VP3 with Windows 8.1

Got a new laptop with Windows 8.1 and wanted to transfer VP3 from my old Vista laptop but it will not run. I couldn't even get to the point of entering the security codes. I've tried to run it with various compatibility settings without success. I have vp4 on my desktop but still enjoy VP3. Can anyo...

Re: Snooker Recommendations

I blundered into an easy fix for the opponent not resigning when you have more than a 7 point lead and only the black is on the table. Just pot the white directly and you will win the game! Also works in VP3. I have also noticed, at least in VP3 that when all the spots are occupied and a color is pl...

Re: My view on VP4

I too am surprised that there hasn't been more conversation on this topic. Maybe folks are just waiting for online play. I agree completely with the comments of Hunterp and Fluke. My pot success ration is about 35%. I'm bad but not that bad. I've almost given up trying to pot balls along the cushion...

Snooker Recommendations

Playing Career Mode, I am ahead 57 to 38 and only the black is on the table but my opponent insists on continuing to play for 3 snookers. Opponent should resign if only the black is on the table and opponent trails by more than 7. I have tried to play on trailing by 8 with only the black on the tabl...

Bizarre Bug, I think

Snooker, Career Mode, Hard. I'm playing Iron Mike in the Quarterfinals of a National single elimination race to 3 tournament. We are locked at 2 frames apiece. I have started the 5th frame and decided to check the tournament sheet and it shows that Iron Mike has beaten me 3 to 2 and he is in the sem...

VP4 -Toggle Between Full Screen and Window view

I suspect there may be an easy way to do this without stopping play but I can't seem to find it. Would be nice to check what other proggies are doing while I'm playing.

I guess I should have phrased this as a question. So is there a way? :-k

Re: New Problem With Patch

I discovered this beta version will start with desktop resolution less than 1280 x 768. I assume that's also a fix.

Re: New Problem With Patch

A complete reinstall gives me a one-time start (sometimes). I have done this .

Thanks for the tip zwylle. I'll give it a shot. I am using Avast AV.

Re: New Problem With Patch

I decided to redownloaded the full file and reinstall. My problem has now disappeared. The only thing I changed is that the graphics setting in the game is now the same resolution as my desktop which it never used to be. Maybe the installer was corrupted during download.

New Problem With Patch

After patching to 4.1.1.1 everything seemed OK but when I started VP4 again using the shortcut on my desktop I get "VP4 has stopped working. Windows will attempt to find a solution" and then "Closing Program". I saw the comment about uninstalling the prior version and downloading the full installati...

Pesky Cue Shop Owner

I am playing snooker in hustler and career mode and after every match the Cue Shop Owner compliments me on my form and suggests that I might get good results with a shaft with less deflection. I'd like to try it but whenever I open the Cue case it tells me shafts are not used in this form of play. W...

AI Decision Making

In snooker, every time I foul, my opponent puts me back, even if I have a simple escape or my opponent has a simple shot. Need to improve the decision making. Also after potting a first red and rolling up behind a baulk color, when my opponent fails to contact an object ball, a "miss" is not called....

Editing a Career

I started a career and now I want to add a picture (I may want to change my name at some point too). Can I do this without starting a new career? If so I can't figure out how. Thanks. :beer:

re desktop vs full screen mode, my installation appears to have no way to change this. In settings, graphics, video mode is blank with no selection buttons. Does this indicate a problem?

VP4 Disappearing Cue

Trying out pro tour career mode (normal). Half way through my first match frame all of a sudden when it is my turn there is no cue. It's gone. Holding down s key and moving mouse only changes view angle of table, i.e. does not cause cue ball to be struck. If I put career on hold and reload, the cue ...
