I do much better on real hardware with Commando Raid for some reason.

 

Commando Raid:

36,615

With Trick Shot, there are only 32 possible angles for each shot. If you're patient enough, you can figure them all out.  :)

 

Trick Shot:

37

Commando Raid - 57,480
Trick Shot - 37

I ordered a Harmony cartridge so I can play more. I don't have it yet but I do have these 2 games!

I plan to do better on Commando Raid.

There are games that click on me and I dominate in a short period o time, there are other ones that after days o practice become a good player on it, and then there are a game that after so many times without making any progress I make no effort to conquer  :mad: Commando Raid 51425 points

OK I swear I upgraded my Stella. CGA screenshots persist, must be something odd about my personal setup.

 

Stella!!!

Actually the odd screenshots are kinda growing on me :)

Trick Shot 15

 

This is the best I have ever been able to do. I don't have Nathan Strum kind of time where I can try, and remember, all 32 possible options for each table.  Still really enjoy the game and played it like it was real pool back in the day.

I wrote them down. And I didn't have to go through all 32, I just had to go through enough to find the one that worked. Most of the time I'd hit it in less than 16 attempts. Some just a few.

If you are willing to do some testing, please contact me by PM and we can try to figure out what's going on.  You're the only person I've seen with this problem so far, so I really want to hear back from you and get it fixed.
