Set your challenge room to any table you want

Post by 9balldotcom » Sat Oct 16, 2010 3:15 am

Ok so you want to set a 9ball challnge room in the vp3 lobby online in gamespy,but you dont want to play on the garage table.
Ive finally worked out how you can play and also with a shot clock as well on any table you like,but first you have to do a little preperation first.

The way I did it was as follows

I set an online LAN game with only me in the room and i chose for example Deep Pockets,which is the red table and 9ball and i also added a 25 second shot clock.
After I played one shot i went to the in game manu and saved the game and called it Deep pockets and i then quit the game.

I then browsed my computer and opened the CELERIS/vp3 folder and browsed to the user file folder and draggged the Deep Pockets save to my that so far?

Then I went to the gamespy vp3 lobby and set a challenge 9ball room with championhip settings on the garage and with a 25 second shot clock...BUT and heres the but, as soon as i hit the start button I alt tabbed to my desktop and i clicked on my Deep Pockets game save file and then went back into my room id set and voila its now set at Deep pockets and its 9ball with a 25 second shot clock.

You would do exactly the same for hard times or the hawg pen etc.

As I had the time Ive made shortcuts for the other tables not notmally used for challenge tables,so you can download them to your desktop and use them to choose whateve r table you want for your 9ball challenge room ... 0House.rar ... 0Times.rar ... ockets.rar ... 20Stop.rar

PS You need winrar to open the files,then just leave them on your desktop and you can click whatever room you want .
