VP4 Questions

Post by jaf2 » Mon Nov 19, 2012 12:09 pm

First off, VP4 is great! I do have a few questions though. First, is there a way to see your statistics in Practice Play? VP3 had that feature. And can you change cues in Practice Play?

Something I've wondered about..... say your playing 9 ball and your opponent breaks and sinks the 9 ball. Your ranking points go down. Should you lose points when you never had a chance to shoot?

Should have wrote "Quick Play" instead of "Practice Play". Haven't found if there's a way to edit posts yet.

Unfortunately there are no statistics in VP4 Quick Play.
I believe the Celeris reasoning behind it was that Quick Play was just designed for a casual match, not the tracking of long term development.

Sure. It happens in real life to. You can lose a whole match without shooting, if there is winner break and your opponent runs multiple racks.
