Ive tried a trackball and you still dont get a great feel for a shot. Yeah ... I suppose (despite my initial comment) that I'm struggling not to agree with you, Hugh. Even though you are Scottish. (happy new year, by the way) Thinking on it further, and speaking purely based on personal preference,...

Hmm ... this response probably comes a bit too late for you to see it, but I've never seen an alternative means of control in any of the VP games that I've played - such as keyboard-only control (i.e. VP2, VPH & VP3). The specific implementation of the mouse control is (extremely high standard of th...

Download size is an issue. It should not be but many people still have dial-up and in spite of putting a link to a free download manager that will restart downloads, there are still people who have problems or don't want to download that large a file. Might it be an idea to have optional downloadab...

Aaaaaaaand breathe ... ^_^ My goodness. They say that there's no such thing as bad publicity - and I have to say, I haven't seen the forum so active for years. Congratulations! I think that one would do well to remember that text is a very limited means of communication - so very much is lost in the...

*ahehe* alright guys, go easy on him ... ^_^ In all seriousness, though, I do have one minor gripe regarding the obstruction warning sound effect that I would love to see considered for future iterations of the game. I don't know if others have experienced this, but the more familiar I become with t...

Not wanting to go wildly off-topic, here - but what channel was that on?! The only time I've even heard Mosconi's name mentioned on UK TV was in reference to his contribution to The Hustler ... ^_^

How interesting ... o_O Likewise, I had no idea that there were any television spots. This said, I'm based in the UK, and with all that this implies, the only billiards game to get any notable coverage is snooker ( which, in and of itself is no bad thing, I hasten to add ). ... they really must broa...

Re: Good Ole Boys Hey

It takes someone with courage to stand up and say somethings wrong . Judging by your recent activity, you've got enough courage to make William 'Braveheart' Wallace look like an alpaca with a heart condition. Now, I'm all for people expressing their opinions, but really - we get the message. You do...

:sign6: Your use of monitor should not have any bearing whatsoever on the engine output of your graphics card. Either something else is at play, or it's an optical illusion, so to speak - simply making the game look odd due to the way the colours are displayed. It's certainly true that LCD monitors ...

That's not what I mean, I was wondering why the angle between the line before any cushion and the line after two cushions differs so much. On the second one it's almost parallel, on the first one it's more open. I am using both when I play, I just don't get why it works so differently, physically s...
