11:47 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Sierra Sports has just released a new patch for the excellent pool title Maximum Pool. This small 1.06 update fixes a number of small bugs in the program, as well as adding full support for OS X. In case you haven't heard about the game, Maximum Pool offers a wide variety of traditional and far-out game types. It also includes an easy network play mode for chatting and playing against others around the world. This new update makes it one of the first large sporting titles to be available on OS X. Here's a clip from the web site with info on what else has changed:

  • Fixed a bug in chat display.
  • Fixed 'out of sync' problems with fullscreen mode on Mac OS 8 and Mac OS 9 systems.
  • Fixed a crash bug that would occur while loading the table.
  • Fixed multiple CHATBEEP sound when multiple chat messages came in together.
  • Fixed refresh problem on lobby interface.
  • Added OSX support.
  • Head over now to Macgamefiles to download the update for either Classic or OS X. If you haven't tried the title, give the demo a whirl to see if it's to your liking. Read through IMG's review of the game if you're looking for more details on this title.
