After loserman76 released his 4-Square table, of which I had done the add-a-ball (aab) versions Astro and Star Trek, bord and I had a conversation about the merits of replay vs aab games at home where a replay isn't worth anything really, and a lot of times it's more fun to play the add-a-ball. During that conversation Jack's Open came up, and I knew there had been aab versions of it made, so I did a little research, found some decent images and went to town on Sliderpoint's Jack's Open table. So first, big thanks to sliderpoint and gnance for the Jack's Open version, and pinuck who's table it was based on. I redrew the relevant parts of the playfield to convert it over to Lucky Hand (or Lucky Card), did a lot of re-scripting to change the scoring, built a directb2s for it from an image found online (I started with wildman's image from vpu which was higher res, but the other I found later was clearer imo so I used it instead), did a few minor changes to lighting on the table, swapped in bord's new Gottlieb flipper primitives. Sliderpoint swapped in a couple of different primitives/textures he had, and I left all the physics how he had them, so you can blame him when the ball drains :)
There are options near the top of the script for 3 or 5 ball, replay levels etc if you wish to change any of that. At some point I'll probably add in the left-flipper menu system after the kinks have been worked out, and probably more options like freeplay.
