! - I love this game and would easily give it five stars, but ever since I upgraded to the latest OS for mac, it isn’t working! Hopefully you guys can fix this? Thanks!
No Background Music?? - All things are perfect except that there are no sounds, anything wrong? I know it should have some background music when I run a career since I played 3rd version before. I really like this game and please fix this.
karl - graphics are the best i've seen ever
