Cocoa Poker For Mac Publisher's description
from Peter Schart
Cocoa Poker is a video poker game for Mac OS X.
Cocoa Poker is a video poker game for Mac OS X. It has been around in one form or another since shortly after OS X 10.0 was released but it was only foisted upon the unwashed masses sometime in October 2002. Before that it existed only as a small program written to learn more about Cocoa and Objective-C. Eventually the game progressed to a point where I thought it was a fairly decent (if not simplistic) little game and I decided to release it to see what people would think of it. The response was mostly positive and I continued to improve the game both with my own ideas and with the ideas and submissions (read: better artwork than I could make) of many people who wrote to tell me their thoughts about the game.
The game is fairly simple to play: set your preferences (there are many options that can be set by the user, see the screenshots page for more info), decide how much you want to bet and press the 'Deal' button. Then take a look at your cards and decide which, if any, cards you would like to trade in for new ones and click the 'Draw' button. If your hand is as good as or better than the (user-definable) lowest paying pair then you win a (user-definable) multiple of your bet. It could be as low as just getting your bet back or as high as your bet times 1000. That's the gist of it, so if that sounds like something you'd enjoy
What's New in This Release:В· Fixed a bug where clicking deal/draw again after a deal/draw has started would cause havoc.
В· I believe the above should also (finally) fix the duplicate card bug.
В· Compiled with Xcode to hopefully run on Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther). It runs fine in Panther on all the machines I've tested it on. Let me know if your experience is different. Should still also run on 10.2 and up but probably not 10.1 and down, your mileage may vary.
System Requirements:No special requirements.
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
