Summary0002721: Hi how are you? Was just wondering if you could help me out to clear something
DescriptionGameVersion: english,pal,2 disks
SlaveVersion: 1.0 from 20.05.2000

Hi how are you?
Was just wondering if you could help me out to clear something up that i don't understand . I used to have the A 500 and 1200 machine , I had a special version of ww snooker , that actualy ran a lot faster and a lot smoother than the version for the 500 . I remember that on booting up you had the option of nstc or pal , this was a copy on diskette.
   Since then i've installed dosbox on my vista system and am able to play
once again , having the option within the game of speeding up the graphics a little , but it's no where near as smooth.
Not sure if i'll ever get to the bottom of this or find out if there's an emulator that runs the amiga version ( I know Winuae dosen't ) So i don't know if you could shed any light on this for me . I used to play a lot when i was 15 now I'm 42 and have moved to Spain . There's no other and for me it's the god of snooker games.
Best regards. Peter.

You probably played a cracked version which had a PAL/NTSC switch in the bootblock. The game runs perfectly fine in WinUAE.
