Re: New Patch

What to do is to uninstall VP4 before you format your pc and then do a fulklk download of the game and a re install.This should solve your issues. Heres the download link http://www.celeris.com/ftp/Virtual%20Pool%204-4.1.1.7.exe I've done it now mate...thanks for that! One question tho.....what exa...

The new patch downloaded and installed yesterday, ever since then I haven't been able to play....all I hear is the intro music..no interface loads on the desktop. I've tried repairing the installation but no luck. I have to reinstall my OS anyway as I haven't done so since I had this laptop a year a...

Slow Roll

Im in the middle of a career of bowlliards. (my favourite game along with cowboy which unfortunately you can't play a career on, or play with AI) There was an issue in the previous update where Tall Steve was put as Boss and there was no Slow Roll. This was changed in this update, however... I think...

Re: still a problem with firewall

That is so bizarre. I guess I'll have to install online armor and try it myself to see if I can reproduce it. Obviously online armor is messing with the desktop.

Re: still a problem with firewall

I downloaded the new update yesterday. It didn't fix the problem unfortunately.

Do you think that re-installing the firewall might solve the problem? Is it worth trying or is it best to leave it until you've found the cause of the problem?

Steve. I've installed the new update but there is still an issue with the running VP4 with Online Armor. I can now run VP 4 without shutting down the firewall, however... when on the main menu, the cursor will not move with the mouse, but will only move when I click the mouse button or move the mous...

Re: Annoying problem or bug in VP4 (+POSSIBLE SOLUTION)

Ok, I've had a look at the logs and looked for anything I could find related to VP3. I did allow everything when I initially installed it, but the only thing that is blocked is the "key logger" activity which I only recently blocked as for some reason I didn't have the Anti Keylogger part of the pro...

Re: Annoying problem or bug in VP4 (+POSSIBLE SOLUTION)

Its called Online Armor by emsisoft. I can run the firewall after starting up VP4 and have no problem. Its not the actual firewall thats stopping VP4 from starting up. Its the whole program. for example, I can disable all the protections within the firewall... such as the firewall itself, "webshield...

All of the above. This is from the glossary in the VP4 Help file: Carom Shot 1) A shot in billiards in which the cue ball strikes each of two object balls. 2) A shot in pool in which an object ball is strikes another object ball before falling into a pocket.

Carom!?!?

I've had VP3 since it first came out... the Jeanette version on CD back in 2000(?) and then the curly DL version quite a few years ago. Because of VP3 I've always believed that a carom is when the cue ball hits the object ball and canons into another ball which I know because of one of my favourite ...

Thanks for the swift update steve, problems solved :)

I do still get the problems I posted in another thread regarding the firewall having to be disabled to be able to run it tho. Seems I'm the only one who's having this issue so it must be a problem from my end I guess. Oh well!! Its no biggie

Re: Annoying problem or bug in VP4 (+POSSIBLE SOLUTION)

For me the VPSync solution only improves things as long as i don't use any side or screwback on the cue ball... if I do, then the lag problem is still there. I also notice it when the computer opponent play their shots.

Some things I've tried. Firewall has 3 protections running. Firewall, Web Shield and Program Guard. Each one can be disabled without shuttig down the GUI by right clicking the icon and unticking the options. I've tried disabling each one seperately and trying VP4 each time...

My Screen resolution is 1366x768 and at 32bit (true colour). When I first started it up, I also got the "preference data damaged" message along with those other two I mentioned.
